Frank Hendricks (3 days ago)
That being said, it don’t make much sense to put all those tattoos on a “dead” body. Also, it will ease the burden on tax payers by not filling our prisons and jails with “illegal “ tough guys. Shooting them on the streets sounds better.
Frank Hendricks (3 days ago)
I have the solution to the “ trash” problem. Give police total autonomy and give them the freedom to shoot the “tough guys” on site. No more arrests and no more court trials. Just one bullet to the head. Let see how tough they are then. Or, pay me a salary and let me do it. Let’s start hunting them. .

Brando Escobar (12 days ago)
M-S 13 is not a cartel group They're not known for selling drugs or bringing drugs to this country as lets say some mexican cartels What members of the ms do is the so called "RENT" which means they go around telling people of their own community to give them money or they will kill them Must of the people are afraid of them and do give them the money but those who refuse too. It doesnt go to good for them The acts that they do here are nothing compared to what they do over there. Is much worse we have tons of corrupt cops, corrupt mayors and so on Pandilleros or gangster as you rather call them pretty much rule the country and they do what they want, What trump is doing is using this problem to trigger every single undocumented immigrants saying they're all the same and that's not true, yes MS 13 is bad and it should be exterminate it but so are tons of other gangs is the country.

The crips have 35000 buth crips and blood have different sets and crips fight against crips because they are different crip gangs . So that means that crips gangs are not bigger than ms13.whit ms13 that’s not the case .ms13 is only one gang

If you 'adopt' "gang style", you will have to back up what YOU think YOU want to stand for; a "Wannabe" is just as sorry as those damn cockroaches who think publicity is doing them a favor.
So America starts a war in El Salvador displaces millions them complain when they come to America.. How twisted and sick are white people

They said ms13 commits horrific crimes. What they take issue with is the how their impact has been blown out of proportion. Alt-right incels have killed more white Americans than ms13 has

Andi Gomez (2 months ago)
My mom grew up in El Salvador during the civil war. She says there wasn’t any gang violence before the war and now El Salvador is full of gang violence. It’s disgusting what MS-13 does, I literally have family that’s been killed by them, and family that’s joined them. They are horrible, and maybe their aren’t as many as them as any other gang in the U.S, but rest assured, they’re just as evil.

EG 95 (2 months ago)
MS 13 was formed in LA because the Mexicans were taking advantage of them. Then they got deported back to El Salvador were they got more people to join there. The reason they are savages was because they were made up of people going through some what of a war in El Salvador a war that was caused by the Cold War where Russia was trying to turn certain countries communists and the US wouldn’t allow it so they gave people in El Salvador military training

Are most of the MS 13 gangs members from the central Latin countries mentioned? Im honestly trying to understand - are there Anglo, african American and Arab members as well? Because if this is a uniquely American problem, I would like to know how most of the members seem to be from the same community and why it seems to sustain them. I feel like if Vox reported that as well, would we the viewer have more of a complete picture of the ms13 situation in the US
Filipino Mapper (3 months ago)
For once Trump is right. But the solutions he's taking ain't gonna fix it. Cause MS-13 has little care of people. So yeah, I don't know much, but judging by the comments They aren't a single bit friendly

How are undocumented, illegal immigrants American? By that logic you could say 911 was committed by Americans because the terrorists were in America at the time! What utter nonsense.

Are all you winger American's in the comments idiots? Vox isn't saying that MS13 isn't a problem. They are saying the problem that's being touted like migrant infiltrations and massive uprisings are not true, and that you should be focussing on issues that are true.

Love how they claim it's American born... um no it's central American born because they came to America and set up shop there. It's like creating a business that's made by british guys for a british audience and its HQ is in Singapore don't mean it's Chinese. That just what a part of globalisation is. Also love the low key undertone of how Vox are sympathisers of MS13, who behead people in Mexico and some of the countries mentioned...with chainsaws. Yes chainsaws. And vox likes that because they clearly hate Americans, especially when they leave out the fact that MS13 is in Mexico also because we all know vox is leftist and want Mexicans to come into the USA. Did you also notice how they mention the Crips as to make a lie about how MS13 aren't gaining members. Like the bloods and the crips are a 90s problem. Why are they relevant now? They even admit it to be fair, but saying that normal teens want to look like snoop dogg or a gang member it's some funny bullllllllshhhit... What else is bullshit? Making out MS13 as just normal teens who go to school
Jacob Hanna (3 months ago)
It’s the lack of sophisticated command and control that makes them so dangerous. Drug cartels only rarely commit open violence in the US because it is bad for business. MS13 has no similar motivation to limit their violence. While traditional gangs exist to make money, MS13 exists to rape and murder. As for the similarities to other teenagers, no one should be surprised: evil is often banal. That’s in America. In El Salvador they’ve begun infringing on the territory of the state, and the violence, though often indiscriminate, is directed: aimed at controlling the populace.
