your parents probably don'[t want you to get involved where you are now, because they're afraid for your safety and that of the rest of your family and friends. I would still step in and intervene if you know something is going down. How could you live with yourself if you didn't? You'd always feel sad and regret it. Sometimes you have to put yourself on the line, for others. It's the right thing to do.
They just afraid something bad may happen to you. I say keep helping your friends, but always be careful. Show your parents that you can take care of yourself.
that is a hard one I grew up in a rough place also and I have been in the same situatins i still always jumped in and help out even if told not to you have it in you to help you just can't stand by and watch it happen make a call to police anyomus just say someone needs help and hang up
Screw your parents. You are always, always allowed to call for help.
Where the hell is that neighborhood? Get Out Now!!!
Just turn away, you'll get new friends, and your parents just want to protect you.
