The author is trying to say that the gang member caught up in the cycles of retaliatory violence and want peace. Many gang youths do not want to die, but doesn’t want to see their people such as friends, and family get killed, and don’t want to face criminal justice consequences that come from a participating in violent crimes. Not all the gang is willing to resolve standing conflicts with their rivals. Their suggesting is that gang truce can be important element of a multi-layered effort to deal with complex gang violence problem. While I cited this article comparing each one of them this would likely help me with my bibliography topic because of the details of gang wanting peace.
