Innocent black Americans are being harassed, driven out of their neighborhoods, and targeted for murder.
Why isn’t it on the front page of every national newspaper? Why isn’t CNN doing special documentaries? Why aren’t Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton up in arms?
Because the perpetrators are illegal alien Latino gangs. Doesn’t fit the old white vs. black narrative.
Via the Los Angeles Times:
Federal prosecutors today charged members of the Latino Florencia 13 street gang with racially motivated crimes against African Americans, including several attempted homicides.
Authorities said the gang specifically tried to eliminate rival African American gangs in South L.A. and the Florence-Firestone area in an effort to “cleanse” the neighborhood. In doing so, they mistakenly harassed and attacked innocent African American residents, according to the indictment.
More than 60 members and associates of the Florencia 13 street gang were charged with federal racketeering and drug charges.
“In their attempt to intimidate African Americans in the community, they targeted innocent citizens,” U.S. Attorney Thomas P. O’Brien said.
O’Brien said the arrests were the result of a nearly three-year investigation into the gang that culminated in federal indictments at the end of the summer.
The arrests come as both local and federal officials have launched a crackdown on race-motivated gang crime across L.A. Authorities have already filed charges against a different Latino gang in the Harbor Gateway area accused of crimes against African Americans, including the slaying of a teenage girl last year.
