During the recent years, we had been shocked by news involving delinquents in
gangsterims act. Teenangers of 21st century in Malaysia are not afraid of taking any violence act
towards other peapole. Bullying, vandalisms, playing truant and threatening are among the
common acts that are always made by them. In order to achieve what they have intended, they
are willing to use any tactics associated with violence although it might endanger others life.
Teenangers nowadays do not show respect to their teachers and it has come to the level where
they are not afraid of speaking vulgar words. There are many reasons of why teenagers are
involving in gangsterism.
First of all, influences by the peer group can create gangsterism cases. As we all know,
peer group plays an important role in moulding ones characters because they will be able to
lead their friends in doing something whether to do good things or bad things. Challenges from
their peer group will make them not to feel frightened anymore in doing bad things especially in
school, while they are involved themselves in gangsterism. Peer group is the main reason of the
gangsterism happened among teenagers because usually teenagers tend to share their
problems with their friends rather than discussing it with their family.
Another reason leads to gangsterism is the teenagers nowadays are lack of parental
love from their parents who are busy twenty-four hours to find money until they do not realize
that their children are neglected by them. They also do not play their role as parents who are the
people that are responsible to provide their children with a good spiritual and moral background.
Besides that, the environment of the teenagers will also create gangterism to be happened.
Teenangers who have a good environment such as the conducive environment in their home
will be able to keep a distance with this social problem, while teenagers who have bad
environment will involved themselves in gangsterism easily because only this way, they will feel
more released.
Furthermore, the influences of mass media also lead to gangsterism. The violent action
in films or dramas will influence the teenagers to follow whatever action played by the author.
Last but not least, the reason of gangsterism cases among teenangers might be also because
there are no specific rules and strict enforcement from the authorities. The teenangers seem like

do not have any feeling of frighten to do gangsterism because they know the rrules and strict
enforcement are not exist anymore to punish
Based on the research I had done, it can be conclude that there is a great necessity to
give more attention towards cases that related with young delinquents who involve themselves
in gangsterism. This problem had to be wisely handled to ensure that their future will not be
ruined due to their involvement in gangsterism. Thus, parents, government, and society have to
play their roles effectively in order to curb the spreading of gangsterism among school students.
In addition, need to realize the consequences by each action or behavior which taken by them.
They have to aware that each behavior that deviant and forbidden to the law will cause them to
be punished. Therefore, government need to strict and regulate the available law, so that
teenagers will be afraid to involve in gangsterism. As for parents, they need to give full attention
to their children and guide them to the right path before things getting worst and difficult to
handle. Society also is one of the important elements to curb this matter by providing
information to the police. With the cooperation from each member in the country, there is a high
possibility that this social illness will finally found its remedy.
