He is lucky that is a Jury I am unable to be on. No sympathy for me. Plus I just had Jury duty anyways.

“I’m proud, but at the same time, I’m disappointed because there’s no understanding. It’s cool to be in a gang, it’s cool because gangs breed love and family and friendship. A lot of people don’t understand the positives of being in a gang. If there’s no understanding or explanation of why this gang was created, what’s the origins of this gang, the rules and regulations, then it becomes a disappointment.”

They were formed to give young men a sense of family, a sense of structure, that they weren't getting at home. He's right, that was the original intent. But some people question that if these young men had a broken home, why didn't people like Snoop try to fix that problem instead of giving them an alternative on the streets?

Some are trying to make this a case of government infringing free speech too. I read about the same case with headlines stating "Rapper to serve life sentence for lyrics" too... and more than one.
