Bloods'n'Crips actions must be applied universally and
therefore would most likely disagree with the culture of violence created by gang and government's lack of intervention According to Today's Catholic, when a gang presence becomes evident in a community, there are steps that the Catholic church advises to help alleviate the problem. In the opinion of the Church, the youth are a part of our community, they should be embraced. The academic support, the recreational activities and the companionship [that are often found in joining a gang] can all be provided by a local Catholic parish. By helping the troubled youth, the church can do wonders in illuminating the gang problems that have gripped our community and get one step closer to putting an end to gang violence.
