Many of the adolescents I used to work with in residential were gang bangers. Some of them were pretty hard core and had the scars to prove it. I've always been fascinated with the gang lifestyle, and the signs/symbols used for communication in their tattoos and graffiti and talking to my students about it was always interesting. One of my favorite shows is Gangland and several months ago they covered a motorcycle gang that was originally from Colorado Springs called the Sons of Silence. We have a lot of motorcycle traffic that passes through town here and I was surprised that we had never seen any SOS after watching the show. I saw this gentleman at the Royal Gorge. I wanted to talk to him but Heather put a major kaibash on that.
