Tell me you are kidding. A detective keeps his job being a gang member... LK's are nation wide that is not local only... very dangerous and drug involved.

You would be surprised..........
But a lot of these gangs are self created, not true gangs.
Only sets, I know a lot of ppl from Holland my aunt also use to live there, In my area there are what is calls sets, that claim to be gangs. No true gang has came and sworn anyone in, if that is the case in Holland, be afraid. The so called gangs are terrible, but the real gangs can be very dangerous, if something goes down that is not likes they will call on their members from other areas, and bring in so many people, you thought you had it bad....omg....

My issue with most of this, on another post a woman from Holland came in talking about her tax dollars going toward a funeral, I was thinking how horrible she was to say that, a lot of these self riotous people acting like it isn't in their community as well, these white children doing just as bad under their nose.
It is not only the Mexicans.
When I went to H. S the drugs were always more plentiful at the rich schools, and I am not talking the drugs you smoke, it was the powder. While the parents were talking horrible about my school, that wasn't a poor school, middle class.
Just because you are rich, don't mean that you don't have the same problems. You just have the money to hide what has happened.
aids has no name, drugs have no name nor dose a bullet.
I understand how someone can become racist, my aunt came back to Muskegon with a racist attitude, she couldn't get a job to save her life in Holland, if you cant speak Spanish, you cant work, yet Hispanic ppl cant speak English.
BUT, our government is allowing this, and people can only do what is allowed in this situation, as Sharon pointed out, our much needed jobs are going to Mexico, and why???
cheaper labor!
When are we going to take a stand, stop fighting each other and make our government take just as good care of us, as they do other countries?
now take 1 minute and think about this, look at how hard you are working right now, and barely getting by.
If a country that had good health care, good jobs(better than what you have) and a much better life , education for you and your children offeren you a way out.
you come live here, tax free for 7 years, get freee medical, free food, low income houseing on us, and you can also work...just come..and we will take care of you.
and you know that your children are sick, starving, need a education.
you know it is the best thing for your family...
WOULD YOU DO IT?
so, can we really bleme them, for taking our goverment up on OUR DREAM, of the white picket fence, ect ect...
lets point the finger at who it needs to be pointed at.
what did that movie say, if you build it, they will come?
JUST MY OPINION...and you know opinions are like ..........
not trying to offend anyone

Is your chief of police in Holland on the good side or the bad side? Someone needs to clean up that mess. It isn't even safe to go spend a day at the beach anymore. What happended to the good clean all american city that was there. I was surprised a couple years back at the tulip festival to find more hispanic foods than american.

Does anyone remember the movie Tremors? I think it was about giant worms, or something, but what made the biggest impact on me was a local who had made his home into an impenetrable fortress, complete with supplies and firepower.

Sounding pretty good right now.

Considering the tulip festival was formed to celebrate the Dutch history of the city of Holland, that is really something the city leaders need to think about for the food carts for next year.

You must not live here anymore, last summer the MinuteMen with the cooperation of the INS and local civic groups, raided gang neighborhoods in Holland and bus'ed all of them back to Latin America. In fact, the took a clue from the Eisenhower administration, and didn't just drop them at the border, but continued 500 miles past the border before releasing the gang members and their families.

No, you are thinking of the ones that jumped off the ship and drowned when Eisenhower did it. I'm not even sure a boat was an option this time, but they where careful to get them home (mostly) in one piece.

Now, they did distinctly tattoo their foreheads, so they would not be eligible for (legal) re-entry, which caused quite a stink, but I myself think it was tastefully done:
