Gangs Using Military For Training, Experts Say Email This Story Print This Story

"When individuals go into the military, they are taught how to use weapons, defensive tactics, and the use of a lot of sophisticated techniques," said LaRae Quy, of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "They take that back on the streets with them. This is a legitimate concern for law enforcement."


Army recruiting headquarters in Washington, D.C., dismiss the claims as urban myth. An Army spokesman said army background checks are extensive and weed out gang members.
I'm sure no system is perfect and that gang members probably do make it into the military. But I think it's probably more likely that gangs recruit people who've been in the military rather than try to send gang members to the military. Gangs have been around for ages and they get more sophisticated all the time. With the War on Terrorism raging, its no wonder that gangs will adopt some of the techniques used by terrorists because, that's what they are.

For the most part, the majority of our folks in the military are law-abiding citizens but what I've seen lately in a local Army post is very disturbing.

When the 3rd ACR was sent to Iraq I noticed a dramatic decline in crime by Gangster Disciple members.

If those people say that gangs aren't alive in the military then that's because they have thier heads in the sand.

These gang members not only enlist in the military, they get training in tactics, weapons, and logistics so they can use it when they get back on the outside. I've seen numberous accounts of these gang members using tactics against police officers.

I'm part of a Gang Task Force. I served in the military. Now i'm a police officer. So if they say the military doesn't recruit gang members, just go on the internet and search for gang members in the military. You'll find all you need to know

Funny.... When I was a punk kid in Chicago, Because of my gang affiliation, A Judge gave me a choice. 1 Year in County Jail, Or join the Military. I served 26 years active duty along side many other street gang members from all across the USA. To indicate that these men are anything other than soldiers, Fighting the enemies of this country, Is a bunch of political bullcrap. They are probably better soldiers than the Military could find anywhere else. Give these men their respect. Gang members or not, All are soldiers, Many have given their lives, Protecting your freedom.

I am always amused by the "gangs are using the military for training" scenario. While there are no doubt some gang affiliated people in the Army ( after all the Army is a reflection of our society) unless the Army has removed it's policy on convicted persons there is not much threat.
Most "gang bangers" have an extensive criminal history long before they get to military age not to mention ASVAB tests etc.
Gang members by thier nature haven't the discipline required to complete Basic training.
Of course the Army has made it easier by going to "Barbie" Basic Training. No stress no fuss.

This article and these comments hit really close to home. I'm an 18 year old in the ARNG and ROTC, training to become a butter bar (officer of infantry if I have my way). I have no problem with gang members being in the military, whether they're MS 13, Bloods, Crips, KKK, whatever. My problem is if they don't take orders. Gangs will always exist. It's something you have to accept. But if they are good soldiers, then leave it at that. If the police can't handle the military-trained soldiers, then train police better. it's a simple solution to a simple problem

The topic of Gangs in the Military has been covered by just about every form of media, from California to New York to Germany and back. Nonetheless, many people -- in and outside the military -- are in doubt that there are gang members currently serving in the armed forces, and others wonder if it would be a problem to have a gangbanger on the streets in the US that was trained in urban warfare. There is research that indicates some of this, but that research is slightly dated, and we are trying to revisit the issues.

If you served in the military, please give us a few moments of your time and thought and take this survey. If you did not serve in the military, please pass this information on to those you know who did.

I have been a cop for 18 years. I have worked in some of the meaner streets in the inner cities of Miami, Florida. In the span of my career I have seen and done things that would make some of the most seasoned veterans cringe. I have seen the devastation that gang violence leaves behind not only directly but indirectly. I live within a community where one needs to fear the actions of another because of possible gang affiliation. The lack of respect for others and life has gone out of control. What ever happened to respecting your elders for nothing other than, they were your elders? Someone wrote that police should be military trained. Ahhh, ingnorence at it's best. You fool, most of us are. Most of us left a life in the military and continued serving in a service that some what parallels that of the military. I have my concerns about gangs in the military. Everyday you see some fools carrying out acts of violence. Anything from an LA bank robbery, where the outcome was two bad guys dead. It makes you think, did they really want to rob the bank or did they just want a confrontation with police? More recently, a knuckle head decides he's having a bad day and decides, "hey, I'm going out and killing a few people on my college campus". Were these gangbangers? Probably not but, coverage like that is all it takes for some moron, over glorified, "GANGBANGER", to come up with his or her own scheme. I mean just look at the differences in writing on this page. You have some educated and some un-educated listings. I'll let you decide what type of person wrote what... With that, do you think those people could come up with an educated or original idea of their own? NOT!!!! Wake up people!!! This is a problem that will not go away and is by no means becoming weaker.

I've served in 2 military braches. I haven't seen any gang activities or members for that matter in my current service. Somebody said earlier that it's mostly a bunch of punk ass kids that watch too much BET and now they think they hard. When I served in the marines, an infantry unit, I had several friends in my company who were part of gangs upon enlistment, from VL's, GD's, Latin Kings, etc., etc., but they came in to give all that up and actually left it all behind. And they did leave it all behind and they were damn good marines. I still keep in touch with many of my brothers from the platoon, and they are all leading good, law-abiding lives.

I think men that are in gangs have very low self esteem. They need to feel like they are a part of something bigger then their normal lives. Maybe they did not get enough love and attention at home. They feel like they must impress another group of men whom they fear or admire enough to commit violent acts. These men have the desire to be respected, but are not able to gain this respect alone. It is sad but true

Now, putting in work is more then joining the service to learn the trade, how much skill does it take, to walk up and pick your target? anything less has no guarantees, these kids may have a beef with the law, but the battle will never be won, because the big guns, are on the side of the law, these wide eyed comedy shows reveal one thing, organization is lacking, because no honorable soldier rather he is from the hood, or in Army fatigues would be posting a mission on a open form. real gang members keep it real 24/7 if your cap is going to get peeled, your the last one to know it.

I would like to say this about gangs they are Bullies. They have masterd the art of intimidation for years. It's what they are good at and helps provide self esteem for them. Gangs only understand one thing that speaks to them and that is instinct and aggression on the innocent bi-stander. They no room for school education. What began in major U.S Cities as a means to protect themselves and the community from racial violence and better the community They are a group of annoying and illiterate kids. The schools which they go to has no means of educating them and don't care about doing their job. A bunch of kids who have no respect for anyone or anothers property. Also, each persons own expierence is different with gangmembers. I would have to say look at GD4 life. A person only has to look at his grammer, and attitude to know he is incapable of a civilized debate, nor a civil world. He'll never amount to anything except wasted space and a burden for the other civilized people who are struggling to better the society we live in. Gangs are products of their own ruin and decay. The ones who better themselves are a small minority. The rest are no different than a virus that attaches itself to a host(community) and devastates everything it touches. Americas culture such as Rap music, and artist nurture gang and criminal behavior. The U.S Government needs to enforce the laws and come down them real hard. Politicians need to stop worring about cracking down on gangs in a certain community as being rascist. The community in gang territory have only to blame themselves. Gangsta and others like him love the democratic party, because they tell them not to change but to blame it on the white man. I ask you gangsta what or what are you going to do to better your community except.......oh wait I am going to take a guess fuck you, shit bitch i'm a thug.who are you to tell me what to do. You and GD4life would make a couple. You are bastards of the party(Black panther party who's code was not to attack other blacks.) You are Martin Luther Kings worst nightmare and you have set his dream back 50 years. The bottom line they can not be rehabilitated, nor is there room for understanding. The gangs are monsters and something the world can do with out. I remember a story about the scorpian who needed help crossing the river and when he got the help he needed from the turtle he stung him. And the turtle ,eventually, began to die and the turtle said, "why did you sting me." The scorpian replyed I can't help it is my nature. And to say recuirters look for signs of gang affiliationis B.S. They care about only one thing numbers. I don't care, if they want to better themselves. If, they want to better themselves volunteer for something else. Not the military that is responsible for our national security. When, they get back from the military they will want to impress their fellow gang members by showing what they learned. They aren't going to change their friends, because of a uniform, nor what job they do. Gangs come from a dysfunctional family. An enviroment where it is better to be feard and violence is the one thing that answers everything in life in their pathetic minds. Think about the 18 yr old kid who joins the military and who is there to become a better person and for the pride and honor only to be beaten or sevearly injured by Gangsta asshole that did it for the simple fact that he was smarter, than him or the kid didn't give up his watch. You don't become a gang member to help your local fundraiser that helps and provides a better means of education and act like a boy scout. I mean look at Gangstas last line GD N Till I die. The stress and anxiety to him and others like him is green light to fight and hurt the innocent not to stop and think. Gangs get off from watching the innocent suffer. G.D and Folks, MS 13 are viscious people who are short sighted and mindless individuals. Gangs can only see one side of the issue. That is they are the righteous and we are the lams to be slaughterd. I believe they must be eradicated from this earth and no place in the civilized world.

First of all, most of the people on here have no idea what they're talking about. The belief that "gang members" join the military with the purpose of learning how to use weapons and fight police is absolutely ridiculous - they learn this kind of stuff on the streets, not it the Army! Plus, the belief that all "gang members" sell drugs, kill people, and destroy neighborhoods and communities is false too. Most "gangs" were established with the intent to building a protective environment against racists and crooked police officers. And even though most of them have evolved into a destructive influence, it doesn't mean that all it's members are dangerous criminals. Yes, there are plenty of "gangsters" in the military, but they're doing their job, just like any other American citizen. Many of them have given their lives in defense of our country, and therefore, to state that their aim is to pollute our society is showing disrespect to the values that this country was built upon. Gangs are a reflection of society, and society is a reflection of our military. So, if gang members in the military are beating up innocent people and destroying communities throughout Iraq and Afghanistan, then it shows exactly what our society looks like on a larger scale right here in America. It's impossible to win the War on Gangs - there can't be a realistic victory in that field. However, there is a way to self-destruction, which is what a lot of gangs promote. The only acceptable method to doing this is by treating them like real citizens and assets (if they felt stable and accepted in the beginning, they would've never joined a gang). For most of them, if you give them a chance to improve themselves and allow them to live better lives, they'll benefit from the military service, and they'll be better citizens when they get out...

They can take that knowledge and use it to protect themselves and their friends...

Soldiers that are discharged, not on good terms with the government, eventually become gang members. For or against.

They should just punish them in a group, If you want to be in a gang take the punishment of the gang.
When one of you kills a citizen then go to prison with them and serve the death penalty with them. That's a true gang member right. 'Wrong' because they use each other but don't fall with each other. I have been comfronted by many gangs to join their organization but refused because if you think about it their all weak human-beings. They can't live without an other man or so called friend, they fight together so kill them together. they use childern for their dirty work because they fear our country and don't want to risk their own lives. Like I say there is two types of people in this world dirt which we where all made from and shit. Dirt can form anything and grow. It makes it self to something useful. where shit just stinks and no one loves to be around it. they pick it up and throw it away. So ask yourself are you dirt the good citizen or shit the one in a hole.

The military isn't teaching them this at all.They will learn it anyway they can and we can't stop it.The military didn't teach them how to kill or shoot guns so don't blame us.They can learn all these things through life,tv,movies,internet,and other people.I do believe the police need to be trained in the military boot camps and tatics so they can help out. As far as the gang thing goes they are nohing to be scared of with their bullshit they talk about. We can beat the gangs any day we want. Don't blame the military for something we can't control.

Make something of your self. wrote:

Truth is hard to swallow is as ignorant as the rest of these gang banger want to be a bad ass punks. Why don't you all wake up and see that gangs are not the way to save anyone or anything. Gangs are not glorious and are not cool to be a part of. Gangs are not going to take over the world or declare "martial law" it is just a bunch of horse shit that is going to get you one of three places, prison, paralyzed, or hopefully dead so you dumb asses don't quit breathing all of the rest of our air. Wake up and quit being so damn worthless and actually do something with yourselves. Quit whining about how rough a life you had or have now and do something productive to change it. Stand up and be a real man and make something out of your self. Quit using your parents and neighborhoods as an excuse and use yourself as an example for others to change, otherwise you aren't any better than the people you are using as an excuse and your children are probably going to do the same thing you are doing, in which case it is a never ending cycle. It isn't cool to be in a gang to sell dope and murder people. If you want to be in a gang that is fine but why don't you be a gang that does something to give back or rebuild a community and really and truly be about unity and brotherhood.

Before everyone brings this topic to a point which gives these cowards credit for thinking for themselves. We should just return to the old ways NO CRIMINALS ALLOWED....... Yes the ARMY is a way out of the hood, but not for adult criminal. Small childhood crimes ok (CHILDHOOD CRIMES) NOT drug dealing, rape, armed robbery murder(manslaughter) these are adult crimes. Running away, cutting school, childhood fight not (jmping in) etc... these are childhood crimes. We should be looking for leaders even in our lower enlisted soldiers the might just be in charge one day.

wow, soo much ignorance, well i grew up in compton, in a neighborhood for me to know. Could not affort college and i wanted to change my ways. so i joined the army, now im 21 with an AA working on my BA. I still talk to my friends i grew up with, that was all i knew and had. There is idiots in the military who gangbang but most of them are a bunch of suburb kids or what ever. my point is to those stupid ass power hungry cops ( not all cops) is that there is good out of kids from the hood we just need a chance to grow. dont take that away from us. Now i proudly serve my countrys Army wich gave me everything when the cops. public school systems and streets gave me nothing, and tried to take it all away.

Yes I do think gangs have infiltrated the armed forces and law enforcment to.They have been doing it for years on top of years and Im pretty sure they use what they learned to do harm to others.The major gang envolved in this covert action? The K.K.K.This is not a new phenomenon.There has been people of questionable character in the armed forces forever.Whats new is the people doing it have changed and these people arent giving the ok by the goverment.Brothers,If you want to make a change if you really want things different ,Crip ,Blood,GD,VL,LK, Neta or what ever,start in your house teach educate yourselves and your children.Keep the brotherhood ,drop negative.I have shared a cell with some of the smartest ,most disciplined,gifted men around but it will take all of us to build this.Every piece,every person is important to this.The call has been sounded.Can you hear it?Do you know whats called for?

1. The amount of spelling and grammatical errors on this page is frightening.

2. The whole "bush sucks" arguement I don't get. This ONE guy created ALL these WORLD problems? Wow, do some research and stay off the band wagons. I know it's easier to just repeat the same old slogans without doing your own research, but give it a shot.

3. As stated, "gangstas" aren't "soap boxing" or "grand standing" on Military websites about how bad or down they are.

4. You dislike this country and it's government so much. Leave it. Try a different or new one. There is NOTHING stopping you from doing just that. Be sure to leave that blue passport behind as well. If you are going to truly leave the states, you better be willing to leave behind your liberties and freedoms. I dare you to try it. The world is a much different place when you aren't watching it through CNN's eyes.

5. It's better to say nothing and to be thought a fool, rather than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Some of you on here should really take that to heart

George Miller,
With all do respect what freedom are they fighting for? Terrorists can't take your freedom away; that's just the governments excuse to take one freedom at a time. Whats more dangerous terrorist or a tyrant, corrupt, unlawful, unconstitutional government? Everyone needs to read the Constitution, federalist papers and the Declaration of Independence. Then you'll know the federal government has (by our constitution) limited authority.

dumb niggers and dumb spicks, they should have finished school and got a job. they only join gangs because they are lazy and dont want to work. ive been in the military had good friends killed, and been severely injured myself. ive never seen a gang member in my units. they know nothing of the brotherhood of being in the military.
you fuckers dont want us to be racist, but you go out and kill each other, so there for you are racist against each other, right? go ahead and keep killing each other. and by the way, there is a differance between black people and niggers, spicks and mexicans. stupid fucking retards.
