Rise of the girl gangs (New York)
NY Post ^ | 12-5-11 | BRAD HAMILTON

Posted on 12/05/2011 5:04:05 PM PST by dynachrome

When teen hoop star Tayshana Murphy was chased and shot dead by gang members in her project in Morningside Heights in September, few knew her death was a double tragedy.

Despite being one of the city’s best high-school basketball players and a likely WNBA draft pick, Murphy had been drawn into a deadly street crew and was killed because of a rivalry with another gang.

Cops now have revealed that Murphy was caught in a troubling new trend: good girls recruited by neighborhood gangs into lives of violence, where carrying weapons and committing crimes is as commonplace as shooting a free throw.

Too bad they won’t go after each other until there is only one left standing

That rule of decorum we guys have about not hitting a lady? It's now open season in NYC. Not that many of them there would bear more than a passing resemblance to the fairer sex, anyhoo. Something about ratty hair, baggy pants, and a 9mm doesn't exactly make me want to hold the door for them, unless it's attached to the back of the meat wagon.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I have never lived in a big city, but the very thought makes me claustrophobic. You are surrounded by so many people that you don't really have the choice of not interacting with people who target you. When you live in the suburbs, you spend your traveling time in a car where thugs can't get at you easily. When you live in a big city, most of your traveling time is on foot, where you are vulnerable to any thug that wants to harass you. I can fully see why young kids would need to be in some sort of gang to protect themselves from being victimized, without really having a choice about it.

I hate cities, but Agenda 21 is going to jam us all into massive government housing projects run like prisons. And prisons always have gangs.

It's the truth. My wife grew up in Brooklyn, and I grew up about as remote and country as you can get (How 2 people of such differing backgrounds got together is a story for another time...) Whenever we went into "the city" to visit her family, I was on-edge the whole time. Her idea of showing me the sights only pushed me to a greater state of "awareness".

The city never looked so good as it did in my rear-view mirror...

I think their working definition of “good” is “not in trouble with the law up to that point.”

Well, it's okey-dokey for girls to take drugs, get drunk, have sex, have abortions, go out with men twice their age, be prostitutes, get those dreadful tattoos ALL over their body, use foulest, filthiest language, be porno "stars"--why not this??

In my old neighborhood the girls fought each other with the best of'em. They carried razor blades in their ratted, hair-sprayed within an inch of their life hair-dooz (white).

My father moved us out of the neighborhood when I got jumped...by a gang of girls (black). They were after my grocery money. I ran for my life and, as you can figure out, I was a VERY fast runner.

Girls were mean, tough, nasty, vicious and as bent as the boys. NOTHING has changed.

Hey, I wonder if any of then became politicians....

Gangs are just to fill the vacuum created by the destruction of the traditional family.

I guess those in NYC should carry around a metal rod and beat those girls in the head into submission like the parolee MacDonalds worker did!

What does Bernie Goetz have to say about this new NYC development?

Me: This is Jack Hydrazine with FRTV and I’m here with Bernie Goetz (aka the ‘subway vigilante’ and owner of Vigilante Electronics) taking a ride on the No. 2 express train through the city that never sleeps. How’s everything today, Bernie?

Bernie: Fine. How’s by you?

Me: Excellent! Say, Bernie, are you familiar with today’s news about the rise of girl gangs in NYC?

Bernie: I’ve been noticing this growing trend for the past few years. It took the Libs this long to broadcast that old news? No wonder they called it the Dinosaur Media Complex! They are always behind the 8 ball when it comes to informing the public on rising criminal trends.

Me: In your opinion, Bern, what’s the best way the average citizen in NYC can best prepare to deal with this problem when this kind of trouble finds them in subway or other location in the Big Apple?

Bernie: Buy a gun, learn how to shoot it, get to the range as often as you can, know the laws in regards to them, be willing to use it in a life and death situation, shoot to kill ONLY, when in doubt pray and spray, or go Mozambique-style if possible. And don’t forget to keep a knife on you as back up or carry another gun? The more the better! The bigger the caliber the better!

Me: Are you carrying right now, Bern?

Bernie: No comment.

Me: If right now we were to be accosted by one of these notorious girl gangs would you shoot them?

Bernie: No comment. I gotta be careful of what I say, Jack! Just because I endorse carrying concealed doesn’t stop that idiot Bloomberg from wanting to arrest me for such. He won’t but I like to stay discrete.

Me: Well, there you have it right from the horse’s mouth. Live from downtown NYC this is Jack Hydrazine with FRTV. Back to you, JimRob!

The idea that women are not guilty of the exact same behaviors as men is an untenable rejection of scripture.

“fill the vacuum created by the destruction of the traditional family”

You got it. Feral tribes get formed. A dysfunctional family is better than no family. Few can make it as lone wolves.

Kids EVERYWHERE, cities, burbs, country, wherever, WILL behave if there are interested parents, preferably two. Fatherless boys AND girls have trouble wherever they happen to be, in my opinion. Contrary to what Murphy Brown and the man-hating libbers say, fathers are ESSENTIAL.
Mothers can't do it by themselves, usually; it takes two, as God planned. Divorce has MUCH to do with fractured families. Divorce-remarry-divorce-remarry = kids tossed from pillar to post: fodder for trouble, drugs, etc.

Also, there were just as many extended families in city neighborhoods as there were anywhere else. And, sadly, there are just as FEW extended families now in cities, burbs and small towns, just by the nature of the fractured, transient American families.
In my urban neighborhood I was known and taken care of by any stay-at-home mother. My father was ill and worked only when he could. So my mother worked. I was taken care of by a stay-at-home neighborhood lady named Daisy.

Am I wrong?

Idaho and Montana aren’t relocating anyone to big cities. Get your land out there now. You can get homes that are more self-sufficient/off the grid setups too.

A couple of points from a retired member of the NYPD who now teaches high school.
1)This is hardly new and hardly a trend.
2)They left one, key word out of this article. LESBIAN. These gangs are predominately lesbian in nature and “more attractive” recruits are viewed as “trophies”. It is not uncommon to see these “couples” on the streets, very often, with their children, from a previous relationship of the “more attractive” member.
Sorry if I ruined anyone’s dinner, but its something I see just about every day. I even remember, at least 5 years ago, there being a lesbian gang in the MIDDLE school across the street from my school.

It’s interesting how the LSM ‘forgets’ those sordid little details.

The entertainment exeuctives made the thug culture cool and they should make it uncool now before any more souls are lost to it.

Sad, sad, sad.

Now that people like Ellen Degeneris and Rosy O’Donnell are praised and given TV shows and big salaries, Lesbian thuggery has become ever more acceptable.

God help the sweet little innocent girls who have to mingle with these butches in the schools every day.

I could not disagree with anything that you said about this situation.

When I was a kid growing up in the suburbs in the 1950s, I was corrected, when I was out in public away from my parents, by adults who did not even know me, and it never occurred to me to question that adult’s authority. (Don’t get me wrong I was a well-behaved little girl, but I was an adventurous tomboy, who needed to be told to stop doing dangerous things on occasion.)

Today, childen are not taught to show respect to any adults, including their own parents. They are not taught self-control and often do not see it practiced in their own homes. But I think the primary problem is what you spelled out — fatherless homes.
