I chose this project because of a show called "Gangland" that I had watched. I thought it was insane that a gang was so powerful, had so much control, and was involved in so much corruption. It interested me that people would want to do all the irrational and inhuman things that MS-13 does just for fun. I didn’t understand their logic, so I wanted to find out more information on the gang. I think my project went to a different level of what we talked about in class, mostly because we never talked about gangs in general (we talked about the war, drug, and the violence problems). We did not talk about the reasons behind the Latin American violence. In my paper, we explore the concepts, and find out the violence was because of the business of the gangs. I am not very surprised with what I found out per say, the only thing that really shocked me was how young the kids are when they join the gang and how large the gang really is. MS-13 is the strongest and most organized Latin American gang in the United States, and because it is so internationally connected, it is even more powerful. I hope if anything, I informed you about how dangerous the gang is and what to avoid when you see people in the gang. You would be surprised that there is even a few of these cliques in Kansas.
