Six men, reputed members of the Oakdale Mob based in a four-block area of Hunters Point, were added to the list

05:47 | , ,

The new additions to that list include: Gerardo Canon, 18; Eric Jones, 21; Keimareea Lake, 19; Kenyon McDowell, 20; Dimarea McGhee, 20; and Mario Woods, 19.All six men have engaged in extensive gang-related conduct that included both nuisance activity and criminal behavior, according to the city attorney's office.Jones was convicted in 2008 of felony assault with a deadly weapon for assaulting and threatening to kill a woman with a handgun on gang turf, and was sentenced to three years in prison, according to the city attorney's office.McDowell was convicted in 2008 or felony negligent discharge of a firearm and, according to police, repeatedly violated stay-away orders from the area under the terms of his probation.McGhee has been convicted of felonies including grand theft, possession of a concealed firearm, robbery and participation in a criminal street gang, and was sentenced to two years in state prison in October, the city attorney's office said.
San Francisco Superior Court judge has agreed to add six suspected members of a Bayview criminal street gang to one of the city's civil gang injunctions, according to city attorneys.Six men, reputed members of the Oakdale Mob based in a four-block area of Hunters Point, were added to the list Wednesday, according to the city attorney's office.City Attorney Dennis Herrera said the men "have engaged in an alarming pattern of gang violence and criminal conduct in a short span of time, and their addition to the existing injunction is clearly warranted."A total of 25 alleged Oakdale Mob gang members are now prohibited under the civil injunction from weapons or drug possession; loitering with intent to sell drugs; witness or victim intimidation; threats to recruit or retain gang members; defacing property with graffiti; and trespassing, all in the area of the injunction.Gang members are also prohibited from associating together in the injunction zone, except while attending school or church.A permanent injunction against the Oakdale Mob was issued by the city attorney's office in March 2007. Other injunctions have been issued against in the Western Addition District, and Nortenos in the Mission District.
Police say the injunctions are a helpful tool to allow authorities to discourage gang activity in San Francisco.Critics of the injunctions have argued the some of the laws, such as loitering with intent, are so vague as to be open to abuse by police.
Civil prosecutions of the gang injunction can result in monetary penalties and sentences of up to five days in jail; while those prosecuted as criminal misdemeanors by the district attorney's office can result in six-month jail sentences.
