Leaders of the Azusa 13 gang were sentenced to lengthy prison terms earlier this month for leading a policy of attacking African American residents and expelling them from the town.

Similar attacks have taken place in Harbor Gateway, Highland Park, Pacoima, San Bernardino, Canoga Park and Wilmington, among other places.
" is nothing to just dismiss. If these attacks were being carried out by white gangs there would be a huge national outcry.
There is a lot of truth here. And you can bet that if these attacks were carried out on white folks there would be hell to pay. There was very little concern about Black gang violence in Southern California until it spilled over into Westwood many years ago.

Some say that youth is wasted on the young. I disagree. I think that wisdom is wasted on the old. All you can do is give it away and the ones that need it want no part of it. Especially those you are closest to. Raymond Reddington
