    The Latin Kings in Little Village wanted to kill Robert and Amy Castaneda.
    Thugs ruling the corner of 30th and Drake twice tried to burn down their house — soaking the porch with gasoline and setting it ablaze while the young couple slept inside — because Rob had called the police after a shooting and showed investigators where gang-bangers had stashed the gun.

    But it wasn’t until one particular Latin King — a short gang-banger with a loud mouth — chucked a bottle through Rob and Amy’s front window on a frigid Sunday in February 2000 while shouting drunken threats — “Die, m-----------. die!” — that any of them got caught.

    The bottle chucker pleaded guilty and spent three years in jail. The others spent up to six years in prison for aggravated arson. Some were charged under the Mireles Law, which aims to protect community volunteers from gang intimidation.

    They considered moving to a safer neighborhood. They even put their house up for sale. Ultimately, they decided the Latin Kings would not scare them away. So they stayed.

    More than that, Rob and Amy dedicated themselves to helping Little Village kids have a place to play and a chance to stay out of gangs.
    They started an after-school basketball program, Beyond the Ball, and it became popular with kids who might otherwise be hanging on corners like the guys who set their front door on fire. Thousands of kids have played in their leagues and practices.

    Nearly a decade after the damage from the fires and that bottle had been repaired, Rob and Amy found themselves face-to-face with one of their attackers.

    They were not afraid.

    The Gang-banger — the loud, drunken one who wished them dead through the hole in their front window — needed their help.

    Little Village is a Latino infested area of Chicago that shows how these people bring crime and violence everywhere they are. All you have to do to bring the same to YOUR neighborhood is to sit there and do nothing.

    If I were Emperor I would declare:

    "Anyone found with gang tattoos may be killed on the spot. No trial, no jury, just an executioner".

    "Anyone seen dealing drugs may be killed in a similar manner".

    "Anyone seen crossing our border illegally, north or south, may be killed in a similar manner".

    Hey, American and British troops after WWII rounded up former Nazi's, identified them and executed them on the spot (usually in an alleyway). This was called the "De-Nazification" of Germany. It's an historical fact.

    Why can't we do the same thing with Gang Members? I guarantee the FBI, CIA and local Law Enforcement have thick binders of info about 90% of the current gang population. We could take back our streets very quickly.

    If you feel that way, you'll love the way Latin Americans take care of the problem:


    The inability of the police to tackle the gangs has spawned vigilante groups such as El Salvador's Sombra Negra (Black Shadow), which has been gunning down deported youths since 1994. Death squads have caught on in Honduras, too, where human rights workers say they've killed over 180 gang members over the past two years. Suspected of being off-duty cops and soldiers hired by local businessmen, these groups are not particularly discriminating. "Any kid who has a tattoo is fair game," says Human Rights Commission member Hugo Maldonado. Sociologist Ernesto Bordales concurs. "The general feeling here is that the only way to deal with the gangs is to kill them all. "

    But many of the vigilantes are simply local men pushed too far by the gang- bangers' reign of terror. Last Spring in Villanueva, a shantytown on the edge of San Pedro Sula, homeboys, high on crack, raped and killed a young teenage girl and her mother, hacking their breasts off. The screams brought neighbors who, according to Villanueva police chief Valentino Sandoval, "more or less lynched the gang". After that, there was no shortage of armed men volunteering for nightly anti-gang patrols.

    Just as often, though, San Pedro Sula's gangs do an excellent job of exterminating each other. Seventeen-year-old Cesar was spotted ambling down the street in his liquid, druggy gait by a bunch of 18 members. Once they zeroed in on the MS tattoos on his forehead, Cesar was cornered and shot four times, in the chest, his shoulders and legs.

    His wounds healed, he and seven other gang members are sitting in a muddy backyard behind an empty house. The homeboy who lives there with his mother is a crackhead who has pawned off everything in the house except for a photograph on the wall of his runaway father.
    In the alley, a white jeep with smoky windows rumbles by, and the MS boys leap up. The 18 have been driving around the neighborhood in a similar white jeep, smashing in doors of MS houses and spraying everybody inside, grandmothers and children, with Uzis. Isidra Benegas, the mother of the crackhead, curses, "These deportees from the U.S. are to blame. They've brought the crack and the killing." A flicker of guilt crosses Cesar's face. He belonged to an MS chapter in Eagle Pass, Texas, before he was deported back to Honduras. "It's either live in the gang, or die," he retorts. And Cesar knows his death may be riding in the next passing car.
