Where is the outrage from Black Leadership??????



Members of Latino gang charged with race-motivated crimes - Los Angeles Times (http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-gang17oct17,0,749576.story?coll=la-home-center - broken link)

By Ari B. Bloomekatz, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer 12:36 PM PDT,
October 16, 2007
Federal prosecutors today charged members of the Latino Florencia 13
street gang with racially motivated crimes against African Americans,
including several attempted homicides.

Authorities said the gang specifically tried to eliminate rival
African American gangs in South L.A. and the Florence-Firestone area
in an effort to "cleanse" the neighborhood. In doing so, they
mistakenly harassed and attacked innocent African American residents,
according to the indictment.

More than 60 members and associates of the Florencia 13 street gang
were charged with federal racketeering and drug charges.

"In their attempt to intimidate African Americans in the community,
they targeted innocent citizens," U.S. Attorney Thomas P. O'Brien
said.

O'Brien said the arrests were the result of a nearly three-year
investigation into the gang that culminated in federal indictments at
the end of the summer.

The arrests come as both local and federal officials have launched a
crackdown on race-motivated gang crime across L.A. Authorities have
already filed charges against a different Latino gang in the Harbor
Gateway area accused of crimes against African Americans, including
the slaying of a teenage girl last year.

Gang crime has been dropping across Los Angeles over the last few
years, but Police Chief William J. Bratton and other authorities have
expressed concern about isolated instances of racially charged gang
violence both on the streets and in L.A. County jails.

According to prosecutors, the defendants are named in two indictments:
one that charges violations of the federal Racketeer Influenced and
Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and another on charges of federal
narcotics trafficking violations. The indictments were returned by a
federal grand jury Sept. 27 and were unsealed this morning,
authorities said.

Have you lived in L.A.? I have. L.A. has been a knot of racial tension for a long long time, this is nothing new for the Black People of LA. So this latest political agenda doesn't have the shock value in L.A..

This article has no mention of illegals, there are many legal citizens in these gangs. Florencia 13 is comprised of many generations of mexicanos and is tied to the Mexican mafia.

The point of this article in my eyes is that the L.A. government has lost control of it a long long time ago.

Because no one cares if one minority attacks the other. Only if White people attack a minority is it important, because the majority is keeping the little man down. A much more sensational story than inter-minority fighting. Besides, they can't get anything politically out of it.

Note that the so-called 'Black leadership' apparently does not care either------unless; they are sick and tired of the Bloods and Crips fighting one another so 'let' the Latino gangbangers 'clean house', as it were.
