"Discipline"? "Members"? What kind of "community" are you talking about?

The problems mentioned are real, and they happen in *society,* not in "communities." That's where we have to fix them. And it's not because some groups are being ghettoized out of society that it's a good idea for them to develop their own (illegitimate, not to mention badly amateurish) notion of justice.
