Gang rally in south Orange County?

The O.C. Register is reporting that there will be a “candlelight vigil and rally” tonight against the recently announced injunctions “targeting 239 suspected gang members in San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente.”

Here are a few excerpts from the Register’s article:

SJC Against the Gang Injunctions leader Sergio Farias said the rally will take place at 5:30 p.m. at El Camino Real Park, on the corner of Camino Capistrano and La Zanja.

More than 100 people attended a previous protest in November the night before the preliminary injunctions were approved by an Orange County judge. Organizers expect a smaller turnout today than at the other protest, saying they had only a week to prepare.

I find it hard to believe that these gang members are going to change any minds with this protest. But if I was a defense lawyer I might show up and pass some cards out. These lads are bound to get in trouble again…
