If you have the chance to meet some of this kids that get in trouble, you would understand that many of them are rejected in the schools since they were in preschool, their parents are sometimes ignorant of the situations. Other parents have their own problems and are not able to guide and protect their children. Usually this children look for people that protect them specially when they reach their puberty. Many times they experience depression and anxiety, and they find in their new friends a place where they can belong. Unfortunately the drug problem would just contribute to numb their feelings and loose their empathy for others. Then if they were neglected and rejected when they were young,the society that surrounds them will pay for it. But if you understand the situation and show respect for their lives, chances are that they will respect you too. It is not right what they do, and they know that, but we can offer ways to bring them back where they feel worth it.

Hold up! Hold up!
No this is not a hold up. but we all need to be careful not to be caught up in a heated moment:
was he convicted by the word of a criminal who had something to gain by lying?
John Thompson spent 18 years in prison — 14 years of that on death row — for crimes he did not commit. Facing his seventh execution date, a private investigator discovered that scientific evidence of his innocence had been knowingly concealed by the New Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office. Think about that for a moment: While a man’s life hung in the balance, an agency meant to pursue only justice withheld evidence it knew could prove his innocence

Look, I am also a white guy from Montecito. I had enough of my parents not talking to me so, I went to SB one day and I saw people that looked like they were family. Next thing I know I am jumped in. It's funny how whites always say that if Mexicans didn't cross the border there wouldn't be a gang problem. HELLO? White supremist gang... How about the KKK that's probobly one of the oldest gAngs out there and mostly all of them were white. Come on guys show a little respect for us, try living one day like us you'd probobly get shanked right away.
It's apparent that this person has no life, along with the rest of the younger youth in this town, their either addicted too two things meth or heroin. Sad, sad, sad. but in this young mans case he just so happens too be involved in a gang.. which is extremely mind boggling as too why you'd even want too be apart of something that's a down right disgrace too society. I'm glad i moved back too the east coast, cause it's a serious shame too see such a beautiful town go too waste because of the amount of ignorant gang activity.
