I just watched this nes clip and read the story that goes with it and I'm appalled by what they have written...

"Lt. Terry Chamness of the Big Spring Police Department told CBS 7 News, "...the Latin Kings whole purpose is to deal drugs and prostitution..."

Since when is the "sole" purpose of the Latin Kings to sell drugs and prostitute??? Help me understand this somebody because I don't think anyone's "sole" purpose is to sell drugs and prostitute. This just sounds rediculous. And this Rios' claim they don't know why the Latin Kings targeted them?!?!

BULL$HIT!!! a)how do you know it was the Latin Kings fi you were ducking bullets?? and b) I seriously doubt that LK is just gonna go around shooting at people for no apparent reason. They know if it was LK why they were being targeted!!!

I DIDN'T SAY I KNEW AND I AM AWARE THAT A WOMAN WHO WAS PREGNANT WAS KILLED AND IT IS HORRIBLE AND NEEDS TO STOP...SEE BEFORE U GO ATTACKIN SOMEONE U DON'T KNOW WHY DON'T YOU TRY TO PAY ATTENTION.
ALL OF THE BULLSHIT NEEDS TO STOP!!! PERIOD BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY ALL THE LIVES BEING LOST WILL NOT MAKE IT ANY BETTER. AND JUST BECAUSE I'M FROM NJ DOESN'T MEAN THAT I DON'T KNOW. I MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT THAT WHOLE SITUATION BUT IT'S NO DIFFERENT FROM STATE TO STATE...WHAT A LOT OF YALL FAIL TO REALIZE IS THAT IT'S A NATIONWIDE EPIDEMIC IT'S NOT JUST WHERE YOU'RE FROM OR WHERE I'M FROM. AND ALSO YOU NEED TO STOP AND TAKE A LOOK AT THE PEOPLE YOU LOOK TO FOR PROTECTION. YEA, I SAID IT, THE ONES THERE ARE THERE SO "SERVE AND PROTECT" YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN A UNIFORM INSTEAD OF IN GOD AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS!!!
I AM SORRY FOR THEIR LOSS BECAUSE THAT IS IGNORANT AS HELL TO SHOOT UP A HOUSE WITHOUT REGARDS TO THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE THERE, YOUNG, OLD OR UNBORN...THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT PAY THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR SOMEONE ELSE'S 4UCK UP, YA FEEL ME??
I WAS JUST REACTING TO WHAT THE STATEMENT WAS AND IF I'M READ IT CORRECTLY IT WASN'T THE FAMILY THAT SAID IT WAS LK IT WAS THE POLICE. SO WHY YOU FEEL THE NEED TO ATTACK ME IS REALLY UNCALLED FOR...
STAY BLESSED

God bless them and their family...and hopefully something good will come out of such a tragedy. There is no justification to the loss of innocent life, and it is sad how we jeopardize our own love ones when we chose the life of drugs and gangbanging.

You call yourself criticizing the nation because we are said to be responsible for Killing 3, including an unborn child. There is no doubt that the Latin King Nation mostly functions as a criminal organization. If you were to read the ALKN Manifesto all these apparent contradictions in the nation will finally make sense to you. I'm going to give you the watered down version so that maybe you can be enlightened. There are three stages that every King goes through:

The Primitive Stage:

this is the stage where the young King warrior gets caught up in gangbanging and other senseless disputes--which relate to the need for recognition and personal gain. He's like a little lion cub trying to feel out the jungle, and committing increasingly more destructive acts. But he is not fully aware of the royalty that runs through his veins. He has yet to know his real purpose.

The Conservative Stage:

In this stage the mature King no longer desires to gangbang and no longer is motivated towards earning street recognition. He focuses on his queen and his personal responsibilities: his wife and kids, his job, his personal goals etc...Alot of Kings retire at this stage. But this stage is the mummy stage (the King lives, but he is not living authentically: according to his true purpose). He senses the meaning of gang rivalry and yearns for something more. The real Kings advance to the next level.

The Stage of Kingism:

This is the stage of awareness...perceiving 360 degree of strong King Wisdom. As a King further matures, he begins to reflect upon his past actions and how he hurted his own people. He begins to realize that those who he thought were his enemies were actually his very own Oppressed Third World Peoples. He realizes that there are other forces out there that seek to demoralize and oppress all of us. Some of those things are poverty, discrimination, prejudice, racism etc...hence, then New King finally realizes what his real purpose is: To help educate the poor and to shed light upon the deplorable conditions that deny us our rightful place in society.(That place being amongst the thrones of Kings and Queens). It is at this point that the King stands up against oppression: against police brutality, against racism, against injustice etc...Kingism is the highest level of awareness achieved by any King. His mission becomes not just for his King Brothers but for the Brotherhood of Man. He seeks the upliftment and well-being of his fellow human being. But it is well understood that it may take time for a King to acheive 360 degrees of awareness. And it is the previous two stages that builds character and prepares the King Warrior to stand up against his oppressors.

That was the watered down version, not word for word. Just so you can finally understand our contradictions. Kingism is the goal of the ALKN. Unfortunately alot of our brothers are still at the Primitive stage. And that is why you read headlines in the papers like this. But we recognize our faults and there are alot of brothers that are working towards correcting them. You may think that we are hypocrits or that we contradict ourselves, but you dont know anything about this Almighty Nation. But like it is stated "He who does not know, and does not know that he does not know, is a fool...avoid him.

Damm I can't say anything about that/ I love gang banging/ But I don't steal,cheat,sell drugs, or do anything bad other that. I just love fighting.You bring your fist I bring my fist you bring a gun I bring an AK you bring an AK I bring a Bazzoka you get my drift. Amor De Rey to all those brothers tryig to stay away from the bullshit. That's good don't worry because when you come back home from studying or wroking we will have your hood on lock and it will be given back to you. Because you gang bang it does not mean that you don't have to do good out there in the world. Always fight but keep your ethics strong/ ADR
