Tackling drug gangs operating on social media
Online interactions between gang members rarely involve formed sentences. Instead, they are conducted in codes that involve written text interspersed with emoticons, hashtags, numbers, special characters, photos, video and music clips. Think of these codes as the gang's shibboleth separating "in-group" members from "out-group" pretenders. Law enforcement agencies across the United States are expanding their capacities to police cyberspace and take on the growing threat posed by digital gangs and cybercrime.
