At least, Councilmen Shane Suttor and Jailer Bobby Waits started things going in the right direction! On one else will even admit we have a problem. I can't beleive things have gotten this bad.

Why can't you believe things are this bad? When the mayor and chief of police openly ignore immigration laws we are bound to get the criminals. They wanted a sanctuary city and now they get to deal with the consequences. I just can't wait for the housing market to pick up so I can get my family OUT as soon as possible!

This is what is happening in California:

Mexican gangs are killing off Black gangs and taking over entire towns.

Over 300 fires in California, several illegal mexican immigrants have been caught setting some.

Over 90 hospitals and clinics in California have closed due to bankruptsy due to illegal immigrants using the facilities but not paying one cent toward the bill. Yet, they have billions to send back to Mexico.

Yesterday, one of the major mortgage banks closed due to bankruptsy. Known to lend to people with no ID, no work history and no credit history. 500 Million dollars will be the responsibility of the tax payers. Many people with savings, checking, etc. have taken their money out to the tune of over 1 billion dollars in just a couple of days.

Mayor of San Francisco sent 8 illegal latino drug dealers to a rehab house instead of incarceration, now they have escaped.

Is this what Shelbyville is heading to?

Just take a trip down the main street and see the numerous bus. owned by mexicans, mostly bars.

Take a trip to the apts. behind Tractor Supply and visit little Mexico.

Take a trip down historical Bland Ave., not historical anymore.

Not to be odd here,..but Bland Ave.'s problem, at least two years ago, was not Hispanics..

it was the white drunks that lived there, as well as now people coming in from Martinsville.

Bland is bad,..but I can not blame the Hispanics on that one. If anything,..they were the quiet ones.

I was at the mayors town meeting May 2006 (2 years ago) where the homeowners in the Bland neighborhood stood in front of the mayor and the councilmen and some in tears, read from their paper how horrible the conditions were due to illegal aliens. Prostitution, property destroyed or trash everywhere, drug-dealers, thefts, fights and even they were coming into their yards and urination and defacating.

This is the first time I have heard about Bland Ave. being new to Shelbyville.

I was there and saw their distrought and pain.

Wonder why some keep trying to paint a different picture instead of the truth.

Oh btw the ones who don't see this, you don't work at Centro Latino or the Catholic ministries?

Is there really people who think that people are too stupid to read the news Sentinel will print about the gangs, the fights, the shootings, the robberies the illegal aliens are committing and connecting the dots? Oh, read the crime reports, most of them are committed by illegal aliens, not all but the majority. This majority needs to be taken back to their country.

John Smith,sorry my friend but I am a man and just because people have gang tats does not mean they are in a gang.
People do that crap to try to scare other people into believing they are gang members.
I walk the streets of Shelbyville and never once have I encountered a gang of Mexicans, yes some sell drugs and lots of them like to fight, but that is their way of life.
And no I do not love Mexicans, but simply put, there are no Latino or Mexican gangs in Shelby County.

I wonder just how you people think gangs START?
By a group of boys or yes, even girls decideing one day to be known as one?

You are blind if you do not believe we have one forming here. All it takes is a group of kids that think they are bada**...
And no...people do NOT get Tattoos just so they can make other people believe they were/are in a gang. Your grasping for straws there if you believe that.

While Shelby County may not have a fully formed one, or even have any real noted issues with a local branch, we DID have a person robbed and I believe beat up on Washington Street months back, the suspects WERE Gang Memebers, and while they did not reside here, the fact remains, they WERE here.

Don't close your eyes my friend..don't try to place blindfolds over them or look through rose colored glasses. While I never had issues with them, and I lived around a lot of them, the kids today, the violence they bring is 10 times worse then when I grew up.

All it takes is a group of bored teens that form, and then another group and stake some so called imaginary Territory.

We been lucky thus far...

Odd,..the Apartments on Bland Ave have floors...
So did the house they lived in....

Ahhh, and finally, SOMEONE who admits that the problems we face of ILLEGAL immigrants are because of the DUMB WHITE people that are so open hearted that they allowed free clinics, helped provide housing and food and yes, even transportation! WOW, I am impressed!

So when in their language they call you dumb loco broad, and the men smooch at you everytime you pass or your daughter, and everytime they look you up and down and give you that come here look, you remember this...

The kind hearted people opened their doors for them, and all they get in return is knowing these men will bust their ass for a check and send the money back HOME to support their families and wives.

But hey..they'll take what they can get for free, and who could blame them? Right? I mean afterall

You said they live on dirt floors.

Do not get me wrong, there are many LEGAL hispanics here that have worked hard to become part of our community, who have busted their butts, and have taken the pledge, but there are way too many that are not, and in the end, do not care. Notice I said Legal and Illegal here before you get hyper, there is a difference. I simply do not think it fair for those that came here through legal channels, those who busted THIER asses to do so, to turn around and see others who get a pat on the back for walking in here Illegally.

But this arguement is old..and been played out over and over..so when in another 10 years, all the stores will be mainly convereted to Hispanic, as will most of the food, and to pay a simple bill, you'll need to be bi-lingual, you remember this...

They apparently slept on dirt floors, but your money and kindness helped. Thank you, in Spanish.

Why waste the taxpayers money on something like "supposed" Mexican gangs when its the black biker gang selling the crack over in Martinsville.
Bring ICE in to do something about the illegal Mexicans and quit whining about it.
All of our councilpeople, mayor and magistrates are scared to do anything about the illegal problem.
It is up to us and us alone to end it !
