    On the History Channel. This is one of my favorite shows and this particular one hits home with a lot more than the normal show.

    The part that got me was that they have identified Norteno, Sureno, MS13, Gangster Disciple, and Vice Lord graffiti in IRAQ!

    Crazy shit.

    I have a few friends over there. It just sucks that like the show claimed, the 1% of the military that is gang related is making it all look bad. Not to mention making us look bad by tagging up other countries like jackasses.

    Since Saddam fell, graffiti isn't punishible by death - so most of the graf is by iraqi's.

    See if you can catch the show on a re-run. Like my first post said, American gang graffiti is being found in Iraq. Towards the end of the show they actually showed a Norteno tag that was crossed out and replaced with a Sureno one.

    It's not illegal to be in a gang. 1st amendment.

    But I do believe stricter checks need to be made and the throwing of gang signs or gang graffiti should be instant grounds for dishonorable discharge.

    I wasn't saying that the gang graf is by Iraqis - I was saying that we're not the only ones tagging up the cities.

    I don't doubt that. But as much as I'm not really sure why were still there, I know tagging up their communities is not it.

    Our military fails us. The army should beat the gang out of them. They have a new gang now, its the army. They should have enough discipline not to vandalize. That shit is illegal and creates an even worse image of u.s. Militants.

    Just as they said in the show, you can't prevent a gang member from joining the military. And when it boils down to it, basic isn't going to reverse the thinking they have had for at least a decade.

    then our military fails us. they are supposed to break you down into nothing and mold you into what the military needs. if you beat someone bad enough, they will change their ways. i haven't seen it yet, but it pisses me off that there is scum out there doing shit like that. even worse we allow it into our government.

    then keep the gangbangers out of MY military. if you are going to break the law (which vandalism is) you shouldn't be in the military. yes, i understand they use the military to get out of the gangs, but by god damn you better follow the law.

    the military has a standard to uphold and they should follow the fucking laws and rules of humanity. who is to say that they wont resort to gang tendencies when shit gets tough.

    then again, if they are gangbangers, that is less gun training the u.s. will need to do.

    I'm not going to get into a debate with you about gangbanging. I have never been in a gang, nor do i have gang ties. My opinion is firm, VERY firm that no matter what your background is, you should be professional.

    If you are in the military, you are upheld to a higher standard. you should stop the "G signs", gangbanging, color wars and grafitti. I will not say gangbangers are better or worse because I don't know. But I will say that when they put on that uniform, they have stricter laws and they are representatives of a whole country. they aren't bloods or crips anymore. they are soldiers and should behave like it.

    Blanco, we are arguing the same point. I was prior service in the air force also. My only point is that even if you are in a gang, you should stop flashing your signs and stop tagging the country you are trying to defend.

    a douche bag is a douche bag. i hate military guys who are fucking clowns. i hate gang bangers who are clowns just the same. but there are also good people who are in the military and i'm sure there are good people in gangs.

    but enough is enough. men SHOULD be held to a higher standard and should be more professional and mature than people who are not in the service. but it doesn't happen that way.
