F13 Racial ‘Cleansing’ in L.A.
This is a small picture of something many in the Latino
community have been warning people about. These Gangs are separated by
race and if not squashed soon may spread to other cities and we will
have a major problem on our hands. Many of the orders come from our
prisons which are full of gangs separated by race.
Federal prosecutors say a powerful Latino gang
systematically targeted rival black gang members and innocent black
civilians in a reign of terror.
A South Los Angeles Latino street gang targeted African-American gang rivals and other blacks in a campaign of neighborhood “cleansing,” federal prosecutors say. Alleged leaders and foot soldiers in the Hispanic gang Florencia 13, also called F13, are being arraigned this week on charges stemming from a pair of federal indictments that allege that the gang kept a tight grip on its turf by shooting members of a rival gang—and sometimes random black civilians. The “most disturbing aspect” of the federal charges was that “innocent citizens … ended up being shot simply because of the color of their skin,” U.S. Attorney Thomas O’Brien told reporters in announcing the indictments.
