Well, I'd like to ask two very relevant questions:
–– Where did the gangs come from?
–– Why are there gangs in the first place?

Street gangs exists for only a few reason, and those are =ALL= directly related to crime.

Without the crime to support their existence, they would all go away.

So, ask yourself: Why are those things a crime?

In regard to your question about where gangs come from, they come from just about everywhere. Washington has its own home grown gangs, then of course, there are gangs that migrated from Los Angeles and other parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Chicago, Ohio, and so on.

Gangs exist for many different reasons, e.g.,

Protection
Lack of real law enforcement in our communitities
Corruption
Profit
Simple Association, et.

A lot of gang members and organized crime families think of police agencies as gangs.

To some people, a gang is merely an extension of one's family. To others, sometimes a gang is the only real family a person might have.

Ask yourself this: If you don't pay taxes (protection money) to the city/town/state, guess what happens? The state thugs drop by to harass you, and maybe beat you up!
How is =THAT= any different from the =other= form of 'organized crime?'

Violent street gangs exist for one purpose only: To take advantage of a crime.
Create a crime, and create a gang.
Get rid of the crime, and the gang goes away.

Not having a family shouldn't ever be a reason to turn to crime.

I could understand someone looking for friendship and such, or even seeking out kindred souls.

But, when someone knowingly entertains the idea of joining a gang for the purposes of causing others misery, that is beyond the pale of willful intent.

How would you know?
And besides: There is a degree of morality that enters the question of a child looking to join a group that he probably knows has a less than sterling reputation, as opposed to say, standing up for himself and bearing his load on his own shoulders.

Highlander,
Your logic is flawed in one important aspect. You are using intelligent rational reason. Gangs will always only seem like a 'symptom' of crime until you are willing to accept the gangsters perspective. You may be able to read stitistics and articles addressing the psycholigical, social and cultural catalysts behind gangs and violence, but you have never been in a situation where all hope was lost, the reason I know this is because you plainly advertise that fact in the single dimension of your posts.
AND YOU, DON'T EVEN KNOW ME SUCH THAT YOU MIGHT REMARK AS YOU DO.

No one joins a gang for violence and crime. Full Stop. violence and crime are merely the side effects of a community without hope.

You think you hide behind your words but really, they betray everything about you, just as mine do me. The only difference is, I see where you are blind. No big deal. Thats why I am pointing out to you why you will never understand what gangs are really about.
Listen here, you arrogant little dickweed, I where of I speak because I =KNOW= some of the creeps in the local gangs.
I know how they started out, know what they thought when they were looking to join, and how they still think.

And, I'll remind you that YOU are 8000 miles away.
YOUR culture doesn't EVEN begin to match THIS culture, even though we speak the same relative language.

Get real.

Your gang tags were painted over long ago!

And =YOU= are making excuses for people who have made more than their share of excuses for themselves.

From the American Heritage Dictionary:

To perceive incorrectly; misunderstand.
mis.per·cep.tion
n.

So, your vocabulary, right along with you intellectual development is lacking.

You must be a democrat, dumbass. Let me explain something to you, while misperceive, misperceived, misperceiving, and mispereives, are all nice words and probably come close to conveying the idea you were trying to express, MISPERCEPTION is not a word!! what you are trying to say is misconception. But good try. you silly twat.
According to =BOTH= the OED and AHD, it =IS= a word, and has been for quite some time.
Come back when you can =effectively= communicate in the ENGLISH language, using words and phrases which succinctly convey your thoughts.
