22 Las Vegas Residents Arrested during Gang Crackdown

22 Las Vegas Residents Arrested during Gang Crackdown

Earlier this month, 22 Las Vegas residents were arrested (along with 1,000 other alleged gang members) during a nation-wide crackdown. The crackdown was titled “Project Wildfire” and led by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigation. It ran from February 23rd until March 31st of this year. ICE Director Sarah R. Saldana is reported saying, “Criminal gangs inflict violence and fear upon our communities and without the attention of law enforcement, these groups can spread like a cancer… That’s why ICE works with law enforcement partners around the country to stamp out gang activity wherever it takes place.” Special agents teamed together with hundreds of local law enforcement partners to carry out “Project Wildfire.” In addition to the arrests, over 80 firearms were seized. Out of the nearly 1,000 gang members or associates arrested for offenses, over 900 of them were charged with Criminal Offenses. Are you facing freedom-threatening Criminal Defense Charges?

Las Vegas Law Enforcement is being accused of being “money hungry” when it comes to its approach to misdemeanor warrants.

Las Vegas Law Enforcement is being accused of being “money hungry” when it comes to its approach to misdemeanor warrants.

Critics claim that the collect-at-all-costs mentality places a high emphasis on traffic ticket revenue and is most likely to hurt minority defendants who fail to pay speeding tickets, while leaving more serious offenders roaming the streets. Former Las Vegas Marshal Richard Kilgore said the court rewards officers who bring in the most money and offers additional training and promotions to marshals who “negotiate court-ordered bail amounts with scofflaws in the field.” Those who do not, he said, find themselves out of luck. “Officers like myself would get denied training, get stuck in court more,” Kil­gore added. “That’s where I thought (marshals) were supposed to be. I’ve always thought that we’re not there to generate revenue, we’re there to enforce court orders and uphold the decorum of the court.” Another critic, Court Administrator Dana Hlavac, added, “I’m not going to force people to pay money they can’t pay just so we can keep running our business,” he added. Records obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal via Nevada’s public records law display that the Las Vegas Municipal Court collected nearly $130 million — 89 percent of its total revenue — from traffic violations over the past five years. The majority of that was taken in by speeding tickets or other moving violations.   Do you have a Las Vegas Traffic Ticket you would like reduced to no points, no school, no traffic school?  Call today for a Free Consultation at (702)...

This past Monday, a Las Vegas woman and her young granddaughter were tragically killed in a hit-and-run incident while they waited at a bus stop.
