Early in the morning of January 3rd, in front of the main entrance of the newest Safeway in the newest shopping center in Marin County, there was a hit. A gangland hit. Two men sitting in a car were shot to pieces in the Novato Hamilton Safeway parking lot. The victims are hanging by a thread, the police think it is gang related.
Novato, California is my town. This is my Safeway, two miles from my home.
With a population of 50,000 and located in Marin County, twenty-five miles north of the big red bridge and the People’s Republic of San Francisco, Novato is the kind of quiet affluent community families love to live in. The public schools aren’t too bad, which in California is pretty good. We’re close enough to the city that if you want to go there you can. We’re far enough away that, unless you insist on watching the local news, you don’t see the detritus and nuttiness of the San Francisco.
Now, Novato isn’t Mayberry, but we don’t expect it to be Los Angeles, either.
Five illegal alien gang members were arrested about two months ago on a residential street with two shotguns, a machete, a baseball bat and drugs.
We’ve had other shootings recently, all gang related. Drive-by shootings. We had a police officer assaulted as part of a gang initiation. When confronted the officer showed the “youth” his badge, and was assaulted anyway. He must have really wanted to join that gang. And, you made it, didn't you, pachuco?
It’s kinda like living in the violent era of the Mafia gangs before Lucky Luciano wised them up to not doing violence where civilians might get caught in the crossfire.
Two years ago the Marin County Grand Jury ID'd a lot of our local gangs as being illegal alien gangs. We've got Norteños, Sureños, 13th Street, 18th Street, and our own home grown punks.
Across the country gang violence continues to increase and local governments continue to be impotent in response. Hell, local governments are nearly as responsible as the federal government in the increase of gangs and gang violence over the past 20 years.
Most of it is perpetrated by illegal alien gang members, or anchor baby gang members, or is drug related which is, of course, directly related to illegal alien drug gangs and the wide open border that the federal government willfully refuses to control.
In town after town in California in the 1990s citizens were beseeching city councils to do something about the increase in illegal aliens and illegal alien crime. The lame excuse they received from worthless elected officials was that it was, “The federal government’s problem.”
“No,” we would respond, as if we were actually talking to representatives who were competent, at least honest. “It is a federal responsibility, but it is our problem.” It was to little or no avail.
The Chamber of Commerce supports unrestrained legal and illegal immigration because of the cheap labor and new customers it provides. The aging baby boomer consumers must be replaced and who better to replace us with then people who come with nothing and who want everything, illegal aliens from Mexico.
And when it comes to the Chamber most governments are obsequious . We have the best government money can buy. The problem is we are always paying for it. Continually.
Novato was once rural, then suburban. Now it is increasingly urban in the problems it has, and that includes illegal alien gang problems.
We don’t know all the facts of this attempted multiple murder, yet. And when we find out that is was mostly illegal aliens involved, the usual suspects will cry out that we can’t paint all “immigrants” with the same brush, the usual twaddle.
And when we bring it up at the city council meeting next week, some or all of the council will go out of their way to admonish everyone not to engage in "racial profiling." I really feel confident making these predictions.
A group of us are trying to get Novato to adopt E-verify for all the reasons you know. They won’t. They have broken the law to avoid adopting E-Verify. The Chamber of Commerce opposes E-Verify.
Some of us have seen this coming and have asked the local government to do something about it and they have proven to be useless.
But, we may yet prevail. We may see some law enforcement designed to discourage illegal aliens from coming to Novato, or at least from coming to commit their crimes in Novato. But, a price will have to be paid before that happens. And the payment will be in blood. It will be paid with innocent victim’s blood.
Have you noticed that when governments finally do act to address a really serious problem it is usually only after the body count has become noticeable?
