Don't Join a Street Gang Tee

While it might seem out of the realm of possibility for some, there are many reasons why young people choose to join a gang. It can mean companionship, a sense of family, and protection that they haven’t experienced elsewhere in their lives. But it also does include entering a world of risk, abuse and criminal activity. 

Gangs may be organized based on a number of factors, including ethnicity, race, or geographic location. It is thought that there are around 33,000 gangs in the USA, which is a 15 percent rise since 2006, and it is estimated that half of all violent crimes in London, England are committed by a gang member.

  1. Witness intimidation in gang-related crime is often considered a normal part of gang dynamics. Although statistics regarding the prevalence of witness intimidation are not possible to obtain, it is estimated that 36% of witnesses and victims are intimidated by a gang before the court case. However, this is often complex, and in some situations, an individual can be the perpetrator, witness, and victim all at once.  (National Gang Center)
  2. It remains that being a member of a gang could have far-reaching consequences. A study by the University of Washington found gang membership in adolescence is correlated with lower educational attainment, poor health and engaging in substance misuse, all of which could have significant consequences into adulthood.
