I didn't notice that post. I apologize for my comments to "someone special." Sincere apologies, I agree, no reason to say they were latino. It doesn't matter what race they were.
You didnt make the comment so dont apologize. That other jerk made the comment.... unfortunately I think he was right. It is so imbarassing for us Hispanics. I swear we are not all like that!

Same exact area.....Maria was one of the neighbors that lived in the small track of homes. We all grew up together. It is getting really bad everywhere but in that little track of homes where we were able to play hide and seek until our parents made us go in is getting a little rough and I do not allow my kids outside after dark anymore. It is really sad.
Jeez

I know what you mean. I grew up in Montebello and we also used to play outside until it got dark but now when I visit I feel like I have to be on the look out for the riff raff. I dont feel safe there anymore. We had a lot of nice neighbors and never had problems with anyone. Things have sure changed.

I think he/she thought I was making a comment about Hispanics. I was asking a real question. I am Hispanic so I didnt mean it like that!

That track of homes you are refering to is called DURFEE VILLAGE. It was the area claimed by the B.A. gang. A small group of boys that got into problems with th PV gang in the river bed than it escalated to fights at parties then to shootings then death.They took a party crew and wanted to play with the big boys.

That whole area is infested with gangs. Theres Pico Nuevo,Pico Viejo,SunRise,JimTown.Up the 605 its North Whitter Locos,Basset.Down the 605 its Canta Ranas.Quiet Village. Other directions its Rivera Viejo,Horseshoe,Jardin. The other way its Whittier Varrio Locos,Dead End,South Side Whittier,Brown Brotherhood,Whittier Trese.

The list goes on and on.Now these tagbangers, they dont even have a fricken neighborhood. They are shooting each other for no goddam reason.
You can say its immigration but thats a copout. These are second and third generation AMERICANS.
You can blame it on the glorification of violence by music, videos, games, whatever.
Its the parents fault, society made them, society failed them (I dont know if any one noticed but there is not a fricken ghetto anywhere around here except possibly the JimTown Hoyo).
Open your eyes people when your kids friend is "tagging" on his folder, when you allow kids to have parties at your house, when you dont talk to them when they get home at night from where ever they went, when your their friend and not thier parent, when your "cool", when your eyes are wide shut you are taking a huge risk with thier lives and mine. You are taking a huge risk with my kids lives.
There is not a G*D D*MN safe place in this southeast area. Remember they just shot that guy in Friendly Hills and if we had time I would tell you about the kid that pulled the gun at a La Serna High School basketball game. You didnt hear about one. That happened this year and there is to much money up there to allow it to be public notice.

Now these tagbangers,
Thanks, now I've got a new term for them, so that nobody could come back with "they're not gang members, they were just part of a tagging/party crew..." Hmm.... how about tag-banging crew?

Amen, you preach the truth. For some, it goes back even further than that. Our gang problem is American-raised and educated. If anything, we've exported our gang problem and it's returned to us with an extra bonus (Mara Salvatrucha anyone?)

There used to be another person that posted with "wow" as his/her user name. I'm assuming that person wasn't you, because that person used to post some vile, racist bullshyt up on here. Just thought I'd let you know the history of your user name. If it was you, then I'm glad to see you've changed. If I may be so curious, what sparked the change?

You should go outside at night with your kids. Do not allow fear and intimidation to rule the neighborhood. When good citizens go inside, guess who owns the neighborhood? If you continue to do that, you can expect more shootings.

I agree. I live in the safer part of East Whittier, but it's almost impossible to get to my house without driving through some scarey areas. I don't like it, but what can I do? Those are not my kids because mine are in the car or at home with me. I do not allow my teens to go anywhere without a responsible adult supervising them. They are always home on time and I check up-just in case!!

It's time the government put some serious money in attacking the gang problem...black, white, or brown...I don't care. These aren't gangs they are groups of juvenile deliquents with guns and knives.
