A Latino street gang terrorized and murdered black people in Highland Park for six years in an effort to keep them out of their territory

John Spano:

"Kenneth Wilson was killed because he was black, because he was in Highland Park and because the Avenues gang members had promised each other, had agreed that they would drive African Americans out of the neighborhood, by threats, by force, by murder," Assistant U.S. Atty. Alex Bustamante told jurors.

Prosecutors used a federal hate crimes law, based on the 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlawing slavery, to prosecute the defendants, along with conspiracy charges, in Wilson's death.

The defense claimed without success that the federal government has no power to involve itself in a common street crime, such as Wilson's 1999 murder in a car in Highland Park.

The defendants are Gilbert Saldana, Alejandro Martinez, Fernando Cazares and Porfirio Avila. The trial opened under extraordinary security in the Edward R. Roybal Courthouse downtown, with federal officers blanketing all exits from the courtroom.

The defendants sat behind three rising rows of seats opposite the jury, each shackled to the floor.

The restraints were behind an elaborate set of risers that make them invisible to others in the courtroom.

Defense attorney Reuven L. Cohen urged jurors to keep an open mind and to reject testimony from three former Avenues gang members who he said turned government informants to curry favor with prosecutors.

One of them, David Cruz, a convicted, deported felon who was brought into the U.S. to testify for the government, was at the center of a series of hearings before U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson leading up to the trial.

The alleged conspiracy included multiple assaults on blacks, and prosecutors said they have linked two other killings to the scheme.

"They wanted all blacks out of that neighborhood, not just African American men, not just African American gang members but all African American women and children," Bustamante said.

You mean your Pakistani brainwashing taught you that you weren't cowards contrary to your actual history? Wherever the ancestors of the Pakistani/Bangladeshi/Indian Muslims' Hindu/Buddhist Ancestors fought they were slaughtered, raped and forced to convert. You hear of tales in which Indians were conquered, subjugated and raped? Those are your ancestors, you coward. Your ancestors were such cowards and traitors that they converted to pisslam out of fear. Hindus/Sikhs won many victories over the Muslims. In fact just prior to the British takeover there was a Hindu Revival in which Indian kings ruled over the Muslims and forced them to pay a tax for being Muslim or revert to Indian religions. In fact up until the second millennium invaders had not even been able to penetrate inner India. The Battle of Rajasthan kicked out the invading umayyads. Mahmoud of Ghazni invaded, plundered and looted the area around modern day pakistan in 1000 AD. However it wasn't until the 13th century did the Islamic hordes have access to the plains of North India. At that point the majority BUDDHIST territories of Afghanistan ,West Punjab and Kashmir became Islamic. Nearly all of the Buddhists were slaughtered and murdered in an orgy of sheer terror. However, The process of converting Hindus who held up a tremendous resistance proved to be far more difficult. Even though victorious, the Islamic hordes did not put an end to the Hindu resistance. It was only at this point when the religious and academic institutions had been mauled and demolished by the Islamic hordes did the caste system ossify and Sanskrit education nearly vanish. However hundreds of Rajahs and Maharajahs maintained independent states during the time of the Islamic invasions. Vijaynagara, the Gajapati Kings in Orissa, and Punjab under Jasrath/Khokhar rose in spite of the Muslims to take them to battle and succeeded. During the mughal seige of the Chittoor Fortress Hindus literally fought to the last man, woman and child.The obstinacy of the Hindus eventually led Akbar to ignore the principles of Islam for the time being and allowed Hindus to maintain their religion and cultural traditions, in exchange for political alliances, in contrast to most other Muslim kings. After Aurengzeb's proselytizing zeal led to the collapse of the Mughal's vast empire, the Rajputs, Marathis, Sikhs, Bundelas etc. A number of hindu states emerged from the ashes of the Mughal empire. The Mughals, note only ruled the vast territory of India for about 150 years. The British, 90 years. Muslim rulers were never comfortable in Northern India until the British conquest. For thousands of years invaders had wanted to claim India only to be turned away, until the early second millennium. The Persians, Rashiduns, etc only occupied a few territories west of the Indus at most. Alexander was defeated and marched back to Greece claiming to be a hero, even though there exists no record of Alexander's army occupying that part of India. Even Columbus wanted to find India. India had been along with China the first and second largest economies during the world for most of recorded history. When the Arabs were still barefoot and living in caves they only wished they could be in India. Thousands of Hindu/Buddhist temples across India/Bangladesh/Pakistan were looted and converted into mosques. Carbon dating tests on the Taj Mahal revealed that parts are 300 years older than Shah Jahan's reign. Johan Albert Mandelslo visited Agra in 1638 and never mentioned the "taj Mahal" once in his memoirs. The design of the Taj Mahal is also very typical of Hindu architecture and was likely built by Indian artisans and architects.

In fact Islamic architecture was originally so pathetic that they had to borrow Persian Zoroastrian styling in order to make their hideous masjids look semi-descent. Muslims are nothing more than thieves and pirates who emulate Muhammad's original band of caravan bandits and slave traders.
