Skip to comments.The FBI Reports Military Gang Members Are Funneling Heavy Weapons To The Streets
Posted on 12/16/2011 10:07:00 AM PST by Nachum
The FBI released its gang assessment in October saying that of the 1.4 million gang members in the U.S., many are in the American military. The High Desert Daily Press, located near Fort Irwin, Ca. follows the FBI report up with an investigation of its own, finding gangs are getting ahold of high powered military weapons and munitions far more often than previously thought (via Military.com). Their story lists several cases where munitions may have been funneled by military gang members and civilian employees at military bases to California street gangs.

The story smells.Anything out of our government and most media is not to be believed.Swamp needs to be drained right;look to alternative media sources.
"we cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded."Military training? check Equally equipped to military? check All too convenient with circumstances all too similar to "Fast and Furious".
Gee!I wonder where these gangs are getting their weapons,The FBI,ATF.With the approval of the Department of Injustice.
Sorry, the FBI has lost all credibility after F&F. I’d like this to be investigated by a neutral third party to confirm before I believe anything from any agency associated with the DOJ.
“funneled by military gang members and civilian employees at military bases to California street gangs”
Knowing what we do about the dominant demographic composition of “California street gangs”, what is the article (and the FBI) refusing to report about those in and out of the military that may be part of this? You get only one guess.
That training will only be marginally useful when you consider what they are up against, not only our own military, but tens of millions of honorable soldiers who are now civilians and are quite capable of handling that threat.
The terrorist that killed the soldiers at Ft Hood was one. There used to be one in one local Austin units, but he got out. I've heard some Mexican Mafia people are members of the military as well.
Ya, well, call me when the gangbangers start doing drive-bys with a 60mm mortar, Ma Duce or a LAW.
Douns like some ‘agency’ (Famous But Incompetent) wants a bigger budget....
Here is an idea -
Rather than spreading unsubstantiated rumours about our military -
WHY NOT INVESTIGATE THE KNOWN ILLEGAL GUNS SUPPLIED BY OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
What a bunch of weasels.
