New Report Sees Gangs "Everywhere" In Mississippi

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — A new report commissioned by Governor Bryant shows that all 82 counties in Mississippi have a gang presence. Public Safety Commissioner Marshall Fisher says the top three gangs in the state are the Gangster Disciples, Simon City Royals, and the Vice Lords, all of which originated in Chicago. He adds that while there are gangs forming in prison it’s not where the majority of gang members get their start. The legislature is considering laws to clamp down on gang activity in the state by enhancing penalties for felonies committed by gangs.
