Introduction Juvenile delinquency due to gang relation has increased drastically. Many people fail to realize that gangs have a considerable influence on the decisions juveniles are making. Adolescents are easily influenced by the members of the gangs and manipulated to commit certain crimes.

Juveniles become a part of gangs for several reasons, including, gaining protection, governmental, and social issues.

The Mara Salvatrucha or MS-13 is an international gang that was initiated in Los Angeles, California in the 1980s that were Hispanics. Most of the members in the gang is culturally composed of Central Americans. The gang is mostly in the neighborhood where their lives people that are poor or living in poverty. The gang has now stretched towards other areas besides Central America. Some of the areas where MS-13 is affiliated is El Salvador, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
Because of this, it represents that people who join gangs join because of the injustice they may feel they are facing. Because they were growing in “popularity”, Al Capone and his men decided that they should continue with their business, “in his private war against others who also wanted to bootleg liquor, he organized a gang of 1,000 men who “ran” Chicago. In the years 1926 and 1927 Capone’s gangsters were responsible for about 130 murders- most of them were connected to the illegal business of liquor” (pg.42 Barden, Ronardo). They could not help themselves from their illegal actions. This is relevant to today's gangs, because gang members work for one person or persons and they commit crimes that the main gang leader wants them to do or does as well.
Most of the gangs in the United States started from the urban regions. Despite the belief that the gang has been existing from a very long time, the gang in the United States started at around 19th century specifically at major cities such as New York, other cities like Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, as well as Miami and other major cities. The poor sections of the cities provided a more room for the vice in the United States. The gangs were based on ethnicities such as the Irish, Italians, and polish among many other ethnicities in the USA. The gangs were organized in groups that included; the shirt tails, who could wear their shirts outside their pants as a sign of group affiliation.

Although they may seem different when it comes to philosophy, they certainly have similarities between each other. MS-13 and M-18 are two Latino street gangs structured to run as a business. The influence of illegal immigrant’s population caused a rise in gang activity.

Gang effects on the community: Gangs has their own culture and characteristics that includes their dress codes, identifying symbols, language, graffiti, drugs use &trafficking, use of other narcotics, and involvement in other illegal activities.
