What do street gangs have to do with being a Survivalist? Simple, they’re your biggest security threat you will have to deal with during and after a disaster!
Surpassed only by our U.S. Congress, street gangs are a major threat to our safety, security, survival and lifestyle. Few people understand the true scope and danger of street gangs.
Street gangs are sub-humans and prone to violence. They contribute absolutely nothing to the community while draining its resources.
Street gangs are terrorists! Why these gangs are not relabeled nationwide as ‘Terrorist Cells’ is beyond me, after all that’s what they are. I guess it’s the same reasons Congress doesn’t stop illegal immigration, have a common sense energy policy, has a grossly unfair income tax system or stop forcing businesses out of the country.
How many street gangs are among us? Far more than you think. In my town of almost one million there are 110 known gangs that have 10 or more members in each! That’s over 1,100 armed terrorists if counting just 10 members per gang. Counting smaller and larger gang member numbers I would have to guess we’re looking at well over three times that amount. Most here are concentrated in one northwest quadrant of the city. I can confirm that area by the local news reports the bulk of drive-by shootings, murders, break-ins, robberies and other violence take place.
With most disasters the most damaging part of the event will pass in a few hours but the recovery could be months or even several years. Exceptions may be pandemics or biological warfare which could linger indefinitely. In the mean time the street gangs will rule as there will be little to stop them because the police and National Guard will be stretched so thin they will be virtually useless.
Now, just how will those gangs affect you and I, the prepared people who survive immediately after following a disaster? New Orleans is a good example of what to expect, a lawless time. Gangs are now and in the future our most dangerous threat 24/7 especially for the weeks or months after a disaster event.
