Every gang has a “Hood Day”. On June 10, 2009, The Rollin Sixties had their hood day in Studio City, which is more than 15 miles away from their dangerous borders. Somehow, someway the police heard of the affair and had a problem with it. Why? What the hell are they doing wrong? Who are they putting in jeopardy? I actually prefer these brothers at a club celebrating, than reeking havoc on these L.A. streets.
Have you seen the movie Minority Report? Well, in that futuristic-science fiction-movie, potential criminals were arrested before they actually committed a crime. It was called thought crime. I relate this movie to the Jonnies raiding a gang party. The only crime that was committed was marijuana smoking. Yes, weed! City of Los Angeles spent the manpower and taxpayer money to capture men committing misdemeanor crimes. L-O-Muthafuckin-L. The New World Order new stations (Fox/NBC) say that 17 out of 400 people were arrested. I’m not a math major, but that’s 23%. With California laying off teachers and closing hospitals in a severe budget crisis, this is a complete waste of money. 400 minus 17 is 383, 383 free innocent people had their night ended unjustly. The report also claims 0 (ZERO) people were arrested on gun charges.
The City of L.A. justifies this round-up on the grounds of the “gang injunction”. Gang injunctions are “controversial” at best. In 1997, the case of People ex rel Gallo v Carlos Acuna challenged the constitutionality of gang injunctions. Lower courts had held that provisions disallowing gang members to associate with one another violated their first amendment right to free assembly. See where I’m comin from? This shit is not right. It’s not right like the 25+ police units on Crenshaw from the 105 to the 10 freeway isn’t right. Its not right like racial profiling isn’t right. Where is the ACLU when you need them?
I don’t condone gang violence, but I do condone human rights. I don’t condone black on black crime, but I do condone the rights of American citizens.
