Usually has 18 a day. So I wonder how that compares to us? http://www.dailymail...arly-years.html And could our gangs do the same?

i read el salvador has 5 xs the murders as mexico does. has it occurred to you that if the murderers kill the murderers, then there are less of them on the street to rob & murder you? maybe its gods plan.

The news may not be all that good. There was an article in the NYTimes about a month ago about this issue. Many leaders in ES were not all that happy because the decrease in violence was an attempt to coordinate better treatment for the gang leaders who were in the prisons. In other words, the decrease in violence will last only as long as the gang leaders receive special treatment and favors from the prison guards/ bosses, wardens, etc. So we will see how this all plays out.

there are @least 100,000 el salvador gang members in LA. they deport 3000, then another 15,000 come in. state of california does not seem to care.
