Report: More Than 100,000 Gang Members in Texas

Caroline May, Daily Caller, April 18, 2014

Current gang membership in the state of Texas may exceed 100,000 individuals, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

In a lengthy examination of gang activity in the state DPS officials revealed that they believe the number of gang members may exceed 100,000 people, participating in more than 4,600 identified gangs in the state.

“This estimate is consistent with available information on gang membership nationally and within Texas. The National Gang Intelligence Center, for example, estimated in 2011 that there are 1.4 million gang members nationwide–a 40-percent increase from 2009,” the report, released Thursday, reads.

“Texas-based gangs, gang members, and their associates are active in both human smuggling and human trafficking, which often includes sex trafficking and compelling prostitution of adult and minor victims,” the report reads. {snip}

The most dangerous gangs, according to DPS, are Tango Blast and Tango Cliques, which officials estimate have more than 8,200 members. Officials also point to Texas Syndicate with more than 4,400 members, the Texas Mexican Mafia with more than 5,500 members, and Barrio Azteca with more than 2,000 members as the other most dangerous gangs.

    What is the difference between this and an invading army? The uniforms and the lack of fighting back.

    • AutomaticSlim

      Their uniforms are the grotesque, ultra low class tattoos they cover themselves with. Same as most other gangs.

      • Who Me?

        And the pants worn with the waistband encircling their lower hips.

    • So CAL Snowman

      I was curious about that distinction as well. It seems that by calling these organized and armed organization “gangs’ it mitigates the potential danger to society as perceived by the public. An organization of 8,200 armed and dangerous individuals constitutes a para -military force, not a gang (at least in my opinion).

      • Jesse James

        Worse these gangs have a history in Latin America of cooperating with and actually forming revolutionary guerrilla forces. Most of the communist insurgent forces in South and Central America have equipped and armed their men with drug money.

      • evilsandmich

        My thought exactly. If there was an 8,200 strong organized group of armed white people in the state I doubt that news of it would be stuffed into a below-the-fold news story about gangs.

    • Urbane Neanderthal

      The Mexican military has made repeated incursions across the border, we didn’t do anything about those either.

    • Nancy Thomas

      Make no mistake, it IS an invasion and it will carry the same significance as a military conquest. We are in big BIG trouble.

  • MekongDelta69

    And the number who are illegal aliens is…?
    Combined with who knows how many Mooz-limz(?) makes for a ‘wonderful’ utopia.

  • D.B. Cooper

    “That’s all?” said the President.
    We need more and more gang bangers, and I nominate using federal funds to settle them in Montpelier, Concord, Augusta, and Bangor.
    You Yankees seem to like diversity so much, how about putting your money where your mouth is?

    • MBlanc46

      I’m a Yankee and we’ve probably got as many gang members in the Chicago area as they seem to have in the entire state of Texas.

  • Fortunately these different gangs tend to be each other’s sworn enemies. For example, the Texas Syndicate and the Mexican Mafia hate each other.

    • Rhialto

      Exactly, just as lions and hyenas fight over a large carcass.

  • mobilebay

    Obama wants the sovereignty of Ukraine respected. Hummm! He didn’t say a word about the sovereignty of our country, which has been invaded for decades now. Of course, that’s part of the master plan.

    • IstvanIN

      Bush and Clinton didn’t respect ours, or for that matter anyone else’s sovereignty.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Respect Ukraine’s sovereignty? B******, Obama and his Zionist handlers have violated Ukraine’s sovereignty just as completely as they violated OUR sovereignty. They respect nobody’s sovereignty.

  • Dave4088

    The really chilling part is that these gangs are more organized and better armed than the white majority. Funny how the lunatic fringe left never talks about disarming violent black and brown gang bangers.

    • Ella

      They don’t have a high enough kidnapping risk to have any real concern in their gated communities and special country clubs.

      • r j p

        The day the Lefties gated communities start getting violated is the day the war begins.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Not for long, you can be sure they are going to be murdering and raping wealthy whites along with vast number of working class and poor whites. All whites need to get a rifle and learn how to shoot effectively to at least 300 or 400 meters. It would be better to become able to shoot accurately to 800 meters.

  • TXCriollo

    Ya were trying to fight it in Texas, the state is turning into a gateway for these scum

    • AutomaticSlim

      Without troops on the border, it will be almost impossible to fight.
      Just too much border.
      I say close the foreign military bases, bring the troops home, and station a minimum of 50 thousand on the entire length of the border. About 25 men per mile. They can rotate them in and out on a 6 month basis.

      • TXCriollo

        Thats the problem texas is turning into a gateway for these criminals. They dont stay like they use to but they cause a lot of issues on their way to orher states

    • Ella

      Not really, there are only 45% of Whites in Texas; each major city in TX has only 25-47% Whites with mostly Latinos and Asian populations. It’s brown to the core with most US illegals.

      • TXCriollo

        the white population is higher then that, second california has the most illegals

        • Ella

          No, TX is a majority-minority State. It’s worse than I quoted. Here is Quickfacts from US Census Bureau:

          White alone, not Hispanic or Latino, percent, 2012 44.5%

          • TXCriollo

            Texas vital statistic office white non hispanic 53.1% my buddy works for them they were not allowed to release that information

          • Ella

            Are they including bi-racial Latinos and Whites? I see so many Indian Hispanics overall with few fair skinned Mexicans, about 5%. I’m aware that some Hispanics are more White (Spaniard, Jewish, German) and others are very mixed, non-white. TX also has South American immigration now adding to more Spanish speakers.

            Mexico is successfully dumping their poor peasant class in the CA, AZ, TX, NV and CO. All major cities in TX are at ~25% White and just forget Corpus, San Antonio and El Paso.

          • TXCriollo

            No i am not counting the castizos,only criollo or non hispanic,but with the unfriendly climate for illegals they do come here stay screw things up before they hit new mexico colorado cali or other states

  • Jesse James

    Notice that the same Federal government that wiped out the white American militias during the 1990s find it impossible to stop the formation of brown drug gang militias. These gangs actively control territory and people inside the United States to the extent that they are effectively a shadow government of some towns and counties. Yet the government wants to disarm us and make us vulnerable to these foreign criminals and our own out of control police state “law enforcement” gangs. Something is very wrong with this picture.

    • Ella

      Yeah, they want us dead and not posing a threat to the elite. We know much of the early settlers were experienced fighters due to the ethnic disputes and kingdoms in Europe such as the Irish, Scots, Fins, Prussians and list continues. Maybe, they still fear us to a degree since there are still 180 million of us and some armed.

  • Ella

    More Mexicans always mean more gang problems and violence. Texas will probably just keep on building more prisons for their illegal criminals having an invisible border.

  • Dave4088

    The enemy is right under our noses and not over in Afghanistan or Waziristan. The problem of violent non-white gangs has gotten so out of control that we need a pro-white dictator who will commence a search and destroy mission against all non-white gangs using all available resources of the military.

    • IstvanIN

      Our government is too busy trying to execute ranchers over disputed grazing bills.

  • John K

    Well, when the Feds refuse to enforce the border and police departments have a die first, shoot later policy, this is the result.

    • kikz2

      help is on the way i understand.. those who shall not be named now have the contract for the wall in tx…..according to gov. goodhair. wonder how long it’ll be before they’re running internal chkpts?

  • Romulus

    How is it we can patrol and maintain the KOREAN penisula’s DMZ for fifty yrs. But not police our own border?

    Answer!– The government doesnt care. It is both to reduce us to a minority and the end result of NAFTA. Will it now be called the Union of Socialist North America ?
    The break up of our nation is what is trending.

  • MBlanc46

    What is wrong with your Texas Negroes? They can’t even break into the top five of Texas gangs?

    • TXCriollo

      Because we kept them in check and they still know it

      • MBlanc46

        Apparently that’s not working so well with the Mexicans.

    They only come here to join gangs that Americans are too lazy to join.

  • kikz2

    so MS 13’s dropped off the radar?

  • r j p

    Heck, we have 120,000 plus gang bangers here in Chicago.
    And they are shooting the place up to prove it.

  • jeffaral

    I have some advise for White Texans:
    -Stop being pathologically obese and slim down.
    -Stop supporting those Christian-Zionist churches and Israel and start supporting your country.
    -Stop worshiping those black and brown sport superstars.
    -Stop race-mixing with Latinos.
    -Kidnap the Bush gangster clan and deport them to Mexico.
    -Try to increase your IQ doing crosswords or just walking in the outdoors
    -Use your brains-in case you have any.
    Am I asking too much???

    • You are assuming an intellectual inferiority on the part of white Texans that does not exist.

      • jeffaral

        I’m not generalising Michael; there are some greatTexans who deserve our full respect for their intellectual prowness and moral integrity, e.g Georgia Dubya.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Add to that keep plenty of ammo and learn how to shoot, especially rifles at longer distances.

  • tickyul

    It’s insane, Libstinkers = enemy, Phonycons = enemy. Some of the most gorgeous areas of this country have been basically ruined by sick people with a very sick agenda. A big part of that agenda is uncontrolled 3rd – 9th world immigration.

  • Nancy Thomas

    They are SCUM and they should ALL be deported. They have no RIGHT to be here and I hate them with every fiber of my being.

  • It already is. This is called “racketeering” and “criminal conspiracy”.

  • MBlanc46

    Then they ride El Conejo to Chicago and make a huge swath of our region into third world barrios.
