<quoted text>Lady please never mind the gangs.There are no gangs in Lawrence.All the crimes here are being committed by white collar criminals.And those criminal are the same ones the people elect througth dirty tricks that place them where they want to be. People have no idea what is happenning in Lawrence.We have no Mayor, NO Police Chief, no one to represent the people as a whole community.The Mayor is the mayor of the Dominican people and he is going to run this city like a republic from the third wolrd. So say good by the Constitution. Don't you know the only crime recognized in Dominican community is theft. Selling drugs, insurance fraud, money laundering and having the dead people vote in the elections are not to them crimes. Drug dealing for example is bussiness and if one from they race commint insurance fraud he is someone smart. So wake up people like they say every day in the streets and supermarkets. Dominicans own this City, from City Hall, police station, state rep, and every other agencies in town belong to them.Including all the legal and illegal bussiness, like they chant all the time. "Si se puede" I have never seen in my 89 years of life an illegal wave of immigrants more organize in a criminal way than this Dominican race.
Dominicans are the problem? Really? Wake up, the majority of the citizens in Lawrence are the problem. It's the racist rich people in Andover and all the other suburban towns surrounding Lawrence that pin it on people they dont understand. I live in Lawrence wen to school here all my life, Im white it bothers me that poeple like you are the ones in the eagle tribune saying bullshit and it still gets published. You shouldnt be the voice of lawrence. Its easy to put all the problems on immigrants in the city they are the majority of the citizens. You sound really ignorant saying Dominicans are the one's, first off, when did lawrence become strictly Dominican, you might have made your point if you said hispanic. You are right that the politics in Lawrence are corrupt, but why is that the "Dominicans" fault because of the mayors ethnicity. It could just be because hes a bad man and corrupt, if he were irish would you say them irish are all corrupt and out for themselves? Corruption has been in America long before any ethnic race came here.

Lmfao Lawrence is by far one of the WORST cities to move to.. Iknow its been a while since the last post but.. Lawrence and Haverhill in particular are home to *Gangster Disciples,Latin Kings, Dominicanz Don't Play, MS13, 18th Street, Bloods, Crips, Tiny Raskals etc...not to mention there are homegrowns and hybrid gangs up here that differ from Boston area gangs.. I lived in Malden, Saugus, Lynn, Revere, East Boston.. All over and believe me if u are thinking of moving to either Haverhill or Lawrence make sure Yu either find a realllly nice spot on the outskirts.. Or just avoid this area completely

I once worked with a gal who served in the US Army.

While in the Army is a southren state she was located on a Army base that was on a river with a dam on the base.

Once in a while the base would get a call from the sherff upstream of the base. Turns out when a gang was problematic in the upstream town the Sheriff would ID the gang leader. They would then pick up the leader and kill him and dump him in the river. The made a call to the military base as a warning to look out for the body at the dam.

That process kind of took care of the gangs.

If this info is not firsthand, it serves no purpose. Unless there are names, dates, and locations, this is as good as fiction.
