A few days ago it was published in the Dominican press that the Anti-Gang Unit of the National Police has reduced active gangs to a minimum and they continue to target, reduce and eliminate the few gangs that are still active. They say that between 2000 and 2008 there was a gsng problem that affected Dominican society, but the efforts of the Anti-Gang Unit of the National Police has been effective in capturing and destroying them.

Gang members are given psycological treatment and several educational programs that eventually gets them out of the gangs and reinsert them into society.

There is no connection between gangs in Central America and Dominican ones. The former have very different forms of acting than Dominican ones and have very different organizational structures and norms. Basically, Central American gangs are more violent, dangerous, and ruthless than Dominican ones. They are also more organized.

The Anti-Gang Unit also keeps track in various social media, because Dominican gangs often use them to attract new gang members, mainly teens. They keep track of all Dominican used social media and online forums. As soon a gang members are identified, the page gets subject to an investigation and then it's forced to shutdown.

"Dominican Gangs are a Thing of the Past" is the subject title. In the usual manner of how we operate on DR1 we will take the subject title and slowly turn it around to show that names that end in a vowel, specifically Italian names,
family names of successful Italians, are criminals. All of them. Without exception.

What do you think Mods? IMO as an Italian-American I think this is insulting and the product of a small minds. Over to you.
