California: Suspected LA Gang Members Charged in MS-13 Crackdown

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – More than a dozen suspected leaders, members and associates of the violent transnational criminal organization MS-13 are facing federal charges, including transporting bulk quantities of methamphetamine from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the U.S. Department of Justice announced today.

On Tuesday, 11 of 13 defendants named in an indictment filed in Las Vegas were taken into custody: four defendants were arrested in the Los Angeles area, and seven were arrested in Las Vegas.

The arrests were part of a national takedown coordinated between law enforcement agencies in the Central District of California and other federal jurisdictions.

At a briefing at the White House on Wednesday, President Donald Trump commended what he called “my administration’s all-out campaign to destroy MS-13, a vile and evil gang of people.” more

  1. And no law enforcement weapon discharges? If you thought the police wanted to light people up this would be a great opportunity.

  2. This could have and should have been done long ago under past presidents Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, Obama.

    Even Trump should have done it earlier, like in February 2017.

    Since those presidents have all ignored it, I bet there have been many, many kidnappings, tortures, murders, and drug deaths associated with this vicious gang in the interim.

    Round ’em up and shoot them.
