Since September 11, 2001, the United States has launched a "War on Terrorism," but it has neglected its own "War on Gangs" in its own homeland. Every year homegrown gang terrorist kill, maim, and do more harm in financial losses to Americans than foreign terrorist do. According to the Justice Department there are about 21,000 gangs with over 750,000 gang members nationwide of the 25,000 murders committed every year in the U.S., most are attributed to homegrown terrorist gangs like MS-13, the Texas Syndicate, the Mexican Mafia, the Aryan Brotherhood, the Crips and many other gangs. The damage done in loss of American lives, property crimes, and organized drug trafficking by homegrown gangs are incalculable. While foreign terrorist want to destroy the American way of life, the homegrown gang terrorist want to live it at the expense of American lives. "We're fighting the terrorist in Iraq, so we don't have to fight them at home." This quote from the Bush Administration is out of touch with reality. There is a war at home one the government has neglected. The nearly $400 billion that the U.S. has spent since the start of the Afghanistan Iraq wars, and the billions more that it will spend this year to continue fighting these foreign wars, could be better spent on fighting a war on American soil that has claimed many more American casualties. I'm very critical of the prison system. Being there are two sides to every story, as a Christian, I've decided to share the other side of the story so few people know about. This expose will shed some light on Texas gangs, the Texas prison system, those corrupt authority figures that are in charge of running the Texas prison system, and those government figures determined to protect it.
