The concept of gangs is a simple, but complex as the mind of man slips further away from logic due to social issues becoming a gateway to violence. Gangs have become a scapegoat to identity and power due to those stuck in poverty and those who are vilified by society in the middle class. The psychology of gangs is perplexing today more than ever, it has moved from a need for something to a suicidal mission which can put every one at risk. The sociological structure develops this mind set as social issues with friends, family, and the self which leads one to essentially be suicidal for a type of because they can feel comfortable dying in. These concepts give fuel to an eternal loop of hatred and grief which only incites more idolization of gangs
Thrasher has analyzed these gangs in many ways to the extent or romantic life in gangs. He helped us distinguish the difference in stereotype gangs and then the actual facts involving them. Gang violence has took away families and happy homes. It has a negative effect on the United States and it should be banned from the U.S. Children is my big reason that I want gang violence to be stopped. Children are afraid to walk across the street because of gang violence.
The media has fed myself and others lies about what gangs truly are and what their purpose is. The overarching theme of gangs is that they are dangerous, full of thugs, blood-thirsty, and out to cause trouble. The truth is that they are more complicated than what society and the media has often made them out to be. There are multiple factors that go into making a gang what it is including why they form, the environment that their society and culture create for them, the structure and laws they enforce within the group, and the harsh reality of how difficult it is to leave. 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.
In his neighborhood there were crimes. His background about his family also urged him to commit crimes. The values, norms and his characters are all connected to his culture. In the end, yes, we should blame him for his crimes because it is unfair. The law is the law and everyone should face a consequence just because Hernando couldn’t understand the government norms does not mean he’s
The public education of society’s rules is conducted by the media in reporting on deviant behaviour and the consequences. In gang membership, the deviant behaviour of the gangs is broadcasted through the media and becomes a headline such as viral videos of the 2016 Moomba Brawl. The community becomes aware of the deviant behaviour. Unification of others: People with different opinions and beliefs are united by deviancy when they share the same common norms and values. In times of distress, society comes together to unite against the deviant behaviour.
Gang Violence Gang violence can be seen in a variety of settings with extreme violence typically as a rite of passage into a gang or retaliation (James & Gilliland, 2017). For example, in order for a potential gang member to enter a gang, they may have to partake in an initiation ceremony where they murder an individual. The effects of gang violence include community disorganization, homicide, and drug use. Gangs are typically formed in areas with weak social institutes and mechanisms for social control (Papachristos & Kirk, 2006). Gang members of social immobility, ethnic heterogeneity, and low socioeconomic status form social disorganization in the community (Papachristos & Kirk, 2006).
Gang Definition and Classification Classifying gangs is no simple task and to begin you must thoroughly understand the definition and requirements of being classified as a such. There are multiple definitions of a gang, according to The Modern Gang Reader but the one I will focus on is “A street gang is any durable street-oriented youth group whose involvement in illegal activity is part of its group identity.” Now that the definition has been identified it needs to be broken down further to clearly differentiate why this definition is essential. Durable means that the gang can exist for an extended amount of time and not wither away after there is conflict. Smaller collectives don’t have this luxury and can attempt to be a gang, but after
The third step, keep an eye on the gangs by doing call-ins. The call-ins are used to keep gang members from committing more crimes by going after the ones that they care about, parents, siblings, significant others, in order to help put the pressure to the gang members. Most of these young men had someone they cared for whom they did not want to disappoint or get embarrassed by them. These call-ins allowed the police to extend help to the gang members by offering jobs as well as any help they needed. The final step, and I think it 's the most crucial, in order to maintain the homicide numbers down, is to keep training law enforcement agencies periodically so that the goals of Project Ceasefire do not get lost.
If Crito helps him escape, he will earn a bad reputation as well. If his friends help him escape, they would be putting themselves in danger of being prosecuted and losing their money. His children would be known to have a father who's on the run because he broke the law and they would be left alone if he escapes to another city. They would be left alone even if he stays in jail and faces his execution, but it is better if they stay in Athens with people they know. If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners.
Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not. Thomas Hobbes felt that if there were no contract then people would just act on instinct- rape, pillage etc- human beings in their natural state are inclined to war and distrust. There is a reason why we have the prison system, so that criminals pay for their actions and to protect the people. He states he has a wife that is expecting and two kids on the way. If he is a good and harmless guy as he states he is then it would never cross his mind to being involved in an
