From the Los Angeles Times:

Suspect in Orange County stabbing rampage is gang member with criminal history, police say

By HANNAH FRY, CINDY CARCAMO, JULIA SCLAFANI

AUG. 8, 2019 3 PM

Authorities said the 33-year-old man accused of stabbing four people to death in a rampage across two Orange County cities is a known gang member with a criminal record dating back to 2004.

But detectives said they still were not sure why Zachary Castaneda allegedly went on the attack Wednesday, saying the violence appears to be random and that he didn’t know those he targeted.

… Authorities said the attacks, which unfolded over a roughly 2½-hour period, begun as robberies and quickly turned deadly. Officials say there is no indication the attacks were racially motivated.

I believe most of the victims were also Latino.

Castaneda became violent with detectives who tried to interview him several times overnight, police said. He gave no hint about his motives, Whitney said.

“I’ve been a police officer for 30 years, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen a suspect kill four people and stab others,” he said. “It’s pure evil.”

Castaneda has an extensive criminal history in Orange County that includes convictions for gun-related offenses, resisting a police officer, corporal injury, drug possession and theft. He also has several open cases in Orange County Superior Court on charges of vandalism related to gang activity, possession of a dagger and drug possession. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges, according to court records.

Just days before the rampage, Castaneda’s wife filed paperwork to move their divorce forward. The couple have three children, boys ages 7 and 12 and a teenage daughter….

Garden Grove Police Chief Tom DaRe said changes in California law — namely AB 109 — that aimed to reduce the number of inmates in the state prison system made it easy for Castaneda to carry out the crimes.

“This person should have been in prison and not in our community,” DaRe said.

Friday, August 9th is the 5th anniversary of the beginning of the #TheFergusonEffect. As I pointed out in my Taki’s column this week, the Establishment’s embrace of the #BlackLivesMatter terrorist movement five years ago appears to have up homicides almost 25% nationally in Obama’s last 2 years:

2013: 12,253 homicides
2014: 12,270 (#Ferguson: 8/9/14)
2015: 13,750
2016: 15,296
2017: 15,129

Southern California, however, had largely been spared much of the Ferguson Effect that plagued the country as a whole during the Late Obama Age Collapse. In part, this is due to major innovations that began with the LAPD under the leadership of the great Bill Bratton (Giuliani’s first police chief) in the mid-2000s, according to ace crime reporter Sam Quinones.

SoCal law enforcement agencies rethought their traditional theory that the way to battle criminal gangs is by making a case to arrest the “kingpin,” who was presumed to be the Brains of the Operation. Decapitate the gang’s intellectual leader and its nefarious workings will fall into disarray!

But, it turns out, gangs don’t really need to be run by a Criminal Mastermind. There are lots of guys in the gang who have the 85 IQ or whatever it takes to be head honcho. Plus, the constant turnover at the top made joining a gang more attractive to a teen because of the opportunity for rapid advancement through the ranks.

Instead, the innovation was to use RICO (Racketeer-Influenced Corrupt Organization) indictments to round up the entire gang, including minor foot soldiers, in one single operation. And then … Mass Incarceration! For example:

Thus, in June 2008, three months into Bill Murphy’s tenure as a Captain III, thousands of police officers poured onto Drew Street and into nearby areas. SWAT teams from as far away as the East Coast came in to help. Seventy gang members were indicted.

Another innovation was to use the federal RICO indictment to send gang members not to California prisons, which are honeycombed with working gangs like the Mexican Mafia and where relatives and homies can easily visit to exchange operational information, but off to federal prisons a thousand miles or more from SoCal’s ethnic networks.

I suspect that one aspect of the Ferguson Effect nationally has been an opportunity cost one: rather than study and adopt the SoCal innovations over the last five years, police departments have instead been more inclined to hunker down and just try to keep the Eye of Soros off them.

But no good deed goes unpunished in 21st Century America, so California has recently adopted various anti-mass incarceration bad ideas that are slowly undoing the progress that had been made against crime since the Crack Wars of 30 years ago.

  7. Orange County has been going down hill for years. When I first move to Mission Viejo 25 years ago, I was surprised to find out that locals were referring to Garden Grove and Anaheim as “Garbage Grove” and “Anacrime”. On the upside, the guy who lived in the apartment next to mine was none other than Canadian porn legend Peter North!

  8. off to federal prisons a thousand miles or more from SoCal’s ethnic networks.

    Round ’em all up, and cart them off to prison in the East? I think that’s been tried a couple of times, in the last century. With varying degrees of success.

    The cop ( white bloke, 10 years in The Job) managed to stay conscious long enough to taser our vibrant chum. Same old same old, part and ruddy parcel these days innit.
    The most informative part of the story?

    Elsewhere, a weeping woman officer who witnessed the attack was seen being comforted by a colleague. CCTV from a nearby garage showed how she narrowly avoided injury by swiftly stepping back when the knifeman swung his machete at her colleague.

    A Latina woman comes to America and learns that in this great country she can divorce her husband, take all his money, and force him to support her while she sleeps with other men. So one day when she’s angry at him, she tries it and he makes sushi out of her. Well, in one case he only beat her up and the cops arrested him, but when they found out he was an illegal, they let him go and he went home and killed her.

    We could certainly breed less violent people. Like we do with dogs. Dogs are the result of thousands of years of culling aggressive behavior from the gene pool. They readily revert to vicious beasts when aggressive temperament is selected for. This is displayed in the antisocial behavior of rescue pit bulls. Yes we could be breeding less violent humans, but we seem to be breeding more violent humans. And for possibly related cultural reasons we seem to be breeding more violent dogs.

    It appears that knives have as much agency as guns.

    Right. Within 5 feet knives rule unless the firearm is already aimed at the assailant, and even then a hit to be body generally won’t stop the assailant unless it hits a supporting bony structure (and the assailant drops to the floor) or destroys the assailant’s brain or (fat chance) spinal cord. If the bad guy is coming from behind, or starts stabbing with a knife while distracting the person being assaulted, knives win every time. I’ve been told that the person being stabbed and distracted thinks he’s been hit with a fist until the blood starts coming out.

    That’s why firearms are not really a defense, they’re an _offense_, and have to be used as ranged weapons to be effective. Hence, “situational awareness”, which is cognitive work and always of limited effectiveness.

    Which is why civil order, if you can get it, is preferable to civil disorder.

    The fact that white men tolerate such abuse from women does not elevate anyone else’s opinion of white men.

    Taking your comment seriously:

    De Toqueville attributed the success of the Americans to American women. Unlike French women, who insisted on being treated as if they were being courted during their entire lives, American women (said De Toqueville) were economically and mentally an active part of the family, essential for its daily functioning. His extreme example of this was the frontier wife, who left civilization to live under primitive conditions so that the family could have its own farm.

    This led to American women being much more independent in thought and action than French women, who had to act like a young woman throughout their lives to maintain their demand to be perpetually courted.

    The contemporary American middle income family requires quite a bit of cognitive work to keep it going. Ideally, the wife carries a large part of the load – raising childen, family accounts, keeping the house stocked, meal planning, acquistion of cooking equipment, keeping track of maintenance for house and yard, following investments, and quite possibly maintaining a career. _If the wife does not do that_, the kids tend to die young. Such activities cannot be coerced, any more than it would be possible to take a French society woman and have her act like an American frontier farm wife.

    So the men are reduced to hoping that the women act as is clearly necessary for the welfare of her children. If she doesn’t, well, there isn’t much that can be done.

    It is said that women’s liberation doesn’t hate men, it hates women. Essentially, women’s liberation has made the American family impossible for most people, and produced a lot of old women trying frantically to make a family when it’s decades too late, or hedonists like the doubly fictional “Elsie” in “Cabaret” (“When I go, I want to go like Elsie”).

    It’s also produced American men who have no idea of what to do now that they can’t form a family, the American men that you mention in your comment.

    It’s one more reason that we’re going to have a reorganization.

    But why? I can’t help but imagine something nefarious and strategic it nature.

    The usual. Cities are running off external tax money instead of taxing internal economic activity. To get the taxes, they need population. The population can’t be capable of holding down jobs, because they’d move if they could, and are tied to the city by welfare.

    The Black population has an average IQ in the mid 80s. About half of it can’t get jobs in the legal economy, so it works illegally — drug sales, assaults, and worse stuff. The police are thus the great enemy to half the Black population, plus another large part of the Black population that has a criminal close relative. Letting Black people out of jail is seen as a victory over the police by the aforementione. It cements their vote for the Black leaders who made this victory possible.

    The fact that white men tolerate such abuse from women does not elevate anyone else’s opinion of white men.

    The inhibiting factor in the behaviour of white men in the West is that their lives are actually worth something, to numbers of other people.
    All sorts of dependents, a few of whom they actually care about since they’re family. Not for their own sakes. They’re basically hostages to their loved ones.

    Former Eastern Bloc white men don’t take shit from anyone except their warlords/gang bosses/presidents. Particularly from women, and they can be just as stabby. As the EU found out after the Accession of those countries, and the former soviet criminal underclass rushed to the wealthier member states for gibs and prey.

    We need to outlaw assault knives completely. There is no legitimate reason for any civilian to own an assault knife. An assault knife is any knife with a sharp edge. Licensed butchers and chefs could still have them but they’ll have to keep them locked up at work. Food will be precut into bite sized pieces and we’ll all eat with chopsticks.

    We need to have TSA type checkpoints at the entrance to every dept. store, mall, school, etc. At least it will get rid of those damn water bottles. Why is everyone walking around with water bottles? Is a drought expected? In my youth, humans were able to make journeys of up to several hours without consuming water. As shocking as it seems, cars not only lacked seat belts and air bags but even worse, there were NO cup holders.

    NY has a law against gravity knives, but are said to test the knife by holding its blade and using the handle / housing as a weight while flicking it. If the knife opens, it’s a gravity under strict legal definition (which doesn’t say you have to be holding the handle).
