Gangs San diego documentingSAN DIEGO – Just because your neighbors are gang members it doesn’t make you a gang member.

That’s the message from dozens of people who peacefully protested at the San Diego County courthouse Sunday.

Some wore hats that read #DocumentMe.

Some said they were wrongly documented by police as gang members.

They said it is ‘guilt by association,’ because they live in an area where there are legitimate gangs.

Brandon Duncan and Aaron Harvey both grew up in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of San Diego, an area that has real gang members.

They were both documented as ‘gang members’ by San Diego Police officers, their names put on a confidential law enforcement list, they said.

They said they have no way to contest or appeal their so-called gang member documentation.

They said police are wrong and they are guilty by association.

Neither has a criminal record.

Both Duncan and Harvey were arrested and spent months in jail after they were arrested and charged with conspiracy for gang shootings they knew nothing about.
