Back then we did not have that sort of crap going on...........never mind that SS and Takoma Park were essentially blue collar. Our few 'Hispanics' back then tried (and usually succeeded) to assimilate into American society.

Needless to say, it's a totally different game here in 2008. Montgomery County is a mess (and that is being nice about it.) More and more people are falling victim to random illegal alien crimes. Just a month ago, they arrested an illegal for a home invasion spree in which an elderly lady got killed inside her own home.

You can't imagine how bad I feel for parents raising children in an area where these scumbags run free.It would be impossible for me to live like that.I think if we were to start hanging people like this ms13 member from every fence post along the border and left them there until they were nothing but sun bleached bones that MIGHT slow a bit of this crap down.WHEN are the American people going to unite and say "enough is enough".

What do gangmembers have to do with Hispanics assimilating?

In fact, those in gangs are probably a little too assimilated into the bad parts of American culture.
Otherwise, with your logic, the Crips, Bloods, Aryan Brotherhood, Nazi Lowriders, KKK, Hell's Angeles, Mongols, Wah Ching, Folk Nation, Vice Lords, (on and on) are not "trying to assimilate" either.

I was making a point that most of the Latinos from Mexico and points further south back then (who were considered White anyway) were not known for starting crap and were trying to be good Americans.

And plenty still are. This is not about Latinos, its about gangmembers who happen to be Latino.
There are plenty of gangmembers of any ethnicity doing horrible crimes in the world.
