Dress like a Cholo/Thug, including shaved head, suffer the consequences. Society no longer sheds a tear for the players in this ongoing anti-social circus.

This is another reason why newspapers are so damnn PC and reluctant to publish pics of the victims/suspects. Usually they alike, cut from the same cloth.

Another tip for the few who have evolved away from the look is to get the fk out of these neighborhoods as fast as possible and once out do not come back to hang out.

Not all Harbor young people follow the thug dress code and it is a conscious choice. I notice the kids attending POLA HS look and behave normal, whereas SPHS kids emanate thug. Parents need to stay on top of their kid's demeanor and simply refuse to enable the adoptioin of thug demeanor/attire. As to the young adults in their 20's, who choose to get tatted up, shave their head and wear thug clothing take note that you only have yourself to blame if you end up a statistic.

Wow, now it's a racial illegal thing? C'mon people we all have our indigent, law breaking individuals. Let's stop casting stones. Unemployment isn't going to change racial status. Education might change your potential if you look the part. Yes, you might get shot even if you have a PhD because you look like a homie, common WASP's will continue to fight to make themselves look good. The ones saying nothing are sitting at hone with an illegal housekeeper in an exclusive home. Wake up people. These kids probably are better off. Hopefully the world will end soon. Since everyone is reading The Bible, or was that just a bible? Oh wait, we are assuming everyone can read? Sometimes I just have to say something because it gets so out of hand.
If the world does not end within the next fifty to hundred years, a futuristic ultra high tech society will not tolerate barrio/ghetto gang behavoir, nor anything (demeanor/attire) resmebling it. Many scenarios have made there way out as novels and screenplays. Read a novel recently, where benign chips were embedded behind repeat criminals ears, which took all of the aggression out of them. Nothing new here, that Geroge Orwell did write about in his classic 1984, nor that was portrayed in Soylent Green. In a futuristic society, one could not afford to dress or behave like a thug, consequences too severe.

ok i live real close to the shooting. i was out that day but was home around 6 months prior when early morning the exact same area 2 boys were shot at. one left there bicycle out in the street.

i heard several rounds but heard later no one was shot. there was a neighbor who claimed she saw a black cady escalade where the gunfire came from.

wondering if this was not the same 2 boys...sounds like the same car. i came here to ask if they have caught the killer yet? if it were me being shot at.. i would be there talking to the cops describing vehicle etc. after rather than long gone.

i am not mex. so i too wonder why?? why shoot inocent kids? it seems to me these kids could have been steeping on toes (drug dealing?) or related to someone who was a gang member...there cous shot his cous so they shot them...just guessing.

i saw that someone had a picture posted of the kids that were shot and they were flashing gang signs...what up with that?

i truly believe that both shootings were related

anyways i am just trying to understand what the heck is going on...sorry for the loss to all who knew these young kids and your loss of family and or friends

lots of people have been murdered here in a 3 block area tells me gangs are at it.

yes i heard that some go out and just shoot certain innocent just because of long fueds

The Landlord is correct! Tell Councilman Joe to get on it. He won the Council seat and now he has to deliver.

lol ... Joe will only pickup where the dumb blond Hahn stopped, he already flip flopped his talk about the parking meeters. Now that he is ine the other volture council members will fill him in on how things are done in down town. It won't be long before Joe will turn his back on the people.

You are right, Jackson. Joe Buscaino needs to get the murderer(s) of Eva Tice and the unfortunate young woman that was raped and murdered in Wilmington. But I share your concern that a lot of good people will be disappointed with Councilman Joe

Is there someone in davids family named christian? Or someone close to him named christian... And a maria is popping in my thoughts? I live near the area where david passed away and I did not know him what so ever, i actually barely moved to the area about two years ago... Im asking this because I feel his spirit present. He wants me to let his family know he loves them and he also is sad that he is not here to spend time with his family .... I see him cry he misses life and family and friends he wants closure. I am not trying to upset anyone or make a joke of anything please understand I an just trying to get a message across.

I am so close to cussing you out!
you can be sick and tiered of "barrio pathology" all you want cause at the end of the day, YOU AREN'T THE ONE SCARED TO GET A CALL THAT SOMEONE YOU KNOW GOT KILLED!!!!
these two guys in particular where GREAT guys. you don't even know what you're saying foo. Jorgie and David didn't go looking for trouble. a girl tricked them. why them I don't know. all I know is that they didn't deserve to go.
I'm no gang member, I'm far from it. yet my mom can't control me. don't judge their parenting skills because they are already paying for every mistake they've ever made, they lost their kid. they didn't know this was going to happen because it's not something you wake up knowing.
homie I live in the hood, I don't need your thoughts to know what's true and what's not. I know a banger when I see one.
come and TRY to live a day in my shoes. guaranteed that it'll change your ways of seeing things completely.
