One of the biggest issues President Trump raised during his time in office was the scourge of gang violence in the United States. As Trump correctly said, “animals” like MS-13 and other gangs were ravaging this country.
Sadly, there are plenty of homegrown gangs as well; these are groups of mostly young men slaughtering each other on a regular basis for drugs, clout and – sometimes – just for kicks.
One of those lost to the tragedy of gang violence has now exposed the horrible cycle of illegal weapons and thuggery that’s dragging this country down into the gutter. It needs to stop. It needs to stop now.
Christina Lopez is a 42-year-old woman from Fresno, California. Her son Isiah Murrieta-Golding was tragically gunned down at only 16-years-old in 2017 by police officers while he tried to run from them.
This horrible incident led to a court case. Lopez got a payout of $4.9 million this past April for the horrific action of authorities in gunning down her son as he tried to get away from arrest.
It seemed like she had gotten back some money for what no mother should ever have to go through. Even though it obviously did nothing to bring her son back, it at least relieved financial pressure from her.
However, now Lopez herself has been arrested for smuggling illegal guns. Lopez was allegedly making these buys for her other son and his gang, who are accused of a murder that happened several months ago in Fresno County.
She NEEDS to be put away for at least 20+ years on accessory to muder and contributing to added STUPIDITY of minors. Bet she's out on a no-cash bond in a day at most. Thank you DUMB ARSE JUDGES.

Lessons Not Learned
Despite the gang involvement and awful death of Isiah, it seemed Lopez learned nothing. She allegedly started buying guns for her other boy to give out to his gang, a gang which went on to murder someone in July.
His mom bought these weapons with the knowledge that her other even younger son would be giving his gang (the “Calwa” gang) these dangerous firearms. Part of the money to buy these guns obviously came out of the $4.9 million payout from the death of her other son, which she also used to buy a mansion.
If this woman is guilty, it’s important to be brutally honest about it. Some people are just lowlives and should never be allowed to become mothers in the first place. They’re just not fit to reproduce or have the capability to get pregnant. Sorry, not sorry.
Christina Lopez received at $4.9 million judgement after her 16-year-old son was fatally shot by Fresno police. Now she has been arrested, accused of using part of the settlement money to buy guns that her 14-year-old son distributed to gang members. https://t.co/EAp8G1NHYe

What is Lopez Charged With?
Lopez has been hit with 22 counts of gun trafficking to give to an underage person for use in gang activities. She’s also charged with related offenses. Her lawyer says she didn’t do it and says there’s no proof. Let’s wait and see what the evidence turns up. At this point, it looks pretty convincing.
