This video should scare the hell out of you. This is not an actor or some crazy cholo gang member. Rene is an articulate and highly intelligent individual and represents a treat more dangerous then the Crips, Bloods, or MS-13. The Mexican Mafia is the most dangerous gang in the U.S.A. It is a growing form of organized crime controlling thousands of Sureno gangs. It is tied to ruthless international drug cartels. We should all be thankful that Rene has defected and is sharing the secrets of the Mexican Mafia with Law Enforcement.

Rene Enriquez just released a new book titled: URBAN STREET TERRORISM: The Mexican Mafia and the Surenos. The book details the current activities of the EME and their army of soldiers, the Surenos. It is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in contemporary organized crime, Sureno migration, and the transnational implications of the EME. Urban Street Terrorism is currently available from: and Police and Fire Publishing offers a significant discount off the cover price to sworn law enforcement/corrections personnel and sworn criminal justice professionals.
