White Biker Thugs on a Rampage in Arizona — Meanwhile, Cops Stay Focused on Latino/as

While law enforcement in Arizona, led by fascists like Joe Arpaio, stay focused on harassing Latino/as, and eagerly hope for a judge to give the go ahead for enforcement of the racist SB1070, white biker thugs are showing everyone what real crime and deviance look like. Just outside of Prescott — one of the seedbeds of anti-Latino hysteria in the state — members of the Hell’s Angels and the Vagos engaged in a shootout on Saturday, just one of several turf war battles between the two white gangs. Earlier this year, similar violence broke out in Santa Cruz. Of course, if these were black or Latino gangs, police would likely have killed a couple of folks, not just arrested them. Looks like our friends in Arizona need to worry about home grown deviance, on the part of white guys who like to ride around on bikes and sell drugs, rather than migrant laborers who come to the U.S. in search of opportunity and jobs. I know that between biker thugs and Mexicans, there’s no doubt which folks I’d rather have in this country…
