Understanding the Deadly Minds of America's Street Gangs
by Loren Christensen
Many people think that gang violence is concentrated in the inner cities. Loren Christensen, author of "Skinhead Street Gangs" says they are mistaken. His newest gang research found that gangs are in the big cities and small town, in the suburbs and the rural areas, and on both coasts and in the heartland. Ten years ago, gangbangers fought with fists, clubs and pistols,. Now they have incredible firepower, and they don't think twice about using it. Here, Christensen lets gang members, former gang members, and street cops tell you in their own words how gangbangers think, why they are so violent, who they target and what (if anything) can be done to curb the growth of gangs in America. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, 200 pages.
