Would You Start A Gang Or Subset If You Could?

This is the forum for those who believe that there are other options to gangs and violence and hope to see young people make better choices about their future. Where does change begin?

Would You Start A Gang Or Subset If You Could? If so, why? Those who dare to answer this question, I will challenge your reasoning.

Do 2-5 man hustle squads count as a gang?

I'd like the youngas of London town to come answer your question, because lil' gangs are popping up like neighbourhood infections right now. A foolishness and a destruction of our youth. What the hell happened to positive rebellion. But hey, I'm old school, what do I know!

i myself wouldn't start a gang because it brings too much attention to me and my activities.
plus gangs eventually lead to unnecessary rivalries and beefs that may interfere with my "pursuit of happiness."

:lol: :lol: :lol:
thats only gonna last about a month before dudes hit the same area too much and push up police patrols.
and "taking from the rich" works best when you only have to split the loot between 2-5 people.

depends... if they catch the suspects, and they all fit the "same profile"

lets say... all of them are black, or all Mexican, or all Asian.

lets say... all of them are poor.

lets say... all of them look, dress, and talk a certain way.

Then how do you think that will affect their mentality and the mentality of their rich, influential friends?

Do you ever think sometimes, that some people join a gang because they can't stand up on their own? Sort of like, it takes a few people to do the work of one?
