How does gang violence puts an impact on society? Gangs have turned the society into a war zone between different gangs. Educating people about gangs would have people thinking should they really join. People should know the history of gang violence and the types of gangs they should look out for so they could stay away. Gang violence is nothing someone should play around with because you can get killed or even in trouble with the law for just associating with them.
Examine and discuss the impact of gangs on society using research evidence to support argument. Introduction When citizens hear about the word gangs, the first thing that comes to mind with most of us are negative thoughts about criminality. This is because of the activities that gang members engage in and the lifestyle that they portray. There is no one true meaning for the term gangs because it is based on the view and interest of the person defining it, the trends, and the changing social aspect of the gang. It is stated that many large communities are at great risk of significant gang activity.
Now the question that was left behind is why did gangs turn violent and the most accurate/common answer is the impact of poverty and lack of resources, you might still be asking what that has to do with violence well since members were in lack of money they began to sell drugs doing drive-by shootings, and breaking into homes. The second most common reason is they are in lack of resources. In most cases gang members come from families that either were gang affiliated themselves when they were younger and want their kids to follow in the same footsteps or families where parents are non-responsive and also have drugs around them some of the time, and when they join a gang they get a sense of belonging to something important/ belonging to family because although they sell drugs or do what they do they show love.
INTODUCING PROBLEM: Crime in Chicago has been followed by the Chicago Police Office's Department of Records since the start of the twentieth century. The city's general Crime rate, particularly the violent crime rate, is generously higher than the US normal. The explanations behind the higher numbers in Chicago stay misty. An investigation in The Atlantic demonstrates no genuine proof of exact reasons, just speculation. Chicago saw a noteworthy ascent in brutal crime beginning in the late 1960s.
Gangs started in the early eighteen hundreds and have continued to grow. A few of the reasons people join gangs are that they are looking for acceptance, money, or security. Some gang members come from a poor home life. Eighteenth-century gangs were not as violent as what they are today. The presence of gangs has a negative impact on city tourism, attractions, and population.
Atlanta sex trafficking is also changed because of the location socioeconomic standards. Child sex trafficking in Atlanta is one of the highest in the United States. “Atlanta was named by the FBI as one of 14 US cities with the highest rate of children used in prostitution (Covent House,2017).” This is high because of the change in environment that the airport did to the city. Another article states, “"In Georgia, we know there 's a range from 200-300 girls that are trafficked each month in our city. And tonight there will be 100 girls that will be exploited in metro Atlanta,( Bowley,2015)" This article explains that although Georgia has a large amount of sex trafficking, Atlanta is an overwhelming amount of those girls.
In today 's society, there is always stereotypes about juveniles not just the fact that they have committed a crime at any point of their life, indeed by the drug influence, background, or race. In an article called 'It seems that we can only be interesting if we are smoking, snorting or stabbing ', it stated, that “One stereotype of young people today is that they are all thieving, knife-carrying, troublemakers who waste most of their time dossing about”(Dominique Mitchell.) Judging them to expeditious to even realize if there was an explanation for all of this nonsense. Adults seem to exaggerate in any case as police officers can pull you off from the streets because of the way you dress. In any case, there have been news reports that indicate how people distinguish us and anticipate juveniles or non-juveniles presuming they are a threat to society.
The strain theory, most notably associated with Robert Merton (1968) posits that anomie develops in individuals because of a recognized gap between individual?s goals and what they can achieve through legitimate means. In so for these gang members to achieve their financial goals they resort to drugs, arms dealing and trafficking. However does this yearning for these individuals goals allow these youth to enter a petty gang without a set hierarchy or is it that they enter into an organized group or network of gang members? Organizations tend to focus on goals rather than
The first lie I was told about gangs is that they are formed with an intent to cause harm to others and to create a dangerous environment. While these situations seem to be prevalent among gangs, it is not their goal to create such an environment. Gangs are generally composed of African-American men living in impoverished neighborhoods who are seeking some sense of stability and support in their lives. The reason they turn towards gangs and gang behavior for this support is that they are “...trapped in a political and economic system that oppresses them” in the United States and not simply joining out of delinquency (Keiser 2007:74). These men, usually quite young, see their community struggle to support itself, watch people rotate in and out of prisons, and understand the struggle they will face in such an oppressive society that they are destined to fight back against.
Many homicides are related to conflict or disputes between family members, friends and lovers. Thus, law enforcement officials are able to connect and link the victims to someone that they know. But in the case of serial killers, due to their aggressive and impulsive behavior, they usually do not have a set motive for their killings, so their victims can range from loved ones to complete strangers. Their constant drive for fulfillment and fantasy makes them even more susceptible to horrendous crimes against many different individuals. This makes it difficult for police to track serial killers and link them to the crimes.
