This is a ridiculous and offensive question.

NOBODY likes gangs and gang activity anywhere in the world, rich or poor, unless they are IN a gang. And even then, you will find a lot of gangbangers don't like gangs either. They especially don't like the other gangs that they fight over turf with. And they don't like seeing their friends and family become victims of gang violence.

And I don't think you will find too many gangbangers in this forum. Actually, I'm joking. I don't think you will find any.

I think most - as in 99% - Mexican people feel the same way about gangs as everyone else in the world. The find them repulsive and terrifying. History is an ongoing sordid story of good people ever held hostage by savages whose only talent is to murder to gain their way. Not much talent in that. The lowest virus can achieve that. Yet the bloodletters are under the delusion they have power. But the power of destruction is no power. Only creation is power. To this day it is the same. The whole world cringed as the WTC fell. And we cringed even more from the resulting bloodbath in Iraq.

Why is it that 99% of us live work and trade in peace while 1% runs rouge with thievery and gruesome blood rituals? Whether the ritual occurs on the Templo Mayor with a knife or in Washington with an Air Force, the form is the same. 99% of us want to work, live, and trade in peace, but 1% are uncreative loose cannons whose only solution to fill their personal creative voids is to wield the faux power of butchery.

I'll take the liberty speak for Mexicans and 99% of humans to say the obvious. Whether presidents, kings, witchdoctors, or gangsters - we all find the blood cult repulsive.

The people who admire gangs and are in them think very highly of gangs -- obviously many other people do not.

When you look at the kinds of kids who drop out of school, or come from abusive terrible homes or who grew up on the streets, or who are born to gang members, the gang is their family. Obviously the well-educated and those from good solid hard working families aren't as inclined to admire the gangs or try to talk like them.

It's not so different in the USA.

Mexicans and Mexicans Americans fear Mexican Cartels EXPONENTIALLY more than street and prison gangs. Although i think central americans remain terrified by their regional gangs. Just look above, i dont think this guy would every bluff.

I dont know the current state of mexican drug cartels, but i do know they the irish or italian mafias cant be even compared to them. I always laugh at Mob Wifes show
