A WNCT Roundtable On Gangs

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Gang violence is a problem that affects more than just specific neighborhoods.
    
9 On Your Side takes a deeper look into the danger.

The FBI reports there are 33,000 violent street, motorcycle and prison gangs active in the U.S. with about 1-and-a-half-million members. And those numbers are almost 40-percent greater than just 4-years ago.

We gathered several local experts with various viewpoints on the subject to talk about the problem and what we as a society must do to fix it. 
    
We sat down at an area high school to help shed light on an issue some feel doesn't affect people in the east. 
    
Part one of our series examines the gang mentality and why kids find themselves getting involved. Part two of the series examines why a gang isn't just a problem for specific neighborhoods. Part three examines how it starts and what factors influence kids to join a gang.
