It's crazy that the FBI took all this time and effort to put in capturing a so called African American Gang, But allowed the Mexicans to kill the police and other young African American men. My question is why the have not solved any unsolved murders?????? The police and FBI need to focus more on the murder rate and not drugs.

We all deserve to live in peace without terrorism. I am glad that we are targeting the real terror in our own backyards. Great Job to our EPA police chief for sending the message that we will not tolerate this behavior!
