Venezuelan Gangs Have Reached NYC

A few years ago, I was shocked when I saw in our streets a bunch of odd-looking people on small motorcycles doing stunts in the middle of one of our main avenues in the city I used to live in. To top it off, I found out it was a homage to some dead guy who came in a funerary car. Go figure. It was a public farewell act to a gang member. A ritual burial. There were women I could identify as Santeria priestesses wearing necklaces and stuff on the back of pickup trucks, which is “forbidden” here, theoretically. All of this spectacle is out in the open, for the consternation of us, hard-working law-abiding citizens cruising peacefully through the streets with our families. Shots in the air, as if my wonderful tropical country was some dirt hole ruled by non-Christian warlords in some God-forgotten parts of the world.

This was the exhibition of primal behaviors that are against our respectful Catholic traditions. Mind you, I´m not the most religious guy around here; I´m a sinner like my next-door neighbor. However, I do feel respect for some stuff. I could see young women dancing the reggaeton, a barrios hip-hop version with dirty language, over the coffin. There are enough videos out there on the web of how these funerary and ritual burials are. The epitome of barrio culture degradation, to my eyes.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a group of guys doing the same stunts on a motorcycle…only that this time in the streets of New York City.

How in heaven was possible for these guys to reach there when not even a professional like myself can put together the 6-7K that going by foot to the US would cost? (Spoiler: Biden’s open border!)

What´s behind all this? How is such misbehavior even allowed? I´ve seen gangs in Quads and all types of small dirt bikes without licenses not allowed on the road. They perform stunts and sometimes even crash on incoming vehicles, and nothing seems to happen. This is abnormal, and it has to have a purpose.

There is something we have to be especially aware of as a prepper.

Once the delicate equilibrium, that sweet spot of the balance between civilization and chaos that keeps a society under control, gets lost, predators will get out of their caves, starving and looking for prey.

Sadly, I have seen enough of this in every place I have set my boots on.

I don´t know how things are up there with the police, but I have seen Spanish policemen getting their backsides beaten by illegals from Morocco. French police seem to be unable to cope with the thugs disguised as migrants, too.

Venezuelan gangs have arrived in New York City. (Here’s a short clip. You don’t need a login – just X out of the part where it says that.)

Seriously, this is no joke. How NYPD reacted to the street stunts is unknown to me. Mind you, these stunts are a way to declare territory. “This is my street. I rule here”.

The only explanation I can find for these gangs spreading freely is this: there is a growing global threat disguised as political parties, offshore companies, and so on facades for members of organized crime. Crime, INC. This benefits from those activities, and clean the money they get.

The Causes of the problem

Our crisis led to widespread poverty, unemployment, and rampant crime in Venezuela. In my area, some neighbors commented that they had to go to buy groceries in groups of 10 or 15 people armed with batons. All of them on bicycles because there was no gasoline. One or two stood outside guarding the bikes, and the others would collect their list, exchanging places to go and pay with the fingerprint register once one of the first ones was already out to take his place. The uniforms patrolling the streets were very few.

The gang members have been traditionally linked to some high-profile crimes, including shootings, stabbings, robberies, and drug and weapons trafficking. No matter what country they are, it´s the same profile, accurate to almost every gang.

I can´t but wonder how this event is related to the 1980 Mariel convicts being shipped to Miami, courtesy of Mr. Castro. Murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, gang members. There were political victims too, for sure. However, this was an infamous action nevertheless that flooded Florida and transformed its social fabric forever.

You just don´t know who came into the US Southern Border. These guys are not your average lowlife, outlaw, dumb thug. Many of them have military weapons training, and they are mean. They have fought with teeth and nails against the police and armed forces, only blocks away from the Government Palace in Caracas. (July 2021 – The Luis Carlos Revete´s gang).

The poor official response, with policies like the creation of “peace zones” or “non-guns” zones in a country where civilian carry is forbidden and punished with 25 years of prison, is nothing but a bad, sad joke. Thugs don´t care a dime.

The first serious attempt to fight the gangs came in 2015; however, it was seriously questioned for reasons I can´t explain openly here. The ICC General Attorney has the documentation on his desk by now, though, and it´s just a matter of time for the truth to be out there.

As usual in the banana regimes, they blamed the “Colombia enemies”, and the political opposition. No surprises here. Organizations like Defiende Venezuela have plenty of things to say about the operations, also. There are more details on this link:

Brutal but Futile: Venezuela’s Anti-Gang ‘Mega-Operations’

There are reasons to be worried.

According to researchers, the very “philosophy” of the criminals seems to have changed. While formerly there were wars against rival gangs, there is now some degree of consensus and they are getting used to setting up agreements and pacts. They are getting more organized and disciplined. The gang history in Caracas began as early as the beginning of the 60s, once the government of Gral. Marcos Pérez Jiménez was finished and the socialist gangsters disguised as “democratic” parties took over the power, and agreed to alternate the execution of this power. The danger is so high with these new gangs, that the pragmatism and business-like decisions they exhibit make them a real threat to any society. They´re indeed a new school of crime, now roaming the streets in one of your major cities. Their leaders now easily reach the age of 40, which means the mutation they suffered worked in their favour, and their operational context is different.

Don´t underestimate these guys. Many of them may be illiterate, but they´re quite street-smart, indeed, and they can make managerial decisions with extreme accuracy, like using inside intel before executing an “express-kidnapping,” for instance.

Interestingly, they choose to “work” the markets that don´t contract with any sort of crisis, like food or drugs. Just read this link to see an outstanding example:

Venezuela’s gangs have been turned into armed capitalist enterprises (Part I)

Drugs are not the only criminal enterprise these gangs are involved with. The infamous sex workers trafficking is another activity they´re involved with. For some reason, the Peruvian “market” is always looking for “importing” “raw materials” from neighbouring countries. That operational mode changed, too as you can see in this link:

The New Humanitarian | How a Local Gang Used Venezuela’s migrant crisis to Forge a sex trafficking empire

Just so you can learn these thugs are not your average South American thug, there are pieces of evidence that the members of Tren de Aragua, the largest criminal organization in Venezuela (after the gooberment), were found living in Orlando, Florida. They changed identities and could enter Florida.

If you want a really good insight into the largest criminal gangs in South America, read this:

A Venezuelan Gang Crosses Biden’s Open Border 

I never expected our crime to reach the US.

Honestly, this has been for me a challenging article. I never thought that this kind of negative impact would be as serious as it seems to be, especially not in the US. I can imagine Peru Chile or Ecuador being under siege by these gangs. They have been places that have enjoyed a relative calm for years. However, the US?….it seems to me that researching this topic could fill an entire library.

How to protect ourselves against gangs, is hard to know. I am aware, though, of some common traits. Some of them have particular tattoos on a hand, or some other place where, for the untrained eye, it doesn’t mean anything. If the quality of the tattoo is something that seems obviously non-professionally done (not limitative), it’s probably an indication that something else is behind the surface with that person. At the current times, where there are tattoo shops everywhere, hardly anyone will leave someone untrained and with handmade “equipment” to pierce their skin in a place where they could easily contract hepatitis or something worse.

But please don’t allow yourself to be only worried about someone odd-looking. One of my ex’s relatives was kidnapped and almost killed by three young men who were well-dressed and kind-mannered. White Caucasian males, like someone you could find in any university or coffee shop. And they were very close to shooting him and left him at the side of the road. The only thing saving him was he was too large to fit in the trunk of his car and a bad battery that didn’t start, making them nervous. They threw his keys in a bush and ran away on foot.

Use common sense, fellows, and for those of you in NYC, try to open your eyes wide when you’re close to medium or large groups of small motorcycles.

Stay safe, keep tuned, and thanks for your sponsorship!


What are your thoughts?

Were you aware that Venezuelan gangs had reached the United States? Are you surprised? Have you run into any migrants from Venezuela? How do you think this will affect American safety?

Let’s discuss it in the comments section.

  • The situation in NYC is even worse than we thought.
    NYC mayor Eric Adams announced up to 15% cuts in all city services to defray the costs of immigrants into the city.
    And NYC is a sanctuary city.
    Have fun with that.

    • Just what in the world did he think would happen when he was such a ‘hero’ in welcoming them??!!
      Do these idiots think 10 steps ahead or have raised any children to know what happens when you give into one tantrum?

  • Keep your head on a swivel. Know what you are seeing. Carry a gun. Know how to use it extremely well. Practice. Practice. Practice makes you better able. Don’t hesitate when the time comes. Second sentence is very high in importance: Know what you are seeing.

  • So a bunch of people on motorcycles is what need to worry about? Sound like big time thugs to me. Lol! The biden regime is what we need to worry about, the people behind who are pulling on the strings, Obama and his clan are the greatest threats against us all. These idiots on bikes are nothing and can be taken away immediately if we can take down the hidden hand behind the false left/right dichotomy.

    • You´re right, but not so right. It is a countrywide known fact that some of the worst criminals were given fake IDs to make it there, and NOT ever come back under severe penalty. And many of them ride those small bikes because they have been widely and successfully used in cities like Bogota and Medellin by the hitmen. Anyway, it´s your call to be aware.

  • This is Obama’s 3rd bite at the POTUS apple…”hope and change”? Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6, so give these newbies a nice hot Yankee welcome and blast them. Just remember this : motorcycles are faster so you need to lead them by more.

  • Not surprised at all….the Venezuela crime gang Tren de Aragua had expanded their tentacles throughout the region…and with the porous US southern border…it was just a matter of time. Will be even easier going for them with the lenient policies on crime under the current presidential administration. They have even gained a minor role in the script of a new post-apoc. fiction adventure series production aimed at streaming TV.

    • Hey Peter whats up? Great to see you around. Good to hear you know what´s the deal with those guys. For those who have never seen a 50 bikes gang and how they act, it´s easy to mock.
      Once they have seen how they surround their prey or shoot, grab and run to disappear, it stops being funny.
      Take care!

  • The big Blue cities will fall in the coming financial disaster and be ruled by cartels until the CCP backed Democrat officials call in the UN…then it’ll get worse. If you’re still trapped in a large city your window to escape is closing rapidly.

  • Oh boy….another story about violent motor riders taking over fill in the blank….

    I wonder what happens when these Venezuelans intrude on turf claimed by 1%er MCs. There are several in NYC made up of combat-experienced nationalist motor riders who don’t take kindly to outsiders trying to muscle in on their lives.

    Does anybody seriously think that various non-government gang members in NYC are gonna let Venezuelans take over their revenue streams without a violent response?

    • Dear “fakename”
      I´m a motorcycle rider myself. I honestly would LOVE to see someone (whoever they are) wiping them out of the streets. I have my reasons.

  • The globalist controlled Democratic Party welcomes the Venezuelan gangs to New York with open arms and every other criminal gang that wants to come here and set up shop. It seems like the movie “Escape from New York” was prophetic.

    The Democratic Party is the most dangerous gang in the United States by far. Why is that? Because their goal is the total destruction of the country. So the more criminal gangs the better. Once this happens and the msm has done their job of blaming the designated scapegoats, they will present their solution to the problem they created. They are following a well thought out script using a strategy called Problem, Reaction, Solution. And what is their solution? A police state. But these police will be federal not local.

    Incredibly polls show that the Joe Biden puppet still has high approval ratings and has a virtual tie with Donald Trump. The power of the msm over people is truly amazing. How many of these people murdered, robbed, raped, assaulted, voted democrat? How many of these same people would still vote democrat, if they could after being victims of violent crime? Answer: The majority.

    The new Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson has a Transition Report/Blueprint for the continued destruction of the city of Chicago on the web site. A blueprint all of the democrat controlled cites like New York are following. Crime increased 38% in the first 4 weeks Brandon was in office. So criminals definitely approve of his election for mayor. The section on crime prevention in the report effectively neuters the police department. And of course wants to “increase restorative justice programs“. The report pushes open borders 100%, outlines a plan to make education completely worthless so children graduate with no reading, math or critical thinking skills, just a sense of entitlement and resentment. The education section does not provide a single metric to measure improvements in reading and math skills which are currently way below standards.

    Thank You Jose Martinez for this excellent and well researched article. The links you provided are very informative.

  • Just like gangs from every other country – Russia, Asia/East Asia, Caribbean, etc. Heck greased palms and focus on tax cuts/”permanent majority” allowed 9-11 to happen.

    • Just going to stick your head in the sand and pretend the border crisis does not exist?
      Ignoring all the problems the Biden admin has created is not going to make them go away.
      Unfortunately for us, many of the problems Biden has created are here to stay. There is nothing anyone can do to fix them, they are that big and bad.

  • I learn so much on here! I honestly would not think about gangs on bikes or atvs if I saw them.

    We travel across the country so this is enormously helpful thank you!

    • Dear Jennifo, their natural habitat is downtown major cities. They don´t go to smaller towns because they´re an easy target there. They use poor neighbourhoods to hide and do their things. I have received comments of Venezuelans up there in NYC identifying guys with tats and jewelry/colour combinations that come from prisons. They typically sit like a baseball catcher mostly in entrances and doorsteps. This allows them to watch without being noticed from a distance and spring back swiftly to run away or walk quickly to approach someone. Avoiding downtown and barrios is the best protection. It´s not like they´re going to hit a major highway in a 150cc bike. These are useful only for thick traffic in cities.
      Stay safe!
