In Chicago, Hispanic Gangs Protect Their Neighborhoods From Looters: “Get the F*ck Out! We Won’t Let Our Neighborhood Burn”

In Chicago, Hispanic Gangs Protect Their Neighborhoods From Looters: “Get the F*ck Out! We Won’t Let Our Neighborhood Burn”

As calls to abolish the police reach a fevered pitch, we see a glimpse of what might fill that vacuum

In the absence of elected leadership and in the face of police standing by and watching looting in Chicago, Latin gangs are protecting their local businesses and running would be looters out of their neighborhoods.  It’s hard to fault them for it, but do we really want street gangs acting as law enforcement?

Because that’s what we can expect in cities that are considering abolishing their police departments—remember, the leftist and anarchist protestors want the police abolished, it’s the political wing, the Democratic Party, that substituted “defund” and is now walking even that back because it’s so vastly unpopular among their own voters.

Create a vacuum, and it will be filled.  In Chicago’s Hispanic neighborhoods, the Latin Kings and other street gangs are reportedly stepping up and doing what their elected officials and police departments have not been able to do: protecting their neighborhood businesses from arsonists and looters.

These are alleged street gangs, so this video comes with a heavy-duty LANGUAGE WARNING:

Here’s another video in which the alleged gang members appear to have created a checkpoint and are refusing entry to anyone not from the neighborhood.

At one point, one person says on audio that anyone who doesn’t need to be there, should stay home, “We ain’t lettin’ nobody in this bitch.”  [LANGUAGE WARNING]:

There is a line, of course, and while these gang members are clearly motivated to protect their neighborhood, its people as well as its businesses, this should not be on them to do.  But what choice is there?  Let it burn?  Let their friends and families have their livelihoods destroyed?

After all, it seems that some looters feel entitled to loot and rob and have a meltdown when confronted by armed people protecting stores.

Hilariously, she takes her complaint to . . . the police.  I can’t loot this store because these people are guarding it with guns.  You can’t make this stuff up, and I hope it turns out to be a parody video of some kind.

While this part of the story doesn’t fit the left’s narrative and is being largely ignored by mainstream media outlets still pretending the rampant rioting, looting, arson, and murder are “peaceful protests” for a good cause, some are complaining that these Latin gangs, who are in their own neighborhoods, are harassing black Chicagoans who venture into Latino neighborhoods.

Latino leaders are calling for unity after Black Chicagoans have been harassed and had bricks thrown at their cars in some Latino neighborhoods.

On Sunday afternoon, Little Village neighbors came together to protect 26th Street businesses after people looted shops. Ald. Michael Rodriguez (22nd) said as the night went on, a few Latino men became “antagonistic” and were indiscriminately targeting Black people driving through the neighborhood.

. . . .  In a Facebook Live video shot at 50th and Cermak in Cicero at 7 p.m. Monday, groups of people with bats and metal pipes were gathering near the intersection.

“Non-Black, Latinx gangs [are] armed with bats, machetes,” said Luz Chavez, who shot the video. “Any car that passes by with Black people in it, they are yelling at it and throwing s—,” she said.

Chavez, founder of online magazine Gozamos, urged Black people to “stay out of Cicero.”

That’s good advice, and I dare say it applies to antifa pukes, as well.

The Chicago Tribune ran a story on it, as well.

The organizing efforts of some Latino groups to peacefully protest and help protect their communities from unrest were quickly overshadowed by racial tensions after reports that alleged Latino gang members were profiling and targeting black people in Little Village earlier this week.

. . . . But Sunday things changed. Looting began to spread to Chicago neighborhoods and Little Village residents rallied together to stand guard in front of neighborhood businesses and on street corners.

A crowd on 26th Street grew throughout the day after looters attempted to hit some businesses in the heart of the Mexican-American neighborhood. Residents and police intervened and halted the chaos.

Shortly after, leaders of New Life Community Church, who have been working to reduce violence in the area for years, helped to organize residents to guard the streets and to help keep the peace. Elizeth Arguelles, a tamale seller and activist, walked the whole 26th Street corridor to check on street vendors who were shutting down early because they feared violence in the neighborhood.

Alleged gang members joined in the effort to stand guard.

After several social media posts were widely shared showing alleged gang members in Little Village and Cicero attacking black people in those neighborhoods, people began labeling the situation a race war. More posts advised black Chicagoans to avoid “Mexican neighborhoods” because Latinos were profiling and targeting them as looters.

The radical left still fails to understand the basic facts about human nature.  You can’t unleash rabid mobs bent on violence, arson, looting, and mayhem and then expect a calm, rational, politically-correct response.  They also don’t seem to understand that Latinos are generally far more conservative than they are and will not put up with their crazy.

Inevitable. When governments fail to do its job people take over. This revolution will be shut down by the people even if the government does nothing.

    Almost 100% of those leftist and anarchist protestors are White Liberals.

    Diamond and Silk on all of this today.

    Diamond and Silk 6-9-20 on live discussing the left narrative about de-funding the police…..

      Diamond and Silk are wrong on this, yes probably 50-60 % are White but their are a lot of black thugs out there… a lot

        JanineC in reply to gonzotx. | June 10, 2020 at 4:31 am

        The majority of instigators are white Antifa members. There are some BLM starting stuff too, but the Antifa crowd are starting most of the stuff that is affecting black neighborhoods. Some blacks start joining in, but only after the Antifa begin vandalizing.

        rdm in reply to gonzotx. | June 10, 2020 at 4:35 am

        But they are not the leaders they are opportunists that are following along because they see a route for them to loot.

          dunce1239 in reply to rdm. | June 10, 2020 at 12:55 pm

          Antifa is the currant violent militant branch of the democrat party just as the KKK was in the past. They are totally aligned with party policy. The blacks are now useful idiots in rage inspired and directed by the party. They are surprised that the latinos are not taking marching orders as the mayor in Chicago was openly blubbering when many alderman both black and latino spoke out against the rioting and looting.

    Here is an interesting dilemma. Who would you pick to be ruled by if you were forced to choose: genocidal communists like Biden and Lightfoot, or violent street gangs like the Latin Kings?

    The citizens of Chicago are already being forced to choose.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to NotCoach. | June 9, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    It will be shut down even if the government opposes the action tbe people.

    I’m kind of surprised that a conservative outlet like this misses the point so badly.

    “Inevitable. When governments fail to do its job people take over. This revolution will be shut down by the people even if the government does nothing.”

    In our society the people IS the government. The police are nothing more than specialists we hire to outsource one of our responsibilities in order to fulfill those responsibilities in a more efficient and effective manner. It’s no different than hiring a plumber to fix your backed up toilet.

    But if that plumber doesn’t show up, it’s still your toilet and your responsibility to deal with it…just like defending ourselves, our businesses and our neighborhoods is ultimately our responsibility regardless of the fact that we pay the Police.

    In the face of a non-responsive or overwhelmed Police force, it falls upon us to provide for ourselves. That’s just a basic fact of life folks. When we do this we are not “doing the job of government”, we’re doing our job…period.

The police are there to protect the innocent and guilty. Vigilante justice can quickly turn ugly.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to fast182. | June 9, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    I think that it is more important to protect the innocent. That may require immediate put down when guilty are caught red handed.

      I agree that the primary purpose of the police is to protect the innocent, but part of their job is to ensure that the accused get a fair trial. There will be unintended consequences for the criminals if the police pull back too much.

        zennyfan in reply to fast182. | June 10, 2020 at 4:44 pm

        Maybe the criminals will learn a hard lesson, i.e., some people don’t show their bellies and meekly accept collective guilt as a reason for pillaging and burning down their neighborhoods.

    InEssence in reply to fast182. | June 9, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    The police are not an option. They take orders from the mayor, who told them to let the businesses looted and burned.

    Andy in reply to fast182. | June 10, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    turn ugly….

    that ship has sailed.

hate to bust you up, but that has been going on for quite a while, look at what is going on, a cop kills a black, reason is irrelevant , but a black gang banger kills another black child ho hum another day in chicago, even if that cop is black, the uproar doesn’t last that long. hope not of that upset anyone, but if you look at it through ‘cold equations’ I think that is what you will get.

    fast182 in reply to ronk. | June 9, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    ronk, indeed. If the left didn’t have a double standard then they would have no standards at all.

    Another glaring example: the left tells us that only the authorities should have guns, then they scream that all authorities are racist.

DDsModernLife | June 9, 2020 at 9:02 pm

“They also don’t seem to understand that Latinos are generally far more conservative than they are…”

Look for Trump to peel off a surprising percentage of Latino voters for that very reason.

My Latino friends (and relatives) are Christians and therefore staunchly pro-life. And I’ll add: they are not amused when Leftists denigrate people of faith.

Further, many of them have experienced Socialism first-hand and they’re not interested in seeing it sprout up here in the land of the free.

Meanwhile, the Democrats treat our Latino citizens as a monolithic block who can be pandered to by simply denouncing border security.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to DDsModernLife. | June 9, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    Latinos deserve credit for good work ethics. They also commit on a per capita basis, far less crime than American blacks.

    As long as blacks keep beating the racism drum, and making endless , unjustified demands, I intend on rubbing their collective noses in reality.

    Their crime rate is unacceptable and their demands are outrageous.

    stevewhitemd in reply to DDsModernLife. | June 9, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    I’d be careful in your assessment: the Latino community is about as polarized as the white community. Latinos come in two flavors — those who are socially conservative and economically moderate, and those who are very liberal. The former are the ones you reference and there are a lot of them. They work hard, own shops, own businesses, care for their families, and look to get ahead. The latter are in the Democratic walled garden (even there they are less liberal).

    The Pubs have had problems appealing to the former because a) the media and b) inept messaging. Trump is clearly better at messaging but you still have the media. So I’d like to think that Trump could receive some of the Latino vote, but it’s not a given.

      Tom Servo in reply to stevewhitemd. | June 10, 2020 at 7:46 am

      I wouldn’t say they’re “natural conservatives”, that’s going too far, but they are NOT stupid. and the reason you don’t see any hispanics getting in on this latest stunt by the Left is that they know very well that “black lives matter” means “Hispanic Lives DON’T matter.” They know it’s all bad news for them, just like in this video.

Things are going to get real interesting, real fast!

The gangs have been ruling the streets of Chicago’s South Side for a long time now. They own the politicians. That’s why the street shootings never get solved and the violence keeps escalating.

Our leftist governments are playing with fire here.

Vigilantes will, obviously, step in to fill the law-enforcement vacuum. But vigilance committees don’t have any jails. Their only effective way to strong-arm recalcitrants is violence, up to and including execution. A graduated response to crime is one big advantage government law enforcement has over vigilance committees.

    MajorWood in reply to tom_swift. | June 10, 2020 at 1:49 am

    I was chatting with a PDX officer I know the other night, mostly to see how he was holding up, and in part of our conversation about the defunding requests I asked him if he thought that antifa was aware of the fact that the police were pretty much the only thing keeping them alive at this point. The police keep civil people in check. Remove the police. Different story.

They want to unleash the vigilantes do they? Gee, what if a bunch of staunch conservatives decided it was time to purge our society of the Marxist and Anarchist scum that are trying to destroy it?

Politicians abandoned any attempt at helping the people of the inner cities years ago.
Every election they trot out the same tired slogans we’re hearing now. And nothing changes for the people.
So is it any wonder the gangs are protecting their turf? If it burns up there goes their livelihoods of extortion, prostitution, gun running etc.

I’ve been pointing out for a while that the SAME PEOPLE whining about how evil and racist the police are, are the SAME PEOPLE whining about the ‘vigilante’ killing of Arbery just weeks ago and bitching that they should have called the police. Just like one of the main lies and talking points about Zimmerman was that the police told him not to pursue and that he should have let the police handle it.

These people are incapable of rationally thinking out the easily forseeable consequences of their actions.

    CommoChief in reply to Olinser. | June 9, 2020 at 10:21 pm


    That is a Damn good point. It’s a shame that the MSM are too busy endorsing our descent into a tribal structure to be bothered to make it.

    They’re capable of thinking rationally – evil rationally.

    They are psychopaths.

    Look how Communist China and WHO jump from one outright untruth, to the opposite lie and back again – all in a few days.

    It is all planned to trap, torture, and murder their prey.

    They are the Ted Bundy Party.

Nancy & Joe’s Excellent Racist Adventure.

No one’s saying this: but we haven’t lost the Hispanic population: they have more pro-American values than the brainwashed white zombies running around.

My dentist (a teaching professor in dentistry and nearing retirement) remarked to me how he can’t find a young associate: he said he tried, but he can’t deal with the defensiveness of the young dentists he’s tried out. He actually called them ‘snowflakes.’ And this man is very liberal.

We should elevate the pro-American Hispanics, but keep them out of leftist schools. It’s a good opportunity to mentor them and educate them away from the poison of the sickos who destroyed the current crop of educated whites, Asians and blacks.

    dunce1239 in reply to | June 10, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    Catholic colleges years ago were citadels of conservatism but have been taken over by homosexuals and liberals. Where can you send your children today??? Many of the other churches are just as bad.

This behavior, quite rational under the circumstances, is the end result of tribalism. That’s what tribalism is; folks voluntarily sort themselves into like groups when society and it’s rules break down and those responsible for enforcement are unwilling or unable to enforce the societal compact.

Most people don’t want to be forced into this state of being. They just want to be able to live and be allowed to prosper. Unfortunately the left is pushing the nation into a tribal state. Hell, most people don’t want to join a prison gang but because that membership may offer their only way to survive in prison they make the rational choice to do so.

The tribal us v them, with them being everyone not us, is not what the overwhelming majority want. Hopefully the few adults remaining on the left can rein in the headlong rush to tribalism and it’s inevitable conclusion: tribal conflict.

Make no mistake that is where every nation built on tribal divisions ends. Every post colonial nation which had unresolved tribal animosity within their artificially imposed boundaries has had tribal conflict. Some still do.

To think that some people who should know better are creating and encouraging the formation of tribalism in the U.S. is as stultifying as it is appalling. We are not immune from the end result of tribalism; conflict and division.

My hope is that someone who has enough influence to get these folks attention can and will do so to divert us from this path to the destruction of the nation.

    That is excellent but the problem is the Dems have been addicted to identity politics for a long time now and cannot give up the habit, withdrawal is too painful for them.

      CommoChief in reply to FOAF. | June 10, 2020 at 8:23 am


      The d are addicted to the division in the same way that a coach will keep calling the same play until it doesn’t work. The problem the d have in the nation’s large metro areas in blue states is there isn’t a viable d opposition, their only opponents are within the d party/coalition.

      This is easily seen in CA. There are lots of middle age d african Americans who have been loyal soldiers, patiently waiting their turn for political advancement. Unfortunately for them the demographics of CA over the last quarter century are unfavorable in that the growth of hispanic Americans has outpaced them. The result is more positions taken by other members of the d coalition.

      That’s part of the mid course result. The d coalition, due to years of dominating large metro areas, is competing internally against itself. They have the whole pie in many cases, so it isn’t a question of acquiring more but rather a question of how to divide it among themselves. The example in Chicago of the exchange between Mayor Lightfoot and Aldermen Rodriguez is a part of the dynamic.

      That example is what gives me hope that some of the members of the d coalition will realize the grifters and race hustlers can’t actually deliver. We see this in the various ‘walk away’ movements. In the short and middle term this process may continue as more and more folks recognize they have been conned for years.

      The inherent instability of the d coalition is beginning to assert itself. Many inside and outside of the metro areas which have been under d rule for two generations or longer are beginning to realize that it isn’t some guy in rural America that is pulling the levers of power.

      Instead they are getting wise to the con artists and beginning to understand that in a place like Minneapolis where d have been in complete control since the early 1970s that the leadership of their own party has failed.

      It’s very hard to find an outside, foreign ‘other’ to blame in domestic politics at the local level. The ‘orange man’ might be bad, but neither he nor the r have been running the metro areas nor the states, in some cases, for a quarter century or more.

    In its purist realistic form Nationalism is a tribalism where there is only one tribe, which encompasses all of the country’s citizens.

      WestRock in reply to rdm. | June 10, 2020 at 7:07 am

      And sadly the same assholes media outlets that called Tea Party supporters “tea baggers” have equated Nationalism with White Nationalism. They knew damn well what they were doing, and we’ll see it again and again where they turn a classification or concept around and use it as a weapon.

The Rooftop Koreans (said with respect) were well regulated. Many had military experience. They controlled a section of land in Korea Town, Los Angeles California, USA, during a deadly riot. They understood what it meant to be able to keep and bear Arms. They did exactly that to protect their lives and property when their government utterly failed them. Call it what ever you want, or deny the definition of what they actually did, it doesn’t matter. They saved themselves and their way of life as free Americans. The rest is smoke-filled, coffeehouse crap. Your government is going to fail you. Plan for that day.

Mogadishu of the Midwest.

The Dhimmi-crats apparently want to emulate such failed states as Somalia, so every American city can have drugged-up gangbangers riding around the city in technicals (beat-up, modified pick-up trucks with mounted machine guns), setting up checkpoints and burning tires.

    That is the irony of the situation. The communist dictatorship that is being actively pushed by the MSM/DNC axis may not come to pass in the way they have dreamed of. Biden and his fellow commies may yet sized power in November, but it looks like large swaths of the country (the deep blue hellhole major cities) not be under their direct control.

    Nor could Biden send in the Feds to crush them. If we were talking about a group of white gun owners banding together in (say) Waco, Texas, it would be no problem. The Feds would simply slaughter every man, woman, and child they could get their hands on, and the MSM/DNC axis would be singling “Hallelujah!!” But MS-13, or the Latin Kings, or any violent street gang with brown skin presents Biden with a major problem. If he tries to Waco them, he runs the real risk of getting deposed by a significant portion of his own inner circle.

    So Biden and his fellow commies in Washington may have to settle for ruling a country that is 80% North Korea and 20% Mogadishu.

broomhandle | June 9, 2020 at 10:43 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, your personal safety is being provided for tonight by MS-13. Please enjoy the show.

    MarkSmith in reply to broomhandle. | June 9, 2020 at 10:56 pm

    I bet a lot of them are not MS-13 but just locals that have banded together. People not brought up in an ethnic culture can not understand it like the earlier immigrates like the Italians, Poles and Irish did in the 50’s. The black have never had that ethnic of family like the Latin based culture.

    There is still a lot of Italians, Russians, Poles and Irish in Chicago. Police have backup. Beatlejuice could be history sooner than you think if she does not get her act together.

      Perhaps, but do the locals have the same firepower and organization, and (most important) the willpower to use both? It may be that faced with an ugly choice between a racist black mayor and a violent street gang, locals might enter a tacit alliance with the latter to protect against looting and burning.

      This is reminding me of what I see going on in Kenya. There a corrupt one-party semi-Marxist dictatorship constantly stirs up tribal animosities in order to keep the opposition divided and squabbling. The end result is a weak dictatorship where significant portion of the country (such as northern Kenya) are not under the control of the government. In the rest of the country Kenya is one contested election away from all-out civil war (thanks for nothing Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel arap-Moi, you blood-sucking monsters!!)

      Like the ruling party in Kenya, the Democrat Party has spent decades fanning racial and ethnic hate for political gain. But incidents the one that we are seeing in this Chicago neighborhood signal that they have sown the seeds of their own eventual demise.

    They’re not MS-13. Those guys were too old, big, smart to be MS-13. I’ve watched MS-13 in action.

This is what civil war looks like.

Just wait for the mob to get in the action. Chicago Sopranos will bring it under control and keep the Dem. in check.

Watch what happens in the Italian hoods.

What is “government” but “THE LEGITIMATE PROTECTION RACKET”. If government does not or will not fulfill its most basic function why is it surprising that local “organized” gangs fill the “vacuum”. Just a bunch of “Dreamers” dreaming of a “brighter future” for them and theirs.

People really have no idea jut how regulated LEAs and LEOs are; especially today. Every arrest, every enforcement action, literally every move that a LEO makes subjected to scrutiny, both public and private. The average arrest is vetted by a supervisor. Then it may be reviewed by a detective. It is presented to a prosecutor. It is presented to a judge. Then it is on to the defense and a trial, including a jury. If any complaint of impropriety is made, it is investigated by the department and, in some areas, a civilian review board. Sometimes by the prosecutor’s office and even a Grand Jury. Civil attorneys may get involved and investigate, along with state and federal law enforcement agencies. Then, of course there is the media involvement. But, if there is no LEA [police] who do you report the behavior of some nameless gang banger to? How does someone accused by a civilian vigilante get a public hearing?

Then we have the vetting of the law enforcement officer to consider. LEOs are tested for various skills. They are tested for mental stability and physical well being. They are tested for drug use. They undergo background checks. They attend structured training courses and are required to satisfactorily complete periodic re-training. They are trained in the laws of arrest, search and seizure and the use of force. They learn first aid, and interview and interrogation skills. How many non-LEOs receive that type and amount of training and vetting? How many gang bangers?

Yep. what we need are more untrained, unvetted people running around enforcing their edicts, not necessarily laws. And, who is going to pay them? Yeah, we really need fewer cops on the street (sarc).

Chicago has been ruled by gangs for decades. Most are allowed as they deliver their precincts to crooked Aldermen (I know, redundant). The dinosaur media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, ignores the carnage and violence, the same way they ignore the brutality and misogyny of Muslims. It doesn’t fit their narrative.

Let’s try a new tactic: enforce laws and defund criminals. Might work.

    Your observation is spot-on. Parts of Chicago have been run for a long time by street gangs, with the connivance of City Hall.

    What may be different this time is that the Latinos, after watching a racist black mayor deliberately let their homes and businesses be looted and burned by black and white terrorists, may have decided they want still more control over their lives. Lightfoot was willing to let them suffer and die to score cheap political points, so why not grab more power of their own? The guiding principle of the Democrat Party is raw tribalism, and it might be blowing up in all of our faces.

Of course this protection is not going to be free. If they keep this up, they will naturally expect the people they’re protecting to pay for the service. There’s a term for that, isn’t there? Isn’t this how the mafia started?

    rdm in reply to Milhouse. | June 10, 2020 at 4:36 am

    Of course, while you are right, the Mafia was providing both the violence and the protection from it in many cases.

      Tom Servo in reply to rdm. | June 10, 2020 at 7:49 am

      Mafia’s ALWAYS arise from corrupt local governments. Because if you can’t get public justice, you WILL get private justice. This is what keeps the Taliban ever popular in Afghanistan; as bad as they are, they’re still not as corrupt as the people who are supposedly in charge.

    This gang has been around since the ’60s and are pretty well-established in their um, business interests, and I wouldn’t be surprised if one of those was a protection racket.

‘complaining to police, can’t loot’

In London, a group of young men formed a chain to block BLM rioters from defacing a statue of Winston Churchill.

Police moved them out of the way so the terrorists could spray their graffiti.

Here in the US, a few years back during the Ferguson protests, local business owners hired armed guards to protect their business. Not uniformed security though, more on the lines of the “roof koreans” that became famous during the LA riots. Civilians with rifles on rooftops.

Police came and made them leave, then the rioters looted the buildings and burned a few of them down.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Aarradin. | June 10, 2020 at 10:56 am

    Instances like you describe, and the cowards in the LAPD who turned tail and ran back home to their enclave in Simi Valley justify disbanding at least some police forces.

Link below to white people defending their town in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (no violence in the video). They got wind of Antifa coming to riot. It had happened a few times before and they were done playing.

Dozens of people open-carrying, just waiting for the terrorists to show up.

Scary times

“Latino leaders are calling for unity after Black Chicagoans have been harassed and had bricks thrown at their cars in some Latino neighborhoods.

This would require a long explanation but briefly, in this current situation brought about by nihilism (the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated) and tribalism, there is no principle to unite us other than tribalism. SO KNOW WHICH TRIBE YOU BELONG TO! YOU DON’T HAVE A CHOICE!

Actually we do, but all of these stupid white liberal trust babies either wake up or there WILL be a race war. And they will find themselves without a tribe.

a few Latino men became “antagonistic” and were indiscriminately targeting Black people driving through the neighborhood.

I wouldn’t call that “indiscriminately”. They know EXACTLY who’s looting and rioting.

Doesn’t matter whether the looters are white or Black, the way to handle looters is to the traditional way, that stops looting. Looters caught in the act, should be shot. I would make exceptions for small children.

Gosh, it’s almost like racializing everything encourages…racism.

Who knew?

Notice how the Chicago tribune calls the Latinos “gang members” repeatedly while referring to potential looters as “black people”.

It’s hard to fault them for it, but do we really want street gangs acting as law enforcement?
It’s VERY hard for me to fault them for it. It’s their community (no matter how poorly they treat it), and it’s their responsibility.

This is what I’ve been beating the drum on for ages now: you cannot be free if you rely on gov’t or the “Thin Blue Line” or anyone else to protect you or to do things for you. You have to take responsibility for yourself and your community (larger than your neighborhood, and smaller than most cities).

You can’t unleash rabid mobs bent on violence, arson, looting, and mayhem and then expect a calm, rational, politically-correct response.
They’re NOT expecting a “calm, rational” response. They WANT a violent, tribal conflict raging. Because that makes it much easier to impose an autocratic solution.

Read Bio of a Space Tyrant (the last two volumes), by Piers Anthony.

    True, but they want that from we deplorables, they expected Hispanics to fall in line and join their ridiculous crime spree. They didn’t and they won’t.

I wrote just yesterday that defunding police will lead to community (self-)policing, and that this would lead to the creation of no-go zones within our cities. So it’s already started – Latin gangsters are protecting their neighborhoods by excluding non-residents.

Milhouse wrote, “Of course this protection is not going to be free. If they keep this up, they will naturally expect the people they’re protecting to pay for the service. There’s a term for that, isn’t there?…”


I’m a lawyer. I spent 37 years representing Latin Kings in Berwyn, Cicero, Little Village and Summit. My first felony trial was a death penalty qualified murder case out of the West Side. The State had two eye witnesses and two motives. My guy had six prior convictions for armed robery. I was solo against three experienced murder task force tough guys. I didn’t know my ass from a hole in the ground, but I made fools of their witnesses and punchedc holes in their motives.
Although my client was black, thec Kings got word of the win, probably from back in the lock-up. Within a few months I was representing dozens of them. I won a death penaly case for them too. I hit it off with many of them. It probably didn’t hurt that I was a sort of gangtbanger, too. I’ve been a member of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club (gang to the coppers) since 1966. been National Vice President, National Tresurer, Mother Chapter boss and enforcer. What’s an enforcer? It’s kind of like a troubleshooter. If somebody gives the club trouble, you shoot them. Yea, I got bullet holes. Choose somebody to challenge me and come over and count them. I was lucky, none were very serious, but bullets leave wounds and they are there. In reality, I shrug it off on how bad American marksmanship was in the 60s and ’70s.
Getting back to the Kings. Those in Little villiage amd Cicero have relatives who own these businesses. They also own their homes there. The blacks who tried to barge their way in come from under the railroad bridge just east of Cicero Ave on Cermak Rd. They were stopped cold and sent back to the West Side ghetto.

Whatever you think of the kings, they did the right thing here. They protected their neighborhod and they protected my Berwyn neighborhood, too because that’s where the rioters were headed.

I need to get more ammo. The 3500 rounds I have is not nearly enough.

The incident with the crazy black lady not wanting muslims to protect heir property from looters took plac les than a mile from where I went to grammar school. I’m not wild about muslims, but I would be happy to send them an extra box or two of ammo to shoot her ass quiet.

    So, let me get this straight. You were accepted for the Illinois Bar after being involved in organized crime, drug dealing, prostitution, assault, battery and homicide? Well, that seems to be a big reason why we have problems in this country. The Outlaws MC is recognized as an organized crime organization. And, it has been since the early 1970s. It is not a social club. It is not a political organization. I know this, because I spent a number of years dealing with them on a professional basis.

      There are lots of communist revolutionary lawyers, so why be surprised at some gangsters?

      One thing that gets me real tired is fools telling me what my club is. You don’t know shit about us. You said you worked with us on a professional basis. Name one Outlaw, tell me what chapter he was from. Three out of four Outlaws have no felony record at all. That’s why half of us are concealed carry. My worst conviction was for doing 85 in a 45. Been arrested dozens of times, including for murder 1 in law school. But I was innocent. For the murder case I was 30 miles away on a three hour three party conversation with a Chicago Police captain and the vice chairman of the state Republican party. It was self defense anyway, three black goofballs tried to steal the boss’s 68 Corvette. A heavily decorated Nam vet who survived the Tet Off came down and told them to stop. They popped caps at him. He was behind a 4 foot bank vault wall with my Ruger mini 14. He later said to me “when they got to seven shots I knew they had 9.” He got off 54 of the back to back 30s. Two of their heads were blown completely off. Yea, I selected the ammo. Heads off is always good work.

      I was let go right away because they were looking for somebody a lot heavier. They called gang crimes looking for fat Outlaws. I told them they got the wrong Fab they were looking for my brother, but he had a better alibi than me, he was finishing up a 5 year sentence at the MCC for chopping a mopes hands off and running a sword three times through a jerk who grabbed his girlfriend’s tits. They had a line up. the sole survivor had been puking for 9 hours straight and picked out a smart assed cop as the shooter. “I’m 100% positive it’s him” HAHA

      From the time I entered lawschool I stopped doing all drugs and the only crimes I comitted were speeding and the occasional California stop. I certainly had plenty of opportunities to do bad stuff but never did. I certainly don’t need jerks like you to tell me how to live my life. They took four months of intense investigation before they gave me my license. I never let them down.

      I got lucky. I married the class valadictorian. Now that I’m retired I only have a million or so. Not very much. The wife has an eight figure net worth. She was a SVP and GC at one of the largest banks around. After 39 years she weighs 104 lbs. All the rest are 50 lbs fatter.

      I don’t know what your life is like, but I get to go kayaking in Antarctica, Camel trip accross the whole Gobi Desert, couple of African Safaris, the Amazon, China, Russia(with Outlaws), japan just about all of Europe, most of South America and on and on. I pretty much live like a king. Don’t need to break any laws. And I never cheat on my taxes. Why should I? I’ll never be able to spend what I got now. And we give to PAWS and a dozen military groups. Don’t you?

    faboutlaws, you wrote:

    “Whatever you think of the kings, they did the right thing here.”

    For the record, I agree.
