Idea for the magazine

How about a few pages on the nations gangs.
Pictures of their gang signs, colours, area where they are most known.
Maybe a brief history on the gang.

The purpose is to help people and maybe law enforcement spot gang activity.

Just an idea.

If you're interested in a pretty good document on MS-13 gangs, then go to our web site here: and download the PDF. It's an English language version of a report released by the government of El Salvador. Pretty gruesome photos in the report, as well as a gang command chain, tattoo recognition, etc.

We have had several articles on gangs. One on gangs across the country would be beyond the scope of a single article, and with photos would easily fill a large book.

This semester the local school I am going to has a course that is a pilot program for another course in security threat groups. One of the texts we use is this one. There is another text that covers tattoos.

The other text we use is:

Pretty interesting stuff.
