The city attorney filed a lawsuit last month seeking damages from nine imprisoned leaders of the gang, who allegedly profited from “street taxes” from residents while in prison.

Among those arrested, the LAPD identified Pedro Sanchez-Limon, also known as Hector Rodriguez, as the gang's leader and major supplier. They said Alberto Blanco, also known as "El Moro," was his right-hand man, and Jamie Chacon Diaz, also known as "Archie," was the gang's money collector. Abel Flores, also known as "Barbs," was identified as the gang's chief street enforcer. They face multiple charges of selling drugs and conspiracy.

Sanchez-Limon and Diaz had been deported previously but reentered the U.S. illegally, authorities said, and Blanco had been deported twice. Detectives said the gang leaders have long criminal histories

under the circumstances [gang leaders, deported twice], i'd vote for execution. the reality is that this is probably a waste of time and money. the lawsuit will be thrown out, the parasite scum will be back on the streets [ l.a. not mexico] and the LEGAL residents of l.a. will continue to be terrorized. it's sad.
