"As gangs do to other groups today. Should we find every gang member whether or not they just joined their group and charge them with every crime committed by other group members whether or not they were involved?"
We already do, its called RICO and its been around for almost 30 years.
That's the big government 'conservative' spirit!!!
Not surprisingly, RICO ultimately came to be the ultimate weapon that federal prosecutors could use against individuals and business owners who decidedly were not part of "organized crime," but the provisions of the law are so powerful that a RICO indictment almost guarantees a conviction of some sort. (And, surprise, surprise, the ACLU itself dropped its official aversion to RICO after pro-abortion groups successfully used the civil portion of RICO to win huge monetary judgments from groups protesting abortion.)
But there are plenty of documented incidents where RICO has been misused and not under the original intent. But we all know 'conservatives' don't care
