All what violence? DC is not Baghdad. In terms of overall crime, it is approximately Lincoln, Nebraska. There is considerably less crime here than in Austin, Texas. As for gangs, some of which exist in just about every urban, suburban, and even rural area, the most notorious is certainly MS-13. There are also Asian gangs of various sorts.

Yeah, block crews. Three guys in the 7th grade with a MySpace page. R.I.P. Hol-Roid. Used to be the fourth guy, but he flunked history so his Mom makes him come straight home after school now...

The MS-13 hype is a bit overblown. Not every five Latin young males hanging out together makes a MS-13 cell like Fox news tells us.

No question. But from what gangs there actually are in the DC area, MS-13 certainly is the most notorious, even if the part of that notoriety that's derived from Fox News is -- like most of the rest of the stuff that they put out -- bogus...

Auston, TX

+1 to Democrats and Republicans. Dangerous and most violent groups they are.
