And you said that SM was not a governed gang... same said me Coffee once about BIA. When people are acting on their own, everything will turn into a chaos sooner or later. This is one of the many reasons why a gang needs leaders. Here is always "a Scorp" (or more) ready to create problems, especially into a gang whitout leaders. I said once "a gang whitout leaders is like a body whitout head". This is the truth. BIA would fail even whitout Scorp inside it, like SM.
And yeah, the whole 'no leader' factor sort of screwed a lot of things up... but it made the whole gang a lot of fun (at least while they lasted)... and when new people would ask to join, there was a high percent chance that we didn't need them at all so we'd deny them... that or give them a training session to see how they do before discussing about whether to let them in or not. It was functioning, but again there wasn't leadership... which lead to some people becoming bias and acting out in our gangs at times. Though, we felt as if having a leader would create "another Bush" (which represented corruption to us at the time), so we made it more of a group of people that would consult each other on gang decisions rather than "I'm in charge, so do what I say!" which was a nice change... but I guess good things must always come to an end.
Alright, I guess I'm done here. What happened is in the past, so it's best to stop picking at the old scabs of the past.
