I have been thinking about writing about gang culture for some time and I wanted some feedback.
In the UK usually what happens. The parents give a half decent upbring to the children but when the child goes school from around the age of 11 till the age of 19 or so there are bullies in school. So the child believes he needs to be bad to survive. So due to this he joins a gang, carry weapons etc. Now what will happen is that he might get beaten up one day or mugged by some people and he retaliates etc and this cycle continues. It usually starts off with fists, then with knives and maybe guns...sometimes it starts with a gun too. The point is how does one tackle this? There is a massive problem in the UK with regards to such issues and later on these gangs engage in criminal activities like drug dealing etc.
