Thank you for all the publicity fox 8. Every time we do graffiti or other bad stuff televisions broadcast it all(especially the grafitti) on tv. Im telling you when someone goes arould busting up mailboxes the next adrenilin high is seeing your work on t.v (grafitti) I almost think ignoring it would be better. When cops bust gangsters dont put up stats on tv "50,000 members nationwide. spreading across the country, scaring citizens of Lexington. Oh yea that almost makes me wana join a gang, Just kidding.

I'm sick and tired of illegals coming over here and committing crimes then being sent home/where ever, so they come back the next week and start all over again.

Couldn't we put a devise on them that can't be removed or destroyed by them but can be used to easily track them? Even be watch in their own country by their own government? Something has to be done!

Around 2003, there were 5 gangs at Lexington High School and they were comprised of Black, White, Hispanic and Cambodian - with the latter being the worst. That's according to a white gang member who wound up serving community service time for fighting. And he was a very intelligent, well-educated kid who knew the difference between right and wrong - but peer pressure in his neighborhood and at school helped him enter the gang world. I don't know what the gang situation is now - but this arrest is good. With this kind of crap going on in the schools, it's no wonder that per capita, Lexington has the largest number of home-schoolers in N.C.

Okay, wow there gang members.. but the news said they've been here since 1990. was there a major problem then? No! and there cambodians not mexicans. stupid watch it over. i don't see the problem.. you guys act like just because there gang members there all bad people. some of those people have families.. have jobs and have lives of there own - just like all of you out there. so stop judging them if you don't know the real story. i may not know what is going on - nor am i a gangster. but you got to realize that there people just like us. All Lexington ever want is publicity and more money.

Ritha, As is evident in your response that you didn't go to school for an education and you need to understand that Mexicans are NOT the only illegals coming over the southern borders. The issue is that most of the people involved with gangs are the ones who are getting a free ride. If we stop companies from hiring them (illegals) and the goverment from giving out Welfare, foodstamps, mediciad, unemployment,housing and social security like candy, the rest will have to get a job and earn a living and they won't have time to be in a gang. For the nay sayers out there, There will be plenty of jobs if we stated deporting 300,000 to 400,000 a week back to their original countries. There are alot of natural born people here on government subsidies that can and should be made to go to work and earn a living. If blind and Autistic people can work so can MOST other folks can too. People have had a free ride for way to long!

These people are not MEXICANS!!! Apparently most of the people that posted a comment here are illiterate or simply ignorant. The news report clearly stated that the gang was formed in California in the early 80s by Cambodian people. Cambodian people are from Cambodia which is located in ASIA not MEXICO. So therefore these people that got arrested are not Mexican. If people want to be smart-butts and say racist comments then you all better pay attention to the report and get your geographical knowledge right before speaking any nonsense bull crap.

Here is a great idea! Tell all your white people to go work the fields and all those jobs that "illegals" work so that way all "Illegals" can go back to their countries. Stop doing crack and living off from unemployment dude! you make our American people look bad for real.
