You know, I had a response to this thread written up last night and I was pretty sure I had not posted it. I think I even finished with the phrase "warm & fuzzy" so when I read this:

Doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy! What do you think they do the other 364 days a year? Try Homicide, Rape, Extortion, Armed robbery, Kidnapping, Drug sales, Narcotic manufacturing, Assault, and Witness Intimidation. How do I know....22 years as a LEO working the gang task force.
I thought, "Wow! Did I post that?" No, I didn't...

First off, every group has their extremists. To characterize a global organization based on your exposure to a very small percentage of their population is - *AHEM* -


Last I checked, that was looked down upon by most LEO organizations around the world.

22 years of experience puts your career at '91-'92 (ish?). So you would've been pretty green when Rodney King was beaten and riots ensued. You would've been a little more experienced when a couple of white high school kids terrorized Columbine, CO. ~10-years deep when someone flew a plane into the World Trade Center. Etc. we still dislike African-American truck drivers? Do we still distrust high school students who listen to metal? Do we still consider anybody from the Middle East a "threat" to 'Mericuh!

Or...did our prejudice progress from each of these incidents (and countless others) and now we are more tolerant of individuals and less tolerant of malicious activity. It seems to me you could use a little attitude adjustment when it comes to gang activity and gang members. Maybe you *HAVE* witnessed a lot of "bad" during your career, but does that also mean we must grown callous to the positive at the same time?

Yes, continue to dislike
Homicide, Rape, Extortion, Armed robbery, Kidnapping, Drug sales, Narcotic manufacturing, Assault, and Witness Intimidation
, but, please, do not dislike kindness, generosity, and the public displays of socially positive actions.

If you want to support a holistic organization, I suggest the Tibetan monks. If you're looking for something a little more tangible, maybe try Bikers Against Child Abuse.

Bikers Against Child Abuse International

I'm sure some BACA members are cross-members with the HA, so maybe that's not pure enough for some folks around here.

Wasn't that kinda how Hitler was motivated? By purity standards?
