Sixty gangs with about 600 factions__somewhere between 68,000 and 100,000 total membership.<quoted text> Works for me. Put some accountability back into education. Get the government, all three, out of it. Make teachers and schools suffer the consequences of failing their students. Oh by the way there is estimated to be up to 500 different gangs in the Chicago region.
That's a lot of gangs/members, more than any any US city except Los Angeles.
The Sampson and Loeffler study explains, or comes close to explaining what went wrong in Chicago and why it can't be fixed.
