    The Tennessee Star ^ | January 2, 2019 | Anthony Gockowski
    Violent crimes increased by more than 50 percent in 2018 in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, nicknamed “little Mogadishu,” which authorities attribute to Somali gang activity in the area. Buried in a recent Star Tribune article was the fact that violent crimes jumped from 54 in 2010 to 84 in 2018, an increase in roughly 56 percent. Authorities attribute the violence to rivalries between Somali gangs, such as the Somali Mafia, the Somali Outlaws, the Hot Boyz, and Madhibaan with Attitude ... the Outlaws and Madhibaan with Attitude have a rivalry that stretches back years ... A 2013 CBS article detailed the...

    The New American ^ | 30 November 2018 | R. Cort Kirkwood
    Border Patrol agents arrested an MS-13 gang member on Saturday who had crossed the border illegally after hiding among migrants who planned to apply for asylum. The man was not Salvadoran, as MS-13 members usually are. Nor was he arrested at the San Ysidro crossing at San Diego on the other side of the border from Tijuana, where nearly 6,000 migrants await application for asylum. But his arrest demonstrates once again the danger of criminals hiding with the Tijuana contingent. The estimate is that between 500 and 600 — about 10 percent of the contingent — are criminals. This latest...

    **SNIP** “The big thing [with homeowners] in the Hamptons is that if somebody has it, they [all] want it,” said Chris Cosban, a Long Island contractor who installs panic rooms in the area’s mansions. His company, Covert Interiors, charges between $25,000 and $200,000 for a standard space. (High-tech add-ons, such as fingerprint recognition, cost extra.) “There is a wow factor,” he said. “They like to brag about it.” Herman Weisberg, managing director of the personal-security firm Sage Intelligence Group, said many of his clients look at their panic rooms like amenity spaces — doubling as home theaters, wine cellars or...

    A jury in El Paso, Texas decided Friday that it is illegal for a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club to possess a weapon in the state. DT, a member of the BMC in El Paso, was arrested October 16th, 2017 on his way to work for Unlawful Carrying Of A Weapon. Although it was conceded by all sides that DT had no felony record and was not a convicted criminal, the prosecution argued, and the jury agreed, that merely being a member of the Bandidos was enough to consider an individual a gang member prohibited from exercising their 2nd...

    FBI crime statistics place Baltimore's homicide rate above that of any other U.S. city with a population over 500,000. Citing crime data released Monday, The Baltimore Sun reports that the 342 homicides in the city last year yielded a homicide rate of 56 per 100,000 people. Among big U.S. cities, Baltimore was followed by Detroit, which recorded a homicide rate of 40 per 100,000 people; Memphis, Tennessee, with a rate of 28 per 100,000 and Chicago, with a rate of 24 per 100,000. But some smaller cities reported a higher homicide rates. St. Louis has a population of slightly over...

    ---(snip)-- Lombardo maintains that “well over” 40 percent of suspects or victims in local violent crimes are Californians with ties to that state’s law enforcement and its prison system. Some of them have been identified gang members. The nexus might be because past legislation depopulated some California prisons, eased parole conditions and lowered the amount of time served for non-violent offenders jailed for parole violations. Could it also be that criminals think the valley is a good place to commit crimes and easily flee back home?

    Let's chalk this up to reckless pandering.  Chicago voters go to the polls next February, and Rahm Emanuel is so panicked that he's a little too eager to pose with a potential black voter.  A gentleman who identifies himself on Facebook as HobMob Taydoe has posted a picture of Rahm doing constituent outreach with him.  The only problem is that Mr. Taydoe, or whatever his real name is, is standing next to Hizzoner flashing a gang sign. For those who have been living in a mountain cave over the last few years, Chicago is plagued by gang shootings that have made it...

    Business interests and police are doing their best to minimize attention to the slide into mob rule of the streets in Chicago’s nicest, most famous neighborhood.  But shoppers, tourists, and ordinary working Joes and Janes can no longer take for granted the freedom to walk around Chicago’s upscale shopping district along North Michigan Avenue near the famous Water Tower. Four times this year, mobs of “urban youths” have taken to “wilding” and attacking random pedestrians while looting stores. The latest instance happened on Tuesday.

    Monday evening coordinated attacks small groups of young men dressed in black torched between 80 and 100 cars. The fact that the attacks took place in several cities at roughly the same time led police to believe the arsonists had organized themselves on the internet. So far authorities aren’t saying who is responsible but Sweden’s Prime Minister is promising to “go in hard” against whoever it is. From the Guardian: “I am really furious, what the hell are they up to?” Stefan Löfven on Tuesday morning. “Society will always act hard against this and we must continue to do...

    Police in Melbourne have been slammed for making no arrests after residents of the city’s north-west suburbs were terrorised by gangs of African youths who bragged “police can’t touch us” and branded frightened families “racist”. Despite its sending dozens of armed officers in riot gear to Taylors Hill as more than 100 teenagers gathered “for war”, and telling residents to “stay inside and lock their doors” as rival gangs ran amok, police claimed there had been “no threat to community safety”. According to The Age, there was a heavy police presence at the scene for several hours, including cavalry officers...
