Tis is not even a cowboy town yet it seems that every little pea size brain,chip on his shoulder,
don,t mess with me fool gives himself the right to carry arms just because he wants too.why
are these ignorant people shooting people of their own culture,race,color and or creed?
It is sad that a city like Los Angles can not even celebrate or have festivals without some kind of violance.

The City of Carson has an inordinate amount of Violent Crimes and it is getting worse! Our City is not safe with Gangs, Crime and Drug activity out of control. Carson is now considered to be South Compton; and has a similar reputation as does South Central Los Angeles and Watts!

Our Mayor and City Council have failed the average Carson resident! If you do not believe that then you are in denial or just blind and just might be the Next Murder Victim!

Hispanic illegal alien gangbangers again??? I bet it's the Hispanic gangbangers who did the shooting.

Where can I sign the petition to put Jamiel's law on the November ballot?? Last I heard, Jamiel Shaw and others started rallying for supporters in Leimert Park. Is there a closer location??

Iv'e Always Found Samoans to be very warm bighearted people i guess once the younger one's are raised here in LA they turn more like Latino or African American gangbangers (they Dumb Down) what a shame. at least the right one died this time.

What's wrong with our people these days? We're killing eachother over colors, neighborhoods, and money. We're already small in numbers and our own people are killing ourselves off and than we're gonna be like the Hawaiians extict. Appreciate your race and where you come from. We were never raised like this. We were raised with much more respect than this. So I appologize on the behalf of my Samoan race to all those who read this. Please do not judge our race off of a group of people who lost their temper and made a mistake. To all the Samoans stop gang banging. Get your money, education, and make your family proud. Do something good for our up and coming generation instead of making them into the worlds next criminals.

Man we all know that Carson is known for the gangs n crap...its the truth rite?? I think its best to change the location of Samoan Flag Day. Its so sad we cant celebrate our culture...or anyone elses culture without some ignorant gangs trying to ruin it. It was a friendly affair...and totally uncalled for.

Welcome to the United Halfbreed States of America.

Every time the multi-culties welcome a new "opressed minority" into America, this is the #### you're going to see.

Send those Samoans back to whatever p#ss pot country they call home, and let them rot.
