Your name befits your character--garbage. Why don't you fill in that chip on your shoulder and stop looking for the worse in things? I'm not a bleeding heart lib, but why is it jerks like you always got to make judgmental, snide comments?

At least "Garbage" doesn't shoot innocent people, you ARE a liberal pantywaist. STFU and get a life, you meatball.

One more incident that wouldn't have happened if we had a secure border...where is homeland security?
Secure the border and cut crime by 42%. Deport all illegals and reduce the prison population by 38%. Wow, we would have enough room to keep our criminals in jail!

Glad I moved far, far away from that ghetto. I remember 22-23 years ago there was a fair at the Memorial Center, across the street from this incident. A fight broke out between hoodlums with knives.

First we have get rid of the people in power: mayor, city council and local/state rep. Then we secure the border. We can't secure the border with clowns running the show.

Just what does the Arizona Law have to do with this?
The article does not state an ethnicity for the gang members, so why not STFU ignorant racists.

So I'm the pot that calls the kettle black huh? You don't need to make spiteful comments in hopes that it'll teach society a lesson.

Let me tell you a little something, and I'm humble because this lesson stuck with me since. When I was in 6th grade I used to think I was a comedian and made fun of this guy because he was an "easy target." It wasn't friendly banter, instead I tried to belittle him in front of everyone at his expense. I thought I was funny in my 12 year old mind. One day after school, that guy caught me off campus and punched my face hard. It knocked me to the ground and he continuously punched me several more times in the face. My face was swollen with bruises, a busted lip, and blood profusely flowed from my mouth. That guy got the last laugh. From then, I never disrespected others again by making snide, spiteful comments. I respect that guy for teaching me a lesson, and, the fact that he could've turned the tables and bullied me. He didn't, but instead walked away and ignored me thereafter.

In this day and age, cowards can sit behind a computer and write anything. It's not about "venting" like you imply.

I don't see this as a border issue. I see it as a gang issue. The gangster , thug life, hip-hop, tribal culture that thrives in America is the problem. Education is the solution, but it's too late. Half of California kids drop out of our public schools.

If there's a war on terrorists. Aren't gangs a terrorist group? I say shoot to kill. Wipe out the gangs. I'll even bet you that you start getting the illeagles out of this country and you'll see a reduction in crime.

Lived in Lawndale from 87-02. Friends would go out for a walk, disappear for a week, only to find out they had been beat by gang idiots. I was out for a jog at 11pm on Condon and a yellow Caddie with blackened windows pulled up and a black jerk flashed a sawed off shotgun. ha ha, real funny
Between the Tongans, 13's and blacks, average Joe is a sitting duck. Walk around carrying your own gun risks jail time for concealed carry.

I left a good job at TRW, friends living on the Esplanade and now have a piece of Wyoming solitude. Instead of sirens and gunshots, I have to worry about insects and bears. lol

Get out while you can as it only will be getting worse.

Dont they all ? They are ALL COWARDS ! Take the weapon away and all you have is a punk tough guy who acts like a thug ! These lowlifes should be hunted and exterminated like the roaches that they are, and who cares what color they are, or if they are here legally or not because it doesnt matter when you break the law ! Dont send em to prison, send em to the graveyard where they belong ! Vigilante justice , CCW, viva la 2nd Amendment !

You made snide remarks because your momma didn't step to the plate to teach you any manners. To this day you still don't. Do you have a father?
