The Outsiders

Why do the socs come after ponyboy and johnny?

Why does johnny feel that the gang cannot replace a caring family? Why might he prefer being hit by his father than be ignored by his parents?

They see Johnny and Ponyboy with "their girls", Marcia and Cherry Valance. They want revenge.
