FBI: 30.000 Gangs And 1.4 Million Active Gang Members In U.S.–Or Are These 2011 Figures?

The above is my version of title by Penny Starr at Breitbart.

Here’s what I posted in Comments following Ms. Starr’s report at Breitbart:

I’m not sure what the 2015 FBI Gang Threat Assessment figure is, but reporter [Penny] Starr should read the following 2011 FBI Gang Threat Assessment that stated the number then–6 years ago–to be “1.4 million active gang members” under “Key Findings” at

No way are there FEWER or the same number of gang members since 2011! I would suggest at least ANOTHER 400,000 to 500,000 additional gang members have entered the U.S.–legally and illegally–from Mexico since 2011. That would make today’s figure about 2 million active gang members.
