(Chicago Sun-Times)   Chicago's hierarchical street gang structure has broken down into chaos, with small factions of freelancing gangsters driving up murder rate. Police have no GD idea what's going on   (suntimes.com) divider line 28

Those gangstas need a document that lays outs their organization. It should spell out some sort of representative political process, and maybe a court of review so the big shots don't get too far out of hand. There might be some sort of executive board to handle daily business. A better-organized and more equitable enforcement function might help, too. The various gangs should send representatives to the big meeting so everyone feels like he has at least been represented. Maybe hold elections, too.

$50 bounty on the gang tattoo. You can bring in the whole body or any part of it as long as the tattoo is identifiable. There will be no penalty for whatever it took to get the tattoo as long as nobody innocent or property by a party other than the gangs was damaged. There will be an additional $25 if the bounty is collected by a homeless vet.

The free market will solve this problem.

Solid Muldoon: Legalize drugs and this and this all goes away.


In exactly the same way that ending the Prohibition eliminated the Mafia.

No no... They should run it as an anarcho-syndicalist commune. They can take it in turns to sort of act as a sort of executive officer for the week. All the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs.but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more major...

italie: BBH: The Chicago cops did a great job taking out the previous leaders, now all the "bangers" are trying to get all they can. Too bad we cannot teach them how to shoot more accurately, they will take each other out without killing innocent bystanders.

That about sums it up. My wife works with a lot of the "older" gang members (30-50) on occasion. The kids have taken over, and most of the old guard wants nothing to do with them. Words used to describe the younger generation have ranged from "Completely insane" to "Zeros respect for anything, including life".

It isn't even about territory anymore. It isn't about drug deals either. Putting a cap in someones ass seems to be the overall goal.


Why do I keep wanting to metaphorically recast this with the GOP and the Tea Party?

"Aw shucks. The gig is up, no more drug dealing for us anymore -- time to get a job"


Except that they didn't really end Prohibition, so much as shift the focus to other recreational drugs.

AverageAmericanGuy: No more than I can blame the warlords in Africa for trying to establish order after the raping their lands suffered at the hands of the Europeans.


If the Africans managed to "establish order" after colonialism, why have western countries had to send them hundreds of billions of dollars in aid over the past few decades?

And speaking of establishing order: here's a video of Africans undoing the evils of colonialism. See how much better things are without Whitey?

demaL-demaL-yeH: MikeMc: This happened in Milwaukee, the larger gangs "devolved" into small crews that are responsible for mini crime waves. These small crews are much harder to combat than a larger gang with an identifiable structure.

Are you trying to tell me that cops in Milwaukee are too fat, lazy, and stupid to get out of the car and ask questions?

/Because I'd believe you.

Since this would be happening in the United States, the term is not "collateral damage."

AverageAmericanGuy: I blame the weakened Italian mafia for the upsurge in Black and Latino gangs, and I blame the FBI for weakening the Mafia which has, in turn, led to the current wave of violence.


So, you wont blame the people who do the actual shooting?
