Two more murders in Hemet today! I think the city should eliminate more police officer positions. Just let everybody kill each other.

Hemet City Council candidate David Peters number one priority is public safety. He believes the police need to focus more on crime instead of traffic or code enforcement. During tough times, crime increases and becomes more violent.

I will be supporting David Peters on Election Day. Please join me.

David Peters is nuts! There are not enough police officers in Hemet. The assignments are not the problem.

It is time that the Hemet Community provide opportunities for the young people who live here. Hemet has become a negative environment for providing nothing for young people to get involved. With gangs growing more in are neighborhoods, it is beoming difficult to live in this once safe environment. If More companies & churches and the city work with the Middle & High School students for positvie work ethics, maybe our city will be a more peaceful place to live. As far as David Peters, if he wants my vote, he needs to be more involved in the community. Which means tackling the negative neighborhood as well as the positive ones.(which is getting less). Of course this would not happen overnight. What happen to neighborhood watch? I beleive several years ago Hemet was a safe place to live in. What happen. Please provide your thoughts.

Many of these people were not raised here. The bad economy has brought many of them here because of the low rents. We do need more police. But we also need more of us that are concerned to speak up. Call the police if you see something suspicious. Take notes, write down license plates if something seems out of the ordinary or strange, you never know if something just happened. Many of these landlords take anyone in just for the money because of this economy. Many of us look the other way like petty crime is not our business, but it is. When you see someone shoplifting, report it, quit looking the other way.

You can have a thousand cops and it won't make much difference, given the quality of the residents who are moving into our town. I have lived here since 1994 and there have been multiple murders here a few times. It is interesting how two cities, Temecula and Moreno Valley, which developed at approximately the same time, turned out so different. Could it be planning decisions made at the time by these respective cities that steered them down the road they took? Both are policed by the Sheriff's Dept., so that doesnt seem to be the issue.

Hemet needs to decide which they want to be....another MV or another Temecula. The direction we choose to go in will be decided and implemented primarily by the city council we elect. We need strong leaders with strong personalities.

I have lived in the east end of hemet for 15 years and it is amazing to see the transformation of the neighborhood in that time. It has become full of parolees and their families and, predictably, the crime, vandalism, and overall deterioration of the area has followed. This is a huge problem in most areas of our city. Where criminals go, crime follows.....pretty easy formula to figure out.

Another huge problem is the influx of illegal Mexicans over the years. The first generation that comes here looking for work aren't the problem...it is the kids they bring and raise here who fall into gangs that are that danger. Take a look at the Sheriff's website and see the crimes that are committed on a daily basis along with the pictures of the criminals committing them. They are almost all young hispanics, most of them with previous records and out on parole. These people werent here 15 yrs ago...why now? Why do we have such a disproportionate number or them compared to other cities such as Temecula?

This is what our leaders need to be addressing.....not the stupid things they mostly spend their time on. I have read of past leaders commenting on the parolee problem but no one ever really gets involved to do something about it.

If we want this to change, we need to elect and continue electing strong minded leaders who can fight the fight. We need people who are mature, experienced, and have been here awhile and have seen the transformation that has taken place over the years.

What we dont need is some guy who thinks raising the sales tax will help, or some oung housewife who's husband is a cop and therefore knows what we need, or some lady who has served on every group and committee that does absolutely nothing. This is a city with many problems that needs strong leadership now, not a country club. There are tough choices to be made and they need to be made by people tough enough to follow thru and fight back when resistance is encountered. It will be interesting to see if the voters really do pay any attention or is they just read the signs along the hwy.

ACCOUNTIBILITY. That is what this town needs. People need to raise their children not to join gangs, use drugs and committ crimes.
The police cannot be everywhere at one time. They don't know when a crime is going to happen.

People grow up not caring about anyone or anything. That all goes back to the way they were raised.

The laws need to change. Make the punishment fit the crime. And if we need more prisons, then build them. So many friminals just get a slap on the wrist.

As for me I am sick of all the crime that has hit this town. So tomorrow I am starting a letter campaign. Write your police, mayor, city council, assemblyman, congressman and senators. They write the governor. they all have email addresses.
Start bitching and complaining to the right people. Tell them you are stired of all this crap.

Remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

The people of Hemet need to form a group to take back and clean up Hemet from all the drug dealers, gang members, and other criminals that infest the city. That means more police on the street and zero-tolerance on crime of any sort. I feel so sorry for the folks who have lived there all their lives and now have to put up with all the problems resulting from the undesirable people that are moving in to this city; enough is enough! Hemt could be a beautiful place to live again if the people would speak out and get involved! Good luck!

Not good luck! Good bye!

There is a stampede and the "Lifers" and San Jacinto Valley "movers and shakers" are moving out of the valley into the desert, Temecula, Murrieta and elsewhere. Corrupt city and county officials have turned this valley upside down with the help of developers. They have exploited this once wholesome, agricultural, retiree and family friendly community. Opportunists have moved in. They are catering to low income. Riverside County has designated Hemet as the "one stop shop" for low income with a plethora of social services along with dollar stores, thrift stores, churches and charities. "Hemet is Heaven" for social services. Even the old "Smart and Final" store on State is being turned into a Riverside County venue for low income seniors. It's too late for Hemet to turn this around. The smart folks are getting out.

I made the irreversible mistake of investing in Hemet 16 years ago when it was a world class city. If I had even an inkling of what a dump it would become by 2011, I can assure you I would never have set my roots down here. It is without one of the worst pigsties I have ever seen. Our city fathers are more preoccupied with crap issues such as raising taxes instead of focusing on the problems their policies have created which is unbelievably high crime, deteriorating quality of life, plunging property values, filthy neighborhoods, parolees/child molesters living here by the hundreds, beggars boldly stalking retirees in wheelchairs, hookers walking down Florida avenue in broad daylight., etc. Congratulations to the morons running this city. Thx to them we are one step away from becoming another Moreno Valley. Worst part of it is that those of us who invested here can't move because we're trapped due to the collapse of real estate values., another problem contributed to mightily by our elected geniuses.

I am so saddened by the direction of hemet. My son is only three and I am making it my Priority to get out of here! I was raised in idyllwild and moved here. I am very aware of the area. The turn it has made sickens me and worse everyone complains online now a days but does anyone take action like we did before? A lot of our issues in this town are also huge issues else where. Yet nothing changes. I might be young and not as educated but I do know the only major changes I've ever heard of in our history was when People stood together for something the believed in and protested. But u can't get that today. To many people would rather sit comfortably and complain online. But that's not working is it? Our whole state is being over run by imigrants and their crime that follows is just one of the problems. Just like with hemet. We do need a strong leader but we also need more people to come forward and make change themselves. One act of kindness can have a larger impact then we realize and in today's world that's just what we need.

I was wondering if there is any part of Hemet that is safe. I was looking to buy something near the school around Devonshire, Campus Way and Weston. Is that a good area or bad area?
I read something about a woman being found dead in that area in 2010...is that correct?
I don't want to relocate in an area that would be unsafe for my family. Any advice where to locate in Hemet?
