Younger boys and girls in societies are engaged in street crimes or gangs according to recent studies. However, many of these studies hold a generalized view of street gangs instead of focusing on the specific cultures and societies that actually lead to these crimes. Ethnographical research is the best method applied to study street gangs and make conclusions based on qualitative data2. This paper will talk about the ethnographic method, the way it is used for street crimes and gangs, and the strengths and limitations associated with this research method.
