gangs, drugs and cops

I'm in BC where gang activity is rather high. Not knowing wtf to do about it, the kids in some schools are asking police to help. And of course, the police cannot. They don't have the resources to be security guards in high schools.

So what do we do about gangs? Legalize drugs, for starters. Take the gangs out of the business.

After that? I have an idea, but I've not thought through the consequences. Help from the readership would be appreciated. What if we called gangs "terrorist groups"? Would that give the police more teeth for dealing with them? Or do they have plenty of power that is already being misused? Yay or nay. You tell me.
