International Gang MS-13 Was Born in Los Angeles: Crime Expert Steven Dudley

September 19, 2020

“There are a lot of common misunderstandings or myths about street gangs,” crime expert
Steven Dudley told Inside Edition Digital. In particular, the group Mara Salvatrucha-13, or MS-
13. MS-13 has received a lot of attention in the media, and not every depiction has been
accurate. According to Dudley, the group “is a very useful political tool for people who want to
vilify immigrant populations.” Dudley is the author of the recent “MS-13: The Making of
America's Most Notorious Gang.”
