Gets real interesting at the 8:45 mark. This was something I watched back when it came aired orginally, and I've always wondered what happened. I stumbled onto a sequal(posted below). I'm re-watching the original before I watch the follow up.

I live there and thought about moving out to Oceanside and looked up crime rates. Odds of being involved in a violent crime in Oceanside was like 1-270. Thought that was high until I saw it was 1-76 in my home town of Little Rock. Phone Post 3.0

Note to the age group of 16-25yr olds who I know post here-

 

Notice how NONE of these actual gang members wear their pants below their buttocks?

 

Let me tell you guys something, in my day, my dumb ass young generation fucked up warning others of police traps. IE-When people are driving and they see a cop/hidden that is radaring for speeders, after you pass him, as a COURTESY, you flash your brights at oncoming traffic. This signaled to drivers-slow down, cop up ahead.

My dumb ass generation of "gangsters" thought it'd be cool to initiate a new gang member by having them drive a car with no lights on, and whoever 'flashed" their brights to inform them that their lights weren't on, that nice person would be followed and shot-killed as part of the initiation.

This stupid ass "gangsta" trend eliminated people looking out for people in the form of flashing car headlights to warn others of cops.  This "gangsta" move helped cops.

 

 

 

Fast forward to the next gen-

They think it's "gangsta" to wear their pants low. 

1.It looks stupid as fuck, you look like a fucking clown

2.If you were an ACTUAL Gangsta, you would know that it's a regular thing to do illegal activities. As such, it was common to run from cops on foot.

Stealing a case of beer from the gas station=Gangsta

Losing your case of beer b/c while running away you fall hard on the cement b/c your pants are too low=not gangsta, but pretty damn funny

Man, talk about a blast from the past.

Still remember being a youngster and seeing the female getting jumped into the gang, and wondering the whole while, "What is wrong with these people?" Phone Post 3.0

Holy fuck I remember watching this dozens of times when it first came out when I was a little kid. It was amazing. I still remember lyrics to one of the songs in it if I remember correctly "Just another day in the neighborhood, just another day around the hood" or something like that. Damn good times...
