Others are in for revenge and keep that on their mind to kill people and sell drugs. Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.

On the other hand, if "it's" pertains to the street, or in general Harlem, then those on the street want the least amount of exposure to the harshness that it instills in the people living there. The author feels that the street makes people violent; for example, the character Jones is shown to have turned violent after he works in cellars of buildings without human contact. Petry continues to reference “it” throughout this scene, mentioning that “it did everything it could do to discourage the people walking along the street” (2). The wind is now pushing people back, and hindering them from moving forward, or symbolically from moving up in life and gaining a better class or higher wage. Petry feels that someone, particularly white people and those in the middle class, are preventing lower class, which is majority black people, from moving up and escaping poverty.
The two juvenile delinquents were also the ones censurable for the homicide of Luis Cruz, using the weapon identified by Paul Fisher, Erik’s younger brother, to be a blackjack. Additionally, Erik and his previous myrmidon, a miscreant by the name of Vincent Castor, are proscribed for visually impairing Paul Fisher at a young age. According to the novel, Luis Cruz was, “killed by Arthur Bauer, on orders from Erik.” Undoubtedly, Erik is outlined as a mischievous troublemaker. Furthermore, it is also axiomatic that Erik has a rather violent temperament. For instance, he attempts to injure Paul Fisher on a multitude of occasions.
I am violence.” Still unsatisfied, the interviewer moves on to another young gang member: “What do you think of violence?” He answers flatly: “Es prity” (it’s pretty). Whether a playful refusal or an active embodiment of violent discourse, the affirmation that violence “es prity” unmasks the aesthetic bling and spectacle of violence that the ghetto film genre exploits. The sequence flies in the face of formulaic narratives like “The World’s Most Dangerous Gang,” in which remorseful gang members confess their sins and beg forgiveness for their transgressions. In this exchange and throughout the film, viewers receive no definitive explanations of urban violence. Something about the “real” always defies

One being the man named Ji Seong-ho, changed the meaning of his life when he made it to The States. Another example of this is when two teenaged girls who were best friends were murdered in Detroit by gang members, the parents of these girls had to alter the meaning of their lives due to this horrendous life experience.

Unlike structured functionalism and social conflict, one of symbolic interactionalism’s limitations is that it focuses too much on the micro picture and not the macro. It also does not pay attention to power
The findings showed that society constructs a criminal justice system that scares future criminals off by making an example of those who commit it.” What this means is that capital punishment will marginalize murders. It pushes them to the edge of society so that they cannot commit crime again. Accordingly, it will eradicate and terminate the future threats of dangerous offenders who are inclined to bring to community while behind bar or after parole (Shepherd). A second disputation of those who advocate capital punishment is that it is “just and moral”. One of those who believe this is Casey Carmical, who is professional translator and blog writer of website called “Casey 's Critical Thinking” pertaining to current social and political issues.

Some might say that in neighborhoods plagued by drugs and violence, the police have little choice but to arrest large numbers of young men and zealously run down outstanding warrants, particularly when those on the run may carry guns, become involved in serious violence, and/or deal drugs in the neighborhood. But around 6th street the street trade in drugs, neighborhood rivalries, and their potential for violence are all deeply woven into community life (201).
