    Judge Grants Amendments to Oxnard Gang Injunctions

    Judge Kent Kellegrew granted the District Attorney’s motion to amend two Oxnard gang injunctions. With this outcome, the Oxnard Police Department and the District Attorney’s Office will shortly reinitiate enforcement of the injunctions against the city’s most active gang members.

    The amendments add specific language regarding the process by which individuals may be subject to the injunctions. The procedural safeguards include a judicial determination regarding whether the person is an active gang member who should be enjoined from certain activities within the prescribed safety zone of each injunction. Prohibited activities include associating with other known gang members, witness intimidation, possessing firearms, or using gang gestures. In response to today’s ruling, District Attorney Gregory D. Totten noted, “The gang injunctions have proven to be an effective tool for law enforcement in minimizing the criminal activities of Oxnard’s most violent and active gang members.”

     

    The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office is the public prosecutor for the county’s 850,000 residents. The office employs approximately 280 employees including attorneys, investigators, victim advocates, and other professional support staff who strive to seek justice, ensure public safety, and protect the rights of crime victims.

    I am so glad to hear this. Lock them up! We don’t need our kids growing up amongst these criminals. I’m glad and am thankful for those making an effort to keep our community safe from these cockroaches.

    I’m so glad that we have a justice system that is not politicized like some cities on both coasts and places like Chicago.

    Speaking from experience, 33 years with LAPD, I can say with authority that gang injunctions work. It is not the only tactic but they certainly beat blaming everyone but the gang member for the problem. Thank the judge. Thank the DA for not rolling over. Thank the Police Department for their effort. Legal consequences for one’s actions has a positive impact in decreasing crime. Lock them up.
