When’s the last time you read a headline about a suspected gang member being arrested for something that wasn’t explicitly gang-related? It’s not overly common. I know, I read an awful lot of crime story headlines on a day-to-day basis.
To be fair, most of those are only suspected of being gang members and since their arrests aren’t tied to the gangs, it’s not overly relevant who they spend their time with.
Yet there’s a double standard at play with the media.
