They have the parade ending at the park cause Arturo Sanchez started it from alondra and ending at the park. So before people start opening there mouth asking and giving dumb comments about the parade do a little research on the it.

This is excellent news. The Norwalk Sheriffs did there job correctly. The Norwalk Sheriffs should eliminate as many of these gang member Mexican punks as legally possible. The only good Norwalk Mexican gang member, is a dead one...

Been living in the area for more then 25 years attending the parade ever since I can remember..it is so sad that some idiot decides to carry a loaded gun around kids and there families...the kids wait for this event every year it is not fair for them to have this parade canceled because of actions like this...The parade gets better every year these kids look foward to it...

This is a illegal Mexican parade...Plan and simple. Paid for by the legal, hard working American tax payers of Norwalk. Filthy Mexicans have devastated Norwalk in numerous ways. This is just one example. Norwalk has evolved into a pure high crime rate cesspool, thanks to the infestation of Mexicans. This is the pure truth, and we know it. Norwalk in the 1970's was a decent place to call home. It had a low crime rate and a majority (86%) of White People living here. This was a safe and clean town to grow-up in as a kid in the 1970's, as a kid. Norwalk now resembles a third-world country (Mexico). What a F-ing shame. GOD BLESS THE NORWALK SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT. The only good Norwalk Mexican gang Member, is a dead one.

Did anybody see what happened? the gun never left the kids pocket. Sheriffs run him over as he is attempting to run away, The back of his head hits the hood of the squad car. The kid gets up and starts running again sheriffs aim and fire. The kids hits the ground like if he was mortally wounded. Sheriffs run overthere kick the kid in the head and handcuff him. Again the gun never left the kids pocket, the kid was running away and gets shot in the back. What danger were the sheriffs in? There are a lot of questions here that need to be answered and i feel the sheriffs dept needs to start talking. Sloppy sheriffs work.

People are saying the kid didnt even take the gun out of his pocket...but why take a gun to an event where you knw there is cops everywhere...especially if your a "gangster.." Not a good idea...I take my kids every year just to think how many children could have been hurt ..gives me the chills...I dont think it has anything to do with Mexicans taking over Norwalk like some are saying...thats just going to another level ...it doesnt matter what you are or where you live...Mexicas Blacks Whites all have bad people..so please lets not go there...And for the record No I am not Mexican I just dont think its right for others to blame everyone else for one persons actions..

I agree with you about eliminating gang members to keep our streets safe. But to say something like that, makes you sound like a horrible ignorant racist.

I agree. My kids partipate every year, but thank God we were unable to do so this year. Im not sure Ill let them march next year though. Its such a shame that our Norwalk community is trying to do a positive thing and some low-lifes ruin it for the rest of us. I hope things get better in our community.

Yo Critic...you sound like a Synic, you got to get with it and stop smokin' dat chronic. The only thing that would be considered a little sloppy in this incident was those bad-ass Norwalk Deputies didn't kill that fool!!!!

I agree on one thing, There far to many people disrespecting each other. As far as pointing fingers at a certain group or race. I beleive their are all races that cause trouble for all, not just Mexicans, Every race has their problems every race has their gangs. I've been here for 7 gen. and it's quite instersting how every creed, race, comes to America and then points fingers at every other race that comes here thinking they have rights to put down another races. These is America folks,Dont' blame the race or creed, blame the goverment, nows the clown who should be blamed for alot of things...Don't you agree...

I saw the gang member running with a gun. If I were a cop I would have done the same thing. Just imagine all the kids and Inocent people in the park. If that gangmember shoot a Inocent civilian or child than it would be ok with the public. The deputies prevented a bad thing from happening. Norwalk deputies need a pat on the back.

Sloppy police work is definetly what that was to open fire in a park full of kids. There were six shots total all from deputies what if the kid had shot back? Bullet entry holes don't lie and i believe that is unethical to shoot someone in the back. The norwalk sheriffs dept are a gang themselves and would do anything to protect their own. Its funny how the sheriffs dept tried to confiscate all the videos that were recording the incident hmmm i wonder why?(tactical tommy) you sound like a dirty pig and if that was one of your own family members that got lit up, im pretty sure you would have a different opinion. I think the kid was wrong for taking the gun but i dont think he should die for making a mistake.(I saw it)wow i talked to 20 people who seen the whole thing, i even seen the video and never seen a gun. What you might have seen was the gangmember holding his pants up while he was running. i really hope these pigs dont get away with,enough is enough....

I thought it was funny how the sheriff were mad cause they know they messed up because by the time I got there of course there were a lot eye witnesses they were really mad and upset because he didn't pull out a gun to the sheriff and of course the sheriff won't admit there wrongs it just sucks it ended that way I'm not sayin it was wrong stopping him if he was suspicious I just think they shouldn't have to shoot the kid God knows how many if he didnt point a gun to them it just not right.
