Why does the US have Tongan Crips attacking each other in court? US marshal shoots defendant in federal court and Authorities investigate shooting at new Utah federal courthouse.Googling for a picture of Siale Angilau, the guy who got shot, I found the original story of why they're in court:
Why are they even here? Football scholarships?
Is this all about the "financialization" of college?
Or the financialization of America?
4 indicted in string of robberiesAnd every single one is a Tongan. As for how people from the Pacific get to America, see this series of posts by me:

Saying the community is tired and weary of violent crimes involving guns, federal and state law enforcement announced some hefty charges against four men suspected in a long string of armed robberies across the Salt Lake Valley.
During a press conference Friday, U.S. Attorney for Utah Brett Tolman announced a 24-count indictment had been handed up by a federal grand jury against Viliami Loumoli, 20, of Salt Lake City; Filikisi Hafoka, 19, of Salt Lake City; Siale Angilau, 20, of Salt Lake City; and John Taukalau, 20, of Magna. The men are charged with violating the federal Hobbs Act by using, carrying, brandishing or discharging a firearm during a violent crime.[More]

This is fine if they're playing football, or being Sumo wrestlers, but if they're forming Tongan gangs, it's a problem.
