Slide3:  Purpose The goal of this “overview” is to provide general knowledge of gang related activities and the military connection. “CRIMINAL STREET GANGS” Slide4:  WHAT is a gang? There is no single, accepted nationwide definition of youth gangs. It has been firmly established that the characteristics and behaviors of gangs are exceptionally varied within and across geographical areas. A community’s gang problem (however affected from other areas) is primarily and inherently homegrown. (Klein, 2002) Slide6:  A gang is defined as a group of three or more people, male or female, who interact among themselves to the exclusion of others. They have a group name. The claim a territory or neighborhood. They may have recognizable symbols or graffiti. They engage in crime or anti-social behavior that supports the gang’s existence. Slide7:  The military has been labeled as a major contributor to gang, extremist and hate groups “WHY” Training Recruitment Stealing of Military Equipment Learn New Skills Slide8:  WHY GANG MEMBERS JOIN THE MILITARY Attempt to leave the Gang Life Seeking Legal Employment Recruitment of Dependents and Soldiers Weapons Acquisition/Trafficking Learn Tactics Drug Trafficking Slide9:  Gangs and the Military Slide10:  Gangs and the Military Slide11:  Gangs and the Military In The News NBC17 February 24, 2005 Slide12:  Gangs and the Military Military weapons in hands of gangs By John Kidman, Frank Walker and Eamonn Duff October 19, 2003 The Sun-Herald Slide13:  Several black males came to San Angelo from Houston, Texas, to establish a branch of the “Lynch Mob.” One active duty U.S. Navy E-5 was been identified associating with these gang members In Shreveport, Louisiana, a U.

In Los Angeles a known gang member just back from Iraq firing on two California police officers -- he kills one quickly using tactics perfected on the battlefield. "Using strictly military tactics he learned in the Marine Corps, he applies suppressive fire power right into the corner," "He didn't learn those tactics as a gang member." Effects on the U.S. NAVY Slide14:  Effects on the U.S. AIR FORCE Two separate groups, the “Black Hawks” and the “Rebels” were comprised of dependent males between age 14 and 20. They committed vandalism and attempted auto theft. In the three months of existence, 28 cases were initiated. 10 to 15 off-post Philippino and Black males carrying bats, chains and numchucks came on base to assault a dependent Black male gang member. Pope AFB, North Carolina: a homicide was committed involving several active duty Army personnel and a civilian, all were members of local gangs. Alaska: Several Security Policemen were identified as recruiters for the Klux Ku Klan Slide15:  Fort Hood: An active duty service member (female) identified as a high ranking gang member in the State of Texas was convicted for 2 counts of Homicide (gang related). Fort Carson: An active duty service member (male) identified as the #2 gang leader for the Gangster Disciples in the State of Colorado was convicted for purchasing guns for other gang members in Chicago and Gary, Indiana. He also paid Soldiers to bring drug from Mexico by way of Fort Bliss. Germany: Death to a soldier in Kaiserslauten was gang related. Effects on the U.S. ARMY Slide16:  Fort Polk: An active duty member who claimed to a member of the “Zulu Warriors” was involved in a drive-by shooting. Fort Polk: An active duty member entered the on-post club and flashed his Blood gang signs and two Black males pistol whipped the soldier. It was discovered later that the two males were members of a Crips gang located in Shreveport. Fort Bragg: Several Soldiers with extremist views were convicted for killing two Blacks in Fayetteville. Fort Lewis: Family Member/Husband and his three children were hacked to death by two members of the Cedar Block Piru Bloods of Los Angeles. They were accompanied by a United States Army Specialist. Effects on the U.S. ARMY Slide17:  INDICATORS OF GANG ACTIVITY Increase in graffiti Slang talk/sign flashing New clothing styles Increase in narcotics Slide18:  Pages from a “Gang Knowledge Book” 031 = LOVE FOR BLOOD Courtesy of K. Ferguson Kelly, STG-A Slide20:  > “Gang-related activities appear to be more pervasive than extremist activities as defined in Army Regulation 600-20. > Gang activity both off post and on post (i.e., billets, military housing areas, schools, and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation facilities), sometimes involve family members and young soldiers.

Founder was David "King David" Barksdale and they considered themselves a "Nation" (BGDN) not a gang. Came from two different organizations that combined forces, the Black Disciples and the Gangster Disciples. In an effort to improve their image they are also known as Better Growth and Development President was David Barksdale and Vice President was Larry Hoover. Slide29:  "Latin Kings" The Latin Kings grew out of the 1940 and 50’s Chicago gang wars. One of their slogans, Amor De Rey, means "King Love". They developed a philosophy of "Kingism" and became a part of the "People Nation" under the 5-point star during the 1960’s polarization of Chicago gangs. They will also use a 5-point crown or 3-pointed crown. They have an established "Charter" and have well documented rules which members must strictly adhere to. Slide30:  "Bloods and Pirus" In 1972, some Centennial High School youth in the City of Compton from Piru Street fought Crip gang members who were expanding throughout South Central Los Angeles. The Pirus beat the feared Crips that day. In their honor ever since, Black gang members from Compton who were not Crips referred to themselves as Pirus. Other Black gangs (many of whom were already in existence for years) who did not become aligned with the Crips, became known as Bloods. Bloods will usually wear red, but not always, for instance Limehood Pirus are known to wear green. Slide31:  "Crips" This gang was founded about 1968 by Raymond Washington and his crime partners from the East Side (of Interstate-110) in South Central Los Angeles. Washington originally started up a gang called the "Baby Avenues", but after he got into a beef with another member, he decided to start his own gang called the "Crips". By 1971, Stanley "Tookie" Williams from the West Side joined Washington and the "Crips".
