The leader of a crime prevention group in Fallbrook began calling for a gang injunction earlier this year, citing fears of potential gang violence in the community.
The injunctions are controversial because of the civil-rights restrictions they place on documented gang members.
Favela, 31 and a graduate student at San Diego State University, said there is a real fear among Latinos in Fallbrook that they will be perceived ---- and perhaps even documented by deputies ---- as gang members solely because of their appearance or style of dress.
Authorities with the San Diego Sheriff's Department said they have not yet decided to pursue a gang injunction.
Still, the tensions highlight a split in the community. Read more about this at the North County Times website.
