Anybody else notice that there's never any outcry from the "Community Leaders"?

But there's always a crying Mom, "MY baby would NEVER join any Gang"!!!!

Not a word from "Nane" Alejandrez, founder and executive director of Barrios Unidos. A simple "I love my grandson and he will always be my family, but this shows you where the gang life will lead and it is never good" would have sufficed. Some BU folks must be disappointed he didn't get probation or "counseling" through their in-house services that purport to rehabilitate such criminals. Looks like BU's curriculum of teaching gang-affiliated youth that they should be proud aztec warriors isn't working out so well. Non-profits may need a performance review to see if what comes out of them is worth how much goes in.

BU has had good intentions but if this is what can fall through the cracks, it's time for some better boards.

I said you need to get some nice touches to this place, not "get some tattoos on your face"

On the positive side, we won't be needing a lineup the first time he re-offends.

How about the sign on the front of BU that says, "Immigration-free zone"

Nothing like advertising the flouting of Federal Immigration Law.

Look at what it got us.

Nane is corrupt and so is his off spring. Why this group has not been closed down or bombed by his own people is because Satan is protecting this loser and his group. Cops must be behind this loser. Sheriff's too. DA... most who follow this group on Topix, know that it has come out throughout the years, that this group is fake. A front. Take this group out of existence. They shame their race and Cesar Chavez.

No one will oppose this group and their "leaders" they are the darlings of the left, Non violent resource center and RIP, Scott Kennedy. Scan topix and people mention rapists on staff, drugs, counselors betraying gang members to other gang members, ie setting them up, adultery, child molesters. This is why the gangs are still raging out of control, there is no real help for them.
