A member of the Honduran street gang, 'Mara Salvatrucha', poses for a picture at the National Penitentiary in Tamara, February 14, 2006. Violent street gangs terrorizing Honduras will talk to the new government about ending years of bloodshed, but first want random arrests of tattooed suspects to end.
