Don't think RACE has anything to do with the thoughts of the people that are fed up with the violence that is going on, not only here with us but all over.The ones that throw etheniticity out every time some thing is said about someone other than a white American it becomes a racial issue, get a life I don't give a damn about your tan or lack of one. I have had it with the excuses given by anyone that tolerates what they know is happening, watch the news read the reports if you can, see who is contrbuting to the majority of violent crime in this country, sure does't look like it is comming from Joe the white guy, so if that is racial profiling so be it, bring it on, Go Arizona, and the ones that don't like what they see, for Christ sake get out and go somewhere else, try imposing your values or lack thereof on those people and see how far it gets you

Criminal Mexicans like blood. They are not civilized yet. This little boy has never had his butt whipped. His parents have failed miserably....Moma and Papa, you are a little late, lets be more aware on the next batch, for their sake.

I have a question, have you never seen an African American, Caucasian, or Asian gang memeber? If not, what hole are you living in? Because GANG members are of all ethnicity. Yes maybe this boy was Mexican, but does that mean that all these gang members are. Your post doesnt seem like you are defending this little girl. You are putting people of Mexican descent on blast. Saying that these people are bad parents, when you dont know them. Yes, what happened in King City that night was tragic, and my prayers go out to the family that lost that little girl. She didnt deserve to die so young. You opened a BIG racial discussion! & from what you are posting, my first guess is that YOU are NOT Mexican!

This type of event takes place all the time. I and you have often seen young Mexican girls dragging their children and strollers with babies across Fremont (Out of the cross walk),many times. I honk my horn at them and they don't get it. I yell "cross walk"...Are they teaching their children safety? I give up on Mexicans. Let the chips fall as they may!

Yes, there are gangs of all races and nationalities throughout the U.S. However, in Monterey County, in such places as Salinas Chualar, Gonzales, Soledad, Greenfield, and King City it's 100% Mexican gangs.

The little boy wasn't "maybe" a Mexican, and he, himself, didn't think he was "so little" of a boy when he was carring a gun with him and shooting people. IMO, he thought he was a real big man doing big man things.

The 11 year old girl paid with her life for illiterate, ignorant, beyond stupid mentality of little "mijo".

He wanted to be a big man, so now he's going to where the rest of the beyond stupid "big men" go.

But don't worry, "Big Bubba" is going to give him an education he'll never forget.

Wake up Mexicans ! Is that the best you can do at parenting your children ?

Yes, there are people out there that are not educated in parenting. But it's not just Mexicans! I don't know about you, but I have seen many different types of people doing that with their children not just Mexicans. Yes these parents need to be teaching their children safty I do agree with you on that one, but EVERYONE needs to teach their children safety, not just Mexicans. And when you say you are giving up on Mexicans, it seems to me like you are putting Mexicans beneath you. And what is that teaching people?

I agree that the "boy" which mind you he was a young man in his teens was acting stupid. And should see the consiquences of his action and where it leads him to. But I dont understand what you are saying. Your putting Mexicans in a whole different category than yourself. And saying that they should learn to perent. Did you not know that the little girl who lost her life was a Mexican and was raised for those short years by her "Mexican" parents? Are you trying to say that they are at fault for their daughter being killed? The fact is anyones child could have been hit by that bullet Mexican or not. Oh but wait, it was a soccer game so it must have been filled with Mexicans right? To me you are just as degrading as these young boys are to themselves when they let their heads get filled by these "OG" gang members. My family is from Mexico, my Grandparents did their very best to give my Father and his brother what they deserve, and I couldnt ask for a better life. But closed minded, rasist people like you, are the reason why such problems exsist in the world today!
And FYI our President is African American. Aslo maybe you should look at the ratio of Mexicans in the Salinas Valley. Salinas Valley is a majority of people of Mexican ethnicity. What you said about the gangs being 100% Mexican is true. Thats like saying a majority of gangs in LA are black! Maybe you should wait on stating facts untill the 2010 Census results come out.

We can split hairs for a 100 years, I really don't like discussing the "Gang" issue with Mexican people because they are mostly in denial. Mexicans are always trying to put the "Spin" on The Mexican Gang Problem in Monterey County. The simple fact is most of the crime in Monterey County involves Mexicans. Until your people start acting civilized Mexicans will be known as "A Violent Race" and Mexicans will remain at the bottom of the economy, poor, too many babies and killing each other. If your race doesn't care about their reputation, that's their problem......

So just because I'm Mexican, I'm in denial about Gangs? I know Monterey County has a gang problem, I don't believe I ever said that we didn't. You want to talk "Gangs" lets talk! These kids that run with gangs, make that choice for themselves. What gets me, is you putting the blame on the parents. If a young adult wants to put him/her self in the situation to be in a gang, that is their own choice. Is it a good one? No, but they choose how to live their life. Should they be taught a lesson if they do something stupud, yes. You are the only one that can change yourself. But, you sitting here and degrading Mexicans is just flat out wrong. Who do you think works hard everyday to not only put dinner on the table for their families but you too? How do you think your vegtiables get on your dinner plate at night? Do you think the big bad boss goes outs and picks it? Do you think that the forman that makes sure the crops are running the way they should is white? No they are MEXICANS. Although I have seen young white boys working the fields as a summer job.

But please before you judge someone that has a different skin color, think about what they do for you, and how they service you. It's sad to see someone that obviously has no understanding of Mexican culture degrade and judge someone because they have "brown" skin. I am and always will be proud of where I come from. And people like you, are just finding things to pin point out about someone thats different from you, because of something wrong in the life you are living.
Maybe you should take a good look at your self before you tell me how Mexicans live their life. Because you don't know anything untill you walk a mile in someone elses shoes!

This area has always been a blend of different people; for the most part all worked towards a common goal, for all of our future, our children.
I did observe a change in attitude in the Hispanic
community, a hostility towards anything not Hispanic, from wanting to learn English and blending in, to refusing English.
That led to changes in our school system, this wrong entitlement attitude for being Hispanic.
Over the years, it has gotten worse
I believe due to this attitude, children growing up around it, is the cause for the higher number in gangs
us against them attitude comes from the Hispanic community against everyone else, resentments have grown over the years, it reflects in American flags taken down to be replaced by the Mexican flag.
Look who gets to sign up for certain scholarships?
Asian American, Mexican American, African American
No other group may apply.
Community services/centers look who is using them
even summer school applicants, who gets priority?
Mexican migrants whether they are here legally or illegally
This kind of favoritism, discrimination breeds resentments from everyone else none Hispanic
That is just my own observation and experience
incl. that a lot of Latinos "forget" this is the US
with it's own laws incl. immigration laws that should be respected and followed, that incl. speaking English

Your are 100% correct. I'm not saying the white man needs to revolt but the true Americans regardless of race and religion who believe in our American flag, speaking and writing in English and hardworking. Also Americans who believe in the sanctity of marriage, only having as many children as you can afford and have pride to stay off welfare unless its your last resort while you get on your feet not live on. The rest, go back home! Let your own people support you not us true Americans. Let's revolt and stop paying taxes which in essence means stop supporting those who live on the system and don't respect our flag.

U don't like discussing but yet here u r.. I now live in a different state n let me tell no gangs n I'm loving it but the low life people u see on the streets r for Mexicans but white n black people so I guess it depends on where u live.. since Monterey county has more Mexicans there's more Mexican people in the gangs.. where I live now there still lots of Mexicans but less of them r on gangs..
