Crips v. Westside Ballers Gang: It’s Hard Out There for a Toddler

By Debbie Schlussel
This has to be one of the greatest–if not the greatest–stories in illustrating the fast decline of America and how there is no nadir too low on which to traverse downward.
An (unmarried) couple got into a violent argument over how to raise their child. It’s not about whether the 4-year-old toddler should be raised Jewish or Catholic, or whether he should get a home or public school education. Nope. This is the case of an usual “mixed marriage” (well, they’re not married, but you get the point).
This fight is about whether the four-year-old should become a Crip or a Westside Baller (a Latino gang):

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — A couple arguing about which gang their 4-year-old toddler should join caused a public disturbance that resulted in the father’s arrest, Commerce City police said Thursday, reported KMGH-TV in Denver.


“Natural Selection”:

Westside Ballers Gang Member Joseph Manzanares Wants Toddler to Join

On Saturday, Joseph Manzanares stormed into a video rental store where his girlfriend worked, threatened to kill her and knocked over several video displays and even a computer, Commerce City police Sgt. Joe Sandoval said.
After he ran out of the store, police were called and the 19-year-old was arrested at his home.
His girlfriend told police that they had been arguing about the upbringing of their son and which gang he should belong to. The teen mother, who is black, told authorities she is a member of the Crips, police said. Manzanares is Hispanic and belongs to the Westside Ballers gang, the woman told police.
‘They have different ideas on how the baby should be raised. Basically, she said they cannot agree on which gang the baby would ‘claim,” Sandoval said.
Manzanares was charged with disorderly conduct, harassment, and domestic violence. He was transported to the Adams County Detention Facility.
On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to 12 months of probation and ordered to pay $835 in court costs, according to the Denver Post. The misdemeanor harassment charge was dropped.

I can just hear the argument. He’s shouting something in Spanish about her being a “putah,” and she’s shouting, “No, you di’in’t.”
I think we’ve found the next co-winners of the Darwin Awards. Oh, and make that tri-winners. After all, as reader Duane writes:

Note no involvement by CPS [Colorado Protective Services] for concerns on this child’s future.

Whatta country! Membership (in gangs) has its privileges.

Stories like this make me think that moving away from America might be necessary in the future. I am sick that we have reached this point of social disintegration. At this point, will anything make a difference?

Ah yes, the social benefits of multiculturalism, let us not worry about what schools our children will attend. Instead weíll worry about their gang affiliation.
I must be a failure as a father, my son never joined a gang, instead he graduated Suma Cum Laude from college, and is now in law school.

i was watching that gangbangger show on the History Channel last night to see if there was any Crips i knew on it, and the whole gang mentality was so assinine that i cannot help but agree with the Reich-wingers who want to bring religion into the schools!!!
Nothing like a little fear of eternal damnation to prevent you from killing people just to be a gangbanger…but IF Obama or McCain wanna take care of the Iran problem, just drop all the Crips & Bloods there…mission will really be ACCOMPLISHED in 48 hoiurs:)

Interesting this story also coinesides with the one about the black 8,9,10 year olds plotting to kill “throw pies” at their teacher. We are now being led to believe they are just innocent little darlings-even had one of them on Good Morning America. How utterly repugnant!
We as a self indulgent country have allowed this cancer to spread to the point that nothing is going to stop it. We were shocked when the first high school student killed his classmates, and wondered how a teenager could kill someone with absolute callous indifference to human life. I’m no longer shocked when the news reports that a 9 year old planned to kill their teacher, nor am I shocked when stupid teenage morons, “black” again can’t decide which gang their four year old should join. In five more years he will be plotting to blow up his school because his teacher will tell him to sit down and pay attention in class-the nerve of those teachers!
But according to the Black politico, its all whitey’s fault. And to that I have to agree, we should have never let this situation of Black racism and defiant disregard for humanity to spread to the extent it has here in this country.

God help us. We no longer can…
Used to be, back in the 50s, if you were obstinate and disobedient and disruptive, your teacher would/could/did bend you over a desk and administer the “board of education” to your sorry butt. Sadly, no more, huh? Worked wonders back then…

“But according to the Black politico, its all whitey’s fault. And to that I have to agree, we should have never let this situation of Black racism and defiant disregard for humanity to spread to the extent it has here in this country.”
We used to be able to avoid having any contact with such Black racism – it was called segregation.Not so bad in retrospect,was it,especially by today’s hideous standards?
I’ll bet they never had any gang problems in any of these Colorado towns when they were all White….

OldSchoolW on April 11, 2008 at 12:03 pm

They need to take this child away from his parents – immediately. And, no, I have no white guilt for people who have every opportunity in the world and they blow it.

Years ago there was a documentary/interview with the founderof the crips. He described the standard ‘crip’ wardrobe whcih, if not strictly adhered to, would result in a serious beatdown. What struck me was his mention of how a crip had to stand, particularly the position of one’s feet. When standing, the feet had to be at a specific angle to each other, otherwise…….another beatdown.
The angle.
Get the angle correct or else your become a bloody pulp.
Good grief.
Another gang mentioned the wearing of a specific shade of grey to signify gang membership. Anyone caught NOT wearing that particular shade of grey had the snot beaten out of them. Think about that for a moment.
No concern for proper education or any advancement as a human being.
It all boiled down to the right shade of grey.
That’s all.
We’ve got the right grey going on, so we’re good.
There’s absolutely nothing else we should concern outrselves with.
I’m speechless.

The saddest part is that this is NOT unusual. It’s just poorly reported…tends to make a mockery of all that multiculti bovine scatology the libs love so much.
I’m glad I live alone and in the country so I can defend myselves from these rejects.

Sharps Rifle on April 11, 2008 at 1:56 pm

AAAaand nobody cared to take the kid into child protective services after learning of the confession that both parents were proud gang members. Perhaps the po po were affiliated with one or both gangs. NIIIIIICE!

I think you have to understand that black and Hispanic gangs are a vital means to reinforce their racial identity as drug-dealing, murderous, ignorant low life gangsta scum. After M.L.K. and the courageous civil rights era no white American would have the guts to GIVE them this identity. They have to create it themselves.

poetcomic1 on April 11, 2008 at 3:06 pm

Point of Order: “Puta” is not spelled with an H…Okay, continue discussion about decline of Western civilization…

CapitalistPig on April 12, 2008 at 2:35 am

Yet another reason why martial law should be declared in the inner cities and all the gang bangers should be rounded up, with the girl gang bangers sterilized.

sanantonioins on April 12, 2008 at 2:57 am

Just more trash. Now is time to start criminalizing negligent parental behavior. The only way to stop more trash is to put bad parents in jail. Maybe thugs wont have babies if they went to jail for non-support. Wassup dawg!! Cantcha give me sum props dawg!! Liberals will say we didnt educate them enough and they went to a life of crime. Wow. How come Gangs arent such a problem in Mexico who are dirt poor? However their offsprings born in America and everything is given to them and they somehow have no desire to work anymore like their parents. Wow, how liberalism can take a work ethic from their parents and thier children figure out work is not necessary when you have “right to entitlements.” Previous immigrants had no “rights to entitlements” and guess what they passed it on to their children. Liberalism is killing the “American Dream” of opportunity. Now come to America and pick up a check.

Savages. That is all I can say.

JasonBourne81 on April 12, 2008 at 2:06 pm

I guess this guy is just doing jobs “no American will do.” LOL.

JasonBourne81 on April 12, 2008 at 2:09 pm

OK, take a group of people – any group, but in this case American blacks. Then, have an entire generation of *other* people (1960’s and 1970’s) commence telling them that nothing is their fault, and furthermore that they should not need conform to society standards of behavior and education.
Finally, for the perfect storm, introduce a welfare system that pulls the father out of the household yet encourages unfettered child bearing.
Voila! Permanent underclass.

Why do you conservatives hate America so much?

No Pasaran! on April 14, 2008 at 10:13 am

“Why do you conservatives hate America so much?”
Simple: because you Leftists/Marxists and all of their simlar political offshoots, have been TRULY hating it far more,than you could ever even accuse us of doing – the last 40-45 years alone prove that.

OldSchoolW on April 14, 2008 at 11:51 am

I think the answer is pretty simple, learn to speak their language and understand their culture…it’s called Smith & Wesson 44 Magnum..two to the chest and one to the head!
Hasta La Vista!
