SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Santa Ana gang member has been convicted of murder in the killing of a gang rival whose body was burned after he was shot to death.

Jorge Andrade faces a sentence of life in prison after being found guilty Wednesday of murder and committing a felony while an active participant in a street gang.

Prosecutors say the 25-year-old Andrade and two fellow gang members kidnapped, then fatally shot 16-year-old Innocente Barrera in August 2004. They say Andrade then ordered that Barrera be left in a car and the vehicle set afire.

The two alleged accomplices are awaiting trial.

It seems that Hispanic and Black activists only (re)act when it's White on Hispanic and White on Black. When it's Latino on Latino or African American on African American, the activists are so silent. :(

Recently, in Back of the Yards/Marquette Park(?), a Latino kid was killed and burned. His family and friends kept saying he wasn't in a gang, but at least one picture proved otherwise. :(
