Virginia deletes gang database for social justice

In Virginia, "social justice" is undermining criminal justice.  Northern Virginia has a serious problem with violent criminal gangs, particularly MS13, and law enforcement responded by creating a gang member database.  Now the leftwing Viriginia state government is eliminating that database for "social justice" reasons.  They claim it contains too many minority names.
This is really asinine.  Criminal gangs are almost always ethnically based.  Could an Asian or a white or a black join MS13?  Could a Hispanic or a white or an Indian join the Crips or the Bloods?  Of course not.  Indeed, the ethnicity is often more narrowly focused.  MS13, for example is composed of illegal aliens from El Salvador.
So "social justice" in Virginia has translated to protection of violent criminal gangs because out of touch bureaucrats are concerned the database of members has too many minority names in it.
