I don't think this "straight edge" gang will spread very far. Do you honestly think that when they bump into another competitive gang that they will survive? They've attacked people, but they haven't made enemies with another (real) gang yet, so I'd like to see what would happen.
Are they going to tell the Mexicans in LA to stop selling drugs? Or the Puerto Ricans of the Bronx? Africans of Detroit? Seriously?
No, they'll get a taste of reality soon enough. . .

Being Straight Edge myself this is stupid. The whole point of the straight edge lifestyle is about going against the the normal "bad" habits of society. Thinking like this is goes completely against the grain of what the movement stands for.
But don't get the idea that Straight Edger's are all "middle class kids who listen to hardcore music" because in all reality it is a choice of health much like a vegan would choose.
I'm just hoping this doesn't go any farther and soil the true motivations behind the movement.
