why is Trump the only presidential candidate in memory who has put elimination of gangs near the top of his to-do list or even mentioned them at all?
Much, much easier said than done.
What Would a Real Campaign Against Gun Violence Look Like?
Such a campaign does not depend on whether you believe there should be more guns, fewer guns, or no guns.
Why is Trump touching the never-touched electric wire called gangs?
No one has ever suggested a solution for a problem based on where the problem is located.
But there’s a first time for everything.
The NationalGangCenter (.gov) offers some other interesting (chilling?) numbers about gangs
The most recent estimate of more than 30,000 gangs [in the US] represents a 15 percent increase from 2006 and is the highest annual estimate since
1996…Larger cities and suburban counties remain the primary locations of gangs, accounting for roughly two-thirds nationwide
30 thousand gangs in the US. People dedicated to crime, quite dedicated.
They have guns. Perhaps, just perhaps they can buy many of these guns from illegal sources, which would allow them to bypass the tightest registration
laws. And, don’t forget, they shoot those guns. At people.
Has Barack Obama, who professes to make all Americans equal, ever seriously mentioned gangs?
Has he ever mentioned that the fate of so many Americans in city slums are deeply affected by gang crime and gang control?
How many times has he said, explicitly and in detail, what he is going to do about that?
Has he ever discussed, in public, the murder and maiming numbers—the human numbers racked up by gangs?
Basically, the US feds permit Sinaloa clean drugs routes all the way up to Chicago, where lesser gangs handle distribution to other American cities,
via still other gangs.
In return, Sinaloa provides the feds actionable intelligence on its rival Mexican
And of course, when you talk about the drug business, you talk about banks laundering billions and billions and billions.
Trump might want to think about all this. It explains a great deal. It explains why more heavily scripted politicians avoid the subject of gangs
You would think that any campaign to diminish gun violence in America would include, and focus on, gangs—unless the more important agenda is
maintaining the multi-billion or trillion-dollar drug business, with its associated payoffs to “helpmates.”
You see, the gun-violence problem…is part of the gang problem…and gangs are a necessary…part of the drug business…and the drug business…must
never be interrupted…because it makes a lot of money…for a lot of people…important people....
...Important people....Bill and Mena, Arkansas; an airport, wasn’t it? Cocaine deliveries? And then there was a CIA project to build munitions
factories in Arkansas, which Bill green lighted.
The Agency thought it would be easier to make their own guns rather than trade coc aine for them....But that’s old history. in the 90s
Back to Trump. He just can’t keep his big trap shut. First, it was putting back tariffs on US imports, thus creating huge numbers of jobs again for
Now it’s gangs. He obviously needs a week or two in a psych ward. One of those powerful anti-psychotic drugs will slow him down.
Then we can return to a reasonable and dignified presidential campaign. Sanitized debates, puffball rhetoric, generalities, Jeb versus Hillary.
Familiar ground. The liars we know.
The thieves and killers. Dynasty, the series running on all channels.
I believe that, no matter what gun laws are passed in America, gangs will continue to get
