Criminal Gangs Update

On Tuesday, November 15, 2005, I posted Criminal Gangs - What We Need to Know. My intent was to enhance readers' awareness about the proliferation and sophistication of gangs.

Today, Friday, November 18, 2005, the Seattle Times ran an article headlined Elaborate Drug Ring Smashed. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer also reported this same story in an article headlined 21 arrested as raids target cocaine-trafficking suspects.

Both of today's newspaper stories about the drug ring being run by a gang illustrate the complexity of gang activity and the skills and resources needed to combat it.
