When are we all going to realize that this now happens everywhere? I have lived in Chula Vista my entire life and would not choose to live anywhere else. It does not matter if you live in C.V. or La Jolla....Be proud of where you live...love it or leave it.

I too have lived in chula vista all my life but that still wont cloud my judgement that we just live too close to mexico...and yes i am hispanic. No matter what we will always have issues on this due to the area we live in. We have TONS of kids that come from mexico to attend school here. More than any other city, they dont have this problem in North County....

I understand what you're saying but when did "race" fall into this story. Are you assuming since it was Castle Park then the parties involved had to be hispanic? I may not be of hispanic decent but my spouse was born in Mexico. You can't blame Mexico for what happens in C.V. I also beg to differ with you about North County...Have you been there lately? There are just as many Hispanics up north as down south. My point was do not stereo type an area and talk bad about it unless you are willing to move ...in other words if you are so unhappy living SO close to Mex.(as you said) then move!

I have lived in Chula Vista most of my life- from age 1 to 40. Then I moved to Northern California. I am glad to be out of that shithole down there. As Bob stated in his comment, his wife is Hispanic-so is my wife. She was born in Mexico and immigrated up here 25 years ago. I agree with both comments. Mexican folk think they can run all over white folk since most of the population is Hispanic down there. Especially the young males. They have no repect for others. I have also known white folks who were dirtbags also(Jim Shirk and Mike Wanamaker) who think their kids could do whatever they want. Well, they were wrong. It's all about how kids were raised.
The problem is all in the parenting. We all need to get along with each other to survive.

I completely agree with your last comment about it all comes down to how kids are raised. I have to admit that you are also correct when it comes to the Hispanics who feel they are "owed"! My one sadness is that C.V. once had a great small town feel to it then the buidling started. That is what brought in so many more people including hispanics (w/money to buy up the property).
My point earlier was they have no suspects in the stabbing but it was automatically assumed by the writer that since it was Castle Park or just C.V. for that matter the guilty parties HAD to be Mexican!! We are trying to teach our kids..you do not judge a person by there race, in ANY circumstance!!

Yes, absolutely Bob. Could have been anybody. I must admit that high school crimes have become worse over the years. Students do not need nonsense like this going on
while they are trying to get an education. I myself graduated from Hilltop High School (hooyah!) back in 1981. Seems like forever ago. Most we ever had were fights
and toilet-papering but no violent crimes. I lived about 1/2 mile from Castle Park and while it is not the best place to hang around, it has always been a "rough" area.
Hope that kid is doing ok.

We all know that chula vista is 99% hispanic and yes the young middle school to high school children love picking on the white children, but I remember that at one time it was the other way around which does not make it right, but like it was said already it the uneducated parents and believe me their is alot of them here being from Mexico its a given, try going to Costco where they just push you out of the way or take cuts, border towns always get the rude people not all mexicans are this way, I am 55% european and 44% native American I was born in Mexico 40 years ago and I am not rude although my mother is because she is uneducated. Lets face it we have trash in every race, but we all came from Africa that means we were all black at one point and alot of people think that all black people are bad, alot of them are uneducated and that is the problem.

Most of the comments here are both ignorant and racist. They fail to shed any light on the real factors behind crime in this neighborhood. The real problems which do include being in a border area but are not reduced to just race. The socio-economic status also plays a major component. The lack of real culture of the status quo also contributes to problems. White Americans profane nationalism and seclusion of its "ownership" of this country also marginalizes the young Latinos and minorities of this country. Learn to understand before you judge. If I was around you ignorant bastards (including you whitewashed Latinos) I would probably be committing crimes as well. You may call it reverse racism I call it karma.

excuse me?? you are a disgrace to Mexico you freaking racist piece of trash! excuse me, but just because we live close to Mexico, doesn't mean that Mexicans are the ones with the fault, you know? Americans are criminals as well, so don't blame your freaking miserable shity life on Mexicans! so you're saying you're hispanic huh? well, from what you're saying, i think you're the one who stabbed that boy! i think police should arrest you because now you're becoming too suspocious! I think you're in your freaking miserable life and you have nothing else to do but to blame your screwed up life to mexicans! i don't give a shit if you don't like mexicans because guess what? we're everywhere now! we run big companies! yes, some of us run low jobs like building! but guess what? you wouldn't last a single day without mexicans! mexicans are just like anybody else! if any different then americans, they are darker! And that's it! You huge embarrassment to hispanics! I hope your family stops loving you for being such a huge hipocrit!! You know how dumb you are? It's like you're saying, "oh mexicans have the fault for everything that's wrong with me. But not me even though im mexican." HOW DUMB DOES THAT SOUND?!!
So how about you save your little racist retarded hipocrit mind to yourself so you don't sound dumber than you already do? Even though it's kind of hard for people to think of you any dumber then they already do, but just in case, keep your freaking mouth shut with your little racist comments and go keep living your pathetic boring live and start taking responsability for your actions instead of blaming it on ther people!

All u guys are lame.#1 Chula Vista is not 99% Hispanic. There are loads of other ethnicities down here. I would say maybe 53% Hispanic.#2 Chula Vista is not ghetto, or a s**thole. Southeast San Diego and City Heights is ghetto (and even SESD has cleaned up alot since the 80's and 90's) The only "rough" areas of CV are the Otay, Bay Vista Heights, and Marborough Heights neighborhoods. And even those areas are not as bad as they used to be.Don't forget that CV has a huuuuuuuge eastside that is full of upper income neighborhoods. Saying CV is ghetto, is like saying SD is ghetto. Kids don't gangbang in CV because of some pseudointellectual theory on socioeconomic and racial issues. Most of the "rough areas" have a lot of middleto upper middle income families living in those neighborhoods. And-there are many white folks living side by side with the Mexican American and African Americans in the "rough" areas of CV. Hispanics are in no way marginalized in CV, culturally, economically, or socially. Kids gangbang in CV because they are trying to emulate gangsters from real hoods.

Sir,

With all due respect, I am "Hispanic", I live in Chula Vista. My home is not a, "shithole", it a a one million dollar home. You are welcome to drive here one day and revist your old neighboorhood./ It has come a long way.

My children are respectful and educated. I assure you that they were not raised in the "shithole". They were raised in a nice neghboorhood called Chula Vista, Ca.

I have lived in Chula Vista my whole life and I have never felt in danger for my life not even on the west side of town. You know were not to go in any city. Go up to L.A. if you want to see a real ghetto. No matter where you live, there is one close by up there. I go up to North County and the kids are completely disrespectful running down aisles at stores moms looking in the other direction not caring they are running into everything and everyone. That seems to be the norm not the exception up there. People seem to be more snobby and inconsiderate of others up there. I like it fine down here.

CV is not ghetto. A lot stuff happens on the west side and in Otay, and there are gangs in those areas, but CV is still not ghetto. You want to see ghetto, go to City Heights, Logan Heights, Sherman Heights, Mountain View, Southcrest, and Shell Town. Those areas are like LA hoods.
