Example text

38 For example, one study concluded that the Crips, Bloods, and Gangster Disciples had the most representation in military-trained gangs. 39 Some of these military-involved Crip and Blood members have been involved in crimes such as drug trafficking, robbery, assaults, and homicides. To some degree, this is to be expected, as the military often reflects the society from which it stems. 40 Besides concern over the crimes committed by these gangs, there is also alarm over gangs’ access to and training with more sophisticated weapons.

Estimates of the number of Crip and Blood gang members differ greatly depending on several factors. How gangs are defined, imitative behavior by others, law enforcement overidentification, gang attrition, media attention, and fluid membership influence the estimates of the extent of these gangs. 18 How activities, such as crime, are counted can affect our perception of the extent of gang presence. For example, if two known Bloods independently commit a crime without their leadership’s approval, does that crime get counted as a gang crime or simply a crime committed by two individuals who also happen to be gang members?
