A federal grand jury has indicted two members of the Compton 155 street gang on federal hate crime charges related to a racially motivated attack on four African-American juveniles at a residence in the city of Compton, Calif., on New Year’s Eve.

Jeffrey Aguilar, aka “Terco,” 19, and Efren Marquez Jr., who is also known as “Stretch” and “Junior,” 21, were named in a five-count indictment returned late yesterday by the grand jury.

The indictment specifically charges Aguilar and Marquez with one count of conspiracy to interfere with housing rights and four counts of interfering with housing rights. The indictment alleges that they attempted to intimidate African-Americans from living in Compton.

Aguilar and Marquez allegedly are members of the Compton 155 street gang, which uses violence and threats of violence in an effort to drive African-Americans out of their “territory” on the west side of Compton. According to the indictment, members of the Compton 155 gang often refer to themselves as “NK” or “N***** Killers.” To instill fear in African-Americans, members of the gang tag their gang moniker and “NK” throughout their “territory.”

“Hate-fueled crimes have no place in our society,” said U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California Andre Birotte Jr. “No one should have to look over their shoulder in fear because of who they are. Incidents like the one described in the federal indictment prove that we must remain vigilant to ensure that the rights of every single American resident are protected at all times.”

“The Civil Rights Division will continue to protect the right of every person who lives in this country to do so free of racially-based violence and intimidation,” said Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.  “The Justice Department will not tolerate those individuals or gangs who would prevent a family from living in a particular neighborhood simply because of their race or the color of their skin.”

The indictment specifically alleges that on Dec. 31, 2012, Aguilar, Marquez and a co-conspirator confronted an African-American juvenile, who was walking on a street in Compton, and threatened him by referring to themselves as “NKs.” The 17-year-old victim ran to his girlfriend’s house, where three other African-American juveniles were located. Aguilar and Marquez followed the 17-year-old victim to the home, yelled racial slurs at the four juveniles at the residence, and demanded that the African-Americans get out of the neighborhood.   Aguilar and Marquez then allegedly assaulted the 17-year-old victim with a metal pipe and threatened another juvenile with a gun.

After the juveniles managed to escape and run into the house, the indictment alleges that Aguilar and Marquez left the scene and informed other gang members that the African-American juveniles lived in their “territory.” Shortly thereafter, Aguilar and approximately 15 other gang members went to the victims’ home and threatened them by yelling racial slurs and warning the juveniles that they did not belong in the neighborhood. During this time, a member of the gang smashed one of the windows of the house.

“The FBI is committed to the protection of civil liberties,” said Bill Lewis, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office. “No one should tolerate violence based on the color of their skin or live in fear based on the hatred of others.”

“Hate crimes seriously threaten our society’s democratic principles and affect the entire community,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca. “We had one hate crime in Compton for 2012, but one is too many. Tolerance is the key element of democracy.”

An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Aguilar and Marquez had been in state custody on unrelated charges. They were transferred to federal custody early this morning and are expected to be arraigned on the indictment this afternoon in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

If convicted, Aguilar and Marquez each would face a statutory maximum penalty of 10 years in prison for each of the five civil rights charges alleged in the indictment.

The case against Aguilar and Marquez is the result of an ongoing investigation being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Reema El-Amamy of the Violent and Organized Crime Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Trial Attorney Saeed Mody of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.

    At least they’re brave enough to do something like this. Mestizos know it’s a race war, do whites?

    • liberalsuck

      More whites have caught onto the fact that there are a lot of blacks on white violent crimes and that make blacks in power hate whites. More whites are pissed off at illegal immigration. However, I don’t think most whites know about the black-brown race wars.

    • HamletsGhost

      They’re not braver than whites. It’s just that they got a free pass that whites never get. When whites try to organize themselves for mutual assistance or defense, the feds jump on them like a cat on a mouse.

      The way to look at is this: Black criminality is so obvious that even Mestizos can see it.

      • liberalsuck

        Right, but mestizos–like blacks–don’t fear job loss or imprisonment. To whites, that’s shameful to be a felon or a criminal or be a deadbeat parent.

        • It is not only shameful but probably for most of us white men, a death sentence. For reference, follow Gordon J Liddy’s time in the blackest, most violent prison in the Federal system. They put him there to die. And what will they do to the first batch of us that rise up?

          • Triarius

            Don’t be taken alive.

    • dr mike savage

      they are drug dealers like blacks its over drug turf. thats the only reason otherwise they unite against us.

  • josh

    I am strangely sympathetic to the NK’s! Do they take white guys?

    • The__Bobster

      Do you enjoy beatdown initiations?

      • josh

        Thats how I got on Amren.

    • aj

      They are called NKs instead of WKs only because no Ws live there anymore.

    • ZB

      Don’t get too comfortable, Josh; they’re not crazy about you, either.
      Your train will be coming around soon enough….It’s never late!

  • HadEnough

    “Youths” getting a taste of their own medicine, huh? Funny how they get a racial tag when they’re the victims (“African-American”), but not when they’re the perps. Must just be an oversight, right?

      “Two California Men Indicted in Federal Hate Crime Case Stemming from New Year’s Eve Attack on Teens”

    • TheTRUTH

      Once this really starts spreading across the country, and it will (and actually already has), I wonder how long the MSM will try and hold out on revealing the plain and simple
      universal truth: Nobody (except White libs) like blacks.

      Anyway, I think Mexicans need to work extra hard on these jobs. Blacks still
      hold most of the jobs of killing blacks. I guess that’s one job blacks
      do not want to relinquish to Mexicans.

  • liberalsuck

    I notice the title of the article didn’t mention these two men were Hispanic and not White. Here we go again. The anti-white media is once again trying to paint racially motivated crimes as only being committed by whites.

    • The__Bobster

      At least in the case of the stubbies, all you have to do is read the names.

      Of course, the DOJ will classify them as White.

    • Jss

      The perpetrators were white Hispanics like George Zimmerman. Zimmerman most likely was the founder of the 155 street gang which was in reality a racist neighborhood watch program.

      Only whites are racist.

      • Garrett Brown

        Our site is suddenly being flooded with brainwashed anti whites lately.

        • NYB

          Too much sarcasm on Amren too. Frequently, comments consist of people just jabbering away back and forth. I preferred the days when Amren comments were edited and moderated more discriminately. It saved me the trouble of sorting the wheat from the chaff.

          • Jss

            Yeah I feel you. A guy who doesn’t like jabbering is jabbering about to much sarcasm to a guy who doesn’t understand sarcasm. Must be to much irony on Amren as well.

          • Nathanwartooth

            Too! Sorry, couldn’t help myself 🙂

          • IstvanIN

          • dr mike savage

            agreed way too much sarcasm every comment it gets old plus a lot of these stories are not a joke or funny

        • Thor Bonham

          I think he was being facetious … Course, I could be wrong looking at the follow up comments…

      • MarcusTrajanus

        Zimmerman had the bad luck of having a German (Jewish?) last name, so the MSM initially assumed he was White. By the time it became known he was Peruvian they tried to pretend he was a White Hispanic ( whom they suddenly discovered actually exist, I’ve seen lily-white individuals called “people of color” just because the have a Spanish surname) despite the fact he looks like the typical Peruvian cholo and has an Afro-Peruvian grandma (which makes him black by the one drop rule American blacks usually favour).

        These guys have Spanish names, so the MSM will once again forget there’s such a thing as a White Hispanic and sweep the story under the rug because it doesn’t fit the narrative of evil Whitey oppressing all the “people of colour”.

        • Who Me?

          “I’ve seen lily-white individuals called “people of color” just because the have a Spanish surname)…”

          Unless they are the perpetrators of a crime. Look at the State of Washington Ten Most Wanted list. You will see things like, “Trujillo–white, Lopez–white, Alvarez–white” and on and on, all down the list.

      • C_C_Conrad

        In your opinion we are racist. You only say that because we are white. Anti-racist is just a code word for anti-white.

      How many White people are members of the Compton 155 street gang? But yes I agree it would behoove the media to mention that the two were Mexican/hispanic

  • bigone4u

    There is a natural instinct to protect one’s turf. How can that instinct be said to be based on hate, which is what federal law presumes. Protecting one’s turf is natural, normal, and good.
    *
    Hate crime laws, which attach an extra penalty to a crime if the jury reads the mind of the defendant and decides there is hate in his heart, are garbage, motivated by a desire to put white nationalists in prison if they spit on the sidewalk in a black neighborhood. Now, Hispanics will get a taste of the punishment aimed originally at whites (and heterosexuals).
    *
    Whites parked their instinct to protect their turf back in the days of “white flight,” when blacks began integrating white neighborhoods. Whites convinced themselves that they could have a better life in the suburbs, where the grass was greener and the air fresher, so they moved en masse to the outskirts of town. Blacks later tagged along. Now there is no place to run, especially with gas prices sky high and jobs scarce.
    *
    Will the instinct to protect one’s turf return to the white mind? Will Hispanics set the example of how to deal with black encroachment on one’s turf? Somethings got to give or whites will live their lives in torment from black pathologies for the rest of eternity. I believe that at some point, some whites will risk all and make a stand. If you believe I am deluded, please let me dream my foolish dreams, at least for a while.

    • dr mike savage

      its over DRUG turf whites hardly deal drugs in compton you must not have much world experience

    • libealsuck

      No, I think you’re right. Whites will be backed into a corner and something will make them snap even with everything riding against them. Look at our history. We overcome obstacles when tremendous odds are stacked against us. We’ve created the best civilizations and constitutions and systems of law out of nothing. We’ve created antibiotics and Western medicine and technology that most people of all races rely upon. We have created and destroyed the most powerful armies in the world.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    The same tough black thugs are now victims apparently. Funny how they can have their cake and eat it too. They can be both the criminal and the victim simultaneously.

    • “Hate” is a Jewish construct. It is illegitimate in the eyes of all freedom loving people. You can thank those very aggressive, domineering bastards from the Jewish ADL for creating this un-American, un-Constitional THOUGHT CRIME and lobbying it into law that idiot Bush I signed into law in 1991.

  • Luca

    Now if this gang had conducted this attack on whites it would not be referred to as a hate crime, the media would report that some youths were involved in some “Saturday Night Antics”.

    • Daisy

      The whites would be put in jail or interned somewhere just for reporting it.

  • Bernie

    Too bad these guys never paid a visit to Chris Dorner.

    • “The FBI is committed to the protection of civil liberties”
      Really? Then why punish people with stiffer sentences with these un-Constitutional, un-American JEWISH-created “hate” crime laws? These laws are an outrage and abomination and go against the concepts of what this country is supposed to be all about. ADL you SUCK!!

        • Luca

          It all turned bad in ’65. LBJ, the War on Poverty, the Immigration Act and Vietnam did more to destroy this country than anything prior with the exception of the Civil War. Each one of these things were senseless and only served political ambitions. I believe the high point in American history was 1960 – 64. We were the best at everything then but took a wrong turn in ’65.

  • libertarian 1234

    I’m willing to bet these Hispanics or their relatives or friends were victims of black racist violence, but had no recourse with the law since the authorities nearly always deny such a thing as black racist actions, and these Hispanic actions were a response to black violence that likely occurred many times.

    Just look at the hundreds of black on white mob attacks that have occurred around the country. Most of them are either ignored by the press and police or they deny the incidents are racial. Colin Flaherty, WND, is the only one who has dared even report on them besides this web site.

    “The FBI is committed to the protection of civil liberties,” said Bill Lewis, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office. “No one should tolerate violence based on the color of their skin or live in fear based on the hatred of others.”

    That’s just another high-sounding lie from these miscreants. They never acted on blatant Black Panther threats of murder on Zimmerman or “crackers and pink people” nor their threats to kill “blond-haired, blued eyed babies.” Nor have they investigated even one single black on white beating, assault, torture or torture murder in obvious hate crime attacks.

    They do as they do, because they’re gutlessly afraid the blacks will start rioting if they don’t treat them with deference.

    This teaches groups they won’t be taken seriously until they’re held in fear of tearing up their neighborhoods and burning them down.

    • Diamond_Lil

      “I’m willing to bet these Hispanics or their relatives or friends were victims of black racist violence…”

      I’ve been working around brown thuglets for over a decade. They don’t need a reason to hate blacks. They are unabashedly, very vocally racist against them. Yet they incur no consequences as a result, unlike white kids.

  • KittyAmerica

    Aguilar, Marquez, Reema El-Amany, and Saeed Mody all part of this story.
    It sounds so hopeless. I wish I had lived 200 years ago.

  • Unperson

    Efren Marquez Jr., who is also known as “Stretch”

    “Stretch”, huh? Wow, to get a nickname like that, Senor Marquez must be at least 5’9″! Who knows — maybe even a full 5’10”!

    Which is tall enough to get you a prominent position on Mexico’s Olympic basketball team.

  • Joseph

    “…we must remain vigilant to ensure that the rights of every single American resident are protected at all times.”

    Note that it is “resident” now.

    • Greg Thomas

      Good catch. Could that be in reference to the 30 million illegal invading mexicans squatting on US soil I wonder.

  • Greg Thomas

    La Raza is at it again I see, engaged in ethnic cleansing against blacks. But we do not hear a peep from so called “black leaders” because they are terrified it will cast a negative light on diversity.

  • George

    A couple different authorities were quoted as saying that nobody should live in fear of violence based on the colour of their skin.

    Hmmm…one of ’em is a member of the FBI’s Civil Rights division. Has he even looked at the rates of interracial crime? What’s his division doing about it, exactly?

  • Jefferson

    The liberal mainstream media must be furious that they can not blame this “hate crime” on White people because there are no White people left in Compton.

    White people stick out like a sore thumb in Compton, the same way a Black or Mestizo person would stick out like a sore thumb in Estonia for example.

    • Liberalsuck

      I went to LA a few years ago, but stayed in West Hollywood and only ventured into Malibu, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. Our concierge told me, “Stay out of Compton and Inglewood and stay out of East LA.”

  • Michael_C_Scott

    This certainly isn’t fair to blacks, coming from a pack of uninvited criminal alien invaders, but blacks have deliberately made themselves unwelcome anywhere they’ve been. I dislike this mainly because the cholos will get around to us the day after they run out of blacks.

    • Texan1st

      Cholos don’t concern me as much. I think White people could handle them because we haven’t been beaten down by political correctness towards browns to the extent that we’ve been beaten down with the slavery and Jim Crow eras.

      • anonymous

        Even the whites who kiss up to blacks don’t have the same guilt for illegals that they hold for blacks. They’ll say, “The blacks who fought for their civil rights were already Americans being denied basic rights. You illegals aren’t citizens. You are wanting special rights over Americans.” The browns are trying to intimidate whites the way blacks have, but they fail to realize most whites aren’t falling for it and they fail to realize lots of blacks are mad that the browns are replacing them as the preferred group.

      Idiots parrot this Marxist BS. Democracies were around long before multicultural nations that required the powers-that-be make tolerance the golden rule.

    • “Hate” is not a crime. Hate crime laws are criminal. They’re totally un-American! They ought to be stricken from the law books. They are repressive, they are unjust, they are unfair. They are Dark Age-type laws. You can thank the Jewish ADL gang for creating and lobbying into law these Soviet-style thought crime laws. What an outrage…

    The FBI is committed to the protection of civil liberties, said Bill Lewis. Yes, protection of everybody’s civil liberties but WHITES. Can anybody recall ANY minority charged with a hate crime for killing a white, even if while shouting racial curses? I can’t.

  • Hmm, the LA FBI official’s comment: ““No one should […] live in fear based on the hatred of others” seems to be another way the government is trying to shut down freedom of speech. E.g., if someone writes that illegal aliens should be deported (a statement normally considered hate by the left-wing), then you’ll have illegals living in fear, so the FBI can then go after the person making such a statement.
