There were at least five murders and two other shootings of young people in Maywood in the last week or so.

If we don't start protecting our children soon there will be none left to protect.

Has anyone considered forming a citizens committee to patrol our streets with cell phones, if nothing else? The more eyes watching, the better the chance of stopping some of the killing.

If we don't take action to save our children, who's going to?

5 dead in less than two weeks...11 murders and its only August...20 is not to far away...remember that year? Wow Chief Williams is doing a bang up job...dismantling the Task Force to it a former shell of it's self a year ago. Last year at this time the task force created and run by a real cop's cop...D/C BUE recovered 37 guns in one month!...no murders for the entire summer! Violent crime down over 50%! While Chief Williams sat in the shadows wondering how to discipline her rank and file and to take anonyomous complaints slipped under her door, and to worsen moral. She drove out Bue who simply could no longer work with the fraud of a chief when she started to try to take credit for his crime reducing initiatives. The vote of no confidence from every member of the department minus 2 or 3 pathetic ass kissers did nothing to sway the village idiots...I mean elders to get rid of her. Folks Sh#t rolls from the top down and she is the shining turd of Maywood. Take a bow Elvira. How does it feel to be the worst chief in a village with a reputation of appointing some of the most ineffective, incompetent chiefs around. Well that's one achievment nobody can take from you. Pat yourself on your back with blood of Maywood.

I think that it is terrible for the gangs to take over a small surburb like maywood, i took my family away from maywood,and i thank GOD that i did.The community has to do something about this situation, if they don't,they are going to loose all of the innocent children in maywood.The men in maywood need to take a stand. they will be highly appreciated,if they do.

You people who have picked up and moved out of Maywood, should not be so critical about those who are still here. You didn't do anything when you lived here or did you? Do you know that most everyone who is now in Maywood, did not grow up there (born & raised). I'll tell you where they can start. Get rid of the liquor stores. If they pass a law that prohibits the sale of liquor in Maywood you will see a big change.

By your speech you are obviously under the influence of something right now. It doesn't make much sense to live in a community where folks are not free to go to and fro because they are in fear of being harmed just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I'm 53 years old and I remember when there were no liquor stores in Maywood and it was a whole lot safer and better than what it is now. Let them go to another neighborhood to get liquor. Folks are tired of going to the store and being stopped by someone wanting change on a "forty". The only ones who will be upset over liquor stores being banned are those who spend most of their time getting high.

Tony, you asked what the sale of liquor has to do with people killing people? Well just weeks ago a guy ran over his ex-girlfriend and her eleven year old son, and he was liquored up. If the town is kept dry, you will see a big change. You can't understand it because you're probably are too high or liquored up to realize it. Get sober and face life as it is. Stop hiding behind weed, liquor, and whatever else it is that gives you the courage to get up everyday. I know, because I've been there. Make Christ your Savior!

Cracker, what are you so angry about? What will it accomplish by anyone taking the life of another. Tell us what is the purpose? Is your life going to be better, will you have peace, will it make you a better man, will it make you feel that you've contributed a great service to the community for such a destructive act? What exactly will you have accomplished by committing a murderous act? Tell me please!

How about we parents, and other guardians of children,try something new, PARENTING. Stop blaming any and everyone for you not monitoring your children. I know kids need there freedom, but it is not like it was when some of us were young. I don't feel this will solve all of the problems that exist but it might save a few lives, if parents begin to keep thier children, teenagers and young adults closer to them. I know you feel that they are old enough, but in todays time what is old enough?

grew up in L.A... left in 1978 because i knew the unwashed tide of illegals were coming. it was getting bad even then. now that my parents are deceased i have no further reaon or desire to visit my birthplace,childhood home. it's so said to see california being destroyed. I used to hope it could be stopped-border closed,illegals deported. take over is almost complete. but i'ts just like a house with termites. they eat the wooden parts of a house's foundation first. and if not stopped, eventually the whole house collapses in on itself...God bless America

These fellas are walking around with their pants hanging off. The girls are looking like hookers and the parents allow this foolishness. all I see is women driving men around and the men are in
the passenger seat rolling blunts. I must tell you
sistas that you are the most beautiful creatures on earth. But, you talk entirely too much and dress like a young lady should. Fellas, be men and
stop killing your brothers. Be a father to your children, and leave the gangbanging alone. A lot of people died for our freedoms and we have disgraced them!

I grew up in Maywood, and it's saddens me greatly to even hear of the news of Maywood's crime, it simply makes me sick to my stomach. 1st, the parents need to take control of their children, 2nd we need to provide the teens of Maywood some activities to take part in. Maywood has no revenue, so you have crazy high taxes, and horrible school systems. Now, I also feel as if the cops could do a better job at controlling the gangs in Maywood. Anyone that knows Maywood, knows what gang controls what area, so you gotta start there. Lock their asses up, everytime you see them hanging on the corners. I'm sure their lil drug money will run out before the police reports will. Make them pay and/or do commmunity service, the worse thing yoiu can take from any person, is their freedom. Maywood needs stiffer penalties for the simple crime makers. Maywood police need to do more road side safety checks, and pull over more gangbangers driving. How do you think their carry the guns. I'm sure if u pull over a car with 4 or 5 thugs with their hats cocked to the side, you will net a good catch!!

Well maybe they need to call on the federal government, and consider Maywood under a state of emergency, but nevertheless, something has to be done!

That probably would be better with the national Guard taking over or the State Police

I support the changes you want to see but, that was an ignorant statement.
