Wow, it is amazing the bubble that so much of victoria walks around in.
yes there are a lot of wanna be gang bangers in victoria.There is also a lot of REAL gang members. Go have a conversation with the gang task force at the Victoria County Sheriff's Office. Become informed before making such ignorant statements.
i just finished reading everybodys comments and i think some of the comments that were left were uncalled for first of all somebody mention that shooting with the little boy as you all know he was a innocent child but next time yall bring that story up yall need to get yall story right because mexican mafia did not have nothing to do with it robert canchola was my little cousin so i appericate it if yall dont add on to the story because yall have no clue what yall are talking about and another thing it does not matter what area around victoria you are in gangs are every where
last line of previous post should have said - Let them finish each other off.
Maybe law enforcement should just let them hurt/beat/kill each other - why waste tax payers money on the time/effort on trying to catch these low lifes who are just gonna turn around and do it again, and if they do get send to prison, they will just order one of there "homeboys" to finish the job...I say let me finish each other off.
The victims know who did this, but none of them are talking.
A crime has been committed and I hope the VPD find the criminal's that did this.
"Last time I checked all humans have a beating heart."
Yeah, so does a leopard. He'll kill you, too. Gangbangers deserve no sympathy from anyone. Sorta makes me wonder if you're related.
Last time I checked all humans have a beating heart."Father forgive them for they know not what they do" or in this case "or say"over and out
yep and a bunch of followers and cowards too..
IMO there are no "real" gangs in this town..."wanna-be" gangs if anything...
Romonak I don't know these people and it seems to me nobody else does either so stop it . Im not trying to defend anyone but it is what it is so let it be. Second ...there are a lot of pretending going on in Victoria also. There are not that many real gang members here. Especially Bloods/Crips .....believe me (tired of texting)
Didn't say to be afraid of it, redrage...but there is alot of activity down there. But yes, there are some areas...thanks to section 8....in other parts of town that are havens for these retards.
tomahawk...juvenile gangs are not the only gangs we have...yes, we DO have MS-13, we have crips, bloods, mexican mafia, texas syndicate, HPL, raza unida, ABT, and AC! all right here, in little ole Victoria...
wake up Victoria!
and by the way, you are right...just because there was a shooting or stabbing does not mean it was gang related. Law enforcement makes those statements based off of what they know about those involved and the circumstances of the situation. they don't say it, unless they have good reason to believe it.
You think we don't have "hard-core" gang activity...well you must reside on the northside!
talk to anyone in victoria that works in law enforcement. take a drive under the hill. If you are observant, you will see colors, graffiti...hell the just walk around wearing that crap.
If you actually put a little faith in our police department and started believing it when they say something in gang related, you may start to realize...oh hell...we have a gang problem!...and viola! the bubble has popped and i would like to welcome you to the real world.
RedRage, perhaps that is because the majority of shootings and stabbing in Victoria ARE gang related. You think the police don't know what they're talking about? Or perhaps you are just in denial of how bad Victoria's gang problem really is. Understand that the PD, SO and other agencies meet every month to discuss gang members and activity.
They know alot about what is going on in the "gang world".If they say it is gang related, then it probably is.
Mr.Reality, you sure do like taking up for them...perhaps you are a friend or relative? If not, then you really probably have no idea what you are talking about.
FACT: Victoria has a gang problem.
Deny it all you want people. Doesn't make it any less true.
Thinking is one thing....knowing is another .Seems to me we got a lot of thinkers.(stick 2 the facts )
How do anybody here including Ure know that these incidents are gang related? Do anybody know Vincent ? A lot of rude commENTS here towards this man being shot. How would you feel if it was you or a relative shot dead . It must of been gang-related ,right .....wrong (this a text )
OMG1, that reminds me of this awesome movie called Mean Guns. If you haven't seen it, you should pick it up.
Solution to gang problem:1. round up all gang members.2. give each one a gun and a knief3. let 'em fight to the the last one4. execute the last one
While some of you will find this funny, I agree that this is a parenting problem. Early intervention is the only hope.
"Those "men" are still someones' children." With all due respect excuseme01, if this were truely a child issue I would say that this is a perfect example of lack of proper parenting. They ceased being a "child" when they chose the way of crime and violence. We are not dealing with innocent children but people with a disregard to their fellow man.
I would say "let them continue to kill each other". But unfortunatly it will spill over to innocent people just as it did in Chicago during the mafia era of the 30's and 40's. Sooner or later the general public will have to make a stand.
Games people play...
for all of you that down graded the manager and the property for the cleanning up, you all should feel bad. This started somewhere else, yes it finished on the property. But how could the manager stop this if he and his so called girlfriend is in a gang. I live at fox run and things are changing.
Since both parties are laid up in the hospital, can't we tag'em before we release them back into society? The proper authorities will be able to track there migrations and know who is where when the next shooting happens. The two shooters of Vincent are going to be shot in about a week, or when the hard working 2 job holding Vincent gets out of the hospital. He has two jobs...funny! Let me guess..he is a bouncer and a cook and gets paid cash..tax free! Really if you think about it he has a third job, being a skid mark on the underpants of society!
May God Bless You also.Have a nice day.
Been there done that. And the lesson I have learned is it is easier to forgive than to forget. My Lord said when he was crucified "Father forgive them for they know not what they do" and that is what I live by. (Easy for me but not for many.)
Those "men" are still someones' children.
You are correct but if they robbed or murdered someone close to you, you would not have so much sympathy.Come on, this guy wanted the gang life style and he got it!
gang-related,gang-related,gang-related....stop guessing and print the facts!
Why are you people such haters? Those "men" are still someones' children. Sure they chose that life but that doesn't not make them human. How would you like to get that knock on the door telling you that your son is dead? Or by this time did you disown them? I agree with vbb, two jobs is better than none. If I read that story right sounds like someone knows how to fight. Think about it, the ones who retaliated did so with a gun. My prayers are with all involved good or bad. Judge not lest be judged.
I remember when I was younger Victoria County had a coyote problem. Then, they started a program that paid out $5 for every pair of coyote ears you brought in. This program really worked well. I was wondering where else could we use this idea???
I've been verbally threatened with guns by "gansters" twice in the last 3 years. Once in a night club and once outside a night club. Luckily for me, both times they could run their mouths a lot better than they could fight. Maybe one day I'll run into some that have a set of rocks to go along with their smart mouths and threats.... naah, I doubt it. Worthless punks.
Good point Riverboat. I think you are on to something. Our tax dollars shouldn't go to Section 8 housing, it should go to a program that gives free guns and ammo to the worthless punks that call themselves gansters. I think them taking on this name is an insult to the real gansters of the old days (Al Capone). A gang used to be something to be fearful of. 95% of the "gangsters" I see roaming around Victoria couldn't fight their way out of a paper sack, gun or no gun.
Maybe those same people can pay his hospital bills instead of leaving it to the tax payers! Dream on!
Don't hate Lane6...a job is a job & he had 2 of 'em....got to give him credit for that. Not too many gang bangers have 1 job, much less 2.
"He had two jobs though"...? A restaurant and a latino night club? Sounds like he is in between jobs to me.
Since he knows so many people, it shouldn't be a problem coming up with blood donors, or pallbearers. Which ever the case may be...
He had 2 jobs though.
" .....showed up at a gun fight with a knife....." How sad.
Hmmm...If it walks like a duck......
