For this week, I'm asking you to write a little more specific post as a way of sharing your topic ideas with the class. Briefly answer the following questions:
1. How would you describe the topic you plan on researching? Try to do it in a few sentences.
2. What are the main things you want to know more about with this topic?
3. How is this topic connected to life in north Minneapolis or, even better, the site where you're working?
4. What's the best source you've found so far on this topic? What makes it helpful?
The topic i'm mainly focus on is gangs. Not just gangs itself but the causes and effect of it. Also i want it to involved with teens and drug trafficking. Why are teens joining gangs and selling drug at the same times. That is main focus. This connects with north Minneapolis is because north minn. is known for the shooting and killling. This doesnt tie my topic and my site but learning about violence, i have a better sense of what gangs are about and help others to avoid it as best as they can. I just recently check out a book at Wilson Library on Juvenile Gang. What really interesting about this book is because of the drug trafficking teens are doing when they are in gangs. It struck me that if selling drug at a early age, most likely you are gonna be a big drug leader. Selling drugs and being in the gang is almost like a cycle. It repeat itself over and over again. How? It starts when they are in their teens. They join a gang for one reason, to earn fast cash for selling drug. they get big on selling drug and recuit more teens to do more selling.
