Forget it! That's such an OLD line, it doesn't work anymore! Besides, it's heartless! Be creative and say something sensitive that will help the family of the victims to overcome their heartache...never mind..that will take too much concentration on your part. I think I'm asking for too much from you!

There's no law against looking like a gang member but if you fit their cowardly profile, stand by because the cowards will prey on you. Too many times this has happened to good people in the wrong place at the wrong time but this "look" also creates a spotlight. Come on guys, you can still look nice if you let your hair grow, wear pants that aren't 12 inches too big and people will still accept you into society.

I must quote Chris Rock with regard to his son's mother's quote of,

"He was a really good father," said Raymond's mother, Sammantha Orta. "If I needed diapers, formula, anything, I would just call him and he would get it."

"That's your Job" (Chris Rock)

As a father, it's your obligation. Don't give me credit for doing what's correct!

Rotten cowards. Worthless scum that have zero self esteem and have to rely on other worthless scum for reassurance. They will rot in hell, but it would be nice if they would all rot in prison first.

The Mexican Mafia must be so proud of having Mexicans disgrace other Mexicans by killing one another. That is a put down for the Raza. Teach a homie, make a homie, and teach him how to be proud, strong and RESPECT the Raza. Because of these senseless killings on brown on brown, the Raza is looked at as cockroaches. We need better representation, and mothers of these gang bangers need to wisen up and stand up to get their kids to a positive life where society can acknowledge youths' accomplishments by encouraging them to get an education. These killings are old, they don't bring any positive message to the youth other than you must be a really stupid person to allow someone to brainwash your sesos to do this. Idiots, think! These lifestyle will bring to you limited ends - hospital, death or life in prison. All these ends are f'd up. These cowards who killed this 19 year old will have their turn come up - Trust - they can't play with God because GOD runs the show, not these scums, and that is what they are - SCUMS. From now until then, scums, your number is already pending.

Iam
so tied of kids killing eachother!! That poor boy was playing b-ball and three bastards had to feel all big and hard and take he's life who in the hell do these men think they are? If gang members think thier soo hard they should join the service and prove that they are'nt cowards and kill people that are minding their buisness!! This animal like behavior needs to stop and these dumb kids should be concentrating on getting a life and being productive people in life so they don't have to be on welfare thier whole life!!! Iam
soo sorry for the family that lost thier son he is in a better place where no one can hurt him and i hope they catch who did this cowards!!!!!!!

If you people don't want to get hit up by gangsters then dress like a man and throw away your long white t-shirts and grow your hair. If you don't then be ready to defend yourselves cause if you look like a gang member but are not in a gang then that makes you easy prey as a wannabee.
