So Santa Ana now has an all-Latino City Council, a Latino City Manager and a Latino Chief of Police. But why then are the cops still conducting DUI checkpoints that rarely catch drunk drivers and most often result in harassing immigrants? And why are they still going after cruisers on Easter and Cinco de Mayo? And what is this business with putting immigrants in our city jail?
Not to mention all of these Latino city officials watching as our downtown gets cleansed of Latinos in order to mollify out of town hipsters.
If you think the cruiser busts are good policing check out this post by a resident who actually observed what was going on in the latest Easter cruising crackdown:
