You always hear that parental involvement is vital for a kid to grow up and be a productive citizen.

A couple can't agree on which gang their 4-year-old toddler should join.

A fight about the decision led to a public disturbance with the father's arrest. Joseph Manzanares went to the video store where his girlfriend worked, threatened to kill her and knocked over several video displays, police told KMGH Denver.

Police arrested Manzanares at his home, Commerce City police Sgt. Joe Sandoval told KMGH Denver.

The girlfriend told authorities they were fighting over which gang their son should join. The girlfriend, who is black, is a member of the Crips while Manzanares, who is Hispanic, belongs to the Westside Ballers.

"They have different ideas on how the baby should be raised," Sandoval said. "Basically, she said they cannot agree on which gang the baby would 'claim.'"

...


They're piss-poor role models if you ask me. Shouldn't they have been trying to kill one another instead of ****ing?

(sniffle) It's kind of like Romeo and Juliet. And at the same time, it's kind of not.

Rainman missed a relevent poll opportunity here.

Should the kid join the Crips or Westside Ballers.

We could have all weighed in with our choices and reasoning, and then sent the results to these warm and loving parents in an effort to help them with this critical life decision.

I'd go with the Ballers. Better to be a pescado grande in a estanque pequeño.

I have no idea what the hell you just said, but I'm sure I agree.

I voted for foster care, but if I had to pick, I think I'd go Crips. I foresee a confrontation some day between the two gangs, and it seems to me like the Crips will be bringing a lot more people. The Crips probably have a better pension plan, too.

LOL. That would probably be the best. It would cover all angles.

Where is the "to join this gang you must be spayed or neutered" option.

How sad is it to see parents forcing their children into something. Like a dad living through his son playing sports, or a mom living through her daughter doing....well....whatever it is that women do. Let the kid pick his own gang.

This s*** happens all the time, but usually the parents wait until at least age 10 or so before they start feeding this gang crap. We get all kinds of myspace photos of parents flashing signs with their kids, etc. They just have no respect for the community as a whole or anyone in it and need to GTFO.

I don't understand why we don't go after these gangs. They are basically terrorists, only they are citizens. We are over in Iraq fighting, why can't we fix the problems in our streets. Find all known gang members and f*cking kill them.
