They should do what Wyatt Earp did,is they see's a Red Bandana shoot them. ??)
There are laws in place, the RICO act.Captain Will said:I think it's an attempt to assert dominance (respect) over other gangs. There really isn't much downside, since the cops are already looking to do whatever they can to combat the bloods anyway. However the bloods now come off as the number one player in the hood since they are declaring war on the cops. There are Madison avenue PR guys that would have signed off on this one.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, I think it would be great if the police reached out and got aid from all of their brothers in blue across the nation and put uniforms on every corner and locked up every blood in sight. There are about 40K NYC cops, I think we could spare 5K or so, some local cops too, send them all down to help out. I'm sure many would be glad to go, the other ones can stay and pick up the extra workload.
We need to hang a felony on each one of these guys so then we can criminalize their gang association- or- we need to change the law so that membership in a known CSG (criminal street gang) is, in itself, a crime. Which I think I would vote for, individual right to self expression taking a back seat to law enforcement for members of known and established criminal enterprises.
Of course that also means the end of OBG's like the Hell's Angels / Mongols/ etc. that IMO waaaaaaayyyyy too many people thing are endearing instead of gangs just like the Bloods and Crips and Kings, but with motorcycles.
Or maybe we could just drive the Bloods out of the USA, it seems to have worked in Uruguay, they sent all the damn Tupas over here......
