The FBI Announces Gangs Have Infiltrated Every Branch Of The Military Robert Johnson | Oct. 22, 2011
The FBI has released a new gang assessment announcing that there are 1.4 million gang members in the US, a 40 percent increase since 2009, and that many of these members are getting inside the military (via Stars and Stripes).
The report says the military has seen members from 53 gangs and 100 regions in the U.S. enlist in every branch of the armed forces. Members of every major street gang, some prison gangs, and outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs) have been reported on both U.S. and international military installations.....

Chicago cop who served in Afghanistan and Iraq has warning: Gang members are coming home with military training
Does the UCMJ still exist? Is it being enforced? Who are the people training these thugs to kill? A looooong time ago, when I was at Parris Island, there was a story going around the company that the series ahead of ours was particularly troublesome in the early days of their training.
The story told of one of the platoons (Platoon 1024, C Company) were all gang members from New York and that THEY were going to run the Marine Corps. It did not take long for the Company Commander to notice that the Drill Instructors were not having much luck in changing the attitudes.
The Company Commander, a squat 5’6”, decided to clean the mess up himself. Armed with a swagger stick, he walked into the squadbay, turned off the lights and proceeded to stomp the nonsence out of the thugs - all 72 of them!
What happened after that? Well, they all graduated and they were one of the sharpest platoons around. Maybe far fetched, but I’ve heard the story from two individuals who knew what happened. I doubt the Captain could get away with that today.
Used to be that small time offenders were often given the choice of being a GI or going to jail. But whole gangs volunteering? Or are they recruiting once there?
20/20 reported on this back in 2000.
Why does it matter? It is just an alternate lifestyle. /s
We need to either institute a military draft or cut back our foreign deployments drastically so that we require only a small elite professional core.
Hard to believe Obama or Holder haven’t ordered the FBI to cease and desist on this sort of profiling. I mean, who cares who gets in the military, right?
On another note, as a shipboard Corpsman in the latter days of Vietnam, my LST transported a company of Marines once, the enlisted men made up entirely of those from a special program where a judge gave them a choice at sentencing of either 3-5 in prison or 3 in the Marines. True to form, shipboard fights of the most vicious variety sprang up repeatedly, and I and the Marine ‘s Corpsmen stayed busy down in sick bay treating the wounds, several of which were savage bites with full thickness “meat” taken out. Never before or since seen such stuff.
Emphasis on "small time". Small time used to mean stealing hubcaps, shoplifting, getting into drunken fights.
What is needed is to exclude any applicant with a felony record, with the routine sealing of juvenile records NOT being applicable to this investigation.
Perhaps of greater concern to Eric Holder and his fellow Obamulans in the DOJ and DHS:
Conservatives (Tea Party, NRA, GOA, Oath Keepers, etc) with military training pose a unique threat to Regime enforcement personnel because of their ability to acquire distinctive weapons via the 2nd Amendment, combat training skills, and their ability to transfer these skills to fellow Conservatives.
That’s not enough corruption to the moral fiber of the military, by far! We need the Muslim Brotherhood and homo sex promoters in there, too! The military has never heard of diversity? /s/
Our forces are stretched pretty thin as it is. There's a limit to how selective recruitment can be. The same long term trend that puts a strain on Social Security puts a strain the military. Some hard choices are on the horizon for both.
Our own Zetas.
Tried that in the 1930s, nearly had a disastrous outcome. The world is not filled with rainbows and unicorns.
...institute a military draft...
Barring a direct, visible, and imminent threat to the actual United States, highly unlikely to pass political muster.
The one federal tax expenditure and government function that is clearly Constitutional is national defense. Everything else can get in line behind that, IMO.
You shouldn’t say that here, it’s supposed to be Obama’s, Muslims, and illegals faults’... couldn’t have happened then.
Don’t forget the terrorists in the Zero admin.
Remember back in 2005-2007 when the U.S. military was stretched to the limit and the Iraq insurgency was at it’s peak? Rumsfeld and the Joint Chiefs issued the “stop-loss” orders, extended deployments, and most unfortunately, loosened recruitment standards. That gangs took advantage of those looser standards and are now infesting the military should come as no surprise to anyone. It’s yet another unintended consequence of that mucked-up war.
Bin Laden man in the Army
No problem. In a couple of years we’ll *all* have to join some sort of “gang” just to survive.
The fact that we are stretched thin is the reason WHY we must be more selective in recruitment, in the sense of excluding those people who make military life unattractive to good potential recruits, and who cause good men to want to not re-enlist.
Gays and Gangs, what a great combination. /s
As General Patton would have said, “Glad I didn’t live to see it.”
High school graduation? (able to read manuals a must)
No serious criminal record? (no to felons?)
That was when Bill Clinton was prez. I remember interviewing Dick Cheney about it back then.
