Woodstock - According to the Northwest Herald, February 15, 2012, "The McHenry County State's Attorney's Office has filed a civil lawsuit against the Latin Kings in an effort to target the gang's presence in Harvard."
"The suit falls under the Illinois Street Gang Terrorism Omnibus Prevention Act and aims at the infrastructure of the gang rather than just individual members."
Ever since the Islamist terrorist act that destroyed the twin towers and murdered over three thousand innocent individuals we have seen new laws passed that nibble away at our constitutional rights under the belief that if we do this we will be safer from terrorist strikes.

Today it is the Latin Kings in Harvard; tomorrow might it be the Catholic Church or the Mormons who are deemed "gangs" and a threat to the stability of the United States and the Obama Administration...I don't know...I just know this is a very slippery slope to eventual tyranny.

While I understand the sentiment, I worked armed security for years in low-income housing areas where the Latin Kings were prominent. They deserve no support from any law-abiding citizen.
John, I understand what you are saying; I have two nephews and a niece who are police officers in the city of Chicago.
