I lived in fla in the late 80 and 90 there were noe sign of drug dealers or gangs there then one day it started now that place is over run, what do they have to gain here location , think about it why all the trucking company in east tenn LOCATION, plus the small police force they prey on week towns, I hope there are no gangs here thats why im here to raise my kids in a great town, as for the police comment it was not a put down they just dont have the man power as other big cities to deal with it right now, but if the gang rumor is true they will expand

Go to a real city, with real crime, with REAL gangs, and tell me to be uncomfortable with my opinion. For starters, the graffiti was misspelled, and as far as I know, gang signs don't consist of spray painting the word "bloods" on things around a small town. What I do believe, however, is that we have some trailer park rejects that have watched entirely too much BET to be able to form an opinion of their own. The closest thing to a gang locally is the KKK, and they're so disorganized and unintelligent, I wouldn't really call that a threat. So, thanks for the advice, but 14 year olds with red spray paint aren't my idea of something to be afraid of.

This is too funny. Gangs? Here? I guess "Bubba's Disciples" are going to start doing drivebys on "The North Greene Emo Assassins". I agree with easttennskin. Closest thing to gangs are little white kids who watch rap videos all day and listen to Tupac in the new cars their moms bought them. When I see a few suburban/country boys dead in the K-Mart parking lot I'll believe it. I can pretty much tell you what hapepned. A little kid had a can of spray paint and couldn't think of anything to do with it, and since he was sitting in his beautiful little suburban home listening to Snoop Dogg he decided to go out and do something "Gangster".

Why does it have to be about blaming it on BET or Snoop Dog? Its the parents fault. Maybe county Schools? What about Mexicans, and Latino's? I bet those cooks at china chef are in a Asian gang? You never know, could be those white boys in politics around here are one. ;)

GANGS.... NO!! DRUGS...YES!! alot and unfortantly thats what will cause our crime rate to sky rocket and thus that will create gangs do we have wannabe's? omg yes but real cali/ny big city type gang activity no, not yet! but sadly if the youth continue to see there parents going to flordia to get there pills to sell and there parents partcipating in meth,pills etc using/buying/selling activity thats what they will learn and become the gangs that will be in greeneville! When? Soon sadly! I think if we could clean up the drugs and fix the interstate travling to pain clinics harder to do and tighten up on drug activiy that might make greeneville less atractive to the gang life. but it's only a matter of time I am afraid before things get bad and ugly.

There is no gangs around greenville a bunch of dumb kids tryin 2 havin fun cause there is nothing to do in this god forsaken town.And yes there is some punks in the commons but not everybody bad so dont talk shit on that. The cops keep everybody ran out anyway. If there was more shit 2 do around here the drug problem prob. wouldnt be so bad. Hell might cut down on the drinking partying dui all that cause that y ive been partying since i was 13.

Yes we do have real gang affiliations in Greeneville, and since most of you/me shop and eat and entertain ourselves between Johnson City and Knoxville, I feel comfortable calling that our community which expands what we call "around here" greatly.

I think they should open up a season on these punks they should not be arrested they should be shot on sight, think that would take care of most the gang problems all over, they dont deserve a day in court. Cause they sure would shoot you and then go eat dinner,with out thinking about it,,
amen. ive seen some gang activity in this area, but judging by the size, they could be easily taken care of. i know of several gangs, not giving any names of gangs or people, but as far as i know, they are just buying and selling drugs and not really killing or hurting anyone. but things could change.
