this time there is a story from Germany, where a potential member of the "Gangster Disciples" was killed, sure that the military has always been a haven for some of the fringies.. but this has been reported a couple of times before, hope our police forces are prepared for the potential of military trained gang members.. compare this to the recent story about how much of our men with boots on the ground are representative of all groups.. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/07/28/eveningnews/main3107316.shtml?source=mostpop_story CBS) U.S. Army Sgt. Juwan Johnson got a hero's welcome while home on leave in June of 2004. "Not only did I love my son - but my god - I liked the man he was becoming," his mother, Stephanie ****rell, remembers. But that trip home was the last time his family saw him alive. When Johnson died, he wasn't in a war zone, he was in Germany. "He had finished his term in Iraq," his mother said. "I talked to him the day before his death. He said, 'Mom, I'm in the process of discharging out. I'll be out in two weeks'." On July 3, 2005, Sgt. Johnson went to a park not far from his base in Germany to be initiated into the 'Gangster Disciples,' a notorious Chicago-based street gang. He was beaten by eight other soldiers in a "jump-in" - an initiation rite common to many gangs.
