As show in the film CRIPs and bloods, this was a cry out for help. The members of the community felt as if they were being abused by the mistreatment of the law inforcement. This is what finnaly sparked the first real gang. These were gentlemen that made a bond to have each others backs to protect one another an family. Many riots broke out from police officers rasist acts ,car stopping and on going harrasment. As O.G chaz williams said "you can push a person so far but you have to realise they will push back ". there has been times were i have felt as if i was a statistic waitin to happen . The state used a billion of tax payers money to build 40, 000 new jail beds to house criminals

I remember 1 time i had to decide weather to use condoms or not.
it was a normal day after school as i took one of my home girls on a tour of my home. i knew what i wanted from her but u had to make it look like we were just at my house to look around and relax a little bit. few minutes went by as the mood lightened up i made my move like a tiger the jungle. this is when it finally hit me to put t he condom on or rush right in like a quarter back and get to touch her down (metaphor).
In down these mean streets by piri Thomas . we see piri decide to walk into fight.
this could have been avoided many different ways he could have simply changed directions . cross the street etc. piri took it upon himself to never be picked on again. he faced his fear and fought the leader and won. piri was looked at as the leader from then on.
According to Lawrence kolbergs theory of moral development, i would place my decision to use the condom at stage number 1 i say that because i would place piri's decision at stage 3 which was a peer pressure situation.
In conclusion it only takes one second to make a wrong life long decision . you must choose wisely and make judgements of you first instinct." Don't make you first decision your worst decision which may cause your last decision made". Take life one day at a time and think about your decision making morality.

Lawrence Kohlberg (October 25, 1927 – January 19, 1987) was an American psychologist born in Bronxville, New York, who served as a professor at the University of Chicago, as well as Harvard University. Having specialized in research on moral education and reasoning, he is best known for his theory of stages of moral development
- Stages 1. Obedience and Punishment (How can I avoid punishment?)2. Self-Interest (What's in it for me? You do for me, I’ll do for you. You do that to me, I’ll do that to you)3. Interpersonal Accord and Conformity (Conforming to the will of the group. Peer Pressure)4. Authority and social-order maintaining orientation (Law and order morality. You do something or don’t do something because the law/rule/religious text says so)5. Social Contract (Laws are regarded as social contracts rather than rigid dictums/rules)6. Universal Ethical Principles/The Golden Rule (Principled conscience/commitment to justice, equality and respect…think Jesus, Dr. King, Ghandi)

How would i handle it.
Me being the hard working person that i am i would have stop to think . my thoughts would have been to relocate to a different spot with higher income clients. I would have maybe worked in the city maybe left my nighborhood. the saying goes sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get were you have to go. this meaning for you to reach the top you may have to do things out the ordinary. its about your sruggle and your determination to reach there

There are many young minds that are paying attention to the streets they see around them . If more people change there actions on the streets future minds will be shaped on the good of the streets. The negative outlook has to change to better our selves and the streets we SHARE.

Gang members are not to be the blame for the satanic crimes committed. leaders hold the most power and send out acts that's need to be performed. Scared members perform these acts because they are mostly frightened by the pass members that did not perform as tasked. gangs have many different positions that have to be filled for the gang to run correctly. there are members that help in the production of making drugs, members that are the drug runners ( move drugs in the neighborhood) , then you have the enforcers who cause havoc homicides and assaults and the O G ( original gangster) . the O G has the job of being the man that every1 comes to . He is most likely to be the wildest person in the group and most the times the 1 that's in jail .
how do the O G's run a gang from jail ?????
They send out messages called " kites " . this informs the members of there status,( the role they play in the gang) hits to be put out, (people he wants killed on the outside) and mostly money options( how the gang makes ) . These kites have codes planted through the whole letter of movements the gangs must make no if ands or but . for ex : worK Is heLL . tHis Is Mayham . AS you can see the letter looks like the person is talkin about hardship in the jail , when he is really sending a hit that says Kill him .
