So saddened and sickened that these horrendous acts of violence are happening. My heart goes out to the family and friends of this child. Living so close to the crime scene worries me deeply for my children who attend surrounding schools. Whittier is hot right now, having three lockdowns in the last few weeks raises much concern for the safety of our children....

I was at the DMV when it happened. Went outside to talk with others who were standing around watching, and a young girl said she recognized the group of kids standing outside the liqour store as some from a tagging crew. She also said it was likely East Whittier gang involved.

I agree, cause I was jumped severly by 5 fools and 1 friend out of 4 friends help me up, while he got socked up and a tooth chiped. The other 3 friends just watched me get jumped, like a bull tossing a bullfighter around, helpless. I was a bloody mess... We were going to bust a cap on them later, until one of the lil ones said, "don't my brother is from there". We had the guns cocked and ready when the lil bro showed up. He saw....

Talking about when I got jumped severly: it was all over my friend saying, " this party is wack". The party was for a gang member and 100 gang members or more were there. 5 out of the
100 gang members beat me before calingl " THE GUN"...

Well said i've lived in whittier most of my life and raised my kids here and they are very respectful and very good children i was and am a very involved parent. Times were tough when they couldn't always be in a sport but we kept busy i'd do anything to keep them off the streets and it was hard being a single parent but very proud to say i did it and my kids will thank me later.

I have NO sympathy for gang bangers and "taggers". They made a choice to live the "thug lifestyle" and, as expected, it just bit another one right in the azzz - or should I say FACE.
ADIOS!! That's one less name on the neighborhood walls.
I don't feel sorry for the parents, either. If the parents were good, decent parents they would have KNOWN their kid was a gang-banger or tagger and was hanging out with the wrong crowd. Yes, I blame the parents, too.
Good parents raise good kids. Good parents are involved in their kid's lives. Good parents know when their kids are hanging out with the wrong kind of "friends". Good parents would set their kids straight and make sure their children know the difference between right and wrong.
There is NO REASON why a kid in a marginal neighborhood couldn't go through life without being involved in a gang. So many parents and kids make the excuse that "they had no choice" or they "had to join a gang". That's total BULLSQUAT! That's nothing more than a pathetic excuse from a lazy parent.
