mexicans rarely shoot each other in Long Beach, if a mexican gets shot, the most likely suspect is black or asian

I respectfully disagree. While there is truth in what you say, to use the term "rarely" is a stretch. It happens quite a bit, you may not be always aware, because most incidents do not make the local papers.

Unless you have stats to back up your claim...

City Hall's policy of attracting the unaccomplished, and coddling illegals, should make for a Hot Time this Summer.

A BIG WIN for for Left Wing politicians. Benefit starved Low lifes who contribute little to a Community are always a sure bet to vote for any thing that calls itself a Democrat at election time.

Long Beach is a hybrid of ELA/Compton/White Trash home breds and Cambodians who had decided for self preservation to get in the game

Long Beach is the most dangerous large City in our State, and a dirty unkempt city for the most part

Rarely is not a stretch. Mexicans rather use their fists or knives, not guns. If they do use guns, they will use it on an Asian or a Black.

Expecting Parents to Parent their children in Long Beach is RACIST and not "progressive".
Remember, we have no standards at all in today's touchy feelly Long Beach.

That was so dumb it was funny !! Im sure you received the highest level of education on them back hills in Kentucky, Do me a favor as soon as you stop sleeping with your sister or niece(probably the same person) take a look at your reflection in the mirror, look past your 4 teeth and realize how dumb you make yourself look.

I'm hoping to see the city burn this summer. I want to see your precious property values go into negative territory. I want you to have to PAY people to assume your liabilities. Tax the crap out of the citizens. Take everything they have and prohibit them from doing anything productive at all. Be the good Democrats you are. You want to know what HATE is? I hope you find out as this burg goes up in smoke. I will enjoy your pain.

In Long Beach rarely is a stretch. Cite some facts or stats to back up your claim if you are able. Unless you are a gang detective in this city and have privy to ALL the shootings that go on, I am guessing you are wrong. I can think of two recent shootings that I responded to where the suspects and victim(s) were Hispanic.

And I can think of some deals where the victims told the police the suspects were black, but in reality they were Hispanic and wanted to retaliate themselves. But that happens with all gangs and their associates.

I can agree that MOST of the shooting suspects are NOT Hispanic, but there are enough that are to take "rarely" off the table.

You do realize it does not matter who is right, kids are still shooting and being shot.

So you're saying they wouldn't rather go toe to toe with an Asian or Black because they might lose or they're to chicken too right??.."only use a gun on an asian or black?"..give me a break...if you ask me you just said to yourself that Mexicans are a bunch of pussies then...
