Gang Membership and YOU!

Why Do Kids Join Gangs?
Crimes Gangs May Commit

Possible consequences of joining a gang are:
  • Identification as a member of a certain gang by rival gang members (may lead to violent meetings).
  • Constant conflict with rival gangs.
  • Increased chance of being  arrested when hanging out with fellow gang members.
  • Increased chance of injury/death when hanging out with "targeted" gang members.
  • Drug/alcohol abuse (and possible arrest)
  • Intimidation/victimization of family members due to gang membership.

Bottom line: If you're not worried about your own well-being, at least care enough about your family's to not join a gang!
