This is going to sound stupid but I'm going to say it just the same. Maybe it is time we teach our young ones there will be times in life when they are so mad at other people they want to bring serious harm to them but they need to remember one important truth. They can always say they are sorry for betting someone up but it is real hard to apologize to a person or their family after you killed them! That is permanent and sticks with a person, in the dreams of the one who survived.
These gangs can't see they are creating the environment they will one day raise their children in and watch them live by the rules they create. Create the world you want to live in.
