Members from other cities come, do a 'job' and then leave town-their identity or part in the crime remains a mystery.
I love how they focus on Asian gangs as being third world and 'street' gangs.
The doctor you go to may be a lifetime member of the Chinese mafia and you wouldn't know it. Becuz they syndicate helps with school and if ever a favor is asked of them years later, they are obliged.
I believe the country has many such people in various places with such lifetime hidden allegiances. It would explain alot of gs behaviors- that people.have quiet loyalties that matter.first and foremost to them.
It's an example of a set up that would make.gs work as TIs experience it.
