Street gang charged with terrorizing blacks in Azusa; 51 indicted By Sam Quinones Los Angeles Times Staff Writer 10:01 AM PDT, June 7, 2011 A federal grand jury has indicted 51 people allegedly associated with the Azusa 13 street gang, accusing them of harassing and terrorizing blacks in the Azusa area in incidents dating back to 1992. The 24-count indictment, scheduled to be announced at a U.S. Department of Justice press conference Tuesday morning, catalogues numerous alleged meetings at which gang members discussed targeting blacks in the area, and incidents in which blacks were beaten and robbed. According to the indictment, the gang also allegedly taxes drug dealers in the Azusa area, passing some of the proceeds on to members of the Mexican Mafia prison gang, a practice common among many Latino street gangs in Southern California. The Azusa gang paid taxes to a man the indictment identified only as "Mexican Mafia Member #1" until his death in December 2008. Since then, the gang has allegedly paid drug taxes to three other members of the Mexican Mafia that the indictment does not identify. In 1997, one gang member allegedly drew up a "business plan" for the gang to control drug trafficking in Azusa through violence, and urged gang members "to imagine the 'varrio' as a company, [and] imagine the homeboys as employees of this company," according to the indictment. The gang, with more than 400 members, has been a force in the Azusa area since its formation in the 1960s. Authorities said many of the gang members named in the indictment are already in custody.
ZOGBY POLL: In Mexico, a recent Zogby poll declared that the vast majority of Mexican citizens hate Americans. [22.2] Mexico is a country saturated with racism, yet in denial, having never endured the social development of a Civil Rights movement like in the US--Blacks are harshly treated while foreign Whites are often seen as the enemy. [22.3] In fact, racism as workplace discrimination can be seen across the US anywhere the illegal alien Latino works--the vast majority of the workforce is usually strictly Latino, excluding Blacks, Whites, Asians, and others.” * FROM THE CREOLE FOLKS WEBSITE AN EXAMPLE OF MEXICAN RACISM: La Raza Mexicans Attack Townhall Protesters & Use "N" Word! (TRANSLATED FROM SPANISH TO ENGLISH-LA RAZA MEANS "THE RACE") Where is Obama, MSNBC, Nancy Pelosi and CNN to highlight the violent hispanics at town hall meetings? Where is the NY Times and Washington Post? Where is the NAACP-to speak out on this racism and hate speech like they did with the white guys in Pa. state? These Mexicans have let that HBO George Lopez comedy show-go to their heads! La Raza is a HATE GROUP-no matter what the media says about them. Former Lt. Gov Cruz Bustamonte of Ca. routinely made a point of calling black people "Ni**ers" and as a result, more hate crimes are done against blacks by Mexicans in Ca. than any other place in the U.S. (Shocking and telling Video on just how bad the U.S. has become due to our mindless political leaders)

REALITY CHECK: MEXICANS ARE THE MOST VIOLENT AND RACIST PEOPLE IN THE HEMISPHERE. THEN WHY DOES OUR GOVERNMENT WORK SO HARD FOR THEM?

IS THE STAGGERING COST (ONLY TO THE MIDDLE CLASS) OF ALL THIS “CHEAP” LABOR WORTH THE STAGGERING COSTS TO HIS NATION?
From the Los Angeles Times Racial hatred runs African American family out of dream home The charming house on a peaceful Duarte street was perfect for Channise Davy and her children -- until she came home to find the place vandalized, racial epithets strewn across the walls and furniture By Corina Knoll June 4, 2009 The house, a three-bedroom cream-colored residence on a peaceful street, even had yellow and red roses waving merrily from the front lawn. And while the backyard was cramped, there was a nectarine tree, a red swing set and a small gazebo. This is it, Channise Davy thought. Home. Happy to have found a place near her salon in Altadena and close to her fiance in Pasadena, the 31-year-old hairdresser moved her four children from North Hollywood into the one-story charmer on Broach Avenue in Duarte last fall. Davy never thought about the fact that they would be the only black family on the mostly Latino block -- until someone reminded her in a way that still makes her eyes tear and her stomach twist. On May 8, Davy opened the door to her home and was greeted by a barrage of spray-painted racial epithets. The hardwood floors, the mirrors, the televisions, the dressers -- the vandals had turned the entire place into a canvas for that six-letter word used for decades to scare and scar African Americans. Shaken, she immediately left and called police. And aside from one trip back to pick up some clothes, Davy has refused to return to a scene authorities believe was created by members of a local Latino gang. "As far as hate crimes go, it's probably one of the worst ones I've seen in my career," said Sgt. Tony Haynes of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Duarte station. "They trashed the furniture and tossed drawers -- there was pretty much no room left untouched." The incident has been the talk of Duarte, a predominantly white and Latino bedroom community of 25,000 in the San Gabriel Valley. Black and Latino gangs have been active in the area for years, and last year a rash of interracial shootings occurred in nearby Monrovia. Since the break-in, Davy and her children have lived in a hotel paid for by the county, but those funds ran out Saturday and she is struggling to find a new home in a place that feels safe. "You can see it in her face, the stress she's going through," said Lynn Lawrence, who owns the salon where Davy works. "Emotionally it has had quite an effect on her." Wary of disclosing the area in which she hopes to settle, Davy said the last two landlords she spoke with backed out at the last minute. Others have asked for deposits she can't afford. "As of now, we really have nowhere to go," Davy said Monday in the courtyard of Duarte City Hall, where a community meeting had been called to address the incident. "It's kinda hard to pick up the pieces of what has transpired for me and my family." As she spoke, Kenny Johnson was two miles away, lugging green garbage bags down the sidewalk of the working-class neighborhood where his children once played. The father of three of Davy's children, he had come to the house that morning with his brother and two friends to begin clearing away what belongings could be salvaged. Johnson said he plans to marry Davy, but he keeps his own apartment so she can maintain her Section 8 eligibility. They had discovered the Duarte house together and agreed: Beautiful home. Beautiful neighborhood. But after the break-in, the 36-year-old barber sees only an intimidating residence littered with shards of glass. "We were quiet people, man," he said, shaking his head in disbelief as he picked up children's shoes and toys. His children haven't seen the vandalism and only know that something bad happened there. While his friends pulled a mattress out of the master bedroom, Johnson stopped to look at a wall calendar of Barack Obama. "This is the only thing they didn't touch," he said, smiling at the irony of hope hanging on one wall and hate spray-painted across the rest. The landlord has encouraged the family to return, but Johnson said their sense of security has been violated. They won't get their deposit back, but moving is worth it, even if it means putting their things in storage for the time being. "I don't blame them," said Davy's next-door neighbor Betty Peirce, 75. "I don't think I could come back either." One of the few whites who live in the area, Peirce said she hadn't thought about racial tension during the three decades she has lived on Broach Avenue. She never imagined anything would happen to her black neighbors, especially because they seemed like nice people who were often at work. Duarte officials and the county's Commission on Human Relations have extended support to Davy and called for healing in the community. "It's obvious that even in Duarte, people still do incredibly stupid and foolish things," Mayor John Fasana said. He emphasized the city-sponsored programs already in place that promote racial unity, but said, "If there's gaps out there we need to fill in, we're open to new ideas." Both Davy and Johnson say they just want to move forward with their lives. "Bad things happen to good people all the time," Johnson said, taking a break from cleaning. "You just gotta live and learn." His brother, Ronald Harris, 31, nodded, then paused. "Our grandparents used to tell us stories about stuff like this," he said. "We always thought, 'Nah, not us.' " As birds chirped in the June breeze, the two sat for a moment on the stoop of the three-bedroom cream-colored residence on a peaceful street. * Some of Gang's Killings Race-Based “In a murderous quest aimed at "cleansing" their turf of snitches and rival gangsters, members of one of Los Angeles County's most vicious Latino gangs sometimes killed people just because of their race, an investigation has found”. In L.A., Latinos Targeted Blacks By Thomas Watkins Associated Press Sunday, January 6, 2008; A02 LOS ANGELES -- In a murderous quest aimed at "cleansing" their turf of snitches and rival gangsters, members of one of Los Angeles County's most vicious Latino gangs sometimes killed people just because of their race, an investigation has found. Authorities said there were 20 homicides among more than 80 shootings documented during Florencia 13's rampage in the hardscrabble Florence-Firestone neighborhood, exceptional even in an area where gang violence has been commonplace for decades. Officials did not specify the time frame or how many of the killings were racial. There were even instances in which Florencia 13 leaders ordered killings of black gangsters and then, when the intended victims couldn't be located, said, "Well, shoot any black you see," according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca. "In certain cases, some murders were just purely motivated on killing a black person," Baca said. Los Angeles has struggled with gang violence for years, especially during the wars in the late 1980s and early '90s between the Crips and the Bloods, both black gangs. Latino gangs have gained influence since then as the Hispanic population has surged. Evidence of Florencia 13, or F13, is easy to find in Florence-Firestone. Arrows spray-painted on the wall of a liquor store mark the gang's boundary, and graffiti warns rivals to steer clear. The gang's name comes from the neighborhood that is its stronghold and the 13th letter of the alphabet -- M -- representing the gang's ties to the Mexican Mafia. Federal, state and local officials worked together to charge 102 men linked to F13 with racketeering, conspiracy to murder, weapons possession, drug dealing and other crimes. In terms of people charged, it's the largest federal case ever to involve a Southern California gang, prosecutors say. More than 80 of those indicted are in custody. But eliminating the gang won't be easy. It has survived for decades and is believed to have about 2,000 members. Its reach extends to Nevada and Arizona and into prisons, where prosecutors say incarcerated gang leaders were able to order hits on black gangsters. According to the indictment, F13's leader, Arturo Castellanos, sent word in 2004 from California's fortresslike Pelican Bay State Prison that he wanted his street soldiers to begin "cleansing" Florence-Firestone of black gangsters, notably the East Coast Crips, and snitches. His followers eagerly obeyed, according to federal prosecutors. In one case, F13 members came across a black man at a bus stop, shouted, "Cheese toast!" and fired. "Cheese toast" is a derogatory name for East Coast Crips, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin S. Rosenberg. The victim, apparently targeted only because of his skin color, survived being shot several times, Rosenberg said. F13 is not the only Latino gang linked to racial killings. Last year, four members of the Avenues, a gang from the Highland Park area, east of downtown Los Angeles, were convicted of hate crimes for killing a black man in what prosecutors called a campaign to drive blacks from that neighborhood. And last January, authorities announced a crackdown on the 204th Street gang after the killing of a 14-year-old black girl. The violence goes both ways, said Adam Torres, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department gang detective whose beat includes Florence-Firestone. During a recent patrol on the east side of the neighborhood, he pointed to a cinderblock wall peppered with bullet holes. Torres said the Crips still control that area and any Hispanic there is at risk of being shot. Despite the wave of violence, George Tita, a criminologist at the University of California at Irvine, said racially motivated gang killings are an exception. Latinos and blacks are far more likely to be killed by one of their own. "You don't see these major black-brown wars, either within the context of gangs or outside the context of gangs," Tita said. Residents of Florence-Firestone are loath to discuss gangs, fearful that they might end up as targets, but there are signs of change. The number of homicides in the neighborhood dropped from 43 in 2005 to 19 in 2006, Baca said. In 2007, there were 19 homicides as of Dec. 24. Jose Garcia sees the difference. The security doors on the store where he works aren't covered with graffiti as often, and he hasn't heard a gunshot in two months. "It used to be at least once or twice a week," he said. ….. A YOUTH ‘ON TRACK’ UNTIL FATAL GUNFIRE Football player's dreams die in a flurry of bullets in South L.A. By Paloma Esquivel, Paul Pringle and Francisco Vara Orta Los Angeles Times Staff Writers March 4, 2008 Stanford University called about Jamiel Shaw a week or so ago, intrigued by the slight but speedy running back for Los Angeles High School, the Southern League's most valuable player last year. Rutgers University called a few days later. The Shaw family already had reason to be proud. Jamiel's mother, Army Sgt. Anita Shaw, was on her second tour of duty in Iraq. On Sunday night, it was Jamiel's father on the phone and then his son's girlfriend, Chrystale Miles. Jamiel Sr. called to tell him to hurry home from the mall. The 17 year old boy was three doors away when someone shot him to death while he was still talking on his cellphone to Chrystale, friends say. Jamiel Sr. heard the shots almost as soon as he hung up. He ran out of the house, raced around the corner and found his son lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. "She's over there trying to protect us from guns and bombs, and then she has to hear that her son is dead over here," he said of Anita on Monday. "I've got my own personal Iraq now." Los Angeles police officials described the killing as random and senseless, cutting down a youth who had been doing everything right in his life from hitting the books to never missing church to inspiring the Los Angeles High Romans to last year's Southern League title. A police spokeswoman said two Latino men pulled up in a car, jumped out, asked Jamiel if he belonged to a gang, and shot him when he didn't answer. She said Jamiel was not affiliated with a gang and that detectives had no suspects.
