These people are vile. They need to be removed from society. They are worthless.
I have no idea if the captive was also a gang member but it just doesn't matter. I have no doubt that his life is still in danger.
I hope the bail is unobtainable otherwise Mexico is in their future.

They should all be taken out and shot! Why should the tax payers pay for their room and board for the rest of their worthless lives? Also, who owns the place where these rats lived in? The city should take the place away from the owner. I'm tired of these maggots!!

Again, I ask why we taxpayers should have to pay to house and send to trial these individuals. Sending them across the border wont do any good, they will be back. If we are gonna lock them up, then make it 3 meals of bread and water a day maybe some beans. No modern amenities, this is crazy, these criminals have their families suing LA and winning for mistreatment if we kill them or injure them ... and yet they can commit crime against ANYONE and get free room and board forever if not released back to commit more crime.

True American is wasting his or her time feeling sorry for the "poor" 15-year-old. Was this unspeakable deed his initiation into the glamorous vida loca? These kids know exactly what they are doing (and love it) as do the pond scum that pass themselves off as parents of the worthless parasites. Where are the parents of these young people anyway? Maybe they too should be held responsible for the damage perpetrated as the result of their "upbringing." The only thing I would change for the "15-year-old" (who should be named along with his parents) is a possibility of parole after 15 years- IF a psychiatric evaluation and parole board concur that he is no longer a risk and will hold a job and not assiciate with any of his former cohorts- all under court and parole board supervision. As for the sorry excuse for a 36-year-old female who got her jollies pandering to this mayhem, there must be a special place reserved in hell for adults who enable this stuff. It is a slap in the face to all of the brave young men and women who risk their lives in service of their country (many being Latinos, and most of whom are no wealthier then these gangbangers- just better people,) and to all of the kids who, although poor, hold honest jobs and even attend college. I doubt these punks are "illegals." This is home-grown stuff that we have tolerated for too long. If they were illegal, I doubt that Mexico would even take them back. Maybe their families should pay for their room and board in jail. Seems fair since they have ruined our valley.

These people responsible for terrorist acts should be put away for good. California or L.A county should prosecute them fully and send out a good message to all them stupid gangsters trying to do or plan similar stuff. Its hard to believe that some people do not know and appreciate what we have in the United states of america.

Immigration is wonderful. My great grandma immigrated from Italy in 1908. Its pretty moronic to blame everything on immigration. These people are criminals and should be punished as such. How do you know they are immigrants??? Whats your last name? I know its not up. The white man stole this country fair and square from the indians. Remember?

This is sad, it will cost millions of dollars on taxpayers if they go for life..including the 15 year older..guess what a nice kilowatt of electricity is what $2 to $3 top $5..I say we buzz them with a nice kilowatt and spend $5 for electricity and a union worker for half an hour $50..that's a total cost of $55 and guess what with a few of those examples..I see how this low life beaners will react and get a Friggin life.

Leave these people alone. This is perfectly acceptable behaviour in their country of origin and heritage. Stop trying to de-spot a leopard. You are being racist!!!

Let me get this straight. They are also either illegal aliens or their offsprings, right? Lol. Well, America, You brought this down to yourselves in the first place for the purpose of cheaper labor costs. The simple 'Law of Universe' states that there will always be a corresponding REACTION(effect) to an ACTION(cause). Disregard it at your own peril.

America was founded by the systematic elimination of a whole race of people. Its funny to read these posts from the holier then thou american hypocrites. Yes moron, kidnapping is normal and acceptable in other countries. Do any of you people ever travel outside of the US? I really don't think so. If you did you would not be so ignorant about other cultures. The arrogance of americans is as out of control as these criminal scums.

Unless Los Angeles addresses the gang problem, soon Los Angeles will have the same kidnapping crime spree that is occurring in Mexico and the other "Latin" countries where these gangs spring from. Tony Villar (the mayor) is allowing the Mexican gangs to recruit illegals from Mexico to suit his political purposes (more Mexicans, more votes!) and doesn't care if murder and crime in Los Angeles escalates, as long as he can get all the women he wants along with more political power. Betcha those arrested gangbangers are illegals! So much for your "sanctuary city" Mr. Mayor, or Tony!

So, what's your point? Are you implying that kidnapping is an acceptable social behavior?
