I lived in Monrovia for over 20 years before I moved out last year due to gangs. I still love Monrovia, It is sad what is happening to the little town. I think the parents need to take the responsibility for teaching their kids to be prejudice, who cares if they are black, white, mexican, asian, etc... Everyone is equal no matter what, duh! To fight about it is a waste of time which is why this is happening. Kids have too much idle time on their hands and no supervision. Heaven forbi someone spanks their child these days. Society is producing what we have today. Get over the racial thing.

To your comment, I turned out just fine myself and I was brought up in the same manner. My children do not attend the public school system for the issues related to gangs and it is my choice to make. Not that they are too good, it is that I care so much about them. My children are very happy kids thank you, but there is nowhere south of Foothill that is worth my children's time, in the city of Monrovia. I feel it is people with a mindset of yours are the ones who expect the school system to raise your kids and deal with the issues while you are at work. There is life outside of Monrovia.
There are nice patches south of the Blvd, but surrounded by the unfortunate defect of being surrounded by the problematic gang issues.

You may have a valid point there. How about anyone getting any government assistance is on mandatory birth control?

Very well said. What difference does it make what race, color, or country of origin you claim. You as a white, or whatever race you claim, makes you no better, or smarter than any other. The fact is you couldn't go 5 minutes without using or eating, or even breathing for that matter without the responsibility or help of an "illegal" or anyone not of your race.
Please educate yourself, don't embarrass yourself.

Your right there is nothing wrong with private schools, but you can not, and do not do anything for your community if you do not support your school district, nor do you know the good kids that are there. Our school district is one of the best with nearly 85% of students going on to college. I see those same kids at the street fair, and I see it 2 ways, obviously that is only one % of the total middle school population but teens act like teens no matter where they are, ever been to the Beverly Center or the Grove? And they can not learn to act appropriately in public if they are never given that inch to have independence. You are right most of them have no money, but the alternative is they would be walking the streets bored if they didn't have a "safe" place to hang out. Did you know we used to have a youth center for these kids? Well the city never reopened it. Should these kids sit at home and play video games and become hermits? Should their parents have them on a leash at 14? Really? We all were 14-16 at one time. We no matter where you lived, had the trust from our parents to walk to the movies, or go to the mall and be a teenager, why deprive this generation because some have become to frigid and all the sudden forgot what it is like to be a kid?
I think you are way off. Those of us sending our kids to private schools are double paying for education, for the private school and the public school through our tax dollars. We are supporting Monrovia schools, whether we like it or not. It is rediculous to infer that I should hinder the safety of my children and send them to school with gang bangers. You have to be kidding, really? As for our parents trusting us and allowing us to do what we wanted when we were 14, yeah. It was safe back then and times are different now. I say as a parent you have to have a leash on your kids and let them be safe hermits at home!

I am trying to understand, the kid that was shot was a white kid? and the shooters were mexican? and people witnessed this go down? I am assuming the shooters were mnv, but what gang affiliation did the victim have? I have to imagine that no matter what races were involved they must have been young. very sad for everyone involved. to all the ass holes crying about how poor people are leaches, i say fu#k off, quit acting like your so much better and superior, someone died here, don't turn this into about you loosing your money

My guess is your kids are not of that age yet. My guess is they are in elementary school so you think you will control every aspect of their lives. Yet, they will want to go to the street fair, they will want to go to the mall. Are you really going to be that parent that hovers over their every move? I have teenagers, both at the High School, both educated in Monrovia Schools, Wild Rose, Clifton and the HS; both doing just fine, both honors and AP students. Somewhere around middle school they asked to go to the street fair, hesitant I was, but did I want them to sit at home and not let them learn how to act in the real world? One thing that does separate private and public school kids is their ability to learn to work with others of all back rounds, beliefs and status. It teaches them to appreciate what they have and how to accept others. If I can't trust the community in which I live then I should not live here. But I do. No it's not perfect, it's not Mayberry, but I don't live in a bubble, and don't expect my kids to either. You can't take pride in your community if you are afraid to join it. And you are only partially correct as far as the support goes. The schools get money for each day a kid is in school. If your kids are not in our schools our schools do not get the money. By taking your kids to other schools you are taking money out of our schools. And if you think you are in the majority of "Upper" residents, who send their kids to private you are wrong. Most of my kids friends and classmates are probably your neighborhood kids. But you wouldn't know that would you? Did you know most of our teachers and even principals live HERE in Monrovia? Guess where they send their kids to school? Public Schools!

I agree with Rick. Every time i go to visit my girlfriend in monrovia I get dirty looks from young black males all around the city. I always have to watch my back when I bring her home late on the weekends. I never see one police vehicle patrolling the streets. Although I always see them meeting at the local 7-eleven. I guess they are even afraid to roam the streets that late.
your a dumbass did you read one word in the story about blacks no i didn't think so dumbass all i know is the mexicans are going crazy in m town !!!! "ICE" better step there game up!! i know one thing you guys out there did not have this problem before all them mexicans filled up the city

I've seen a lot of private school kids blowing lines of coke at parties... go La Salle!! schools have nothing to do whether kids are good or bad, it's the parents. I've seen a lot of rich people that don't interact, or have anything to do with their kids. Quit acting like this is a public school problem, you might be able to shelter your kids from bad kids by sending them to private school, but all your doing is setting them up for disaster in life because you can't shelter them from bad people forever. Going to public schools has taught me street smarts and common sense. Some rich people are self made most are born into getting better opportunities over what the average person gets, has a matter of fact a lot of those kids throw those opportunities away because they are spoiled. Every prejudgment I am making about upper class people might not pertain to you but don't cry about me judging you based on your post, after all your judging public school kids and poorer people.... did private school teach you how to spell "rediculous"

They need to get these mexicans off the street. The shooting on Los Angeles street was aimed at little kids! These kids were no older then 12 and just playing football in the street. Shot at because they were black and not because they were in gangs. From what I Heard this Kid that died yesterday was involved with Meth sales/use and that may have lead to his death. But These mexican gangmembers will shoot at ANYONE. Ive live in Monrovia my whole life and "north" monrovia is no better. Thats where most of the big time drug dealers live. When i was in HS if you wanted weed, coke, meth, it was sold by the white kids who lived in the north.

When the last shootings occurred 2 years ago, I met a single, involved mom who, unfortunately, lived in the same apartment building that Samantha Salas' father lived in. She talked about the fear her chilren had to deal with when bullets came through the front of their apartment building. This mom had kids at the same school as my children, Santa Fe, and was trying her very best to keep them on the straight and narrow. She left her husband and moved away to Monrovia to make a better life for her kids. This family does not have the priviledge to buy a home at all, much less a home above Foothill. There are lots of hard working, lower income families in our community that are doing the right things in life. You don't have to live above Foothill to do it. Funny how every time something bad happens, the north and south start fighting.
First of all I agree with lady in north foothill i would do the same, but gang members are't born they are raised by grown ups to go straight i hope but parents being involved is number one, i work 2 jobs and still have time to raise my kids correctly, environment plays a small part in all this, its individuals who decide what they want

You can sell this to someone who cares about the "system". I care about my kids. I pay for measure M, whether my kids attend or not. I guess you can call me a snob, so be it. My children do not live in a bubble,rather have parents that care about them. The public school system has been ruined by liberals who want to do the politically correct thing. I am not shy about saying, I don't want my kids associating with the "hommies"! I was educated in the public school system in the good Mayberry days. I did not worry about being shot on my way to school or someone carrying a gun into the classroom. Wake up, these are the times we are living in. I do not care about what the Jone's are doing and where the teachers live. Get real!

Hey, I would rather see my kids blowing coke that having their brains blown out......Been there done that. You as a public school alum must be familiar with the scene as I am a product of public school system too. I am not judging the public school system, I just don't believe in it. There you go! This is my opinion and I am entitled to it. Whether you like it or not, that is your problem. When your kid is the one with his blood smeared on the ground for the hommies, you can root for the school system that brought them in. Fight on!

I can not believe those bashing the schools, do you really think your that much better because you can afford private school? Do you think you care that much more than the dad down at the park coaching Little League? Are you better because your kids will never step foot in the Boys and Girls Club? That is great that you have a secure career, some of us have to work hard and we do. Some of us are that day that works all day then coaches then goes home and does homework, do we care less about our kids then you because I could not afford the private school education?We all pay for Measure M. It improves our city. It will increase our home values all around. People need to get off their high horse. Kids are not killing each other in the schools. There has been a total of 2 or 3 murders in 2009 neither were kids.(Thankfully). Kids are not taking guns to school and waving them randomly at students. You must stay in and watch too much tv if you really think that is the case. Instead of snubbing the schools you should want them to succeed. After all it is these kids that will be the ones that will be on the police force, working in the hospital the ones you may need to call on someday. Remember that.

New Resident - I moved out of Monrovia last year and still do love the city. It is sad what is happening there. If you want to be involved get into the school board meetings as well as with the city meetings with the Mayor. When the issues happened 2 years ago a group of parents started taking shifts to the streets on Friday/Sat/Sun nights to just drive around and notify police of any suspicious activity which resulted in a few arrests. We moved away shortly after. All my kids went to Monrovia schools and I needed to get them out. My daughter and Garret were close friends back then.
