You’ve got to be friggin’ kidding me. I mean, I know that scaring people is part of the whole tough-on-crime business, but really?
Rick Horowitz and I have been exchanging messages about some website design issues, and that got me to poking around Rick’s new law practice website, which lead me to another of Rick’s websites: GangDefense.com, which eventually led me to his practice areas page. That’s where Rick mentions in passing that California has an anti-gang law called the STEP Act, in which the “STEP” stands for…wait for it…Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention.
That’s right, they’re not just gangs, they’re Street Terrorists!
