Posted on 06/24/2014 1:32:34 AM PDT by Libloather
Police on horseback and clad in riot gear arrested several rowdy soccer fans as they worked to disperse crowds who poured into the streets of Huntington Park on Monday following Mexicos latest win in the World Cup.
Huntington Park police, with support from the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department, said they arrested four people, including two for public intoxication, one for hurling a bottle and another for refusing to leave the area.
Significant traffic delays were reported across the city. Authorities closed off several blocks of the heavily trafficked Pacific Boulevard shopping corridor north of Florence Avenue. Drivers were advised to avoid the area and pedestrians were urged to stay out of the streets.

Could use a few of those at the border.
By 2020 they’ll be taking their lives into their own hands. But by then the police will probably be majority Latino, so there will be no such arrests, I imagine.
So the Republico de Mexifornia won a fuuuuuuuuuutbowl game?
Its not like they won the whole enchilada down there in Donna Brazile. Celebrate divershitty.
The problem started way back over a century or two ago when they named about half the cities and towns in California with spanish names. Now the southern invaders think its theirs by name association.
California was settled by Spaniards...the now state was a series of ranchos. California history is intertwined with Spanish who settled here and in Mexico.
The media is pushing soccer.
Something about multiculturalism I guess. This country doesn’t do soccer.
California was in no way settled by Spaniards.
From 1769 to 1846 there were never more then 7000 men, women and children of Spaniard descent in “Alta California”.
Contrast that with a population of 300,000 Indians in the 1770s to about 150000 Indians by 1846 through death by smallpox and abuse.
Oh and...30000 white Anglos in the Sacramento area by the time of the Bear Flag rebellion.
The entire “Spanish” period - later Mexican after the end of the Mexican revolution in 1821 - was an abortive attempt to control an area that they couldn’t possibly colonize, support, or defend.
It was a comic joke ended by a few minor battles won by United States Army and Navy forces.
California was settled and built by American people. Had it remained Mexico...it would have been invaded by Russia and Britain.
Mexico’s claim to the entire Western Hemisphere is a ludicrous delusion inspired by the equally ludicrous assertion of the Pope in 1495 that Spain owned all of the Western Hemisphere from the 46th parallel west.
And the claim to California is one that can only be sustained by conflict, which is what they are conducting against the United States at this moment.
Yeah, two of them..... please!
On September 28, 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo entered San Diego Bay--the first Europeans to visit California.
Catholic Franciscans built Missions all the way up to Northern California (1769-1833). The first European settlement on the Pacific Coast was the Presidio at San Diego (1769). Father Junipero Serra was influential in establishing the 21 Missions extending up through San Francisco. This aided in coastal colonization of the Spanish in California. Indigenous people that were already living in this region were converted to Christianity.
The Spanish established a total of four Presidios or military districts including San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterrey and San Francisco.
Mexico did not factor in until they won their independence from Spain in 1821, ... but they lost the "Alta California" territory after the Bear Flag revolt which established a Republic of California.
After that came the gold rush and with it new settlers seeking fortunes (from all over the world). Then came statehood... September 9, 1850, California became a state.
Uh...live here and in the states next door for all my life.
Some of us remember California when the Mexican presence was limited to East LA.
The state was not in any sense "settled" by Spain. A few miserable outposts trying to convert the Indians so they could credibly be called "Subjects" of the King of Spain does not mean settled. If you walked the length of California in 1833 you would have been hard pressed to run into anyone of Spanish descent, unless you intentionally went to where they were.
The reason the whole thing collapsed in the face of American settlement was precisely because their numbers were so few and their support non-existent. The Spanish Caudillos who ran Mexico City had no interest in far away adventures - and California is a thousand miles from Mexico City over a terrifying desert.
I have been to most of the 21 missions you cite in the high school history text. While a few are remarkable - but not as remarkable as San Xavier Del Bac - most are adobe lodges, protected from collapse by ongoing maintenance.
And one thing you always notice with them is...you have to work hard to find them. Twenty One buildings in the length of California?
It's a joke.
The "settlements" were tiny, although the land grants were huge. The absurdity of a few grubby Alcaldes and Gobernadors dividing up hundreds of thousands of acres among themselves was rightfully scoffed at by the Americans as they arrived: Vallejo "owned" 250,000 acres in what is now Sonoma County, land that was so vast that he was unable to force even a fraction of the squatters off of it when they came in the 1840's.
It's the genesis of adverse possession property laws in California.
So you go right on believing what you want. You have all of Mexico on your side.
But I have the reality of California, which is that it was truly settled and then built by the Americans.
History is history... you can try to rewrite it but the truth remains. You may have lived here all your life as have I, but your knowledge of the history of this state is faulty.
Nah. You're just a sympathizer with the Reconquista, and the overblown, pompous self image of the Mexican rabble's "leaders".
Having done my own research I rejected the overemphasized "Spanish Period" of California as being significant, because it wasn't.
It's just another example of the grungy, filthy, cruel and backwards Spanish Empire, which never accomplished anything except the astonishingly failed states of Latin America, who still to this day seethe with hatred of the success of the Gringo Protestant colossus known as the United States of America.
Perhaps you have a problem with that and wish to live under the thumb of Spaniard Caudillos who are nothing more then thugs and bullies, and have contempt for the "gusanos" they step on.
No problem to do that. Just move South.
But please don't make excuses for them or hype up their disgusting and abortive attempt to impose their nauseating thugocracy on North America either 200 years ago or now. It was a shocking nightmare for all involved then and is destroying what WAS the most beautiful state in America now.
We were in London years ago on the weekend of the big England V. Scotland soccer match.
The worst thing I saw happen was the Brits and the Scots stood across the street from each other yelling and waving their fists at each other. Both sides were falling down drunk too.
I have considered the Brits and the Scots as wimps ever since.
