Cockfighting Crimes Increasing in San Bernardino County, Video Warns

James Barragan, Los Angeles Times, September 5, 2014

Weeks after a Fontana man was arrested for allegedly keeping more than 500 roosters for cockfighting, San Bernardino County officials released a video to combat the crime, calling it an “increasing problem.”

The four-minute video follows the raid of a Fontana home and shows images of roosters tied to tethers in small, enclosed pens that fill the backyard of a residential home, as well as gaffs and mitts used for training in cockfighting. It also shows what appears to be a dead chicken.

Officials with the district attorney’s office say they have seen an increase in cockfighting crimes over the last several years.

In April 2012, sheriff’s deputies raided a cockfighting event in Hesperia and found 63 live roosters, 14 dead ones and more than $20,000 in cash. Sixty-eight arrests were made that day.

Later that year, Ontario police and the Inland Valley Humane Society found 1,000 gamecocks at a suspected cockfighting ring in the city.

    Kind of sums up the difference between whites and Hispanics. Whites are busy trying to make the world a better place. Hispanics are busy forcing birds to fight each other.

    • The good news is that the US doesn’t have a space program anymore, so we can now devote our attention to pursuits like watching animals tear each other to pieces.

    Do you see the word brown in this article?

    Nah. Me neither…

    • B.E.L.

      It’s a complete mystery as to why all of a sudden there are so many cock fights.

      • Michael Whalen

        That’s what happens when you let hordes of Norwegians, Swedes, Finns, Danes, English, Irish and Germans into your country, and don’t force them to assimilate.

        When I saw the title I thought it was going on in San Fran

  • IstvanIN

    Those Fontanans are a strange bunch.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      I used to live near there in the 60’s. Don’t recall any of my neighbors doing that. Of course, they weren’t mexicans.

  • james AZ

    BEANers FAMILY are high values than WHITES !!!!!! huh oh it must be right huh ….

    • IstvanIN

      Is that you, President Bush?

  • Adolf Verloc

    There is no question in my mind that enjoying watching animals hurt or kill each other is a sure sign of being an evolutionary throwback.

    • adplatt126

      What about actually being the animal running around hurting, maiming and killing other animals for sport? What does that make you?

      • WhiteVeinKratom

        What would that make you? A Black Rabbit.

    • 1stworlder

      They where doing human sacrifice when the Spaniards found them

  • revilo evola

    In South Florida they’ve found cow tongues with pins stuck in them, on railroad tracks. It’s in Texas too– supposed to be some sort of Santeria ritual. Pigeons are being raised, bought and sold for sacrifice, in these areas. Nothing like having voodoo rites for your vibrancy, and cultural enrichment. So really? What’s a little rooster fighting in the multicultural scheme of things?

  • Michael Robert Ryan

    To be completely fair, cockfighting was a sport enjoyed by many of our founding fathers. It was legal here in Arizona as late as the late 90s–we were one of the last states to ban it. Back when it was legal here, it was indulged in at least as much by white good ol’ boys as by Mexicans. IMO, it should never have been banned.

    • IstvanIN

      Maybe we should have bull fights and bear baiting as well.

      • authorizedversion .

        It’s not a matter of allowing even more animal fighting sports. It’s the fact that in Arizona it was just another damn law passed and added to the books.

        • Michael Robert Ryan

          Yes, as if our anarcho-tyrannical overlords didn’t have enough reasons already to send traditional, working-class whites to prison.

          • DiversityIsDeath

            What do you mean? It’s another law to reign in the savage muds who have infested our country. The more muds in a “multiculti” country the less freedom Whites will have.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      It should be banned. Whites aspire to something more than torture killing called cock-fighting. Even a majority of Mexicans in Mexico want bullfighting banned these days. It’s disgusting. And those who find it entertaining are mental defectives.

      • Michael Robert Ryan

        Are you a vegetarian?

        • ShermanTMcCoy

          I’m not. And I am a hunter. And my goal is one-shot, one kill. I oppose any means of killing animals that requires unnecessary pain.

          • Michael Robert Ryan

            Do you eat factory-farmed chicken?

          • I eat factory-farmed chicken. I am also a racist.

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            I don’t think so, Mike. Here in the EU, the farming methods are reportedly less brutal. However, anything is possible, I guess. For example, it could be possible that I have consumed “Halal” slaughtered poultry in a restaurant here in Germany, as we certainly dare not condemn the Muzzies for their “traditions” no matter how inhumane.

          • Michael Robert Ryan

            OK, fair enough. I still disagree with your opinion on cockfighting, but at least you’re not a hypocrite.

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            To be completely honest, though, I’ve never made a conscious choice not to eat factory-farmed chicken, I just don’t think we have it.

            BTW, I also am a racist.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Yes, well Whites used to burn witches too. As fed up, racially aware White people here, we understand that the White race is the most enlightened and evolved race on the planet, always improving and bettering ourselves. Cockfighting is for muds.

      • Michael Robert Ryan

        > Cockfighting is for muds.

        Sure coulda fooled me. I went to a few cockfights years ago when it was still legal here and there were plenty of white rednecks there.

        • DiversityIsDeath

          Alright then, cockfighting is for muds and ignorant white trash. The point is decent, righteous, racially aware White people do not participate in or enable such cruel sport.

  • CPAinLA

    Former Mexican president Vicente Fox once said, “Where you have Mexicans, you have Mexico.” Yes, we know. Unfortunately once that population reaches critical mass, Southern California will not be viable or sustainable. There will be massive White flight and they will follow-and do the same thing all over. First post here, almost feels therapeutic.

    • Mary

      Yes, from America’s golden beacon a few decades ago, to today’s cautionary tale.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        back in the 1950s, Los Angeles was your typical, white-bread middle America out on the west coast. The only Spanish media people could hear was an a.m. station out of Tijuana, Mexico, but only on a cool, clear night.
        Now, cockfighting, and the Mexican taste for bloodsport spreading like a metastasizing cancer. We’ve come a long way since the good ‘ol 50s

  • BillMillerTime

    It’s about time that the authorities started cracking down on this epidemic of chicken-on-chicken violence.

  • [Guest]

    I’ve shut up more than one “animal-rights” advocate by mentioning that the increase in cockfighting and other acts of cruelty to animals is directly related to the nation’s demographic transformation. I’ve also found that when the subject of obesity comes up you can get an interesting reaction by mentioning that blacks and browns are leaders in the overweight category.

    The do-gooders might be concerned about things such as excess body fat and the torturing of animals, but they’re more worried that someone might think they’re racists.

    • BillMillerTime

      Yup, and they’d rather be called “child molesters” than “racists.”

  • JSS

    At least for the time being our browns are focusing on torturing roosters more then gang raping our 11 year old girls. But I’m sure PETA will be on this just as soon as one of our thousands of feminazi organization raises a word about Rotherham.

  • rightrightright

    Dog fighting which is illegal has become prevalent in England, thanks to the Moslem imports here. This cruelty is profitable and bloodthirsty so one can understand the charm of it all to islamics. Pets are stolen from people’s gardens and used as bait.

  • none of your business

    In the hispanic areas of Chicago they stick dead chickens on stop signs and street light posts.

  • none of your business

    Now, now folks, it wasn’t so long ago we were enjoying animal fights. Mark Twain wrote often about boys and loafers enjoying dog fights. My brother-in laws family home in England still has the bear baiting pit although it has not been used for about 200 years.

    Those half are most likely women. Women are like blacks or Hispanics. It is white men who have given the world technology, human rights, literature, science, etc. Women, when liberated, become like kids.

    I love how, in US news, Julio Miguel Jose Sanchez Rodriguez Gonzalez becomes a “local man”.

  • model1911

    Mormons must be moving into the area.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Yeah, or Swedes.


    Having grown up in the City of San Bernardino, which is the county seat, I have to go around with a bag over my head. This problem fits San Bernardino’s image, which is not so much racial as it is socio-economic. It was settled by Okies during the Great Depression, consequently it is a blue collar town. If you wanted to open a night club and have it succeed, you would call it something like “The Branding Iron”; it would have sawdust all over the floor, and a hee-haw band. The last thing you would do is try to bring culture to the town, all prior attempts having failed. There are really only two positive things you say about SB: it is where the first MacDonalds opened up, and the city is close to everything else: i.e., the mountains, the desert, and the beach.

  • SoulInvictus

    What is there to say, they’re enthusiastic about cocks in CA.

    (let’s see if that one makes it through censorship;)

    Did anyone else think at first glance that this was some weird story emanating from San Fran initially?

  • [Guest]

    Currently in Mexico (and therefore coming to Mexifornia.): cockfighting inside a Wal-Mart store.


    “Wal-Mart Mexico Unit Probed on Complaints of Cockfight”

    Wal-Mart de Mexico SAB, the country’s biggest retailer, is being probed by local officials after shoppers complained that a store hosted a cockfight to promote a soda company.

    … The incident occurred Sept. 15 as part of Mexico’s Independence Day celebrations, Hernandez said.
