oh ok lol well my apologies :)
A gang is simply a group of people, sort of like Scooby doo and the mystery machine. However, when gangs are brought up as simply "gangs" and not "gang of" or "the (insert not criminal title) gang" then they are not bad. Some criminal gangs have come from neighborhood watch programs. However in this case the group must be distinguished by their organized illegal activities, therefore "gangs" cannot make an illegal activity better. Any normal citizen has the right to organize, and organizing multiple people to do a task makes the task simpler. Therefore, it would be better to say "Organized crime makes crime easier to commit", as there is reason to understand there is a difference between breaking the law and doing something bad. At one time, drinking alcohol was illegal, but nowadays that isn't considered bad.
Thanks for the reply Reece. I was not really being serious. I know the definition of a gang( there are more than one). My comment was in reponse to AngryBlogger's comment.
I can't believe the argument is just whether or not gangs are bad. Gangs are bad. That's pretty much a fact. Through representation in media and news and life. I feel like this is like another argument in here where there wasn't really one at all. As someone commented: it's like saying fire is hot.
"readytobegin there are tons of people who thinks gangs are bad. we are talking real strictly gangs here. 90% of them are bad. The only gangs that somewhat seem decent are biker hangs but even most of them are terrible." -----
If we dispute one of the defintions of gang and focus on only the group aspect or name placement we may have an argument. By definition (one of) not all gangs are bad. They are just groups of people.
I am confused on "we are talking real strictly gangs here".
?? ...A gang is an organized group of criminals..that's the definition of a gang..the argument is whether or not you agree with gangs being bad ReadyToBegin..I'm not a teacher if you don't understand the argument please don't put your input in it thank you
So the definition of a gang? Is that the argument?
Gangs are bad because majority of them promote violence
readytobegin there are tons of people who thinks gangs are bad. we are talking real strictly gangs here. 90% of them are bad. The only gangs that somewhat seem decent are biker hangs but even most of them are terrible.
The only example of a gang that I know of that is not bad is the Gulabi Gang, but they are more activists than a true gang.
Who would think other wise?
