I don't have any problems with Latinos. I have problems with illegal latinos and gang bang'n latinos, and actually all illegals and gang bangers regardless of race.....

They're all scum and/or law breakers!
I posted a my friend. Most of my post was aimed at the guy/girl that kept saying "I just want to get away from all this damn spanish!" heh, which I found to be funny...

Good Day

I must admit,I'm a little surprised to know that there are so many hispanic gangs in the Atlanta area,with the African American population there,but that's not to say anything about one race over another.In truth crime is colorless,even when it comes to gang activity.I was just wondering though just how severe the problem is there though,Do people actually fear to walk the streets,that they might be mugged or beat up?

Default MARTA is very gang friendly

MARTA has been cutting bus routes and frequencies for some time dealing with the tax short falls. While LEGAL citizens have less bus services, MARTA adds routes to areas that have MAJORITY ILLEGAL CRIMINAL MEXICANS. Not all that long ago, MARTA added a route which helps Mexican gang members have better access to Phipps Plaza and Lenox Mall. The route runs between Lenox Station and Plaza Fiesta.

Plaza Fiesta management encourages criminals/illegals to shop at their mall. They sponsor rallies that condone criminal behavior of Mexicans and other illegals. When the garbage (i.e. pro-Mexican) organizations in Atlanta want to have a rally in Atlanta to promote criminal activities, Plaza Fiesta will gladly host the events. Plaza Fiesta even has stores that specialize in selling gang clothing and accessories like the store "Cholo's Wear" (cholo is Spanish for gangster).

Since so many criminal Mexicans use MARTA, MARTA spends thousands and thousands of legal tax payer's money to translate all their printed materials in the predominant language of the criminal element that uses their system and not of any others. They also have all the automated voice announcements on the buses, stations, and rail cars in English and the language of the ILLEGAL Mexicans but not of the language of many other people who come to this country legally.

I saw the Gangland episode about the hispanic gangs in Atlanta and the main reason the cops had such a hard time dealing with these gangs is because the gang culture was so brand new to Georgia.

Even now about 10 years later gang activity in Georgia is a far younger problem than in other cities it's size or smaller out west like Denver, Phoenix, or anywhere in California. Alot of midwestern towns like St Louis or Minneapolis have been dealing with it for a good while now.

And ofcourse Chicago. Chicago is the gang motherland many major gangs out in L.A. or even New York had their orgins in Chicago, where there was a major gang problem even before Al Capone showed up there in the 1930s.

It's funny this subject came up because just the other day I was looking at Youtube videos of Atlanta that I was led to by a City Data thread. Anyway while checking out related videos I stumbled onto these videos made by gangs calling Buford Hiway their home. I really wasn't surprised at first because I had seen before where different gangs used Youtube to glorify their gangs (which shows how smart these guys are to advertise themselves where the police or anybody can see) but what did surprise me was the number of gangs.

I was not seeking mexican or latino gangs it just so happen that all the ones I ran into on youtube were. Here are links to the videos I found.

Oh, and those easily offended by language may want to cut down the sound on these videos.



YouTube - WS18ST W.S.G & C.L.S ATLANTA 404.




As you can see it's here. Just how entrenched remains to be seen.

Much of that might be due to the fact that US law often has no teeth or is very selectively enforced.

And to answer your question, Atlanta does not have alot of hispanics in the city limit. There is only 50,000-60,000 hispanics in the city limits. And by the way, that was racist remark what you said about latinos. Not all latinos are like that.
