US Soldiers — Training for the Gangs

I was having a conversation with a friend the other day who suggested US Soldiers were often gang-members who would then take that training back to the streets.

The story linked below is of a different ilk. US soldiers freelancing for the Zetas (in fact undercover DEA agents). Now things went badly for these guys, but you have to wonder how wide spread this practice is given that the suspects were in the process of recruiting from within the ranks.
