This ain't right...same ole areas the shootings keep going on....a 13yr old? An infant? A old lady? I didnt hear about the 13yr old at all on the news. Same areas all the tyme. I don't get it at all. I know I'm preaachin to the choir.....just gotta post somthing. I know its not us its not the police its the shooters who ain't don't give a hoot about you me the police and prison. They don't even care about they own life. Man I got pulled over twice in the last month . Once by lapd and once by cypress pd.....on Sunday when we were hangin out on westertn in out low riders...they sure had the police out in full force for us showing off our low riders..not hurting anybody... all blk and brown united . Hopefully they catch these killers

I love LA ! It's such a nice, peaceful place to raise a young family. The education my kids will get just from being in the 'Hood will last a life time.

I forget, do the Crips wear Red or Blue? I think if my kids wear white they'll be OK.

I just love LA.

The difference between 4months old and 13 years old is just numbers, they have parents who love them the difference is what is the law enforcement agency in each area trying to hide. One gets TV, newspaper coverage day after day until the shooter is found, the other from Compton doesn't even get a helicopter in the air, a mention in the evening news and to top it off the Sheriff let the shooter go after telling them to freeze. That is the difference the cover up of the sheriff's office that they are incompetent because after all a child is a child.
