What are you supposed to say, when you have nothing to say? My heart goes out to the families, but I don't know what else to say.

I don't think anyone knows what to say. I don't think anyone knows anything to say. Maybe this was a way for KCPD to get funded for gang violence. They are always saying how shorthanded they are. Real cops don't cry, they do their job. They protect their community and make them feel safe. We now have a worse crime rate than most big cities. And it isn't over. There has to be a Northern Gang member that hasn't been hit yet in KC. Because they get caught when they do something. Read the papers. Oh but wait. Southern do get caught for burglaries, 15 minutes after a killing. WTF is up with that? Don't try reading the Rustler now. No police, sheriff, CHP or court reports in there anymore. Why not?

ur an idoit "oh well another dead gang banger" wow have you not been paying attention. These shootings and stabbings are not just killing "gang bangers" was the little girl who was killed in at the football game around Christmas time a "gang banger" no she was not. Was the little 13 year old boy a "gang banger" no he wasn't and his life was taken from him. I went to King City high School the kids who were stabbed, or shot were most likely not the "gang bangers" I didn't know the gentleman who got shot recently but just because he got shot by a "gang banger" does NOT mean he banged. Do your homework MRKC.

Why suddenly are there no more police,sheriff, CHP or court reports in the King City Rustler? Obviously, so no one can see what is happening in our town. Isn't that our right? I don't thing the newspaper would risk pulling those columns from their paper. Why would they do that? Did someone tell them to remove these articles that have been a part of the paper since I'm assuming the beginning?

Why can't Sgt Baker answer some questions for the community or something. He seemed to have alot of pull in the security at the fair and busting gang members at Komfort Kourt. He has to have some insight on the gang problem. Is someone not allowing him to do his job? Not allowing him to speak? He has been with KCPD a long time. Let him help the people. He knows the town and the people real well. He would be able to solve these crimes. Quit holding him back. If nothing else, one of his numerous informants would know. Why not let him solve these crimes?

Are you serious? I guess, you have a good point. He does seem to have pull in many aspects and he definitely knows people. Why hasn't he been able to even come up with any leads?

Why would you want to come back? If you are a young person, why settle here? If you are older, why get stuck here? Either way, some may envy you being able to leave. You can't even walk down the streets without being in fear. Someone mentioned the absence of adults while raising their children. We all have rights but don't have children if you can't raise and afford them. For youself, be grateful you have an opportunity to relocate. If you have parents and/or children work towards getting them out! Its a shame. This use to be such a family oriented town. So many felt we had so much to offer as education, activities, sports and other programs for our children and elders. There were people who use to commute to Hollister, Gilroy, San Jose so their children and families could benefit from the safe small town atmosphere. Yes, maybe the City Council needs to read what they can and can't do! We need to reorganize our police department. The law abiding citizens are disgusted and the gang bangers and other unlawful citizens are laughing and control our town. We need to rehire an educated Police Chief with ethics, intelligence, backbone and common sense!

If you are a gang member it sounds like you don't want to be? If that's the case, state it and there are resources available to gang bangers who want out. You just say the word and I will put the resources out for you. You and I both know in order for you to be safe, you will need to get out of this area and never return

I say it too... Another gang banger dead, fuck it more air for me.. Now get your info right... The 13 yr old girl WAS a surena.. Check your info before defending a gang banger.. She was in game sitting in the bleachers with her surenos friends and surenos cousins. Why else would they shot at them?? Most of the kids that are shot were gang members like the nortenos that were shot in the garage or your going to say that red is not a gang color?? This days red and blue ARE gang colors and yes if you wear either that makes you one as well to the eyes of all the gang members as well as cops cuz you know better not to use the color period... You should do your homework before you type next time cuz I did mine and I have the real facts from the friends and family members of those who have died.. Let them kill each other as long as they leave those real innocent kids alone......

Whole Picture: I agree something is not right with the newspaper. I know people who won't even biuy the the paper anymore. As for officer baker, i'm sure he could solve more than he is letting on. Maybe he don't want to.
Wingnuts: You are so right. It doesn't matter who solves any of the crimes, just be nice if they got solved. What if people believe the cops are the reason nothing is getting solved? I know plenty of people feel that way.
5150loco: They do care about gang members..... the ones they can use to their benefit.
KC Who Cares: How many Sureno arrests have been made for the shootings? Do you know how many nortenos? All of them.

Its all twisted. The cops know all the detail. And if they dont they hear just about all of it. They just don't do anything. South siders don't get caught cause the police work with them. At least 2 cops in the pd are working with them I could be wrong it can be more. They only look for northerners. U see a cop pass a group of 5 surenos n dont even break a neck. He sees 2 northerners dressed nicely he pulls em over n tries to shake em down for guns n drugs n swears they are up to something because they feel like they can keep them in line since the majority of the population is surenos why are gangsweeps and drug busts only directed to northerners in the county. you dont hear anything about the other side. And baker doesnt do anything cause he is just as good as a sureno dont u ppl see the pictures and the news even the chief is all bad

Good old king city the gang war continues. Well I suggest the ppl contact their congress man and ask for a ballot initiative for law abiding citizens to gain access to a ccw permit. Protect yourself and family let them kill each other. That's all you can really do.
