At least 20 people tied to the violent MS-13 street gang have been indicted on charges related to a food truck extortion racket. Officials say the gang targeted trucks serving blue collar workers demanding payments from $30 to $100 per week to operate trucks parked in Hollywood.
Morning Answer co-host Ben Shapiro remarked, “it makes me ask the question as to how much the state is charging then per week to operate trucks parked in Hollywood because MS-13 and the state sort of operate in similar ways. You don’t get to operate that truck unless you pay somebody off!”
“The only difference,” chimed in co-host Brian Whitman, “is one has the power to arrest the other.”
