  • U.S. gang membership may be higher than reported

    http://tinyurl.com/bhvfo

    The surprising lack of cooperation by police agencies means the Justice Department's estimate of more than 700,000 gang members nationwide could be too low by at least 200,000, said Patrick Word, vice chairman of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Gang Investigators Network, a group that helps collect data for the Justice Department

    Yea and in my county the interagency gang team lost the support of multiple municipalities that feel the gang problem isn't severe enough to devote officers full time to it. Talk about an ostrich putting it's head in the sand. Why is it that some cities are so freaking stupid about saving a dime in the short run, which will end up hurting them so much in the long run.

      In Metro Atlanta The Gang Problem Has Gotten Completely Out Of Hand . Almost All California Hispanic Based Gangs Have Taken Root And Continue To Grow At A Alarming Rate , We Also Have Chicago Based Gangs Like Vicelords And Gangsta Deciples , And Of Course We Have L.a. Based Gangs Like Crips And Bloods . With Atlanta Becoming A Major Melting Pot This Trend Will Probably Continue As We Have Seen The Rise In Asian Gangs Here Too. Several Metro Atlanta Police Agencies Have A Gang Task Force , But Due To Agencies Not Always Being On The Same Page Gangs Are Able To Go From Community To Community Undocumented Where They Gain New Members . Hopefully We Will Find Some Way Of Ridding Are Communities Of This Scourge .

        Which is what makes the 500 they caught the other day so laughable. 26 of those were in Metro LA, honestly, you can throw a rock and hit 26 of them in Compton alone!!

            what I hate is that departments rob from patrol...example, There are Gang Strike Forces, Naroctic task forces, Fugitive gang task forces, organized crime task forces, all robbign bodies from Patrol and they are almost always going after the same people, How about combine some of these and give patrol back the bodies they need to man the watches.

                No, I'm talking about the Fed task force that took out the 500 MS13 members. How could they only find 26 in LA Our local task forces do an outstanding job when they do the mass OC/LA sweeps.

                  Yeah I just remember a few weeks back an article about LA and some other agencies going through and getting the gang members associated with the gang who has killed two LA cops, one back in the 80's I believe and the other in 2004.

                        They are El Salvadorian and very ruthless. Plug their name into Google and see what comes up.

                              33 States and climbing. Very interesting. Too bad they won't be curbed and only grow worse.
