I have chosen this scene becaouse it shows us how everyday life is on the streets of five points from death to poverty and danger at all times even the children are out of control. at the begging Also this was a good way to introduce JennyEverdeane (Cameron Diaz) at the begging signaling that she is going to play an important role in the movie. In this scene Johnny (Henry Thomas) explains and shows Amsterdam (Leonardo DiCaprio)  the different gangs that are around from new ones to old ones and what their characteristics are from the way they start problems and steal and kill.

Amsterdam then questioned Johnny about what had happened to the gang his father was in. Johnny then responds to Amsterdam you dont say that name dyed with you they have been outlawed and that Amsterdam had heard from a gang that the Natives an American gang that the dead rabits lost to celebrate their victory every year and johnny responds with yes but youd have to be invited in order to go.
