The Ethnic Cleansing Continues In US!

Source: Press Telegram
Two days after authorities announced a crackdown on gangs, a man was shot in the Harbor Gateway area early Saturday in a chilling attack with similarities to recent shootings believed to be gang-related.

The victim, a black man with no known gang ties, was shot once in the chest by a Latino gunman who opened fire without uttering a word at about 2 a.m. in the 22500 block of Harvard Boulevard, just about a mile and a half south of where 14-year-old Cheryl Green was shot to death. The man survived.

“We believe this shooting involved a gang member, although we’re not sure it was a race-based shooting,” said South Bureau Chief Charlie Beck, who called it a “cowardly incident.”

Beck characterized the attack as unprovoked. The victim is a 34-year-old father who was picking up a friend of his daughter after a birthday celebration, Beck said.

“This was a callous and a brutal crime,” he said. There appeared to be no other motivation, such as robbery, he said.

The recent activity in the Harbor Gateway area - a narrow strip of neighborhoods linking downtown Los Angeles to the harbor in San Pedro - has put residents on edge.

The man’s family drove him to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released. Beck said he was very fortunate that he was not killed. The gunman, described as between 25 and 30 years old, fired multiple rounds from a small-caliber handgun, with just one bullet striking the victim in the chest.

A recent rise in gang violence with an apparent racial component has alarmed residents and authorities alike and last week sparked the announcement of a crackdown on gangs. In the Harbor area in December, two people with no known gang ties were killed in what authorities believe were gang attacks.

Cheryl Green, a black Stephen White Middle School student, was talking with friends on Dec. 15 at 206th Street and Harvard Boulevard, the edge of gang territory considered “off limits” to blacks, when a young Latino man approached and opened fire. Two Latino gang members have been charged with murder and a hate crime in the killing.
