Well Detroit don't have a gang problem, just drugs and violent crime. Chicago last year had more murders than LA. For me living in the Chicago area, Chicago does have a large gang population. Its probably a tie or LA just have more gangs.

I've seen articles saying Chicago is the gangland capital of the United States. Also, that it has the worst public school system in the country. What are your thoughts on that?

Is it bad in San Antonio? I'd think aside from Chicago & L.A., New York City would be the next runner up for gang infestation.

Well back in the day Detroit had a major gang problem with gangs like Y.B.I.(Young Boys Incorporated)The Pony Down Crew and The Jeffries Boys.

L.A. had major problems with Crips and Damu Bloods

Chicago had problems (and probably from just mexicans now)Gangster Disciples,Black Disciples,Satan Disciples,Spanish Gangster Disciples,Vicelords,"Unkn own"Vicelords,Mafia Insane Vicelords,Traveler ViceLords,4 Corner Hustler vice Lords,Latin Kings,Maniac Latin Disciples,Simon City Royals,Black P stones Or El Rukn,Almighty Del Vikings,Bogish Boyz,C-Fluid ViceLords,Spanish Cobras,Mickey Cobras,Jet BlackStones,MOC Notes (Move Out Crew) and about 1200 more.And yeah they were all fuckin crazy and some are still active!!.It's just not as bad as it was!

I don't know about the worst public school system, but it is bad. Usually LA get the gang capital, simply because it have more gangs. Chicago had a gang problem ever since the oldskool white gangs and Italian Mafia ran the city. In Chicago, most of the gangs are hispanic and black.

Yeah, I work in a military hospital but we're always getting gang members or people injured by gang members. It's pretty common here.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

That was disgusting.

Just shameful. I don't even understand how people can act like that. It's embarrassing.

Yeah same here, although I think the Mexican gangs outnumber the black gangs by a huge margin. I think part of the reason Chicago gets a bad rep is because of the days of Al Capone.

I don't even recall how I came across that. I wasn't specifically looking for gang stuff on youtube. I thought it'd make an interesting thread though.

That's surprising, I didn't think gangs were a big problem there.

They have a video about gangs in the military. They said only 1-2% of them are gang members.

Chicago still have a gang problem, its just tamed down since the 90s. Most of the gangs you listed are still active or moved out to the suburbs. Half of the reason why Chicago gang problem decrease because of all the blue light cameras and the tear down of the projects.

Actually If you look at "First 48" or go to the Memphis,TN forum on TOPIX you'll see that all the trouble moved there!!! That's all they do is gangbang in Memphis!!!
