103 Alleged Honduran Gang Members Arrested
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By LARA JAKES JORDAN Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON -
More than 100 alleged members of the violent Honduran street gang MS-13 have been arrested in a nationwide sweep, authorities said Monday.

Using information from local and state law enforcement agencies, federal agents charged 103 members of the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, gang with a range of criminal and immigration charges. The arrests came in the New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Newark, Miami and Dallas metropolitan areas over the last several weeks.

Officials said MS-13 is one of the largest and most violent street gangs in the United States, and the majority of its members are in the country illegally. The gang has carried out beheadings and grenade attacks in Central America and is known to hack their enemies with machetes in cities along the East Coast in the United States.

The arrests are the result of a new "Operation Community Shield" nationwide sting by the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to target violent gangs.

"By bringing the full range of ICE's immigration and customs authorities in the fight against violent street gangs, we can take hundreds of gang members off the streets and have a significant impact on community safety," said Homeland Security Assistant Secretary Michael Garcia, who is director of the ICE bureau.

Half of the alleged gang members have prior arrests or convictions for violent crimes, including murder, sodomy, assault, arson and weapons and drug possession, officials said.

In one example, on March 13 agents arrested a man who acknowledged he is a founding member and leader of the MS-13 cell in Hollywood, officials said. The man, who was charged with immigration violations, was previously convicted in the United States for robbery, possession of a dangerous weapon and mail theft.

Authorities also arrested the purported leader of the MS-13 cell in Long Branch, N.J. on March 10. The suspect has a criminal rap sheet that includes charges of arson, weapons possession and grand larceny, officials said. He was also arrested on immigration charges.

Last month, former Homeland Security Deputy Secretary James Loy called MS-13 an emerging threat to the United States, referring to the gang and the al-Qaida terrorist organization in the same breath in testimony to Congress. Besides al-Qaida, Loy said, "We are seeing the emergence of other threatening groups and gangs like MS-13 that will also be destabilizing influences."

Officials arrested 30 alleged gang members in the New York metropolitan area, the most of any of the seven cities targeted. Twenty-five were arrested in Washington, 17 in Los Angeles, and 10 each in the Baltimore, Newark and Miami areas. The last arrest came in Dallas, officials said.

... If you're taking in air through your ass while inhaling through your nose, perhaps your sphincter is in the wrong part of your body.

Just my luck. I start a legit thread on the weekly Az forum rebellion day.

Oh and Azexarms, if I start a thread or two about gangs of blonde haired blue eyed Dutch gangs to balance things out would that be ok?

I"m gonna guess "yes"

Simply because IIRC some of those arrested were in MO as well (edit: apparently I'm thinking of some previous activity here, not the current story), just because we happen to be "on the way" from the SW to the NE, and therefore the drugs, going from south america / mexico to wherever else, tend to travel through here. Since ya'll are border states, I'd say its a safe bet that there is some action going on down there.

And isn't every day "forum rebellion day" 'round these parts? (j/k -- although sometimes it seems like it from the number of threads shwoing up in active topics that later end up with 'da lock)

I saw something on Bill O'Reilley's show either last night or the night before where they also made a strong case to seal off the border that involved the MS-13 gang. Hopefully with all of the help we can get from FOX news and all of the other organizations we piss off with this minuteman thing something might actually get done to seal the border. Maybe Bush (who I voted for) will man up and do the right thing as he no longer has to worry about pussy-footing around to get re-elected

The problem is that threads show up in the Active Topics and we end up with asshats from all over the map that come into the forum, stir shit up, and get topics locked.
