Heard the shot and then saw the start of the vehicle chase... The Rican Cockroaches have now brought their filth into my neighborhood. Looks like I will be moving out sooner rather than later. Pitiful!

1st & foremost your racial comments should be kept to yourself! It wasn't brought to your neighborhood, the driver (who happened to be WHITE) was trying to get away! Violence, Crime, Hate, Ignorance & Hypocrisy effect everyone, regardless of race, age & social status!! The young hispanic man (who was the victim) is recovering from surgery & is expected to recover, although he will live with a bullet lodged in his neck! Next time, try thinking about others before posting your vicious, simple minded opinions! Oh & for the record, I am white.

I stick by my simple minded statement....
Trying to get away?????????? Did you read the story? They met at a location and it is quite obvious that their intention was no good. They tried to get away after they ended up on the wrong side of the gun. I would also like to know, how you know the driver was white? Please enlighten me!

"The young hispanic man (who was the victim) is recovering from surgery & is expected to recover, although he will live with a bullet lodged in his neck!" - Well then, maybe next time the THUG will think twice before he acts on his aggression. NO SYMPATHY FOR THIS THUG! My only wish is that they would have all finished each other off.

The only victims here are the residents!

Yes, I read the article. It doesn't state all the facts nor does it say the "victim" was up 2 "no good", as U put it. Regardless of what U may have read, U weren't there & except for U reading a few paragraphs from a newspaper article, U have NO right 2 spew your racial slurs & hatred. I will definitely say a prayer for U, it is really sad that people still live in ignorance & hatred! U don't have all the facts, U don't know the circumstances or the situation & the little bit of info that U do have comes from reading a few lines of your local newspaper or watched a 3 minute news brief! Hmmm sounds 2 me like U R an expert & your qualified 2 enlighten the world with your opinion! "Not", just remember U offend & hurt many people with your choice of words! God Bless U & Hopefully soften your heart! Enjoy your day

I live right there and talked to detectives based on what I witnessed. So again, I stick to my original statement. And instead of assuming someone is white, hispanic or black based on thier name alone is rather shallow. Maybe you should enlighten yourself a little, for I am fed up with the FILTH and you seem to find peace with it. GET REAL!

Sorry, but again U seem 2 find peace with making derogatory comments towards a whole race of people based on ur limited knowledge of an incident. As far as assuming anything, whether color or race, I haven't. "Shallow" as U put it, Hmmm, the whole problem started with ur Shallow, narrow minded comment " Rican Cockroaches", that's shallow. And filth comes in every race, every age & everywhere. I read the papers & watch the news & C several stories of white ppl committing horrible crimes, living in filth & squalor, selling/ using drugs, corruption, etc. But can I sit back & judge or make insulting remarks towards a specific ethnic group based on what info I have gather through the media & local law enforcement? No it isn't my job or my right. As far as facts R concerned, I don't think U have enough of them to make the kind of remarks U have been. But as I continue 2 read ur remarks, it is obvious that U have issue's & I am not going 2 argue with U about them. Everyone is entitled 2 their opinion & most people can express their opinions respectfully & tactfully, I am sorry that U choose not 2. Have a Blessed day & try 2 remember that their is good & bad in everyone, choose what U wanna focus on & C in people!!
