Ans. – Others in competition labeled them as gangs.
7. How is an organization labeled a gang?
Ans. – An organization is labeled a gang by corporate espionage, infiltrations and other business strategies and warfare tactics. Then the names and acronyms of the organizations were incorporated into state codes and statutes which copy writes and trademarks them under the word GANG.
8. What is attached to the word gang?
Ans. – Criminal Street Gang, Street Terrorism, Gang Crime and Gang Member. To attach yourself to the word gang carries a hefty penalty. To admit to be a gang member or a gangster is to come under the jurisdiction of the one who owns the word.
OUR MISSION: (In Part)
Our Mission is to prevent gang violence and intervene in situations that can be harmful to the growth and development of inner-city YOUth. Our Mission is gang reorganizing. The current gang structure is not designed to help communities in a positive way. We see the potential of these so-called gangs as tribes that need to be reconnected to the uplifting of their respective villages. Our program is designed to educate, organize and unify.
