Hey Morris, perhaps things are changing with these
press releases .. The deceased, who was in an alley near 6th St, was identified by name (Galacio Ramirez).. What is this stuff about being 2.6 miles from the Belmont Pier. This is the second gang related shooting in the last week.

What person in their right mind would attend the big outdoor dance this Saturday eveing on 7th St/Pine .. that must be close to the 2.6 mile range of the Belmont Pier..LOL

Today's standardized test question:

A drive-by shooter in a grey Honda Civic leaves Belmont Shore at 10 pm, driving west at 40 mph. A Blue Line train heads south from Watts at 10:30 pm, traveling at 25 mph. A suspected gang member gets off the train at Pacific Coast Highway and walks toward the nearest medical marijuana store. What time will the drive-by shooting take place?

Top of the evening to you, Landlord. I don't know what this 2.5 miles business is about. I am stumped also.

I have a feeling things will get ugly tonight at that dance. Sadly, Murphy's Law will show itself. But one more thing, I wonder if our friend the real estate guy will go to this dance. LOL. ;-)

Gdmng Morris -- Sleepy or was it Ghost, who was unable to attend the dance party. Wonder how it went, what a waste of resources, extra cops, clean up all of the bullshit that goes with it. There will be some puff piece in the PT extolling the cumunity coming together in this love fest. Plans to do it again next year.

Another murder this weekend at all places a trailer park in the vicinity of 26th & Atlantic, a 26 year old gan membert (Gustavo) stabbed his common laws wife after the baptismal of their three kids. He's feared on the run to Mexico. Oh, among his many tattoos is one of Compton.

Type I crimes (murder, aggravated assault, armed robberies) way up in Long Beach. Plus scumbags in every neighborhood and roaming freely, even armed robberies of people strolling in Belmont Shore. No BS, thinking of moving to Irvine, but it's too damn expensive, even for the smallest postage stamp condo. All we can do is hunker down at this point.

He wasnt an EBTer, Nobody called him "sleepy" "flaco" or "ghost". He wasnt even 21. There's nothing to "LOL" to, I hope none of you ever go through what his family is going through and stop judging him when none of you knew him. This is so sad to read, if any of you ever lose someone you love I hope u don't have to read stupid comments like the ones posted above.

The article mentioned gang related. What was he doing in an alley late at night. Did he shave his head. Seriously, tell us something about him.

Listen up, you. This guy was not going to be an engineer or perform open-heart surgery.
All he would have done was father more kids that us taxpayers got to support.

Now run along and show respect for your betters.
