I've lived in this city for 2 yrs now, it's a sad city, alot of aholes and people who dont care one bit about themselves or their homes.As soon as my house sell's im gone, guy goes to kfc and helps some homeless guy and gets killed by a bunch of homeboy's. what a joke couldnt leave the poor guy alone had to kill him. that area down by kfc and the surrounding area is crap. i dont even go to the stater bros, i get in truck and drive to stater bros off clinton keith. I just work hard everyday and come home to my house, but a majority of people in this city are thugs, wanna be gangsters, and drug addicts. the area i live in up in the northshore is going to be little tj in a couple of years, just a bunch of illegal aliens moving in , 8 9 10 to a house and everyone knows it is true. You try and grab a beer at a local bar around elsinore, and you have a young punk's trying to start shit all the time. elsinore blows,and im almost out of here. sorry bro for standing up for someone, and having your life taking away, your killer is probaly in mexico now, being harbored by his dirty stinking family

And he was only 29! One story was wrong and said he was 35. He is the same age as my Brother.

Very sad that this happened. I worked at that KFC for two years and a lot of shady people hung out around the area but I never felt threatened. Even when getting out after 11pm and walking to my car in the dark, I never felt like someone would attack me.
It puts a bad name on hispanics like myself that are law obiding but we can't be ignorant and blame it on a whole group of people like Joe Somebody has implied. I also don't agree with what 951County said.
My condolences go out to the family. Having recently lost two close people in my life, I know how hard it is to lose someone.

Shane died doing a good deed and let's leave it that way don't mess up his memory by your blindness and ignorance, I will keep you all in prayer for being so blind that you have to blame a whole race just because of an incident or many incidents, God gave us all life and all he asks is that we LOVE everyone as he has loved us, you have no right to judge and I pray for your salvation and that God opens your eyes to see that you are no better than anyone else because we have all been born of sin and we are so lucky that Jesus died for each and every one of us, not one race or the other.....May The Lord Bless Your Souls

RIP Shane, you were loved by so many and we will miss you! Your memory will live on bro!

GOD BLESS <><

There is no doubt about it. Ignorance is bliss for those that believe that it is easy to blame one race for causing harm. Its alright. I dont wish harm on anyone but I would love for whomever is blaming another race to remember what they wrote when somebody that they are close to pulls a stupid prank like the one that took Shane away. Then say that it was THOSE DAMN MEXICANS. I am Mexican and damn proud. I know there are dumb ones just like their are dumb ones of another, but think of what you say cleary, before opening your mouth. There is a saying I believe very much to be true:
"It is better to be though of an idiot, than to open one's mouth and confirm all doubt."

Everyone here makes me sick. For everyones information the guy arrested is in fact half white. None of them are illegal. That "homeless man" they were harrassing was actually his father in-law whom they had spent a great deal of time finding and thought it'd be a nice father's day to bring him home. Don't believe everything you read in the paper.

I can't discuss any details about the case.... but don't you think before you post ignorant comments you should check the facts? Check the criminal records on Shane. See what kind of person HE was.

Its a shame that no witness' came forward to tell what REALLY happened. All there is is two sides to who these people were.

I know that a really great friend is sitting in prison for trying to protect himself. A guy who's family has always been there to help me, who have motivated me in so many ways, I'm absolutely outraged.

Excuss me Hope You statments are false 2 There was No baynet Knife on shane.....Shane didnt stab him self and for To there was Witnesses That Came forward and as far as Shanes records That doesnt mean crap he wasnt carrying a wepon just in case or what ever and as far as your friend sitting in prison trying to protect him self HA HA HA He stabbed a man regaurdless of the situation matter of fact went back to his truck and got the knife out in the middle of the fight in the parking lot What kinda man is that???? Allready in a fight walks off and grabs a knife out of there truck and comes back with what intention to kill a i right or what come on

self defense is when you lets say stab some one when you cant get away or maybe if the other had a weapon out 2 but in this case it was unrashnal and HEARTLESS! So Yes Shane's kids family and friends Have to live with the choice your friend did So do i smile when you say he is in Prison Umm yes i Do

I am so sorry for your loss. Good guys are supposed to win, but this generation is so drugged out, it's just such a lost cause. I have lived here for over three years and year year it's just worse and worse. My car has been stolen, the man across the street was stolen last month and two home invasions just on my street alone the last two years and I live in Canyon Hills! Lake Elsinore sucks...can't wait to move one day.
Again, so sorry for your loss, tnose two boys shouldn't have to grow up without a dad, this story makes me bitter towards people and I don't like this feeling..
