Gangs members are in Garfield County, not just ‘wannabes’
Citizen Telegram ^ | April 16, 2009 | MIKE McKIBBIN

There are no gang “wannabes” in Garfield County, only gang “gonnabes,” said two sheriff’s deputies assigned to a recently formed anti-gang task force.

Deputies J. Miller and J. McCune, who don’t use their real first names due to the potentially dangerous nature of their work, are members of the Threat Assessment Group, or TAG, in the sheriff’s department. The group was formed after jail staff noticed an increase in gang members from California and elsewhere among the inmate population.

“Then we found some of them were hanging out by some of the schools, just off school property, trying to recruit new members,”

“We tell everyone that there is no such thing as a gang ‘wannabe,’ because if they want to be a gang member, they’re gonna be,” McCune said. “They’re walking the walk and talking the talk.”

Among the identified gangs in the county are the Mexican Mafia and their “foot soldiers,” the Surenos (known by their often grafitti-sprayed “SUR13” tag); the MS13 gang known for its brutal tactics in the El Salvadoran civil war; Neustra Familia and Nortenos; the Juggalos who “worship” the musical group Insane Clown Posse and their often racist and violent song lyrics, plus white gangs such as the Aryan Brotherhood.

Most of the clothing and colors associated with each gang are easily purchased

My gosh and here Janet Nappy of home land security said it was all veterans, pro life people, right wing extremists, people against illegal immigration, that would be disrupting the country side...A call to one of Janets deputies by Roger Hedgecock, enlightened all listening, that he had never heard of ms-13, so there fore they cannot exist..

If a revolution occurs in this country in the next two years, these Jose’s had better head back across the border because they will not be popular here and they won’t have the law to protect them.

“TAG members track known gang members in the county and inform patrol deputies of their activities, Miller said, along with school resource officers, as well as train school staff and the public on ways to identify various gang members and how to counteract their presence.”

How is that done, the “counteracting” of the gangs???

Keeping non students off school property, seperating gang members from other prisoners in the jail...

the “counteracting” of the gangs?

I forgive you!

I’m also guilty of “flying fingers” and not always using spell check.

Hugs!

As long as it is LEO vs gangs, it will be another perpetual ‘war’. Once the people decide enough is enough and start cleaning the streets, the problem will be gone. We don’t need politicians to manage our lives and we don’t need LEO to take out the garbage

This seems to be a direct result of allowing Illegal Aliens to remain.

They will probably be allied with whichever group comes after patriots.

Just about the last place in the world I’d expect gang activity to crop up....but then I haven’t lived there for years. I guess it has changed.

That would pass for the enunciation spelling in the South. Don’t be so hard on yourself. ;-)

You don't get it. Where do you think Obama will recruit his new National Security Police from?
