Gangs, the Threat the Democrats Don't Want You to Know - Part 1 [F1 605]

Updated on June 23, 2019

Part 1 gets the players and information in play

This is admittedly going to be boring, but hang in there as this is the foundation to the information on the GANG problems in the US, and how and who is reporting it.

The GNIC (Gang National Intelligence Center) gathers and reports gang information from law enforcement across the country.

This is like one of those horse racing programs that tells you all about the horse race and the horse. It is not a exciting as that because you can't or shouldn't bet on them:)

This is a multiple part series and that just prolongs the agony of reading and understanding the details and implications of them. Yet, like a college text book, you get out of it what you put into it.

It reminds me of a text book on industrial psychology that I was required to read. This was a three inch thick book with very small font, and the footnotes were even smaller.

There were very little in the way of punctuation, maybe two per page. I would have to read this book after working all day, and that may have contributed to my falling asleep somewhere on a single page. I would then use the old follow the finger down the page. And many times, I just focused on my finger instead of the words. I think that induced a hypnotic sleep. Anyway, I didn't give up, probably because there might be a test on it. In my defense, it was boring, complicated and used a lot of big words to say a few things.

My point is that you may consider this more than 10,000 word gang series like that Industrial Psychology book. I hope not, and I would appreciate any help in make it more readable.

Guns and Gangs make a terrifying pair!

Gangs and the NGIC threat assessment

The democrats and their mutations including progressives, liberals, and the infamous Anti Trumper, Anti American, and pro foreigner keep on with their goal of making anyone that can cross the US border illegally a pseudo American Citizen and giving them a path to be an American Citizen they ignore America, Americans and Legal immigrants.

  • One of the things that they ignore are the gangs that come with these future democrat voters are the gangs.

What is the US Government doing about the Gang Problem?

The US government has been trying to deal with the gang problem in the US, and in 2005 Congress established the National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC). So while we don’t see the democrats of today giving any time on gangs, they had to be aware of it in 2005.

Where does the NGIC fit into the gang problem?

The NGIC provides information to local and state law enforcement. This information is the analysis of law enforcement Federal, State and local on criminal activity focusing on migration and growth of gang associations. Focusing on significant threats to communities throughout the US by these gangs.

What agencies are involved with the NGIC?

Several government agencies are involved in NGIC. They make the NGIC a focal point for information on gangs along with support for analytical compilation.

NGIC includes the following agencies;

  • (FBI) Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • (DEA) US Drug Enforcement Administration
  • (ATF) US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
  • (BOP) US Bureau of Prisons
  • (USMS) United States Marshals Service
  • (ICE) US Immigration and Customs Enforcement
  • (DOD) US Department of Defense (DOD),
  • (NDIC) National Drug Intelligence Center
  • (CBP) US Customs and Border Protection

This list of Federal Government Agencies should make it obvious US gangs have an across the border aspect that the democrat politicians, and those people the support these politicians don’t seem to understand the gang threat or the importance of protecting the US border, especially our open southern border.

Democrats and Gangs

The democrats of today don’t seem to think or care about the problems created by having an open border. A border that anyone can illegally cross because of the democrats not wanting to fund the border wall.

According to them, the only people illegally entering the US border are the hard working immigrants from the south of the border. They are to be trusted as if they were altar boys and given free access to American and be considered pseudo American citizens. The US government has no need because of that to vet them for criminals, or gang members, or for diseases, or their intentions once inside the country. These would all be good vetting but they are gone and protected by the democrats once they reach American soil.

After all these people are the anointed ones by the democrats to be the base of the democrat voters. That is why it is so important that these illegal aliens be given a quick and direct path to voting via America citizenship.

What are the Democrats hiding from us about the Gangs?

The democrats want the rest of us to agree with them that there is no reason for a wall, because there is no threat of anyone dangerous coming in through the open border. They don’t care about a few criminals, or even terrorists, or the contraband from the Drug Cartels. They say things like, prove that terrorists come across the border. And that is really scary because not finding terrorists coming across the border doesn’t mean that they are no terrorists. It means that we haven’t been able to detect them or capture them. Remember how 19 terrorists outsmarted the entire US National Defense on 911. The terrorist had a free run on American soil, and not a single defensive action, much less offensive action was taken against them. Why because our intelligence agencies said, we never thought the terrorists would attack us in this manner.

That is not the true story, but that story is bad enough, as it says the US National Defense system had a serious flaw. The truth is that they actually did think what the terrorists were doing on 911 was possible they were on that day using it as one of the war test scenarios.

Fortunately the US government agencies are not as convinced about at least one aspect of criminality that adversely affects the US, and its people. That is why the NGIC exists and why it shares with law enforcement assisting them with intelligence on gangs.

  • The NGIC provides Web Based tools to provide an Information System to research gang related intelligence and tools to share it with state, local and federal law enforcement.
  • The NGIC system has tools to compile new data on gangs, and research gang threat assessments, as well as experts on national subject matter. There is also an intelligence library and an encyclopedia of gangs, their sign, symbol and tattoos.

The NGIC identifies several Types of Gangs.

  • Street Gang
  • Prison Gang
  • Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs
  • Once Percenter Gangs
  • Neighborhood/Local Neighborhood or Local street gangs

The following are descriptions of gang types

Street Gangs

These are criminal organizations are operating throughout the United States formed on the street

Prison gangs

Criminal organizations originating within the penal system and operating within correctional facilities throughout the US, and with released members that may be operating on the street. These gangs are also self-perpetuating criminal entities that can continue their criminal operations outside the confines of the penal system.

Outlaw Motorcycle (OMGs)

They are organizations whose members use their motorcycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprises. While some law enforcement agencies treat only One Percenters as OMGs, For assessment purpose the NGIC, covers all OMG criminal organizations, including OMG support and puppet clubs.

One Percenter


ATF (Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Agency) defines One Percenters as any group of motorcyclists who have voluntarily made a commitment to band together to abide by their organization’s rules enforced by violence and who engage in activities that bring them and their club into repeated and serious conflict with society and the law. The group must have three or more persons with a common interest or activity with a pattern of delinquent or criminal conduct.uent conduct. It is estimated that in the US there 300 One Percenter OMGs by the ATF.

Neighborhood/Local Neighborhood or Local street gangs

These gangs are confined to specific neighborhoods and jurisdictions and often imitate larger, more powerful national gangs. Drug distribution and drug sales are their purpose for many neighborhood gangs.

What do the Democrats have to say about gangs, nothing really

So when the democrats and their base keep saying no terrorists come across the US border, so we don’t need a wall for that reason. And the only reason that the republicans want a wall is to keep out illegal aliens. That is certainly one reason but that is not the most significant reason to build a wall. The wall is needed to prevent surprise attacks to limit or stop criminals and criminal activity from being so easily brought into the US>

To assist in the sharing of gang intelligence with law enforcement, the NGIC has established NGIC Online, an information system comprised of a set of web-based tools designed for researching gang-related intelligence and sharing of information with federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement partners.

  • The system’s Request for Information (RFI) portal encourages users to contribute new data as well as conduct gang research through custom threat assessments and/or liaison with NGIC’s network of national subject matter experts.
  • NGIC Online functions include RFI submissions and responses; Gang Encyclopedia WIKI; General Intelligence Library; and a Signs, Symbols, and Tattoos (SST) database with user submissions.

      Sorry again, It seems that I don't get notifications on some of my own hubs.

      "You are very welcome, Brad. I do not know why your article is not featured. I have never understood how HubPages work. There never has been much rhyme or reason to it at least to my mind. I never worry about it because I just enjoy thinking about the issues and getting them out there."

      B:

      One of the problems when your hub doesn't get featured, it also doesn't have the visibility for others to see it. They have to know to look for it.

      -----------------------------------------

      One of my Hubs is censored for advertising because I used the "N" word in it. I was simply writing about Paula Deen's sworn testimony in a civil case. I was simply stating verbatim what was said. It strikes me then that they simply have some sort of computer program that goes through these Hubs and come out with some algorithm or algorithms that make these decisions. Who knows? I guess one must play their games to get traffic.

      B:

      And that is the problem, algorithms are made to look for and deal with things. And I submit that the 'N' word is not the only thing it looks for. I have done several hubs on hubber scores and writing hubs. How is it possible to get scores in the 90s and even a 100 without writing a hub in at least 8 weeks. This is data from hp itself. Why then is it still called hubpages if you don't have to write hubs?

      --------------------------------------

      Personally, I don't care and write as I wish. I do not wish to debate you much in your comments section regarding the gang issue. We have done so prodigiously in my other Hubs.

      B:

      Again the issue is visibility and the chances of being viewed without being featured is pretty low.

      ----------------------------

      I certainly agree that the gangs problem is a growing one. It has always been here going back to the 19th century. You have outlined the problem very well. I simply feel that your emphasis on the immigration issue as a major driver of this problem is either wrong or not nearly as extensive as you believe. Either way, you are right, that we need more resources directed at this problem."

      B:

      When you look at the entire series, currently it is 6 parts, you will see how the US border wall versus the open border is part of their access. It is not about immigration, it is about the ability to stop criminals and terrorists getting easy access.

      The front door in your home is no different that the US border wall. It allows you to let in whom you choose to enter, and it gives you a means to keep out the criminals, and others that you don't want to get in.

      Immigration is a separate issue, and it should be made through the ports of entry into the country. At the same time, do you think it is fair for all the immigrants that go through the ports of entry that people can come in without any of the costs, paperwork and vetting just because they can easily cross the border.

      The North Eastern part of Mexico is owned by the drug cartel. And they don't limit their criminal activity to drugs. They are also heavily involved in human trafficking. Now they are the ones that are really taking advantage of people and children that try to get into the country illegally.

      Not having the wall allows them to keep that business very robust, and if people only keep focusing on the wall for illegal alien workers, they will never support having the US fight it.

      Yes we have had the gang problems for a long time, but like the terrorists these gangs are proactive, while are defenses are reactive. And they have embedded themselves into the government, law enforcement and other position that enable them to know what we are doing against them.

      Because we are always reactive rather than pro active, this allows the criminals to be one step ahead of us. Don't you think that the terrorists have a new move to replace the shoe bomb for example. While we are looking for past methods, they are developing new ones.

      Thanks

      Sorry, but I didn't see your comment. Thanks for reading it and commenting on it.

      ------------------------

      You say

      "Of course, your opening paragraph had to be an attack on myself and others of those labels you love to throw around. I guess you had to scratch that itch.

      B:

      What did I say there that wasn't true? When did anyone on the left shed any light on the gang problem. After president Trump made the gang MS 13 an issue, Nancy Pelosi came on in defense of MS 13 saying they were just normal everyday children. And yet, their gang motto is Rape, Control, and Kill?

      As for the different labels for the left, they are real and not just name calling. The left is fractured as they move as you know to a further left and socialism. There is a distinct difference between a liberal and an anti Trumper wouldn't you agree?

      -------------------------------------

      " I believe the Democrats are not exasperating this problem as you seem to be implying.

      B:

      What I was implying is that they are not telling the people about the gang problem. And with Nancy Pelosi's statement on MS 13, I will let you categorize it.

      --------------------------------------

      Yes, they are trying to solve the immigration problem but they can work on other problems at the same time.

      B:

      Yes the democrats can work on other problems at the same time. Can you tell me what those other problems are and is the gang problem one of them?

      -------------------------------------

      I also know you feel that undocumented immigrants are a large cause of this problem as you argued in my other Hubs. They are not.

      B:

      I didn't just say that, I gave reasons and examples why it is true?

      MS13 is a problem in the US, did the open border or the democrat championing illegal aliens contribute to them being here or not?

      ------------------------------------

      Some do come, but as you enumerated, there are many different gangs and they are only a small part of this problem.

      B:

      I never implied they were a small part of the problem. This is a muli part series, and it already has 6 parts, with more to come.

      -------------------------------------

      It is a tenacious problem that both Democrats and Republicans have tried to battle and have not yet won. "

      B:

      Actually neither party has done much in this battle of the gangs. But, the republicans at least are for the wall. And strangely before Trump was in the presidential race, presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were for the wall.

      ------------------------

      Howard

      Thanks for your comment and liking most of the article. This gives me a better feel for your views and positions. It makes me believe I was wrong about you notwithstanding our political differences.

      You judged the content of my article and only made a simple comment on my democrat inference.

      If you and the left could do the same with president Trump that would be a big step in bringing back the real left that is gone today. As I mentioned Democrats and Republicans not too long ago both supported the border wall.

      Many people don't agree with my commenting format. But I copy verbatim what they say, and then comment on it. That way both sides are clear, and the context is there to bring the point of each side.

      This also allows me to stick to the point the other side is trying to make, and not make deflections and not answering them.

      I want to discuss the contents of articles, as you did here as the main focus. And I try to give my view point when there is a difference with the article or comment from another person.

      Thanks Howard

      i wonder why hubpages won't feature this article. Is it because they are biased to the left, and this article makes the left look bad?

      Hello Brad. I wondered why I had not heard from you for almost a whole day. I commend you on a comprehensive look at the American government's agencies that watch and fight the gang problem. Of course, your opening paragraph had to be an attack on myself and others of those labels you love to throw around. I guess you had to scratch that itch. Still, this was a fine Hub examining this problem. I believe the Democrats are not exasperating this problem as you seem to be implying. Yes, they are trying to solve the immigration problem but they can work on other problems at the same time. I also know you feel that undocumented immigrants are a large cause of this problem as you argued in my other Hubs. They are not. Some do come, but as you enumerated, there are many different gangs and they are only a small part of this problem. It is a tenacious problem that both Democrats and Republicans have tried to battle and have not yet won. Congratulations on a fine Hub.
