After running rampant yesterday with no quest objective and causing mayhem, I went back and picked up the unfinished quest of robbing the local pizza place. Ryder again pulls a gun and tries to rob the store, while CJ orders a meal. The owner pulls a gun and starts shooting, and forcing Ryder and CJ to leave. Despite their “needs” of gaining respect from the locals, they are careless as to whom they effect. Simply for the sake of respect for their gang, they pull a gun and threaten a storeowner! There’s simply little regard for others, unless they’re on CJ’s, Ryder’s, or the gang’s twisted idea of “the right.”
The next missions go from spray painting the gang symbol on walls to wiping out the local drug dealers. CJ has a meeting with some of his buddies about the declining conditions and how it’s the fault of the drug dealers. The answer is to go to the house where the dealer resides and kill him, ad everyone in the house, with no exceptions. It’s a disgusting killing of people who may not have been innocent, but certainly didn’t deserve to be killed simply because they were a drug user or a prostitute. Again we see the gang’s twisted notion of what’s right be the deciding force for action. I am discussed that this can be considered a form of entertainment.
The gang has a twisted or otherwise warped idea of values. They place their needs above anyone else, and would act for their benefit despite the fact that their actions might cause great hardship to others. They hold up a business owner despite that fact that it could seriously harm his reputation, ruin his business, or even kill him or others in the process. All this just obtain some respect from him in the community. They are selfish and careless with respect others.
