In 2006, Judge David Yaffe approved the DA's request to enjoin the Jungles, a neighborhood in South LA where a gang called Black P Stones are located. The injunction gives broad powers to the LAPD that allows them to search, frisk, detain, photograph, arrest, and question any person that they "suspect" to be a gang member. Officer Brian Thayer, known in the Jungles as Jackie Chan, is a gang cop that works the Baldwin Village area.

The goal of the injunction was to "shut down the gang" but several years later the gang is still there and they are still warring with the 18th Street gang. Even after the FBI came in under "Operation Stone Cold" the community is still plagued with ongoing social challenges that limits the opportunities for young people growing up here.

The injunction, for many allows the police to legally harass people youth and young adults. Being under this court oder allows the police to treat an individual as if they were on parole without having committed a crime.

Split on the commentary here. A bunch of people in a known "blood" gang area all wearing gang colors. Nooooooooo, there's no gang affiliation there! It's a sad condition the United States is in. As "ThisIsAUsername" stated, the cops should just give up and let the animals kill one another off.

Homicides and violent crime in America has dropped 50% in the last 20 years.  Its happened in every state and every city.  Gang injunctions most likely have nothing to do with crime dropping.

You know unfortunately the police have no choice other than to be on the spot and show their presence. They're damned if they do, damned if they don't. I don't see what they're doing [in this video] as harassment. That particular neighbourhood had or still has the highest gang-related murder rate in South Central. 28 murders and 1,500 assaults reported between 2000-2005 in the Baldwin Village area ALONE. Umm what the f*** you expect these cops to do???

Judges don't give police authority. Congress is the only one that can do that, with laws. In the real world, the government is just another gang, that does whatever it wants.

That's so fucked up, these cops are just being bitches because they are illiterate and can't handle it when they are confronted by people who know their rights and speak up when harassed. Nice way to ruin a beautiful day at the park!
