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.
