    Yeah I don't disagree with you DH. But for a lot of them. They don't have family or anyone else. Some of them, the whole family is involved.

    I got out due to the Military. But not all can do that anymore. Not unless we had some draft out of necessity.

    A lot of them not having a family or anyone else has to be a large part of the problem. You're right that some do, though. A local sheriff's deputy told me about a gang family that spanned three generations, grandpa, pop, and son, all in the same gang.

    Maybe the values that the family has are important, too.

    Definitely, when it comes to the Latin Gangs. Although I am sure it would be like that for many.

    No...this is the new iteration, started in February of this year, several months before the latest incident o 39 shootings over the weekend. I guess without the oh so successful gang basketball leagues there would have been...what...60 or so shot?

    How did we deal with violent criminals in the 1930's?

    What's to stop us from designating these gangs as domestic terrorists and deal with them accordingly? Making simple membership an immediate felony.

    I mean, they shouldn't be hard to identify and locate. They have their pants down to their knees and gang tattoo's covering their bodies.

    Send them mother****ers to Guantanimo or the graveyard. Preferably the latter.

    So, the question is, how can we make money off of the violent gangs today? There must be some way.
