It’s a very basic problem of teaching and then enforcing a right or wrong mentality in the children in those areas. If they don’t understand that selling drugs is wrong then there is nothing to keep them from the temptation. It all falls back on the total failure of the parents to be good and effective parents.
It’s like a bad bear who raids camps and cabins for food and takes her cub with her. The cub learns that this is acceptable behavior and will continue this activity right up until the time somebody gets tired of losing their hard earned dollars. Then they shoot the bear.
The moral of this story is that if you raise, or fail to raise, you child in such a way that it becomes an out of control animal don’t bitch when others shoot it. A gang of kids is nothing more than a pack of human wolves. If you really intend to eliminate them from a certain area the only real cure is to keep shooting until the are all dead or they leave the area. It is not possible to reason with a pack mentality.
Every kid in those gangs is either trained to be that way or allowed to be that way by the adults around them in their homes.
Agree with you.
I actually wish that gangbangers would watch a little more Animal Planet or National Geographic TV. Their whole way of being is so very primitive mammalian. I should think even they would be pretty embarrassed to find that eye contact = dissing is NOT original for their humanoid selves. And that other animals can mark their territories with even more sophistication than their aerosol scrawlings.
