A Worrying Phenomena

It's been touched on before, but always brings a pause to thoughts:
  • Evidence of gang culture and gang activity in the military is increasing so much an FBI report calls it "a threat to law enforcement and national security." The signs are chilling: Marines in gang attire on Paris Island; paratroopers flashing gang hand signs at a nightclub near Ft. Bragg; infantrymen showing-off gang tattoos at Ft. Hood.

    "It's obvious that many of these people do not give up their gang affiliations," said Hunter Glass, a retired police detective in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the home of Ft. Bragg and the 82nd Airborne. He monitors gang activity at the base and across the military.
Imagine some of these bangers with some basic small unit tactics and proficient with automatic weapons. It sure seems like a good thing that Daley has personally removed each and every gun from the City Streets.

I was in the Marines from 94-98 and I had a friend who was crash/fire/rescue at the air station aboard Camp Pendleton. He used to tell that there was a floor of his barracks that was "gang controlled". Crazy stuff. They don't go in for no reason, and it's not for the GI Bill either. They go in for training, they develop skills that they can bring back to the hood. There's a lot of ignorance about it as well, I've brought the subject up on message boards with veterans who've shouted me down for even hinting that there could be gang bangers in the ranks, they go on about how the guys they served with were good men. Yeah well maybe so, but that doesn't mean there aren't bad people who join up. There are a lot more sick twisted sons of guns than gang members, let me tell you.

Pretty interesting. I left the military in early 90's and saw the problem then. It was minor and realized that the militay was becoming something most of us didn't want to be part of. After the Gulf War, most key personnel left, a small percentage stayed in the reserves but literaaly 10's of thousands saw the light.

Domestic terroism should include gang bangers that are on the street and if they decide to join the militay; charge them federally and maybe they will do some serious time.
It's too bad that it came to this but can you image if we could actually target the main (so called) leaders of gang operations in the states. It would take a week, they don't live in caves, actually live in their mommas house and simply take them out.

Please no negative rants about grammar or military. Couldn't we kill every member involved in the U.S. gang hierarchy under domestic terrorism laws. Morale would increase and they'd never end up in the military. CPD has the same problem

Just a thought or two but if you keep lowering enlistment standards, who is left. Hope the rant made some sense.

Make sure you take care of yourselves, I resigned from CPD today.

If anyone thinks this country of ours will be
a world power in 50 years,
think again.

There is no border control, so every bust-out from every country on earth come here. The dumbocrats want to care for them to garner their votes when they become citizens.

Our own born citizens
are using every excuse
under the sun to stay on the government tit, for
generations. So, for this
demographic, there is no
incentive to better themselves. Thus, as the
under educated class swells, there are fewer
people able to perform
higher level jobs. This translates to lower tax
revenue, which leads to
less govt. programs.

So, with a population of
lawn care engineers,
drug dealers, gang bangers what's left?
A small segment of the
population holding a finger in the dike.

How about the "copper" from 005 who was the front seat passenger when the driver (a gang banger with an extensive rap sheet) was stopped bu TRU. Before they could drag his gang banger ass out of the car the off-duty copper (on the medical yet) from 005 (this happened in 005 also) flashes his badge and asks for "professional courtesy" Long story short a CR# was obtained for cavorting with a convicted felon and the Piece of Sh*&T "officer" was stripped.

When I was in the Army in the mid-late 1980's, it was my experience that there were gang-bangers in ranks.

However, it was usually the M/1 or F/1 that were "hootin and hollerin" crip or blood b.s. while at the enlisted clubs or nco clubs.

The hispanic enlistee's usually were former gangbangers who had "turned the corner in life" meaning they usually got married, had a child or had a close call with the law, and were looking for an escape or other option that made them change their life around. They usually made very good soldiers, because of the structured environment.

That's what I observed during my time with Uncle Sam.

the laws of our country are no longer working correctly, thanks to the liberal left-wing socialist politicians who have made their way into our political system. It is time for sweeping change. ny politician who does not follow the laws of our country should be tried and hung. Plain and simple. They are too much of a danger to us to be allowed to just disregard laws on the books that are there for the protection of the citizens of the USA. On second thought, hanging is simply not good enough for these traitors. Perhaps being drawn and quartered in public in the County Square would be more appropriate.

In L.A. There was a case where a "former Marine" planned out a hit on the cops. It was all caught on surveillance tape. He called on a fake break-in and then waited. In the tape you could see how he used his training to attack the first officer that came to the scene.
I think it was 20/20 that showed it and had a Marine trining officer view the tape and he claimed that the banger used classic urban warfare tactics to kill the officer.
He did eventually get killed by the other responding officers but he did a hell of alot of damage before he went. For those who want to know he was carrying an SKS rifle.
Look it up, it's happening people.

So your assumption or observation is that only M/1 or F/1 were involved in "Gangbanging". You couldn't see any of the "Good Ole Boys" because of the tip of your nose. I guess none of those running around in the woods "Posses" People weren't considered a threat to you or yours. Like a previous post stated...the very reason why Timothy McVeigh waltz right pass everybody without so much as a whimper. My years in I experience seeing and meeting all kinds of lunatics, gangbangers from Chicago, the east coast and the west coast. Klan & skinheads wannabes. Nationalist, centralists, survivalists....you must have served stateside in a quartermaster unit in North Dakota somewhere. I guess as a P.O. you have only seen M/1 and F/1's as criminals.

Best idea of the year! We used to sit on Vrdolyaks house, Burke gets guards, the Cardinal, Daley. Daley gave lip service to the importance of the Memorial, at the opening. So put some money where the mouth is. Assign a car! I'll bet there would be no shortage of people who want to do it. It could even be rotated from Unit to Unit, maybe on a monthly basis. All Units, not just Districts. And anyone can sit a shift, PO's, Dicks Sgts, Lts....everyfuckingbody. I am a Sgt and I will take the first shift.

No offense KatyKakes, but Chicago is a major city with major crime and a large amount of people. The gangs are huge and said to be the largest numbers in the country. Remember the saying "it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there?" Well, Chicago is slowly becoming a bad place to visit also.

I'm not a cop and have never been one, but I'm from the heart of gang territory in Chicago.

When I moved to Cleveland in the '80s, people talked about a "gang problem" here. I just sneered and said, "You don't have a 'gang problem' until you can point out the buildings owned by particular gangs." I remember the big white highrise off of the Ryan (63rd St?) owned by the Rangers or the Disciples back in the '60s. They made the owner 'an offer he couldn't refuse'.

What happened to the officer or person who monitor the cameras that are trained on the memorial? Isn't that inattention to duty? All they do is rave about the cameras but I guess no one was watching them.

KH don't even answer calls or help his fellow officers on 10-1 calls. No shit! You'll ALWAYS see him driving the other way or going down on a disturbance in a park to avoid real shit going down! Dude struts around 009 like he's the boss. He's always in the WC's office shootin' shit or rattin' guys out to the white shirts too! Heard he's related to Genie Roy? I dunno who is worse the "bald class cmdr" you're talking about or this goof? Iraq vets AND they both suffer from "Little Man Syndrome"...Crazy shit!

Yeah, gangbangers are in the military. Nothing new. You'll fight the enemy and right next to you you'll have a banger firing too. When it's over, you go home to your HOR and go your separate ways. No big thing. There's a code amongst the infantry. You fight together and you move on. Rarely if ever will you as a cop come across the same gangbanger you fought next to in combat. If you do, neither of you will try to kill each other. That's Hollyweird. It's not that way.

Best idea of the year! We used to sit on Vrdolyaks house, Burke gets guards, the Cardinal, Daley. Daley gave lip service to the importance of the Memorial, at the opening. So put some money where the mouth is. Assign a car! I'll bet there would be no shortage of people who want to do it. It could even be rotated from Unit to Unit, maybe on a monthly basis. All Units, not just Districts. And anyone can sit a shift, PO's, Dicks Sgts, Lts....everyfuckingbody. I am a Sgt and I will take the first shift.

I just returned from Iraq. Let me tell you, there are A LOT of gang bangers over there. You cannot go anywhere in the cities and not see gang grafitti. I personally observed Chicago Latin Kings and Black Gangster Disciples markings on many buildings.
The soldiers are extremely violent and show much dislike for each other. The gangs throw up signs constantly to let others know who they represent. You will see different colored do rags under helmets. I'm not just talking about Chicago gangs either. You will see gangs from all over the US. If you want to believe gangs aren't a problem in Iraq, then you MUST see for yourself. Enlist if you need proof.
I was ashamed to see the military bearing reduced to gang tattoos and teardrops. Yes, gangs are in the military and they are learning how to kill better than before. I suggest you avoid Fort Hood, TX if you are worried about gang violence. By the way, don't believe the hype from your recruiter saying we are all "green" either. Maybe so, but many choose to represent with crowns, pitchforks, swastikas and devil horns while serving. I know we had several Crips in our platoon. They even claimed they were JUST misunderstood California thugs. Yeah, I'd say this is a worrying phenomena. Let's not even touch the topic of the 82nd All-Americans......

A worrying Phenomena? Now ther's an understatement!

I read today that Franklin County, Washington (in the rural Tri-Cities area) is now majority hispanic! This is a direct result of an undefended border and no enforcement of immigration laws.

The place is going broke trying to provide schools and services for all the illegals. Gangs are now a way of life in the agricultural heartland.

If this is what's happening on the Canadian border, we may as well not discuss the Mexican border...

Maybe if you were an MP over in Iraq, then you would understand where KH is coming from? It's obvious you have no concept of duty, sacrifice or honor. The stench of your bold faced lies is attrocious. Are you jealous because he proudly displays his MP stickers on his vehicles?
You forgot to mention he is a Purple Heart recipient. That's right! He was wounded in the combat zone. Badly I might add. You're probably one of the 009 jagoffs who gave him shit for cutting his hand his first week on the street when he was searching a hype? I remember how you wouldn't let up on the "rookie" from Iraq.
Maybe if you served in Iraq like he did you wouldn't be so quick to judge him? Grow some testicles and talk to the man face to face. I highly doubt he is observed going the opposite way during a 10-1? I know him well. Sounds like you are envious of his ability to create goodwill in 009. So he has a rapport with supervisors? Does he threaten your livlihood? He is by no means a snitch and is a very dependable and hard working po. He volunteers in his free time to help other veterans. He is all heart towards his fellow man. What do you do for the vets? My guess is that you get intoxicated far too often and criticize those who are fighting and dying to protect your fourth point of contact. Hey pal, put down the liquor bottle for a second and ask yourself if you really want to be a cop? My guess is that your heart is telling you that you made a wrong decision to become law enforcement a long time ago. I say this because unless you are an ostrich with your misinformed head in the sand, then you would know that KH is one of the hardest working po's in 009. Mark my words, one day he will be a boss. Your boss. An excellent one at that...Now go finish your suds at the Redwood or whatever watering hole you favor and convince other drunken souses that you are the REAL POLICE in 009. Better yet, how about buying KH a drink (doesn't have to be alcohol) and actually taking the time out of your busy schedule to get to know him? That's what real men do this day and age. I see things are still the same in 009.

K.H. is a good officer. He was trained by Hoffenkamp and in many ways is just like him. The joke is he is Hoffenkamp's clone. You know like a Mini-Me guy. They both do traffic better than anyone. ANYONE!!! They are well-respected by coppers on our watch. Never saw him drive the opposite direction on a 10-1. They are well respected and liked. I'd say what the post said that is bs. Infact, the only coppers who give them a hard time are loosers like Jakstavich, Sgt B.L, Borezky, Weber and the 009 "B" team. I appreciate what K.H. has done for his country and I am fully supportative of him. Hey K. H, don't mind the fools. Keep you head up. I know this much-K.H. ain't no gang banger.

These two guys are hard workers who will fight like hell out there. They are veterans of war. I thank them both for that. MT a pussy? Ha! I never had to worry when I was MT's partner. He was a tad bit overly aggressive. Funny, officers in 009 like to talk about how aggressive they are, but he actually made it an artform. He always had a copper's back and the badguys knew it! I was truly sorry to see him bid out.

KH is good guy. He keeps to himself and takes care of the parks in 009 on the 905 car. He makes good arrests in the parks too. Mostly weed. Only an complete idiot would say KH has ties to a gang. Being an Iraq vet does not make him a gang banger! It DOES make him a bonified HERO in my book!!!!!! Thanks KH.

The problem is you don't even have time on the job and you are trying to tell veteran officers your "family" member is out of the gang now? We all know the "family" member is still just another shithead. That's why coppers think KH is a gang banger. He's more loyal to the gang banger than the officers dealing with his nonsense.

The latter work a park car in 009 and do the bare minimum to keep the supervisors off their backs. It's true, DH and KH are constantly pulling over female latinas in the hopes of getting lucky. They are more worried about the females than they are helping fellow officers in the 30 sector. They should patrol the 30 sector more instead of always fooling around in Mc Kinley Park. Tina S. runs circles around their policework. That is why she was made Saturation-she's a good copper!
