I think there are many causes of violence such as girls, gangs, don’t get you own, and so on. You don’t always have to use violence; you can reason it out and become more mature. In some cases police officers are the cause of violence. For example my auntie boyfriend was shot and killed for trying to put on his shoes. You can use violence when you need to, but violence is not a good thing.
There is point to fight over a girl when there are lots more of them in the world. You may think that you are in love with the person, but there is somebody out there for everybody. So do not do anything to jeopardize your life over a girl.
Gangs are one of the main reasons for violence. Innocent people get killed just for wearing a certain color. When they have their shootouts, little kids and people get killed. Some people get mad if they don’t get there own way and might do something they will will regret. So please be smart.
