This shows that Johnny joined the gang for the protection of himself, but, as stated before, the gang would have to fight others to protect Johnny. The last explanation on why gangs fight is because of the continuous cycle of violence. The cycle of violence is an explanation of how violence can cause more violence, and the article Rest in Peace Doc states an example of the cycle of violence.
