Parents Clash Over Which Gang Their Child Will Join? Crips or Westside Ballers…

Joseph Manzarenas was charged with disorderly conduct, harassment and domestic violence for a fight inside a Hollywood video store.

A young couple got into a fracas over which gang their 4 year old will join. The mom is a Crip and the father is a Westside Baller and apparently the tot’s gang affilation is major arguement in the household. Unbelieveable.

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.

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. Manzanares is Hispanic and belongs to the Westside Ballers gang, the woman said.

  3. To Juan Lopez,
    You’re full of crap. This is coming from someone who knows what’s up. The bottom line is that all the kids in the barrio aren’t in gangs and most of them manage to survive. That means gangs aren’t the necessary evil you’re claiming them to be. They’re glorified by pop culture so kids join them. The gangs get kids when they’re young because no one with a fully formed mind would join one. They’re like a cult in that way. Apologists like you are more harm than good. The truth is, gang members are those people in society who are either too stupid or too undisciplined to make it in the real world. And you can usually find the same weakness in their parents. Get out. Get an education. Move away from the sewer the hoods have become.

    Tell me, Juan, what part of the following story has anything to do with surviving in the hood:
    Among the most notorious local crimes attributed to MS-13 was the gang rape of two deaf girls, one 14, the other 17, in a Somerville park in 2002. Three MS-13 gang members were charged in the brutal rapes, during which one victim was knocked from her wheelchair before the assault. The younger victim has cerebral palsy.

  4. no disrespect to you folks, but you just dont see the real reason why kids join gangs. As a former Gang Member ( information witheld), Ive seen many of children forced to fight for their survival everyday after school,in public, even at their own house.
    You people see gangs as a threat. True, but in most cases, the very same gang doing all the destruction is the very same gang protecting you from other, more violent gangs. My Father is a the Chief of Police in Venice Beach, and he sees this type of actvity all the time. You shouldn’t criticize people in gangs, because frankly you have No idea what most of these young individuals go through on a DAILY basis. I’m not glorifying gang banging, but trying to explain just a little bit of what goes on around us, sometimes right in our faces.

  5. What has this world really come to when parent’s(just children themselves) argue over something like this! Argue over, what school to send them to or who is staying home to watch the child that night, NOT what gang to put them in!!!

  6. i think they both should thrown in jail for bein so stupid i a tolder watz it gonna do drive bys with milk bottles
    get real people

  7. This is not just totally unbelievable, it’s disgusting! Ignorant, uneducated… if anything you should be discussing what schools are best for the child… lord! the kid is 4 years old. WTF!

  8. wow who would even tell the popo they waz in the crip or the baller sthats just stupied i would of alreagy killed dat mutherfucker
