I really wish this was an article from The Onion…. but no, it’s not.

On Saturday, Joseph Manzanares stormed into the Hollywood Video store where his girlfriend worked, threatened to kill her and knocked over several video displays and even a computer, Commerce City police Sgt. Joe Sandoval said.

His girlfriend told police that they had been arguing about the upbringing of their son and which gang he should belong to. The teen mother, who is black, is a member of the Crips. Manzanares is Hispanic and belongs to the Westside Ballers gang, the woman said.

That’s so sad I can’t even think of anything funny to say.

    I don’t see what there is to argue about. Obviously roll with the Ballers.

  2. Andy says:

    There has to be a Blacktino gang out there for disenfranchised young thugs of mixed ethnicity.

  3. Ben says:

    No; the gangs never agree to take the required sensitivity courses.
