Florencia 13 gang members guilty in federal conspiracy case

La Eme connected Florencia 13 members were convicted Monday in a federal RICO case that included allegations of attempte murder, firearm violations and drug charges. A large component of the case rested on the gang targeting blacks, according to a press release from the United States Department of Justice.

Here’s the release:

Ten members and associates of Florencia 13 (F13), a street gang involved in narcotics distribution and shootings of African-Americans, were convicted today on a host of federal criminal charges, including racketeering and narcotics distribution.

The 10 defendants were found guilty today after a 3-month trial. They are among 102 defendants named in four F13-related indictments that were returned by a federal grand jury in the fall of 2007. The investigation into F13, which was called Operation Joker’s Wild, led to the largest gang takedown in American history, with 96 of the 102 defendants being taken into custody. Seventy-six of the defendants have now been convicted, either at trial or as the result of guilty pleas, with the remaining defendants pending trial.

“The investigation into Florencia 13 demonstrated the power of law enforcement coming together to combat organized street gangs,” said United States Attorney Thomas P. O’Brien. “This gang – which targeted African-Americans, whether or not they posed a threat to the gang’s drug-trafficking operations – posed an imminent danger. As a result of this prosecution, the residents of South Los Angeles can live a little easier knowing that these dangerous gangsters have been taken off the street.”

John A. Torres, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, stated: “We are very pleased with the verdicts today. This sends a clear message that the community will not tolerate the heinous activity perpetrated by Florencia 13. These convictions will go a long way toward reducing violence and returning peace to the neighborhoods.”

Azusa PD and Baldwin Park PD officers took part in the operation, officials said.

    If they targeted African-Americans, why shouldn’t this be prosecuted as a hate-crime? We know the answer to that. p

    i really dont get it im white and it seems as if the mexicans are trying to start a race war with the blacks .

    I can say i really think its stupid the mexicans need to show some respect to blacks martin luther king made it possible for them to even be in this country because if we were still lynching blacks the would be no where to be found mexicans are the scum of the earth.

    i really dont get it the break the law and come to the usa and get here and wanna make it mexico, if you love ur race so much go back you a hundred miles away from the boarder take your ass home wet backs.

    the moral of the story is this blacks has earnd there keep in the usa these very same mexicans that hate blacks are getting hair cuts like blacks wearing sean john and roca wear clothing daaaaaa who the fuck make sean john u jack asses the ooohhhhhh this the funny shit they saying fuck blacks but why do i see these fuckers at laker games with kobe bryant jerseys on daaahhhhhhhhhhh mexican need accept the fact the blacks have paid the way for them to be here show some respect if u that mad the blacks fuck all yall bitchs well look they fuck all our bitches too im going to admit black people are some cool mutherfuckers i would be black if i could ohhhh yeah one more thing the mexican gang members are wearing nike cortez who made nike famous? yes michael jordan youll really are stupid.

    i dont care what u say if u suck one dick you a faggot youll really like blacks if didnt you wouldnt wear black brands of clothing or listen to tupac , snoop dogg , dr dre , nwa.

    MEXICANS ARE A DISGRACE TO AMERICA GO CUT GRASS
