DEATH PENALTY for "GANG" members? WTF???

This is one of the most horrible piece of shit proposals sitting in Congress right now. The Gang Deterrence and Community Protection Act of 2005 (H.R. 1279) wants to impose the death penalty for "gang" crimes. What do they call a "gang"? Here it goes:

`(1) CRIMINAL STREET GANG- The term `criminal street gang' means a formal or informal group or association of 3 or more individuals, who commit 2 or more gang crimes... (look up 1279 at and see for yourself)

What is a gang crime, you ask? Anything from fighting to possessing stolen goods counts as a "gang crime" in this new proposal.

So... if you and 2 of your hommies (strike one) are ever get caught fighting (strike two) and one of you had something stolen (strike 3) then they'll call you guys a "street gang" and sentence you to DEATH! Still don't believe it? Look it up!

Want to stop this? Well, luckily the ACLU are already on the case and they got an online form you can use to email your local Representative to bitch em out over this bill. Get involved, make noise, call a congress person, because for the Hip Hop generation it could mean our lives!

So why not stop fighting and stop stealing shit and YOU wont have to worry about this. I am a lawabiding, PRODUCTIVE, tax paying citizen who is tired of the ultra loud shit music you listen to at all hours. I am tired of the tagging in MY NEIGHBORHOOD, and the fact I HAVE TO PAY for a security system to keep you and your HOMIES from stealing my shit. I agree with you about the death penalty being too much. Hom about life in prison without any chance of parole. You and your homies invade OUR civil rights and hide like women behind the ACLU! Please... give me a break. MAN UP! Pay your bills and take care of YOUR children. Hold a steady job and quit eyeing up MY SHIT like it belongs to you! I bet you wanna shoot me now because I expressed MY RIGHTS.
