Local law enforcement are not set up to deal with the increased violence and intimidation coming their way.
They say they want information, but there's no easy way to foward information.
Take the Monterey County Sheriff's website. No where on it is there even a contact email or somewhere that people can submit anonymous tips to help stop the violence in our communities.
The same is true of local police department web pages. This morning there was a woman obviously soliciting at Del Monte and Playa in Seaside, but their police website has nowhere to submit crime tips.

It is a simple problem, put them to "Death" and they will be silenced and forgotten....

There is a simple solution---post pictures and address of all gang members on the internet. That way we can all keep an eye on them. I have no idea if my neighbors are gang members. If you keep them undercover, they keep growing. Bring them out into the open, so we all know who is who. If they start shooting up each other's house, and "innocent" people are inside, then remember who it was that put them in harms way. The gang member. Don't seperate them in jail---they'll work it out.

the problem with that is it would be actionable in a court of law if anyone was to operate a site that showed alleged gang members. if sued, the operators of the site WOULD BE FORCED to pay money to gangmembers, possibly tens of thousands or more for slander and defamation of character. being a a gangmember alone is not a crime, and thanks to the constitution, it could never be a crime (changing the constitution would make ALL ORGANIZATIONS fall into gang status, such as being a member of the tea party or the ACLU)

Mary Jane, What ever you said I think it was a positive comment reg: Norteros/Sureno. It would be good if these two could stop the killings. The Blacks and the Whites are very close to stopping there killing......
