there are gangs in jonesboro and they are constantly trying to recruit members that are as young as elementary school age. some young students in schools are "flagged" as potential gang members because of their association with older gang members. jonesboro is a nice place and i love it here, but the parents of this town need to wake up. many have no idea what their children are up to and who they are hanging out with.

Put your kids into a school that is mostly white. You will be able to avoid the gang problem taking this route. I would not personally be to worried about the gangs here. They are a bunch of scared little boys and girls and feel safe in a crowd of other fuck-ups. They are kind of like spiders. The ones that sneek up on you will get ya but if you see one coming just step on it.

AMEN!!!It starts at home, the law can just do so much. The chief has helped alot, but every day there are more wanna be baggy pants gang members.I have lived here for years but don't really feel safe getting out anymore. The paper and K8 won't tell much like the Memphis or Little Rock news does because they are afraid of stepping on toes or visitors won't come to THEIR city! New Orleans brought us alot of problems and gangs from Memphis, LR, and up North. I think gangs are here to stay, and just about everywhere. I wish someone would come up with a answer. Parents should check on their kids!!!
Amen

A litte racist are we????
Blacks aren't the only ones that are gang members.. I was going to post a thread about this same thing so that I can find out more information. My newphew is a WHITE boy and just got his a$$ whooped into a gang... Sad to say but he has now alienated the family. My children will not be allowed to spend the night with their grandparents due to the fact that they let him move back into their house.. They sleep behind locked bedrooms doors for fear he might do something to them while they are sleeping.
What are the gangs in town.. I noticed when I saw him the other day he had "SNO" tattooed on the left side of his neck.. He is always wearing a blue bandana in his back pocket..
And yes his is one of those stupid looking people who were there pants 10x too big so that their jeans sag below their butt and when they walk they have to hold their pants up..

It's not racist, it's just the honest truth. White people don't move into a neighborhood and totally destroy it. The schools that have allowed all the blacks to attend are no longer fit for anyone to send their children to. It's a shame all the nice parts of Jonesboro have been destroyed because the blacks have moved in.

The majority of gang members are black.You cant blame anyone for wanting to protect thier children from gang violence. A preventative measure would be to look for a predominately white school.You totally took the whole white school comment wrong.

Hey, I wouldn't worry about them gangs in Jonesboro either, right? They're not a big deal here. Well, until they start shooting at each other, sometimes injuring or killing the one they aimed at, sometimes injuring or killing the one well away from the one they are aiming at.

Nah, it's no biggie! Them nurses and doctors at St. B's just really ENJOY attempting to save a young man or woman's life, when they know from the minute that that husk rolls through the door there is not going to be any hope whatsoever of saving a poor life. But, we will work diligently to save that life that should have been walking the street at that very moment. Because that's what we do.

But the gangs in Jonesboro, they are not really a big deal.

You are exactly right. It does all start at home. When a child is flagged at my school, we have usually had contact with the parents and possible gang related activities have come up in the conversation. Most of the time, parents deny what is going on. And, most of the time, the parents aren't doing anything to raise their kids to be nongang members. Because of this, their little gang wanna be's end up being full fledge members. You may think that you can insulate your kids by enrolling them in an all white school here in town, or by homeschooling, but you are wrong. Your kids are coming into contact with them at the skating ring, bowling alley, movies, mall, WalMart, Chuck E. Cheese, and every resturant in town.

I lived in Phoenix, AZ for over 25 years and I can tell you the gang problem here is just starting...
I caught 3 young men (and I won't mention the color because that's not the issue here) behind a local business "tagging" the walls and fence, when I confronted them they told me to "move along old man" but when I kept coming and pulled out a can of paint and covered their "gang tag" with a big "X" they got pi$$ed and started yelling, but left the scene.
The key here is stand up for your neighborhoods, let them know you'll fight for what's yours, and trust me, they are like little rats when the lights come on.... They run and hide, they don't want real confrontation especially from adults.
Remember, fight for what is your's and they move on!
And just a PS, I got with the business owner the next day and helped him repaint his wall and fence and they have not been back!

Im smart enough to live in a place in town that I will not have to worry about a gang member shooting me on accident. Its simple, stay away from dogs and you wont get fleas. And for the comment about them shooting each other. I think that is great. In fact we ought to give them handguns and make it much easier for them. One thug dead, another in prison for the rest of his life. Its actully an awesome idea. And no, they are not a big deal. Stay away live another day. I have no concerns what so ever that my family would fall victim to some punk that cant shoot. Hey thats another good Idea. Lets give all gang members shooting lessons and free guns and ammo. Its called thinning the heard!! Awesome!!!!! The part that does suck is that when these low life fux go to the E.R. the Doctors have to give them more attention than they deserve. Taking away attention from hard working people who honestly need help.

Well you are very lucky! It is a wonder their little baggy pant arses did't beat you. That wasn't very smart. Call the cops!

Fear is what they thrive on. Remember, they are still kids at heart. besides, what makes you think I wasn't armed?

The cops will do nothing until there is a crime, remember what I said, take control of your own and others will leave you alone.
