I wonder if Richie Alexander and Nathan Carlson's cheerleader girlfriends and the TC cheer squad attended the hearing. It is disgusting that these boys are charged with a henious hate crime and they date the most popular girls on the Temple City cheer squad. These girls spend countless hours on my space professioning their love and loyalty to these boys. What is happening in Temple City and what is the school doing to hold these cheerleaders to a morale standard that represents the community and the school with dignity and respect??

How about those "Sock on Mexican" attacks in Pasadena? I haven't read that any blacks have been charged with a hate crime for singling out Latinos to be randomly attacked hundreds of times in the past two years.

http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story...

The Pasadena Star news remains tight lipped on the story. What's the double standard here. Does the Pasadena Star News/SGV Tribune hate Latinos and favor Blacks?

Any crime is a hate crime, not just when the victim is black. Blacks commit racial crimes all the time, lately against Latinos, but always get a slap on the wrist while anyone that as much as looks at them wrong gets a hate crime attached to their charge. What a joke.

The double standard that blacks enjoy here in America is ridiculous. That's why people don't want to live around them. They think they can get away with anything and are free to roam, and they are right to an extent. There are a lot of good black people but this hypocrisy breeds resentment.

I'm curious if there are any blacks or latinos that know what is going on with those SOM attacks in Pasadena. Is it just black on brown or is there some of it going the other way that is not being reported? Racism sucks, I don't know why our papers keep stirring up tension with these stories.

Hey Justin maybe you should read the LA County Superior Court Complaint and felony arrest warrant for these guys it is public record. They are charged with stabbing and robbing tow other victims these attacks took place on April 24th and April 30th in Arcadia and the Carls Jr. attack on May 25th. Perhaps you need to look up the definition of hate in the dictionary and while you are at it look up the "loser" and 'Bad people" too I am sure you will find their names there. You do not just get caught up in a big mess three times that is a choice!!!!

Ever notice that our local newspapers; the Pasadena Star News, SGV Tribune, Whittier Daily News and all the other little Tribune offshoots always seem to be out of touch with the SGV community. It always seems like they are reporting on our local issues from an out of touch liberal "West Side" perspective.

These socialists are always advocating to have homeless shelters and halfway houses built in our communities like we should be ok with that or feel guilty. The feel good homeless pieces are the most ridiculous of all as nobody wants this around here. It almost seems like they would like to see low income mixed use housing apartments on every other block in La Canada, Sierra Madre and on the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena.

Although it is also part of the Tribune monopoly in So Cal, the LA Times does a much better job than all three of these papers combined for the SGV region. They’ve cleaned up recently. Dump your subscriptions to our three local newspapers until they clean up their act and just stick with the LA Times and local blogs.

One more thing, the tabloid headlines these papers are using lately are in many cases found to be erroneous. The articles are up for one day and taken down the next leaving greusome headlines on the net aboout the SGV. And the way these papers have fanned the flames of racial conflict in our communities with these stories to sell more papers is a disservice to everyone.

Just to be clear this was a horrible hate crime and the perps deserve serious jail time.

Apparently the OC, particularly Irvine, has some genuine discrimination going on but no one is addressing it.

No. These local papers report it from an affluent conservative Pasadena perspective. The editorial page reads like a John Birch page. It just feels like the liberal west side because they're kind of snobby. The LA Times is more liberal than the SGV news.

First of all, who are you to judge the entire cheerleading squad at Temple City high school based on two girls relationships? Second of all, the key word is that they are "their relationships" and not anyone elses which means that whatever they choose to do in their own time with whomever they choose is up to them and does not put up a standard for the rest of the school. These hate crimes have hit home for a lot of students here at the high school and i think its ridiculous when people who arent even involved make themselves that way. Most of the girls on the cheer squad have done their part in trying to put a good face back on this school and if you knew them well enough to judge them the way you have then you would be well aware of that. If you're gonna be so judgemental then be ready to have it dished back out to you and worry about your own problems before you worry about ours. Temple City is doing just fine thank you and we would appreciate it if you would keep your thoughts to yourself whether they are accurate or completely erroneous such as the one you have decided to share with the world. Thanks and have a nice day.

What is even more disgusting is your attitude towards the situation. 2 young men (brothers) minding their own business and not bothering anyone, become the target of some juvenile delinquents based solely on their skin tone.Not only did they verbally attack and demean them,But when the two young brothers try to leave without further confrontation, These hoodlums attack them physically,stabbing one of them in the back as he walked away.
Sounds pretty hateful if you ask me. I hope they throw the book at those guys. I think they should also charge the parents, hate like that doesn't develop overnight.

Saint Paul has had its share of seemingly racial motivated crimes just west of downtown. So have Minneapolis, north and south of downtown.
