New Face to an Old Threat
Okay, I'm pretty sure we already had a thread on the new "Bad Boys" who call themselves MS 13. I just got the following quote off Free Republic:
MS-13 was founded in Los Angeles by the offspring of the immigrants for protection. Later, many of the members were deported back to Central America where they expanded their operations and found fertile ground for the recruitment of new members among the hundreds of thousand of young people with no hope or future.
The Mara Salvatruchas are known to cut the "testicles" of their enemies and feed them to their vicious dogs. Other times they have cut the heads off their opponents to play football soccer with them. These are not people to mess around with.
Today, the Mara Salvatruchas have grown immensely in numbers and their network has expanded through Mexico all the way to Canada. The extremely violent group controls large portions of the drug, stolen vehicle and immigrant smuggling operations along the US/Mexico border and will not put up with clowns like the Minutemen vigilantes.
I'm thinking these folks are underestimating the Minutemen who are I think a lot of them, combat vets along with some former SpecOps folks, so they may be more of a force to deal with especially in a field rather than an URBAN situation.
But their behavior shows a sense of BRUTALITY that goes beyond the norm. These punks are unlikely to pose a serious threat (yet) to Joe Citizen minding his own business in suburbia but I think it's very likely that they may well subcontract their services as soldiers for terrorists as long as there is a significant piece of the pie for them. So we have to start thinking how to deal with them. Here's what I have gleaned from talking to my cop buddies:
If you cross them it's combat. Period. They can't be "talked down or out of a confrontation." If you call the cops or especially if you expect to testify against them they are extremely likely to try and wipe out your entire family. That's their MO, anyway. So what does this mean for you, me and our families? Are we likely to see a lot of real support from law enforcement beyond just "give up?" In fact is the gubermint more likely to actively try and dissuade citizens from defending themselves from the gang, to protect us?
Apologies if this is a duplicate thread.
There....are ALWAYS possibilities....
Airstrike? Mortars? Ring-Main CLAYMORE's in a cul-de-sac? I'm SURE we can think of something! People (I use the term in the loosest sense) like this usually make the supreme mistake to think they are the biggest baddest predator in the jungle. When you kick the tiger in the ass, you'd better have a plan for dealing with his teeth. We grow tigers very large here.
