What happens when the military is ordered to lower standards to get more minorities? Just recently four black US soldiers stationed in Oklahoma allegedly stormed a home occupied by members of the CRIPS drug gang. They unleashed a hail of gunfire, wounding six people. Local police believe the suspects were participating in a war for drug turf. Army and National Guard in Oklahoma and Missouri were told not to wear their uniforms in public for several days, and commanders feared retaliatory gang attacks on uniformed soldiers.

The FBI has released a new gang assessment announcing that there are 1.4 million gang members in the US, a 40 percent increase since 2009, and that many of these members are getting inside the military (via Stars and Stripes).

The report says the military has seen members from 53 gangs and 100 regions in the U.S. enlist in every branch of the armed forces. Members of every major street gang, some prison gangs, and outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs) have been reported on both U.S. and international military installations.
