The Big Lie - Gangs


Gangs Big Lie - Prison Video VignetteIncarceration is a part of gang life.  What many gang recruiters do not explain is the harsh reality of life in prison.  It is not a fun place to be.  When someone is in jail or prison, he or she is alone.  Because a gang is often seen as a business (to gang members), when one of their “employees” is incarcerated, he or she is not able to make money for the gang and is therefore no use to the gang.  Repeatedly, in the video, the audience will hear how gang members are abandoned once they are incarcerated and the hardships suffered while behind bars.
