Gang violence is an issue that has been plaguing the city of San Francisco for years. It is an injustice to many different victims. The first victims are civilians that are injured, killed, or just too frightened to go outside because of gangs. Another are those who are wrongly accused of being in a gang and persecuted based on their outward appearance and where they live. Finally, it is the gang members themselves that are being wronged, not just by each other, but by the fact that these (usually) young men feel that there is no other option but to join these gangs.
