First, this "family man" was out of his "territory" (from Downey) AND in Montebello South Side, especially Greenwood, which is NOTORIOUS for gangbanging, has been, always will be until they TEAR down those ugly assed section 8 apartments.

"Police believe Dewey shot Casillas after they got into an argument about 10:15.m. on July 4 on the sidewalk in the 1300 block of South Greenwood Avenue, Lopez said."

I'm real sorry for your loved one, BUT you don't go into someone else's "hood" and start "_hit", you know???

RIP dude

Concerned Citizen.....your comment was idiotic. A man and his family are free to go into anyone's "hood" and celebrate. I'm pretty sure there is no designated "territory" for a "family man." And the fact that an argument occured does not justify ANY death.

Maybe to GRINGOS or Gringo-like behavior like your's ir doesn't matter what "hood" you're from, but I did not INVENT the GANG lifestyle or their creed or motto, did you? Sometimes, that "just the way it is". "Territory" is "everything, especially when it comes to "honor", "respect" and the supply and sales of "pharmaceuticals".

DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER BECAUSE YOU DON'T LIKE THE MESSAGE!!!

Oh please! I'm nowhere near being a gringA fool. I just don't succumb to the dumb cholo mentality. I've lived in the hood all my life, that doesn't mean I need to live my life by their demeaning retarded standards. It's not just the way it is.....it's the way people like you make it. People who coward and give into their threats and fear give them the power they think they have. Congrats on being one of those who further encourage the stupid gang lifestyle as you call it.

Dear Dewey Relative:

I believe you, probably both were drinking or drunk, acting macho con macho, one said something insulting or threatening, another took it too far.

Shame, now both 2 lives are ruined. May the Lord be with both families in their hour of need.

Calling South Side Montebello a gang is giving them too much credit, its about 15 lowlife baldies with no more than a six grade education, what a joke, as is Concerned Citizen, this guy can't be real. It's these people from single parent families with no concept of a civilized society that make these communities what they are. People like them should be castrated, not allowed to reproduce, that would save the rest of us a lot money and grief.

Calling yourself "Dr. Snipit" tells me a alot!

You sound an awful lot like a cop. Maybe the Mtb City Council needs to bring back Chief Couso-Vasquez. At least when he was in charge, we NEVER had this many killings. He also worked the gang unit for LAPD.

Maybe this Chief Weast needs to come up to speed, maybe this dept needs a better gang unit, gang suppression, intelligence???

And please, don't tell me it needs more money, work with what you have.

The Media needs to get their facts straight. Also to all who think you know what happend get it straight. To the Casillas Family our hearts go out for your loss. To Mr. Dewey... May you be surrounded with thy mercy, protected by thy power, let you feel thy presence. God be with you.

However, if you are a gang member you are not free to go into any other neighborhood, family or not. This is one of the sad and unfortunate realities of the gang life. This victim might also have been a gang member, family man or not. Did anybody ever ask this question?

Has anybody considered the victim might have been a gang member also? Most gangs do not just involve themselves with regular people and there is probably more to this than what is being reported. Nevertheless, may GOD be with the victims family as well as the suspects family.
