The Gang Series

LOAFING

“In the absence of an opportunity for active excitement, the gang resorts to loafing. The loafing gang is always “waiting for something to turn up” and spends its time recounting its adventures, rag-chewing, telling dirty stories, indulging in low horseplay, or annoying passersby. It is likely at any moment to cease its loafing role, however, and embark on some enterprise if opportunity arises.”

 

Excerpt from Frederic M. Thrasher’s 1927 publication of The Gang: A Study of 1,313 Gangs in Chicago
