• Stories like these make me SICK!!!! Life is hard enough as it is and these dumb a+@#% have to run around the streets "trying" to act like they are some big shots. I would be embarrassed not proud to walk around with my pants or shorts hanging to my knees not knowing a thing about what life is really about!!! Stick all the cholos, gang bangers, or whatever they like to be called in a big hole in the desert and let them all go at each other. They should have joined the military so they could have been sent out to the Mideast and faced the crazy Taliban. SEE HOW TOUGH YOU IDIOTS WOULD BE THEN!!!

  • Jeffrey Soto was scheduled for trial back in October WITH these 2 F!@#^" and Trial was postponed because Victoria couldn't find enough unbiased jury members. Mr. Soto hired Tali Villafranca as his attorney and the other 2 have court appointed attorneys. Hmmm!!! I asked the same thing.

    However, what a shame the gang bangers easily can take Orders from punks/animals BUT yet can't take out the trash, clean their room and/or run the vacuum when they are told by their parents or grandparents. Typing this and sitting here SMH – Shaking My Head

    Rereading a past article I came across this “serving as his "padrino," (godfather) Martinez said he quickly moved up the ranks from esquina to "prospecto" (instructor) to finally a "carnal" (friend or member).” Maybe they should have joined the Boy Scouts and maybe they would have had a better outcome in life since they seem to move up in ranks pretty quickly.

  • Bill White defended a friend of a friend. He got 3 life terms in prison. White called no witnesses and did not do his job in defending the suspect. He just let Tyler do his thing. I'll bet that this HPL guy is going up the creek without a paddle. Because of Bill White not doing his job.
