Gangs, terrorists, and ….us????


I spotted this one on Cosette’s blog, Pandora’s Bazaar…….you have to laugh really, pagans and witches are obviously as scary as Al Quaeda to some people!

Street gangs have a new turf, the digital pavement.An AP story on CNN reports that street gangs have become web savvy and are using blogs, personal pages, and sites like MySpace to showcase their illegal exploits, make threats, and honor their jailed kin.

George W Knox, director of the National Gang Crime Research Center, trains police officials in how to cull intelligence on gang membership, rivalries, territory and lingo from the web.

In order to understand any subculture, be it al Qaeda, witches, devil worshippers or gangs, you have to be able to know their own language.

Come again? Now we’re being grouped now with al Qaeda and street gangs? What’s next? Actually nothing. I don’t think there’s anything worse than being in the same sentence with an international terrorist organization. I guess I’ll look on the bright side. We can only go up from here.
