Ok there were a few things lost here. First, family lost a memeber, which is never good. Second, kids lost someone they counted on. Then of all things in SAFE Wilmington. It makes you think about going outside with your kids. Because some Jacka#$ with nothing better to do other than come by and shoot you. The LAPD needs start doing something to these damn thugs who are to lazy to work or whatever. Between the millions of child molesters in California and gang memebers, California needs to get their head of their a@#. Yes you politicians sitting on your high horses.

To all of you Cholos, losers, gangbangers, thugs, and dipsh)%s, need to go find a target range or hell buy one!

I am a resident of Compton and people should not believe the videos and hype. There are hard working families that live in Compton. You can be in any city and someone looks at you and they may shoot you. This is a tragic lost to his family and community, may he rest in peace.

Eteuati was a truck driver until a few years ago, when he was injured. Despite the injury, he remained positive.

***

A 32-year-old man "retired" from truck driving while he was in his 20s. How was he supporting himself and his wife? Was he selling drugs? These are uncomfortable questions but the police will be asking them as they seek to solve this sad crime.

Puncho Eteuati

3/12/98: Driving with suspended license, guilty.
12/3/01: Driving with suspended license, guilty.
7/5/02: Driving with suspended license, guilty.

No violent crimes or criminal activity in Los Angeles County. But these persistent problems with his driver's license make me question the "retired truck driver" story.

We just don't understand why someone would do this.Puncho Eteuati, You will forever be in our hearts and whoever did , i hope you know how much it hurts to have a love one taken away from you. what you sow is what you will reap. and to all our family members: i love you all and stay strong.God is with us, we should be happy that Puncho is now in a much better place.that's the place we are all aiming for.

To everyone with the negative comments. God Bless You!..that's what Puncho would have said to all of you. Puncho was a beloved member of our family and it hurts to see what people are capable of typing during such a difficult time for our family. If you people with the negatives knew Puncho, you wouldn't think of saying some of the stuff your saying about him. I guess you negative folks didn't have the priviledge of knowing this young man. R.I.P Puncho! Ia Manuia lou malaga uso.
