Gangs are not the norm

Document Actions
The article was an unfair generalization of an entire group of people, devoid of any substantial mention of the culture’s many redeeming qualities. Yes, there are gang issues associated with the culture in Utah. No, that is not the "norm" for Polynesian families, here or elsewhere. The truth is, most Polynesian families in Utah live the "acclimated" lives of their white counterparts. Husbands and wives work steady jobs, children pursue higher education, and the majority does all of this without involvement in gangs.
