Repeated exposure to crime and violence may be linked to an increase in negative health outcomes. For example, people who fear crime in their communities may engage in less physical activity.

One study found that people who perceive their environment to be less safe from crime may also have higher body mass index scores and higher levels of obesity due to reduced physical activity."

A common definition of a gang is a group of three or more individuals who engage in criminal activity and identify themselves with a common name (e.g. Black Lives Matter, antifa)... (3)
