    Not all men can be U.S. Marines that is why there is the Army, Navy and Air Force.

      "As of today, they are done," said Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. "If they come back, they are arrested. It's been a long time coming."

      Although Rancho San Pedro uses the housing project of the same name as its base, the gang injunction filed by Trutanich's office targets most of the San Pedro area.

      About 300 named gang members cannot associate with one another, intimidate anyone, carry firearms or ammunition, use drugs and alcohol, obstruct traffic, carry graffiti or vandalism tools, act as lookouts, loiter or trespass.

      Trutanich said the injunction's provisions will not allow the gang to reorganize.

      "The best part of the injunction is it covers damn near all of San Pedro," he said. "They cannot travel in San Pedro at all."


      Unless trends are reversed and more space is available in the County Jail and state prisons, these statements aren't much more than false advertising. Arresting gang members for misdemeanor violations (of restraining orders) isn't going to keep them off the street, out of San Pedro, or from committing gang crimes. They know (as well as any LEO) how restrictive the criteria is to keep them in custody and how quickly they'll be able to get out to commit new offenses.

      If something isn't done to increase the holding capacity of our custody facilities, that "drop in the bucket" is going to end up on the floor, because the bucket doesn't have a base.

        its minor nuisance abatement, and unless you go after the hard core members, it means you are basically stuck chasing the pee wees around. If that tactic can push the weaker members into somewhat "honest citizen" status - great. But as I've seen, gangmembers are stuck on STUPID mode, and end up doing serious jail time, and becoming blights on society
