Which gang affiliation are we talkng about here? Reporter failed to provide the facts! Let's use the name of the inductee then since the reporter omitted the name of the gang!

Let's see, his first name is; Issac? Hum. Which gang affilation would you surmise? Maybe a White Supremicist or Neo-Nazi? How about Norteno, Sureno, or an Asian Vietnamese gang? Maybe we sould also take a look at the Bloods or Crips!

The guy that killed Geo was a Northerner. He was completely psychotic and recently released from prison.

Geo did not deserve do die for any reason, he may not have totally walked on the right side of the law, but within a misalligned subculture that most of us fail to even acknowledge exists, he tried to institute justice, and morals, and compassion. He was killed for refusing to hurt someone who he did not believe was in the wrong.

The guy Issac who they are looking for is extremely dangerous. If you come in contact with him get away as fast as you can, get to a safe place and contact the police. He can come across as very personable at first but as soon as he becomes quiet, it is because the "voices" are talking to him, there is no way to know what he might do next. Please if you see this guy contact the police.

People just know a little of the story.... when your in a gang and you dont obey orders those are the consequences that you face. People dont know why these things happen to supposbly good people because we never hear the negative said of the story. Geo was a snitch and snitched on a couple of people to put them in jail and they had been looking for him for a while.. he thought he wouldnt get caught and eventually you get caught up.. I know Geo Personally and he wasn't up to no good... I also know the person who shot him but what ever happened happened and may Geo rest in peace.. and may the person that shot him turn himself in..

When u choose the action, u also choose the consequence..there is only so much that can be taken back n that can be forgiven.... Karma always comes back 10 times full. Sometimes the out come of ur actions & wrong doings can cause ur life in the end. R.I.P. to "all" our friends whom lost their life thru out these years. U are "all" very missed but never forgotten! It's all fun & games in the game & some take it way to serious & in the end it results to one lose'n their life over bunk ass bowl loads! Like Gio, Carl and 15 others over the last 10 yrs lost their life over bull shit reasons. Lose'n countless of friends over the last 10 years should give all of us the incentive to get clean & change your life around for the better, it's get'n serious and the bunk bowl loads has people go'n crazy. The funny thing about the whole situations is allot of people sit and say "he or she was my friend & miss him or her" and whatever but yet they're sit'n in the same room with the perpetrators that killed your them....

Bay Area u hit the nail on the head. I too know Gio I have been reading all the comments on the the articles about what has happened. I think it is very sad and may Gio rest in peace. Gio wasn't just some innocent guy the paper and news just repeat the stories that witness's give them.

as i understand it, Pittsburg is a really scary town. the former maintenance worker at my apartment complex talked a lot about his work at a previous apartment complex in Pittsburg.

he said there were a lot of murders and rapes there. he told another resident about the scary crimes that were common place in Pittsburg. given what appeared to be numerous prison tattoos, i think this maintenance guy had done prison time.

so i believe Pittsburg is a town to steer clear of.
