Re "Roots of anger," Current, Jan. 7 Tanya K. Hernandez's piece is filled with sweeping generalizations and accusations. She is way off when she refers to the killings and assaults by Latino gang members on unsuspecting African Americans as a "Latino ethnic cleansing of African Americans from multiracial neighborhoods." The people who are committing these horrendous acts are not representative of the Latino community. These delinquents are gang members. It is mind-boggling that Hernandez came up with the ignorant conclusion that the entire Latino culture is to blame.

Yearning for somewhere fabulous to stop so we could cuddle him without the stench of manure and diesel, we vowed to start taking the nice way. Three years later (after chalking up more than 100,000 miles)

The star of this reality show is a Mexican immigrant who carries pink handcuffs. The bounty hunter show "Fugitivos de la Ley: Los Angeles" boasts a cast that includes two real-life federal agents and a fireplug of a man, a former U.S. Marine from Riverside. There's also a 29-year-old firefighter who grew up in Pacoima and is nicknamed "Bombero" - Spanish for fireman - and a German shepherd named Cooper. "Fugitivos" is an attempt by the small bilingual cable channel Mun2 to boost its profile by tapping into the richness of L.A.'s Latino population to find compelling characters and stories.
