you LEMON HEADS don't even have a varrio anymore you let the paisas from TRAMPAS take it over. That's a damn shame. Those punks can't even pronounce their street names. The DUQUES always has and always will hold their own! A la verga con las PUn`ETAS!

Is it fun to be tough on the computer there mr "hill"?
You know whats funny kid is that I just happen to have some court transcripts pertaining to a trial in which one of the little hillians got whacked and the other (Goblin) is a rat. Hey that kinda rhymes! I'm a poet and didn't know it. Let's take a look at the highlights shall we?...

Monica’s older sister, Christina, knew Hernandez, Cortes, and Penate. All three are from the "Little Hill" gang, but she knew Penate best. He was called Goblin...
...Detective Steve Wheeless of the West Covina Police Department was assigned to
investigate the shooting. On October 5, 2004, he spoke with Penate. Penate was very cooperative in this first interview. He described the events that preceded the shooting.
Penate said that he and his friends in the yellow taxi passed a charcoal gray pickup truck
with an extended cab that made a U-turn and started to follow them. The passenger in the
truck started shooting out the window, there was an exchange of gang names, and then
more shooting. The shooter had yelled,“F*ck Lil Hill.” Cortes drove to a gas station
initially to seek help, but then left.
Penate described the occupants of the pickup as Hispanic. The driver was lightskinned,
had a shaved head and a mustache, and the passenger was darker with some hair
and a very thick goatee and mustache. The driver wore an L.A. Dodger baseball cap...

...The occupants of the two vehicles shouted their gang affiliations at each other and
threw gang signs. The passenger in the pickup truck, who was later identified as
appellant, pulled out a gun and fired at the taxi, shooting Cortes in the face. Hernandez
got out of the car and began to run. Hernandez was shot in the leg and suffered a severed
artery. Residents in the area heard him calling for help and dialed 911. When Hernandez
was found, he had bled to death...

And heres my favorite part:

...Before appellant’s first trial, Penate happened to be in custody for an unrelated
offense. Deputy Patricia Bojorquez testified that she was transporting appellant from
lockup to a courtroom in February 2005 when they passed Penate, who was standing
against a wall. As they passed, appellant pulled away from the deputy to lean down and
forward. Bojorquez feared appellant was going to hit Penate with his head. Bojorquez
held appellant’s chain while appellant looked closely at Penate. Appellant was nodding
his head and saying “Yeah.” Penate looked terrified and cowered. He began yelling,
“I’m not going to say nothing, I ain’t saying nothing.” At that point, other deputies
“jumped in” and pulled appellant back.

70's and 80's there was no lil hill in LA PUENTE, so their history is not long in La Puente.

Heres some more good stuff:

...the people involved in the shooting
were a Puente member named **** who drove a blue Chevy extended pickup truck,
and that East Side Dukes was also involved...
...Detective Wheeless prepared photographic lineups containing pictures of ****
and ****. When he showed them to Penate, Penate identified **** as the driver. He
identified **** as the passenger and shooter. Detective Wheeless did not tell Penate
which pictures to choose. Penate identified the truck as the one used in the shooting.
