  • Are you afraid of gangs?

    I was on youtube one day watching videos about the history of gangs. It really gave me the heebie jeebies especially prison gangs like the aryan brotherhood, black guerilla family, etc. I have a question to LEOs out there when you're on the streets and dealing with gangs are you ever afraid?

    The police are better trained, better armed, better funded and better staffed than any street gang. If you leverage these factors against a ragtag group of 13-19 year olds there's not a lot to worry about.

      Of course, we are human too. But the difference is that we as LEOs have to work through our fear and not let the fight or flight syndrome take over. Its not that we dont get scared, its that we work through our fear and use our fear to our advantage. pysiologically speaking when somebody is scared the body reacts to put more energy to the sympathetic nervous system and reduces the energy it sends to the parasympathetic nervous system. So basically the more hieghtened the sympathetic nervous system the more "heightened" your senses will be. Basically your body turns off processes that it doesnt need to use and devotes more energy to the bodily processes you will need. So with all that being said it is sometimes advantagous for us to get scared.
      But seriously we are all super men and women and dont get scared at anything

        Of course we need to be very cautious with gangs and their members. Fear is a part of human nature and LEO's are not immune to it. It is a healthy emotion, and one that we can feed off of to channel our energies and use to our advantage.

        As Geordi mentions, our training and experience helps to lessen the emotion, or more correctly channel it. Anyone who says they have no fear is either a liar, an idiot, or mentally disturbed. Or perhaps any combination of the above.

            I am afraid of large gangs of big foots, but I live in the midwest, so i don't think I'll have to deal with them anytime soon. I have a friend who works in Idaho, he says they run rampant out there, robbing liquor stores and such. Does that count?

                Gangs are an increasing concern for Law Enforcement in many areas. Concern does NOT equal fear. Concern drives effective strategy and tactics for Police agencies in combatting gang activity. I believe the gangs in general, are far more afraid of us.

                    I agree. It can be a healthy emotion and very unhealthy if you ignore it. Additionally, we can usually outnumber them in a matter of minutes should the need arise. When we decide to contact a gang, we usually go in 4-5 deep to begin with.

                          gangs always hang out in large numbers. It's like they're afraid something might happen to them if they're by themselves.
