But I for one am not someone who makes judgements on someone. Yes, I get it the stereotype of a gang member is well that they are extremely bad and a criminal. But personally, every communication I have ever had with a gang member has been positive. I have never had a bad experience.
So back to the date… I drive up the driveway and well about 3 patch members walked out with him. This driveway did make me second guess myself because well it was long, heaps of bush and well hidden. I locked the doors. We started driving to Kmart whilst having a smoke. Which did actually make me laugh. He had to stand tall and not slouch. We get into Kmart and I go to home goods part. We were getting on well and he had some good chat too. So all in all it was bad. This is where everything changed.
We then go to the check out and I go to pay and this dude has the audacity to ask me if I can buy him a drink. I thought ya know what fuck it.
So I brought him a drink. We walk back to the car and then go to find the warehouse. As we are there. Sure, enough it was a gang tattoo.
I then realised how far he was into the gang. I asked a few questions about it which he answered. We then proceeded to go to warehouse.

Anyone who knows me knows I am no racist and I believe everybody should be treated equal no matter their race, gender or sexual orientation. We are simply equal to the next person. We hop in the car and I drive back to a different address. At this point I was actually scared. Just the way he said it. I did for a split-second fear for my safety. He hopped out the car and I locked the doors and drove off.

I called my friend Luna and told her about the date. Do I think he is a bad person? Whatever she needs to do for him, she will do," says Pough, adding, "I think a lot of girls do buy into it. For years, she has seen girls in her neighbourhood play into being a "ride or die" type of chick, says Amanda Cain, the editor of Yo' Mamma , a Toronto magazine for pregnant teens. In a sense, because she used to let her boyfriends use her, she was one, too. That's where you will find them," she says, referring to girls who wait to bail their boyfriends out of jail.
These guys trust their girlfriends with everything, Cain says. He basically needs to know that you would use that gun.
