    Allan, have you ever heard the term 'looking through rose-colored glasses'? That is precisely what you are doing. I am sure in your mind, the bad things that gangs did was for some small 'transgression', but other folks telling what they actually SEE are an exaggeration to you...now does that mean that they are not paranoid? Nope, but neither does you saying they are a 'neighborhood asset'. Don't romanticize gangs...it negates any valid point you might make.
