Akers’ social learning explanation (of why something works or happens the way it does) statesthat people learn irregular behavior by watching/ noticing/ celebrating/ obeying and learningfrom the social factors in their day to day live sit also talks about major ideas of differentialassociation, fake, definitions, and differential reward It says that this action will likely producebehavior that violates social and legal normal behaviors and the person will confirm followingbehavior when people differentially spend time with/talk to those who expose them tomentally sick patterns when the mentally sick pattern is differently reinforced overfollowing/obeying models.
Marxist’s explanation (of why something works or happens the way it does) has (a system where people own money and valuable things) the as the cause of crime. Marxist explanation (of why something works or happens the way it does) states that ownership of the means of production by the (person who uses money to make more money) ruling class produces a(community of people/all good people in the world) that is basically and mostly criminogenic. The explanation (of why something works or happens the way it does) believes that the crimes committed are either, “crimes of change (to help someone)/place to live and sleep or crimes ofresistance to the (person who uses the money to make more money) system.
When scratching the surface on what causes gangs to form, (a person’s strong feeling that he or she must do certain things in order to be liked by people of the same age) is one of those causes. Many young people gangs members will be stared pressured into joining a gang bymaking it all sound beautiful and amazing. Money plays a big role in the beauty part whenrecruited new gang members for example kids 6-10 year-old kid who isn’t officially part of agang could make $200 to $400 while working a small part-time job for the gang. Althoughthese are important factors they are not effective enough to make kids atthat age or older todo things that are against their morals One of the ways that kid’s morals could becontrolled/moved around/misled into excepting gang violence is by using or having theinfluence of television and movies. This is an example of the social learning explanation (of why something works or happens the way it does). An average child spends more time lookingat a TV than she/he spends on their homework or class. Since nobody can completely controlwhat goes on in a kids mind then they must be learning something while watching theirfavorite shows, movies, or cartoons. Very little of TV shows are educational on TVs these daysso many other negatively affecting ideas are being soaked up (like a towel) during this timeperiod. Shows on television today are very violent and shown from a gang’s or gang’s member’s (way of seeing things / sensible view of what is and is not important). A matureadult can tell how bad the condition the gangs are living in. However, a child will take that theexistence of violent gang is acceptable. ‘The Ends Gives a good reason for the Means’ is taughtthrough shows by some means where the “good person” defeats the “bad person” throughviolence and is going to be punished. As a child, the kid thinks this is perfectly acceptablebecause he knows that the “bad person” was wrong but has no idea of what acceptablepunishments there are. Blood and guts in television also takes a big part in influencing youngminds. Children who watch bloody scenes are fascinated/hypnotized by sometime they havenever been exposed to before. Older viewers who watch bloody scenes and are not worriedabout the blood but rather how much pain the victim feels. A younger mind doesn’t make thisconnection. So, a love of bloody things comes out/becomes visible, and this has been seen in(more than two, but not a lot of) of my friends.Unfortunately, kids who grow up watching thesethings are more likely to experience/likely to get grow up with a stronger acceptance ofbecoming a violent gang member or ‘violent-acceptant’ person. “Gangs bring theirresponsible/unpaid normal behaviors of (community of people/all good people in the world)into intimate contact with the individual.”1, (Marshall B Clinard, 1963). So, in end/end result, TV leads a child to think and believe that violence is acceptable and in no way wrong. This canor will likely clear/understandable/show and make its way into a gang situation. This is themost important when parents don’t spend time with their kids explaining what is right andwhat is wrong or right that is (game of chance)/(expression of satisfaction) displayed don’t theTV, and these days it’s not surprising that newer books and types of music will encourage thistype of thought and ideas. Once a kid or teenager (related to the mind and brain) writes thoseideas into their head they can easily be more accepting of the idea of joining a gang if theyrun into any family or outside problems. For instance, children who don’t have theirparentsaround as much will often feel starved of love. Parents feel that food on the table isenough to show their love for their child and are often busy working because of this. Childrenwho are in those kinds of families are more likely to join a gang first out of boredom and feellike theyhave the sense of belonging that didn’t exist with their family. As time passes a formof family relationship, love or relationship may develop between the members of the gangand the child. That’s when the bond controls how the child thinks about the gang and how ithas taken the place of their family. The new unfriendly and grouchy structure of cities alsoaffects the ease in which a boy/girl can join a gang. ” The (creation and construction/ group of objects) of gangs in cities, and latestly in suburbs, is helped by the same lack of communityamong parents. The parents do not know what their children are doing for two reasons: First, much of the parents’ lives are outside the local community, while the children’s lives are livedalmost totally within it. Second, in a fully developed community, the network of relations givesevery parent, in a sense, a community of guards/lookouts who can keep him informed of hischild’s activities. In modern living-places (city or suburban), where such a network is lessened, he no longer has such guards/lookouts.”2, (Merton Nisbet, 1971). In male gangs, problemshappen when a male tries to one-up the other to see which one is the manliest This leads togangs members participating in a “one-upmanship where each member tries to commit abigger and more violent crime or simply more crimes than the others will. Having membersparticipate in this sort idea results in a never-ending unorganized violence spree (A sort ofClockwork Orange way of thinking or in other words a (when A causes B, which causes C, etc.)In gangs with smarter members, these feelings end up trying to be the star of a crime orbecome the alpha of the gang This makes the gang much sharp/eager/ well-developed andorganized when doing/performing a crime. This sort of gang found more in the middle orupper-class people but can happen in gangs in the low rent districts too. This “one-upmanship” is the leading cause of why rival gangs fight. Many gangs feel powerful, and theywant to be feared by the surrounding people. To do this they try to take down as many gangsas they can in their neighborhoods they can be the only ones left. After the tension betweengangs fights begin to form and gang murders happen. When two gangs are in conflict makeslife very dangerous for people (who lawfully live in a country, state, etc.) who step in betweenthem in any way in the area. Less than 40% of drive-by kills their meant victim yet over 60% dokill someone. Lastly one of the greatest factors for joining a gang is for protection. Althoughfrom a different point of view, we can clearly see that joining a gang can bring greater badthan good, but that not always true for kids who live in crowded, dirty neighborhoods such asthe Bronx or the very worst case, Compton, children will be beaten and robbed if they do notjoin a gang. The gang also provides money for these children in order to win the trust andloyalty since the money feeds the family. The reason kids think that the gang they join will orcan keep them safe is that of the (talk or information that tries to change people’s minds) thegangs present or show. This is a type of (talk or information that tries to change people’s minds) can is shown when a gang member says that if anyone hurts the child they will takerevenge on who did them wrong. People in low rent areas are most often being ignored dueto poorness and race. This results in a (point of view/way of behaving) that (gives a reason to do something) that person to base their life on doing what the system that badly mistreatsthem doesn’t want. Although this completes little it is the main factor why gangs form andwhy people join them. They then do/perform crimes of resistance, which supports the Marxistexplanation of crime. So to wrap it all up gangs are products of (the health of the Earth/the surrounding conditions) we have created as a (community of people/all good people in the world). Some of these factors include bad mistreatment, newspapers, websites, and TV,greed, violence, and other gangs. There seems to be no end to the (creation and construction/ group of objects) of gangs without totally rebuilding the modern day (process of people making, selling, and buying things) and value system we put as humans. Since the chance ofthis change is very (almost nothing/very little), we must learn to successfully deal with gang sand try to keep them to a very low value. Unfortunately, there is no real organized force to help fight gangs. Of course, the police are supposed to deal with these kinds of situations the police forces regularly display their increasing inability to deal with these issues. What we need are more people to form organizations like the “GuardianAngels” a gang-like group that makes life very tough for street gangs that are breaking laws.
