In the 1990s, gang violence was on the rise, where it was dominantly founded in youths. Anderson, Dyson, and Lee (1996) argued that when a group of African American youths join together and commits delinquent acts and crime, they already categorized as gangs to the American public. This affect and many other affects is what creates an increase in gang violence. Those other factors are socioeconomic status, history, race, gendered, and geographic background. They play a huge role on the creation and formation of gangs.
Racism is a big challenge they face but not only in this specific gang also in, every other gangs such as tango blast , Texas syndicate , Los Pistoleros , and many more. The Hispanic gang culture in general like to be mainly one race and keep it like that, they do have problems with African American gangs and white culture gangs. They will verbally tell a different race gang member off to show what race/Gang is dominant and if they have to beat the person physically they will to show the power to the opposite race person and the rest of the gangs in that same prison. One of many challenges they also face is being a dominate gang , and showing “What colors” (gang) is the most powerful dominate gang on the prison so they won’t be messed with and can have power to do anything in their
Deviance Research Report - Gang Membership Youth gangs are groups of three or more individuals aged between 12-24 years whose members collectively identify themselves by adopting a group identity, which they use to create fear and intimidation within society.

From the scenes, we don't see he would probably be off upping his kills per day always getting away with it. This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer. He isn't just any ordinary serial killer though he is the best at his job killing 1 person every 0.8 days.
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. However the nature and characteristics of gangs differ from community to community. Gangs however are found to be more prevalent in high crime areas and are also responsible for the majority of crimes committed. However to understand the function of gangs within the community we have to delve once more into the definition which is characterized as an identifiable group of people who: are generally perceived as a distinct aggregation by others recognize themselves as an street identifiable group (almost invariably with a group name) have been involved in a sufficient number of delinquent incidents to call forth a consistent negative response from neighborhood residents and/or law enforcement agencies.
People are raised into this gang violence, even children are receiving guns from the ages ten to thirteen. Members of these gangs join for protection, acceptance, and a family. It was known that if you were a man, you had to either fight or kill, “young black men were pretending to be men by killing each other” (Raised into Wrongfulness). People see this only as a crime and a gang problem, when it also generates from the poor education and the lack of work society is giving these gang members. It’s very important that equal opportunities
He arranged for several guns to be packed in a box of thread, and smuggled into the shirt factory. The prison break was set for September 27, 1933.Having some time on his hands, Dillinger decided to visit lady friend Mary Longnaker in Dayton, Ohio, whom he had met earlier that year. Unfortunately, the police had been stalking him through much of this time as he gathered the funds for the prison break. After receiving a tip from his landlady, they stormed into Mary’s room and arrested Dillinger. He was on his way back to prison.
Music, like most forms of art, often shares subjective views with its listeners. An individual favourite song may be the next person's most hated song. Although different factors come into play when determining if music is good or not, there is no concrete definition of ‘good music’. Society continues to label certain songs originating from genres such as hip-hop, blaming the music for violent acts committed within society. In 1994, a 17-year-old shot a cop in Milwaukee, telling police that he was inspired by a Tupac Shakur song to kill the officer (Thurtle, 10 Attempts To Blame Murder On Music).
Al Pacino, the Godfather himself, has been seen and caught making underhanded deals with gangs today as he did in his younger days, we see that it is not uncommon for teenagers to join gangs as if they've been lead astray on another path that is dark. Teenage gang activity has been the cause of many petty crimes and the distribution of starter and "gateway" drugs to the general public, there are many incidents of juvenile delinquencies throughout many communities around the world, and most, if not all of the teenagers were either mildly educated, came from broken homes, or were not very well to do and were under the influence. "It has been proven that the U.S has the highest rate of teen drug use in the industrialized world. Some studies show

The Latino/Hispanic Ethnic Group In 1973, the census for the Latino/Hispanic ethnic group was made official (U.S. Census Bureau, 2014). However, the United States Census Bureau (2014) goes over in their ‘Hispanic Heritage Month’ article, that the census led to controversy since "the term Hispanic [...] can be of any race” (United States Census Bureau, 2014). The Culture of the Latino/Hispanic Ethnic Group “Hispanic Americans and Latino Americans make up more than 17% of the US population with over 53 million Hispanics and Latinos living in the US” (Yafai, 2015).
Latino people often have high arrest rates. This is an issue because Latinos account for an excessive amount of all felony and misdemeanor arrests. To explain, Latinos are much more likely than White Americans to get arrested. Latinos account for almost half (46 percent) of all documented gang members in the United States. The issue here is that despite the high numbers of documented Latino gang members, only 3 percent of young Latinos aged sixteen to twenty-five report that they are now or have ever been in a gang.
Introduction In this paper I will be discussing the means of comparing and contrasting two prominent groups located here in America. These two groups are known as the Bloods and Crips. In result of the gang violence and the continuation of the initiations across the country has led to a vast uprise in crime and homicide since the start of the groups. I will begin this paper by explaining what a “gang” is and its effects on the demographics of its community and the effect it has on society along with the violence that can be caused by the two gangs.
Gang violence is an increasing problem in Urban Minority Communities. Young people are dropping out of schools in record numbers, and higher percentages of the population are withdrawing from the labor force. The more people that drop out can turn their heads to joining a gang. Those that don’t find work can find themselves joining a gang and doing crime to fill their time. The number of young people joining gangs are increasing and more crime will happen as a result.
