So long punks,. I hope you live long in prison and suffer greatly. Was it worth it? Just how much of a big shot are you now?

Gang members are attracted to Long Beach for multiple reasons, but the irony is that if you're caught and tried, you're always found guilty. Why don't you learn and take your gang stuff to a place where no one will catch you. Lancaster maybe? Moreno Valley? Just go.

We can all only hope they are all GANG raped often and with prison-like vigor in their new surroundings.

I attended most of the hearings leading up to this day. I knew Jonathan personally and am proud to have called him friend. I would like to thank Lachandra Wilkerson, Bryan McMahon and Patrick O'Dowd. These law enforcement professionals brought closure for Mr. Fernandez's family. Thank you to the witnesses who bravely testified to what they witnessed. But most of all, thank you to members of both juries and the alternates for enduring these three weeks. Your wisdom and fairness brought us the day and outcome we have waited for. It is time for the average citizen everywhere to take and stand to not be intimidated by street gangs. Do the right thing! Come forward if you have information. Take our neighborhoods back! Long Beach should be for families. Places like Pelican Bay, New Folsom, Calipatria, and San Quintin are more suited for the likes of Babie Insane Crips!

Great work on behalf of the Long Beach PD Detectives and prosecutors who have spent many hard working hours on this case to bring justice to the family's and to make the streets of Long Beach a little safer. Det Pat O'Dowd did a great job on this case and needs to be commended for his hard work!!!

I never had an opportunity to meet this young man which I hate these guys for, but I know that like his father he could have only been an incredibly wonderful person. Im happy that Jonathan, his family, and the other victims and their families, finally have some retribution and the closest thing to justice thats legal in our country. These dirt bags robbed this beautiful young man and his family the opportunity to see all of his dreams and goals he had planned for his life come true. I pray that where they are going, they will become a victim of all the bad things that goes on behind prison walls. I hope they get the max and then the watch!!! Gone but never forgotten... RIP Jonathan

Good riddance. I remember this being the first thing i saw in a newspaper stand at the Long Beach airport after returning from new year celebrations in San Francisco. It made me think great i come back home to another tragedy. Kinda ruined the start of the year for the city.

At least their going away for along long time. Hopefully to never see or feel freedom again. Freedom isn't free, And it sure shouldn't be for people like these 3 punks.

Maim them all, maim all the gangsters. Citizen who lives in fear, time to put the fear into the gangmembers and kill them all, you know who they are. Sneak up to them and do what they would do to you when they feel like it.

2 outta 3 of these monsters were sentenced yesterday. Glenn Cox got 4 life terms and Christopher Weddle got life + 125 years to life. Desmond's fate is soon to be announced. During the heartbreaking statements from Jonathans family, none of these monsters showed any remorse or compassion and still have not manned up and taken responsibility for what they've done. I wish we could throw all 3 of these animals into a pit full of hungry sharks and watch the feeding frenzy. Prison is just not good enough.

Well.... desmond received the same as his brother but the sad part about everything that a lot of people don't care about is desmond never shot anyone!!!! Chris did fire off a few shots but his bullets never killd anyone so the attempeted murder charges are well understood! But desmond..... he got wind of what happened an went to get his brother. While all where down he was standing si that's how he was seen an accused then later on his brother confessed to all so he can get desmond off but desmond shared a close bond with chris so he THOUGHT he was helping by not telling the truth on his own end as well as him being a lil stupid when he got out the first time he braged about being there...... very stupid I might add considering the fact that the LBPD had nothing to stick to desmond..... anywho instead of hoping for the worst for the boys pray for them. Seriously 1 should not b in there. Oh and I am there family if u wonder.

To the family of the slain boy, my sympathies.

To the family that raised a violent, socialy unacceptable psycopathic gang member, kepp in mind that your kid will be brutaly raped and beaten as soon as he enters prison. Pry sold as new meat until the 'newness' leaves his rear-end. He will waste his life in prison.

Desmond Weddle got what he deserves. He is the actual shooter of Jonathan Fernandez.

Well at least your family lives! What about the dead victim, what about his parents, uncles, cousins, friends, siblings, what about anyone who loved him, After a situation like this there is always some innocent little goodie two shoes who was just trying to get his brother or save him! Well no one in your dysfunctional family tried to help these thugs before they murdered someone! So don't expect prayers you can expect relief and joy , and u enjoy seeing the little bastards on visiting day!
