This is no surprise.

If you read related stories to the raid that took place this morning, the residents in the gang-bang area are upset with the timing of the raid an arrests and are complaining!
They took several KNOWN gangbagers into custody today, 40 illegal guns, several pounds of Meth and they're complaining rather than being elated. It's reported the cops were yelled and cursed at as they performed the raids.

These people can't be helped. I have NO sympathy for them. NONE, ZILCH.

"During the yearlong investigation, authorities seized 11 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and 40 guns, including assault-style rifles, sawed-off shotguns and a pistol believed used in a killing, authorities said."

And us the general public are supposed to believe these are good kids, fathers, sons, etc.

Pure ignorance!
Only yelling and cursing greeted the patrol car after a sweep Friday morning that resulted in the arrest of 33 suspected gang members.

"They said they're trying to help us, but they're making fun of us. I didn't think that was friendly," said 18-year-old Jennifer Navarro. "No, I don't feel better about them."

In the neighborhood where the sweep was conducted Friday morning, the operation was largely met with mistrust.
"I told (officers) this was retribution for what had been happening," said Elvia Navarro, whose son Victor Gonzalez was among those arrested. "It's revenge."

truth is alot of "these people" don't know nothing else but to live/survive in the hood. The families of those who were taken are upset ofcourse. And will continue talking back at the police for doing "their job". Alot of these teens/adults missed something in their lives as they were growing up (male role model/father) and thats why they start hangin with the wrong crowd. It is no excuse but maybe if they would of have more attention or progrms but ...thats past. I know by the article that the families talk good about their kids, maybe yes they were going to school or working but im sure that its extremly hard to get out of the gang lifestyle when you live in the "hood". I can write a whole twenty pages about this topic, but my point is... The police won't arrest a "normal" citizen of Anaheim, they do have "bad" cops but other than that they do their job. Im all grown up now, I see both sides and I think about my newphews and kids. I don't want them going through the same bull sh!t over and over...once my history teacher told me " history is there so we can learn from it and don't repeat it again".......... man I miss school :/
