Gang

An organized group (often rather small) of persons with a common identity. The term is usually used to describe organized crime groups, especially those run by racial and ethnic minorities. As with most organized crime groups, gangs have symbols, rituals and are generally involved in drug trafficking and other illegal activities. Gangs and other organized crime groups pose a significant and persistent problem for law enforcement. See also: RICO.
