Just fine here. Hah! Angel is sporting his nifty face tat on the left cheek & Nando appears to have scored a neck hickey for their mug shots. I'm sure their mothers are proud.

WHY, if they KNOW who is a gangmember, are the gangmembers allow in Taxpayer funded section 8 housing, when there are hard working families who play by the rules waiting for housing...?
WHY are they receiving Food Debt cards from the State...
ALL taxpayer subsidized programs except work-programs or JAIL should be eliminated from 'bangers lives.

First off, it’s not illegal to BE a gang member, just to participate in any of their illegal activity, and there are plenty that are trying to remain out of trouble. And I hate to say it but considering that this is a subculture replete with entire nuclear family structures, the moms are likely married to gang members. It’s just a world we don’t understand but these ethnocentric comments are certainly not helpful.

Correction, Pebble. To get jumped into a gang you must commit illegal acts of increasing severity: graffiti, vandalism, extortion, protection rackets, shop-lifting, drugs, fights, knifings and other acts of grave physical violence. That is the gang culture. Those are the values. So yes, it is illegal to be a gang member because illegal acts are required. to join.. Get over splitting semantic hairs belonging to a gang is "not illegal"; but illegal cats are mandatory for gang membership. . This is not a "nuclear" family structure - it is a nuclear toxic waste dump and these gangs do not belong anywhere in this country.. Anyone looking for a "nuclear gamily" substitute need look no further than the Boys and Girls Clubs or any other numbers of legitimate youth organizations that are positive and supported generously by our local community.

Actually it is:
The California Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention (STEP) Act eradicates criminal gang conduct by focusing upon patterns of criminal gang activity and the organized nature of street gangs. Penal Code §186.22 provides that:

Participation in a criminal street gang with knowledge that its members engage in criminal activity is punishable as either a misdemeanor or felony.

Conviction for a crime or public offense which was committed to promote or assist in criminal conduct by gang members is punished by an additional term in county jail or state prison.

A building or place used by gang members for the purpose of the commission of specified offenses will be considered nuisance, which shall be enjoined, abated and prevented, and for which damages may be recovered, whether it is in a public or a private place.

PEBBLE There is no such thing as a non participating gang member. You’re either in the gang or not. To state it’s a family thing and we don’t understand is right. We don’t understand how killing, robbing,threatening or vandalizing is acceptable behavior in any society. I don’t care if moms married to a gang member, that’s her problem. But when violence spreads out into the community that’s all of our problem. We need gang injunctions period. Break up the cycle.

They have such 'dead' eyes. Maybe it's the picture-taking process or being arrested, but they look as if they're no "soul" there.

Their eyes appear that way because they got caught! It's the old deer in the headlights syndrome. This won't be the last time they see that type of photography setup either.

Those are sullen and defiant eyes. Comes with the gang member package. Getting caught and prison terms get you street creds. And new jail house connections.
