White Supremacist Gangs In Costa Mesa?
This morning the Daily Pilot will carry an excellent article by Joe Serna discussing the retirement of two Costa Mesa police officers - Bob Phillips and Clay Epperson. You can read Serna's piece HERE.

WHY BRING IT UP?
So, what's the big deal about two cops retiring, you ask? Well, both men are taking advantage of the recent retirement incentive program, but that's not why I'm writing this tonight.
WHAT WILL "THE MOUTH" SAY?
Nope, I writing this to speculate about what kind of a response it will generate over at the Mesa North repository of hate, the CM Press.
FLUSHING OUT WHITE SUPREMACIST GANGS
Epperson is quoted by Serna as saying that his greatest accomplishment during his 29 year tour with the CMPD was working with detectives while on the Special Enforcement Detail to "kick out white supremacist gangs." He went on to say, "Those are some really evil people that do severe harm to the communities they're in."
NO WHITE GANGS?
From time to time our racist laureate at the CM Press has vehemently denied that there is a white gang problem in our city, preferring, instead to berate the CMPD for his perception that they don't do enough about Latino gangs.
WHO DO YOU BELIEVE?
So, who's word will you take? Will you listen to an internationally notorious racist with a long career publishing anti-anything-but-white tripe and who has demonstrated a clear pattern of behavior designed to disenfranchise and dislocate the Latinos who make up approximately one-third of our population? Or, will you listen to a decorated police officer with almost three decades serving our city, trying to make it a safer place to live, work and play? Gee, I think Epperson's got my vote.
Let's see what the CM Press has to say...
THANKS, AND GOOD LUCK
Regardless, thanks to Phillips and Epperson to their years of dedicated service to our city. They both deserve a happy, safe retirement.
