this is ridiculous! i dont think they are targetting immigrant communities!!! i think they are targetting communities where gangs persist.
and who are they targetting? thugs!!! if you an illegal, then make sure not to BE a thug, look like a thug. dont be tatted all crazy, dont wear baggy clothes, affiliate with other thugs/cholos, dont throw gang signs, dont fly colors, etc etc.

that way the thugs [and thugs with badges] leave you alone.

Moreover, read the headline: "Targeting Gangs Imperils Immigrant Communities." It doesn't say "targeting immigrant communities."

The more I come across this kind of "journalism", the more I'm becoming a firm believer that there are well organized, foreign backed, distinctly anti-American forces at work here.

Where exactly should the police be targeting gangs? Retirement communities? Country clubs?

One would think they should be targeting gangs in the areas gangs live and frequent. If they happen to be "immigrant" communities - well what does that tell you about said communities???
