There is currently a large focus in Spokane on "gangs". What is interesting to me in the discussion is that police agencies hold the all the information. They decide who is an who isn't a gang member or a gang associate or gang affiliated. What sorts of gangs are we talking about? Who are the members? Of course two of the largest categories of gangs in the area historically have been white supremacists and the Hells Angels. And of course the area is now inundated with a legal magnet for organized crime--casinos. The public needs to become a lot more informed on this issue because law enforcement is arming itself to the teeth using the justification of the alleged increase in gangs and are planning to focus more and more on Spokane's alleged "serious gang problem", so serious apparently that just before he resigned in disgrace US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales came to Spokane and held a "top secret, sensitive" meeting with Spokane police, sheriff, and other law enforcement agencies.

Where have you been? California based gang members have been bringing dope into Spokane for years. ICG (insane crip gangsters), 83's, nortenos, surenos, are all in this area.
Why don't you ask the police how a gangster gets designated as a "gangster"? It takes some doing to qualify.

Thanks, Denver. Nice to have you chime in here in the Inland Northwest. Since you are not here, may I suggest you contact the police here and tell them the gangs have been here for years.
First of all, yes, the Hell's Angels and the racist skin heads and other gangs have been here for a long time. And yes, other gangs are coming along as well. There is currently a large focus on gangs in Spokane, i.e., a series of recent forums on gangs, talk of gangs, Attorney General Gonzalez recent visit, inflation of gang statistics with no reference to sources. Sure the gangs you mention may be bringing drugs into Spokane as you say. You might have missed the home-grown methamphetamine problem of recent years which made us one of the top meth affected cities in the U.S.
But thanks for suggesting you are the voice of the real world...much appreciated.

I could tell ya'll something I'm a west side crip villian outta fort hall ID. I went to spokane for treatment at The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations and I could tell ya'll that bangin' is a job you have money,respect,power,love inside your set and for the fact that people know not to fucc with you.you can't stop it so don't even try just try to get the kids or give the kids something to do becuase their just gonna end up bangin' like the rest of us that choose to bang because it's not just problems inside our family but not having money wanting to be loved no respect and once you start bangin' you have all these things and the only thing you have to worry about is getting killed or prison.That's the whole truth 100%.W.S.C.V 4 LIFE

It takes a big man to stand alone against many.Any coward can stand against one man with many.Gang bangers are pussies.Anyone can pick up a gun or go to a fight with twenty people.A real man can do it alone.

Gangs are probley the most stupid thing I have ever heard of.I use to live in WA. Now looks like it has gone to .... with this gang stuff. Man i feel for the good people of this state. I had a problem once with a gang called MS13 but now they are called MS12. It's time the real people fought back and get rid of these free loading scum bags. They talk like they never had an education and act like it also. One more dead gang member is one less problem.
