So before you put something down look at your situation. Believe me Whittier is no safe zone. My teenagers are not allowed in uptown after dark with all the fights, stabbings and muggings that have gone on. I don't blame the good people of Whittier or the Whittier PD. It is what it is. Low life member of society are everywhere.

And Whittier College has to be one of the safest places in the city-wonder where cheer mom's been driving?
you guys obviously weren't at the cheer competition a couple weeks ago... imagine if you will, all the cholos/cholas who didn't get killed/locked up. Now they're the coaches and team moms. It looked like the SFS swap meet.

Well why do you take the comment so personal. I know there is low lifes every where but it seems there is more in some places then others. Never did I say Whittier was the "safest" place to be. I guess you want to say Walnut Diamond Bar is the "safest" then right. So before you get all crazy and defensive, slow down and take a breather. And why would you have your teenages on wandering the streets after dark? are you one of those parents? If crimes are happening in Whittier or where ever it may be then why would you not blame the city. As long as we or the city lets things get out of control, well that is what it's going to be out of control. I did not mean to ruffle your feathers, just wanted to say what I felt. you know "free speach" Oh and by the way at competition's Walnut Diamond Bar can be a little shall we say Ghetto. Just an opinion. Don't get all crazy now.

I am going to give that a try. You never know what can happen if I get to the right person who will listen to my concerns.

I too am concerned, about sporting events in Pico Rivera, so many kids are by themselves, why don't you call the Parks where events are played and insist, that Don's and Wolverines change policy and have parents and child attend all games, at least the kid will feel safer.

My daughter is actually a Donna who cheers for the Pico Rivera Dons. We try hard to have a safe venue at Rivera Park. We actually take pride in it. So when you say you feel unsafe I took it personally and gave you a taste of what it feels like to have your league put down. Sorry but I just don't see the Redskin families on a higher morale level. We all try hard to take pride in our communities. Its a matter of perspective because Im sure the upscale community does look down on the entire area.

Get your kids to spend as much time studying as they do cheering(or playing sports) and all of our communities will be better places. Parents should spend the same amount of time and energy on school projects as they do attending practices and games. They shoud invest the same amount of money in tutors as they do in coaches. Equal time seems fair.

I did not know that the League owned the park. So you are not bothering me any. Apparently you know all the Redskin families. Bottom line Rivera park has way to many homies hanging out there and it's just not safe. you have your thoughts about Pico & I have mine. No bad blood is needed between our teams. I wish you guys good luck in Vegas have fun & be safe!

Hey Gigi, thanks for bringing Pico Boys into your post instead of saying streamland park. now when you search for pico boys in google this forum is the second result with the heading of "two teens shot in pico rivera". Great job. now you are hurting the league which whose job is to keep kids busy through baseball and away from gangs and this sort of activity. very counterproductive. please remove this comment.

Here we go again, blame someone else, what about the parents, how about having them take responcibillty for rising their kids, it's called parenting.
How about learning how to spell responsibility before thinking you are educated!!!
I don't think it's a parenting issue...Many times the older gang members are like beast waiting to recruit a youngster...It is SAD!!! Many recruiters threaten these young children, get them high, & make them do things out of fear....
But many families have a lifelong history of GANGSTERS in their lives & they educated these youngsters how to prove themselves to the enemy!!!

Wow!!! how did we not see it was the clothes that made theses idiots act like animals???
I have to apologize to all of the worthless parents who have kids out there committing crimes in Whittier and Pico. I should've known it was those pinche chinos. If you want your sons to act like humans keep them away from Asian store keepers!!!

Not a parenting issue? HUH? If not, then it's the kid's responsibility, period. Recruiters threaten them? Get them high? What?
"Do you wanna smoke a joint?"
"NO." Easy enough.
Recruiters, as you'd like to call them, aren't patrolling and randomly picking kids to join. You hang out with the WRONG crowd, make the wrong decision, period.
Families need to know what's going on with their kids. Until my son is 18 and has a job or is out on his own, he'll be responsible to let me know where he is 24 hours a day. Don't like it? Too bad. Too many parents now want to be "friends" with their kids.
Be a parent! It's not an easy job, it's DIFFICULT, and it's the MOST IMPORTANT job you have. Unfortunatley, there's a bunch of morons out there that think getting knocked up or knocking someone up makes them a parent. NOPE!

I agree with you 100% the parents makes the kid. you have to give your children rules and guidelines. A parent has to be a parent not a friend.
