Why does this break your heart?

Gangs/drugs give certain ethic groups bad names; For example Donald Trump has called out Hispanics for being "...The worst elements of Mexico..." (http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trumps-epic-statement-on-mexico-2015-7) and sending over drug dealers and rapists. I am a Mexican-American and that really offends me because neither me nor my family are criminals, but "El Chapo" seems to represent all Mexicans. -Sam FBS
Gangs are getting more and more people killed everyday. People join because they want to feel cared about, however, it almost never ends well. People like to join because of the money and the control they can have. Drugs are also a terrible thing. You start on the drug path and you try something then want something that gives you a little bit bigger reaction and you going down that road and trying all these bad drugs and then your dead because your always wanting something better. Drugs are terrible and need to stop. They can seriously harm you, people know it can harm you, so it needs to stop. - Chase FBS








Research and Facts About this Heartbreak
Some estimates say that in the US (beyond just the federal government), we spend over $51 billion total on the Drug War. We’ve spent over a trillion dollars since the beginning of the War on Drugs, during Richard Nixon’s presidency. The war on drugs forces police to focus on nonviolent drug offenders, rather than on violent criminals. 82% of all drug arrests are possession only, according to the group law enforcement against prohibition. Drug arrests have significantly contributed to our growing, unsustainable incarceration rates. Studies have found that treatment, not enforcement, is the best way to decrease drug abuse. If we legalized and then taxed illegal drugs at the same level as alcohol and tobacco, we could make 46.7 billion a year in tax revenues.
- According to the FBI in 2011, there were 33,000 violent street, motorcycle, and prison gangs active in the U.S., with more than 1.4 million members (a 40% increase from 2009). (Dosomething.org)
-About 95% of hard core gang members are high school dropouts. (Think Twice)

Why should other people care about this heartbreak?
It is sad, because more and more young child are now involve in drug traffic and their hope for a better life is now very low. Also, the government has a hard time dealing with that problem because they don’t have the resources and the money necessary to fight against this plague. So, if Central American governments don’t get together and with a little of help by the United States and Canada, this fight against drug crisis will last for long and will become even more problematic.
