Personally, it’s almost laughable to think about gangs in the state of Texas. I’m aware that gangs are everywhere but I just don’t think about them as I just stay so busy between work and stuff at home. But there is lots of organized criminal activity that takes place across the state of Texas whether we are aware of it going on or not.  

Because I am so unfamiliar with gangs and criminal activity, I had to ask the AI resource Chat GPT about the gangs that are known to be present in the state of Texas and I will admit that it gave me information on more gangs than I thought would be in the lone star state. Being so oblivious, I would have thought there was two or three gangs but there are much more than that.

Most people would expect that if there is gang or criminal activity going on it would be operating in the Texas prison system, which is true. It’s strange to me that people would choose that life for themselves, I don’t know their struggles, so I am not here to put anyone down. Although I would think that operating organized crime would be difficult being incarcerated.
