The FBI Announces Gangs Have Infiltrated Every Branch Of The Military
They are about 20 years to late.
And for the most part they are productive loyal military members or can you cite for us the disloyal ones criminal activity IN the military?
The disloyal ones are caught and booted out, just like the thieves and dirtbags have been since 1775.
Yup, I suspect most gang members that join the military prefer it to gang life. And those loyal to the gangs don't last long.
Not a shocker. They've also infiltrated some police departments, despite intense screening for it in preemployment. Again, usually found out and washed out within 5 years of hire.
But as society's morals and standards drop in every facet of life......don't be suprised when it happens to the military, police, fire, etc. We as a society have accepted lowered personal and social standards. The military and police draw from that pool of humans with lower standards. It reflects.
why would a gang want to infiltrate the coast guard?
It wasnt that long ago you had the choice of prison or the military.
That option no longer exists. Standards have improved. I cant argue moral standards havent gotten worse. With a 40% single parent birth rate who could?
True, it has improved on that note. But as far as fitness standards and exemptions, etc. Police depts have followed much of the same in overlooking petty arrests or sloppy fitness standards. Why? Well, the general population is fatter and less disciplined than ever.
PD's have gotten way more dependent on ex-military guys, and suprisingly ex-athletes (like former college football players, etc) due to having fitness and personal discipline from sports. Ex military or ex athlete is a huge plus in police application now. The general population is just fat, whiny and undisciplined.
Also old news but probably of more concern- we've been inadvertently training troops for the cartels:
The Gulf Cartel boasts a rare weapon in the high stakes war for drug-trafficking supremacy: U.S.-trained soldiers.
The Zetas, hired assassins for the Gulf Cartel, feature 31 ex-soldiers once part of an elite division of the Mexican army the Special Air Mobile Force Group. At least one-third of this battalions deserters was trained at the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Ga., according to documents from the Mexican secretary of defense.
U.S.-trained ex-soldiers aiding drug cartel, zetas, mexican, drug - Local - Brownsville Herald
Los Zetas have long since struck out on their own and been responsible for a lot of mayhem.
