AG Sessions Has Warning For Gang Members

posted on May 30, 2017

While America’s violent street gangs were largely left alone by the Obama administration to grow and thrive, the Trump administration is taking a different tack.

According to an Associated Press report, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has instructed law enforcement personnel and prosecutors to crack down hard on such gangs. “If you are a gang member, know this: You think you're targeting us, well we're targeting you,” Session told nearly 100 local, state and federal prosecutors, and law enforcement officers in Memphis. “We will find you. We will devastate your networks. We will starve your revenue sources, deplete your ranks and seize your profits. We will not concede a single block or street corner.”

Sessions added: “People don't want to believe that we have to have prisons. I wish it weren't so, I really do. We've got to be realistic. Imprisonment unfortunately is a part of what is needed to have safety in our streets.”
