I just LOVE the racist bent some of these reporters give!

The fact of the matter is that businesses around the area have NO LOITERING policies because they chase legitimate patrons away. This also goes for your casual skateboarder, gang, folk too. So don't think that "Hispanics" are singled out.

This article is pure baloney and does NOTHING for anyone's cause, but only stirs up hatred amoung the locals.

It's like the incident on U.S. 1 they made a big racist deal about few years back concerning "daylaborers" and THEIR 'harassment'.

It just so HAPPENS that those so called "daylaborers" were not only LOITERING on the property, BUT they were not using restroom facilities. They urinated and defecated in public. They did NOT use trash recepticles that are provided, but strewed their trash around. And LAST were drunk in public NEAR the business.

Those officers had a perfectly LEGITIMATE REASON for charging and checking ID.
It is what they would do for ANY person doing the same thing.

The fact is that those that are not here legally, don't want to get caught, so they cry RACISM; like any other criminal.

It is NOT that we don't have LEGITIMATE employment offices to go to. These men do NOT have to stand on street corners and ask for work. MAYBE it's just they can't get work at a legitimate facility because they don't have the proper documents. If they don't; they don't have the right to work here either.

Oh, and by the way people; how would YOU feel if the "daylaborer" some guy hired was drunk on the job and building YOUR house?

I think they should drive around in buses and check every one on sight! And send them to Guantanamo instead of Mexico. They are roving bands of criminals on our streets. Here that, Homeland Security?

i commend these police. if you arent illegal or wanted by the INS then you have nothing to worry about. its not about racism, its about enforcing the laws! i dont care if people come here legally to work..hell, the mexicans work their asses off when they get jobs. they are probably the hardest working race in america at the moment..and i dont even like mexicans and ill give them that! but come legally...
