10 Alleged Sureņo Gang Members Indicted In Series Of Murders (San Fran)
CBS SF Bay Area / Channel 5 KPIX ^ | 4/6/18 | Anon - Staff Reporter

A federal grand jury has indicted 10 reputed members of a San Francisco Mission District gang for their alleged roles in several murders dating back more than a decade. The indictment was unsealed on Friday a day after the arrest of six suspects according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Three more suspects are already in federal prison.

The arrests involved a multi-agency operation of about 200 law enforcement officers which included the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and police from San Francisco, Richmond and Pacifica. According to the indictment, the 10 suspects belong to the 19th Street/16 Street Sureños and were involved in seven murders in San Francisco and Richmond between 2006 and 2013.

The suspects were accused of searching for, shooting at, and murdering rival gang members and suspected rival gang members. Nine of those indicted were alleged to have been directly involved in at least one murder, while the tenth was alleged to have helped plan a “hunt” which led to one of the murders.

“Six of these ten accused Sureños gang members arrested were still at large, living in your neighborhood less than 48 hours ago,” said HSI Special Agent in Charge Ryan Spradlin. The effort to bring the men into custody involved close coordination between SFPD and HSI – the investigative arm of ICE, as Spradlin earlier noted in a statement.

“It’s the public who should commend the SFPD for pushing aside misconceptions about our mission and partnering with us in the interest of taking advantage of the critical public safety work HSI does,” said Spradlin.

"I’d like to thank Special Agent in Charge Spradlin, he understand what our laws are, what our policies are, and we have a mutual respect,” said SFPD Chief William Scott.”

This was posted earlier on FR, but the earlier post did not stress the level of cooperation between the federal Dept of Homeland Security and ICE and three SF Bay Area City Police Departments (San Francisco, Richmond and Pacifica). This is great news. I did not previously realize that "the sanctuary laws in California don’t restrict local police from cooperating with ICE in probing serious violent crimes including murder."

The San Jose Mercury News had additional information:
“Successful law enforcement requires that our federal government work closely with our state and local law enforcement partners to eradicate gang violence in our communities,” said Alex Tse, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Bay Area region. “I commend the extraordinary work and coordination that went into executing this phase of the operation to bring these defendants to justice.”

The defendants were identified and face the following charges, most of which prosecutors say were “in aid of racketeering”:

In a news release announcing the indictments, a federal official appeared to take a jab at sanctuary policies in cities like San Francisco and counties like Santa Clara and Alameda,

Ryan Spradin, Special Agent in Charge in the HSI San Francisco field office, lauded SFPD for their cooperation: “Homeland Security Investigations is well equipped in taking accused murderers, who are part of larger transnational criminal organizations, off the streets when we work closely with local law enforcement agencies,” Spradin said in a statement. “The public….should commend the SFPD for pushing aside misconceptions about our mission and partnering with us in the interest of taking advantage of the critical public safety work HSI does.”

So, are some local police officials going to be arrested by the California state police?

That’s the big news here: “the sanctuary laws in California don’t restrict local police from cooperating with ICE in probing serious violent crimes including murder.”

I guess these “dreamers” had a dream of murdering people. I’d say they are nightmares. Isn’t uncontrolled alien invasion wonderful? The same can be said of multicultural/one-worldism.

It’s probably true. What I’ve found from living in an area overrun by illegals..... a lot of the mom and pops coming here really are just looking for a better life. Then they have kids and their little anchor babies all grow up to be thugs. No clue why but it is what it is.
Regardless of whether they’re good or bad people I want them all deported. And changing the stupid anchor baby bs would be one of the most effective ways of dealing with illegal immigration.

If six are here legally, then why is U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) so involved? I agree it smells fishy.
