For some, gangs or crews need police repression, incarceration and punishment. Others think that police repression is not enough, and peace can only be achieved with more engagement with our neighbors, and by showing solidarity and love to our youth, giving them a better education and getting them involved in community work.
Gangs or crews can be necessary for young kids to survive in the city, when they have no family and their parents are absent in their lives. Can communities work with gangs or crews as long as crime is taken away from them?
What do you think?
