DON'T LET THE STATISTICS MISLEAD YOU.  GANG VIOLENCE IS NOT LIMITED TO CALIFORNIA AND/OR BIG URBAN AREAS.  THAT MAY HAVE BEEN TRUE A WHILE AGO BUT IT IS NO LONGER THE CASE TODAY - Bob Filner

A TEAM IS WHERE A BOY CAN PROVE HIS COURAGE. A GANG IS WHERE A COWARD GOES TO HIDE - Micky Mantle


I love my Kindle Fire.  I am so thankful to the family for introducing me to Kindle, Mark and Kimberly replacing the last one I lost, and Mark for handling my Kindle account.  Thank you!

I like different books but read a lot of mystery and spy novels.  In the book on the left, which I am currently reading, I was made aware of the MS-13 gang and decided to do some research on "gangs".  What I found is sobering!  While I do not actually see gang violence in the small town where I live, it is here.

Regardless of where you live, gangs effect your life in many ways and are a danger to your way of life.

IN FACT, STREET GANGS ARE THE PRIMARY DISTRIBUTOR OF ILLEGAL DRUGS IN THE UNITED STATES - Dave Reichert


There is a NATIONAL GANG INTELLIGENCE CENTER formed by the FBI.  In 1999 Hispanic accounted for 47% of all U.S. gangs, African Americans 34%, whites 13% and Asian 6%.  Your children and grand children probably see more gang activity than you do.

IN LOS ANGELES, THE GANG CAPITOL OF THE WORLD, WE HAVE 1,100 GANGS AND 120,000 GANG MEMBERS. IT IS A DAUNTING, COMPLEX DILEMMA - Greg Boyle


GANG MEMBER IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT
MARA SALVATRUCHA, known as MS-13, as described in the book, is the most dangerous gang in America.  It is also located in Canada and Central America.  In addition to all other crimes, it is into contract killing, which the book is involved in defending against.  It is an interesting book.


I HAVE NEVER SEEN A HOPEFUL PERSON JOIN A GANG - Greg Boyle


HISPANIC GANGS - Presidential candidate Trump is right, there has been a large increase in illegal immigration of gang members.  This gang is involved in drug, murder, robberies, and other organized crime activity.  ICE has arrested 7,655 gang members.  LATIN KINGS is the largest Hispanic gang.


ALL CRIMINALS TURN PREACHERS UNDER THE GALLOWS - Proverb

Black gangs, the BLOODS and the CRIPS were formed in Los Angeles in 1970.  Normally enemies, they joined sides to combat the police in the recent Baltimore riots.  They were successful in making a bad situation worse.


CRIME EXPANDS ACCORDING TO OUR WILLINGNESS TO PUT UP WITH IT


MOTOR CYCLE GANGS - there is a significant population of motor cycle gangs using the "club" for a criminal activity.  The Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm (ATF) estimates that there are some 300 such clubs in America.



ONE WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT CRIME DOES NOT PAY IS TO LET THE GOVERNMENT RUN IT - Ronald Reagan

There are PRISON GANGS, and ORGANIZED CRIME GANGS, and JUVENILE GANGS.  They are in every neighborhood in America, although you may not see them.  They will sell drugs to your children, and cause problems in the schools.  The range of illegal acts include weapons, human trafficking, art theft, robbery, home break ins, copyright infringement, counterfeiting, money laundering, extortion and terrorism.

BE AWARE AND TAKE CARE

WHERE IS THE LONE RANGER WHEN WE NEED HIM?


MAY GOD KEEP YOU AND YOURS SAFE


GOD BLESS AMERICA
