They are DEAD Gang Bangers....You like them alive, living next door to you and your family? Possibly one of their stray bullets striking your children? A mistake in identity (Happens all the time, dumb Bangers) hitting your loved one? Dead Gang Bangers are good Bangers!!!!!!!

This means Salinas is on pace for 120 homocides in 2009. Good for us. Especially since violent crime is decreasing throughout the rest of the United States. Let's Bowl/Fast/Knit/Sneeze for Peace.

It is now a prerequisite that you weep during a press conference as did the enigmatic Sgt. Don Gline. That will strike free into the thousands of gang bangers in Salinas. First Dennis Donohue cries at every press conference now, on a subject as serious as murder, the police department head of investigations is crying.

McSorely looks horrible and everyone knows she is useless in the department. During the press conference they seemed hard pressed to answer the HOW MANY SOLVED question or the question on why the public is given so litle information on other crimes, like the armed robberies of Nob Hill twice, both with a gun walking right in the front door during store hours as though they know there are no South Salinas officers, the robbery of Super Max on West Alisal five times, the most recent last week. The robbery of Longs on Laurel, armed.

None of this information is being reported in the paper, on the SalinasPD.com website press page, or on www.crimereports.com . Why? Information is power, you can't ask the public to help and deprive them of information and don't lie about this being operational details.

Also Cassie McSorely lied when she said Operation Impact only just ended. It ended with SO and CHP cooperation months ago, there is no Operation Impact and she should be held accountable for telling the public false information. Again don't feed the public the lie that this is sensitive operational information. Anyone in earhot of a beat cop at Starbucks can pick this information up.

The gangs are outperforming Salinas PD because Salinas PD has a leadership void, no mission, no plan, and next to no intelligence, based on the press conference.

It is a terrible day for this community and for Salinas in particular.

Absolutely embarassing and if anyone is expecting the news to keep you posted they are all broke.

It looks to me as if the Salinas P.D. is sitting back and letting the Gang Bangers kill themselves off. One by one and staying out of the action. Not a bad plan, except if you own property here, your value is dropping because of all the violence and you and your loved ones could catch a stray bullet anytime. The Bangers aren't known for their accuracy with a gun unless it is in your face.

Count me in. We can make things look like we want them to look, start a war and let them go at it. We may have 50-100 dead Bangers when we are done. They are looking for any reason to get their first kill.

according to several letters sent out by PD and New Org.....they had a special meeting to agree on downplaying the crime. I know of a person whom works at KSBW and she informed me that they had to sign agreements last week to not publicize any crime unless approved by mgmt and PD

Someone said that illegal aliens cost the u.s. billions of dollars. I'd like to say that first of all your an ignorant bastard. Second, I'd like to add that their are many jobs out there that the average American will not take or do. Look at your local Asian, Italian, Indian, Middle Eastern, American, and Fast Food Restaurants. Grocery Stores, Agriculture, and especially 90% of our hard labor jobs like construction. They do all that, they build our cities. So before you speak look at the history of your city, where your food comes from, etc. If no immigrants, who would take these jobs for what they pay? not your spoiled American, and with that prices of all things will rise.

I am tired of "Mexican Terrorists" other killing "Mexican Terrorists" giving our city a bad reputation, bring our home values down because of all the Gang Banger shootings and robbing people on the streets. Mexicans shooting other Mexicans from cars, "Mexican Terrorists" shooting the wrong person, an innocent by stander. Yes, we are all tired of "Mexican Terrorists" destroying our tourism business and our city. If you don't like it change your "Terrorists" attitude or go home and don't come back!

Why don't you go and kill on of your brothers and make yourself useful. When you grow up you will ask yourself, "Why was I a Mexican Terrorist?"as you look out from your prison cell..
