What are the gang statistics in San Antonio? What gangs control the majority of San Antonio? I can't find anything on the web.

Try the SAPD Gang web site, which includes a Gang Awareness Handbook. You may also want to try the Texas Gang Investigators Association.

Gangs don't seem to be a problem here, but graffitti is rampant mainly on the southside of town.

i live in the westside and in my neighborhood there is alot of Bloods and Kings by the Gen.Micmullenarea then you go a few blocks west and you hit the Crips and A2K gangs i think that MS 13 resides by the Woodlawn/Bandera intersection i'm not to sure though.
but the whole city is runned by the Mexican Mafia all u have to do is buy a house or apartment outside the 410 loop and you will be safe from all the gangs

Honestly, I don't think anyone here could answer that unless they themselves or someone they know keeps track of that information or has access to it. The reason for this is simply, gangs aren't a big problem here and if something does occur that is gang related the news coverage just lists it as that, gang related and doesn't mention a specific gang affiliation because they themselves probably do not know.

Here's some info straight from the SAPD (San Antonio Police Department):
a target map: (one of several - very specific and pinpointed):
http://www.ci.sat.tx.us/sapd/CRU/CRU_011307a.pdf

Here is the link to that specific page, where you can find links to all target areas:
SAPD's TRU/CRU Target Areas

and here are some results and statistics from 2006:
SAPD's Tactical Response Unit TRU/CRU

Here are some links, but click around in there, on all the other numerous links...
and lastly:::::::
WHAT I DID NOT FIND, HOWEVER, WAS IDENTIFICATION OF 'WHICH' GANGS ARE ACTIVE HERE.... I'LL KEEP LOOKING, BUT I'M GUESSING IF YOU CALLED THIS UNIT OF THE PD, THEY WOULD HAVE INFO TO SHARE WITH YOU OR SOMEWHERE TO DIRECT YOU TO........

Are you looking to join a gang? If so, which one? You never said what you need that statistics for.

I live in the ghetto so i know all bout this stuff and the news doesn't cover all the gang activity in fact i watch the news and it doesn't come close to the stuff that takes place here in a daily basis Insomniac.

in fact gunshots happen alot the only times people call the popo is if someone is shot cause if no one got shot then why call the cops it's just a waste of time this is a reason why cops or the news don't get all the facts right.plus alot of the cops here are corrupt trust me i know . also before you judge me i'm not a gangbanger

If you don't want people to think you are a gangbanger than you should probably quit referring to the police as "the popo"...and a little punctuation and capitalization also go a long way...
