Neither will I. It may not be the fault of the establishment, but I can't help the way I feel. Too bad thugs ruin everything for all decent people.

You are right. If he was, he was the one who got shot anyway, not the shooter. I am just tired of people of all races and origins acting like hoodlums. Making it hard for law abiding citizens to go out and even have a meal in a sports bar. I quit going to the clubs because of that, and now it's filtering to non-night spots.

Its too bad to keep reading about places you grew up in that continue to fumble. I used to love to go to this place to eat, drink, and have a good time... Now its too darn scary to even set foot in there without the fear of getting shot or hurt in some way. Norcross needs to be cleaned up.

The odds are overwhelming that he is correct.

First of all I know the man killed and he is not an illegal alien but a very respected business owner from South America who had lived in this county legally for many, many years. He is a very kind and loving father and husband to a dear friend of mine.

Try reading the article....I lived in the area, and have worked on jimmy carter for 8yrs this place has changed DRAMATICALLY....huge inbflux of hispanics. It is a very very unsafe place now. I came to work the other day and half the parking lot was taped off and blood and spent shells everywhere. Crime here is rediculous. Gang signs everywhere. If you saw this area 8-10yrs ago and have not seen it since, you probably wouldnt believe it.

Showed them on the news this morning. They certainly looked hispanic.
And yes, in that part of the county, there's a pretty good chance they are illegal. Talk to anyone that works in law enforcement in that area. That's why most non-hispanics stay out of that area after dark.

they dont have exact stats but read the names of the gangs...you dont need feelings, just knowledge of the area.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office, in collaboration with the organization’s Project Safe Neighborhoods Anti-Gang Task Force, has targeted these two critical areas, along with other law enforcement jurisdictions, including the counties of Fulton, DeKalb, and Gwinnett and the cities of Atlanta, Doraville, Chamblee, Norcross, Lawrenceville, Duluth and Suwanee. Each of these counties and the cities within them is battling gangs and their associated dangers. Law enforcement agencies estimate that more than 3,000 gang members, belonging to approximately 50 different gangs, are active within the target area. Predominant groups include: SUR-13, 18th Street, Vatos Locos, Westside Vies, Northside Locos, LaRaza 13, MS-13, La Grande Familia (including Latin Kings, Malditos 13, Pachucos 21, Brownside Locos, Gangsta and Riverside Locos 13), Disciples, Bloods, Crips, Asian Bloods, Asian Crips, Puro Locos 14, Nuestra, and Raza Locos 23.

In the past two years, the U.S. Attorney’s Office has prosecuted more than 150
individuals for gang related crimes. Over 73% of these individuals were either from
the target areas or committed crimes within the areas. 70 of the federal defendants were charged under RICO (racketeering) laws, with

Making illegals, legal ONLY encourages more illegals. Including the families of the original illegals.

Do the math, 2 illegals, made legal, bring 10 illegal family members, made legal, bring 10 more and then each 10 more.. That's 1000 from 2 original illegals. Now they have kids every 10 years, 3 each, that's 1000 * 3 = 3000 + 3000 (40 years), that 6000 from just 2.

What happens, is illegals congragate and make area's (often, not always), unsafe or at least scary for others..

Take 12 million (which is REALLY 25 million) and do the math. 60-100 million more in < 50 years and by no account are they all Mexican... lots of nationailites, all trying to get here..

You can't say for sure that he was assuming that the shooter or the victim was illegal. He just stated the area had become a slum due to the illegal aliens.

I was responding to the second post by John in commerce. I neglected to quote him. Illegal Immigration is indeed a problem but it is simply wrong to convict every Hispanic in the news of it automatically.
