Does anyone know what the police or the school system is doing about the gang activity in Ripon? Alliance and the lumber yard have been tagged in recent months, and a picture posted on facebook of the cheer squad championship at Stevens Point has a (Ripon)male flashing a gang sign. His exact quote "gotta represent homes!!!!! lol".

Do we know if this is a serious threat to Ripon or just a bunch of kids acting tought? Is there really gang activity here? If so, what would you propose Ripon does about it?

If there are gangs in Fond du Lac and Oshkosh, then they are here. Some Northern Wis. communities never expected gangs, but they have had them for at least 10 yrs.
Don't need to wear horse blinders to figure that out.
Stop being so native!

For crying out loud, the person was just asking a question. Jump all over him/her just for asking a question, and then the rest of your post doesn't even make sense: "don't need to wear horse blinders to figure that out." What??? Stop being naive?(I think you mean naive, not native??) Someone is not naive just because they don't believe there's not gang presence in Ripon.

if youre so knowledgeable, then what gangs are here?? what's the name of the gangs? you really didn't answer the person's question; instead you just called him/her naive and blind.

or are you just posting around on here cuz you like to holler and act like everyone else is stupid?

There's dozens of sports to join, there's musical stuff, theater, arts, community service, get a part time job and save or spend some money, great parks, nature and hiking trails, Green lake, camping, ice fishing, rent a movie, read a book, become a big brother/big sister, and so on.

Illegal immigrants are in Ripon. I think gangs are in Ripon too. The two aren't necessarily related but there are undeniable connections. The economy hurt my property value. This town's biting off more than it can chew with Industrial Park, Sandmar Village, Boca Grande, artificial turf projects. Gangs don't go away, they grow. I'm not seeing any real recovery. People will begin to move. I'm not naive but that's life. It's all about money.

Wow - could you whine about anything else? And this has to be the most bizarre statement I have read on here:

"The two aren't necessarily related but there are undeniable connections."

Do you realize you contradicted yourself in your own rant? If there are undeniable connections, they are related.

What leads you to think there are gangs in Ripon? How do you know there are illegal immigrants in Ripon? I'm just asking questions; don't jump all over me and call me naive. That doesn't do your case any good.

Just because you have trouble following doesn't mean there is contradiction. One can be related and therefore connected. One be connected by certain points but not necessarily related.

Gang activity is not related to illegal immigration. To say so would be unfairly accusing all illegal immigrants of gang activity. Much of the gang activity committed, however, has been connected to the many illegal immigrants who chose to be gang members to surmount their struggles in societies they don't belong in.

Do my case any good? What case? Do any good for whom? You? Are you stirring chit again?? Go away before you turn this thread into a pit of snakes too.

"Connected by certain points but not necessarily related." Doesn't "connected" more or less mean "related"??

Don't call me stupid or say that I don't understand you.Grinch pointed out something that really seemed like a contradiction. It seems really contradictory to me, too. Insulting people doesn't make your writing clearer. And, the reason that people can't understand what you write is because it IS confusing and contradictory.

And, "Wally":

You didn't answer any questions. How do you know there are illegal immigrants in Ripon? How do you know there are gangs in Ripon?
