Mobsters started running very illegal monopolies as a living and hiring common people to do their dirty work. This lead to some very serious gang related violence. Due to all of this occurring at the same time, it changed the way in which police forces were ran. Prohibition led to widespread organized crime in the 1920s and 1930s because it opened up an illegal monopoly for gangs, initiated gang related violence, and the change it the way police forces operated, forever changing America as a result. Big time Mobsters began setting up some big ideas for big business.
A gang is a gathering of cohorting people or close companions with indistinguishable initiative and inner association that captivate either exclusively or all things considered in vicious or different types of unlawful conduct. Despite the fact that packs exist globally, there is a more amazing number in study and proficient data of groups particularly in the United States. Gangs are usually in the larger cities and urban areas in the U.S., also in smaller towns and suburbs, while a lot of the branches of the original gang are present in prisons or jails. American gangs originated in New York in the 1900’s. The gangs competed with one another for various reasons such as during the prohibition era for control over illegal drinks; they’d often beat or even murder an opposing gang member for attempting to sell or distribute illegal liquor on their “turf”.
While very interesting on how people are drawn into gangs, our government must implement more strict measurements against the clans of hooligans. The mafia first developed in the 1600s, when these citizens did not want to cooperate with authorities. (Hoover) Hispanic and African American gangs started increasing in California in 1955-1965.

For more than 100 years, Gangs have been an integral part of Urban American Society. Gangs are gradually moving their way up in the Rural and Suburban areas as well. Gangs often come into conflict with one another over there “turf” or the stealing of their drug purchasing customers, street gangs in particular. The Center for the Study and Prevention of violence reports that gang problems in the United States have escalated rapidly since the 1960’s, and continues in its growth today. Many gangs have been researched here in the United States, but one street gang in particular has earned the title given by the FBI as most dangerous street gang in the United States.
In 1820 the immigrations created a melting pot, in which resulted in larger and more dangerous groups that where harder to condense due to the disorganization of the communities. Despite the violence, the earliest gangs in New York City where not criminal groups. “They engaged in violence, but violence was a normal part of their always-contested environment; turf warfare was a condition of the neighborhood” (Sante, 1991,p. 198). Most of the members where legally employed and where butchers, bouncers, sailmakers, shipbuilders, and carpenters.
Criminal organizations have been around the streets of America for many years. Over the years, the definition of “organized crimes” has grown into multiple different meanings. According to the FBI, “organized crime as any group having some manners of a formalized structure and whose primary objective is to obtain money through illegal activities.” In my opinion, organized crimes are mostly used within dangerous gangs and they’ll eliminate anyone who stands in their way. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a very good example of transnational criminal organization, and I believe that Mara Salvatrucha is perhaps the most notorious and dangerous street gang in United States and El Salvador. I think MS-13 is disciplined enough to be considered organized crime, because this gang is responsible for both national and international criminal enterprises.
I will also explain the plan to stop the violence and how guns are wanted to be confiscated, it will also discussed how A... ... middle of paper ... ...was gotten from the U.S. Department of Justice that their is 27,000 different gangs and 788,000 active gang members in every city in America, that has a population that is larger than or equal to 250,000 reported gang action, this was founded by the office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency prevention. Boston has had plenty of deaths. Back in 2006 there was more than half of the city gun homicides had affiliated with gang related activity.

Gang violence increased as many capitalized on this new market the distribution of crack cocaine. Neighborhoods in gang infested Los Angeles areas were not immune to the violence of gangs. The Rolling 60’s were one of the first cliques or sets to take root in the Los Angeles area of South Central. Adopting their name from the numbered streets between Slauson and Florence avenues. In those days the Rolling 60’s could be vicious in the defense of their neighborhood.
Though gang life does have structure, it can easily overwhelm a new member. The thought of having seven members beat on you or having to commit a violent crime, can easily force an individual to have second thoughts. Those who do become initiated and rise through the ranks have allow the culture to consume them. The violent culture, the needs and wants of the gang surpass the needs and wants of the individual and in that they live only to serve the gang.
But despite that, reports of gang-related murders are concentrated mostly in the large cities in the United States of America. Including San Jose, where there are long standing and persistent gang problems, which mean there are a larger number of documented gang members. There are literally thousands of anti-gang advocacy groups because there are so many concerned parents. These groups support politicians who are working to try to create legislation to reduce the gang problem in the United States of America. There are a number of theories on how to combat the gang problem, but a strategy which rarely fails is to take small steps in progress and continue to move forward..
