Gangs, Guns, & Violence Documentary


Added 08/15/2006
This is a documentary about gangs in Stanislaus County. This 30-minute video includes interviews with police, local leaders, prosecurors, an ex-gang member and a secondary victim. Some of the images are a little graphic as they show victims of gang violence. The video does include a number of social theories (social disorganization, differential association, social learning, strain & subculture) that explain violence and makes a good discussion after viewing. I use in my Sociology of Violence Course.
