16 'Mexican Mafia' Members Indicted - (SAN ANTONIO) -- A federal indictment
in San
Antonio accuses 16 alleged members of ``La Mexikanemi''... better known as
the ``Mexican
Mafia''... of engaging in racketeering, murder, retaliation and extortion.
Prosecutors didn't have to
go far to find evidence. On the first page of the indictment is a section of
the ``constitution'' of the
Mexican Mafia. It states ``being a criminal organization... we deal in
drugs, contracts of
assassination, prostitution, robberies of the highest degree, gambling,
extortion, weapons or any
and every other thing criminally imaginable.'' The indictment spells out the
bloody path to power for
Mexican Mafia ``General'' Robert ``Beaver'' Perez, and relates how two
Mexican Mafia leaders...
including Perez... control the organization from their state prison cells.
