Gang violence is a growing problem in this world. No parent would like to imagine their kids dealing with weapons or being threatened by them. These violence’s affects each child individually and their families as well. These gangs recruit multiple different individuals for many reasons such as bribery, family traditions, or even threatening. Although, many kids feel like they have to be a part of it but there are many resources out in this world to prevent them from believing so.
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
The way the greasers are outsiders in society is that they are always there for their gang members. “Dally hated to do things the legal way” (2). This quote shows the audience that the greaser Dally (the tough one) does illegal things to get through life, which then influences the rest of
This syndrome is more fundamental than the popular assertion that officers’ racial animus is the main problem.” (477). Because high crime areas have such a strong dislike and mistrust for the police, answering some calls become dangerous for the responding officers. While answering these calls officers become more alert and anxious. Most of the time when an officer makes an arrest or discharges his/her weapon it has nothing to do with race but it has everything to do with the crime.
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.
Fining homeless does not have a positive effect on the community and often homeless end up in jail because of it. If you are homeless it is most likely because you couldn’t afford necessities like food or shelter. By allowing fines to be put on homeless you are setting them up for failure. Also if homeless get sent to jail because of a fine they know have criminal records.
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.
By breaking the law his soul would be ruined and a ruined soul is not worth living with. This goes back to when he said that the really important thing is not to live but to live well. Also, when he dies he would enter Hades as an outlaw and will not be well welcomed. Therefore, he believes that he should stay and face his execution because it is better to die than to live with a ruined soul. Socrates uses all of these points to support his main argument which is that escaping jail would be morally incorrect.
As a result, both crimes have their own victims and the effects of these crimes can be very catastrophic to the community. Both street crime and white-collar crime have major consequences. They both can inflict bodily harm and financial harm upon people causing great harm to the victim, victim’s family, or
It hate back and forth from the people to the police, once police brutality happens people get angry and try to fight back with negative actions such as trying to beat up policeman or trying to kill them. This major issue can be resolved when officers face
The Police vs. the Community Police brutality is a big issue that is affecting our society in many ways and no matter what state you live in you will either face it yourself or know someone who is facing this situation and either wants help or revenge. There are many reasons the police would treat people anyway but I see the main reasons as there is no agency to police the police, the police often use the alibi “I felt threatened”, and racism. Through the eyes of a young black male I see these things happening every day.
Gang violence, it is tearing apart families as well as entire cities. Gang violence has affected a plethora of people as well as whole cities. Some people may even be afraid to leave their home in fear of being attacked or robbed. Police forces are trying to prevent it to the best of their ability, but there are many other solutions as to handling this issue. Recently there was a movie that depicted the issue of gang violence and their response was quarantining certain parts of the city.
Instead the police often challenge black people for walking or driving. This leaves the communities frightened of police rather than feeling supported. In society today, the fear and violence in which the author lived when growing up in Baltimore still continue on. The growing media coverage of police brutality and racial injustice in the United States can be described as “An Event”. Because of all these issues taking place, many in society are becoming psychologically impacted never forgetting the events they have experienced.
