U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade announced Friday that five of the 33 Latin Counts members were also indicted on racketeering charges — including assaults, murder, narcotics, firearms and robbery. She said the suspects were indicted on charges involving the distribution of heroin and cocaine, as well as various firearm offenses.

Members of the Latin Counts identify themselves with red and black clothing, with accessories typically tilted to the left. Their tattoos and street tags usually feature a five-pointed star or crown.

The indictment says branches of the street gang operate in Michigan, including Lincoln Park, Ecorse and southwest Detroit, and Illinois.

Is this called a gang bang?

Federal charges should mean that the feds will be paying to lock up these crooks. But from the sound of it, it appears that they were crooks just by entering this country.

Yeah, I remember the old folks just in from Europe talk about how the first thing they did here was to start a gang and profit from the destruction of their new homeland.

The values of European culture? Gratitude for a chance at freedom and success? Is that not enough anymore?

Not to worry - Obama is replenishing their numbers as I write.

"Fox News contributor George Will surprised Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace when he said that the United States should welcome and assimilate migrant children apprehended at the border fleeing violence in Central American countries.

“We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to American, you’re going to go to school and get a job and become Americans,’” Will said. “We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these eight-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous.”

It's not a gang, it's a club.

Gangs are the real terrorists in this country. They should utilize the military to do something useful and take them out.
