MS 13 Organization and US Response

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) considers the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) the most
dangerous street gang in the United States. The violent nature of MS-13 members results in a number of murders and vicious beatings. Already a number of cases, tried in Maryland, New York, and Tennessee, have resulted in hefty prison sentences, even life in prison for MS-13 gang members. Violence first attracted the FBI, but evidence of the gang’s increased levels of organization has
attracted public attention. Organization is an indication of a future where MS-13 is not only a street gang but a transnational criminal network, stretching from Central America to suburban neighborhoods in dozens of US cities.. . "
