Once again I'll make the call... Round up all the gang members, throw them in jail at their own or their family's own expense! Don't let them out! What a great use for Guantanamo!

why don't we stop incarcerating these scum bags & start saving lives by donating the organs of anyone that commits a capital crime. we would be helping the worthy, & taking care of a very low group of animals that kill children, police, women, and as well as the elderly for nothing. for nothing!

I cant imagine raising a child for 16+ years, just to burry him/her because some guy was insecure enough to carry a gun when he left the house, & decided to confront a kid on a porch in the middle of the night.

wow...how sad is that...

Johnny Bravo and other idiots: This is NOT in the City of LA so the Council and Mayor have nothing to do with this one -- ask their local officials, reputed to be tied to the Mexican Mafia, and the DA Steve Cooley, who promised to investigate and clean up all 8 of these cities just south of LA City (Bell, Lynwood, Cudahy, etc.).

But not having any idea what you're talking about doesn't prevent most of the commenters on this Daily News blog from shooting their mouths off -- of course, the DN editorial staff is often the same and set the pace, especially when it comes to provincialism to do with gangs and tranportation.

This is the result of illegal immigration. Poor, uneducated people breeding MORE poor, uneducated people. L.A. already looks like Mexico. Everyone of them should be rounded up if they're not here legally, and sent back. We should then SEAL our borders and put a 100% into patroling them. If you really think about it, we have been invaded which is an act of war. If you visit the website of WWW.MEXIKA.ORG you'll understand why they're doing this. Please join numbersusa.com and help put an end to this disaster.

I've taken a look at both websites you mentioned and I agree with you 100%.

If we follow the same course that the pro-hispanic website offers, the majority of us should go claim England, Germany, France, etc.! Our relatives were there first! I especially found the picture on their website of Ronald Reagan with the disgusting phrase below it in horrifically bad taste. President Reagan was one of the best presidents we've had in the last 100 years.

Stop ALL immigration NOW! Stop ALL benefits to illegal aliens NOW! DEPORT THEM ALL NOW!

We don't have a juvenile crime epedimic. Juvenile crime is at all-time low. That's the reason why the state of California is closing is youth prisons. Here's a solution: If this was my kid, what would we do? Send him to Iraq? When is the last time any of you have taken the time to volunteer at a nonprofit organization to mentor one child. It takes a village, and that's not a cliche.

As many have said, we can't arrest our way out of this situation. We need to target the 3 to 6 percent of gang members who perpetrate 60 percent of the city's gang crime and lock them up. But we also need to invest in prevention and intervention for those young people who are living in gang-infested communities. These kids, most of whom will never join a gang, sometimes have no choice but to call themselves gang members for fear of retribution.

We are in the midst of a civil war. The only strange part is the enemy is shooting us and we're not firing back.

When is the violence going to stop? You can not sit on your front steps without the fear of being killed.
You can not walk the streets without wondering will you make it home due to some gang member wanting to shed blood.
These gang members are nothing but mad dogs that have tasted blood and want to kill in cold blood.
When are the City officials going to say that is enough, we are not going to take it anymore?
Each life is important and no one has the right to take it away just because.
Gangs are cowards because they kill innocent people for no reason, people that have no defense against them. Southern California has become a city were gangs are in control and they just randomly shed blood.
We the people are not safe from these animals. Any one in a gang should be rounded up, put in prison for all there life. They live by the sword therefore they should be treated and punished by the sword.
