    CA-New threat puts Calif. police on heightened alert

    New threat puts Calif. police on heightened alert
    Mar 20, 2010 (6:30p CDT)

    HEMET, Calif. - The tense atmosphere surrounding a California police department plagued by booby trap attacks has been stepped up a notch following the latest threat against officers.

    Someone called 911 at about 5:45 p.m. Friday saying a police car would be blown up in the Hemet-San Jacinto area in the next 24 to 48 hours, Hemet Police Chief Richard Dana said.

    "We're heightening the alert," Dana told The Press-Enterprise. The caller said the attack would be in retaliation for the law enforcement sweep against the Vagos Motorcycle Club earlier this week.

    Riverside police officers targeted with threat to blow up police car
    March 20, 2010 | 7:43 am

    Riverside County authorities are investigating yet another threat received Friday against police officers in Hemet.

    On Friday afternoon, someone called 911 saying a police car would be blown up in the next two days as revenge for a law-enforcement sweep earlier this week of a local motorcycle gang.

    RivCo DA: Hemet-San Jacinto area is ‘ground zero’ for gang activity
    Thursday, March 18, 2010

    Even as they announced an increase in the reward for information about those behind the attempts on the lives of Hemet gang task force members, officials on Thursday had ominous words for residents of the San Jacinto Valley.

    Authorities crack down on Vagos

    He hinted, though, that the news conference would bring news about the reward that has been posted for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the gang task force attacks.

    Pacheco said Wednesday’s sweep would not be the last.

    “You’ve got to hit them over and over,” he said, with the goal of ending their ability to commit violent acts.

    Pacheco said the Vagos club is unique among Riverside County biker gangs because it was formed here, in Temescal Canyon between Lake Elsinore and Corona.

    Its members are also more prone to attacks on law enforcement officers than most other outlaw motorcycle gangs, he said.

    This is so disturbing for me in more ways then one, which of course is what they are trying to acomplish.
    These gangs just keep growing and are a huge problem to society, they are a menace no doubt.
    We as a society need to step up and stand up or else this is what we will continue to see. People in areas that are gang ridden have a tendency to look the other way due to fear of retaliation which in return fuels the fire....

    Trucks burned in possible threat to Calif. police
    Mar 24, 2010 (5:05p CDT)
    By THOMAS WATKINS (Associated Press Writer)

    LOS ANGELES - Four municipal trucks were set ablaze in a rural Riverside County town plagued by bizarre booby trap attempts to kill police officers, and authorities said Wednesday the fire may be linked to the earlier attacks.

    "Everyone is worried, everyone is being careful," said police Lt. Duane Wisehart. "You get scared a little bit and then you get angry. It keeps happening."

    Someone called police around 11:10 p.m. Tuesday to report a fire in the parking lot at Hemet City Hall, located within two blocks of the police department, Police Chief Richard Dana said. No one was hurt.

    Hemet is the New Jersey of California.

    If I had to live there, I'd blow up something, too--myself.

    (I especially hate it when criminals target public servants.)
