Fullerton Tokers Town Gets a Gang Injunction


An Orange County judge signed a permanent gang injunction against Fullerton Tokers Town yesterday, creating a “Safety Zone” that covers a wide swath of south Fullerton as shown below. Members of FTT are now forbidden from associating with each other, intimidating the public, making gang signs, wearing gang clothing, violating curfew and other shenanigans often associated with gang activity.

Twenty-eight members of FTT were named in the suit, nine of whom are apparently already in prison. Current membership is estimated at 125-150 active members.

Gang injunctions allow prosecutors to charge gang members for harassing or intimidating behavior which would not otherwise be a crime. Presumably this will make it easier for the Fullerton Police to crack down on gang members without any conventional crime occurring.

And that’s exactly what makes gang injunctions controversial in Orange County. A few weeks ago the ACLU won a case against the OC DA when a judge determined that naming gang members in the city of Orange without providing them an opportunity to defend themselves in court was a violation of their right to due process. More than 60 alleged Orange Varrio Cypress gang members had tried to appear in court to testify that they were not actually gang members. DA Tony Rackauckas dropped them from the case, but then served the injunction on them anyway.

Bummer.

Rackauckas lost that one, so presumably he was more careful about who he’s calling a gang member here in Fullerton.

    I guess I don’t really understand the map. If the gangbangers move north of Chapman, are they allowed to gangbang again?

    Like they’d really wear a sweatshirt from CSUF or Fullerton College!

    I like it. A map titled “SAFETY ZONE” riddled with gang crime indicators.

    Actually, yes. Just like the Bulldogs in Fresno, they identify with the local team. Anything with a big F on it will do. Did you think they were all Florida Marlins fans, and that’s why they wear the hats?

    Where can we see the list?

    Odale’ puto. My homies may be a bunch of uneducated retards with shaved heads but this is just not fair. We like to tag socially.

    I’m similarly confused. Why not draw the map using a globe rather than a Thomas Guide page? I would make the exclusion zone include all of planet earth except for Iran and Wyzuristan (up until the date when we bomb them back to the stone age). ; – )

    The DA listed them in the complaint linked above.

  10. #10 by Tony's Brain on May 24, 2011

    Oh no, these are my tenants. The DA is forcing them to move from the hood how will I make my money as ” The Slum Lord of Fullerton”?

    One word: ineffective.

  12. #12 by Gonzo, Esq. on May 25, 2011

    Must be election season. No matter how good they sound, gang injunctions are purely political stunts designed to grab headlines and to remind everybody how “tough on crime” our beloved DA is.

    According the article, there are currently about 125-150 active members of FTT. 28 are named in the injuction (9 of whom are incarcerated). I went to law school so I wouldn’t have to do math, but it doesn’t take a mathematician to see the hole in this logic.

    There’s also a trend in several Latino gangs to dress more like college students so as to not attract attention and more easily approach potential victims.

    Haha!

    “College students” dress like hip-hop drug guys already!

    I heard there was a trend where cops are turning into gang members:

  23. #23 by Gilligan on May 26, 2011

    Gonzo,

    Law school obviously did not have a class on gangs for you to take. The 28 members listed are the hardcore, most active and influential gangsters currently out there. They have a large influence on the other gangsters therefore leading to more gang crime. The other 9 maybe incarcerated, but they get out probably sooner than later and will be back at it…So by tageting the main players, it will hopefully have an impact on the whole.

    Could that be the old Gilligan? The one that always bad-mouthed now one-year-in-office County Supervisor Shawn Nelson?

    What happened?

  26. #26 by Tonys STD on May 26, 2011

    Welcome back Gilligan your opinion is always valued here. Much has changed since your last visit, half of the regular Cock Suckers who post here are now either elected or appointed to positions in the City of Fullerton Government. The topics here are usually mean and have nothing to do with constructive debate but for the same reason I can’t but help look at my turd before flushing I keep being drawn back to this shit pile just to read the pearls of wisdom from some of my favorite turds. Did you know Tony spent over 100k of his mommy and daddy’s money to influence the last election in the City of Fullerton?
    Just because he hates brick veneer and anyone he can’t buy.

  27. #27 by Kim on May 27, 2011

    True.

  28. #28 by Anonymous on May 28, 2011

    I hate brick veneer with a passion. Its the very single thing that is ruining this country. I wish this country had more people like Tony, who has the guts to stand up to the people who use brick veneer.

    I don’t care about the piss and shit and vomit and blood all over our sidewalks in the downtown bar area. I care about how ugly brick veneer is.

    I don’t care about gangs either, unless they are using brick veneer on their houses. And we know that ain’t happening because they all rent their house from Tony the Slum Lord. And we all know that Tony hates brick veneer.

    I know that Norby is busy getting married and divorced and having kids when he’s old enough to be a grandfather. I know Nelson is too busy dying his hair and playing fast draw with his new gun in the mirror but maybe at some point those two hot shots can intervene in stopping the brick veneer in our city because our current city council won’t help us.

    GED…GED… I wish, education is overrated just ask Travis.

    You can’t be “educated” unless you have spent your days “taught” by unmotivated, unlettered lunkheads preaching out of outmoded, useless textbooks full of platitudes, lies, and propaganda of one kind or another.
    Then you get “your” degree. A worthless scrap of paper that may as well have been printed on toilet paper. Ditto all those phony Masters and MPA degrees that serve only to enrich public employees, but that convey no real understanding of anything.

    So Hillcrest Park is gang territory too? Sad, sad, sad. I saw tags at Acacia once and called the City and they removed them. Not the gang members tho.

  38. #38 by Anonymous on June 1, 2011

    The problem shouldn’t be the look of a gang member, especially when there is a trend of white boys trying to dress in dickies, bandanas, locs, converse and goat tees. The problem needs to be the bad things gang members do, that way it applies to all because let’s face it, it’s not only gang members from tokers town causing problems in our city. I constantly see run away looking teens smoking out and loitering all over the city, also non gang graffiti, drug addicts asking for change, locals and outsiders driving drunk and fighting after a long night in the downtown bars.

    I remember driving home real late one night and spotting a occasion guy in a trench coat trying to break into a car on chapman/berkley, so let’s not limit laws to just gang members, but push laws to stop the violent things they do, so we can kill 2-3 birds with one stone.

    Sorry about the white boy reference, but I always wonder why the white kid dressed in the same gang attire and old English ratios never gets pulled over or harassed like the mexicans who’s style they mimic.

    Hey, are you the guys who run that bathhouse Twinkles off of Baker? I love that place. I really respect you guys for your openness about your alternative sexuality. People think that gangs are mainly about tagging and driving around drinking 40s out of paper bags, but I understand what its like to be different and to seek solace in the arms of your fellow homeboys. Keep standing up for you what believe in and don’t let anyone tell you that what you’re doing is wrong. Peace out.
