Yo vivo en lennox. Y se que ay cholitos pero ellos no lastiman a los que no son cholitos. El idiota que disparo, algun dia va a optener su merecido. Mis consolencias a las familias afectados. Espero que esto no vuelva a suceder por que no ay razon validad para quitarle la vida a gente innocente y que no tiene nada que ver.

For many years gang violence and shootings have been a pretty common thing in Lennox, but in my 26 years of living there I have never heard or witnessed such a heinous crime. This story is still too vague, need more details. I assume that the Lennox Fair is shut down for the May 5 festivities?

Seems the media has a difficult time giving descriptions, as they do not want to offend the black and mexican communities.
You must live under a rock. The media has NEVER had trouble giving descriptions, especially if the perpetrator is Black or Latino. You need to open your eyes and get a grip on reality. Furthermore, the media has never had any problem offending the aforementioned communities, nor has there been any difficulty in exploiting said communities.

You're right...the shooting would be in a corn field or at a clam bake.

Fist of all my condolences go out to the family of older man that got killed. Second of all i grew up in inglewood right next to lennox and da owner that sales tacos went to my high school (HAWTHORNE HIGH) his name is Rafael. Never really spoke to him but he is a quiet nice guy and his parents own a meat market in Lennox . I also know one of the guys that got shot his name is hector and also is a nice guy (NO GANGSTER)his a pretty boy!! they were only eating and ive bought tacos from there and dollar taco right next to this taco truck and nothing has ever happend!!! This shooting isnt even about Racism!! its about stupid little kids that think that gang bangging is cool!! I hope they find this guy and pay for what he did!!

You guys are missing the point. I don't care. All of you prejudice MFs make me laugh. I could say the most racially related things. I could say the derogatory names for whites, browns, blacks, reds, yellows, purples. I'll call it when i see it. When i hear a Latino pronounce "what" like "gwhat" I'll have my opinion. When i see a white guy put ketchup on his steak, I'll have my opinion. When i see a black guy saggin' the stuff out of his pants at the mall, I'll have my opinion, i can go on for ever and hit every race out there. The difference lies when you can act LIKE A HUMAN and stop pointing fingers and bickering like, like animals, because when you do that you're not acting civilized. I was born in Redondo Beach, raised in Lennox, and my parents are from Mexico. If you cause pain =(my idea, giant meat grinder who doesn't care what color your skin is), or if someone caused you pain and you deserved it =(meat grinder). If you are honestly innocent then my heart goes out to anyone who has felt pain. And if you have anything negative else to say...then you've just proved what I just said, true...

I'm with you & agree. I also grew up in Lennox & know Rafa. The meat market & taco stand is their family business. It's very sad that people commenting are making this a RATIAL ordeal.

This is all bullshit!I was raised in Lennox all my life and i know for a given fact that, gangbangers did not cause this! Things have been very calm lately. It had to be someone from a different neighborhood.(Blacks) They have been causing a lot commotions lately in our neighborhood! Maybe you should point the finger at someone else other than the mexicans or should i say the "illgeals"! Now things are just going to heat up in our neighborhood!

white people dont kill themselves with guns, theyre too busy with their high end drugs..Oh yeah that we dont hear about.. But if you go to PV Peninsula, theyre on crystal.. fact of the matter it doesnt matter what the city is like, You will be surprised there is still white people everywhere.Heck there some in Compton, Wilmington, Hawthorne still and yes Lawndale. It doesnt matter, gangs are everywhere, some know how to hide it ohters are still active. who cares. the fact that this person did this is still wrong. You can get shot while driving because some idiot got mad for you doing a lane change. Stick to the story and it doesnt matter where it took place, its more who did it and they need to find the idiot that did this like in a movie scene.
FYI white people kill each other its called suicide!
yeaa
