  • To the family of this young man: May he rest in peace. Hopefully now you will gain some type of closure. With that being said please do not interpret the following as any type of defense or excusing of gang activity or criminal activity.
    These "gang members " are sons, brothers, fathers etc. whom I assume have made decisions to join gangs because they feel this is their family. Kids who have no guidance at home because parents are too consumed with their own lives to even pay attention or are too lazy to. They are left alone often due to only one working parent in the household to roam free in the streets, smoking, drinking, doing drugs, wanting someone to see them and when no one does....

  • First of all my thoughts go out to Mrs Mireles, with hope that the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will comfort her.

    Secondly, thanks to local law enforcement for their perserverance in finding the ones who are responsible for this senseless act.

    Finally, since these pitiful excuses for human beings continue to reek havoc on our society by taking lives, selling illegal drugs, terrorizing citizens with their pack of animal lifestyle, etc.., can our city look for ways to effectively put in place an all out war against gang members. Get people and businesses with money to fund some type of special local program through law enforcement to seek out these thugs and put all of them away. If necessary, put a bounty on them.

    Maybe other Victoria citizens could recommend some program that could get more and more gang members out of our community.

  • " You reap what you sow. You are who associate with"...... Well, that's very bible-ee. I don't associate with gang bangers, never have, never will and the vast majority of folks in Victoria don't either, but many Victorian's have been affected by gang bangers and their criminal activity. So riddle me this bible dude, after the bangers get done with their reaping and sowing, why are the non-bangers unfortunate enough to share in the bangers harvest ? And as far as justice being served, ain't it written in that same bible somewhere , a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye and a life for a life ? True justice will only be served when the men who stole Joshua Gonzalez's life, pay it back with their own, anything less amounts to a five finger discount.

  • If it looks like a gang member, walk like a gang member, talks like a gang member, it's a gang member.

    Sad that families in Victoria embrace and endorse this kind of culture. And when one of their family members who are involved in a gang end up being a victim, the families bemoan the violence, all while supporting their family member's prior association of being in a gang.

    You reap what you sow. You are who associate with.

  • More lowlife scum taken off the streets. To those stupid, hermanos pistoleros latinos (should be dumb %@&@*) and their ruling "mesa" and all the gangs out there: You are all pieces of crap. None of you deserve a trial. You should be taken out and destroyed. You are of no use to anybody and will always be a menace to society. It makes me so angry when I read about stuff like this. Innocent lives destroyed by these thug gang bangers.
