Rival "groups" versus the "G" world

Last week, the Patriot referred to rival "groups" as a possible source of the tension that ended a 14 year old child's life. I guess "gang" can't be used. Well, if we can't even name the problem, we cannot solve it.

Other papers and other cities are more forthcoming, despite possible impact on "tourism." Take a look at this approach:

Gangs...a place where kids feel like they belong, a place where they feel safe and protected? Used to be kids got that belonging and safety from their parents at home. Now they roam the streets looking for it. And finding a poor substitute! Why doesn't Mayor Reed establish Harrisburg as a "family friendly" city, rather than a "party friendly" city? Where are the activities for kids?

To be fair, "gang" has a connotation of some level of hierarchy and organization to it, which I have heard no idication of in this instance.
