Gang have been around for more than my time. They come into a community and they offer things the government doesn't give and makes people feel safe and protected. They recruit members of that community and it spirals out from there. Gangs are ruining society. What used to be a safe place to walk around at night with out protection has become unthinkable. Gangs do not protect a community but threatens the safety one. It is a crime, its a serious crime.
