If you affiliate yourself with gang members, if you harbor them in your home for however long, you get what you get. If you don't like the sweeps don't let them in your homes. I have to wonder what parent in their right mind would have children and associate with gang members. Why not just point a gun and kill them right now? If this is what it takes, so be it.

If these things did happen and I am not saying they did not, then those involved should be held accountable.

Of course had the family members of the person the police had been looking for had not broken the law in the first place by obviously aiding them by not turning them in the first place, the whole matter would not have happened to begin with

I quote the article

"a deputy told them they were looking for a family member who did not live at their home. " end quote

Though the article does state the family member did not live at the house it would be silly to think that they had never been at the house.

Just wanted to tell the sheriffs office that their doing an outstanding job.

Most people do not realize what you brave individuals come across and deal with in the line of duty.

They only see what the oh so accurate(not) news channels talk about.

Again, Great Job and Be Safe Out There!

God Bless!

The Gang activity came to a slow down! It takes this type of operation to put these criminals, who may be trying to convince your children to join their gang at this very moment, on the defence rather than the offence. You people in Castroville have a gang problem, this comes with the territory. What is the message, "Don't allow gang members in your house, the police may have your house under surveillance"

Perhaps can we sue all gang members and their families for no longer having the freedom to move about Monterey County for fear of being gunned down by some trigger happy punk who is "a good boy with no known gang ties?" What about our bills for treating our young children for stress induced illness, brought on by these same god boys? LULAC, if you are not part of the problem, then be part of the solution.

I am glad that these folks were inconvenienced, or prehaps even roughed up a bit. Maybe this is what it takes for family members to put pressure on their relatives or friends to halt their illegal activities. I would rather they were inconvienced than read about another murder of some innocent bystander by gaqng violence. It is high time that the immediate family begin to pay a prie for their children's, behavior. These folks will recieve no sympathy from me, nor I suspect the community at large. Clean your house people and you need not worry about this. Our community will not be inconvenienced by your protestations of "He wasn't involved in gangs" well guess what, If SWAT is at your door, you'd best open your ears and eyes and get a clue. By the way ICE should come in directly behaind SWAT

We need more unannounced gang sweeps by law enforcement. Salinas, Watsonville, Santa Cruz and others - are you paying attention?? This sends a clear message not only to the gangsters, but to their aiding and abetting families, as well. And I agree - send in ICE along with the SWAT team. Get rid of all illegals and their anchor spawn, who are bankrupting our great state.

They have the Right because they have the BADGE and the BACK UP of a GUN and they are bigger than most 80 year olds and women

Gangs == guns
even a 80 year old can pull the trigger, to protect her "little darling" from the police

Anyone in a known Ganghouse is a potancial threat, regardless of age, if they harbor a know Banger
and they have small children in the house
it is THEM that put the children in danger
it is THEY that should be charged with child endangerment

Good job police, Thanks for cleaning up!

Latino rights group, WHAT about OUR rights?
we the normal folks have the right to be protected
from the social scum, if the police steps on a few toes doing it, so be it!

i couldn't agree with you more. i only wish more people felt this way. it is a very simple solution to a very real problem that has gotten out of hand for far too long. the authorities ask for answers, well boss, here it is. now run with it!

maybe these people will turn in their gang member relations the next time they come around. hiding them will only lead to more gang raids.

There is a reason a guy is on parole and it isn't because he is a model citizen. No more parole keep them locked up solves more than one problem! As for the sweeps let's do more then maybe there is half a chance we can go to dinner without worrying about becoming collateral damage to gang related violence.

I only got 12 felonys before , why they do me like that.
I called the lulac and then some vato came and told me what to say.
That is fricken hilarious! But seriously like most of the comments: IF YOU ARE ASSOCIATED OR HAVE RELATIVES THAT ARE "BANGERS" THEN THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT. I am so sick and tired of anytime something happens it becomes "racist" LULAC give me a break! I guess when the white people become the minority(soon) then will they become the victims and sue everyone? I think then the double standard will not apply.

i'm on parole and i am not a gang member or a drug dealer. i have been stopped time and time again by seaside police and the gang task force just because they know i'm on parole. one time i was outside talking to my mother and my 7 year old son when the gang task force stopped their car in the middle of the street jumped out and slammed me to the ground. my mom started yelling that i was doing nothing but talking to her and my son. at that time OFFICER WEST advised my mother to shut the F___ up. i told my mother to leave so my son doesn't have to watch the pigs work. they then took my cell phone and drove off. i had to call 911 and tell them that officer west took my phone. 5 minutes later he drove back and returned it. they need to stay focused on all these murders instead of cell phones that belong to average people. MAY ALL THE PIGS BURN IN HELL!
They only needed your phone for 5 minutes to record the Gang Banger and drug calls you have made lately. Thank You Officer West! All parolees should be searched everyday. You are banging man and they know it! If I knew who you were I would follow you around until you went to a gang house and turn your a$$ in, criminal!

you know everyone is always fasted to talk about the nexts but not fast to look in your back yard. you know if you read your book of life you would read what is really happening out there.maybe if people could just find a little time to pick up the good book with the lords word and pray for alot of those hurting and messed up people on drugs,gangs or what ever it may be. but to treat people the way they do is notak.it's not about gangs or what ever. it's about the way the officers handle things. you know no one knows what there kids are or how they turn out cause they always do what they do so don't say those gang or what ever. cause you never know it could be your kid's. who knows only GOD knows what were going to turn out to be he had are life planed for us but alot of us just do what we think is cool. maybe if we do GOD'S WORK it would be a better place for all of us. GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!!
