    Let’s just ship these fine fellows to Gangster Island and let them kill each other off. I’d pay a few extra pennies in taxes to help make that happen!

    The Santa Maria problems are cultural. No white gangs, no asian gangs, no black gangs. Only Mexican gangs. And since the population is overwhelmingly Mexican, they are loathe to report or cooperate with law enforcement.

    So, the majority deserve what they tolerate. Everyone else suffers.

    Pelican: About 900 people are reported to be gang members in Santa Maria. So, double that or even triple that for affiliates.
    That would make .0003% of the population involved in gang activity.

    If you actually go to Santa Maria on any given day, you will realize that for the most part it is normal people doing normal things.

    Sounds alot like the Peppertree Plaza wars of the early 70’s that took place in Santa Maria.
