Reputed Compton gang members to be indicted on civil-rights charges

Richard Winton (Los Angeles Times) | February 8, 2013

The U.S. Attorney’s office is bringing federal civil rights charges against reputed members of a Compton gang arrested for alleged hate crimes against a black family.

U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte and Sheriff Lee Baca plan to announce an indictment Friday morning involving alleged members of Compton Varrio 155, according to several law enforcement sources. Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators and the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the crimes.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s anti-gang investigators last month took into custody two men in connection with the alleged hate crimes tied to a series of attacks on a black family — a mother, three teenage children and a 10-year-old boy and a male visitor to the home.

Sheriff’s detectives last month arrested Jeffrey Aguilar, 19, of Gardena, and Efren Marquez, 21, of the Inland Empire, both alleged members of the Compton Varrio 155 gang. Both were held in county jails on unrelated probation violations for prior crimes.

Sheriff’s investigators allege the pair were involved in the first attack Dec. 31, when a friend came to visit the family and four men in a black SUV pulled up and used a racial slur, saying black people were barred from the neighborhood.

    The funny thing is, that these gangbangers are illegals and not even Americans! As an American, I support our fellow Americans of any race having to deal with this crap from some ignorant, punk kids! 25 years is a good sentence in the feds!
