Top Ten Worst Gangs: MS-13
Mara Salvatrucha makes all of the other gangs look like children at a Sunday School picnic. MS-13 is in fact the deadliest gang that anyone will ever come into contact with. The gang mainly consists of Guatemalans, Hondurans, Salvadorans, and other Central Americans and was started in the 1980s to protect immigrants from other big gangs. The gang has spread beyond Central America into Spain, U.S., Great Britain, Germany, and even Canada. MS-13 focuses on drug smuggling, black market gun sales, theft, contract killing, human trafficking, and assault, especially on law enforcement officers. In the U.S. alone, the gang has 10,000 members. MS-13 does not do remorse. Mara Salvatrucha hunts down and kills anyone who speaks to law enforcement about the gang. MS-13 is synonymous with extreme violence, especially against innocents. MS-13 torched a bus full of children and women. Twenty-eight women and children died in the flames.
