The US Border Fence! :)

Current Gang-Related Trends and Crime

Part 3 NGIC

Gangs are complex rather that simple and they are layered.

Gangs may on the surface just to be simple but as they evolve they become complex. This complexity involves layers of criminality, and the layers make it difficult for law enforcement to track them and try to take them down.

Recruiting New Members

Throughout the nation wide communities the gangs expand getting new members. Gangs try to keep ahead of law enforcement while they control their illegal operations and control their territory through more intense intimidation and violence.

Gang Adaptation and Expansion

Gangs go beyond being drug distributors as they are more adaptable, influential and organized in large scale drug trafficking. To recruit new members they move to rural and suburban communities expanding their territories of drug distribution.

Gang Migration

Gang members are migrating from urban areas to suburban and rural communities to recruit new members,

This is part of their efforts to expand their drug distribution territories, forming new alliances, and collaborating with rival gangs as well as with criminal organizations for profit and influence.

On the rise are Local neighborhoods, hybrid and female gang members.

Prison Gang Members

Gang members that are in prison, can exert control over

  • Many street gang members,
  • They will often engage in violence and crime when they return to their home community. Once there they can have adverse and lasting neighborhood impact. Such as, increases in violence, crime, and drug trafficking.

Gang Membership and Expansion

  • 33,000 criminally active Gangs active in all 50 states, DC and Puerto Rico with a total of 1.4 million active from the street gangs, OMG, and prison gang members,
  • A 40% increase from 2009 that estimated 1 million gang members.
  • These figures from the NGIC make this increase from
  • 1. Improvements in reporting increases in gang membership primarily to improved reporting,
  • 2. More aggressive Gang recruitment efforts
  • 3. New Gangs being formed.
  • 4. Drug trafficking new opportunities,
  • 5. Collaboration with rival gangs
  • 6. Collaboration with (DTOs) drug trafficking organizations.
  • 7. Law enforcement attribute the increase in gang membership in their region to
  • A. Gangster rap culture,
  • B: Facilitation of communication and recruitment through the Internet and social media,
  • 8. Proliferation of generational gang members,
  • 9. Shortage of resources to combat gangs.

In the past two years from 2009 to 2011 that gang related increases in criminal gang related activity there have been reported from more than half of NGIC law enforcement partners. The greatest threat continues to be from Neighborhood-based gangs in most jurisdictions nationwide.

  • The most significant increase in gang membership according to NGIC and NDIC data, since 2009, was in the Northeast and Southeast regions, although the West and North Central regions—particularly Arizona, California, and Illinois—boast the highest number of gang members. Arizona and California are interesting because they are US southern Border States. Do you see any connection with the unprotected US southern Border?
  • Then there is the infamous violent and deadly gangs,Sureño gangs, including Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), 18th Street, and Florencia 13,. These gangs were mentioned by president Trump in 20018. They were also glorified by democrat speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi as just being normal immigrants, and doing those things that normal law abiding immigrants do in America. However these gangs are expanding faster than other national-level gangs, both in membership and geographically. There are reports of increases of Sureño migration into their region over the past three years in twenty states and the District of Columbia.
  • California has experienced a substantial migration of Sureño gangs into northern California and neighboring states, such as Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon. Is this a problem caused by the open US southern borders? Yes, because you can’t just ignore the fact that these gang members illegally crossed the unprotected US southern border. And disbursing throughout Northern CA and nearby states makes it more difficult for law enforcement federal, state and local. Going to the less populated areas allows them to outnumber the police, and ICE.
  • Law enforcement reporting indicates a significant increase in OMGs in a number of jurisdictions, with approximately 44,000 members nationwide comprising approximately 3,000 gangs.c Jurisdictions in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia are experiencing the most significant increase in OMGs, increasing the potential for gang-related turf wars with other local OMGs. The Wheels of Soul (WOS), Mongols, Outlaws, Pagans and Vagos have expanded in several states.

  • Nevada, New Mexico,

Note: Look at how many gangs there are in California. Is it a coincidence that California is so popular with these gangs? It shouldn’t be as California is the one that protects the US Border from having a Wall. California is also a sanctuary state protecting even Convicted Illegal Aliens who have committed felonies in California. And when they come out of prison, California protects them from being deported which federal law. California claims that they are not violating federal law, they are saying that they are not obligated to do the work of ICE.

The flaw in that ideology is that California does owe a duty to its citizens that they will protect them. Yet, how safe is it to allow Convicted Illegal Alien Felons within the state. They have already proved they are criminals, and is there any reason to allow them to commit more felonies?

In part 4 we will go to Gang-Related Violent Crime

      Thanks, but getting it out is difficult because HP refuses to feature this hub. And that is the same as shadow banding. I can publish but my audience has been artificially been a small handful, a very small handful of people.

      Thanks for being one of them.
