Gang injunction granted in Echo Park

Hailey Branson-Potts (Los Angeles Times) | September 26, 2013

A Los Angeles County court granted a permanent injunction Thursday against six gangs in Echo Park and its surrounding neighborhoods, according to the city attorney’s office.

The injunction seeks to prohibit known members of the Big Top Locos, Crazys, Diamond Street Locos, Echo Park Locos, Frogtown and Head Hunters street gangs from associating with each other in public, possessing firearms or narcotics, or possessing alcohol in public, officials said.

“We’ve got to be tough on violent gang activity, and gang injunctions such as this one … are an important step,” Los Angeles City Atty. Mike Feuer said in a statement.

The city’s lawyers filed the Echo Park injunction in June. It creates a 3.8-square-mile “safety zone” in Echo Park, Elysian Valley, Historic Filipinotown and portions of Silver Lake, court documents state.

The injunction also includes Echo Park Lake and Dodger Stadium; it is bound by the Los Angeles River to the north, the 110 Freeway to the east, First Street to the south and North Coronado Street to the west.

Superior Court Judge Abraham Khan ruled that city attorneys presented “clear and convincing evidence” that the injunction was necessary.

The gangs named — each of which is a “violent turf-based predominantly Hispanic criminal street gang,” court documents state — have fought for years, according to the city attorney’s office. The feuding has led to extensive graffiti vandalism, aggravated assaults, shootings, attempted murders and murders, court documents state.
