Welcome to my site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
survey of America's largest city police departments showed that ninety-five percent of reported significant criminal activity
was by youth gangs or gang-like groups of young people (“Gang Statistics”).
When teens become involved in gangs, committing a crime is a must. The
more teens get involved in gangs, the more the amount of crimes committed increases.
What exactly does a gang have to offer? For some it is the family they
never had. Gangs" consist of different types of members including core and leaders, associates or regulars, peripheral or
fringe, and "wannabees" or recruits (“Gang Statistics”). A child feels like they have no one to confide in, no
love and support, they begin to have a negative behavior, and it seems like nothing can be done. Adolescents join gangs get the attention that they are missing at home.
