Kids should be free to walk down the street without hearing any obscene remarks from a bunch of child molestors. I put one of those losers in jail once and i will do it again.

Us mexicans come over here to work and molest little babies and freeload off the system.

Is that what you meant to say?
Oh and it isn't all of the hispanics that live in Mattawa its just pervs like you that should be blown up and put out of their misery. Little punk
Go back to Mexico in a trunk the same way you got here LOL

Mattwa wasn't the per capita murder capitol of the nation because the police were racist. There were so many murders because the nice people there were made to withdraw and hide after five pm by gangs who far outnumber the police. Twenty people standing around a dead body and no one saw anything?! If the people who know what really goes on in Mattawa would overcome their fear of deportation and gangs and talk to the police they could do a much better job. Lets be honest, many of the residents in Mattawa think that they will be killed by gangs or deported if they talk to the police. The community standing together against gangs and with their police is the only hope for Mattawa. The mother man the police shot recently once asked me why we were harassing her son, right after we arrested him for posession of coccaine! She was just as bad as him because she protected him and let her house be used as a safe haven for drug trafficing. Thats the kind of activity Mattawa has to fight against. "Everybody" there knows who runs drugs and guns through town but no one wants to be a witness in court or for a search warrant. Mattawa has the problems it made for its self and it will have to fix them its self

The reality is that every community has it's issues and struggles. I think it best to focus on a solution. In my opinion, I think parenting is an important component in improving any community. Bringing a child into this world is a wonderful gift but comes with great responsibility. The reality is that many parents haven't invested enough time in their children whether it is as a result of ignorance, lack of education, or laziness. Regardless of the reason there is no excuse, and sadly it negatively impacts any community.
I hope that every parent can spend the necessary time to raise children that will be productive citizens.
A lack of good parenting is unfair to any community and for the child itself. Becoming a parent is far too easy while raising a child comes with great struggles but brings great rewards.
I hope that someday we can sit and dialogue without attacking and disrespecting each other.
Children learn from their parents example, and sadly many of these comments are filled with hatred and swearing.

Well, apparently everyone besides a few believe that Mattawa is a hardcore "Gang" infested place, when actually it really isn't. Truth is that theres only a handfull of these "Gangsters" who are actually the ones doing the crimes around here, but they have either been killed or locked away in jail. Mattawa recently has calmed down after most of the more serious members were incarcerated. I hate to see a few mess everything up for all of us, and thats why I understand why most American's hate on our race so much. BTW I live here in Mattawa so I actually do know what really goes on here.

Thank you woah, that's what i've been trying to say. All this BS about mattawa being hardcore is ridiculous. I lived here my entire life and it was only dangerous for a little while, although i would have to disagree with you on the calming down. If there was a time when it was getting bad it would be right now, there have been a few murders lately that are giving this town a bad name again, but not like stupid nancy thinks that the crime was MEXICANS looking at her, now thats pathetic.

Oh, this is going to be good. "I" do live in mattawa, and i dont like it. Nancy does have a few valid point regarding the amount of illegal immigrants that are here, regardless of the reasoning or some of your opinions and bold "white man done us wrong again" comments. I believe that if the community (us citizens and papered americans), as a whole, envoke there right to carry firearms and go on about business, until they get messed with by one of these "gangstas". At which point the pistol, or weapon of the persons choice should be drawn down on the piece of sh#t and unloaded in his/her face as if to make a point! And then the next one and next one and next one! Get what im saying? Dont put up with this nonsense. Its just as much the communities fault as it is the illegals. I carry 2 semi auto pistols and an assault rifle in my vehicle at all times just waiting for one of these jokers to test me. Have a swell day mattawa...die Zeit vertreiben!

I use to live in mattawa. I was born and raised in mattawa. Once I graduated I needed to leave. Not because of gang but because it was a drain. 10 years have past and I have graduated from college and have a career that is successful. I have found the man of my dreams and has had one tiny blessing that is now almost 4 years old. My parents unfortunately live in Desert Aire, which means I have to still visit them in this awful town. Everything I hear about that town is awful. I am not racist but when I visit mattawa all the stereo types come true and makes me hate the town I once grew up in be ashamed of where I'm from...........mattawa should have some respect and kick the welfare out and start fre

nancy im sorry you feel that way about all hispanics. I lived in mattawa for a long time and you are right there is a gang problem but its not gonna get fixed by expressing your hate towards, and putting all the blame on mexicans, legal or not. You say that everything would be taken care of by sending an INS bus through the town, but that bus is not gonna pick up mexican american gang members or White gang members, yes there is such a thing. i think that the biggest problem in mattawa is that we judge people without even knowing them. there is good and bad people in every race.

Why are you going to college at 31? Mattawa is a shithole. A bunch of irresponsible people that don't want anything more in life then picking apples and causing problems. If you truly care about your country, your community, and most of all your family, then all of you people that live there need to step up and change the entire culture of how people live there. Everyone knows Mattawa is a dive, it isn't a secret. Hope the farmers who reap the benefits from all the illegals are happy. I moved to north dakota where life is good. And to all of you who thinks Mexicans are all bad, their not, you just need to move away from Mattawa
