Texas Gang Assessment, "Tango Blast" tops numbers

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat material from DPS Texas Gang Assessment
Tango Blast 19,000 members in Texas

Texas Gang Threat Assessment, which was developed to provide a broad overview and update of gang activity in Texas.

“This report provides an overview of gangs operating in Texas, which gives law enforcement important information to help protect our communities from these violent organizations,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “Gangs and their associates remain a significant threat to public safety in our state, not only because of their penchant for violence and criminal activity, but also their relationships with other criminal organizations, such as Mexican cartels.”

The Texas Gang Threat Assessment is based on the collaboration between multiple law enforcement and criminal justice agencies across the state and nation, whose contributions were essential in creating this comprehensive overview of gang activity in Texas.

What is the differences between Gang Tiers?

The state’s latest assessment was released 6 weeks ago, with gangs like Tango Blast, MS-13, the Mexican Mafia and the Latin Kings all ranking as tier 1 gangs. The assessment is based in part on the number of members in the gang, their level of violence and criminal activities, along with their relationship with Mexican crime cartels.

The state of Texas ranks Barrio Azteca, the Crips and Bloods, along with the Bandidos, as tier 2 gangs.

In recent years, Barrio Azteca has fallen from being a tier 1 gang to tier 2 because of a weakening threat, its relationship with the deteriorating Juarez Drug Cartel and the encroachment of the Sinaloa Cartel in the Borderland.

Executive Summary

The key investigative judgments of this assessment are:
  • Gangs remain a significant threat to public safety in Texas.
  • Gangs in Texas continue their involvement in organized criminal activity throughout the state, committing violence and maintaining relationships with dangerous Transnational Criminal Organizations.
  • We assess that as many as 100,000 gang members are in Texas.
The most significant gangs in Texas are:
  • Tango Blast and associated Tango cliques (estimated 19,000 members),
  • Latin Kings (estimated 1,300 members),
  • Texas Mexican Mafia (estimated 4,100 members),
  • and Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) (estimated 500 members).
Tango
These Tier 1 gangs pose the greatest gang threat potential based on their cartel relationships, high levels of transnational criminal activity, level of committed violence, and overall statewide strength and presence.

Violence is often inseparable from gang activity.

Whether protecting criminal assets and territory, carrying out contractual obligations, initiating new members, or targeting other members, gang member violence places Texas citizens ina perilous position.

More than half of all tier-ranked gang members incarcerated within Texas Department of Criminal Justice prisons are serving sentences for violent crimes, including;
  • robbery (23 percent),
  • homicide (16 percent),
  • assaultive offenses (14 percent),
  • and sexual assault (6 percent)
Cartel and gang relationships remain steady.

Mexican cartels and Texas gangs work together to distribute drugs throughout the state, smuggle illegal aliens across the border, and  procure and move weapons to Mexico. Cartels sometimes reach out to gang members to commit violent crimes on both sides of the border. The relationships between certain gangs and cartels fluctuate based on cartel structures and cell alignments, gang alignment with specific cartels, threats or coercion, and familial ties. As long as illicit cross-border crimes are profitable, the relationship between cartels and gangs will continue.

 Partnerships between gangs continue across the state.

 Law enforcement reporting throughout Texas shows members of different, and sometimes opposing, gangs will work together to fulfill common criminal objectives. These collaborations are frequently a result of familial and neighborhood ties, hybrid gang memberships, and temporary mutually beneficial agreements. In addition, some violent rivalries remain in place in Texas, mostly between street gangs in concentrated areas, such as the Texas Chicano Brotherhood and Tri-City Bombers in the Rio Grande Valley. Other examples include the rivalry between the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang and Cossacks Motorcycle Club, which contributed to the May 2015 shooting in Waco that killed nine people. Their conflicts can result in the injury or death of innocent citizens,  particularly during violent altercations in public, such as drive-by shootings.

Gang members actively use social media to communicate, boast, and recruit.

 The  popularity of social media has not been lost on gang members, especially with younger generations. Gangs use social networking and video-sharing websites as platforms to brag, recruit, and antagonize rival gang members, while mobile messaging applications are used by gang members to communicate. These include encrypted messaging platforms whose use by gang members challenges law enforcement agencies’ ability to investigate and collect criminal intelligence information.

    1. Tango Blast is more of a prison association-type gang rather than one that fits the standard definition. They have members from numerous other gangs that maintain those connections once they get out. Just shows they're really all about the money.

    3. Done time in the 90's in Texas . All the Mexicans hang together with their home town. Most of those groups like that answer to what I thought was tier 1 groups , Azteca's . Mexican mafia and Texas syndicate . The Houston people hung together . Told me its just sort of a tango . Made me think it was slang for a group that hung together because of geography was called . San Antonio was the same . Rio Grand valley "Valluco's" . In recent years I hear of Tango Blast.
      On the John B. Connally unit at that time they went after any Mexican that came from west Texas unless he was affiliated with MM or TS .
      Since then I hear of Tango Blast out of Houston . Know one kid that hasn't done time that's one of them . Knew of him traveling up to Chicago on drug related business . Dont know about in Houston but they are
      esquina's for the Texas syndicate in prison . All that being said . The real deal is they are all pieces of shit . Its hard to say one is better or worse than others . Any of them think they are powerful enough they get worse . In a gang many will do things that they would be afraid to do otherwise . Groups make cowards bolder .

    9. 7:17 Yea Pendejo but they were kicking it with TS to some extent . Everybody from san Antonio would turn out if the 13 13 had a beef with anybody . The valley tended to lean toward the toward the cuernos . When did they form ? the word blast has been added in recent years . Ask your daddy maybe he remembers . Saw a LK teem up with a TS . Ts hit a guy in the head with jack mack in a pillow case while he slept and Lk through a blanket over his head . Took his ear off. Sonny what ever you believe the rules are you need to remember , there are always exceptions and variables .The mexicles were prevented from getting a foot hold . They all went after them , especially a the TS . La unida was defiantly in the TS corner . Things change so I couldn't say now . Kido you probably know how it is now better than me .

  2. Gang threat and law enFORCEment. Expensive expensive and big tax payer funded billions dollar budgets.

    Prevention and addressing the root of the problem is the cheaper and effective way, BUT will not feed those big ENFORCEMENT budgets.

    Without a big and real gang threat these budgets will evaporate.

    The government must always nuture the enemy (both internal and external) to scare the sheep to believe that THIS is the only way to go!

      Until your money tree blooms, we (society) have to pay good money for brave people to do the job of apprehending, convicting & supervising the punishment of these serious criminal. Then you can cover the expense of nurturing each at risk child so they stay out of gangs, state & federal prisons and then we won't have to be burdened with these fake expensive jails, bullet resistant vests, or whatever else you see as useless. As a bb reader it should be clear what American would look like without dedicated police, judges and jailers with integrity. It would be Mexico!

    3. the federal money tree blooms for the good ol' texas boys, they use the federal money to develop and nurture their troubled youth, then come up with "the results" blaming the newborn mexicans for getting born baaad, no mamen.
      most US born mexicans get corrupted since kindergarten making most of them speak mostly only english and uprooting them and creating a growing distance from their parents, they grow believing in their superiority until they end in prison, then they cry all day and night for the mamases and papases they grew used to despise.

      FYI: I do not propose abandoning law enforcement. It is a necessity BUT it is NOT the solution AND it should NOT be our strategy to win.

    5. @1:20 The root of the problem is cultural. Kids growing up being taught to get theirs no matter what, narcos being held as fighting the good fight against the government (in some cases), etc. The cartels themselves act very much like old tribal groups fighting for territory, holding their top killers up as heroes of the tribe.

    6. 6:37the problem is there are PROFITS IN CORRUPTING ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WILL LEND THEIR ASS TO CORRUPTION, and the experts in government always know where they are going to get their next government dollar, their lawmakers will make sure to attach some pork barrel to every little piece of legislation in exchange for their vote selling, if you stop for a minute and think, who is teaching these young kids their BS?

    1. I would have to disagree with that perspective. Gangs in the US are a product of senseless behavior. An unnecessary engagement with no merit due to the endless opportunities to better oneself here in America.
      Where the opportunities in Mexico are harder to achieve but doable.
      America is a world of opportunities. How one achieves it depends on ones desire and sacrifice.
      Actually, this achievement can be done anywhere in the world regardless of circumstances.

    7. And a lot of them probably have antisocial personality disorders. Which means they are sociopaths, psychopaths, and during adolescence, would have qualified for a diagnosis of conduct disorder. Conduct disorder (CD) is a mental disorder diagnosed in childhood or adolescence that presents itself through a repetitive and persistent pattern of behavior in which the basic rights of others or major age-appropriate norms are violated. These behaviors are often referred to as "antisocial behaviors."

    8. @4:17 in Texas there is a thing called the death penalty my homie from Cali. Kill a rapist or pedo here and your ass is toast. If Cali had the same shit I, bet you wouldn't be talking smack.

  20. aren't most Tango Blast 'gangs' just loosely associated thugs/drug dealers that have each others back more so than a gang in the traditional sense?

    Everything I've read and seen about them.. Sure I guess it is a gang but it doesn't really seem like it. No leader, orders are not given, easy to get in and out etc...

    Interesting though... Since they are having success in recruitment wouldn't surprise me to see a 'gang' like this pop up in another state.

  21. These guys are whats wrong in texas. Undisciplined everyone can join no command structured gangs. Most of the times the cartels or their people get robbed of material this are the guys behind it. Cant be trusted and some of these gangs let rapists join.

    1. They do allow rapists to join Tango. I saw gangland and two of the gang members speaking about the gang were convicted rapists.

      I was surprised but with no real leader or constitution what do you expect? They are more just a bunch of criminals who have each others back than a gang IMO.

      Still, they outnumber the other gangs by so much in prison it is pretty obvious they are the strongest. There is power in numbers when it comes to prison gangs.

  22. Alot of independent dealers out in the valley who sell product to gangs out in Texas.
    Golfos purchase mota and coke from michoacanos; whom they purchase from south america.
    Golfos also purchase coke from Sinaloa whom they also purchase from michoacanos.
    Too much reselling
    It all depends on factions too all different contacts and etc.

    Zetas I suppose have no treaty or negotiations with Sinaloa or michoacanos, so who are the buying from? Independent contacts all over central n South America???

    2. Wow . That guy with the tattooed is something else. A normal person could shoot him dead and a jury would probably all want to shake his hand. Really , what jury would convict you unless you were a gang member ?

    3. Siempre lo dicho que las Golfas en Tamaulipas representan el CDG pero cuando los encierran en Texas muchos de ellos son "Tangos, Paisas,EME,etc." hay una canción del CDG en Youtube llamada "El Ojos" y veras lo que digo en esa canción dice la relación que tienen los sicarios del CDG con las pandillas que operan en Texas.

    4. Is Cherry y acido still alive?

      Delete
    5. Well i think the valley exports more sicarios (excluding el paso) than any other city on Texas. One because the slang on both sides of the border are the same and two theres alot more family ties between the valley and its mexican counterpart cities. Alot of youth are easily corrupted to join CdG with the famous narco rap popular among the newly arrival paisa colonias in the valley (Las Millas, Lopezville, little Mex, el gato, las milpas and many other paisa colonias).

    1. There are too many regions in Texas with different mentalities to be united. Tejano gangs are like a scaled down version of the Mexican cartels. They group together by their region most of the time. Barrio Aztecas control the West, TS control the Austin area and some parts of the DFW. Texas La Eme control San Antonio and parts of the valley. HPL controls Beeville down into most of the valley. Raza Unida has turf in the DFW. PRM and Mexicles are mostly Mexican nationals located in the valley. Then of course you have the Tangos who reside all over the state. Even within the Tangos you have division according to area code. The only Tangos that are considered Tango Blast are the ones from the four horsemen which are Dallas, Ft Worth, Austin and Houston. All the others are just Tangos. They will all come together under the same banner if one is attacked by another gang.

  28. Do some research for the guy that said in Texas we pretty much abuse federal aid.
    Texas puts in more than what is given, unlike other states.

    2. Dear 5:40 NO! not folks that know better. When I bought a home in a little dusty border town I wondered WTF am I doing here? It was nothing like my posh surroundings elsewhere! A super walmart was the highlight of the little town. BUT man was I stupid. It's the people who are special. Turns out Texas has beautiful places to live and visit, and the people are the same everywhere. They are the most friendly, helpful, charitable, good people that the U.S. has to offer. I was astounded. and told everyone. When Harvey struck the world got to see for their eyes what Texas Strong means. I love Texans.

      Texas has 100k gang members. they are an anomaly, out of 29M. If people hate Texas they are being prejudice because to go there, live there, work there tells the true tale, no finer people live anywhere. shitty weather though jaja)

    3. Just went through San Angelo yesterday. At the WalMart on Sherwood Way someone actually paid 2 have a billboard erected. It says : Pray for Florida. Normally you see these messages in front of churches. I thought it was interesting considering that no profit was being made there. Texans are some of the coolest people I've met. Very helpful as well. - Sol Prendido

    4. That is a great story, thanks for sharing. I learned to find my inner Walmart self and loved that it was 24/7 open for business. texans love their walmart, you will drive by this tiny ton and wham, up from the fields, there she is, a dam walmart superstore. I renamed the 90 hwy which I drive flying into san antonio to the border and into Mexico I named it "The walmart highway"

      I was able to gain super ground fast when establishing my foundation in Mexico because of Texans.
