Older gang members often prey on younger member's fears/need for attention in continual power-play vacuum often fed by lack of positive male role-modeling and examples of success in education, work, community and family/social sphere. As the older member makes demands, or sets difficult expectations/challenges, the younger member is, eventually, sucked in to full-blown gang involvement. Later, that young member, may later spin the same psychological games with new recruits, wannabes, other neighborhood youth. Power, respect, control - corrupted.
