"Several members of a ruthless Norteño street gang who are allegedly responsible for four murders, several attempted murders and assaults in San Jose are behind bars, the result of 1 1/2 year-long police investigation."

You are from San Jose, probably awarded Section 8 on my dime, not Harlem or Compton. You are simply a wanna-be, which makes you all worse than a real gangster hardened by a difficult life.

PS: Good job with the investigation and court. Get rid of the gangs and start supporting the upstanding Latino population (yes, the majority are good people, haters, just the gangs are like a barrel of bad apples).

It must be nice to actually have a proactive police force. This is something we in Santa Cruz County wouldn't recognize because the community activists, city council, and Board of Supervisors hold hands together and sing Kumbaya while trying to figure out ways to keep the PD from doing their job effectively.

I have much admiration for the law enforcement that choose to stay and work in this as_s backwards county...

"90 police officers descended on neighborhoods throughout the city,"...and then later reportedly went home to change their underwear.
I don't care how much police training you have, that would be bleapin' scary. Kudos to the police.

so who do the kids in the E/S W/S debate claim to represent? norteno, sureno, obama, clinton, mccain, paul, or nobody but their own desire to monopolize a public trust resource (waves)?

"The investigation into El Hoyo Palmas took a dramatic turn when three gang-bangers allegedly shot an innocent man as police watched. On March 30, 2007, members of an elite police special operations unit was tailing the gang members as part of the investigation when they allegedly shot Hernan Koba, a locksmith who had just finished helping a client, at least 12 times at close range."

You mean this poor guy had to die so the police could build their case. Is it me or does this sound f*&cked up?

Your tax dollars at work. So what happens when that person has to be someone you know, or someone in your family?

Mediocre people do mediocre policing.
