Feds Accuse ‘Azusa 13’ Gang Members Of Targeting Blacks

AZUSA (AP) — A federal indictment has been unsealed that accuses a Latino street gang of conspiring to rid a Southern
California city of black people through intimidation, threats and violence.

More than 50 people were charged Tuesday as authorities made morning raids that targeted the gang known as Azusa 13.

Federal prosecutors said the gang engaged in a host of crimes ranging from drug trafficking to hate crimes that has crippled Azusa since the early 1990s.

Six people have been charged with civil rights violations for allegedly harassing, and in some cases attacking, African Americans to drive them out of the city or to prevent them from relocating there.

More than two-thirds of Azusa, located 25 miles northeast of Los Angeles, is Hispanic, while roughly 3 percent is black.

    This has been happening for a while . They are a latino race based hate group just like la raza , mecha , ect. … These groups breed hate at a young age and by the time they are young adults they have commited a large amount of the crimes in America .

      Open season on Azusa 13 members, no limit and leave them where they lay. They’ll come around to our way of thinking.

    • Latino does NOT equal Mexican Only

      Please DO NOT clump all Latino’s with Mexicans. Salvadorians, Hondurans, Paraguayans, Brazilians, Cubans, Ecuadorians, Columbians, Belizians, Chileans, etc. etc. DO NOT share the same cultural values as MEXICANS.

      There’s a reason for that 13 in that gang banger gang name – its the 13th letter in the alphabet and they don’t like the rest of the alphabet.

      So please. Thank you.

    This isn’t solely a gang problem. Busting these gang bangers won’t stop this. Its part of the Mexican culture. They have a large element of racism, not only towards African Americans but towards other Latino’s, especially Central Americans.

    So, this is just a more obvious example of Mexican NOT Latino racism, meaning, you hardly if EVER find such things like this in Central or South Americans.

    But you go into those communities, looking somewhat “hispanic” and they will drop their guard, from thugs to normal Mexican people and you’ll hear and see some really awful attitudes towards African Americans but appallingly, towards Central Americans.

    Its a more serious problem and you can find it in all levels, from hispanic cops to the worker working the register at a Goodwill.

    There they go again, embarrassing Hispanics for the world to see. And they wonder why everyone treats them like basura. May they rot in Hell, tossin’ Bin Laden salad for an eternity…
