Because the cartels were focused on their shipping cocaine, the violence that they emitted was focused on the drug trade. Looking again at the issue of extradition, one can see how the acts of violence committed during this period were motivated by their involvement in the drug trade, allowing them to focus their violence. Los Extraditables carried out a campaign of assassinations—which included, judges, political figures, policemen, and many more—and bombings in order to prevent the possibility of extradition. These acts of violence were focused on stopping extradition and not necessarily to overthrow the current government or to push a political agenda. The cartels were able to employ sicarios and bombs to take out political figure that would work against them.
Sullivan isn’t the only character in The Departed who becomes a product of his environment. Billy Costigan, an undercover cop in Costello's gang quickly develops criminal behaviour. Costigan is meant to be on the right side of the law, he is supposed to be one of the good guys in society. However he proves that if we are subjected to constant interaction with a group of people whom portray the ideals and values of a criminal we will soon replicate their behaviour and develop a criminal attitude. Costigan reverts to violence as a means of getting information about Costello's gang and progressively becomes more violent as he is subjected to further interaction with Costello's gang.
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. People have a mind set that gangs are there for protection and it's really not. Gangs will leave you in two places grave or in jail. Learning about gangs is essential to understanding history and how to stay away.In order to talk about what a gang is and why you should stay away you should know what it is.A gang is a group of 3 or more individuals in a group (“What is a gang?”). Sometimes you might hear some people call a gang a set but it means all the same.
Many young teens who lack parental supervision or parents view gang involvement as a way of belonging. Once a person has joined the gang, they must follow a strict set of rules that cannot be broken. If these rules are broken, this can result in punishment or death (“Barrio Azteca,” 2018). John Burnett, a journalist, based in Texas, explains that Los Aztecas are now seeking to recruit younger boys who are already in trouble with the law (2009). Burnett goes on to explain that these young killers, called Sicaritos, who are usually 13-14 years old.
According to (2013), since the 1980s, gangs have become more turf-oriented and sophisticated in operating retail drug trade and distribution nationwide as a primary source income (p. 153). Some gangs are motorcycle gangs, street gangs, and racial or non-racial oriented. Of course, as gang’s network and their numbers increase so does the violence. In fact, gang membership is expanding to rural and suburban areas from the urban communities to distribute drugs, recruit members, and to hide out from law enforcement and other gangs (Alder, Laufer, & Mueller, 2013, p.139). Researchers believe the numbers are rising due individuals who are looking for a thrill, belonging, and protection.
Juveniles should be convicted as adults for violent crimes because they know what they are doing. They should of thought what they were doing before they did it.

A combination of extreme violence (assassinations of political officials, competitors, etc.) and the development of networks of underground tunnels led Guzman to become the top drug smuggler across the border. However, Guzman was eventually arrested in 1993, which forced him to manage the Sinaloa Cartel from a prison cell. In this manner, Guzman had to overcome a series of extreme obstacles to continue the management of the cartel with direct leadership of the organization in daily drug running operations. Guzman, however, utilized the monetary power of his organization to bribe jail guards and manipulate the prison system to his advantage.
Sotelo is in the gang, Latin Kings, and the juvenile is trying to get initiated. For the initiation, they planned to shoot someone of the rival gang, Satan’s Disciples. This act of shooting someone is honoring the Latin Kings gang. These boys are committing this act because it is what the gang members requested them to do. So in order for these boys to eventually go back out on the streets and commit more crimes, they must justify their actions.
Juvenile Justice is the primary system used to handle youth who, in fact, is convicted of criminal offenses. These crimes juveniles commit each and every day are they innocuous or dangerous towards our society? Either way they are tried as adults. I´m stating the fact that when juveniles commit crime they should be treated differently from any other adult criminal. 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.
This makes it difficult for police to track serial killers and link them to the crimes. Thus, this often leads to higher crime rates among serial killers and places them in a different category. Thus, the nature vs. nurture argument continues to remain prevalent in the discussion regarding serial killers. Some scientists contend that humans are naturally violent and aggressive. Thus, some humans are born with certain genetic traits that make them psychologically unstable and impulsive.

General deterrence and Specific deterrence at first glance seems like it runs hand and hand. As you look closer and understand it better, you come to the realization that they are two different topics. General deterrence is focused on the legal punishment if you are caught committing a crime. Specific deterrence focuses on punishment of criminals that are apprehended. So many question still remain on how effective both deterrence really are.
