What if this "Gang" thing IS true?? Informing ourselves and the people around us is still a good idea to me.

The History Channel has an outstanding series. "Gangland" The program dwells deep into the culture of several gangs. From what I have seen, the really scary reality is, with organized leadership gangs explode in new members & violence becomes prevelant.
I dont see this here yet, however it does not take long for the "right person comes along".
Good luck with the research, & hope I helped.

FWPD has a pretty large and competent gang unit, unlike Dallas PD, whose gang unit was all but eliminated by then Chief Terrell Bolton.

You can find the websites gangs use to communicate, conventional research, and watch tv documentaries to become more aware of gang activity.
I wouldn't exclusively go by the emailed "reports" and the general news media for information. Also studying criminology helps to empower oneself as knowledge is power.
