MY heart felt sympathy goes to the young girls family BUT AS CITIZENS NEED 2 TAKE A HARD STAND AGAINST THIS VIOLANCE IN OUR TOWN PEOPLE SAY THEY WANT CHANGE BUT NOT VERY MANY PEOPLE TAKE A STAND AND DO SOMETHING EVERY ONE NEEDS TO GET ENVOLVED AND TAKE OUR TOWN BACK FROM THESE LOW LIVES AND GANG BANGERS

Christina Galvez was my sister-in-Law and mother of my two nephews, who now will have to grow up not knowing what a wonderful women/mother she was. And she will be greatly missed and her family will remind her son's, every chance we have, of what a great and warm hearted person she was. She didnt deserve this. To all the gang members who think it is cool and an honor to represent your hood i hope u realize that being involved in what you are involved in can not only hurt you but it can hurt the people all around you. You wife, husband,kids, and innocent friends. And then where is your hood at? We need to stop the gang violence from within the gang and we need to make these gang members see what they are really doing in the name of honor. I hope this will reach somones heart and start to make a change.

I knew Christina for about ten years and she did not deserve this. She was a sweet girl that was trying to do the best she could. I can't comprehend why or how someone can take someone's life and think that it is okay. Now two innocent babies don't have a mother, for what? It is senseless and I hope that the person who is responsible for this tragedy is brought to justice. My deepest sympathies to her parents, brother, kids, and close family and friends.

The problem is the shooters are under 18 which makes them children and also are mexican.
Which if your a police officer and you get into a situation and have to decide to shoot at them or be killed. If you shoot and kill the suspect you get fired for shooting at a mexican child. If you don't shoot you get killed. Also if the police officer gets killed you won't see Cicero mexican residents marching mourning the death of the police officer. Families of gang-bangers have to throw their kids and turn them into police. But that's not going to happen because then that makes the mexicans look bad to other races. They would rather save their pride and demand change which means put a mexican for mayor in Cicero than to solve the problem of turning in bad kids! Just think if Cicero did this you will have a mexican community with no gangs!! That's unheard of!!

she,along with all others who's been killed/murdered in cicero over the past 25 years should have stayed in mexico.at least they would possibly still be alive today.
i grew up in cicero in the 1950's-1960's.
we did'nt have mexican's hence we did'nt have the gangs and the problems that mexican's/gang's have brought to this entire country,especially cicero.
well you can have it.its been years since i've dared to set foot in this god forsaken,gang infested town.you citizens deserve what you've brought to this once beautiful and proud town.
and as far as the gang banging murder's,god will deal with them soon.

There has been murder and crime before Mexicans you idiot! No one cared about it because whites were majority and everyone covered each other. So before you rant on with your mindless thoughts I'd say read your history! Study the past and you will find many things! If you don't like it leave our Country!

All of these racists morons blame everything on Mexicans and illegals! The whites can decapitate a little boy/girl but no one cares! But when ignorance overwhelms idiots, they rant about writings on walls or radios blaring from cars, cars being towed while little joey is raping his sister! Their is no humanity in this world but destuction and chaos! Racism is here and we will never get along that is why hate is strong and it will keep on controlling us because we are allowing it to drown us, but hey I'm all for hatred and destruction so bring it!
