They can use that capacity to gain access to the resources of the local government and maximize the power network owned. The main theory is used bossism theory of John T. Sidel and group violence written by Masaaki and Rozaki. A case study approach and qualitative analysis and typology were chosen as a way to draw up a written interpretation of the data, interview and observation.
