Portland is also mentioned in the article...

Here's a little link on Mara Salvatrucha as well. I didn't know much about that gang at all:

The Seattle Times article struck me as a bit strange. It seems the Police acted to make the park safe because the regular dealers were displaced by the Honduran gang.

So-- the cops were ok with the regular bunch?

My impression was just that they noticed a pattern...but, yeah, that could probably have been worded better.
