Texas DPS 2018 Report On Gangs Notes MS13 Uses Houston As Hub

first_img Share Edgard Garrido/APThe Texas DPS says the gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) is increasing its membership in Texas and using Houston as a “hub” for criminal activity.The Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), one of the most violent and feared gangs in the world, is increasing its criminal activity in Houston, according to the Texas Gang Threat Assessment for 2018, which the Department of Public Safety has released this week.MS-13 is involved in drug and human smuggling, prostitution, murder and extortion, among other illegal activities. It was founded in Los Angeles in the 1980s by immigrants from El Salvador and later spread throughout the United States, Central America, and Canada.The report describes MS-13 as a Tier 1 threat and notes the gang has historically used Texas as “a transitional area or as a location to hide from criminal charges in other states or countries.” However, recent intelligence indicates Houston has gained relevance in the Mara Salvatrucha’s activity, so much that is has become a “hub.”The report adds that trend “is likely the cause of increased membership in Texas.” It also highlights MS-13’s relationship with drug cartels and its practice of recruiting juveniles.One of the findings of the report is that MS-13 is refining and changing techniques to evade law enforcement detection, for instance by changing the gang’s long-standing rules on clothes and tattoos.Citing the U.S. Department of Justice, the report gives an example of a local crime that occurred in 2018 when an MS-13 member who lived in Virginia instructed gang members based in Houston to shoot rival gang members who allegedly killed an MS-13 member.The report highlights that law enforcement agencies participating in the Texas Anti-Gang Centers (TAG) have made over 9,000 arrests since the first TAG center opened in Houston in 2013.last_img read more

Michigan House approves Rep Steve Johnsons plan helping those wrongfully convicted of

first_img Categories: News,Steven Johnson News The Michigan House today unanimously approved state Rep. Steve Johnson’s plan to ensure those who have been exonerated of a crime would receive the compensation due to them from the state.Johnson’s plan would benefit exonerated Michiganders such as Richard Phillips – who spent more than 45 years in prison after a wrongful conviction, then returned to society with no support system to help him get back on his feet. Dozens of other Michigan residents could be in similar situations because the state’s fund for compensating wrongfully convicted individuals is about out of money.“The fund is essentially bankrupt, and we have an obligation to ensure people like Richard Phillips receive the compensation they are lawfully due,” Johnson, of Wayland, said after the House approved his plan to add $10 million to the fund. “I am glad to see the bipartisan support needed to right this wrong and ensure this fund has reliable, adequate funding well into the future.”In 2016, the Michigan Wrongful Compensation Act was signed into law. The fund is supposed to award an individual exonerated of a wrongful conviction with $50,000 for each year unjustly spent in prison. But the fund currently has less than $500,000, which will likely be totally depleted upon the first few claims by exonerated prisoners.Phillips is awaiting an expected payment from the state after serving time for a murder he didn’t commit. Wayne County officials dismissed charges against him in 2018.The 72-year-old has sold artwork and scrambled to stay afloat financially after decades in prison.“After 47 years, everything was gone. I didn’t even have identification,” Phillips told the House Appropriations Committee recently. “And then I didn’t have any support. So when I got out…I pretty much had to go it alone. I hadn’t done anything wrong to deserve that kind of treatment. I was a citizen, just like any of you. So don’t think that it can’t happen to anybody – because it can. I’ve lived through it.”Johnson’s bill directs $10 million from the general fund to cover the Michigan Wrongful Imprisonment Fund shortfall until next year’s budget is finalized. The measure also ensures that the Legislature receives regular reports about pending claims and the balance of the fund to prevent future shortfalls.House Bill 4286 advances to the Senate for further consideration. 12Mar Michigan House approves Rep. Steve Johnson’s plan helping those wrongfully convicted of crimescenter_img ###last_img read more
