Full story: Newsday 288

Sergio Argueta,of one of those idiotic "former" gang groups, but are just working a new angle, is quoted in the article saying "we have to quit treating these kids like 2nd class citizens.Stop sending them to new jails and old schools". Well moron,I attended the old junior high when the top and bottom floors were condemned,the windows rattled,and we froze in the winter there. And there were NO GANGS. You have it backwards. They shouldn't be treated like ANY class citizen and they should be deported. I'm paying for their education and the schools are among the lowest scorers on the Island. Latinos stole my town then ruined it. Blitter words? You bet. True words? You bet.

absolutely pathetic give them the death penalty these assholes do not deserve to breathe the air of good ppl like most of us. I would love to get them alone in a room. 2 on 1 i dont no care. these ppl are afraid of any real combat so they carry guns because they cannot fight like real men. I hope they enjoy the eternal fire of hell when they get their real punishment.

While "diversity" is to be embraced, the diversity is tearing the U.S. apart.

Nobody in high office is getting this.

I'm tired of paying for the "politically correct" minorities to have housing, checks, and child care and food stamps and the OK to breed on my dime.

Take a walk in Uniondale tonight and see how far you get.

funny all the racist seem to forget the slave traders, mafia, russians, triads, yakuzu, etc they do the jobs americans wont do is bs what they do is the job the americans wont for half the pay. you cant tell me a job that pays a living wage of 12-15.00 a hour for an american is the reason, they bring in the illegals to do it for 5-7.00 a hour and gladly. just because we americans know for a fact the rate of pay doesnt mean we dont want the jobs. and thats for the ones who even get paid to do the jobs. remember the slaves, the sweat shops etc.so dont go blaming lazy americans blame you cheap ass comapnies, not to mention, the north american union hence the borders not being closed down. but then you all prefer to live in ignorance so be it. keep right on just remember these words. we will not be known as the united states of america to much longer, when you get that state of the union speech informing you we are now the north american union remember it was a black woman, relative of a slave who informed you of whats really going on

you arent paying for shit check any welfare office and you will see more white people then any other minority out here also check out the prisons they are more filled with white people then any other race around but of course, you and the rest of your ilk have been duimbed down to think you are superior well how superior is this, the country has never been run by a minority race! tghe government is run by manily white people! the rich get richer while the middle class and poor are barely living in poverty! affirmative action was begun to make it look like the playing field was leveled but we all know better! and the reason your property taxes go down is because the minute a minority moves into the suburbs all of you white people begin running for the hills! selling your homes at any price you can to get the hell away from them! wonder why the city is now being turned into the richmans playground? because your race is tired of the suburbs and now want to take over the city! how many illegal immigrants do you have working for you? and unless your a animal or native american your not american either! but of course you all prefer to live in a land of lily white valleys, the only color you want to see is the green from leaves and browns of tree barks. that is until you get bored looking at one another then you will go running your asses to another island to attempt to capture some color to do the jobs you yourselves dont want to do like raise your kids, run your companies, clean your asses or your homes, cook your own food and the list goes on

When the cop's see us they get going. When they see a group of us they **** in their pants. They dare not touch us. Much easier to hassle whitey.

Very sad. Sure they kill each other but I don't want that garbage coming over here tomy community. Our government let's this crap in, close the border now.
Why is it that all the good kids want to be "hip-hop" producers. Can't they strive to do something that's productive and has a real purpose?
My idea: All young men 18-22, who are not in college, will be placed in a US Military Service. They will get a GED if they require a HS diploma. They will work in areas of the country that need relief (fighting brush fires in CA, Rebuilding in New Orleans etc.... Finally they will learn to respect this great country that allowded them or their families in to escape poverty and misery in some third world country. Make them aspire to help make america a better place and no tresemble the crap they came from!!!!!!
Great idea!!! But we would have to create the positive ideas, and programs you have suggested, or we could be considered a Facist Country....although we seem to be headed there now...so I guess your idea is the best!!! Great out of the box thinking!!!

One of the problems: "Freeport school officials declined to comment, citing student privacy laws".

I don't think gang activity should fall under this category when lives are at risk.

Gangs well I see a lot of folks don't know why these young teens join. As the story told, one of them hung out with an older guy to feel accepted. The point is the youth have no where to go. Little leauge, PBA clubs, youth centers and a host of activities for young people are not common anymore in poor or middles class neighborhoods. Money that was use to fund these activities are now being spend on wars and corruptions. So where do the young go for activities, gangs.
.
How about "kick the can", tag, wiffle ball, basketball. I didn't have no club memberships when I was growing up and I didn't resort to gangs or violence.

Re-instate the draft. Get these thugs off the streets NOW.
Agree!!! Let's re-instate the draft...but only for all of the able aged thugs,(I would hate to see all of our good young kids caught in the draft) and those in jail...since so many of them are violent, give them to the troubled middle-east...let them get a taste of what violence is all about.

It's so predictable how any story in this newspaper dealing with hispanics brings out all the LI redneck racists. If you got your wish and every hispanic left LI tomorrow, there wouldn't be any restaurants, vineyards, day care centers, hotels, hospitals, landscapers, grocery stores, construction, taxis, etc. available for you racists to use.

But I guess that just like Hitler and the Nazis, the only people allowed on LI are the blond haired, blue eyed members of the master race. Good luck with that you white trash scumbags.

You are a racist. Your Hitler remark is more than extreme and uncalled for. There are many communities on the North Shore of Long Island where many of its residents happen to have dark hair and eyes.

The article on gang violence: Is merely stating fact...
