Where is no action, raise our taxes, deny me the right to appoint elected official COUNCILMAN FRED SHORETT on this? FRED SHORETT has absolutely no plan and doesn't even call constituents back, never mind that he doesn't have a strategic plan to fight against crime, FRED SHORETT blows smoke all the time, looks like an incompetent idiot, and is sure a damn good puppet to the other idiots on the council. SHORETT is a do nothing, babbling, lying FOOL!

Yeah, good thing they were focusing on the real criminals instead of some run of the mill gangbangers.

Yes, thank God for this. You probably don't know that the majority of loaded guns taken away from gang-bangers are found during traffic stops. Unless the police pull over a car for a traffic stop, there is no way to search these cars and find weapons. It's difficult to get search warrants to search suspected homes where gangsters keep their guns. But much easier to stop them for a violation while on the streets. Otherwise it's nearly impossible to ever catch them with their weapons and file charges against them BEFORE they kill someone. Had this killer been stopped during a red light violation they might have found the weapon and saved this kids life. Think about it.

And guess how they look for these run of the mill gangbangers, Einstein. They pull them over for traffic violations. They can't just pull over a carload of gang-bangers because they feel like it. They have to have probable cause. So they have to rely on traffic violations like running a red light, California stop or speeding. Once they pull them over they can search the car or run warrant checks on the occupants. I guess a rocket scientist like you wouldn't know that. You's rather criticize them for pulling over cars. What an idiot.

Yep, and the two they arrested were most likely gang-bangers with warrants.

I guess you aren't aware that a car running a red light can kill just as easily as the shot from a gangbangers gun. In fact a car running a red light can kill a whole family at once. Guess you didn't know that?

Know where your kids are at and what they are doing. Be a parent every day not when it is convenient for you.It so sad that so many young men have to do die due to senseless murders. When are we going to wake up and do a good job parenting.

I hate to see the word "we" used when you say "when are we going to wake up and do a good job of parenting". Because most of us are doing a good job. Most of us do know where our kids are. But it's that percentage that doesn't care or doesn't have the parenting skills to do it right. They let their kids run wild. They don't have a set time for kids to come in. Or if they do, they don't enforce it. It's not us as a society that are failing. Most are doing our parts. But myself or you can't force other parents to do the same.

Too bad you don't consider a crime that often ends in the deaths of innocent people worth enforcing. Why is that? Are you one of those people who like to sail through red lights at 45 miles per hour without looking? Maybe that would explain why you think it's just a minor crime.

RED LIGHT RUNNING CRASHES ARE ON THE INCREASE

Red light running factors into more than 800 deaths annually; more than half of those who die are hit by red light violators.

Each year more than 800 people die and an estimated 200,000-plus are injured in crashes that involve red light running. Total deaths in such crashes numbered almost 6,000 during 1992-98. More than half of these deaths were pedestrians and occupants in other vehicles who were hit by the red light runners. Another 2,779 deaths occurred in the vehicles running the red lights. During the same time period (1992-98), about 1,500,000 people were injured in such crashes.

The Sun, as usual, deleted my comments:

Taj Yohance Carraway? What was his race?

And where is any mention of his father? I can't seem to find that in the story.

There are dozens of reasons they can pull over just about anyone. I doubt this exercise was about gang interdiction and I doubt they caught many bangers doing it.

I don't know. I'm sure gang bangers run red lights just as much as non-gang bangers. But more likely the cops that pulled over these people were traffic officers rather than detectives or officers specifically assigned to gang details. In any event, a car running through a red light can be just as dangerous (or more) than a gang banger. I know, because my uncle was killed by one several years ago in Miami. The driver was arrested for manslaughter. And it turned out he was a gang-banger and had a loaded weapon in his car as well as a car-load of his gangster buddies.
