M7D2: Transnational Gangs’ Threat to Local Communities

Respond to the following, three questions here:The U.S. has identified MS 13 as a transnational criminal organization (TCO).  What effect will that have, if any, on how this gang is dealt with. Also, why these guys and why now? Make a note that OMGs have been international almost since their inception, and yet we’ve not identified them as a TCO, why the difference you think?You might want to check out the following as background (right click and open in new tab):http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Foreign-Policy/2012/1012/MS-13-gang-labeled-transnational-criminal-group-a-first-for-US-street-gang (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.http://www.insightcrime.org/news-analysis/us-ms13-zetas-transnational (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.http://www.insightcrime.org/news-analysis/us-defends-blacklisting-of-salvador-street-gang-ms13 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.2. Additionally, at an ACJS meeting, some years ago, a presenter made the argument that when it comes to investigating, prosecuting, even cooperation re: transnational crimes, almost everything is voluntary. That is, whatever relationships, information, investigation, cooperation, etc. is done voluntarily. What does this mean for addressing the transnational crime problem?3. There was also a great line in one of the Mission: Impossible movies where the head of British Intelligence said “there are no allies in statecraft, only common interests.” What impact does this have on the transnational fight against gangsters? Is the head of British Intelligence in MI-5 right?All initial posts due on Thursday. Replies due by Sunday by 11:59PM.

However, the crime is more localized, meaning it is confined to the city or the area in which the gang has an interest. Two mostly Latino gangs—Mara Salvatrucha (MS 13) and 18th Street Gang (M-18) have expanded their criminal activity into Central America and Mexico and are now considered “transnational” gangs, meaning they are criminally active in more than one country.The arrest of more than 11,000 transnational gang members in the past few years clearly shows that this type of gang activity is on the rise. While some outlaw motorcycle gangs, such as the Hells Angels, have had an international presence for many years, this seems to be a new phenomenon for street gangs. Some examples of transnational criminal activity include drug dealing, identity theft, and at times human smuggling.
