The opponents of these gang injunctions believe that the injunctions strip members of their constitutional rights.
Increases stereotyping by the police department.
Families are being broken up, due to this law enforcement harassment.
For example a gang injunction was set to be imposed on the Echo Park area of Los Angeles, but activist and community members alike where determined to fight it. Because they believe it was a form of gentrifying a community as again the police targets solely minorities.
It marginalizes the male in the communities these safety zones are said to protect, by incarcerating them repeatedly. Instead of giving them the opportunity to try an reform.
The California Department of Corrections is already overflowing and has the highest jail/prison population with a 70% recidivism rate. Unfortunately, releasing other more violent criminals who have committed non gang related offenses.
Ironically making our communities more dangerous, especially the poverty stricken communities they were intended to help.
