Escondido Residents Use Video To Document Police Efforts

With all my respect, but you all miss the point. Latinos in Escondido are all being treated like criminals. These checkpoints were all in Latino neighborhoods until ACLU got involved. Nobody deserves to be treated like a second class citizen. Latinos in Escondido should have the same rights and respect as all the white citizens. These checkpoints target Latinos and the chief of police can keep on lying to the citizens of Escondido. All citizen should have the right to choose if they want to go through a checkpoint. These checkpoints actually put officers in danger, when they don't have proper lighting, proper signs before the actual checkpoint. Those traffic cones are not going to stop a real criminal if they have a pound of cocaine and guns in the car. Think about it? Checkpoints are big business for the city. It's not about making our city safer, it's about the city council's agenda against the Latino community and about making big dollars. I think it's about time that all citizen speak out and defend the Latino community, it's the right thing to do.
