Topic: gang violence
Imagine gang wars starting in our country and our whole society collapsing.
This is significant because when youths join gangs, they get exposed to drugs, sex, guns, and violence. When youths join gangs, they join because they need protection or because of a family member is in one. This shows that youths joining gangs can get exposed to gang related events that they weren’t prepared for.
In my opinion, youths who join gangs get exposed to gang related events because they get influenced by the actions of the gangs. Parents fear when their children join gangs because they are sometimes pressured by peers to join one, for protection, need to make money, or a friend or family member is in one.
Secondly, when parents see their children join a gang, they see them carry a gun because of protection. Youths are also exposed to drugs and sex because of peer pressured by gang members or friends who are in gangs. Youths are also exposed to violence and gang wars because of gang related issue’s or a gang related event. I interviewed martin sanchez, who explains that youths who join gangs get exposed to gang related issues that don’t get them an education or a diploma for them to graduate.
In conclusion, youths don’t have to join gangs because of peer pressured or cause of protection. Get an education and be successful in life and don’t join gangs because it will be the biggest mistake you will ever make.
