    • I disagree with you that your title seems unnecessary.

    • Hi there Darriven,

      I really enjoyed reading this! Gang violence has been a continuing issue among communities for years now and seems to never stop and just keeps growing. I agree with what you mentioned about enforcing programs to the youth in order to prevent them from joining a gang. It should be a goal to help these young people find other ways of dealing with their life problems or goals instead of joining a gang. I also agree with the fact that parents have a lot to do with gang temptation. Without parental guidance or support, children tend to do things in a way that should not be done, such as joining a gang.
