More asinine school dress code policies. I remember a story here about how students couldn't wear rosaries because they were considered gang symbols. All gangs wear pants. Should pants be banned too?

Gangs breathe air.

Therefore, breathing in school is not allowed.

They'd better get rid of all math problems involving 6x3 or 9x2, just to be on the safe side.

Hmm, file not found.

Understand the school's stance on this. I remember rolling with the Los Numeros Primos.

FTFA: But how can a Bronco fan express his devotion if the jersey remains in a drawer?

From Wiki:

18th Street gang members often identify themselves with the number 18 on their clothing and sporting clothing from sports teams such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers and Oakland Raiders. 18th Street will use the symbols XV3, XVIII, 666, 99,(9+9=18), and 3-dots in their graffiti and tattoos. 18th Street colors are black, blue. Blue is to represent Sureños (despite being a non-Sureños affiliate), the gangs from the oldest barrios in Southern California, and black is to represent the original color for the gang. The 18th Street gang is occasionally referred to as the "Children's Army" because of its recruitment of elementary and middle-school aged youth.[15] In El Salvador it is common for members of the gang, to be tattooed on the face with a large "18". In many cases the tattoo covers the entire face.[16]

I think I just solved your problem Mr. Article

While they hassle this kid, actual gangs operate at that school right under their noses.

At tthe all girl college... yes. I agree with that statement. No mas pantelones!

See this is why this is so stupid: Gangs use subtle signals to signify to other gang members and rivals who they are, and they change so quickly that by the time sort donut-eating "gang enforcement unit" guy actually compiles them into a list and gives them to a credulous school board they are as out of date as wing-tips
 
2012-09-05 04:12:00 PM  
18 is on the no-no list, but 88 isn't?!?

Hey, when I see Manning, I think gang-banger.

Rolling in his Buick, watching his Directv and sucking down a Gatorade while wearing his Reeboks.

Dude is just pushing his product, man.

It's good to see they're also doing something about the terrible scourge of the Baskin & Robbins Gang.

Why the emphasis on stopping gangs? The police don't like the competition

FTFA: The policy has been around for more than three years and applies to the numbers 13, 14,18, 31, 41 and 81.

Also, thanks to Gangland, I am unable to process any discussion of gangs without some overly serious narration, stock sound-effects, and overlaid re-enactments of dudes wearing bandannas exchanging dollar bills in front of a chain-link fence.

Ow! That was my feelings!: Link


Holy crap, who gave that little kid a gun?
 
2012-09-05 04:49:57 PM  
Perhaps the ACLU should remind this school that gangs have first amendment rights also.

Here in SoCal most gangbangers have given up sporting colors or other easily identifiable items (ie bandanas or even tattoos are more limited now). However, back when I went to school in the 90s the ban on certain sport teams clothing was for 2 reasons: one so gang members wouldn't wear them but also so kids that were not gang members wouldn't get jumped for the clothing item if they did wear it.

CSB: in 7th grade I wore my LA Kings jacket to my school in East LA (around 32nd street and the Avenues were the big gang in the area). One of the gangbangers took a liking to it and after PE class tried to jump me for it. I fought back and he ended up with a bloody nose and a cut on his head. We both ended up in the principal's office but neither of us talked about the fight and we both said we just tripped on the stairs. I got to keep my jacket but I never wore it to school again.

They'd have to ban all the pianos in music class as gang paraphernalia.

The 14th letter is N, for Norteno, the geographic area of Northern california gangs.

Yeah, when I was growing up in SoCal, you couldn't wear Raiders, Kings, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago White Sox or Chicago Bulls clothing. In 5th grade, the trend was to wear overalls with one strap undone. Some gang adopted that as a style of dress, so that was banned. So was wearing one pant leg rolled up. And bandanas of all sorts were a no-no, of course.

Every parent should put their kid in a manning jersey, just to call the districts bluff. Will they really send hundreds of kids home? Think of the disruption to parents and teachers. All because of the number 18.
 
2012-09-05 06:51:36 PM  
Is there really a white gang out there who dresses in football jerseys with the number 18 on them?

Keyboard and monitor, you owe me.

So our law enforcement figured out ways gang members identify themselves, and they want to stop them from showing it?

WTF? If it were acceptable for a gang member to wear a big neon arrow that said "I'm in a gang, and am dangerous" would you stop them from doing it?
