What would happen if a member of the Bown Berets was arrested? Would the patch cover it?

Amazing...This is the second recent report in Watsonville of a driver intentionally trying to hit a pedestrian. Who does that? What's wrong with people? How funny is it the perp got his ass kicked and sent to jail?

Who are the Brown Berets and why does Freda only make comments about them?

The Brown Berets are a local racially based gang that has close ties to the city of Watsonville. If you follow local politics you will find their fingers in many of the activities that make the news. The BBs are also known for a very strong anti-white, anti-black and anti-Asian stance. Read their Facebook and websites. The call for people to harass the police, the distraction of the US military and the creation of a ' Mexicano ' state here in the Pajaro Valley. On their Internet pages they make it clear that all social problems are caused by whites. They call for the exclusion of whites from this area once their revolution takes place. There is a lot more but read it for yourself.

@David Guzman: it's also no surprise that certain City Council members are appointing friends who are affilated with the BBs to the various city Boards and Commissions. Don't believe it? Google the names and check out their Facebook pages. Some appointees don't even reside in the District they are representing either.
