Let it grow up and decide for himself. Maybe if he is lucky he will decide to avoid gangs altogether.

Manzanares is Hispanic and belongs to the Westside Ballers gang, the woman said. "They have different ideas on how the baby should be raised.
Deciding which church to take a child to is raising him. Picking a gang for him to join is not raising him, especially if he is 4 years old.

Manzanares was charged with disorderly conduct, harassment, and domestic violence. He was transported to the Adams County Detention Facility.
