    Default Claim of gangs in the LA sheriff dept

    This was on the news this morning. I have no idea where the truth lies since the media is not to be trusted.

    These gangs supposedly encourage their members to kill. CBS news this morning said: These officers are said to be latinos and kill mostly other latinos.

    Los Angeles Deputy Says Colleagues are Part of Violent Gang

    The allegations against the Compton deputies follow accusations of other gangs in the department — called the Spartans, Regulators, Grim Reapers and Banditos — that also share tattoos and a history of violence, the Times said.

    A violent gang of Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies who call themselves “The Executioners” control a patrol station in Compton through force, threats, work slowdowns and acts of revenge against those who speak out, a deputy alleges in a legal claim.
    Austreberto Gonzalez, a former Marine and a sheriff's deputy since 2007, said in a notice of claim ahead of a planned lawsuit that the gang retaliated against him for months after he anonymously reported a fellow deputy for allegedly assaulting a coworker in February “to further the reputation of the gang.”
    Gonzalez later received a text message with a photo of graffiti at the station, he said. The graffiti allegedly said, “ART IS A RAT.”

    The LE world is divided up between pencil pushers and trigger pullers. And the latter do not trust the former, and thus associate among themselves. The dynamics of the warrior culture, going back to the Spartans, is one of high testosterone, semi-controlled violence, and conflict. Sometimes these groups solidify even more. The issue is that the LE world has become overly pussified and overly sensitive to anything manly, aggressive, or warlike. This would never be an issue if it was applied to a SEAL team or an SF team.

    And as far as snitches...once somebody was labelled a snitch or a rat, they may as well quit or retire because nobody on the street would ever have their backs.

    I'm not ready to declare him a rat and follow your uneducated accusation as of yet since you really don't know him or the circumstances around his complaint.

    Wouldn't go as far as that, BUT...it was understood in my era that other than something so egregious that it was evil, you did not rat out another officer. If you saw somebody doing something out of their lane, you called him on it face to face...maybe among other brothers...never to the brass. And other than something patently evil, like an on duty sexual assault or something of the sort, nobody saw anything if asked by the brass. I am sure current admin types will take exception to that, but I don't care...that was the way it was.

    I recall one dude that snitched on a brother officer about a use of force issue. The officer in question got some 80 hours off without pay. The snitch had to be assigned to a desk on day job because nobody would back him up on the street at his calls. Nothing overt...just guys would take a long time to arrive and assist...or be otherwise occupied with something. The rue of the day was that rats and snitches would not be tolerated.

    And as far as the shooters and such. Guys that won gunfights were lionized and revered as examples to follow...as they should have been.

    That was my world...don't know about how it is now and i am glad of that.

    It's still much the same -- well, based on the department and the administration -- but, we all know the press isn't the best thing to make an assumption on...especially calling him a punk b*tch since he doesn't have a clue. I just get a little tired of the keyboard tough talk.

    Evil cops. Gangsters in uniform. Retaliation against brave whistleblower.

    Heard this before. Seen it in a thousand movies and TV shows. Just coincidence that happens to fit in with the socialist agenda.

    And that compared to current day LAPD, LASO are still considered meateaters. And that the elected Sheriff, though a Dem, has told the self-appointed civilian oversight commission to pack sand.

    Not much in the way of retaliation if he's still walkin' around scratchin'. "Art is a rat?" That's it?

    I think this is largely bullshit. Convince me otherwise. Innocent until proven guilty.
