Gangs online....

What used to be limited to the large inner cities has now expanded to our local neighborshoods in suburbia. Our upper middle class kids are being seduced by gangs, and at least one teen girl ran off to meet a gang member in LA.

How many parents understand this risk?

Gang divisions are now also checking the myspace and youtube profiles for gang activities. I recommend that parents address gangs with their kids. It's a risk they never dreamed they might face, but with the advent of glamourous videos professionally shot and available online and when kids are searching for gansta rap videos and finding real gans instead....the gang life might look like fun, instead of what it is.

think about it.
