It's not a crime to be in a gang. The poster probably is an educator or someone that dealt with Julio in a similar setting. They are correctly pointing out the denial that a lot of parents are in when it comes to what their children are into. In my opinion these four are all walking excrement and should be dealt with as such.  (Aug 10, 2009 | post #6)

A call for reparations on the world stage

SeeBothSides, have you read "Guns, Germs, and Steel" by Jared Diamond? I think you would appreciate his attempt to address the question of material disparity between regions in terms of geographic characteristics and the effect they had in the development and relationships between the peoples of those regions.  (May 30, 2009 | post #845)

Gavin Newsom to campaign in W.L.A. today

Agree, recently visited LA. Stayed downtown between Wilshire and Olympic. Area seemed to have once been livable with duplexes and fourplexes. Currently it was an overcrowded dump. It was really amazing to see how something viable can be trashed by the weight of an influx of certain elements. Amazing!  (Apr 22, 2009 | post #8)

What's wrong with anarchy? Oh I know, it is the exact opposite of political control(i.e. state sanctioned aggression) and deprives useless bureaucrats of their source power. Well we certainly can't have that occur.... Some folks are such dense useless sheep.  (Apr 17, 2009 | post #36)

If this is not a troll good on you... Logistically there are several issues to address: Operational security: can you guarantee that the public nature of your post will not draw in the more sophisticated element of your adversary and thus compromise the whole operation Legal Issues: I'm assuming scanners are legal and therefore no objections there, but for team members any and all legal ramifications such as the presence of weapons or anything that could compromise efforts through legal injunction should be considered Sustainability/Pub licity: organizational objective should eschew becoming a recognizable and therefore vulnerable player,therefore steps should be considered to reduce recognition and at the same time preserve plausible deniability i.e. use of rental cars, no real names, simple yet recognizable body language/signal craft etc. That being said, a small cadre of motivated and knowledgeable citizen (say 10-15, teams of two, scanner/video camera equipped) could effectively monitor the major through ways of a small town like Salinas and through coordinated communication respond as a background documentary presence which serves to record and provide evidence to criminal activity.  (Mar 5, 2009 | post #37)

I think we all have heard enough to paint a clear picture of you. Recent college graduate (Sociology/Humanit ies probable Ethnic Studies major) Coffee connoisseur that likes to sit prominently in artsy cafes with a prominently displayed scholarly tome Piercing and Tattoos (nothing over the top, just enough to demonstrate your independent non-conformist side) Owner of AT LEAST one Che Guevara image-bearing piece of mass produced merchandise Proud possessor of a metaphorical mental muscle shirt manifested through direct contact with the deluded masses which are clueless to the obvious enlightened view of that SOCIETY is the cause of all ills Reaction to the writings of Ayn Rand akin to a vampire's reaction to garlic garnish or a holy water hot tubs  (Mar 1, 2009 | post #23)

From this point on I am no longer paying my taxes, registering my vehicle, or obeying any traffic signs which are not translated into Gaelic. Furthermore, any legal entanglements arising from these actions must be administered over by a qualified dalaigh and conducted in strict accordance to the Laws of the Fenechus.  (Jan 15, 2009 | post #2)
