The gang traces its roots to the punk rock subculture in Long Beach in the 1980s. It soon shifted its base to nearby Orange County and in the 1990s began recruiting what police call "bored latchkey kids" _ white teenagers from upper-middle class neighborhoods.
Bored latchkey kids????? Are you kidding me. That is the problem these days, I do not hink issues like this are dealt with when they begin, and unfortuantely, they turn into something bigger!
The white supremacist gang Public Enemy No. 1 began two decades ago as a group of teenage punk-rock fans from upper-middle class bedroom communities in Southern California.
Police say the gang has compiled a "hit list" targeting five officers and a gang prosecutor _ a sign of just how brazen Public Enemy has become.
I am so shocked that they feel they can do nothing about this.
"They make police officers very, very nervous," said Cpl. Nate Booth, a gang detective with the Buena Park Police Department in Orange County.
I don't blame these officers for being nervous, they are the ones out there dealing with it. And feeling like they have no support has to be scary!
