What's so disturbing is that these gangs are growing in numbers and power -- both behind bars and on the streets, according to both Dozer and Graham.

"I don't think we're overwhelmed other than the fact that we don't have enough numbers," Graham said. "We know what we're facing but we just don't have the staffing. The Chief is trying to address that and get more people into our gang unit."

The suspects' next court appearance is scheduled for July 18.
