I just watched a very disturbing show on how gangs rule the south side of Chicago. And how much they made selling drugs. I know this probably isnt the answer, but if it wasnt profitable to sell drugs, and job training & education were offered in its place, then would the gangs cease to exist? Or is this just naive thinking?
I don't think it's necessarily the drugs but more the money and power. They come from a world where a legitimate success doesn't seem like much of an option. They'll never go away completely but with mentoring, education and opportunity it could change the lives for some.
