    Anyone watching Gangland on tv?

    Don't know how old/new the show is but I just started watching it. It is a series that shows the life of different gangs all over the place. I wanted to post this under a different foum but had a feeling it would get moved here. I think if you have not sceen it,it would be worth while to learn from it. All I can think of is all the out there have no idea what is really going on out there!

    I watch it and never knew how many gangs there really are,it seems like there are thousands with only one goal to break the law,Then if they get sent to prison they still operate while inside the walls,I feel that there is only one way to eradicate the gang problem but were too humane to do it,but we will put a rabid dog down in a heart beat

    I hear you! The will never learn that these thugs are EXACTLY like the terminator 'Listen, and understand. That THUG is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!' Prison or the thought of death does nothing to stop them. I like to say if you are infested with rats you don't tame them or try to get along with them. You call the exterminator and get rid of them!

    I saw as couple of shows yesterday: Gotti Boys and the Warlocks. The one with the Warlocks had an ATF agent that worked the group undercover and got made because he was carrying his badge while undercover.

    Hate it

    The show seems to elevate these thugs to an almost heroic icon status; the premise is bad it can not be healthy to glamourize this criminal subculture. Our awareness in order to defend ourselves against this subculture can not compare to the damage done by advertising this life style to our youth.

    The sad thing is why they exist, and it’s only because we let them!

    Couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to discuss the Hells Angels episode w/a member. He stated that some of the story was exaggerated for TV and to not believe everything you see.
    So now I believe about 99% of it.
