It's still amazes me how much of a headline a shooting in Huntington Park is....had this been Huntington BEACH, it would be front page news!

BTW: It was in the unincorporated area of LA County; Walnut Park...not Huntngton Park.

You are right PUAS! Had this been Huntington by the Beach and the victims were of another color / race and not latino, there would be such an outrage and outcry from the community, it would have made CNN and Anderson Cooper would be speaking on it. We got 5 sentences online. regarding this tragedy. I live on the 3300 block of Grand in H.P. and I heard the helicopter flying overhead this morning... If I stay up late enough, I could hear gunshots almost every night without fail.

you guys live in an illegal alien city and then cry about the new reporting your illegal alien gang bang killin....HB is not full of Illegal aliens like Huntington Park....so do go boo hooin bout H B in the OC cus you live in a pigsty full of converted garages

Your statement was a very classy one... I hope your parents are proud of the upbringing you were given (I'm being completely sarcastic!). It's ignorant people like you that I'm more afraid of than even the "illegal alien gang bangers".

A life was taken, a young one at that.. nobody deserves to die the way that girl did, whether it happened it Huntington Park or Huntington Beach.. I, too, sincerely hope that whoever did this gets caught and punished for such a violent crime.

Yes everyone, HB is an all-American city, full of citizens who pull themselves by their bootstraps. All the wonderful restaurants run exclusively on fully documented US citizens or residents. That means everything from that over-priced latte to that cheeseburger you scarf down near the boardwalk is prepared by the bored hands of a teenager or some HB resident, because darn it only Americans can prepare American food.

All the wonderfully manicured lawns of the various beautiful beach side homes or condos are maintained by the very property owners there.

And needless to say, all the child care is done by the very parents who birthed them, because delegating this duty to anyone else would be Un-American. Right?

I love the racist remarks left by the ignorant racists.

Who's crying about gangsters? We're complaining that the news is lopsided, and favors more affluent readers / viewers, but you didn't touch upon that point of the argument.

If only folks could open their eyes and see it's federal policy to open borders in order to lower wages and further capitalism's economic model, then the finger pointing at people coming to this country for some semblance of opportunity ( just like ALL people living here minus the native / indigenous population did.... which by-the-way was killed off by the hand of euro's / white settlers... the definition is GENOCIDE ) would be seen as more than just the "recent" Spanish speaking immigrants from south of the border. Narrow mindedness is detrimental to your mental health.

Has anyone seen the movie Gangs of New York? A good point is clearly made in that movie: You have a first generation descendant of Irish immigrants hating on the new Irish immigrants ( Daniel Day-Lewis' character ). I mean, how ignorant and racist can one be? Hating his own "kind." We still have that dark and ignorant heart today... from politicians, to government workers, to your old neighbor fearing "the black man" or the "hispanic"moving in and bringing house values down.... so sad folks still have those hangups.

And to think that ALL folks working in those places in HB are legal? Yeah right, you must believe everything you hear on TV too, huh? Oh yeah, and your taxes go to good use too, not to fill the pockets of bureaucrats and further the downward spiral of this once great country's populace.
