First we need a solid definition of terrorist.....It is very losely defined.... Gangs tend to go after themselves... I wouldnt consider them terrorists..... UNLESS they are targeting innocent people. Which they do..... But their end objective is not to dethrone a government. Its usually guns, drugs, colors or styles they go after.... Gangs usually dont want to leave their own "hood". When they do its to smuggle crap...then you start the boarder line for cartels...... eek... see so many gray areas on this subject....but simple hood gangs....meh....

unless you fight agains gvmnt, or ways it conducts its buissnes, you aren't terrorists.

government, and rich (the untochable), and banks, are rulling class\elite, you'll get more jailtime, and a lot higher bail, if you try to rob a bank, or assult a federal emploee, than if you would rape someone not important.

Umm, nope. Wrong. There are terrorists that don't fight governments, and don't care how a certain government conducts it's business. Those that do, are called "political terrorists"... there is a huge difference.

We are born with 2 fears: Falling, and loud noises, all others are LEARNED.
You say fear is all in the mind. I say you are right; for it is our imagination that makes things seem scary.
If you want to learn how to not be afraid, ask.

No they are not, as they are not trying to overthrow a government.

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

The danger that some people aren't perceiving here is that if you can be labled a terrorist they don't need to press charges to lock you up or freeze your bank accounts.  It also makes it OK for them to use 'enhanced interrogation' (torture) on you.

So once you say gang members are terrorists, then that will by definition include militias, motorcycle clubs, gun clubs, etc.  See the danger?  Terrorists need to be defined by thier political goals not just someone who may or may not inspire terror in some of you.

No and what does that have to do with the topic?


The topic is about whether a gang member should be termed a terrorist or a criminal. You're the one who brought in the personal story. What relevance does your story have to do with the topic?

I had a feeling someone would bring that up, does 9/11 and the terrorists taking lives of innocents bring relevance?  A terrorist is a criminal.

You would be really naive to think that said burglar gang member does not employ other coercive/criminal ways to achieve other goals throughout their lives as a gang member.

Do you know what this means?

I am referring to gang members.

So it should be that anyone wearing a 1%'ers patch can be locked up indefinetly, have thier assets frozen, and be subjected to enhanced interrogation techniques?  Because that's what can be done to anyone that is classifiable as a terrorist.  Don't act like the rest of us are stupid just because you want to say anyone that scares you is a terrorist.

Criminals and terrorists.  Two different things.  Get it yet?

I never said criminals are terrorists, I said terrorists are criminals, I never said they should have their assets frozen and be subjects to interrogation techniques (what they do though is far far worse.)  And they intentionally set out to scare people, technically they would be terrorists.

And you didn't answer my question, do you know what the 1% patch means?

If they are nice guys, then they aren't true one percenters.

LOL! Know many bikers?  They are true one percenters and if you're friends of thiers they will go out of thier way to watch your back if they feel you need them to.  You can be a gun runner and a nice person you know.
