Because they have no value or human life. Gang turf is more important to them. It's all about greed and drugs. These guys show no remorse, when they kill a child.

Gang members are murdering criminals. Criminals prey on the innocent.

I desperately need any Community, Org., Media to help me to speak out the truth. I worked for a non-profit organization in Riverside county. I found out and reported fraud, mishandled public fund, illegal activities, and hiring illegal immigrants for years to the company. I got retaliations, discrimination, harassment, and finally terminated. I reported to Governorís, other government agencies, and I filed complaints with EEOC, DFEH and Labor Boards in Santa Ana. They all played politics in my case. The governorís office did not do anything and DFEH dismissed my case and recently Deputy Labor Commissioner called me on the phone to dismiss my case as well.

What is an OG anymore. Gangters gon't live long anymore to be considered OG. The only OGs I see are those that are in prison and have been there awhile. They are for the most part broken down and useless. The new inmates don't even have respect for them. If you are not saying that in sarcasm, you have two places you will end up and soon. Prison or the grave.

They are to busy trunking big shanks up thier a** for some stupid shot caller. Now what real man would stick something up his a** just because another guy told him to. Have you ever seen how easily they fold in an interogation room. They always blame clowny for pulling the trigger. That's how tight they are.

Actually it was sarcasm. I was just making a point that there are no OGs anymore they are either in prison or dead. I mean you can't be a teenager and be considered an OG. So many end up dead or in prison at such young ages that the term OG will soon be forgotten.

You are so right. Even in prison, they do nothing but follow orders. They get sent to the hole, and the shot caller (OG), still gets to walk around like his shit don't stink.

You want to know something that is sadder. When they go to visiting they take thier kids. Sometimes the kids are dressed with baggy pants and long shirts just like little gangbangers. The women who take the kids know that the child will end up in prison or dead yet they still want them to growup to be just like dad.

Why do murdering gang bangers wear crucifixes?
Do they think they will be forgiven?

Not only that but many get the virgin Mary tattooed on thier backs. I just don't get it. I think they are just arogant enough to think that all the killing is justified.
