You know the leaders are present.........just knowing they front or lead a criminal rganization is grounds to arrest them under RICO statutes.....do so.....then watch the other maggots kill each other trying to fill the vaccum left by the leaders being gone......done enough times, it'd help whittle the problem down. Funny, RICO only seems to be used primarily against "white" gangsters......race issue perhaps?
Los Angeles County is considered the Gang capital of America, with an estimated 120,000 (41,000 in the City) gang members although Chicago actually has a higher rate of gang membership per capita than Los Angeles. Also, the state of Illinois has a higher rate of gang membership (8-11 gang members per 1,000 population) than California (5-7 gang members per 1,000 population). There were at least 30,000 gangs and 800,000 gang members active across the USA in 2007. About 900,000 gang members lived "within local communities across the country," and about 147,000 were in U.S. prisons or jails in 2009. By 1999, Hispanics accounted for 47% of all gang members, Blacks 31%, Whites 13%, and Asians 6%.
Relatives say the homeowner bought a gun just a few months after an even more brazen robbery last November, where the crooks stole $100.
The Chicago Police Department, also known as the CPD, is the principal law enforcement agency of the City of Chicago, Illinois, in the United States, under the jurisdiction of the city mayor. It is the largest police department in the Midwest and the second largest local law enforcement agency in the United States with over 13,400 sworn officers and over 1,850 other employees. Dating back to 1837, the Chicago Police Department is one of the oldest modern police forces in the world.

This reminds me of Hill Street Blues. The opening sequence of the series was filmed in Chicago...... Season 1 Episode 2 contained a gang summit that was convened by Captain Furillo in order to secure the peace before the President of the United States came to town to visit the area.....Below is the link to Hulu. Check it out at out 35:08 into the show.
"How ya doin Frankie? What a party ya got here Frankie!"....lol.

Here are some basic traits these alliances have in common.
Mentality and Philosophy
The "All for One, One for All" philosophy poses a significant threat; members demand participation in assaultive behavior by all members who are present.
The one-on-one fight of the past now becomes a full disturbance.
"Code of Conduct" terminologies include:
"Folk before family."
"I will not let my brother fall to a knee."
"All is All" and "All is Well" (People)
"All is One." (Folk)
"I'm tired of people making excuses for their negative actions. They made all kinds of excuses, talking about they don't have jobs, but does that give you an excuse to kill, steal and destroy?" she said.
That verb, "negotiate," smacks of appeasement. Weis says that's not what occurred: At a Saturday news conference, he described a scene in which gang leaders were warned that investigators will "come down with every bit of firepower we have, every prosecutive trick we know." In his telling, the feds promised to use racketeering and other statutes to go after houses and other assets owned by gang leaders or members of their families.
