Origins of Gangs in the American West. The origins of street gangs across the United States can be traced back to immigration patterns and settlements.

Under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico was forced to give up almost half of its territory which included what today is California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and half of Colorado, where Mexicans and Spaniards in those areas were given the opportunity to become naturalized U.S. citizens, and property owners were to have full protection and enjoyment of their real property.

(Photo: Jonathan McIntosh / Flickr)The first thing I did at the Border Security Expo in Phoenix this March was climb the brown “explosion-resistant” tower, 30 feet high and 10 feet wide, directly in the center of the spacious room that holds this annual trade show.
From a platform where, assumedly, a border guard would stand, you could take in the constellation of small booths offering the surveillance industry’s finest products, including a staggering multitude of ways to monitor, chase, capture, or even kill people, thanks to modernistic arrays of cameras and sensors, up-armored jeeps, the latest in guns, and even surveillance balloons.
