Mexican Gangs

Information on Mexican Gangs

Gangs represent a very serious problem to Mexicos security, and even to some certain areas in the United States.

There are literary numerous gangs that operate in Mexico and in the United States. Some of them have thousands of members and some only a dozen or so.

A certain gangs have millions, or even billions, of dollars whereas many other gangs struggle with money, and are involved in so called purse snatching activities.

Even though there are many differences among gangs, cartels, mafia enterprises, criminal organizations, or whatever they like to call themselves, there are several things they all have in common.

First and foremost they are all breaking the low; they are making life miserable for the ordinary people, and their main instrument of business management is violence and terror.

Some of the criminal activities that Mexican gangs are involved in are: drug trafficking, murder, weapon trafficking, kidnapping, rape, racketeering, gambling, extortion, witness intimidation, conspiracy, torture, etc.

As you can see none of these activities are noble or romantic. In fact they are everything but that.

The term Mexican gangs is usually associated with a group of Mexican teenagers, or young people with stereotypical fashion statements that are living in mamas house and hangout in front of a liquor store, or at some corner, and hassle people out of their wallets or purses.

Even though there are street gangs that operate in this way, they are more a group of dysfunctional, angry, and disappointed teenagers, and immature men, than a criminal organization.

Of course that doesnt mean that they dont represent a serious problem for the society and that problem shouldnt be addressed.

Unfortunately there are gangs (e.g. Mexican Mafia, Drug Cartels) that are far more organized and dangerous than street corner dysfunctional adolescents. These gangs number tens of thousands of members, have a long history as well as very developed hierarchy and the way of functioning. They are very powerful, rich and dangerous.
