THis is very confusing. It says Castro St. then it says "the park" without identifying which one then it says Castro Park.

Gangs? In Mountain View?

Farms? In Berkeley?

I watched as many seemingly effeminate boys flailed their arms wildly at each other. I can't see how anyone would have gotten hurt from the way those little boys tried to fight(dance with each other?). I guess when they realized that, they had no power, they decided to throw stuff...I had an ex-girlfriend who acted the same way.
Tough kids (LOL)

I agree with Boxer actually. If those are gang members, Hollywood has way oversold things.

I watched them run from the cops at the end, being at least 40 pounds overweight and struggling to hold up their oversized pants, huffing and puffing. A pretty sad sight to say the least

Reminds me of that classic Ice Cube rap song about tennis rackets.

Wanna be gang members sometimes turn into bona fide gang members
