    Joining gangs will do you no good no matter how you look at it in any point. Yes, you may find the sense of having a family with them but it is temporary and time will come that you will be getting in trouble with them.

    People who come from broken homes that are abusive or just negative environments look to gangs for brotherhood and that feeling of family.
    Some people do it because they live in a rough area and want to feel protected.
    Some do it because they want to increase their stronghold on drug trafficking and illegal activity within certain communities. In other words its like a social group just as a book club or any group of people joining together.

      In my own experience I joined a gang just for the fun of it because you would hang out with your friends doing things you all enjoy.

    We might revisit Gangs as a topic before the end of this year. Feel free to start a thread if you have your own experiences, thoughts, and comments on the subject. We will incorporate any comments made here into the discussion when we revisit the topic. And thanks for watching.
