Provides that a person commits the offense when he or she is a streetgang member or is in the company of or acting in concert with a streetgang member and knowingly loiters in a public place under any of the following circumstances: (1) with intent to publicize a criminal streetgang's dominance over certain territory in order to intimidate non-members of the streetgang from entering, remaining in, or using the public place or adjacent area; or (2) with the intent to conceal ongoing commerce in illegal drugs or other unlawful activity. Provides that nothing in this provision shall be construed in any way to limit the power or right of a law enforcement officer to make any investigation, detention, or arrest as the law enforcement officer would be permitted to make in absence of this provision.
