An internal audit of California’s gang database revealed some startling trends. Infants are joining gangs at an alarming rate. According to the database CalGang, California has no less than 42 infants enlisted in dangerous criminal gangs. 28 of them apparently admitted their gang membership to officers. This would be funny, if it wasn’t exactly what the database showed.
Officers in California marked infants as gang members and lied about how the information was obtained. This database is widely used by officers in California and being marked as a gang member would make life especially dangerous for the child during any police interaction.
