YES! FBI Teams Up With Local Police to Bust MS-13 Gang Members
In case you missed it, law enforcement has been issuing the smackdown of ages onto gangs (see WIN! ICE Arrests 1300 Gang Members, Begins Deportations and Epic! Louisiana Police Call Out Gangs in New Video). Particularly those spicy street divas who belong to MS-13. The latest development in their major butt kicking? The police and FBI combined forces to conduct major arrests and issue search warrants. And it looks like they've been rather productive...
Hundreds of federal and local law enforcement fanned out across Los Angeles in pre-dawn sweeps, serving arrest and search warrants as a part of a three-year investigation into the ultra-violent street gang MS-13.
Federal prosecutors unsealed a sweeping indictment Wednesday morning charging dozens of members and leaders of the brutal street gang with a variety of crimes, including murder.
Twenty-one people in the indictment were arrested in pre-dawn raids across Los Angeles and warrants were served at more than 50 locations. About a dozen of those arrested were so-called "shot callers" for the gang.
Let's take a moment to appreciate the term "pre-dawn raids." It paints vivid yet pleasant imagery of officers kicking down the doors to these gang's sleep shacks and waking them up with handcuffs. Shot calling and face tattooing shall be their hobbies no more. All thanks to the hard work of federal and local agents of justice.
This isn't just a victory for Los Angeles. It's a win in terms of national security as well. Most of these chumps fancy themselves undocumented citizens (see MS-13 Gang Members Murder a Teenager in Virginia. Yeah, They're Illegals...).
Fortunately for us, the feds have recently made hulk smashing MS-13 a top priority. What with all the crap-stirring these cholos and their gangster compadres have been up to lately, the wall is looking better than ever...
