GANGS are the ROT of all societies
20 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The narrators state that this film is about "WAR" in America. I saw and heard A LOT OF HATRED for anyone that's not African-American. It seems to me that the film is attempting to JUSTIFY the drugs and violence and the fight-for-turf associated with ALL gangs. Race or geography is never an excuse. Gang members need to QUIT calling their THUG LIFE a "War". They need to quit blaming skin color for their inability to be decent human beings. The narrators were over-the-top with hatred and loathing. It came through loud and clear. It was in their words, their facial expressions, their threats …their demeanor. I could not stomach this pathetic attempt to justify or "explain" this evil ROT that inhabits ANY society …especially in America, the greatest country in the world.
