A few weeks ago the daughter if a co-worker of mine got into trouble with gang members.
She saw a little girl that was in trouble and intervene in the situation and everything turned against her.
The few days that followed this day were terrible; she got beaten up and threaten multiple times.
Police and school worked together and the main little girl that was the trouble maker got kick out a school and placed into a closed facility for troubled kids.
But later that same week, other members of the group told her it wasn’t over. And what do you now a few days later, my co-worker got a phone call from school saying her daughter a tumbled down the stairs…coincidence or not? She needed to go to the hospital.
It’s terrible to see 12, 13 and 14 years old with knives and guns, threatening others…aren’t they supposed to be playing and being kids?
While growing up I wasn’t living in the city so I never saw much besides fields of corns and cows.
It is a rough world out there. As much as I love the city, I don’t know if I would want to raise my kids here; it is scary.
Do any of you have experiences/ stories that are related to gangs?
