Default Mara Salvatrucha

Or MS-13.

Lisa – Emails from the ground in El Salvador - Thursday, August 25, 2005:

I'd been on the ground in El Salvador for less than 20 minutes when we got the news. By 8:30 p.m., we had arrived from Los Angeles, picked up our bags and were headed to the hotel when our fixer got a call saying there was a shooting in the middle of town. Immediately upon arrival we see a dead body lying in a pool of his own blood riddled with M-16 bullets. It was a gruesome sight. As soon as they picked up the body to load into the truck, we noticed something shocking. Tattooed across his chest was "Hollywood Locos." The deceased seemed to have been part of a local Los Angeles clique of Mara Salvatrucha. We started our day in L.A. that morning and by night, we had experienced L.A.-style gang-banging in another country. As we were about to head to the hotel, our fixer got another call – another MS-related shooting a few blocks away. We stayed a couple more hours to learn more information. Then a red-truck carrying the forensic investigators pulled up to the scene. In the back was a black trash bag with two legs sticking out of the bag. There were four MS homicides the night of our arrival. It set the tone for the rest of our trip.

Holy shit @ the MS-13 controlled prison as well.

A global network of narcotics-and guntrade, prostitution, extortion, robbery, abductions and hired assassinations.
The leaders of MS-13 claims they have over 60,000 members in USA and South America. They have spread their influence into Spain, Italy and Germany as well, and also into areas which were relatively peaceful prior to their infiltration.

The word "mara" means gang in "Caliche", Salvadoran slang, and is taken from "marabunta", the name of a local type of ant known for its fierce behavior and defense of the colony.
In addition, "mara" also means fear in Spanish, "Mara Salvatrucha" would then become "Fear the Salvadorian gangs".
The 13 symbolizes the 13 rules which they must follow, and 'M' for "Mara" (fear), is also the 13th letter in the alphabet.

A few months ago, Adnan El-Shukrijumah was sighted in Honduras in a meeting with the "Warlords" of MS-13, the al Qaeda lieutenant was later observed in northern Mexico, again in a meeting with MS-13 representatives. - "He is looking for ways to infiltrate USA via the border to Mexico, and he will pay any price to accomplish that goal", said Erick Stakelbeck, senior writer and analyst at the Investigative Project, a leading counterterrorism think tank in Washington, D.C.



Seeing as they span over 33 states in the USA, and I'm not sure how many forumers live there, are there anyone here who live in areas where they operate, or know anything from real experience?

Unrelated, but being an assassin would be the best job ever.

If the victims were true assholes, dictators and EA executives, I truly wouldn't mind.

No, I mean like not having any sort of attachment to your victims, just doing it for the money. You could be killing the next Hitler or the guy you just did a job for last month (if the price was right), but you wouldn't care, because you're just in it for the money.

They're known to fuck shit up wherever they go. The Chicago cops have kept them out, probably using the usual methods (brutality, threats, and other dirty tricks). In the same way, crack cocaine was kept out for years, and until recently, meth was largely unavailable. Only a matter of time though; when something wants to rampage across an urban landscape, it will, given enough time.

Are you fucking serious? That's awesome. I know that there are some hispanic thugs that are into metal, especially death metal. There's definitely a sort of gang or prison mentality in some parts of metal, mostly the more hardcore-influenced varieties of death metal, unless you want to count black metal, which is mostly just a bunch of fraidy cats trying to look evil while avoiding the big muscular bald guys.

Yep, the metal horns are actually one of their gang signs. I remember watching a documentary about it.

Or as I like to call them, the best excuse for genocide, ever.

People like them shouldn't be sent to jail, they should be executed.

Nice. A few rowdy latinos is a good excuse for genocide? I mean c'mon, that kind of talk even not serious is just fucking ignorant.

Sorry, but you're getting this.
