Great info for parents

Incidently, gangs are international groups all connected by guns, drugs, violence.

There are definitely professional gang mambers who may be doctors, lawyers, accountants, business owners, etc.
They dress professionally and act professionally but assist in the gang world also.

Remember this is a 3rd or 4th generaton problem - some went to college/med school, etc.

Sometimes gang leaders and their kidsa will recruit in schools for more membership. Each adult leader needs his/her kids to form their own gang to perpetuate the system.

They give pot/alcohol/sex to the kids, get them hooked so they will do whatever it takes to join and do their bidding...whatever the leader wants.

Some girls are even told they must have sex with all of the male gang members, even the ones with HIV and AIDS. The girls do it unprotected to prove their loyalty. Nice groups!

If they ever want out, they might be beaten to death or otherwise killed (shot, stabbed, hit by car).

Grandmothers and grandfathers also often were the leaders of the gangs years ago and teach their kids and grandkids how to be a good member. they want the grandkids to sell for them and bring home the money!!!!!!!
