Texas Civil Liberties Group Suing for Records Related to Gang Checkpoints

The city of San Juan not complying with FOIA according to the South Texas Civil Rights Project


The San Juan gang checkpoints that fall between the balance of civil liberties and public safety are at the center of a lawsuit filed by the South Texas Civil Rights Project on Wednesday.

The Alamo group claims the City of San Juan has failed to comply with open records requests inquiring about the checkpoints. Police use them to gather data for submission to the TXGANG database maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
