Gangs Have Computers!
Chicago gangs are still spray-painting their graffiti on alley walls, train cars and viaducts — but they’re also using their smart phones and computers for “cyber-tagging,” according to the Chicago Crime Commission, which released an updated book on the city’s street gangs Thursday.
They’re provoking their rivals with Internet graffiti and using social media to keep in touch with their associates, according to the commission.
“They’re tagging websites with information that is provocative and incites violence,” said Jody Weis, former Chicago Police superintendent and president of the commission.
And this is a revelation to J-Fled and the media covering the release of the Chicago Crime Commission's latest publication. Of course, revealing how extensively the gang unit has been trolling and gathering intelligence won't have any effect on future endeavors, just like revealing how accurately "pinging" cell phones hasn't impacted long term investigations.
