Do we know why Michael Gudiel was walking around Bassett at 3:15 in the morning? With all due respect, only crooks and drunks are usually out at that time of the morning. It's a shame he's dead, but if he had been home sleeping like regular folks, he would probably still be alive today.

all of these and many more exist. The Sheriffs cannot be expected to control this battle of gang bangers that half do not what they are killing for and are just taking orders from a older homeboy. Peer pressure is everything here to the younger wannabe just got jumped in newest gang member.

Moms and Dads keep your kids safe, do not let them live this life if you never did. They are being influenced by the wrong group of people. If your a gangmember from way back and your kid is one then you did not raise him up right knowing this is a wrong life to live, because they will not live very long.

I grew up watching my two older brothers gangbang and they were in and out of prison as well as Heroin addicts at a early age. One died (murdered) thru gang violence the other is on skid row homeless looking for his next fix. With no fater to raise us they went the wrong way, myself I witnessed them doing all this crazy stuff and wanted no part of it as I went to school and off to college to get a degree. I now run my own business. With money in my pocket I do not seek out my homeless brother because he will never change. Dont let this happen to your kids moms and dads, because when it is too late all that is left is death for them. GANGBAGGING DOES NOT PAY OFF IN THE END.

I believe the Parents of these gangbangers should be held accountable for their actions, maybe if they are arrested for contributing to the ganster life style their children are living things might change. If the gandbangers kill a person and are found guilty the parents should pay restitution to the families of those that were killed, parents try to encourage your children to want better for them selfs and stop living the style of the hood rat. Parents you can't be that nieve and not see what lies ahead when your children starts dressing like a gangster, you buy there clothes so say NO to baggy pants.

You sound pretty uneducated. Maybe it's all that time you've spent in Bassett making friends with scum.

Well Venessa when they kill your brother or your father you will think differently of these supposed gang members you do not seem to have problem with. Unless you are fatherless which is most lilely the case because you can tell you have dropped out of school with your way of writing and the grammar you choose to use. Keep living Ghetto fabulous in Bassett but dont come crying on here when one of those closest to you gets whacked. If you know them all and they are killing each other why would you want to be in the middle of it all knowing rivals of both sides.? I guess get your daisy dukes shorts and your tank top ready along with your poster board and markers, because you will be busy this summer as you prepare for many dead homeboy car washes.

Speaking of dead gangbangers can ANYONE confirm a e-mail I received today re; a very elderly latino gentleman pushing a beat-up shopping cart, on Valley Bl., El Monte, selling religious candles, empty beer cans and paper flowers. Now that's the American Way
to beat the recession; endless supply of victim's and relatives.

Strange how Gloria Molina and other elected officials from the San Gabriel Valley have NEVER had a "comment" published here in this paper, lots of press releases with donuts and coffee for the press but nothing for us common citizens.
Also has anyone ever seen a city councilperson,ANY city/area, walking the sidewalks at midnight asking Que Pasa? to the people that pay their salary, health benefits,insurance etc.etc.
Anyone out there??

I agree with miguel. I grew up Bolen Parque and also avoided all the big teazers, skeezers, and wierdos. Parents must be involved in their kids lives. It has been proven that invoivment prevents teen age pregnancy, gangs, and substance abuse. It just too bad that these animals are like puppets, unable to make concious decisions to better their lives, families and communities. Wake up RAZA! Have some real BROWN PRIDE!

Gangbanging and where did it come from?

Back in the day 40's 50's and 60's
Bugsy Siegal
Mickey Cohen
before that:
Al Capone etc.

Movies like the Godfather, Bugsy,Johnny Brasco
Shows like the Sopranos.

All of this created the life of the cholo and gangbanger years ago with recents shows and movies enhancing it.

It does not end because gangster life and true stories of this all take a imagination of a person mostly men and they eat that shyt up. The act it out in true life, their kids see it and emulate it.

African American and Latinos do their own movies on it. Mi. Familia, blood in blood out, american me, American gangster, Biggy Smalls, etc.

This promotes gang life and all it does is kill people and innocent victims at times. All it does is keep our law enforcement employed. If there were no gangsters our police force would not neeed to be as huge as it is and thus saving our state and tax payers some cash.

As a result we live in this world of hate and drugs not to mention guns, boy does our constitution need to be re-writted because that freedom of this and the freedom of that transpired into loopholes for this never ending killing of gang life. Nothing we can do about it now only hope laws change to eliminate it somehow someway. We need to save this country from going in the toilet and having to foot the bill for this type of gangster life from L.A. to N.Y. it is killing our Country and generations.
