So if the working theory is that the CIA or basically intelligence networks 'manage' drug trades and money launder through prisons then they did indeed create these gangs to do their dirty work.
So who is really in control.
Many people doing organized harassment have all indications of being in gangs.
So they do the intel networks dirty work as well.
Which essentially means none of the violence and crime is necessary and could be prevented.
If you weren't interested in making money and controlling the population that is.
