I Need Your Help at a Project

Unread postby asidxl » March 24th, 2014, 11:40 am

Hey all


I am making a project about gang activity at LA and the main subject is choices, choices that the gang member did that led him to getting involved in gang activity.

I need a documentary or an article that follows a teen/ex gang member/whatever you can find that will help me, so I can write about his choices. Or just make up a story, lol.

Thank you for helping me!

It's not always a choice. A lot of times it's about coercion, which kids don't really understand at the time. Sometimes, they look out for you when no one else does and give you feigned respect you never had before. Other times it becomes clear that you're living in a war zone and if you don't join you're on your own. You can get beat up by any gang, or have one gang having your back and deterring others from going after you. Put a 10 or 11 year old in that position, what are they supposed to do? Teens who join, they do it for various reasons. However, lets differentiate gangs from clicks. Gangs are a social problem, not a personal problem.
