    Metro Keeping Tabs On Local Gangs
    06-22-2005 10:58 AM

    (Las Vegas, NV) -- Hispanic gangs have become the most dominant in the Las Vegas Valley, and they have become very sophisticated. That's what Metro Police officials told a gang symposium at the Agassi Preparatory Academy yesterday. Police confirm that there are nearly four thousand Hispanic gang members on local streets, compared with 35 hundred African-American gang members, and less than a thousand white gang members. Detectives say many of the Hispanic gangs have their roots in California, where Latino gangs have grown and thrived since the 1940's. Because Las Vegas is so close to Southern California, Metro officials say the city has become the "nerve center" of various gang factions and cultures.

    They're just coming here for a better life and to do the jobs Americans won't do, or so says Jorge Bush.

    Yeah I read stories like that and thank goodness I live in a shall issue state,where even legal upstanding citizens can carry and have some chance at defending themselves and loved ones from the bg. Not that Im paranoid but sometimes I go to California on business and Im a little bummed I cant carry,as a matter of fact I dont think my carry piece is even legal in Ca.

    How long will it be before the gangs other criminal enterprise armies start on a serious attempt to displace the civil authorities? The criminal-politician alliance has already been utilized in Chicago. Better start teaching 'gun-enomics' is school so the future victims have a fighting chance.

    So out of a total number of kids, ages ten to 20, of 61,500, there are about 8,500 Hispanic, African American and White gang members, add to that probably 500 or more from the other ethnic groups and you have a rate of more than 1 out of 7.

    Not good.

    Well, yeah, but they're just doing the jobs Americans don't want to do any more, and besides, their families need the free food stamps, welfare checks, medical care, social workers, housing allowances, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. We sure don't want to sound like mean old nasty racists, do we?

    Concerning this being right on the US border - I am learning more as I do not know this city, I found this article a good read. I certainly would want to be well armed on the other side of that border US side.

    Yes, but who's NOT in a Gang?

    I'm pleased that the 42 boys in my Scout unit are NOT gang members. They are learning a completely different set of values.

    Well, heck. It's no wonder the leftist extremists hate the Boy Scouts so much.
