The gang nightmare

Source: The Inductivist just posted a piece by Steve Sailer on the growing Hispanic gang problem. Among many items, he describes how California has been exporting gangs to the rest of country. A few months ago I was talking to a professor who had participated in a study of gangs in Denver. Now, Denver would not be the first city to come to mind as a gang capital. Chicago, yes, but when I think of Denver, hip ski bums come to mind. According to the study, FIFTY PERCENT of adolescent male Hispanics belong to a gang. Folks, gangbanging is becoming NORMATIVE behavior for these kids. Estimates put gang members nationwide at close to 1 million, and more than half of that is Latino. Their latest strategy is to spread their crews to Indian reservations. In the past, gangs were basically limited to big cities, but now they've even made it to the reservation--a place most whites can't find with a map. This is a tidal wave, I'm telling you.
Read the rest.

There are several excellent comments...
How long before they are no longer a gang but an army? An asymmetrical, decentralized army that may not even know it is one. Will we even notice the change?

I am sure you read the articles about how these drug gangs (private armies, really) use RPG's and automatic weapons in Mexico to take on the cops and the competition. These guys are no gangbanger clowns. I bet plenty of MS 13 types know how to use this equipment too. The real question is how long before a LAPD cop car is blown to bits by a rocket or grenade or if a rival gang snuffs another with something belt-fed. Think of all the dope that crosses the border, then imagine the same amount of heavy artillery.
The simple fact is, it would be foolish to assume this wouldn't happen!
