Good, Its about time!
Just the other day I asked a cop why on earth every drug user knew where to go in Santa Ana to buy drugs but the dealers never seemed to get busted. He told me they didn't waste their time on the dealers because the second one was put in jail, he/she would be replaced. He said they were working at getting the big guys - the guys that worked with the Mexican Mafia that ran the whole operation.
So I was quite surprised to see this in my local paper. It took them TWO YEARS of undercover operations to catch all these guys, but they got 100 of them.
Will it make a difference to the buyers of the drugs? I don't know, but one can only hope. Somehow I doubt it.
Here is the article if interested: 100 Arrested in gang, Mexican Mafia crackdown.
"The multiple arrests, which officials said included “soldiers” and the top echelon of the criminal organization, will deal a “staggering and comprehensive blow,” U.S. attorney representative said."
