Anaheim Gangsters Violated Rule 1 For Dummies During Violent Carjacking, Robbery

Flaco AKA Martin Magana: Half of idiot robbery team
Two idiot, gun-toting Anaheim hoodlums with the Jeffrey Street criminal street gang carjacked a poor, working class family in February 2009 and then kidnapped them back to their home where they stole laundry quarters, computers, jewelry and $100 in cash from a wallet.

Proving his brilliance, Humberto Alatorre called out his partner-in-crime's gang moniker, Flaco, in front of the victims before fleeing.

Because cops already knew Flaco was Jeffrey Street gangster Martin Martinez Magana it didn't take them long to arrive at his home.

Can you imagine what Flaco had in his bedroom?

That's right: some of the stolen loot.

In September 2011, an Orange County jury agreed with prosecutors that Magana, who beat one of the victims with a gun, was guilty of 14 felonies and enhancements including robbery, gang membership, illegal use of a weapon, assault and carjacking.

Superior Court Judge Richard F. Toohey sentenced him to prison, but Magana appealed, claiming that his trial wasn't fair. He insists that he can't be guilty of both robbery and carjacking because his actions culminated from the same intent.

This week, a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana considered his complaint and ruled for the government after finding "substantial evidence supports the [trial] courts finding the carjacking was divisible from the robbery [for sentencing purposes]."

The justices did however acknowledge that he'd been cheated out of 10 days of credit for pre-sentencing time served in the Orange County Jail.

Upshot: Magana, 34, will continue to serve his 15 years to life sentence at California State Prison in Imperial.

Alatorre, 37, is serving a 7-year sentence at the California Men's Colony at San Luis Obispo.

Striking resemblance to John Leos. Probably came from the same gangbanger family. Why do they have seven children with five different fathers? And why does the Pope wear $5,000 Ferragamo ruby red slippers? Be careful what you say here. Gustavo will give you the boot! JAMES ROBERT READE

Wow, is anyone surprised????  What surprises me is that this rag is writing this story about Gustavo's dreamer buddies.  Hey scott, do you really think the Anaheim Police have a crystal ball when they encounter these losers.  It takes a split second to react when dealing with these idiots.  I for one am glad when they take the initiative and blast them.  Saves the regular citizens and taxpayers alot of money and heartache.

Scott, no discussion of Latino Anaheim-gangsters would be complete without Gustavo Arellano's "wisdom of the streets" when he enlightened us with his conclusion that  "what you you have is all these young men who graduated from high school, and there are no job opportunities, and they're drawn into the criminal life."  Silly me, I thought most Southland Latino-

Gangsters were the products of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION (FBI agrees),  but I'm sure he has painstakingly researched their high-school diplomas, college applications, etc., and can prove his case.

 No lack of stories about latino perps, your comment just displays either:

1. commenting from a base of ignorance

2. inability to read for content

take your choice (maybe both?.

 According to Wikipedia :In the United States, the history of gangs began on the East Coast in 1783 following the American Revolution.[12] The emergence of the gangs was largely attributed to the vast rural population immigration to the urban areas. The first street gang in the United States, the 40 Thieves, began around the late 1820s in New York City. In 1850, New York City recorded more than 200 gang wars fought largely by youth gangs.[13] All the major cities of Victorian England in the late 19th century had gangs.[14][15] Chicago had over 1,000 gangs in the 1920s.[16] These early gangs were known for many criminal activities, but in most countries could not profit from drug trafficking prior to drugs being made illegal by laws such as the 1912 International Opium Convention and the 1919 Volstead Act. Gang involvement in drug trafficking increased during the 1970s and 1980s, but some gangs continue to have minimal involvement in the trade.[
