    Approximate gang membership in 2004: 750,000 people.
    Approximate gang membership in 2011: 800,000.

    So, no, it's not up 40% since Obama took office.

    It's thought that about 1-2% of the military are gang members though - which I think is a good thing, not a bad thing. If you grow up in certain neighborhoods, you have the choice of either joining a gang or getting killed - I don't think that gang membership as a youth should be used against people when they grow up.

    The military will teach them discipline.

    If gang numbers are up, it would be a surprise to me, because from what I have read, crime is down nationwide, despite the bad economy.

    Naturally the military has some excellent educational oppotunities for future criminals, thugs, and assassins.

    Nothing new there.

    You should show some respect, vs. contempt, for the military, asswipe. After all - they're defending you to enable you to post stupid shit like this on the Internet.

    You should be waterboarded for being an asswipe.
