OC Sheriff Not Scared About Budding White-Power Gang in San Clemente, Even While Freaking Out About Mexican Ones

If you ever want to talk about the racial double standards that continue to plague Orange County to this day, just check out how county law enforcement deals with gangs in South County.

For years, the Sheriff's Department, district attorney's office and the few police forces down there have applied for grants, issued gang injunctions, and generally cracked down on Latino gangs from Lake Forest down to San Clemente. Can't have anything ruin South County's self-designated reputation as our paradise, right?

But white-power gangs? Meh.

Back in the 1990s, there was a white gang based in Mission Viejo whose name escapes me right now (but I'm sure one of our faithful skinhead readers will remember) involved in assaults, robberies, and general racial mayhem--but law enforcement officials treated them with kid gloves. Today, the San Clemente Boys are a growing menace in--where else?--San Clemente, acknowledged by the sheriff's department as being involved in a growing amount of crime and adhering to a white-power ideology. But instead of sending in the Guns of Navarone, like law-enforcement officials in North County and the Huntington Beach-Costa Mesa area have done for years against the neo-Nazis out there, the sheriffs will let the Boys be boys.

That was the take offered by San Clemente Patch reporter Adam Townsend, who characterized an interview with Lt. John Coppock on the subject as the lawman saying the San Clemente Boys "don't pose a threat."

"They've kind of been around for a couple of years," Coppock told Townsend. "They're not a real active group, not real close-knit. The group identifies with white supremacist leanings, but they're not as hardcore as some of the white supremacist gangs."

Oh, please. White-power trackers know full well white-power gangs are far crazier and more dangerous than cholos (it's that Nordic initiative!), so the willful ignorance by Coppock is downright derelict--and telling. And if you ever want to talk about the racial double standards that continue to plague Orange County to this day, just check out how our loyal readers here and on Facebook will justify this double-standard as necessary because everyone knows gabachos are A-OK and Mexicans sheer evil...

It's usually considered cowardly among whites (i'm mixed before the libtards cry racism) to jump people or not fight alone. Not so much among minorities. White gangs are nothing to worry about.

Gustavo you really have to dig in the past to make a point about white racist. One only have to look back a few week to find the Latino Racist .Compton ,Azusa just to name a few towns .

Your're an idiot.  If you have ever spent any time in the good ol OC County Jail then you would know why your article is nonsense.

Has everyone in here so quickly forgot the Aryan Brotherhood trial that was in Orange County? Its not about White crosses on peoples lawns anymore. Hell, the number 1 ally of the Aryan Brotherhood in and out of prison is La Eme (The Mexcian Mafia) White gangs are big in drug trafficking in OC and have no problems dealing with other races because it's all business. White Power groups are more militant live in wooded compounds and are organized for race wars. The white street gangs all wanna be in the big leagues one day and thats joining the AB or Nazi Lowriders or inmates call "Woods". Shortened for slang the used to call them. They want to go to prison because thats they only way to get membership and that's when they learn its not about white, black or brown but its all about the Green

In the late 1990's a group of rich white kids in SOC called themselves, "The Slick 50's". They stabbed a kid.

How many hundreds of Latino gang murders in OC in the last 30 years?

You wouldn't need more than 2 hands to count skinhead murders.

Imo... Hispanic gangmembers act out, because they're oppressed and Skinheads act out, because of psychotic aggression.  I think that psychotic aggression is what the story is referring to as 'nordic initiative'.

One day as I was in my Bogota hotel room - grateful that I had made it through another day unscathed (considering the work I was involved in) and even more grateful that I wasn't in Orange County, CA dealing with the mafia like trash behavior of OC law enforcement - I saw a news broadcast about the Bogota traffic police. 

It turns out, that the traffic police division in Bogota was so corrupt that it was easier to just fire the entire department rather than trying to figure out who was honest and who wasn't.  

And then my thoughts turned to home again.

I've experienced lots of types in my travels. law abiding and non. Met a lot of dickhead Mexican Gangbangers and Skins. My experience: Lots more laid back ese's out there. Nazi's always seem ready for war or something. Not generalizing, just sharing the people I've met in my past...

I'm sure this has nothing to do with the simple fact that 41% of California prison population is made up of Latinos? Perhaps is just that there are more Latino gangs over all. Hmm? Either way I think this weekly magazine is free because people won't actually pay to be fed bs. Where are the facts? Oh here's some...http://www.ppic.org/main/publication_show.asp?i=702

Cory: Given we've tracked white-power groups longer than anyone and have weathered their death threats, we think we know what we're talking about! Tara: How so! Ryan: Gracias for proving the final sentence of the article!

Nazi Low Riders?

Hmmm...You don't hear about white boy drive-bys, or see whitey slangin' dope on the corner, in the hood either. Hell it is even rare to see supremacist graffiti scrawled all over the city buildings and public transportation.
 
"Minority" (and I use that term loosely) street crime is tenfold, compared to any white supremacist street crime. If you don't believe it, look in any California jails, or just listen in on a police scanner... 
Law enforcement officers know who the real community threats are, and trust, if it race based, it's because your own raza perpetuates the problem. And somehow in this article, that is law enforcements problem? Get real.

How about doing a numbers game? How many white thugs/gangsters/clan are there compared to Hispanic gang members? 1 out of 20? Probably More?

Your perception is jaded and flawed, rendering your article nothing more than bitterly written filler material.
Lastly, you should look into the percentage of Latino O.C. Sheriffs to Caucasian Sheriffs. You'd be surprised at how they are not far off from each other .

Hmm did my comment get deleted because it didn't fit liberal stereotypes. I see how it is.

White kids need a legitimate outlet to express their ethnic identity, and to pursue political action in their ethnicity's interests. As long as the media and politicians continue to deny that, so called 'white supremacists' will emerge and be forced into violence. (This is, of course, ignoring the street violence white kids are subjected to at the hands of non-whites, which might provoke so-called 'white power' gangs).

And learn to use the spell-checker, "editor" -- what the fuck is 'inititative'.

All criminal gangs are bad news. But white gangs are crazier and more dangerous? Hmm. That's not what law enforcement statistics say. Nor do I constantly hear from the media crime stories on O.C. white gangs. Sounds to me that the O.C. Sheriff is trying to use his resources where they are most needed. His job after all, is law enforcement, not political correctness.

@vegandawg23 That is total bullshit. White gangs might extend that "courtesy" to other white skinheads, but definitely not to hate crime victims. You fucking lying retard.

@NGCoot Of course, the Klan apologist would be an apologist for white-power gangs...typical Mater Dei graduate!

@vegandawg23 Reddit or somewhere mentioned that The Weekly has a "low information voter filter..." It kicks out comments of the imbecilic and the ignorant. I'd suggest more reading.

@Mitchell_Young Oh, please. You of all people know very well that cholos almost exclusively target illegals and cholos, while your beloved skins go after everyone who ain't white. Love that spinning!

@GustavoArellano @Whophantom OMG, you guys have no clue do you? Nazi Low Riders are a prison gang that was an off shoot of the Aryan Brotherhood. Violence is their calling card. Hell, they were even in the TV Show Gangland

@GustavoArellano @Mitchell_Young No offense Gustavo, but I doubt you'll be getting many column inches in the future from NavelGazing or anyone else with your blogs. It's understood that many  celebrities are racist in the minority communities like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. But they are smart enough to avoid the gutter when angry. Thus they are still listened to. Sad but true.

   Curious Gustavo.... do you even know what a column inch is? And to navelgazer.... you need a blogger that understands what research is? Pick a topic, I'll write you an opinion. You may not like the opinion, but I don't cherry pick facts. Or make them up.

@GustavoArellano @pattydoc You're right, I'm not. Who are these trackers? Are they two people or twenty two? Where do they get their information and what is their expertise? What I'm saying is that gang related crime statistics in O.C. don't back up your narrative. Nor do you give any evidence to show the reader that white power gang violence is increasing. 

By the way, 'pattydoc' is is the screen name that sometimes pops up when I sign in with facebook. She's the 'patty' and I'm the 'doc'. So to you I'm a chulo! To the reader, 'chula' means 'white girl' and 'chulo' means 'white boy'.

Cracks me up Mitch, that you "Mr. Racist", use the African American to engage the Latino.  The entire thing between latino's and blacks is about money making in the streets.  Color and ethnicity just become a part of the picture.  Pendejo!

@pattydoc @GustavoArellano There the self-important folks at  the Souther 'Poverty' Law Center and other associated caspers, who make good money by scaring Octogenarian Jewish ladies that the Third Reich is just around the corner, at that only a big check to said organization will save them.

There's big bucks in being antiwhite.
