The people v. Broderick Boys

16:40 |

The people v. Broderick Boys is the second attempt by the District Attorney's Office to secure a permanent injunction against the alleged gang, which establishes a 3 1/2-mile "safety zone" in the West Sacramento neighborhoods of Broderick and Bryte.

The injunction prohibits "validated members" from organizing or even communicating with one another and enforces a 10 p.m. curfew, among other restrictions.

Validated members are also put into state and federal gang databases and identified as "domestic terrorists."

A person in West Sacramento can be validated as a gang member if the person meets two of 11 criteria established by the Department of Justice. This ranges from a suspect outright admission of gang affiliation to wearing gang clothing, displaying gang symbols or frequenting known gang areas.

Critics compare the 10 p.m. curfew to an internment camp and argue the injunction is biased against Latino families and encourages staff at elementary schools to target youth as potential gang members.

The protesters deny the existence of a Broderick Boys gang and say the DAs Office and West Sacramento police are using the injunction as leverage for grants that reward "gang deterrence."
