They are people to boost their pathetic egos; to posture and try to prove to the world that they are tough just because they can hold a gun and pull the trigger instead of working hard and facing responsibility. They are weak minded....so desperate for acceptance that they pledge allegiance to their "homies" that would just as soon turn on them and slit their throat in a heartbeat for a twenty dollar bag of crack.
They make the world a worse place for everyone because of their selfish desires. The only benefit to being in a gang is that they kill themselves off. I just wish they would expedite the process. Someone should take an M-60 to a gang meeting and mow the weeds down.
