Setting aside all the collateral damage of gang violence, all the bystanders that are wounded, maimed, or killed by stray bullets, and setting aside the terrorization of black communities by gangs, the shakedowns and extortion, the assaults, all the violence and intimidation that gangs inflict on these communities, most of the people you're calling "gangsters" are children who have been manipulated into the life and when they get killed or incarcerated it has a devastating impact on their families and the wider community.
By contrast, police violence affects the entire black population, and is extremely disproportionate.
Police violence is a problem but it's not a racial problem and by every study and statistic we have it pales in comparison to gang violence within the black community.
