(Vanity) Curious here who watches "Gangland" on the History channel?

Posted on 09/17/2010 6:33:17 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

One of the best documentaries on television IMO.

Everytime I watch, I feel a need to go out and buy ammo.

Gangs are a cancer on this nation, and they are not taken seriously enough. IMO, even membership in a violent gang should warrant capitol punishment.

This is a documentary everyone should see.

I’ve seen it and I must say it’s a creepy show. I agree on the ammo.

Never. I think they are giving them exposure that only emboldens them.

I thought that way at first too.

But I think it is more important for people to see what (not who) is out there. (and arm themselves appropriately of course)

MS-13 needs to be exterminated.

As a high a priority should be given to things like this as fighting al qaeda IMO.

Anyone who calls me crazy needs to see the episode on MS-13.

Well, it depends on the Gangland series you're watching. Some of them are educational and even inspiring.

Like the one on the Bandidos? That was the s--t. The one about the Crips too was very good.

They even did a Gangland on gangs in fricking Anchorage called "Ice Cold Killers." Go to Youtube and search it all 5 parts are there.

One of th most disturbing things I saw on one of the episodes was how many gang bangers were in the military and came out with extensive knowledge of fighting.

Showed on guy with an AR-15 in LA deftly taking out severla officers, with extensive knowledge of “pieing”.

I agree. The Mexican and Latin American gangs are infiltrating the country.

I love how they openly say they kill blacks, because they are black, “The Mexican Mafia is racist.”

Ha ha

I watch gangland on CNN, SeeBS, PMSNBC, and other networks. It's call the evening news. The gangland stories usually begin in one of these ways:

"A White House spokesman..."

"Former Governor Rod Blagojevich's attorney..."

"Mary Daley of Chicago announced..."

"Jesse Jackson ..."

Well, you get the picture.

Agreed. They would happily help terrorists if the money was right. Also its important to understand that terrorism thrives amid chaos. Look at Afghanistan, decades of chaos created a training ground for terrorism. This is why the mexico problem is so dangerous.

Gangs should be properly defined as terrorists, and dealt with as such.

Sir, you don't know the half of it. I am quite familiar with the feelings that Mexican-American gang bangers and others in the Mexican-American community feel concerning our African-American compatriots. The thing that I find most humorous is that the African-American democrat caucus supports illegal immigration and the importation of these huge numbers of hispanic immigrants from Mexico and Central America that basically feel that the blacks are lazy targets.

It's a cultural thing and it is deep within the culture to despise "mayates". If the African-Americans were worried about the Klan in the 19th Century, the 21st Century brings on MS-13, "la eme", Norteños, Sureños, and just a bunch of gangs that actively hunt down and clear out communities.

They don't appear to have any qualms about just how they remove people as long as they're gone. Scary guys.

Yup, I’ve seen it a number of times. In a way, many of these gangs are worse than the classic Mafia types. They’re a hell of a lot more indiscriminate in their use of violence, and no one seems to be “off limits”.

I also tend to agree with the poster commenting about MS-13 amd the like. Some of these gangs are bad enough we ought to be treating them as a domestic threat to national security (because they are).

Last spring, my school sent us to a conference for alternative ed teachers. One of the breakout sessions was on identifyinig gang activity, presented by a cop who specalizes in gangs in our state. He told us what was on Gangland was only scratching the surface of whats going on in this country with gangs. It’s actually much, much worse and much more insideous than what they tell you in that show, as bad as it is.

The Black establishment is still wedded to the sixties notion of all of us colored folk against the White Devil. Most of the black elite “leaders” are not from the hood and couldn’t care less what actually happens there.

You’ll know the black political establishment is finally changing when that situation shakes up and we get black politicians who actually take up that cudgel.

By way of example, all of the self-proclaimed “Asian-American” liberal elites have spent years steadfastly ignoring the terror inner-city blacks inflict on Asian immigrants.

There’s a Puerto Rican gang operating up and down the east coast (as well as in PR) that wants to gain enough legitimacy to get into politics.

They need to be exterminated.

I’ve seen a few. They originally put it on late eves after children wne to bed because of violent content, then next thing you know: “Gangland marathon” starting 10 am. After a while it seemed to be a recruiting ad.

I can’t believe the Mexican Mafia and other gangs can run their organizations on the outside in prison. I DVR the show and see the same patterns repeat themselves episode after episode. Charismatic gang leader builds gang, gets out of control, the authorities start watching them and then put them out of business and the rabble start to fade away. It always helps to have a gang of your own on the right side of the law.

Yes, I watch them both, been through Nogales a few times, and stationed a few years in Fairbanks. I drove part of the Dalton Highway on vacation one summer. Those cliffs make the Sunshine Skyway seem like a kiddee ride.

I’m switching between Gangland and CSPAN right now. Gangland pulls no punches and lets people see exactly what these savages think and do - and yes, I agree, it’s a must buy more ammo show.

The 9PM episode had violent asian gang members who were killers but did not get the death penalty because the jury thought they looked too young.

Until people are willing to exterminate these monsters, the problem will only grow exponentially.

I like Iced Road truckers now that show with Lisa Kelly

I cringe every time I see her hop out of that truck with a pair of sneakers on, I'm sure she has warm boots in the cab, but if she gets hurt or breaks a leg outside with sneakers on at 20 to 60 below............those Kenworths must have a pretty warm firewall too.
