Los Angeles tour company is offering a "Gang Tour" (http://www.lagangtours.com)
You just can't make this stuff up. Can you imagine the tour guide telling
about the gang lifestyle? It might go like this....
"And here we have the drama and tragedy of South Central, vividly brought to you by LA Gang Tours--notice this historic intersection, Florence and Normandy, site of the famous Reginald Denny incident, where the White truck driver was beaten to an inch of his life."
there, notice the same spot where Rodney King was beaten by White, racist
Simi Valley cops--evoking the 1991 riots."
Only in America! White suburbanites, bored with TV reruns and hyped up with a jaded sense of self-importance, mixed with a quixotic measure of "hope and change," would pay some scamming gang punks $65 to "tour" the hood and gawk at a segment of humanity that has been forgotten by the world. When did we become so insane as to pay modern-day marauders, rapists of our women, assailants of our liberty, and those trashers of all that is good in our society? How have we come to legitimize the felons and violent destroyers of our neighborhoods, gracing them with a status conveyed upon hard-working, civic-minded citizens?
The story in the LA Times reads like some Kafkaesque visage, where the elites have the once-in-lifetime opportunity to hob-nob with those faceless killers and defacers of our landscape. Of course, once the bus "tour" pulls to a stop at a corner plagued by graffiti, the bereft passengers have concluded that only an "insensitive" society could have wrought such social mayhem. One passenger from Germany points out the "class" warfare angle, and guilt is heaped upon more guilt.
What the "tour" won't show you is the lives destroyed by the gangs. The murdered, maimed, the intimidation, racketeering and protection rackets, the thousands of young boys and girls that on good days, walk to school in utter trepidation, on bad days, stay home for fear of their lives.
L.A. Co states that we have at least 100,000 hard-core gang bangers on
the prowl. This doesn't count the thousands in-training. When Alfred Lomas,
former banger and now entrepreneur with "LA Gang Tours", entices
passengers while titillating our White suburbanites (noting "there's
a fascination with gangs"), he omits the racial killings and assaults
on Black youth by illegal alien gang bangers. Omitted then from the itinerary
is the fact that California taxpayers (not the gawking onlookers in the
bus) are stuck with a bill for hundreds of millions of dollars dealing
with the clean-up of gang activity.
Lomas admonishes us to deal with the problem head-on. OK, for starters, let's propose the following:
are that over 1/3 of our prison population is composed of illegal alien
gang bangers. If hey want to eat, let their girlfriends bring them their
lunch! I promise this: they will never come back to this country again
to destroy and gang bang. No need for medical, dental, therapists, psychologists,
and cop bureaucrats--they will beg us to send them to Mexico! Watch the
"coyotes" go chapter 11!!
--all those high-school dropouts will be levied a $200 fine for sticking it to the taxpayers and wasting vital resources. Upon completion of GED, and passing scores on core subjects, they'll be allowed to have drivers' licenses, allowed to vote, etc.
--ENGLISH ONLY IN OUR SCHOOLS. The bangers from elsewhere will LINE UP AT THE BORDER TO RETURN HOME. Our guilt trip brought about through "multiculturalism" and "diversity", has created the climate where we not only tolerate illegal aliens dumbing down our schools, but we now SOLICIT them with "sanctuary cities."
--Any threats or assaults against teachers will result in arrest, parents to pay for court proceedings and all bureaucratic fees.
--STOP THE MOTIVATION TO GO TO PRISON. Right now, gang bangers in prison gain reputations and are given hero-status in the community. Immediate institution of TENT CITY: two bologna sandwiches daily, facility transformed into a bare-bones operation of barbed wire, cots, and tents, where recidivism rates will plummet. That will be the best motivation at the high school level for wanna-be criminals who till now, have been praised and held up as icons in their jaded communities. Watch these knuckleheads leave the state in mass, sucker punching some other city with more guilt that we've had....
--start having some guts in our schools to say the pledge of allegiance, talk about American values and the uniqueness of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. They need to be tested on it, no pass, no driver's license, no job, no voting.
No, Alfred, you are not some downtrodden, miserable castaways without resources to take part in the American dream. You've made a niche for yourselves through intimidation and White guilt, that you've been honing for years. As your new state senator, I'll want to have a serious talk with you and your "homeys." I think you'll straighten your act out, and it'll be good for us all!
