  Section  1.  Legislative  findings and purpose. The legislature hereby
finds that New York laws are insufficiently targeted to the  prosecution
of criminal street gangs and the protection of public order and individ-

activities  specifically  designed  to  prevent  the  growth of criminal
street gangs, facilitate prosecution and punishment of members of crimi-

state to be secure and protected from fear, intimidation,  and  physical
harm.
  The legislature therefore finds and declares that it is in every sense
in  the  public  interest  to  establish a comprehensive approach to the
protection of public order and individual safety against criminal street
