BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): We have an issue now that's a national issue, and I saw it up close and personal, you guys were kind enough to let me go out with the gang unit. But MS-13 -- as much as you're attacking it, that threat is not over.

PATRICK RYDER (LONG ISLAND POLICE COMMISSIONER): We always got to keep our eye on it. We had seven -- six murders in the last year, we just recovered a body about two weeks ago, a 21-year-old male that was killed by MS-13.

KILMEADE: So it's still out there.

RYDER: Absolutely.

KILMEADE: And what they're preying on is working class communities. 

RYDER: That's correct. 

KILMEADE: When people say that if they were preying on upper class communities there would be more of a response, what do you tell them? 

RYDER: Well, you got to look at where the bodies are being found, where the the violence is found, we find that most of the time it's that working class communities. A lot of these individuals are day laborers that go out, they work during the day, and then they’re doing the gang stuff at night.
