In the chapter, Sante (1991) believed gangs emerged in rapidly growing cities out of the conditions created by multiple waves of immigration and urban overcrowding (1). The book suggest that street gangs emerged from conditions of social disorganization, overwhelming housing, and welfare capacities of the Northwest (2). Government corruptions such as that of the Civil war clause gave rise to gang riots resulting in the deaths of over 15 black men and the disappearance of over 50 more (4). Other explanations given were: marginalization, youth conflict, and defiance (6). Still the book offers more examples like that of racial unity and empowerment, as well as gangs provided lower income tenants protection and financial resources they otherwise
The commotion alerted nearby citizens who flocked to the scene, and the built up tensions of many years of discrimination escalated into a riot. It took a combined effort of almost seventeen thousand law enforcement officers to be suppressed (Sugrue 259). Conflict flared throughout the city streets during the summer of 1967 as a Detroit was once again torn by a period of cataclysmic violence (Sugrue 260). Detroit has really fully recovered from the events of the past, evident through ongoing economic struggles and recently a declaration of bankruptcy, and creates a controversial situation in regards to the origins of this urban crisis.

Since the construction of the levees
Public housing often brings to mind images of urban decay, poverty, and serious crime. Indeed, rates of violent crime are generally higher in public housing sites than at other inner-city locations (Brill and Associates 1977; Dunworth and Saiger 1993; Roncek, Bell, and Francik 1981; also see DeFrances and Smith 1994). Concerns about crime in public housing have dominated public policy agendas for many years and have spawned numerous crime control and prevention programs. Many of these programs date back to the 1960s, when housing administrators realized that high-rise public housing developments built in the late 1950s were a security disaster (Annan and Skogan 1993). Since that time, public housing authorities have experimented with CPTED
