Draft gang members into the army, instead of jail. Make them work and learn other honest skills.

Gang members actually join on their own, as it turns out the army is the most popular branch (since it has the lowest standards) while the air force does the best job at keeping gang members out. What happens is they use their time in the military to get access to better weapons, either through stealing them or the perks of buying weapons reserved only for the military and law enforcement. Then while in the service they get combat experience and learn military tactics. Once they get out, the overwhelming amount of them go back to their gangs, hand out the better weapons, and start training their fellow gang members in how to be more effective.

In many gangs these days it's actually standard practice to send any new recruits with a clean record directly into the military for 4 years.

Here's some quick reading on it.

Gang membership in the military is between 50 and 100 times that of the general civilian population.

That's what happens when the government is full of war hawks who create a higher demand for soldiers, which in turn lowers recruitment standards.

Considering everything that has been going on recently with the riots in Baltimore, Ferguson and the BLM movement that just serves to breed this type of "gang" mentality, I don't think America has been more divided since the civil war.

I think a serious look at the situation is needed, rather then a POTUS who stokes the fire every time a tragedy happens.

All Congress does is enact laws and authorize spending.
It's just the legislative branch of government.
We could easily go without any new laws authored by "corporate/special interest" for quite some time.
So in this case, firing a large number of Congressional employees ,quite frankly is the only thing we can do to slam the brakes on the corporate driven freight train that is railroading all of us into a nation ruled by corporate colonialism.
There are people we have elected to Congress who have been there 30, 40, even over 50 years!
Our Congress has been betraying our trust and selling us out for generations.

Campaigns are expensive, anyone who wins is sold out, being an incumbent or not doesn't protect you from that.
