FBI Takes Down a Local LA County Gang That Targeted Blacks

This is personal.  I live a small town in southeast Los Angeles County Hawaiian Gardens; a working class town of 15,000 people  located on the Los Angeles County/ Orange County Border  surround by Long Beach, Lakewood, Cypress and Los Alamitos; for 30 years this past January. For year Hawaiian Gardens has a gang problem a severe gang problem. VHGR (Varrio Hawaiian Gardens) has been since the 1990’s been targeted blacks.  Hawaiian Gardens has a very small African-American community (which has been growing over the years; According to the 2000 Census the black population is 4.4%)

VHGR has been targeting blacks  by making threats, scrawl graffiti on walls of homes and businesses, and burning houses of blacks families.  I have been  harassed by some of the jokers. In 1992 or 1993 (I can’t remember the  exact date)walking back home from my late older brother home  late evening.   Then again in 2002 walking  from the liquor store  Carson Pioneer Market on the corner of Carson St. and  Pioneer Blvd.  The guy asked what am I doing here. The joker told me to go back to Compton, where I belong.  I ignored him I was scared.  But I wasn’t moving out for nobody except but own  my accord. I have been here since 1979  just about to twelve years old.

VHGR  has targeted other families in town and scared off people including My pastor’s family.  It was in 1995 that the City of Hawaiian Gardens hired African-American community relations liaisons I forgot his name. He asked questions of my parents, my late older brother Johnny and his widow Paulette and other black families.  And told us to call is there have been problems.

Whats funny I may know some of the parents of these gang members and I probably went to school with them from (old)Bloomfield Elementary School , Pharris Fedde Middle School(formerly M.T. Killingsworth Jr.High School)  and Artesia High School. These characters trying to push out blacks is crazy. I wasn’t scared off by white folks why should I be Hispanic gang members.

I thank GOD for the FBI and  LA County Sherrifs for finally bring an end to this madness. Now Black folks and others can have a piece of mind.
