Gang Member Have Rights Too - ACLU

American Civil Liberties Union (ALCU) v. Orange County District Attorney (OCDA) Tony Rackauckas and Orange Police Department (OPD) Chief Robert Gustafson

Posted By CotoBlogzz 

Rancho Santa Margarita -  The ACLU is suing to enjoin the OCDA from enforcing gang injunctions in defense of gang member rights in case #SACV09-1090.  In response, the OCDA and OPD have bowed to defend the  lawsuit, beginning today, Monday, Nov. 8, 2010 and  expected to last for approximately 20 court days. 

On july 7, 2010, the OCDA warned  members of an Anaheim criminal street gang  that they have been permanently enjoined from terrorizing the community and acting as a public nuisance in the eighth civil gang injunction to be brought against an Orange County gang. This was the second injunction in the City of Anaheim and the second to be brought against the institution of the gang as the sole defendant.
