You would think the "gun control" crowd would know that, but I guess they expect the bad people to say, "Oh, it's the law not to have a gun? Here you go, take mine. I want to be a law abiding gangster".

I watch it whenever I see it on.The shows on the outlaw and hells angels motorcycle gangs were pretty interesting.The shows on urban and jailhouse gangs are eye opening.It is hard to believe people turn out that violent and f'ed up.

I think what happens if I just go into that "hood" by mistake? Of course my youngest son lives in Chicago and he lived in one of those hoods and we did not know it until Gangland showed Pilson. I don't know who reached for the phone first my wife or me to get him out of that place

Excellent show. I watched it a bit tonight and always enjoy it when it is on.

TKA if your interested in the motorcycle gangs theres a great book called "Under and Alone" by William Queen. Queen is a veteran ATF agent who goes undercover with the Mongols in LA area. He eventually achieves and officer ranking and then brings down quite a bit. I believe he may have been on "Gangland" when they talked about the Mongols. $8 on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Under-Alone-Un.../dp/1400060842

I've wondered why these folks who are bent on killing people and really get of on it don't join the military. Let them go to the mideast and supply them the necessary arms to take out Bin Laden.

I don't think the Military is realy their "thing" the enemy has guns and bombs as well when it is a war, but if you are just a thug or crook, then you can pick on innocent people!

Believe it or not, even today, the military is pretty damn picky about who they let in. If you've got a felony or even serious misdemeanor, forget it. My son had to explain having a few extra parking tickets to get in the Air Force.

So all the military needs to do is create another division to accommodate such groupings. But don't tell them it is a one way ticket.

Oh puhleeze. All four branches are loaded with members of every criminal gang recognized today.

I knew guys on Okinawa in 1988 who were affiliated with LA gangs.
