Does anybody really believe that Knoxville has no gangs? I watched channel 8 and KPD said so basically.

Of course, the KPD police chief just recently said that a new 360 degree range would help officers practice "with their service revolvers" when they have had Glocks for 15 years so yeah, many of the brass are a little out of touch. Knoxville has well over a 1000 gang bangers who are documented and many other associates, supporters.

Mexican gangs own most of Clinton and Chapman Highways. The copa cabana is a hot bed of gang activity. They just have the kpd paid off. Knoxville belongs to the Mexicans now...just like Morristown. Nothing will be done about the illegals. Gringos vamos.

LOL! That is absolutely HILARIOUS. Seriously. That has to be the funniest thing I've ever heard. Knoxville has NO gangs? Really? So these hoodlums I keep seeing around the Fort Sanders area are just a figment of my imagination? So all these robberies which KEEP occurring around this area and Kingston Pike never happened?

Something needs to be done about KPD. Although it's pretty hilarious to find out that the Police Chief has deluded himself into thinking this, it's also pretty sad. I speak as someone who already knows the direct effects of a lazy police force.

It is not just here in K-town. Oak Ridge officials have similar denial syndrome when it comes to gangs. Officer Shaffer was actually underestimating the real numbers, but he is much closer than the department mouthpiece who is clueless. They have a list of those who have been identified and classified as gang members based on state criteria. You can just count the names on the list and there are more than 1000. And the list is only those who have been arrested, etc., and don't include others who haven't surfaced.

Each beat officer has a list of those on his beat.

Reminds me of an interview I saw with a new york city gangbanger that specialized in home invasions. they asked him why he didnt go 100 miles north and hit the isolated farms where the chances of being caught were about nil. He said "Shit, them crackers will blow ya shit away"

Kinda funny hearing someone from NY referred to as a "cracker".

Bottom line though, criminals prefer unarmed victims.

Motorcycle gangs meet the same criteria as other gangs which involve criminal activities in an organized fashion. There are certainly differences in how members are accepted, gang rules, etc, and what type of criminal activities they are involved with. Very few motorcycle guys do home invasions while black and hispanic gangs often do that.

There is not a problem with gangs here. Didn't you hear Darrell on the news? He confirmed that we are all overreacting.

Darrell is paid to mislead the public and make everyone think everything is hunky-dory. People who know, know better.

The problem with sugar coating the truth,when it comes to gangs,is that they settle into a burb,and recruit lil fools.
That creates a self sustaining infestation.

So are you saying that they are the same,EXCEPT for race and vehicles?
That does not seem accurate,cause there are blacks,browns,and Asian gangs on motorcycles.Some are even motorcycle gangs.
And it is a fact that there are white gangs in America,that do not ride motorcycles.
