as a long time resident of salinas and including all the others, i / we are numb to the fact that gangs continue to thrive in our community. yes the authories are doing everything possible, it's just not enough. perhaps salinas should take note of this article and follow in the footsteps of the above mentioned cities. if it takes bringing in a multitude of federal agents, so be it. if it also involves knocking on a few doors, and interviewing those occupants, prepare for it. to all of us who should happen to come in contact with the task forces, co-operate. any information given no matter how in- significant it may seem to us, they will know how to filter out the useful tips. and for the neighbors witnessing these visits, don't assume the negative. for your door could be the next. and as innocent as you are and am only co-operating, remember, somebody will always be watching and developing an opinion. and in closing, one of my many prayers is to re-live the simplier life in the town as my mind remembers it and my eyes have seen it, back in 1969.

man they really need to get the facts straight, nobody was scared to live in epa. They took care of the community and helped people when they didn't have nothing at all. They were just all friends gang lol thats funny... if the police really did their research they would know the mexicans ran every thing in epa. They picked up a lot of people that were just friends with them. Its not fair to them or their families. These men are in the childrens lives and look wwhat the police done. The FBI needs to investigate the police that recieves money from the mexicans and that on the pay roll... oh wait thats why they didnt investigate them. Oh okay now I get it. Especially officer glover in oakland he is nortorious for taking the dealers money and leaving. Or even sometimes arrest them but they make sure he gives everybody their split. Isn't that right officer kim.

A little bit of "libel" going on here on this comment, this is a lot more obscene than saying "peanuts"... not right!

it is hard to live in fear. these people should realize how this will affect their life, their family especially their children. It scares me to death the life of my family is in danger. No there other safe place to live anymore. our life is threatened once we step our of our door. We all should pray. Pray for those people to realize not to do this anymore.
