The Case of MS 13

"MS-13 is considered by law enforcement to be the fastest-growing and most violent street gang in the
United States. Wherever MS-13 goes, violence follows. Gang members have carried out beheadings and grenade attacks in Central America and have hacked people with machetes in cities along the East Coast in the United States. 

According to the FBI, MS-13's motto is, "Mata, Viola, Controla," or "Kill, Rape, Control."

By some accounts, MS-13 has "mushroomed into the size of a small army." The FBI estimates in 2005 that there were approximately 10,00 "hardcore" members of MS-13 in the United States. Estimates of the number of gang members in Central America and Mexico range from 50,000 up to 300,000 members. . . "
