Colorado police recently responded to a public-disturbance call. They arrived to find a couple fighting over which street gang their 4-year old son should join. (I’m not making this up.)

The father, 19-year-old Joseph Manzanares, was charged with disorderly conduct after the altercation that took place in a video store. Police said the child’s teenage mother, who is black, has her heart set on the toddler joining the nationwide Crips organization. Manzanares wants his son to follow him into the largely Hispanic Westside Ballers.

“They have different ideas on how the baby should be raised,” said police Sergeant Joe Sandoval.

Ummm . . . so does God.
