The local issue that I think about the most in my community is gang violence. The reason why this issue is so important is that people every day are getting shot, injured and killed. Young men my age are joining gangs, they believe by having their pants below their waist makes them cool.
The men in my community are setting a bad bad examples, because by the time we as kids get older there will be more and more violence. What I think needs to be done ……. well they need to have more and more police officers and cameras where they can watch what is going wrong.
