The reasons are as varied as the posts here, which include revenue, racism, and many many other issues. To anyone who says racism doesn't play into
it, explain the KKK. I personally -know- alot of GDs (Ganster Disciples), Blood, Crips, Vatos Locos, Hell's Angels, Banditos. Not all gangs are bad,
but the vast majority are.
There are many reasons we can't just 'round em all up'. For one, you have to actually -catch- them commiting a crime. Simply claiming membership in
a gang isn't enough to arrest people for. To the member who said gangbangers are cowards; i've seen many who, infact, aren't.
Either way, Gangs have existed for as long as Civilization has, in my opinion; as they are nothing more than groups with symbols/colors. The police
are a gang. It will exist so long as Civilization as we know it exists. Simple facts of life.
