Gang Problem In The Military?


I read this article a couple of days ago but didn't think much of it. Now Michelle Malkin is reporting on the "gang problems" in the military. I strongly disagree with Michelle. Gangs have been a "problem" forever in the armed forces. I for one don't mind if those with violent tendencies are out there killing terrorists. Would you rather have the gang members hunting down the enemy or breaking into 7-11's here at home? I understand that they will someday be out of the military and back in society but let's not forget the job our military is doing right now. They're preventing another 9-11 type attack by taking the fight to the terrorists. I'm also more inclined to believe that despite the graffiti most of these individuals have learned some dicipline and self respect while in the military. In my opinion this is much ado about nothing.

I agree. We should be thankful we are being protected, not left here in this country unprotected and our military should be thanked. Lee

I agree with you one hundred percent. If these young men and women are willing to lay their lives on the line for us, who are we to make the snarkey remarks about them? Each and every one of them are very special people. Thank God for their protection that has prevented another 9/11 scenario.
