Power over people is what every criminal wants, it is what makes them powerful, it is what makes them leaders. But power over ones own life is what every member of the strongest gang wishes for. It is like the attraction of a mongoose to a bear. No matter how dangerous and how gangster some gang members may be, they still want to have a family, a house, and have power over other people because that is what they want. The only difference between a Mafia member and a school teacher is that the Mafia member desires more power, more honor, and better living than the school teacher.
The question is how can we find out who is the strongest gang in the world? Well, it begins with understanding how a gang works. Gangs work together, they have a common enemy or targets and they will do anything to stop this enemy from fulfilling his objective. The death of one gang member marks the end of an era and another begins.
The first step to finding out who is the strongest gang in the world knows what makes the gang members want to become part of that gang. Is it a vision of power and honor? Or is it something else?
A vision of power and honor means one thing. Gang members are put into a position of honor and responsibility. When they make their death worth something they are rewarded and when their death is marked with a loss of life, they are often made to suffer for their position. The death of a gang member is seen as a sign of the death of the entire gang. They must suffer in order to gain something. If members of the gang know that they will be killed, they will do whatever it takes to be part of the gang and continue to fight.
On the other hand there is also the other side of the coin. If members of the gang know that they will not be killed, they may try to find a way to get out of being captured or killed. If one gang member finds a way out of prison, this can create enough capital to fund the continuation of the criminal activities. This could mean a route of escape, or it could mean providing money for the brothers or sisters in the future. It is these very factors which create the need for revenge. There is no reason that all death sentences should be carried out.
The gang members are being asked to take revenge for one reason or another. If the gang members believe they are being taken advantage of them may want to eliminate anyone who is being in a position of power. Another reason a gang may try to eliminate someone is if they feel they are being injusticeed. For example, a gang member may feel that they are being robbed of some profits. In order to eliminate this person, they may engage in a turf war and attempt to eliminate all rival gangs that are located near the location of where the robbery is taking place. The idea being to eliminate everyone who is in a position of power and thus leaving no one to profit from the robbery.
Sometimes gang members will attempt to hang someone who is perceived as a threat to the gang. If the person is found dead, they will try to electrocute them or have another gang member hold a cross above the body until the body is completely dead. Even if the person does not actually commit suicide by hanging, they will be killed because they threaten the gang with violence. There are many ways that death row can be used by a gang.
