    You have got to be kidding me.

    So you are going to fabricate about your own statements as well?

    Can't debate the facts or answer my questions.

    figures.

    Re: Gang interventionist gunned down after confronting tagger

    Hate to interrupt all the side arguments, but it looks like they got the shooter, a 16-year old.

    Los Angeles police said Tuesday that they have arrested a teenage tagger suspected of fatally shooting a veteran gang interventionist after he confronted the youth over graffiti.

    The suspect, who is 16, is a Los Angeles resident but police declined to identify him, citing his age. Police noted the boy was not affiliated with a street gang, contrary to a department news release that stated investigators believed the shooter belonged to a gang.

    "He's a tagger, not a gang member," said Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr. Andrew Smith, who said investigators received help in identifying the suspect by Los Angeles Unified School police.

    Police said the boy fatally shot Ronald Lamonte Barron, who worked for the interventionist organization Amer-I-Can.

    Barron and his girlfriend were leaving a bar Sunday night in his old neighborhood in the Mid-Wilshire area when he noticed a tagger defacing a wall on Pico Boulevard. Detectives said Barron confronted the tagger, who fatally shot him as his girlfriend and others looked on.

    Surveillance video appeared to show a gunman wearing dark-colored clothing arguing with Barron in front of "numerous witnesses." The suspect then pulled out a pistol and shot Barron, 40, multiple times at point-blank range before calmly walking away from the scene.
    Barron's death was mourned not only in the gang intervention world but at City Hall and LAPD headquarters, where the reformed Mansfield Crips gang member was seen as an honest broker in the effort to reduce the grip of gangs in some neighborhoods.

    The LAPD's Smith said that in addition to more police, gang intervention workers would step up their presence in the neighborhood to reduce tensions.

    Now you have resulted in calling me a liar, I have treated you with respect up until now. So you want to drag this thread into a baiting session and not debate on the topic. First of all everything I posted in regards to links is fact not my opinion. If you think otherwise then the onus of proof is on you. You posted statistics which doesn't diminished the fact that gangs are murdering up to 400 plus people a year in a single city. Other comments that I have made is my opinion and I never stated other wise.

    That said and your wish to appease gangs and condone their behavior and tolerate the hundreds of murderers makes you bad as the gangs themselves, all under your so called concern for the rule of law. Like most in this country who are subjected to gang infested neighborhoods and the mayhem that ensues, you also turn a blind eye. As long as it isn't in my neighborhood I will defend them. Whatever you posted doesn't mean a hill of beans to those who lie dead in the streets, then again your not there to pick up the pieces.

    In regards to the constitution and the statement I have made in that regard, prove otherwise.

    Evidently you've never heard of that cesspool. It is a political chat site just to the left of Storm Front.

    And if you want to arrest people simply for what they wear, "free" is definitely not the operative word.
