Gang infiltration on Submarines not likely

M.E. has always considered the navy Submarine Force an elite unit, and the FBI's 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment – Emerging Trends report notwithstanding, that opinion has not changed.

Gang infiltration of the military continues to pose a significant criminal threat, as members of at least 53 gangs have been identified on both domestic and international military installations ...
No one is talking about the A-Gang or Blue crews here. The FBI indicates infiltration of units like Army Special Forces (by East Side Longos), the Air Force and Marines (by Warlocks), the Coast Guard (by Red Devils) , and the Navy (by the Peckerwoods), to name only a small sampling.

According to the FBI report, several U.S. gangs now "advise members without criminal records to join the military for necessary weapons and combat training." Military deployments, in the event, end up placing gang members alongside other members of the armed forces on active duty.

Gang members within the U.S. military has resulted in "incidents of weapons theft and trafficking," the FBI warns, which "may have a negative impact on public safety or pose a threat to law enforcement officials."

Interestingly, is this news from TSSBP: PED [personal electronic devices] Owning SubPac Submariners SOL? What, if any is the connection?

Submarines are always silent and strange.
