It all starts the day you make a friend you build a trust with them and you hope they never break it. If it is one thing that should be thought by all gangs is that there is no honor among thieves. For such a reason I give you this short story.
Imagine being at a park in an urban environment, a young boy about the age of 15 at the basketball court by him self, approached by four young men with bandanas all over there clothes or what was left of it. These aren’t no saint basket ball players these guys play for keeps. Watching four gangsters walking toward you is very intimidating at that age. The basket ball drops with no more bounce, the young boy heart begins to beat rapidly, to scared to run. One of the gangsters picks up the ball and hands is back to the young boy, and says it not safe to be around here at night. The boy still in shock makes a utter less response, the gangster see opportunity to recruit, so he lures the boy into a life of crime with the possibility of never reaching age 18 alive.
1. Gangs are organized, functioning under a designated hierarchy, which may resemble the internal structure of a corporation.
2. Not all gangs have a definitive leader. They are sometimes ruled by a council of leaders representing each faction.
3. A faction will have a separate leader and group of officers. They may use the same name, an altered name, or adopt an entirely new name.
