    I think the main root of the problem has to do with the polynesian culture. Not that there is anything wrong with the polynesian culture- I am a polynesian myself- it is just that raising kids in the islands and raising kids in the rest of the world are two very different things. In the islands, parents do not have to be active forces in the child's life; because of the loving and supporting community; however, when polynesian parents immigrate to the US they bring with them the same method of raising children. Thus, problems with gangs emerge. Gangs are formed for companionship, attention, money, and many other things. This is my opinion.

    What does the LDS have to do with Polynesian Migrating to Utah. The LDS did not bring the Polynesians to Utah they migrated here on there own just like Christopher Colombus decided to bring the white man to the US where we all know the Indians own this land.

    The LDS Church? Good grief, you people. Is there any bad thing in the world we can't blame on the LDS Church, Mr. Goddard? Somebody needs to get outside of Utah a bit more often.

    We can thank the LDS Church for bringing them over. An added consequence it the hardship it places on the "all you can eat" places like chuck a rama.

    I am not racist at all, I am far from it. But, as statistics go, Utah has the highest population of Pacific Islanders outside of the islands themselves. This would explain a higher instance of Tongan/polynesian gangs here in Utah. It's not the race itself that is the problem, it is our tolerance of them. For example, in places in the south, there are white supremasist gangs who are just as violent as any city gang, so are all white people like that? I know I'm not. If this country had more opportunities for minorities, it would be a different story. Go Obama!

    Most of the Polynesians I knew in California were law-abiding, and I know most are law abiding in Utah as well. Why is there this Polynesian gang element in Utah?

    like the streets shall run with blood...but good work, law enforcement..now who else is in the hood as they seem to migrate here from other cities set up shop and do stupid things like rob small stores ..taking basically from the poor as those type of jobs are getting more dangerous and don't pay alot. now they go into the prison system to push themselves on the weak for a long long time. just a flash in the pan out here though.
