Parents Argue about son’s Future…. Namely What Gang He Should Belong To

In Crime, hahahas, off-beat, unintended consequences on April 18, 2008 by Editor Z

Now I have heard of parents feuding over the future of their kids and having different visions for their children’s future. But this is ridiculous. Last week a man was arrested in Commerce City, Colorado, following an incident where the two were arguing over which gang their 4 year old son should belong to.

First saw this story via the Daily Gut.

The Denver Channel:

On Saturday, Joseph Manzanares stormed into the Hollywood Video store where his girlfriend worked, threatened to kill her and knocked over several video displays and even a computer, Commerce City Police Sgt. Joe Sandoval said.

After he ran out of the store, police were called and the 19 year old was arrested at his home.

His girlfriend told Police that they had been arguing about the upbringing of their son and which gang he should belong to. The teen mother, who is black is a member of the Crips. Manzanores is Hispanic and belongs to the Westside Ballers gang, the woman said.

I know I should take this subject more seriously, but its hard to. I mean can you imagine two members of gangs who are bitter rivals getting together and baring a son, and constantly fighting over which gang colors he should be sporting and what hommies he should be rollin with, as they say? Mind boggling. Are we gonna have to have it so their is some sort of legal system where any parents have to legally be licenced, in order to avoid having morons like this raising kids?
