Jamiel Shaw’s gang association made him a target for murder, not race

aaaslauson_tnLOS ANGELES – On March 2, 2008, Jamiel Shaw Jr., 17 was gunned down by 19 year old Pedro Espinoza, a 18th Street gang member who had been arrested on the same day of Jamiel’s funeral according to the Los Angeles District Attorney. Espinoza had spent nearly four months in a Los Angeles County jail for possessing a firearm and resisting arrest before he was released March 1, 2008 just 28 hours before he murdered Jamiel. Within a week, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency had filed paperwork naming Espinoza a potential candidate for deportation. If convicted for this crime, he will most likely receive a life sentence, so the immigration hold brings no heavier punishment for this offense. It turns out that when Espinoza was four years old, he was smuggled into the United States from Mexico and he grew up in a neighborhood just west of Shaw’s Arlington Heights home.

When the murder was reported in the local news, Jamiel was characterized as the son of a military mother, who was a successful high school athlete that was not involved in street gangs in any way. The media described this murder as “senseless” and when it was determined that Espinoza was an “illegal alien,” the story of Shaw’s murder was being highlighted by the media’s strongest critics against illegal immigration; Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, and Lou Dobbs. According to Bill O’Reilly, “Jamiel was just walking around, he wasn’t a bad kid, he’s an athlete, he was at the wrong place at the wrong time” (March 24, 2008 – The O’Reilly Factor).


Jamiel wasn’t a bad kid, but he did have relationships with gang members in his community that led to Espinoza’s fatal assault on him. Jamiel lived in a community occupied by Bloods that have been at war with 18th Street for 12 years. With witnesses pointing out that a Hispanic was responsible for the murder, the only logical assailant would be a member of 18th Street, a predominately Mexican-American gang with very few undocumented members. Reports that 18th Street gang has a membership that is 80% illegal is false. Of the County’s total gang population approximately five to 10 percent are not US born.

The 18th Street gang formed during the 1960s in the Pico-Union community of Los Angeles and has formed over 20 separate gangs within Los Angeles County. Collectively they are the largest Hispanic gang operating under the same name, but in actuality, each of the 20 or so discreet 18th Street neighborhoods should be treated as individual autonomous gangs, since many of the separate neighborhoods clash and have internal rivalries in an unstable network. Reports that 18th Street as a “supergang” are media myths that also include gangs such as MS13, Maravilla, Surenos, Crips, and Bloods, all which are NOT gangs but umbrella labels that hundreds of gangs in Los Angeles identify with. If there were any truth to the existence of these “supergangs,” then the Crips, predominately black, would be the largest street gang in Southern California with approximately 20,000 members in Los Angeles County alone and several thousands more in the surrounding Counties. Since the Crips and black-on-black violence was yesterday’s news, our media is no longer concerned with their violence, even though they are responsible for the majority of gang crimes in our city. Mainstream media attention on gangs for some has now shifted to highlighting the violence that the smaller illegal alien gang member population have committed.

In the Arlington Heights neighborhood, a preliminary investigation reveals that the shooter from 18th Street went to the door of one of Jamiel’s neighbors and shortly thereafter saw Jamiel walking on the street, who was wearing a red belt, a common gang identifier in that neighborhood. According to a witness, the shooter asked Jamiel what gang he was from and then he shot him. All indications about Jamiel was that he was a good teen with a bright future, but what may have caused the shooter to single Jamiel out was his association or membership with the neighborhood gang including amiable relationships with Blood gang members. His relationships with these gang members should not take away from his good character nor does it justify his murder, because people such as Jamiel inevitably interact with gangs because they are in the neighborhood, on the school bus, protecting residents from other gangs, on the street corners and at the high school.

Many of our City’s 40,000 gang members in the database are teens like Jamiel, just mere associates that interact with those in the community and play sports. They are not of the criminal element, but based on his associations, law enforcement would categorize young Jamiel as a gang member, and if they read the following quote that Jamiel wrote on one of his myspace pages under “people I’d like to meet,” it would raise more eyebrows to his gang affiliation:

“I’D LIKE 2 MEET OTHER B-DOGS SOME FREAKY GIRLS BECAUSE U GOT 2 BE A VERY FREAKY 2 TALK 2 ME. SOME crabs SO I CAN BEAT THOSE c-monstas. BUT MAINLY OTHER GIRLS. aND 2 TALK 2 MY FREAKS”

Source: http://www.myspace.com/lilckaboom

The term “B-DOGS” in the above quote is a reference to Blood gang members, and “crabs” is a derogatory reference to Crip gang members. I would characterize the above statement as normal adolescent behavior but law enforcement will call this gang-related. Jamiel was not a bad kid, but he was specifically targeted because of his gang association. Some find it difficult to believe that such a talented athlete would even talk or affiliate with gang members, but college athletes and professional athletes alike are known to have strong ties to their neighborhood gang. Just last week, Boston Celtic’s star Paul Pierce, threw a Piru Blood gang hand sign to Al Horford after a spat during a playoff game that represented his Inglewood neighborhood in California. Stacey Augmon who has gang ties to the Denver Lane Bloods in Pasadena has had a successful career in the NBA and won a national title in 1990 playing for UNLV. In 1996 many skeptics warned about drafting Keyshawn Johnson out of USC because of his “gang ties” to the Fruit Town Brims but Johnson has had a hall of fame career without incident and now a commentator for ESPN. Baron Davis, the star point guard for the Golden State Warriors, has gang ties to his South LA neighborhood and he’s currently producing a film about LA’s gangs, and he is the godfather to Harlem Caron Taylor, the son of gangster rapper The Game. Additionally, Charles Jordan, a Blood member from the Mad Swan Bloods gang played six seasons in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers and was known to tribute his gang with a hand sign after scoring a touchdown.

Jamiel’s association with the Bloods was strong enough to cause the shooter to target him, making this shooting purely gang related as the shooter’s purpose was to benefit the 18th Street gang’s objectives. When the shooter asked, according to a witness, where Jamiel was from, that provided the shooter’s motive lessening the role of race in this shooting. The murder of Cheryl Green in Harbor City in 2006, the murder of Kenneth Wilson in 1999, the murder of Christopher Bowser in 2000, and the murder of Anthony Prudhomme in 2000, all in Highland Park were black residents killed in purely racially motivated fashion where the victims had no gang affiliation in communities where black gangs were not even present. Additionally all the Hispanic assailants in the above murders were US Citizens.

In nine years as testifying as a gang expert in criminal courts, I have seen dozens of individuals wrongly classified as gang members, including mothers, brothers, and other relatives for just being seen in the neighborhood or having an association with someone who is in a gang. Read about Mario Rocha. This vague identification process that police officers use is the reason why the City claims 40,000 gang members with nearly 100,000 gang members County-wide. Many of these young men never know they are being entered into a gang database, and all it takes is an officer to complete a field information (FI) card and write “admitted gang member.” The purpose for including gang affiliations on as many FI cards as possible makes any offense that the individual commits in the future prosecuted with gang enhancement penalties even if the offense was not gang related.

I have always been against lumping people like Jamiel as a gang member, but because of this conundrum, we must look at gangs not as vicious criminal organizations, but as naturally forming delinquent groups, rooted in community, that include everything from non criminal associates to the hard core elements and everything in between. Many of these adolescent youth will mature out of the gang within their first year and never acquire a criminal record or commit violence. Gangs are complex organizations that require a deeper understanding than what media sensationalism and law enforcement depictions offer on the topic.

Of those 40,000 gang members in the City today, we should only be concerned with about 4,000 to 6,000 of those members who are the habitual repeat violent offenders responsible for approximately 90% of all gang related crime. The rest of these “gang members” are close friends, associates, peripheral players, relatives, school friends, “wanna-bes” and community residents. Assuming Espinoza is guilty, one has to attempt to explain why this murder took place before we even try to work at mitigating future violence in this community and certainly before anyone can draft law that is suppose to prevent these types of murders from happening again. Many will suggest that if Espinoza was deported, this shooting would have never occurred, but lets take it further and understand that if 18th Street and the Bloods from this neighborhood were not engaged in conflict, not only would Jamiel be alive, so would several other people.

Anyone truly committed to mitigating the violence between the Bloods in Jamiel’s neighborhood and 18th Street should try to organize a truce between the two neighborhoods that have been feuding for over a decade. I am certain that with proper fiscal resources being used to organize and sustain street worker’s efforts on the conflict between the Bloods and 18th Street, a resolution to this conflict can be achieved that would have a regional impact on other neighborhoods that will educate young people and save lives. Thus far all I have seen is a demonstration of politics among people who have no understanding on gangs and the problems that plague these communities while another family grieves the loss of a great son.

UPDATE: May 11, 2008
On another myspace http://www.myspace.com/185526611 page belonging to Jamiel, and last accessed on March 2, 2008, the day he was murdered, he makes some very interesting statements. He states:

“IM A TRU G ND U DONT NEED TA KNO DA ALPHABETS TA B – SABG!! WUT DO U TELL A BITcKH WIT 2 BLAcK EYEs……..NUTH N SMUG U ALREADY TWIcKE!! 30k..eK AIM TRAKKBOIZ”

Translation:

– “Tru G” means true gangster.
– “SABG” Second Avenue Blood Gang, a click of the Rollin 20s Bloods
– He spells the word “bitch” with a “K” after the “c” which is “cK” for Crip Killer. The letter “c” is also deliberately spelled in lowercase because this letter is synonymous with Crips. He spells the word “Black” and “twice” the same way.
– “30k” means 30s Crip killer, the main Crip rival of the Bloods in this neighborhood.
– Here is the irony, he writes “eK” meaning Eighteen Killer, a gang at war with the Bloods, and the same gang which Pedro Espinoza, Jamiel’s killer was from.

    Peace will be achieved the day our city representatives will understand that violence comes from ignorance and poverty. If more money was invested in education after school program, people from the inner city will come together.
    Police intervention doesn't always help it's still room for dialogue and understanding.
    I am myself working as a volunteer in an after school program in South central L.A ,http://www.apch.org , kids from different race and communities cohexist and things works fine.

  2. Josh

    you must be mexican illegal is illegal plain and simple

  3. WINEDOGG ..

    It is a real shame that things like this go down , but in Los Angeles gang violence has been a part of life and people get used to it in way that it really does not matter what happens out here they just take it and go on with life, it`s routine and it happens all day long it really hurt`s when it hit`s home then they understand there is a real problem in our street`s and want to do something about it when it `s to late , the problem should be dealt with at the source and that is the gang it`s self start from the core of the problem and deal with the issues these youngsters and grown folks go threw. lot`s of gang members don't know that there part of a gang till they leave there neighborhoods and go other places they think it is normal to were blue or red or represent were they are from lots of kids don't know what Disneyland is or better yet were it is located ask a kid from a broken home , the hood etc.. that question and see what he answers? it is hard to make other people who don't live in our communities understand that this is a way of life and it is much deeper than you would think . well the only solution for the problem`s on our streets is more money and get real people who care to administrate it in a fashion that will help ! not just to profit from our problem there are people who really don't know ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN THE INNER CITY BUT THEY GET MONEY TO HELP OUT A CAUSE THAT THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT AND USE THE FUNDINGS IN THE WRONG WAY, BECAUSE THEY ARE PROGRAMS OUT THERE TO HELP AND WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT ALL HELP AIN`T GOOD HELP IN OTHER WORD`S DON'T HELP BUT DON'T GET IN THE WAY OF PEOPLE WHO REALLY WANT TO HELP ..PEACE TO ALL LOS ANGELES GANG MEMBERS, TRY TO KEEP THA PEACE ….IT CAN HAPPEN … EAST SIDE WILMAS GANG ..

  4. jd80631

    Let me begin by saying you sent your article to me via spam. I still read it as I happen to supervise a large Gang Unit. Two things I would like to point out about your article;
    You trash this victim by insinuating he is a gang member. Then you try to come off as pious and not judging him, yet express your so called expert opinion that he would be clblankified as a gang member. You apparently do your expert testimony for any fly by night defense attorney willing to listen to your BS.

    If you knew what you were talking about you would know that the law requires that an individual must first meet the legal definition of a gang member. THEN that individual would have to be involved in a gang crime before he could be legally clblankified as a gang member. Since the victim in this case apparently does not meet the criteria he would not be clblankified by law enforcement as a gang member.

    In the future spam people who can read through your BS and recognize you as just that a BS artist trying to make a living off of victims.

  5. Trey626

    jd80631,
    You must "supervise" the most retarded gang unit on earth. Alex Alonso is right that the individual wouldn't necessarily need to have been arrested to be clblankified as a gang member in the gang database. That's true for injunctions and federal gang law. The LAPD enters gang affiliates in the data base for all of Shaw's Rollin 20's nhb gang, criminals or not.

    This is a great article though I wish Alex had spoken more about the irony that this profiling of black gang members like Jamiel Shaw that jd80631 finds so objectionable is exactly what the Shaws are planning for the Hispanics with Jamiel's Law. And Shaw took his affiliation too far, in my opinion.

  6. mr. Alonso never called Jamiel a gang member in the above article. I read it twice and he NEVER said that. Mario Rocha was convicted a committing a gang related crime and he never was even a gang member so I am sure that innocent kids are in the database.

  7. Trey626

    Read it ONE more time. Jamiel Shaw called HIMSELF a gang member and LAPD agreed. A B-Dog is a Blood. Jamiel Shaw called himself a Blood. That's a gang member. Unfortunately, he paid with his life. This is so tragic but it was gang retailation against another gang. It wasn't a hate crime and let's hope this article puts an end to the insanity of these trumped up hate crime charges by politicians who don't know about gangs.

  8. KayCee

    Just because he has a myspace and claiming to be a "B-Dog" and writing eK, cK and ect. doesn't mean he's a REAL Blood on the streets. Unfortunately there are a lot of kids that claim gangs on the net, but not on the street! It's called "net banging". Myspace can be dangerous for those kids whether they're real or fake claiming because they don't know who's browsing thru those myspace pages and we all know that gangs are going to look for their enemies online, so his page with his picture could have been seen online by a local rival 18th street gang member who decided to take it to the streets. Whether Jamiel was a gang member or not this is a TRAGIC thing that happened!

  9. Ms. DeeVeeAns

    Wow, what a thorough, comprehensive article THANK YOU, for pointing out the trigger happy police who can label anyone they want and then use that label to excuse their maltreatment of certain folks; for pointing out the multi-complex layers of community organizations that are inevitable and perhaps necessary to some degree, due to determinant socio-poli dynamics…..fascinating information…I will pblank around for sure. Oh and excuse those pontificating verbally-defecating white middle clblank fatheads…..they cannot help themselves being victims of their own ignorance.

  10. Ken

    From what I have heard, the DA has insinuated to Jamiels family that if they didn't back off their claim of a hate crime, that they would paint Jamiel as a gang member, or an blankociate. His father said he was a spiderman fan, so he had numerouse spiderman articles which are red. The powers that be are doing all they can to deny any brown on black murders as being race related. By painting Jamiel as a gang member blankociate, they can continue to ignore this fact, & deny any hate crime, blaming it on gangs.

  11. V.Riley

    That's very true, cuz when I was fighting a shooting case back in 2004, the police entered me into their gang database called "CALGANGS", and the detective got on the stand and admitted that I was entered into their database as a gang member, EVEN THO I NEVER ADMITTED GANG AFFILIATION TO THE POLICE!, what naive, weakminded people don't understand is that the police have the power to manipulate the paperwork, they can say and type anything IN FURTHERANCE of their mission to enforce the law, which means the police lie all the time, the district attorney also lied to the judge and said I admitted to being at the scene of the crime during the crime, when I clearly didn't, and the judge stopped that young liar D.A. in his tracks and refuted his claims, the bottom line, yes, what happened to Jamiel was tragic, but at the same time, he was no saint!, especially wearing a red belt, clearly identifying himself as a blood!, it doesn't matter if he for real or net bangin', if he was walkin' down the street wearin' that red belt, he was wearin' his "colors" for the hood!, bangin' bloods, bangin' on the streets too, when he said: "I'm lookin' for C-monstas to beat up"!

  12. Big Den

    Alonso is right about the gang file. I was put on gang file at 16 years old, because I was talking to a group of geng members when police swooped up and patted everybody down. They took ID's and wrote everybody up. This is a black man y'all. Hes just telling the truth. Jamiel may have not been a hardcore gang member but he was onviously "claiming the hood" and the other dude must have known about it. Good job on bringing clarity to the story although this will rub a lot of people the wrong way including myself. I have followed Alonso for a long time, and he is the one of the only people out there that has taken the gang situation and tried to create an intellegent and unbiased understanding of what it is. Gang involvement and membership always starts somewhere. Whether it be full bore or gradual.

    Alonso,
    I read a qoute from you about the clic I created in "Street Gang Patterns and Policies" on google books. You really do your homework, because I didnt know at the time that the impact of decisions made at such a young and uniformed age could make. Keep working, and trying to get those that dont understand the lifestyle to realize it is no different from the infighting and cultural divide we see in other countries.

  13. alsheikh971

    It's really sad that you ked someone just because you look like a rival gang-member. Retarded !
    Espinoza acted like cops act. They both consider you're in a gang because you know or look like a gang-member : it's called profiling. And in this case, even if it's not prolly race-related, Shaw is black and he knows some Bloods => He's a Blood. The result is a pure nightmare

  14. just another dead guy, who cares?

  15. Trey626

    Considering the young man's own statements, this wasn't profiling by the gang who shot him. He was claiming membership with the rival gang. A truce is needed. But all the hatred by groups who are using the grieving family and these haters care only about their own corrupted agendas.This article wisely points out that activists must get going with a truce.

  16. Trey626

    …my prayers are with the Shaw family but I hope Alonso's article convinces them to cut off these haters and start demanding the leaders broker a truce.

  17. Sad boy

    Another excellent article by Alonso. I was also saddened by the news of Jamiel's death, and went by the media's version of it. I believed Jamiel to be an innocent victim of a brutal racial k-ingg. While race may or may not have had something to do with it, Jamiel's blankociations definitely did. As Alonso points out though, living in those kinds of neighborhoods, it's impossible not to interact with the people you grow up with and live with, even if they are known gang members. This is purely guilt by blankociation, and sad nonetheless.

  18. SMQ

    This was a brutal murder and the whole country is moved to grief at the loss of Jamiel Shaw. But this cannot end if we allow the forces of hatred to rule.

    Please look up Walter Moore, who wrote Jamiel's Law. Where is the evidence that he and his affiliates care about young people in gangs? It was a terrible publicity stunt by some wanna be a mayor. Just another politician that sensationalized crime for his own ugly ends and took advantage of peoples fears.

  19. SenorGringoLoco

    I only had to read Alonzo's article once. Enough times to see two things. —1. Jamiel was murdered by an ILLEGAL ALIEN. —2. Not once did Alonzo agree that ILLEGAL ALIEN GANG MEMBERS should be run down and deported. — Irregardless of the fact whether Jamiel was a gang member or not and whether his murderer's motive was "gang related" or racial He is Illegally in our country. —Alonzo's article stinks and smells of defending illegal aliens whether gang members or not. —I am absolutely sickened by Alonzo's portrayal of Jamiel. Additionally, Alonzo bears no emphasis on how badly the plight of our South Los Angeles neighborhoods are affected by the rash of Illegal Aliens overtaking our communities. — Anyone from L.A., (any "home grown" legal residents) , sick enough yet of having to press 1 for English and seeing your street turn into Tijuana?

  20. SMQ

    OMG what hatred you spew? You latched on to this because you hate Latinos and now you have nowhere to go because Jamiel was ked because he was in a gang.

    Jamiel's murder had nothing to do with your "press 1 for English" so move along, sicko. You just proved how right perople are about complaining that hate groups used this grief-stricen family for their own hating agendas. Is this about Jamiel or yourself you home grown cracker jackblank.

  21. the silent MR .G

    IT IS BAD THAT HE DIED..BUT I LIVED THERE MANY YEARS IN A LIL TOWN CALLED BELL GARDENS AND THERE LOTS OF GANGS BACK THEN AND THERE WAS NO INNOCENTS.
    YOU WERE ONE BY blankOCIATION AND THAT IS THE SAME AS BEING ONE .. THERE IS A THIN LINE BETWEEN NON MEMEBERS AND MEMBERS SO YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHO YOU ARE SEEN WITH CAUSE IF YOUR FRIEND IS A MEMBER THEN YOU ARE AN blankOCIATE OF THAT GANG…. THEY DONT ASK FOR YOUR GANG MEMBER CARD WHEN THINGS GO BADD…….SILENT MR.G

  22. TheTruth

    Hey SMQ, I wouldn't blankume that SenorGringo is a white, or "cracker" as you put it. There are many black residents that have used this murder against Jamiel to further their anti-illegal agenda, which is fine. I think that there are strong points against illegal aliens, but as it relates to gangs in LA, the illegal alien argument is very weak. As weak as saying that Jamiel was ked over race – which we now know was not true.

  23. JDog

    Alex Alonso is a wealth of information for gang motives and activity. The more people like him working to shed light on the gangs and the reasons they do it and understanding and helping them find better outlets the quicker the gang issue will be rectified. You can just expect to stamp it out with by bullying them and having gang injunctions, that will just make them more determined.

  24. Sideshowbob

    I knew this kid Espinoza personally. He was in custody of the L.A. County probation department in early 2006 when i worked at Central Juvenile Hall. When i first found out that it was him who had committed this murder i never believed for a second that he solely targeted this kid because of his skin color..If you ever had a chance to talk to Pedro espinoza personally you would see a lost, heavily entrenched gangmember who had so much love for his gang and so much hatred for any Blood gangmember…I personally remember asking him why he liked gangbanging so much and the first he told me was the love he felt when he was in the hood, he stated " i get this feeling like damn just everybody is there etc…"…..i thought that was really fed up that this kid felt so much love from something so negative….anyway just thought i'd share my experience with you all…..I know this may sound a little fed up to hear but Epinoza, as i would call him, had respect for me always even though i was law enforcement the kid had respect ….but damn he had so much hatred for blood gangmembers it was scary….

  25. SMQ

    Sideshowbob
    Very interesting account of Espinoza and first we have describing him at all. Judging from Jamiel's My Space page that Alex Alonso has written about, I would have to say the feeling was mutual there. I'm even more convinced that someone has to reach out to both gangs and arrange for a truce. It can happen, it has happened before, and I hope it happens fast.

  26. R-Tistic

    I do know of a few youngsters, usually between ages 12-19, that will put up phrases and paragraphs that have gang-affliated writing in them on their Myspace pages, although they aren't official members. Some of them used to live in L.A., and moved somewhere else where nobody knows them and knows that they aren't legit…others who live in L.A. will do it because of who they grew up with, or grew up under.

    Most of them will do it because they think it's "cool" but they never realize how severe the consequences can be for doing that.

  27. JV

    There is no justification for murder.

  28. spanky

    I'd like to see a gang expert report on a family that has lived in a gang infested area and moved to a safer city, thus saving their family. Is it easy to just pick up and move? No. With serious perseverance, can it be done? Yes.

    Parents/guardians need to be more proactive by moving out of gang areas, any way possible. To a certain degree, we are all a product of our environment. Change the environment.

    Where there's a will there's a way.

  29. spanky

    JV sums it up perfectly.

  30. Homie, I was under the blankumption and belief that this dude was totally innocent.. but its apparrent that he was usuing the language of a b dawg and a proclaimed ck ek, the lapd didn't lump this dude with the 20's, he lumped himself with the 20s.

    If you are going to play the part, then you have to also be conscious of the consequences. When the 18's pulled up, he should have been more aware of the entire get down and how this could play out… dude got caught slippin wether he was bangin' or not.. banging is not something to play with, its worst than playing with matches.

    Its real out here in the field.

  31. Alejandro

    Florence … you couldn't be more right. Thank you for making your point. L.A. wants to lay off teachers and hire more guns. That's how L.A. does things. They keep the kids ignorant so they can shoot em up or lock em up. The politicians don't care, as long as they can collect their six figures.

    We should start asking ourselves who profits off of these two vulnerable groups going at each others throats.

    Vulnerable in the sense that these kids have plenty of socio-economic challenges already, not to mention the possibility of being gunned down.

    Josh … what does being Mexican have to do with anything? You sound like an insecure racist son of a chick.

    As long as ignorance runs ramped, the violence will not cease.

  32. The White Man Can Benefit From Education

    I'm gonna tell it like it is once and for all.

    I grew up in Pacoima, as a Latino living in a black neighborhood. My friends were mostly all black. A few streets down … there were Latinos.

    Sometimes, the racist Latinos that didn't like my black friends would fight with the racist blacks that didn't like me.

    But those of us that were in multi-cultural groups, remained friends regardless of the nonsense.

    One thing I have been able to take from all of this is the desire of middle-aged racist white men to rally both groups to continue going at each other's throats. Of course they would. Kanye said it best: "And a white man gets paid off of all of that."

    – Plain and simple

  33. AM2PM

    I'm having trouble with this article and don't understand your motivation for writing it. Simply put – your point isn't clear! You kinda jump around, and finish up the article essentially calling for a truce. Well – couldn't you have said that without providing the etymology and without reducing Jamiel to a "Gang Affiliate?"

    To "say without saying" that Jamiel Shaw is "Gang Affiliated (not to be confused with being an official gang member per-se)" and to justify the shooters motivation for pulling the trigger is the first main point you made in the article.

    In the same breath you flip the script and suggest that "ulterior motives" are the reasons that "Some" in the community inject a racial element into this controversy, and only do so for their own personal gain.

    You eventually summarize your article stating that the conflict which caused the shooting should be the public focus – a truce if you will… suggesting maybe that the public should sanction a party where one day 18th street and the Bloods in the area shake hands, get together & play Dominos, and forever live in harmony – cause if there is a truce, there will be no violencia!

    I might have missed something, but these appear to be your points. To this, my response:

    Jamiel's family would certainly know their son better than you or I, and your professional blankessment seems to be speaking way out of turn. What facts are you drawing this blankessment from other than his (so called) Myspace page? Couldn't you have based your arguments on other – more concrete factors? Better yet… how is it even relevant?

    Everyone in the community can appreciate your intensity and pblankion for chronicling street gangs, but my question to you is: How is your apparent agenda any different than anybody elses? You seem to have the need to prove to the community that immigration and Brown on Black violence aren't focuses. Can you justify that?

  34. SMQ

    I honestly cannot figure out what article you're reading, because this article is very clear. Jamiel Shaw was of good character but he was murdered in a gang on gang murder. It's a heinous murder, everyone agrees, and God willing this shooter is sent up for life. But it wasn't a racial attack.

    Please stop shooting the messengers, First it was the D.A. and now it's Mr. Alonso.While Jamiel Shaw wasn't a criminal, as this article makes very very clear, he engaged in dangerous behavior of threatening rival gangs and that got him ked.

    This took such an ugly turn. What is it now? Parents telling kids that they can Netbang as long as we pblank laws to harblank Hispanics?

    Where is the message that kids must stop the netbanging now? Instead of putting your energy into racially profiling Hispanics, start talking to kids about removing these dangerous My Space pages. Get LAPD and the schools to put out bulletins to inform parents.

    Ignoring the true facts of Jamiel Shaw's murder is just asking for more horrible endings. Please people, put the hating and differences aside, and work for the safety of the children.

    I just received your email, read the article and ALL of the comments. One of the comments stated that "There is no justification for murder." This is very true. Also, like the victim, I grew up in an area that is NOW clblankified as a heavy gang area. Yes, law enforcment DOES clblankify you as a gang member and/or blankociate if you are seen with other members. This is not always true. I grew up in the area, went to school with a lot of people, and yes some of them have become gang members. What, are we not supposed to speak and/or blankociate with people that we know because they are gang members? Our society is so twisted that they dont educate our children, give them options or resources. Its hard to raise a male child, whether Black or Latino, in an area that you can afford, which most often, gangs do live in, and make sure that that child grows up without any gang affiliation. Gangs are a part of our world, whether we like it or not. It does not matter what color you are. It is very sad that Jamiel was a victim to gang violence. But, we also need to look at how the media and others portray gangs. Even before Scarface, gangsters were portrayed as having all the women, power, money, respect and control over police officers. When they got ked, they were ked for something they believed in. Its the same mentality of gang members. They all want the same thing, in addition to the fact people want to belong to something where they are accepted for who they are. One of the comments made refered to broken homes. It is not always a broken home, it can be drugs (which the government put into our streets), no family, a person does not feel normal, other children teasing, poor and feel the need to make money, etc. I knew a guy, who was murdered, who joined a gang because 1) his mother and her sisters, were all on crack, his uncle was a thief, no where to live, and no money. Joining the gang eliminated a lot of problems for him. I am not trying to judge anyone, but there needs to be a better way for our children instead of death and jail.

    EVERYBODY IS MISSING THE POINT THE kER WAS HERE ILLEGALLY IF HE WOULD HAVE BEEN DEPORTED JAMIEL WOULD STILL BE ALIVE TODAY

  37. JoeyZ

    I don't believe it. Anyone says that doesn't know gangs. This was a major gang rivarly. From what I'm reading, sounds like the 18s had a hit out on Jamiel for his claiming the Bloods and disrespecting them in language he used. That don't make it right, but these kers sounded motivated and they find other kers. These are not the "nice" gang members like Alonso says. They're sick kers who want to wipe out rivals that disrespected them. So how do you predict what these murderous mad men would do if there weren't Espinoza to do it for them?

  38. Kelly

    Espinoza shot him in cold blood. He never saw Jamiel's myspace page! Sorry, he can't be that smart. And how did he know Jamiel was going to be walking by that time and day? Espinoza wanted to k someone, his target was not there, and Jamiel was innocent. Espinoza is satan and hopefully KARMA will bite his blank soon enough. RIP Jamiel!

  39. MARIA

    HI TO BEGIN WITH IF YOU DIDINT HAVE LEADERS WHO WERE INTO WARS AND WEAPENOS AND BUYING THE LATEST WEAPONS YOU WOULDINT HAVE IT. WHY YOU HAVE GANGS? I TELL YOU WHY. USA HAS MORE THAN ANYWERE ELSE VIOLANCE EVERYWERE YOU GO ON TV, MAGAZINES, GO TO THE MOVES, INTERNET, STREETS, EVERYWERE U GO AND YOU SELL GUNS EVERY WRERE U GO AND ITS SO EASY TO GET IT TO AND NOT TO MENTION DRUGS ALSO. AND USA HAS LOTS OF FREDOM.. IF YOU TAKE OUT SELLING THE WEAPONS THAT MAKE IT SO EASY FOR EVERYONE TO GET IT AND DRUGS ALSO MABYE YOU MIGHT GET SOMWERE. YOU CAN EVEN BUY WEAPONS ON THE ENTERNET AND DRUGS. AND LOTS OF VIOLANCE ON TV SO AS YOU SEE KIDS PEOPLE PERIOD SEE ALL THAT. AND THATS WHAT MAKES PEOPLE GET INTO TROUPLE AND GANGS. COPS ARE NOT EVEN BETTER THEY ARE VIOLANT TO DONT GET ME STARTED ON THEM I HAVE PLENTY TO SAY ABOUT THEM SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH I AM HISPANIC BUT YS I AM CITIZEN THANK YOU MARIA

  40. Leave Jamiel alone. Stop blogging about this when the REAL PROBLEM IS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS with GUNS. Not Black star athletes with NO CRIMINAL RECORD.
    Espinoza = illegal alien criminal
    Jamiel = star athlete no criminal record
    DON'T GET IT TWISTED!!
    Support JAMIELS LAW ! This sh*t has to end. Espinoza should have been sent back to Mexico!! Not set free to k.
    STICK TO THE REAL PROBLEM. The problem is not star athletes with no criminal record. NO. The problem is ILLEGAL's with GUNS.

  41. Eric

    Does anyone know how Jamal answered Espinoza and his crew? Is it a known fact that he claimed his neighborhood gang?

    Without this necessary knowledge, it is irresponsible to suggest that Jamal's gang affiliations (if any) supercede what appears to be a hate crime.

  42. Oz

    5/12/08

    Jamiel Sr. stated today that he heard Espinoza was a Puerto Rican……Puerto Ricans are legally in the U.S. so Jamiel Sr. needs to get the true facts before airing them on the radio so that innocent Puerto Ricans are not made targets.

  43. Dan

    Illegal's writting about illegals, that's all this article is.
    THIS MURDER WAS RACAL !

  44. Brian

    This article is disturbing because it tries to blame the victim. Jamiel was not a gang member and no one has produced any evidence that he was a gang member.

    This was a murder of a black child, plain and simple. Espinoza wanted to k a black kid and Jamiel was in his way.

    This tragedy is the fault of the illegal immigration enablers. How can anyone object to deporting illegal alien gang members?

    If you deported all the illegal alien gang member when they were arrested, Jamiel would be alive today.

  45. John Wan

    I wasn't going to get involved with this but now I'm going to donate heavily to the JAMIELS LAW project.

    This is nothing more than a cyber lynching of this poor kid by illegal immigrant supporters.

    Alex Alonso you just cut your own throat with your keyboard.

  46. taylor

    I was listening to Mr. Shaw Senior regarding his son. There are two issues involved. The act of Jamal's law which is imperative for another avenue to control and remove illegal immigrants. One could only pray it will work, but just like the immigration laws on the books it will be adjusted and changed to be ineffective. The second issue as one parent of a teen to another. Mr. Shaw Sr. should understand that he is likely not as informed as he would like to appear. Teenagers have a life that is secret from their parents no matter how bright of a future or how great of a kid they are. This is inherent for all teenagers from all generations. Mr. Shaw is a prime example of a parent with his head in the sand thinking his child was never blankoicated with anyone in a gang. I hope that parents take this situation and take a moment to check in with their childrens lives. The myspace page is just an example of what teens talk about without their parents knowledge. Parents can trust their children but should verify what is being said and where they are hanging out. The statement that Mr. Shaw made about knowing his son's friends and parents is naive. Friends of a child are little angels in front of other parents to avoid suspicion and other parents do not want to air their dirty laundry. It is sad that Mr. Shaw choses not to learn the truth but be defensive. Whether Jamal was affiliated with a gang or not does not detract from the parents desire for the new law, but it instills the idea that all teens are innocent. No matter how good of a parent reality is in today society it is difficult to keep up with your kid. Brainstorming of how to be involved or hear key statements that can bring a red flag up to be worried would be an awesome outcome of this situation.

  47. Rob

    An awesome outcome to this situation would be the repeal of special order 40.

  48. Efrin

    Alex Alonso is just another illegal immigrant supporter …

    He's getting too much publicity already …

  49. Mike

    Many of the responses here are simply idiotic. From the guy that calls you “homie” and says that Jamiel was “caught slippin” to Maria who declares in all capital letters that guns are bought on the “enternet”(sic.) and our leaders are “into” wars and weapons. I guess in the same way a teenage boy is into girls (What’s really scary is that, if she is what she claims, a citizen, then she has the right to vote *shudder*).

    The most idiotic of all though, are those that allege that Jamiel’s law is racist.

    I don’t care if he was a gang member, gang affiliate, or not, what matters to me is that he was ked by somebody that ought not to have been here to k him. This gang banger a day earlier was in custody and was simply released back onto the streets. Los Angeles has a crisis and the more gang members we can remove from the streets the safer we are. If that removal comes from education, incarceration, or deportation, the ultimate result is less gang members on the street which translates into safer streets. Who can argue against safer streets?

  50. Warren

    I find this whole conversation absolutely irrelevant. Why are we even concerning ourselves with the victim's supposed affiliations with a gang? As of any such affiliation justifies the murder of Jamiel!!

  51. Bruce

    What was he doing out of Jail…Federal and State Laws,,, says…a convicted Felon With A Firearm…is Mandatory 10 Years IN Prison….People…. Think…IT is not the lack of firearm laws…it is a lack of enforcement of them…. I am surprise that J&K haven't founded that out out yet….

  52. Jocky

    Yeah, Jamiel was a victim, but you can not play with fire.

  53. mike almeida

    points to make (by the way, i'm a 2nd-generation chicano, born and partly raised in the area near where MS started out):

    1. plenty of kids, including black kids, will act and talk "gangsta" online for chicks. why? because they see gang members getting alot of girls, so they figure… why not? plenty of girls in the ghetto like badblankes, including gang members. and how many of these kids listen to gangster rap? of course they're gonna mimic it, cite lyrics from it, etc.

    2. to call this a gang-on-gang crime is beyond ridiculous. there is no evidence that espinoza knew shaw before, knew about shaw's myspace, or about his affiliation with rival gang members. espinoza thought he was a gang member because of they way he looked and dressed… for example, wearing a red belt…. or, a belt with red on it (according to shaw's own father)… either way, to call a case of mistaken identity, gang-on-gang crime, really spits on the grave of jamiel shaw. that says that anyone who is black or latino, and might wear the "wrong" colors, or the "wrong" attire, is just asking to get shot anyways??? wow.

    3. was shaw blankociated with gangs? yes, and there is no escaping that being a black kid living in the ghettos of L.A.

    4. gang truces don't work, no matter how much money you throw at those symbolic pieces of garbage. gangs make their own truces, like "stay out of my territory, or you get banged on".

    5. why does alonso not cite his statistics on the percentage of illegal alien gang members? if it's from the county's numbers, they know that could never be entirely accurate.

    6. i read all these crazy comments like "18 st. had a hit on jamiel", or that the "LAPD knew that jamiel was a gang member". great stories. too bad they are all fairy tales.
    7. this whole article fails to address the real problem at the heart of this incident. that public officials let a criminal ILLEGAL alien gang member free, instead of checking his immigration status and handing him to immigration. we already have enough problems with our own gangs, why do we need to deal with even more gang members, who are here illegally? these communities don't need sham "truces" and "programs", they need jobs and steady police enforcement.

  54. T.D.

    As an American, who happens to be black and the mother of an 11 year old boy, I'd like to say that I am very disgusted with the race baiting that is going on here. The bottom line is that Jamiel was ked on the streets of L.A. Ironically, his mother was safer in Iraq than he was. The fact is that if Espinoza had been deported, he would have made his way back into the U.S., because this is the only country he knew. The U.S. government is not serious about closing the border, let's face it, so it's up to everyone of us to do whatever we can to live in safer neighborhoods and put our children into private or religious schools so that, hopefully, they are not "pressured" into blankociating with gang members. God Bless the Shaw family!

  55. AL

    Brian if this was in fact solely a racially motivated crime. Why bother asking Jamiel where he was from ?Why not just shoot him? Espinoza was looking for a blood plain and simple.I wonder if this crime is punishable by death. Its seems to me like it was premeditated.

  56. MARIA

    YOU STUPED MEN BLAIN THE IMIGRANTS IF IT WASINT FOR THEM WHO BY THE WAY WHO DO ALL THE WORK THAT YOU STUPED WHITE UGLY IGNORANT STUCK UP WHITE PEOPLE LAZY DONT DO THEY DO ALL THE WORK YOU DONT DO AND THEY DO WORK VERY HARD AND MANY FOR LITTLE OR NO MONEY.

  57. SMQ

    I believe that the person posting as "Maria" is a race baiter trying to make Hispanics look bad. This story gets sadder and I did not appreciate Mr. Shaw comments about Alex Alonso on the radio. It was divisive and not true. I'm sorry for Mr. Shaw's pain but he sounds more and more like Rush Limbaugh every day.

  58. MARIA

  61. T.D.

    Mr. Shaw,

    If you read this, please take my advice. Move out of your neighborhood! It's not safe and I know you're raising another boy. Learn from this horrendous crime and RUN. It's okay. For some reason, Black people think they have to live in "the hood". to be Black. You don't! I'm sure you'll be able to afford to live in a safer neighborhood. Perhaps, another state altogether, like Oregon or Idaho? JUST DO IT! Don't take another chance, it's not worth it. Good Luck.

  62. MARIA

    oh by the way dudes wich i think most of you guys are some women to i will be back again i wont say when i like to keep it like that. i am a fighter i am strong, not afraid to say anything even in person not afraid of men specialy men even men in uniforn like cops. i am strong cya MARIA

  63. Victor

    This is a tragedy. An unnecessary loss of life. The "Gang Element" in large cities is out of control. Mr. Alonzo not only simpathically seeks to "Explain" what gangs are all about, he also minumizes their distructiveness. An innocent man was put to death on a public street for no apparent reason than being black. Mr. Alonzo would rather point out that Shaw was mistaken as a Black Gangster. This is just political "Smoke and Mirrors." His vail attempt to disguise Mexican rascism against blacks is weak. This is a fact that exscapes you Mr. Alonzo, racism is alive and well in L.A. gangs. Both black and brown. Mr. Alonzo is simply adding a polictical component to the mix. It's so obvious that his view of what happened is slanted to his point of view. Unfortunatly in the process Mr. Alonzo misses the point. Big cities need to "Clean Up" the miss that gangs make in thier own nieghborhoods. The mayor and police need to get tough on these losers. It's time to get down to basics. Mr. Alonzo you're way, way off base.

  64. JoeyZ

    Jamiel Shaw Sr. crossed the line tonight with the remarks about Alex Alonso. He sounded horrible on that radio show, I don't even believe him anymore, and I don't know why we're excusing his racist remarks when we would not excuse it from any political figure. Political figures who wanted a wedge issue and a family who would go along with it sure got their way.

  65. RICKSONE818

    Thanks for putting the thruth out there. We werent going to hear about his gang ties on the news it was all about how dude was an illegal and just got out of jail. As for the FI cards, they are bullish!!!!! Just an excuse to take you info down and clblankify you. I know they had me from at least 3 different neighborhoods just becuase they harrblanked me while I was hanging out.

  66. Frank R

    Thanks for putting the truth out there Alex Alonso and so sorry they are trying to hurt you for it. This is an ugly campaign and it's so distressful to see the victim's family involved in this coverup that first took down a prosecutor and now is after you.

    Shaw did sound like Rush Limbaugh. More hate like this nobody needs. He should check it at the gate.

  67. VYJ

    I heard about this on the J&K show. Interesting article. If our leaders would enforce the laws on the books, crimes like this wouldn't happen. I'd like to see more proof that it was really Jamiel's Myspace page where those quotes came from. I've never had to live in a gang heavy neighborhood, but agree with the person who says Mr. Shaw should get out of there ASAP and move to Idaho or anywhere else. I don't understand why people don't just flee those types of neighborhoods. Illegal immigrants from Southern America have the sense to do so. That's not to say I approve of them being in this country, but they have the sense to move where their families can have a brighter future. Does anyone in these neighborhoods think they are providing a bright future for their children? No matter how good of a job you do, there will be other people who are threats .

    I think people like me (white middle clblank, not from 'hood) have a hard time understanding the mindset of people from the 'hood and gangs in general. People are murder'd every day, but not all of those k-inggs get the publicity of Jamiel Shaw. Understandable since it is a heart-breaking story.

  68. VYJ

    All that being said… Special Order 40 should be changed. Your article didn't make any comment regarding Jamiel's Law… but one would have to guess that removing even a minority fraction of gang-members would cause less gang violence. Since this is part of the story, I don't know why you did not choose to comment on it.

  69. SMQ

    I don't blame the Shaws for living in ther neighborhood. I give them all respect for that. I BLAME JAMIEL SHAW SENIOR FOR HIS RACIST REMARKS ABOUT ALEX ALONSO ON THAT RADIO SHOW.

    It was disgusting and now I wonder what length he will go to so as to stop the truth from getting out. Even J&K were not believing him to the max anymore.
    He had a good son but his son was with the Bloods in a strange way and more is coming out about it. It's dangerous behavior, he was a good person who deserved to live an enjoy his life, but slandering a good writer and gang expert will not change the tragic truth about the danger in the streets.

    I hear the LA Times is on it, as is CBS and the AP, thanks to Alex. So I say, stay strong and don't let the hating stop you from doing the good work.

  70. klomon

    DON IMUS WAS FIRED FOR SAYING LESS OFFENSIVE THINGS. I'M VERY SAD. THE HATE IS GETTING WORSE.

  71. JAY

    The story is really messed up, but everyone is just being racist. This crime was not racially motivated, it was a gang crime. I'm a 20 year old Mexican-American, raised in south central los angeles.I've seen many things that are racial, and many things that are gang related.I was encarcerated in 2005 to 2007,i was a friend of espinoza. He was a gang member,but not a racist. I also knew shaw,we went to school together.Shaw was a cool guy,but was from "Rollin' 20'S". i only can say this,"YOU LIVE BY THE GUN,YOU DIE BY THE GUN"

  72. JoeyZ

    To JAY who wrote:

    Shaw was a cool guy,but was from "Rollin' 20'S

    That is known on the streets and even by the Los Angeles District Attorney that was fired. Now, how to tell it to the Shaws so they stop their messed up campaign of racism that even extended to Alonso today? I was shocked at what Jamiel's father said. He's going further out there, saying Alex Alonso "trashed his son at the funeral" Who is getting him to say these things? Its just so so sad.

  73. Frank R

    THESE ARE TEH HATERS THAT CONTROL THE DEBATE NOW. LOOK AT THE UGLY NESS AND DECIDE PPLS

    Posted by Ernest, on 04-13-2008 11:52, Black Americans are being decimated out of Los Angeles! LAPD and the mainstream media are trying to push this off as an American Street gang problem. These are Hispanic Fascist Terrorist Illegal and legal Aliens that are being allowed to enter the U.S. by the gangs in our Federal government, local law enforcement and judicial system to run Blacks out of this country! This is being controlled and ordered by the biggest gang in the U.S., Skull and Bones! The Bush Family Regime and Skull & Bones have declared “Open Season” on all Black Americans! They are using foreigners and “no protection under any laws” by our law enforcement & judicial system to accomplish this! See more and what can be done about this at: http://www.forgottenamerica

  74. PSW

    So who paid off Alonso for writing this article? Someone from LA City Council?, Mayor Antonio? What won't they do to try to try to hide the truth. This was a hate crime caused by racial tension – brown on black. Plain and simple. Special Order 40 has to go. It only protects the illegals and allows them to carry on with their murderous rampage. If you care about LA's future, vote out the Mayor, and the city council. These fools are not leaders.

  75. VYJ

    I'm sorry, but there's no solid proof that Shaw was a gang member. Again, where is the proof this is his myspace page?

    If he was a gang member no doubt that would've been the story from the beginning. The media doesn't carry the water of those suspected of being in gangs, and they have access to sources with the gang database.

    Shaw is not in the database of known gang members!

  76. El Chile

    I've been following this story since it aired..I've lived in the early 80's to late 80'S IN SOUTH CENTRAL..as a kid I grew up getting beaten and robbed by black gangbangers, and non-afiliated black kids…not just me but my mom, sister, neighbors, friends..people that lives and lived there nows what i mean…. my point is that hispanics living in south central that got robbed and beaten have hatred towards them, and now alot of those kids grew old and joined a gang do remember what they and their people went tru..and now defenely would not put up with any blacks trying to robbed or harrased their people speacially in their neighborhood,… This case has nothing to do with Illegal aliens…it has to do with gangs along with the hatred inside of them.. I trully belived that this crime had to do with race along with gang affiliation….I lived in S-Central and i remember kids claiming to be from a gang witch there werent they just like the idea but a lot of them were stright A's students..its true when you live in a area with gangs u are part of them if you say you are or claim iven if your not……………….. O'relly, John and Ken used this CASE to express their negatively towards the Illegal people living/working in the USA !!!! the reason im saying O'relly, John and Ken is because everytime they hear an illegal ked someone.. they just dont stop talking about it…all they say is Illegal aliens illegal aliens..they just go and go and go…wazz up with this guys..

  77. JAY

    The media is just blowing this out of proportion. jamiel's father Mr.Shaw, come on like i said i knew his son, the guy is a racist. it sounds really messed up but people die everyday. thats the way life is. why isnt bill o'reily headlining the story at locke high. the riot that just took place where a "mob" of black males attack a latino student. WHY? its cause we're the illegal aliens.its just messed up. we have too overcome this madness!-JAY

  78. Frank R

    I didn't know Jamiel and it seems he was a wonderful gifted person. But Mr. Shaw sounded very racist tonight. I felt even John & Ken were put off by Mr. Shaw's slurs against the Hispanics with the hate he put on Alex's being Puerto Rican. I don't know what race Alex is but I know he gave Jamiel more respect by far than Mr. Shaw gave back.

    This article was more than kind about Jamiel He was 20s and wore the belt that proved it with the red and the shout. Mr. Shaw knows how his son was. Didn't think so but now I'm sure.

    He has the right to mourn and promote Jamiel's good points but not to slur every person, like Alex and the DA, that told the truth. Jamiel had put out the 20s and terrible truth was it got him ked.

  79. BIG J

    FIRST THING MARIA NEEDS TO GO TO SCHOOL BECAUSE SHE DOES NOT SPELL TO GOOD BUT ANYWAY THE kER WAS AN ILLEGAL NOW WE HAVE TO PAY TO HOUSE HIM FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE ARE GOVERNMENT NEED TO STEP UP AND DEPORT ANYBODY THAT IS HERE ILLEGALLY BECAUSE IT IS COSTING TAX PAYERS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR THERE MEDICAL AND THEY CANT PAY TAXES AND IF WE AS AMERICANS DONT BE CAREFUL VERY ELECTED OFFICIAL WILL BE HESPANIC JUST DO ME A FAVOR WALK IN ANY STORE IN AMERICA AND JUST LOOK WHO WORKS THERE AND LISTEN TO THE LANGUAGE THE OTHER DAY I THOUGHT I WAS IN MEXICO EVERYBODY WAS SPEAKING SPANISH IF WE DONT START TEACHING OUR CHILDREN TO BE LAW MAKERS POLICE OFFICERS PEOPLE THAT MAKE A DIFFERENT WE ARE GOING TO LOSE .

  80. spanky

    BIG J……when you live in a glblank house, don't throw stones.

  81. FED-UP

    Jamiel Shaw was MURDERED by an illegal alien. His murder would NOT have occurred had this illegal been deported. These are the facts. We have a city whose leaders: Mayor Tony Villar, Chief Bratton, Rocky Delgadillo, LA City Council,etc., are FAILURES AND INCOMPETENTS. Los Angeles is a dangerous city to live and work in. We need ZERO TOLERANCE for GANG TRASH, and if necessary, the National Guard should be called in to patrol gang-infested neighborhoods. Pblank JAMIEL'S LAW NOW.

  82. 62 YR OLD GRANDMOTHER

    Are you going to tell me that Espinoza read Jamiel's MySpace page before shooting him to death? Hell No.
    Mr. Shaw also said that his son's belt was not visible to Espinoza. His backpack is a "childs" backpack sold everywhere.
    No No No This was clearly a HATE CRIME !!!!
    Mr. Shaw is correct, the District Attorney is looking, for some strange reason, for an excuse for that criminal.

    And another thing, it is true – the police will write you up as a gang blankociate/member because THEY THINK you are!!!

  83. JoeyZ

    It's likely others from 18 Street read the myspace page and or saw Jamiel in the neighborhood around school and knew he was with the Bloods. Espinoza could have been the one that shot, but someone in the car could have pointed out Jamiel. Jamiel even wore the Bloods wristbands.

    I agree it doesn't make him a criminal but if we're talking about how he got ked, the rational argument is that he was ked for flashing signs and colors.

    Shaw admitted it was his son't myspace page but said Jamiel was flashing peace signs. Don't know anyone that would believe that. He's flashing the sign for his gang, the 20s.

    Their messing up the story now and I agree that its not fair what they did to Alonso. But some parents can't accept what their children are getting up to. And he must really want this law named after Jamiel, which is only natural, though to me it's a hater's law .

    With the facts coming out in the court, and more newspapers, Mr Shaw will have to accept the truth. He can't keep slandering every person who's speaking the truth. Soon that will just reflect badly on him.

  84. MARIA

  86. 62 YR OLD GRANDMOTHER

    So gang members obey their parents, get good grades, receive college scholarships, do NOT own a gun, have never ked anyone and are NOT on the police roster of gang members?

    REALLY!!!!

    Jamiel Shaw Jr. was NOT a gang member.

    Of course he had to talk and appear friendly to those in his neighborhood (to keep them off his butt). I would do the same and you better not ever label me a gang member !!!

    I think it is disgraceful to his memory to put that young man in the same catagory with
    those gangs. Terrible !!!!

  87. 62 YR OLD GRANDMOTHER

    YES, YES, YES FOR JAMIEL'S LAW

    A THOUSAND TIMES YES !!!!!

    THE SOONER THE BETTER !!

  88. SMQ

    The young man unfortunately put himself in that category with the gang. That became clear with this thoughtful article and the writer, who was delicate, I think, when explaining it shouldn't smear the young man's memory.

    Now this smoke and mirrors about the young man's memory is emotional blackmail now, just to advance Jamiel's Law. The family is free to do that but they fail to convince by slandering prosecutors and making racist remarks about a gang expert like Alex when Alex was most respectful about then and their son.

  89. GET REAL

    If Jamiel was wearing the colors and falsely claiming to a blood, that would make him a target not only to hispanic and crip gang members but also to REAL blood gang members. For those of you that think it was racial, let's test your theory. go stand infront of jamiel's house wearing a blue bandana, blue belt and blue shoes. I'll bet it wont be long before you get shot at, regardless of your race! Illegal imigration and gangs are two totally separate issues that need to be addresses as such. Espinoza was not a gang member when he arrived in this country at the age of four, he was produced by this nation just like all the U.S. citizen gang bangers of other races. He should be prosecuted and never see the light of day for commiting a murder, not for being an illegal allien.

  90. Common Sense

    I want to thank John and Ken, Bill O'Reilly and Doug McIntyre for keeping the memory of Jamiel Shaw II's murder by an illegal alien gangmember alive in the media. It's only through such efforts that we'll be able to prevail in pblanking Jamiel's Law, and in permanently changing Special Order 40 (if we can't eliminate it). But much more needs to be done. We need to stop tolerating and putting up with gang crime no matter what the ethnicity or race. And yes, we CAN and SHOULD ARREST gangmembers –they need to know there are dire consequences for illegal activity and blankociations. All parents should cooperate with the police and school authorities. Jamiel Shaw is a role model for what a good parent should be, and we owe him a vote of thanks for all he's trying to do.

    John & Ken, O'reilly, Lou Dubbs and Dough Mclintyre..this racist people need to stop instigating or fuiling black people towards Illegal immigrants and mexican people.I say mexicans because that how this people picture us..not central, south americans but mexicans….I think that their favorite topic is when a Illegal person ked someone..Non stop talking about it……………I heard Mr Shaw on Kfi he really sounded racist…like i said it before blacks and hispanics living in s-central and other towns have hatred inside them..(Racism needs to be stoped)

  95. El Chile

    Mr Alonso really does his homework!!

  96. laureen

    El Chile I agree about that.Mr Shaw really sounded racist on KFI and the peeps working with him sound really racist.Maybe Mr Shaw didn't know his son was a banger?IMO because the gang hater mentality maybe don't look as bad to him as to us?He's with the ones that say this country is their turf and everybody else get out.IMO those kinds of haters sound like the gangs.

  97. dogg91702

  101. Placido

    First and foremost, my condolensces to the families of Jamiel Shaw and Pedro Espinoza. What happen to Jamiel is terrible, regardless to his, or the suspects race.

    Let me add I think Alex wrote a good piece and was trying to be as neutral and sensitive as possible. Not an easy task when considering all the emotions involved.

    For the record, you don't have to be a criminal to be a gang member, although the two tend to be parallel paths which eventually merge. Jamiel being a gang member doesn't justify his murder, but it changes the motive. IT WAS CRUEL AND UNFORTUNATE!!!! But you can't change the shape of a motive so that it fits within the realm of your political views.

    Is it a coincidence that he was ked by someone from 18st when Jamiel's myspace had the symbol for "eighteen street ker" posted on it?

    Is it a coincidence he was wearing red in a notorious blood neighborhood?

    Is it a coincidence the blood set he was repping on his myspace, happen to be the same blood set he lived in, the same blood set that was beefing with 18st, where he was wearing red and eventually was murdered?

    It's all unfortunate….VERY UNFORTUNATE….but not a coincidence and not racial.

    Illegal Immigrantion??? That's a different problem all together -And while I appreciate the vigor to solve "brown on black" or "black on brown" violence, I fear you guys are wasting your efforts….searching for daylight at the bottom of the ocean.

    Is it a coincidence that blacks and latinos in middle clblank communities and up, seem to coexist rahter seamless?

    Here is yet another 18th street gang member who has a song in spanish about mexican culture and starting a gang revolucion.

    It looks like Alex Alonso does not know what he talking about when he says very few 18th street gang members are from mexico.

    I am finding hunderds of 18th street gang members sites with mention of mexico.

    This site has 18tst gang, Hecho En Mexico, Aztlan pictures and a revolutionary song.

    Alex Alonso better search 18th strret gang members MySpace accounts to see how wrong he is, when he says very few 18th street gang members are immigrants.

  103. GRAPE STREET MY ASS

    THAT PROVES NOTHING BUT THAT YOU HATE HISPANICS AND NEED TO SEEK HELP FOR YOUR ANGER.

  104. SMQ

    I hope Jamiel Shaw Sr. apologizes for the racist remarks about this fine writer. It's okay for him to disagree with it but it was inapproriate for the comment that was made. The white haters are using this family in an unattractive way and let's pray they wake up before causing real hate damage in LA. Life is tough enough for the have nots without having politicians pitting neighbor against neighbor, race against race.

  105. One Nation

    bIG up to the Crips for they have kept it quiet respeCtful and tolerant even with the disrespeCt and crazy threats on the My SpaCe by this "Child". Someone please go to this neighood immediately, quiet the haters, and work for the peaCe like Alex says. Arlington Heights has enough of the haters. They need peaCe and they need it now. And don't have no false Gods afore me. Jamiel wasn't a saint nor sinner but get the peaCe. He wasn't about it but let this be our lesson. We must all live together and not let anyone tear us apart.

  106. SIdeshowbob

    Look i said it before…..I knew this kid for about 3-4 months working at CJH…He was not a rascist…..He had a deep hatred for any Blood gang member. I remember seeing his eyes light up and heart race at the sight of any Blood gang member, full fledged or not, he would turn into a monster….Fact of the matter is that he loved his neighborhood so much that he was willing to k for them…. that is one of the sadder points of this story….not to take away from Jamiel's murder which is truly sad because he sounds like a good kid just trying to be down and i would say that about 20%-30% of minors, if not more, in custody of L.A. County Probation Dept are just like Jamiel, just affilates….Bottom line, right or wrong, Espinoza was not out looking to gun down a "star athlete" he was looking for a "Blood" .It's reality gangbanging is not to be taken lightly especially in heavy gang territories. Dont make this a racial murder….and on him being illegal at 4 years old you go where your parents tell to go.

  107. Mike

    What I am reading on this board is sorrow for the family of Jamiel. I’m guessing that most everybody here, if they could, would bring him back. What amazes me is the lack of this simple logical conclusion. Pedro Espinoza was in this country illegally and subject to deportation. Had he been deported, he would not have been in Arlington Heights to murder Jamiel Shaw. Since nobody can change what happened, all we can do is look towards the future to prevent this from happening again. How do we do this? Simple, we remove illegal alien gang members before they are able to commit crimes against American citizens. If we do this, the lives of future Jamiel Shaws may be spared.

    This issue is linked to the debate on illegal immigration in that it is an example of a preventable crime committed by an illegal alien. To take a position that he should not have been deported is ridiculous. Of all of the arguments advocating open boarders (eg jobs people don’t want, compblankion for those trying to make a better life for their family, etc) none argue that foreign nationals should be allowed to come here and engage in criminal activity, or be a member of a criminal gang. He was not in the fields picking fruit, or cleaning toilets, he was in and out of jail and gang banging on the streets. Do we want people here gang banging? Of course not! So to get them off the streets we should do everything we can. Everything we can includes the deportation of illegal alien gang members.

    We have criminal gangs in this Country which are comprised of American citizens. These members we cannot deport. Those that we can, we should. For every one illegal alien gang member scooped off of the street and deported is one less criminal committing crimes. If the removal of an illegal alien gang member prevents only one murder, one rape, one burglary, one theft, or one act of vandalism, it is well worth it. Now imagine the removal of thousands.

    This action does not eliminate gangs, but it will reduce their numbers.

UP AND YOU KNOW IT HAVE SO MUCH CRIMES AND ITS FROM ALL AMERICAN HAVING TO MUCH CRIME AND DRUGS FROM AMERICANS AND YOU KNOW IT SO STOP BLAINING OTHER COUNTRYS AND ACT LIKE A MAN AND ADMIT IT OKMARIA

  110. JoeyZ

    That is an oversimplification of the problem to say if Espinoza was deported everything would be fine. Jamiel Shaw II made threats to rival gangs especially Cs. They could have got him, too.

    I agree with the person who says the Cs get respect for staying calm listening to some crazies who want to name a law after a Blood who threatened Cs and Es. That's crazy talk, taking sides with one gang over the other and honoring a Blood who got ked for being a Blood.

    Yes, everyone here would love to bring Jamiel back, and tell him you just can't act like that on My Space or in the neighborhood. There are those of us who live in the real world and know his own behavior brought this on. We have to wait for the court information before making a rush to judgment about deporting everybody just because Jamiel put out crazy talk that the Es took seriously and it got himself ked.

  111. MARIA

    HI BY THE WAY I LIVED IN OTHER COUNTRYS TO I WAS BORN IN SOUTH AMERICA TRAVELD ALL AROUND SOUTH CENTRAL AMERICA LIVED IN SPAIN 9 YEARS AND TRAVELD ALL OVER SPAIN LIVED IN HAWAII ILANDS OVER 10 YEARS USA MORE THAN THAT ALSO MY PARENTS FROM CHILE GERMANY AND ITALIAN ALL FIRST GENERATION I SPEAK SPANISH LIVED IN MANY PLACES IN USA SEEN ALOT HEAR ALOT BEEN THROUGH ALOT MY FAMILY ALL HAVE MANY RELIGIONS , RACES , COLORS WANT MOREOH ONE MORE THING WHEN I LIVED IN SPAIN CANARY ILANDS THEY ARE NEXT TO AFRICA SO MANY AFRICANS COME TO CANARY ILANDS SO I GOT TO MEET MANY AFRICANS PEOPLE AND HOW THEY ARE HOW THEY LIVE AND WHAT THEY ARE ALL ABOUT THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE HARD WORKING PEOPLE THEY KNOW MANY LANGUAGES IN AFRICA THEY CAN HAVE MANY WIFES TO ALSO IN SPAIN THEY HAVE PEOPLE FOM OTHER COUNTREYS .

BUT YOU GUYS AMERICANS ARE SO VERY MEAN AND SPOILED DONT CARE ABOUT NO ONE I DONT THINK YOU GUYS NO THE MEANING ABOUT CARING OR WELCOMING WITH OPENING ARMS DO YOU? MARIA

  113. Pete

    To Maria.

    You were welcomed here and given citizenship and you're an idiot. How you can you say this Country isn't welcoming?

  114. Cheri

    Maria. Every person who bypblanked the legal and proper process to enter or stay in this country has broken the law of the United States and is therefore a criminal.
    By this statement of fact, ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE CRIMINALS. All persons who are here in the U.S. illegally are subject to deportation according to our law.

    Those persons who follow the process, who wait their turn, who enter this country the proper way are welcome to join in this American dream. They are welcome to work toward citizenship.

    There are reasons we have these immigration laws. They exist to protect the citizens of this country from disease. They exist to stem the flow to a manageable level and allow a better blankimilation. They exist so we may decide who enters for the betterment of our society (education/potential for contribution). and the list goes on…

    I don't blame anyone for wishing the best possible life for themselves..I do believe the United States is the place to have such a life. If a person is not so lucky to have been born to this right, then they must follow the process to come here.

    The big point many are making is that this person, Espinoza, should have been deported from this country once he had been identified as being here illegally. Better yet, he should not have been here at all.

    We, the citizens of the United States, are not perfect, but we do our best to take care of our citizens. Our standard of living and quality of life are quite good. The burden of protecting citizens, enforcing laws, providing services to the people is made more challenging by having to additionally manage the enormous Illegal population, all of whom are criminal by their very presence in this country..

  115. FrankR

    What are we talking about here? We got a kid that was banging up against Crips, 18 Street. A good kid but he made rash stupid claims to the other gangs and it got him ked. That's sad and no disrespect to his memory, but it's the reality of how he died. No point in lying about it anymore.

    So the new hater idea to stop the k-ingg is make a law against all Hispanics for Bloods that puts up top this kid's gang. Then the kid's father goes on the air with this bad plan and puts the hate on Puerto Ricans. And this is how they think the k-ingg's gonna stop? This is a bunch of crap.

  116. JoeyZ

    They can call it the "When Good Kids And Dumb Adults Make Bad Choices Law"

  117. Mike

    Maybe somebody could help me understand. Why should the United States NOT deport illegal alien gang members?

  118. El chile

    This is a race war..i mean the white people are realizing that the us is getting populated by LATINOS..and there using the media to alert the goverment and black people to unit with them to stop the invation like they call it…for example Mr. O'reilly ,John and ken and Lou dobbs..As soon and there hear that a latino ked someone right away they ask "is it an Illegal Alien"..Its is'.. ohhh my god!.. Hell breaks Loose….thats what i seen and head..those are the real racist!..If you wanna see what im talking about and decide if im right go to (YOUTUBE) O'Reilly vs Geraldo Rivera..see it and reply…

  119. STOP THE BS

    DEPORT ILLEGAL ALIEN GANG TRASH! HUNT DOWN, ARREST, IMPRISON, EXECUTE ALL OTHER GANG TRASH! WE WANT OUR NEIGHBORHOODS BACK! CHIEF BRATTON, ICE, DO YOUR JOBS!

  122. Tracii

    Mike,

    Gangs are gangs. Immigration is immigration. You can't stick them together and make things up about a murder to get over on people, cause folks aren't stupid like that.

    Jamiel would be alive today if he wasn't banging. That's a hard thing for his father to accept but the longer he says no the more it looks like he just wants to hate on the Latinos. Even if Espinoza was gone there was still a lot of dudes that took insult at Jamiel's banging.

    It wasn't just he was wearing colors and throwing 20s. Jamiel was insulting the other gangs and that isn't healthy in a hard gang hood in Los Angeles.

    So own up to the true and then see who cares about your deporting illegals. To me, it seems that folks don't like being lied to and if they got with you and then found out you lied, you lost them for real.

  123. MARIA

    learn from other countrys usa might mature might stop so much violance amerincas need to stop using the guns , drugs and hiting women stop blaiming other countrys for your faults. you cant take l like a man? mmabye not. besides how about when you americans enter other countreys and live there how u think they feel? well? u think they like it because you are a american and white i dont think so some countrys dont even like americans to begin with so there maria

  125. Keith

    The success of this Country comes from the decisions and sacrifices made by mostly White people. This is not to diminish the contributions of other races, but the truth is that those past decisions and sacrifices were what got us to where we are today. This was done by mostly White Americans. That is the reality. It may be that way because we were intolerant of other races fighting in our wars or holding public office, but we are still where we are because of those before us who were mostly White.

    What is wrong with the decedents of those Americans wanting to maintain the integrity of this nation? What’s wrong with them wanting to maintain their language and their culture and their way of life? Their forefathers fought and died to give us what we have today. Shouldn’t their children be allowed to enjoy the country their forefathers built?

    With millions upon millions of South Americans illegally entering this country this is threatened. In many areas of California the landscape, language, culture and way of life are more similar to Latin America then to the U.S.. Mexico did not make the U.S. what it is, Mexico made Mexico what it is. It is unfair to supplant Mexico’s citizenry into this country instead of owning up to the responsibility it owes to it’s people by providing for them as the U.S. did.

    This country has been enormously generous when it comes to allowing people to immigrate here. But that generosity seems unappreciated by so many who “demand” citizenship be bestowed upon those that decided they wanted to live here instead of applying and getting permission. It is this Nations right to decide how many foreign born people can come here. It is also it’s right to allow nobody to come here should it choose. To circumvent this is to violate the law and violation of the law results in punishment. What is disappointing is the lack of respect these people have for a Country they allegedly wish to be a citizen of.

    This is probably not the proper forum to express this view, but I figured it is as good as any.

    And for those that will immediately condemn this post as racist let me tell you that racism is a hate that one has. I do not hate any group or race of people. I simply want America to remain America and want to enjoy the Country my forefathers died to create.

  126. El Chile

    I do agree that undocumented criminals should be deported right away!But not to instigate the Goverment and Black people with their negative towards all Undocumented people living in the US…The majority of undocumented immigrants here in the US work so hard and get paid so little…they do deserve respect!!..just like all the Immigrants back in the ealry 1900's……..Jamil did get k over what he apearent to be but wasen't…Mr Shaw intead of cursing and expresing racist remarks about Illegal Aliens he should mourne his son and accept that the fact that his son took a wrong turn with the lights off!!…

  127. El chile

    Mr Keith you are absolutly Right!! but you have to see it this way..The US was built by the World..(Immigrants) and STILL GETTING BUILT by the world..but now the majority of people are Latins and the only problem is that racist people dont like that…..and they try to use every way to stop it..Just ACCEPT IT..those are the facts…. ………….US has a long long way to go……..

  128. Cheri

    El Chile. We all work hard and want more pay. That doesn't mean that a person breaking our laws by being in our country without our permission deserves anything but a one way ticket home, billed to their home country.

    Those immigrants who came in the early 1900's who came here legally do deserve respect. People who have come to this country properly, following our process do also deserve respect.

    We cannot reward criminal behavior.

    Our law enforcement resources would be better used if they didn't have to contend with the additional burden of people who aren't supposed to be here in the first place.

  129. El chile

    Yes back in the 1900's every one jumped in the wagon speacially the poor, the criminals, not to mention the ivaders from taxation..what are the differences from today!!?????

  130. Cheri

    Being a criminal today is just as wrong as being a criminal at any other time in history.

    Wrong is wrong.

    This country established laws managing immigration. Anyone breaking the immigration laws is considered criminal.

    Anyone breaking any other law in this country is also considered criminal.

    Why do you find this so difficult to understand?

    If I enter your house without your permission and use your phone, bathtub, eat your food and take a band-aid from your first aid kit, but I fix your furnace and the lock I broke before I leave, I have still broken the law.

  131. MES

    I had good friends who were Bloods growing up. They did a lot for me (protecting me on the street, etc.) and yes i was aware of some of the "things" they personally did, but I never broke the law with them.

    Did I occasionally say or do minor things (slang, clothing, etc.) that would be considered affiliation on the street? Of course.

    The point is I wasn't a menace I just supported my friends who showed me love.

    If we had myspace back then I easily would have written a myspace message similar to Jamiel's. Would I have really ked a rival gang member? NO!

    SO let's leave the simplistic analysis alone. Alex Alonso you are great at what you do but this was a low blow because you know that there is no way the ker read his myspace and ked him because of that. You are better than that.

    Also when latino gangbangers ask you "where you from?" THEY DON'T WAIT FOR AN ANSWER AND REALLY DON'T CARE WHAT YOUR ANSWER IS. Getting banged on isn't a test with a right answer!

    So let's cut the crap about Jamiel bringin this on himself. COLD BLOODED MURDER is COLD BLOODED MURDER.

    By the way, I'm now a lawyer.

  132. BIG J

    YOU KNOW WHATS FUNNY ALL THE ATTENTION IS ON BLACKS AND MEXICANS AND WE ARE FORGETTING ABOUT THE KLU KLUX KLAN YES THEY STILL EXIST BUT THEY ARE SMART THEY GET PERMITS FOR RALLIES AND MEETINGS AND THEY ARE JUST WAITING FOR US TO k EACH OTHER ARE WAIT UNTIL WE ARE ALL LOCKED UP AND THEN WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO BUT WE ALL NEED TO REMEMBER A LIFE WAS TAKEN HOW DO WE FIX THE SITUATION ARGUEING ONLY FUEL THE FIRE .

    you have a point there…if a guy breaks in your house the first thing youre going to do is to call the police or shoot him..you see now thats your mentality…do you know who says that also THE MINUTE MEN..if they come in illegaly there coming inside my house…I will call immigration or shoot them!!…have you seen the movie GANGS OF NEW YORK..racism and a corrupt goverment..come on we now live in the 21century…………….Back then people had a easy access regarless of nationality…now that the US is fully built and stable, greety, racist people dont want anyone anymore.specially latinos……..But the goverment still wants illegal immigrants to come and work the jobs that no US people dont want..they are trying to give temp jobs to undocumented people…..there want to use this to calm the US racist people down..When i was stationed in san diego guess who pick up all the vegetables to feed the marines and navy sailors undocumented people..everyone knew ..but no one said anything..when ever u drive and see people picking crops…guess if they have legal documents?????????..

  136. Mike

    El Chile, I felt you were engaging in thoughtful debate until you start accusing all that want immigration laws enforced of being racist. First of all let me explain to you that it is NOT the Government that wants illegal immigrants to come and work the jobs. If it were, then the law would be changed so that immigrants could come here and no longer be illegal. It is also not “greety, racist people dont want anyone anymore.specially latinos”(sic.). If that were the case we would not let hundreds of thousands of LEGAL immigrants in every year. The minutemen have not shot anybody, but they, like every American, have a right to defendant themselves. There is nothing wrong with that just as there is nothing wrong with alerting the authorities of a crime being committed, be that a break in at your house, my house or our Country. And if you are really using a Hollywood movie and presenting it as fact, you should have your head examined.

    And one other point I want to clarify. When you were at Camp Pendleton I wonder if the workers in field you saw were working for Singh & Sons (http://www.icirr.org/storie…). If they were they were not illegal.

  137. Cheri

    We all have a right to protect our home, our livelihood and our life. Our laws support that purpose.

    The laws are our societal framework.

    Restating: If anyone breaks the law by entering without permission, punishment is warranted. — Beginning with expulsion from my house.

  138. laureen

    Oh so you want to get rid of all the immigrants.What happened to your illegal gang bangers argument?Went up in smoke with the facts that this was another gang k-ingg.And now you're out where you should be, as a racist.Stop using Jamiel's death as an excuse for what you're real thing is cause he was ked for being a Blood by an 18.You want to kick them all out and that's all you're about.

  139. Cheri

    Please read closely.

    Illegal immigrants…those who break the law by being here…those who ignored the immigration process and are in this country without permission should be sent home. Every last one.

    Those who follow the process, get in line, are identified, screened, then earn legal entry and don't break laws are quite welcome here and make this country even better.

    Please distinguish between the two groups. There is a HUGE difference.

  140. Pete

    Laureen
    Dumb, dummy, dunce! Nobody wants to get rid of "all the immigrants" nor can anybody infer that from what is written here. There is a major distinction between immigrant and illegal immigrant, just as there is a distinction between an invited guest and a burglar.

    If you are too stupid to comprehend what is being exchanged here maybe you should log off the computer and read a book.

  142. D.T.

    Keith,
    Do you think stolen African slaves made any "sacrifices"? Or just "your ancestors"? Are you REALLY so ignorant as to not know that Black Americans, enslaved and freed, fought and continue to fight in every single war this country has engaged in, including the American Revolution War of 1776? By the way, if you're willing to take "credit" for the legacy of your ancestors, does that include being willing to pay reparations to the ancestors of slaves, after all, if you get to benefit from the decisions made by your ancestors, I should benefit from the forced labor of mine. I'm sure you agree, right?

  143. El chile

    So why is John and Ken, Mr. O'reilly, Lou Dubbs favorite topic????..an Illegal Alien ks a good gifted, innocent person..again!..how come when a black or white ks an innocent mexican or hispanic person doesnt bring that much media….think about it…whats going on??????

  144. Philip

    D.T.
    You reap the reward by having American citizenship. All our ancestors had it hard. If your ancestors hadn't endured and survived, you may not be here in the United States as a citizen.
    Our ancestors gave this to us by becoming citizens in the first place.

    Would you rather have been born in the country of your ancestors? Never knowing what it is like to be an American citizen? If slavery never existed, there is a high probability that you would not exist either. And if your parents would have been born and then met, and then if you were born…on what continent would that have been?

    Is that the life you would have wished for yourself?

    Beyond that…who would provide reparations to your ancestors? The common plea is reparations to the descendants.

    You're lucky you are American…What if your ancestors were left behind and never taken to this country/? What if they lived their lives in the Darfur area…their descendants…YOU may have been born in Darfur…

    Be grateful you are an AMerican and appreciate the fact that your great great grandparents endured and prospered enough to bear children in this country.

  145. laureen

    You look STUPID Cheri and all of you who support Jamiels Law because you're angry racists.Now you got nothing because his gang ties ruin your law.You think you got people saying it's a good law that's for the Bloods.That's what these racists care about and now they look so stupid for blaming immigration when it was Jamiel's Bloods claiming and reppin' Bloods with insults on other gangs.Cheri, you read a book.A gang book about how gangs shoot gangs and then read Alex's story again.

  146. El chile

    Shame!! on Mr. Shaw for expressing so bad towards illegal on kfi.that was so racist…shame on you!

  147. Cheri

    The entirety of my comments are directed at any and all Illegal immigration. You must have me confused with someone else. Please reread my comments and feel free to refute any of my arguments. I welcome the discourse.

    If Espinoza hadn't been in this country, he wouldn't have ked the man. Law enforcement had an opportunity to turn him over for deportation, but didn't enforce the law. I want the laws enforced.

  148. laureen

    To Cheri,
    Jamiel banged against Cs and Es, and if this guy didn't want to do the hit how do you know someone else that was a citizen wouldn't?You don't know gangs and you keep saying read you closely and saying we're stupid when you maybe aren't so smart yourself.Maybe you are.Smart racist.But you don't know ish about banging.Stop saying read you again.Your racist comments weren't worth reading even once.

  149. Keith

    Look D.T. you can’t rewrite history to make yourself feel all warm in fuzzy inside. If you read my first sentence I wrote “mostly White people”. I recognize the contributions made by races other than white, but to delineate them would be too exhaustive. If one was to be labeled ignorant it would be you. A simple population breakdown reveals that this nation IS mostly white. Look at a Census. Couple that with this Nation’s past policy towards blacks in the military and you must admit that “mostly White people” is what it is….a true statement. That is not to say that the contributions made by blacks were any less meaningful. Simply comprehension will tell you that is not what I was saying.

    The whole reparation argument is absurd. My ancestors, all of them white, did not enslave your ancestors (blankuming you had enslaved ancestors to begin with), but they did fight against the confederacy to keep the Country unified. Is blood not enough for you? Are lives too little of a payment for you D.T.?

    Instead of whining about what you don’t have, why not appreciate what you do? Look at Africa now. Would you want to live there? Is that the life you were deprived? Civil war, violence, poverty, famine, aids, etc.? Would you prefer living on that continent? Instead of sitting in your Ivory tower waggling your finger at all those around you, why not look at the privilege you have been blessed with by being a citizen of this Country. Look at the opportunities afforded you by being an American. Take pride in this country instead of acting like a spoiled brat because nobody has given you a handout.

    Not to justify slavery or diminish its abhorrence, but your life is far better as a result of your ancestors being “stolen” then had they not been. As terrible as slavery was, their sacrifices paved the way for you to grow up and be a whining sniveling brat!

  150. Cheri

    Laureen.
    There is nothing racist in my commentary. I am stating the law as it exists.
    If you can refute any of my statements..please do.

    Calling me a racist is ridiculous and unfounded. Argue your point. Do you have a point other than anyone agreeing with US immigration law is a racist?

  151. laureen

    Keith,
    You're a racist, too saying slavery gave Africans a better life is bullish.Some people brought all their racism here because the Jamiel murder took all the haters out of hiding.Now that Alex told us it was a gang k-ingg please take your pointy white hats and post with the KKK.

  152. JoeyZ

    It has been proven beyond a doubt that US immigration law has nothing to do with the shooting of Jamiel Shaw. You are a racist for posting that lie here and trying to make it about that when it is clearly NOT ABOUT THAT.

    Any statement that Jamiel Shaw would be alive today if not for immigration pegs you as a racist now because that's a lie about guy living dangerously like Jamiel did. Why are you still here arguing when the truth is out if you're not trying to stir it up between Blacks and Browns and calling everyone stupid. You should be posting with your own kind. Other racists.

  153. Philip

    Was Espinoza in this country Illegally?
    YES.
    Because Espinoza was here illegally he had the opportunity to shoot the other gang member.

    If we would have deported Espinoza when we had the chance, or kept him out in the first place, maybe—-maybe someone else would have done the k-ingg.

    If an American shot him. The American would have been arrested and imprisoned.

    American Law enforcement would have an easier task of keeping gang violence down if they didn't have to deal with all the illegals committing crimes too.

    Follow Cheri's reasoning. She is on point. There isn't any racism there. Just reality.

    Wake up.

  154. Placido

    Keith,

    your imperialistic ancestors did die for this country, ours (black AND latino) lived and were eventually murdered for it! the land and economy were cultivated by the hands of faceless minorities. just because our ancestors were more disposable, it doesn't give you the right to make them any less valuable.

    our ancestors were superior in anatomy, astronomy, mathematics, medicine, architecture, astrology, theology and agriculture…..but yours had gun powder…which ironically has its own bullet points in this sad plot.

    ding-ding-ding….there's nothing to see here…please disburse! please disburse!

    alright, what's done is done…now let's all get off our egotistical high-horse and see if we can capture this thing before it captures us.

  155. Keith

    Laureen, you really are a disappointment. When you have nothing sensible, meaningful, or logical to say out comes the "racist" allegation. Why is that? Is it because your position is indefensible? Is it that you cannot refute the positions and arguments of those who hold a contrary view?

    A look at one of your prior posts in which you write “…banged against Cs and Es…” gives insight into your state of mind. You are either a child, or are enamored by the gang culture. Either way, engaging in debate with you is like engaging in debate with a bag of carrots.

    And before you accuse me of being racist think my comment through. Had slaves not been abducted and brought to America many blacks now in this Country would be in Africa (I do not want to get into the philosophical debate about whether they would have existed or not, this is for simplicity). A life in Africa or a life in America: which is better? I doubt anybody would say they would be better off in Africa, because that is simply untrue.

  156. Brian

    Your peoples have always been poor, right?

    Why?

  157. Keith

    Well Placido those faceless minorities in the United States remained and their ancestors have enjoyed the benefits of being citizens. I am talking about those illegally entering now.

    Good applied use of the teaching from your "Latino Studies" clblankes at Cal State L.A. though.

  158. Placido

    "Your peoples have always been poor, right?"

    Is that your final answer? You should have used a life-less line homey becuase you are WRONG!!!!

    In the thousands of years of our (quote) peoples (unquote) existence, we've only been poor about the last 400 years, coincidently, your (quote) people (unquote) just found prosperity about 400 years ago.

    "Why?"

    Good question, let me repeat myself:

    "In the thousands of years of our peoples existence, we've only been poor about the last 400 years, *please enter extreme sarcasm here* COINCIDENTLY, *please exit sarcasm* your people just found prosperity about 400 years ago."

  159. Placido

    "A life in Africa or a life in America: which is better?"

    Hmmmmm. This is a trick question Keith.

    By America I blankume you mean US.

    But what US and what Africa? Are we comparing the US to the Africa who's resources, manpower, economy and moral were violently sodimized by US, amongst other nations. I don't like the idea of being sodimized so I would vote for US.

    However, if were referring to an Africa, and world for that matter, with no US intervention….essentially US minus the worlds resources verse and Africa with full control of their own, and quite plentyful I might add, I don't know Kool Keith….it's a good question…but I'm not of African decent and I'm willing to bet that the first generation of Africans to enter the US borders would have chosen Africa in a landslide…it's their culture….what do you think Kool Keith?

  160. Brian

    Don't give me all this Aztec and Egypt crap. What do you know about the Vikings?

  161. Philip

    Get Real Placido. Where would you rather live today? Pick a country…any country.

    Keith, Cheri, Mike and Pete are outwitting the rest of you easily.

    Propose an argument that doesn't involve wacky sarcasm but has some meat to it. Make a point and prove it within the bounds of reality.

  162. Kool Keith

    I think you're an idiot, witty, but still an idiot.

    To comment on your reply to "Brian". I get the feeling that you’re implying the wealth of your people was stolen by mine. Much like California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona was stolen right?

  163. SMQ

    Jamiel Shaw was a Rollin 20s NHB Bloods and he was banging on the streets and in school, too. Jamiel Shaw was tragically ked for his gang banging ways but his gang banging ways got him ked. The immigration issue is down the drain, which is why Shaw Sr. got all racist against Alex Alonso. No more Jamiel's Law. No more fundraisers, time to talk about gang truce.

    This situation is serious with these rival gangs and this article shows that a truce is necessary. Anyone who cares about the community wouldn't be making the racial tensions worse by posting racial epithets and using Jamiel's death and family as messengers of Hate. They would be talking about how this sad GANG MURDER shows the necessity of the truce.

    And Jamiel Shaw wasn't a "child" so stop talking like he was. He knew what the consequences were of his deeds like all the bangers do. If you want to make his death mean something start calling for the truce. Though I feel no one here cares because these are racist whites giving themselves Spanish posting names and they appear to care about starting up more hate.

  164. SMQ

    And to Philip who said "Keith, Cheri, Mike and Pete are outwitting the rest of you easily"

    This isn't a test of wits so if that's why you're here, I suggest you move on. This is about life and death in LA. A few haters got Jamiel's father to get with a hating campaign and now that he knows his son was banging he drops the whole thing or sticks it out and looks like he's got a hateful agenda, too.

  165. Placido

    "Don't give me all this Aztec and Egypt crap."

    i didn't. what do they have to do with any of this. were they inteligent? 🙂 …but congratulations, you just caught yourself in your own booby trap…no, leave him up there everybody, that way he learns!

    Vikings, great boat builders and navigators. the designed vessels that were extrmely dense, durbale, water resistant and hydrodynamic….very impressive…they then used these vessels to traverse bodies of water which were vast, unforgiving and ferocious…so that they could encounter new lands and set forth to pillage, rape and murder innocent indigenous people.

    what's next? my dad can beat up your dad? my grandmother was a better cook? i make more money and have a pretty wife than you?

    WOW!!! This is starting to get very personal.

    where's Rodney King these days…we could all use a group hug right about now!

    NO HARD FEELINGS!!! …all of our ancestors achieved great things at some point, in some capacity…we should embrace and celebrate our experience of each others ancestry as oppossed to vindicating them. how do we do this? easy, quite bickering and embrace one another. always seek truth and fairness so that we may always find fair true solutions.

    alright, I'm out!!!

    good-night all!!!

  166. Placido

    "Get Real Placido. Where would you rather live today? Pick a country…any country."

    uhhhmm. I thought "today" I did. I thought I chose US.

    "Keith, Cheri, Mike and Pete are outwitting the rest of you easily."

    Well atleast your honest and left your name off that list, because we already established that your comprehension sks are not the best.

    "Good applied use of the teaching from your "Latino Studies" clblankes at Cal State L.A. though."

    If you had any credentials this might have been a compliment. Truth is, I didn't do the whole "Latino Studies" thing…like many of you…they were a little too militant and were not able to see the whole picture.

    "I think you're an idiot, witty, but still an idiot."

    Why? Because you don't agree with me, or becuase there's no grain of truth to what I'm saying (watch how you answer this…if you know my angle…be prepared to prove it). I don't think you do…you guys are discussing the whole illegal issue…that's another problem for another…I'm concerned with gang violence…finding the root and plucking it!!!

    "I get the feeling that you’re implying the wealth of your people was stolen by mine. Much like California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona was stolen right?"

    Truly your way off base with this Keith…but if it's something you need to get off your chest…I'm here for you baby…talk to me!!!

  167. Cheri

    I appreciate Philip's commentary. He is correct. No one in the discussion has even begun to refute our statements. No, not a battle of wits, but this is a serious discussion about serious topics. Many of the 'lightweights' as described by Philip make no valid points, only call people names and truly aren't offering any good contributions. If these witless people had a point, maybe they could actually make one.

    Bad people doing bad things…right?

    That is all some of you seem to understand.

  168. GRAPE STREET MY ASS

    YOU APPRECIATE PHILLIP BECAUS PHILLIP IS YOU chick. MOVE ALONG WITH THE HATER TALK. YOU LOST HA!

  169. Philip

    At least there are a few reasonable, intelligent people left to keep this country civilized. Cheri and Keith and the others I mentioned do make sense. It is hard for you to believe that there may be more people who believe what they believe? You, Grape, if you want to contribute to the discussion, I suggest you put some thought into it.

    Or what..you are too wrapped up in your own twisted ideas that you aren't able to reason or put your thoughts together into a good response?

  170. One Nation

    Excellent article and thanks Alex Alonso for shedding some light on this mistaken story. I was stunned and sad by the new information about Jamiel Shaw's death but it does shake the foundation of the Shaw family's law.

    I feel that the family will lose all credibility if they continue to deny the truth and stick with these people who are about causing trouble with the races, like these commentors Keith the white supremacist and them others over here.

    The family had my sympathy but their loss of credibility on the subject of immigration is welcome because it's a bad law. I didn't know if they realized that brings heat on nice hispanic people. But Mr Shaw did sound very mean to hispanic people on J&K radio so now I know he's not about love. I say Alex Alonso is right and let's move on with our own activists, not haters, and get the peace.

  171. Placido

    Smq,

    I hear you. You sound pretty close to the situation, so my condolences. At this point I wouldn't accuse Mr. Shaw of being anything but a grieving father.

    But don't forget, what ked Jamiel was a mentality and a condition. In this case his name happen to be Pedro, but it could have been anything. And he happen to be from Mexico, he could have been from anywhere. The root of this probelm is not Jamiel and Pedro, but the mentality and condition both were exposed to. If you just want to apply a band-aid to the situation, blame Pedro and were he came from. If you want to have a signicant impact on this ongoing dilemna, then realize it wasn't as much as were they were from, as it was were they were at.

  172. Placido

    Onenation,

    I thought Mr. Shaw was a little edgy to, then I tried to put myself in his shoes and I realized there's absolutely no way I could put them on…..not even with velcro and a shoehorn….tough, tough situation. I agree with you, but I'm also willing to give Mr. Shaw some leeway considering what he's been through. Part of his reaction has to be an embeded self-defense mechanism.

    As for replacing hate with love……..I'm all with you mang…there is no greater illusion than seperation…I aint jumping ships….either this boat stays afloat or will all sink together….Onenation….under a groove.

    Que No?

  173. Placido

    Phillip and Cheri,

    Get a room for crying out loud!

  174. One Nation

    Thank you Placido for representing the peace. If we can learn anything from this awful tragedy it's that we can't cave into the pressures of hate. That is what racism is, isn't it? Something terrible happens and someone angry says, "Blame that race" and they do.

    If it's by gangs k-ingg each other in the street over race or territory, or folks making racist posts in the name of this young man's wasted bright light, it's still harmful and it all must end. That is how I want to remember Jamiel Shaw. As the person of good character whose senseless death awakened us to come together and negotiate the peace.

    One Nation under a groove.

    One Love.

  175. Tip

    Negotiate Law Enforcement.
    Get the police and ICE to enforce the laws.

    I read alot of what's been put up here.

    Lots of points of view. It is tragic that this man died. It is also tragic that we keep letting the criminal illegals to stay.

    Clean House America. Enforce the law. Get all criminals off the street or out of the country, whichever fits. That is the only way we can have peace.

  176. El Chile

    Placido…i really agree with u!!!

  177. D.T.

    So much hatred, so little logic, compblankion or understanding. How can we unite as country of different colors, but all americans, if we can't come together on a message board? Keith, et al, You all are right. I am so happy to be an American. I never said anything else. Africa is not an option for me, even if I knew where my ancestors came from. My point was that, if the actions of your ancestors matter, so do the consequences. But obviously this is just too raw a subject to try to rationally discuss. Money is not the point. I have lots, thanks.

  178. Maria

  182. Keith

    Well I guess this board has pretty much run its course. The allegation of racism has been slung. I can say that those accusing me of being racist know nothing of me or the feelings I have towards any race of people, but I doubt that matters. When my positions are countered with Ad Hominem, the party is pretty much over. I have been dismissed as a “White supremacist” (One Nation), “Cracker” (BGF), and others I’m sure. I am not going to get mired into arguing that I am not a racist cracker, because that would just be futile. My hope is not to sway the views or opinions contrary to my own, but the views and opinions of those reading. Maybe I have, maybe I have not.

    To focus back on to the topic of Jamiel’s law, let me say this. It is a good law and great public policy. It does not matter to me if Jamiel was a gang banger or not, what matters is that he was a U.S. citizen in the U.S. and Pedro Espinoza was a Mexican citizen illegally in the U.S. Pedro was a member of a violent street gang. We as Americans have an interest in making our streets safer for all Americans (even those in gangs). Our streets can be made safer by removing from the country violent gang members. This is a simply, inexpensive solution that is easily implemented and that ultimately makes the community a safer place to live. A safer place to live should be the goal we all share.

    I do not know why anybody would be against the deportation of gang members, but apparently there are those that are. Is it because you don’t want safer streets or the reduction in the numbers of gang members? What is it, what is the reason? About the only argument against the law that I have heard that makes any sense is that it may have a deterrent effect on illegal aliens reporting crimes against them. It is my opinion that this is an acceptable trade off for safer streets. Being a victim of a crime is a horrible thing, but suspending the laws of this Country is a terrible solution. It’s like pblanking a law that would prevent hospital workers from reporting to police a suspected rapist on the grounds that it might deter that rapist from seeking medical attention.

    The other prevailing view is that deportation is not the solution. Well I never said it was, nor did I ever claim that it is all that we should do. Education, determent programs, criminal enhancements AND deportation (amongst others) should all be utilized to combat the problem. We achieve greater success when using a multi-prong approach, then single-prong approach, and greater success is something I’m sure we can all agree on.

    Otherwise she would want a safer community by driving out the illegal scum.

    At the end of the day though non of us really agree about what went on or down the fact of that matter is another black man is gone not just a black man but another human being and thats what really matters not bout what was said right or wrong because believe it or not we were all kids at 1 time or another doing krazy kid ish but if it registered into our young minds what any of us were doing we all would have lived more safer and productive lives at younger ages so im not here 2 bash this young black brotha or even the young hispanic brotha who ked this young man but all i can say is i will pray for the shooter and GOD bless the Dead R.I.P young Jamiel

    The mean streets of the US are way too dangerous for Illegals. They'd be much safer and way better off if they went home. They wouldn't have to risk getting picked on by gangers.

    Yes, the american citizens are too wrapped up in living decent lives to want to protect the illegals from getting their punishment for breaking our laws by entering illegally.

    the storm is coming. smell the rain?

    The insanity of those gang ridden neighborhoods is beyond appalling. Its now humorous.

    Everything is dysfunctional. The people, the politicians, the schools and the local govt.

    How can any sane and rational person come up with a justification for tolerating that vermin and scum?

  194. Ms. PrettiBrwn....

    I could barely get through this article, wondering whether the author has lost his mind. If you believe that this promising young man who died in his fathers arms after he was shot in the head and back by a cowardous illegal mexican deserved to be murdered…then the author is as ruthless and pitiful as that low-lifed, brainwashed murderer.

    You don't know who wrote what on a blog. What a weak argument based largely on surmise. Myspace proves absolutely nothing. Was he also a Christian who made over 250,000 a year since all the evidence of this truth is based on a MySpace page? You argument is flawed. However, it appears that you pick and choose the material that suits you while you ignore the rest…. hummm.

    Let's stick with facts that can be proven. He was a promising young athlete. He had Stanford University and Rudgers University ringing his phone. He was walking home minding his own business, when some ignorant, illegal coward arse mexican pulled a gun out and shot him because HE WAS A PROMISING YOUNG BLACK MAN.

    You need to get your head out of the sand and open your eyes. Rather than accepting the truth, you would rather berate the victim and insinuate that he deserved the bullet in his head and back. You need to get a damned life!

    You should be ashamed.

    Star L.A. athlete couldn’t outrun gangs
    March 04, 2008

    Stanford University called about Jamiel Shaw a week or so ago, intrigued by the slight but speedy running back for Los Angeles High School, the Southern League’s most valuable player last year. Rutgers University called a few days later.

    The Shaw family already had reason to be proud. Jamiel’s mother, Army Sgt. Anita Shaw, was on her second tour of duty in Iraq.

    On Sunday night, it was Jamiel’s father on the phone and then his son’s girlfriend, Chrystale Miles. Jamiel Sr. called to tell him to hurry home from the mall. The 17-year-old boy was three doors away when someone shot him to death while he was still talking on his cellphone to Chrystale, friends say.

    Jamiel Sr. heard the shots almost as soon as he hung up. He ran out of the house, raced around the corner and found his son lying on the sidewalk, bleeding.

    “She’s over there trying to protect us from guns and bombs, and then she has to hear that her son is dead over here,” he said of Anita on Monday. “I’ve got my own personal Iraq now.”

    Los Angeles police officials described the k-ingg as random and senseless, cutting down a youth who had been doing everything right in his life – from hitting the books to never missing church to inspiring the Los Angeles High Romans to last year’s Southern League title.

    A police spokeswoman said two Latino men pulled up in a car, jumped out, asked Jamiel if he belonged to a gang, and shot him when he didn’t answer. She said Jamiel was not affiliated with a gang and that detectives had no suspects.

    Anita Shaw was flying back from Iraq on Monday, family members said.

    “She called crying, saying, ‘Tell me it’s not my son,’ ” said Jamiel’s aunt, Althea Shaw. “She was so proud. She felt he had made it through the hard times. She still called him her baby, even though he was taller than her.”

    Jamiel Sr. said he had “an 18-year plan” for their son, whose ultimate goal was to become a sports agent: “I would tell him, ‘I’m going to get you to 18, and if you do what you’re supposed to do, you’ll get to college,’ ” the father recalled. “He was almost there.”

    The youth’s football coach, Hardy Williams, was with the family Monday at their 5th Avenue home, where Jamiel’s trophies and medals lined the mantel. His 9-year-old brother, Thomas, wore Jamiel’s favorite Atlanta Braves cap. Tears flowed.

    “He was a very special kid,” Williams said. “Not only was he an outstanding athlete, he was a good person. I’ve never seen Jamiel mad. He had such a big smile.”

    The coach described his standout player as “a Houdini on the football field,” and the numbers backed it up. As a junior, Jamiel rushed for more than 1,000 yards last year, averaging just over 14 yards per carry. An invitational All-City first-team selection, he scored 11 touchdowns, returned punts and kickoffs, and played defensive back. He also competed in track.

    Hours before he was shot, Jamiel had spent the day at a football camp at Pasadena City College, Williams said.

    “Stanford just called me about his transcripts,” he said. “Rutgers called a couple of days ago. He was just on track… . He was very elated.”

    Jamiel’s teammates called him the “the spirit of the team.”

    “I went through most of today thinking it was all a joke,” Colletti Scorza, an 18-year-old junior, said of his death. “I thought he’d make it to college on a football scholarship and then be in the NFL someday… .

    “I don’t know how we’re going to fill the void on the team and as our friend.”

    Scorza and another teammate, Rayvione Mouton, 16, had hung out with Jamiel on Friday.

    “I remember I told him, ‘I’ll see you Monday!’ ” Rayvione said. “But now I know I won’t ever see him again.”

    The two students said gang violence is less common in Jamiel’s neighborhood than in areas south and east of L.A. High. They also said there had been no tensions between blacks and Latinos. Jamiel was black.

    Chrystale’s brother, Romans defensive end Willie Miles, said she was not up to speaking late Monday. He said she told him she was talking to Jamiel on his cellphone when she heard the car pull up and someone ask him “where he was from,” code for which gang he belonged to.

    Miles said his sister heard what she later realized was gunfire.

    “It was like a long gust of wind,” he said. “The phone went dead after that.”

    On the sidewalk where Jamiel fell, mourners created a memorial of blue and white candles and flowers, L.A. High’s colors.

    Jamiel Sr. recalled the horror of seeing his son down on the pavement, and said that his boy had never missed a game because of an injury.

    “When he went on the field, he never came out,” the father said. “He’d never been hurt. This is the first time I saw him hurt.”

    That's a lovely article but it has nothing to do with Alex's point that Jamiel Shaw was murdered because he claimed Bloods. Very tragic, but distorting the facts is to put more kids in danger. You're creating a false sense of security with this immigration ruse, when in fact Jamiel would be alive today if he weren't identifying himself with his neighborhood gang. Innocent as it was, and Alex has made it very clear it was innocent, it was still an affiliation that got him ked.

    I am beginning to think that all these posts here are just about pblanking laws that kick out Hispanics. Jamiel Shaw has become an extraneous issue, even maybe to his family that will not accept the truth before their eyes, in their quest to pblank this hateful law.

    theres talented, bright, smart, straight A's students living in gueetos ..I know cause i live in s-central in the 80's ..but the only problem is that they live in a gang infested community…and most of those are the victims or targets of rival gang bangers..specially if ur standing next to any banger or just walkin by them..and if ur young wearing their attire…Mr Big J…why blame the system blame urselfs

  199. victor

    The laws spoken of here target criminals. This group includes any and all persons in this country without proper documentation.

    I haven't seen anyone specifically targeting ALL hispanics only the criminals.

    Gang members (not necessarily hispanic) are criminals.

    ALL Illegal aliens (not necessarily hispanic) are criminals. Don't forget that ALL illegals broke the law by not following immigration processes.

    No, we are Not targeting hispanics unless you say that hispanics have been the largest group in the LA area who have broken this country's laws by coming here…breaking the law = criminal behavior. They should be deported or take their own blankes home.

    We struggle enought taking care of our own.

  200. Ms. Prettibrwn

    Victor, Excellent Point. Isn't it ironic that HISPANICS COMPLAIN THAT MEXICANS ARE TARGETED BY THE LAW BECAUSE THEY ARE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT GANG BANGERS… HOWEVER THE VICTIM WAS NOT TARGETED BECAUSE OF HIS RACE.
    You know what, I'm trying hard not to become a racist myself….but some of you idiots make it very hard for me. Extremely hard…

  201. El chile

    Mr Keith, Mr Big J, Victor you guys live by the LAWS..but dont forget that u also like myself are breaking the laws..why because u pay illegal alien to clean your car, cook ur food, cut your lawn..come on dont tell me that you ask for legal documents before they do it…grow up and stop being sooo hipocrit….let the goverment take care of that..stop acting like the (minuteman)

  202. victor

    I wash my own car, cook (and grow a bit of ) my own food. Mow my own lawn.
    Pay over 30% of my income in taxes to support services that illegals use…just because they show up at the emergency room…that I pay for…drive on my highway..that I pay for.. blocking it up with traffic…Drink water, consume resources…that belong to the citizens of this country.

    I am acting like a decent law-abiding citizen of this country. Illegals steal on a regular basis by first stealing their way across the border…using up resources and clogging the freeways and social services and medical facilities meant for citizens or those who have earned the right go be here by following immigration laws.

    If the immigrants left…there would be some growing pains sure..we'd get through it..we always find a way…but it would be worth the time to realign.. My drive to work would be MUCH less congested. My electricity bill would drop because there would be enough to go around. My water bill too. America does enough for the world…why should be suffer the burden of illegal alien criminals clogging up everything?

  203. Just to be clear…I'm talking about ILLEGAL immigrants.

  204. CarsonBorn

    Facts:

    1) The murderer was released from jail for "EXHIBITING A FIREARM"

    2) The murderer was here illegally because; unlike my Mexican friend's parents, he has no regard for law, and is unwilling to go the process.

    3) Violent offenders are supposed to be deported bacc to their nation of origin.

    4) Mr. Espinoza is deported, thus unable to murder Mr. Shaw.

    5) Mr. Shaw is alive, if only for one more second.

    I'm full aware that the deportation of illegal violent offenders will not solve the overall problem. However, it would have solved Mr. Shaw's problem of seeing his son shot, on the day, at that time…………

  205. El Chile

    Did you know mr Victor that most of illegals work with fake social securities..and on tax time they dont get any tax refunds,,wheres that money going to???and they do pay taxes by purchasing..come on who doesnt pay taxes in the us..thats just another of ur minuteman criteria…… My blank you do everything,,,come on!!!dont give me that Bull$@!@..

  206. CarsonBorn

    Oh yeah, in reference to all the race-bashing; I don't consider myself special or even among the upper echelon of intellectuals; however, I'm not dumb enough to group a whole race of people by the actions of a few and I'm not dumb enough to speak on behalf of all African Americans, when I myself know less than 1,000 of them. (What's that like .00000000001%). I rather group people into two categories: 1)Cool People and 2)blankholes. I go out of my way to give respect to cool people, and, conversely, out of my way to give no respect to blankholes. It's really that simple ladies and gentleman. Cool people and blankholes come in every shape, color, and gender. I know this is incredibly difficult to do since it so much easier to identify people by ethnic/racial groups, but give it a try. Instead of Mexicans or Asians can't drive, try blankholes can't drive! Get it!!!

    (youtube) O'reilly vs geraldo perfect example of this!!

    So they ARE stealing social security numbers too, ruining an american's credit.

    That's funny about illegals paying taxes like makes the criminal activity by being here undocumented right…just get out. We'll be fine without you and all the illegals Chile. stop stealing from americans and go home.
    In this country illegally = criminal = blankhole.

  209. El Chile

    this is my pint of view!!..i say whats right and humain…SEMPER FI

  210. Tip

    interesting chile-you say MOST illegals use fake socials–do you know that is also a crime? Punishable with jail time?
    See, that first crime of busting through the border or overstaying the visa leads to more and more lies and crime.

    What shame and fear these people must have every day, that can't be healthy for them.

    Oh and as for the anchor babies. (that whole idea is sickening.) The illegal parents have two options: Leave the underage, american-born children to be adopted by american families, or take your children home with you. When they grow up, let them choose what country to live in.

    Just send the illegals home to fix their own countries instead of taking from the hard earned great society of this country.

    If someone wants to become part of this nation, then they should get in line with the rest of the world and do it right. I'm sick of all these people thinking they deserve something from us just because they snuck over a border or didn't go home when they agreed to.

    Americans don't owe a damned thing to illegals other than a swift kick to the butt.

    If America needs more workers, then we'll take the ones already in line the right way by allowing more to immigrate legally.

    Many MANY people from other nations want to come to the US. from Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bosnia, Croatia, Greece..even France, Germany England and the continent of Africa. Somehow they find it more difficult to "jump " the fence and so more of them follow the rules.

    Who here does not believe that sneaking across the border is a crime as defined by the laws of this land?

  211. BIG J

    EL CHILE I SEE NOW YOU ARENT FROM THE STREETS BECAUSE YOU PROABLY THINK WHITE TEE'S AND BAGGY PANTS IS GANG ATTIRE THATS HIP HOP THEY DRESS LIKE THAT IN CHINA AND JAPAN REAL G'S WEAR d#$kIES I THOUGHT YOU KNEW AND HOMIE I DO MY OWN LAWN WASH MY OWN CAR CLEAN MY OWN HOUSE SO CHECK THAT ONE HOMIE AND FOR THE GUY WHO SAID HE'S ABOUT TO BE RACIST IF YOU ARE THINKING LIKE THAT YOU ALREADY ARE YOU JUST DON'T KNOW YET .

  212. El Chile

    no illegal criminal should be compensated..no way!! u mess up and ur outa here..i do i gree with that..but what pisses me off is how illegal immigrants are portrey..and discriminated..

  213. victor

    Chile.
    Illegals are already criminals just by being in the United States.

    It is a crime to come here without going through the authority of the US Government.

    What discrimination are you talking about?

    Every criminal needs to be dealt with. No discrimination there.

    Illegal aliens are already criminals the second they violate law by entering this country without permission.

    Every person in this country without proper documentation has broken our laws and should go home or be deported.

  214. El chile

    Ur very right Mr Victor..but there's good hard working illegals, hiding from the migra" ..but remember there here for a cause not because they want too be here..I heard this from and undocumented he said…I hate the way we are being treated, but we just have to swallow that and continue feeding our children…and you know Iam a US citizen..and i dont care to give my money away…….but if its for a good cause..

  215. El chile

    Mr Big J" I have a teenager..for no reason i would allow him to wear those type of clothes…I lived and saw..how ur portrey in the hood!!…if parents let there kids wear that..just remember not to cry when ur kid gets shoot or ked..Just like Jamiel"" perfect example!! Those type of clothes gives negativity..another example..why do some schools use uniforms..ahh THINK WHY!!!

  216. victor

    These people who are born in broken and unhealthy countries do have a desperate situation.

    That does not give them the right to break into our country. Just because the United States people developed a good government system and our parent and grand parents helped make this nation the best in the world, doesn't mean we want just anybody coming here.

    Doesn't this nation have the right to bring in who we want to bring in and how many? We do.

    If some desperate and hungry person wants to make a better life for himself, he should not be allowed to STEAL it by not following the rules.

    I have compblankion. There are people around the globe who would love to live here. Many are also in desperate situations.

    Why is a desperate mexican any more desperate than a bosnian?

    Everyone should get in line. Everyone coming here should be made to follow the rules.

    I'm tired of all my money going to support criminals.

  217. El chile

    For you Mr Victor there criminals..but for me there just immigrants in search of the american dream just like ur grandfathers…dont care legally or illegally there all welcome as long as they find their dreams.

  218. El chile

    did you know mr Victor that theres more Indian people coming to the us than any other…legally and illegally

  219. Jenny

    Jamiel Shaw was not in a gang, those who seek to slander him by claiming this do so to rationalize the illegal alien gang bangers who are slaughtering innocent young American citizens. It is appalling to attempt to denigrate that wonderful young man who is not here to defend himself.

    What I recognize is that there are those wealthy and powerful individuals who seek to fatten their bank accounts the same way slave owners did. Illegal aliens help them by draggind down wages and destroying workplace protetions.

    We all need to take a stand against the slavemaster corrupt members of the powers that be, those in the media who are allying to enslave American citizens who are black, brown and white.

  220. victor

    No. The law and the american people say crossing without permission is a crime.

    You are aware of this.

    If somebody wants their shot at the american dream, they should get in line and be accepted in this country. Following the rules will still get them their chance at the american dream.

    A process exists to 'create' more american citizens.
    You must also be aware of this.

    Some of my family came through Ellis Island. Some of them were sent back because of illness. Those that pblanked the screenings and followed the rules became citizens and have lived their lives here. Legally.

    It is not fair to the people who follow the rules to let these lawbreaking, border-crossing criminals who obviously don't respect the laws of this nation to remain here for one second.

    Enforce the immigration laws. Enforce the border. Stop the disrepectful people from coming in. Remove the offending parties permanently.

  221. Jenny

    El chile, illegal aliens aren't "indians". I am an indigenous person, and my people are fed up with illegals attempting to exploit my people's history to hide behind.

    What's more, the ancestors of the illegals, the Spanish committed against the indigenous peoples of what is now called "Latin America", those same ancestors created the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Perhaps that is why their descendents are the racist pigs who slaughter innocents like Jamiel Shaw, and then make excuses for it, even attempt to slander this brave young man's memory when they can't get away with it. No more, no more illegals, no more corporate bought and paid for lobbyists and politicians. Change special order 40 or get out of the way while we do it.

  222. victor

    as for Indian people coming to the US. Again, if they follow the rules, great. If they overstay the length of their visa or sneak in, they are criminal and should be deported IMMEDIATELY.

  223. El chile

    Jenny im talking about people from INDIA…my great respects to the native americans!!

  224. Mike

    You see, there in lies the problem. They are criminals. A criminal is a person who violates the law. There is a law that forbids entering this country illegally and that is what these people do. Ipso facto, they are criminals.

  225. Mike

    Where in the world did you hear that Indians (Dot, not Feather) were coming in greater numbers then any other? That needs to be supported with something other than your word. I'm going to call Bullsh*t on that one.

    Oh and my last post was in response to El Chile's "For you…there criminals..but for me there just immigrants in search of the american dream…" post.

  226. El chile

    Mr Mike I guess u haven't been paying attention to the world news lately!

  229. High Praise For The Truth

    I just got this statement in an email from Najee Ali of Project Islamic Hope. Najee Ali speaks the truth…

    The murder of Jamiel Shaw and why the truth is never a smear campaign.

    The murder of Jamiel Shaw the 17 year old L.A.High football star who was shot and ked on March 2, in cold blood allegedly at the hands of Pedro Espinoza an illegal immigrant and member of 18th Street gang one of the largest Latino gangs in L.A.County — sent shockwaves throughout the nation.

    It also has caused a national debate on Special order 40,Which is a mandate implemented in 1979 by the Los Angeles City council and Police Chief Daryl Gates preventing LAPD officers from obtaining immigration status from detained suspects.The mandate was pblanked in an effort to encourage residents who are in the country illegally to report crimes without intimidation.

    Critics of the measure point out that the mandate also prevents officers from obtaining immigration status from gang members, violent criminals and other felons.Special order 40 is now back in the national spotlight with right wing radio and T.V.host's, conservatives and the family of Jamiel Shaw who are pushing for a Jamiel's Law named after Jamiel.

    Part of this new law proposal would require law enforcement ask gang members of their citizenship. Now whether you support Jamiels law or not–that's not my issue. My focus for the last 15 years is continuing to try and save lives and helping to end gang violence in our community.

    Which is why Jamiel’s murder is and should be a national concern. I believe it could have been avoided. Jamiel on several of his my space pages proclaimed that he was a member of Rollin 20’s NHB (Neighborhood Bloods). There are several pictures with Jamiel flashing gang signs and threatening rival gangs that included the crips and 18 th Street gang with violence which ironically is the gang his alleged ker is from.

    Now there are some who are saying that pointing these facts out is a smear campaign and those that search for the truth are k-ingg Jamiel all over again.That’s ridiculous . Were not calling him a gang member.Jamiel called himself a gang member.In fact in several of his pictures he is dressed in red,which is the color of the Bloods.

    He was ked wearing several items of red on. My point is this I don't believe Jamiel was a hard core gang member–he probably has no arrests and may not even be in the gang database.But he was net banging in cyberspace and that can be just as deadly. Even false claiming of a gang can get you ked.

    Jamiel Shaw Sr. who I'm sure by all accounts was a good dad and did all he could for his son is wrong about some issues concerning his son’s tragic murder This was not a hate crime and his rhetoric has made tensions between Blacks and Latinos worse in this city.

    Jamiel was targeted because his murderer thought he was a rival gang member based on his wearing of his red belt ,wrist bands and back pack.Mr. Shaw’s efforts with forcing prosecutor Michele Hanisee off the case after meeting with D.A.Steve Cooley and complaining about her work are very troubling. Hanisee by all accounts is a true professional and one of the best prosecutors in her office.

    To slander and taint her work is unconscionable .I believe she probably told Mr. Shaw an inconvenient truth about Jamiel’s secret life of cyberspace gang banging and he couldn't handle it.So now it appears that Mr. Shaw and his supporters are willing to go at any length to stop the truth from getting out.

    Their efforts include the slandering of prosecutor Hanisee as well as Mr. Shaw’s disgusting racial remarks about gang expert Alex Alonso on The John and Ken show on KFI radio last week. I for one don't care what anyone says about me and that includes members of the Shaw lynch mob.Their true target should be the website Myspace.com,which allowed Jamiel and so many others youths to currently post messages of promoting gangs, and threats of violence against other youths.

    Our organization plans on calling a press conference this week and calling My Space out for not taking these pages and accounts down that promote gang violence.Jamiel is gone but maybe Jamiel's law should be an effort for the community to help monitor and hold Myspace.com accountable for spreading gang culture. I believe that Jamiel was a good son and outstanding athlete But he also was a member of My Space where he claimed membership in the Bloods street gang. The truth is never a smear campaign.

    As usual, Najee Ali speaks for hope and peace. Those who don't are divisive white people who want Blacks and Browns to fight for their own sickness.

  232. SM!Q

    Najee Ali cares about the murders of black and brown children. Let's see Walter Moore's and Doug McIntyre's history of that because they have nothing! They only care about themselves and this election to get a far right Minuteman wacko into office.

  233. Tracii

    They are dreaming and they're not going to ride some poor person's coffin tails into office.

  234. who gives a I dont like if he got shot ! , its just another bklacc male taken out, come on lets bk realistic here, all they good for is receiving money from welfare and spending it on weed….ha.! There is just 1 to blame here …. And that is the government , blame the gov. Not the kid…! Instead of spending billions of dollars on a battle in Iran , they should spend it fighting the WAR that's happening here in the U.S. … …. Just do know that no matter what there will allways be racial tension among us and we might not be able to abolish it, but we can certainly make an impact if we try..!!! Its up to us, like they say " evil prevails , when good men fail to act" .!! And its true …the change ain't ganna happen untill we do something about it….

  235. shyboy

    This is my point of view of why immigrant kids choose to get in gangs…… I strongly belief that these people choose to gangbang due to their legal status here in America . I say so because I am one of those kids who chose the life of crime due to didnot have documents and felt segregated from those who did, and let me tell you why , for the reason that immigrants have a hard time leading a good life here in the" land of opportunities" as so called..we as immigrants have it hard to find jobs here because people like minute men who can't stand seeing other people succeed in life..its jelousy and greed speaking when they do all these anti- immigrant protests ..and yet we contribute greatly to Americas capital…! I am now 20 and i don't gangbang anymore to make it clear but I chose to do so cus we as immigrants have very restrictive lives we cant get a job, government help for school anything so we feel like we are left with no other choice…..and that's when people start to sell drugs and it creates a bigger issue…. One way to stop crime between races is to give an amnesty..I am a college student going into a medical career and I'm hopeing that with these new elections comming up we can be given an opportunity and pblank an amnesty which will help out many immigrants from around the world..and will indeed make a change by putting many of these kids in school ..

    If you are having such a rough time and don't feel accepted because you don't legally belong in this country.

    Get out. Go home. Go be with your people.

    The US wants immigrants, but not the disrespectful kind who don't come here legally.

    Go back to the country you belong to then get in line to become a citizen if you want.

    I can't stand all this whining. Illegals put themselves in the position they are in by hopping the border, knowingly breaking our laws.

    GO HOME…or be deported. We'll get to you…

  237. SMQ

    Shyboy is in college dreaming of medical school. That is exactly the kind of person I want here and how about this hater? How can you be so cruel? Wow. It's all coming out in the wash.

  238. victor

    SMQ,
    Shyboy is already a criminal. he is here illegally.

    He complains about the race war..he is part of it's cause. Illegals come here with a sense of entitlement. They suck off the school system, overburdening it with multi-language teaching. HELLO>>>I pay for that. I don't want to pay for teaching some criminal's kid who doesn't belong here in the first place .. the schools are already overcrowded and the quality of education is diminishing as we teach to the lowest common denominator.

    I'd rather the schools focus on teaching american kids. Give them more attention. Give them smaller clblank sizes. Lift the level of education by not having to cater to the children of illegals.

    I say the people who live in the poorer communities (where most illegals pool up) suffer the most. A large contingent of the poorer communities are black people, all competing for limited social services/education/housing/food/the parks/the roads with the disrespectful illegals who think they deserve part of our wealth just because (oh poor them) they struggled to cross the desert. Heck yes there is contention between the groups.
    Rightfully so. I'd rather help a poor american ANY day than an Illegal immigrant demanding it, stealing it.

    There are so many poor americans who have dreams of going to medical school who also have to work their butts off to make it happen. There are many people in other countries who dream of coming to an American medical school. But they apply for a student visa. They earn the right to be here. Shy boy and his ilk need to get out of this country, get in line with the rest of the world and ask permission to come here.

    I'm all for Shyboy succeeding in his life's dreams. But not in America until and unless he does the right thing and goes back to his home country and applies for citizenship, is screened and is ultimately accepted or not accepted in this country. It is not his decision whether he can come here. It is ours, the american citizen's.

    There is a legal process to apply for the privilege to be in this country. That is the front door. These illegals bypblank that and sneak in through the basement window. (BREAKING AND ENTERING is also a crime!)

  239. victor

    Americans lose, Legal immigrants lose and this country loses because of the people who steal into this country.

    We have the right to decide who enters this land. We decide who and how many.

    Look at Mexico's immigration laws…why do Mexicans protect their border and decide who they allow to be present within their borders?

    Illegals are not only disrespectful criminals, the Mexican illegals are also hypocrites.

  240. SMQ

    victor,
    A new president is coming to office. All three of these candidates want amnesty so it doesn't even matter who gets elected for this issue. We have a Democrat congress. What you want doesn't matter anymore. There will be amnesty soon after the election and when it comes Shyboy can say the same to you. You don't like it victor, move.

  241. victor

    SMQ
    Americans won't stand for it. Watch.

  242. El Chile

    victor u defenely need to join the S.O.S or Minuteman Klan or work at KFI..they need people like you…….SEMPER FI

  243. victor

    I hadn't considered joining an organization. In the end I don't think that will be necessary.

    I am on the correct side of this debate and am in the majority.

    There is nothing I've said that is refutable.

  244. JoeyZ

    In the end you are out-voted by the next president and all three are against you supporting amnesty. You're just a little ish taking a crap in the wind.

  245. JoeyZ

    I meant to direct that to the hater victor. Don't want any confusion.

  246. victor

    It is funny that people who hold my values about the difference between right and wrong are called haters.

    Would you consider yourself a hater if you were upset that people entered your house without permission and took advantage of the home that you and your family have built up and created? What if those interlopers believed that, well, these people have more than I have so I am going to take what is theirs and make it mine? What if you felt that these people did not have the right to enter your home and you wanted the police to get them out? Would you want the law changed so anyone could come in when they wanted to use and take as they wished? A reasonable person would blankume that you would want your home to be protected. Wanting to have your home and your life protected is not hate.

    American citizens do not want the kind of person whose first act in this country is to break our laws, to take what is not theirs and disrespect us.

    If a person wants to be in this country, there is a way. Do it right, ask permission, do not just break in.

    Americans don't want to offer amnesty to those who have circumvented our protective policies. When it comes to selecting a president, there are bigger issues than illegal immigration to deal with.

    If an amnesty is suggested, it will be shot down by the people of this country.

    Trust and believe there will be NO amnesty. Whoever becomes president will get the message loud and clear if he/she proposes amnesty.

    Remember what happened two years ago? The citizens spoke.- And it was – Loud and Clear.

  247. BIG J

    EL CHILE AND JOEY Z MUST BE BROTHERS BECAUSE THEY ARE IDIOTS DO THEY UNDER STAND THAT THIS COUNTRY IS RAN WITH TAX MONEY IF YOU ARE ILLEGAL YOU CANT PAY TAXES SO WHILE WE PAY OUR TAXES THEY GET EVERY THING FREE SEE HOW MUCH WE WILL BE PAYING FOR THE ILLEGALS MEDICAL BUT IM NOT MAD AT THEM OUR WEAK COUNTRY LET EVERYBODY IN AND GET FREE EDUCATION FREE MEDICAL BUT THE AMERICANS DONT GET ish .

  249. Mike

    You’re right. The next president, be it John McCain, Barrack Obama, or *shudder* Hillary Clinton, will side with those pushing for Amnesty. I for one am disappointed that this isn’t the most important issue of this election, since it is the most important issue for me, and the single most corrosive problem this country faces. But I rest easy knowing that no amnesty will pblank despite the beliefs or our future leader.

    Two years ago was the best shot. The country was doing well financially, the climate was optimism, and Americans were spending money at an alarming rate. They were taking advantage of cheap illegal labor to do home improvements and even help them move into their new homes they could not afford. Well things are not so sunny anymore. We are in a recession, Americans are out of work, and the price of food and gas is ever increasing. Many Americans face foreclosure on their homes, and saving seems to be top priority.

    A year ago Amnesty was on the table. The American people rose up and stalled the pblankage of that bill. This was at a time when America was doing great. To get so many to voice opposition at a time when most Americans were apathetic to this issue simply demonstrates the remarkably strong feelings held by the citizens of this Country. This will only grow. There is no question that most Americans oppose illegal immigration. The problem is that they are not vocal about it, or they are apathetic to the problem. Ask them if we should have stricter enforcement at the boarder and they overwhelmingly say “yes”. Get them to make a call or write a letter opposing an amnesty bill and it’s simply not going to happen. That is until the county’s economy sags. Now Americans find it difficult to find work to support their family, or they know somebody who can’t find work. Right or wrong, illegal aliens will be made scapegoats for blue collar America’s problems. They will galvanize and push for tougher laws and deportations. They will openly embrace that notion that American jobs are being taken from them (not all illegals pick produce. They hold many blue collar jobs traditionally staffed by Americans). The tide has shifted, the opportunity lost, amnesty will not become a reality.

    The argument that those who oppose open boarders are racists will not hold water as the opposition swells. How can a vast majority of this country be “racist” because they want our laws enforced and our boarder secured? The end is near and I for one am excited.

  250. I SUPPORT JAMIEL-S LAW!

  251. el chile

    Mike, Victor and Big J…bigtime Bigots!!

  252. Mike

    Well being called a bigot by you doesn’t really mean a whole lot. I doubt you even know the meaning of the word. I would suggest you look it up, but lets be honest, Mr. “theres more Indian people coming to the us than any other…legally and illegally ” isn’t going to fact check anything.

    Let me define it for you. Bigot means “a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance”. You tell me how I treated anybody with hatred and intolerance.

    You know, never mind that. Don’t bother. You are the same guy that posted these gems.

    “the goverment still wants illegal immigrants to come and work the jobs that no US people dont want..they are trying to give temp jobs to undocumented people…..there want to use this to calm the US racist people down.”

    and

    “This is a race war..i mean the white people are realizing that the us is getting populated by LATINOS..and there using the media to alert the goverment and black people to unit with them to stop the invation like they call it”

    And the best

    “as a kid I grew up getting beaten and robbed by black gangbangers, and non-afiliated black kids…not just me but my mom, sister, neighbors, friends..people that lives and lived there nows what i mean…. my point is that hispanics living in south central that got robbed and beaten have hatred towards them, and now alot of those kids grew old and joined a gang do remember what they and their people went tru..and now defenely would not put up with any blacks trying to robbed or harrased their people speacially in their neighborhood,…”

    Dude, you have no credibility. I’m sure if you were to explain to me what makes you think I am a bigot it would be just as nonsensical, poorly written, unresearched, inarticulate and absurd as every other post of yours.

    EIN? You mean an Employer Identification Number? If so, this is a number given to an employer, not an employee.

    The argument that illegal imagrants pay taxes is ridiculous. Sure they pay sales tax, but in most positions held by illegal aliens wages are paid in cash and not reported. No taxes are withheld on unreported taxes. It is then the illeagal alien's responsibility to declare these wages on an individual or family tax return. It is this tax return that is not filed.

    As for the sales tax, 7.25% on taxable purchaes made by low earning individuals does not even come close to the price paid by tax payers to have them in the country.

    You are also correct that all races have formed crinal gangs. If it was possible to deport them all

    You are also correct that all races have formed criminal gangs. If it was possible to deport them all I would be all for it, but unfortunately that is not an available option to combat all gang members, only the illegal ones. But if we have available tools to remove any gang members from the streets we should utilize them. Deportation just happens to be a tool we can use to remove a certain type of gang member from the streets: Illegal Alien ones.

    He irregularly attended clblankes at Arroyo Valley and was not in clblank the day he was ked, district officials said</i>

    The illegal alien that murdered Shaw had no clue to who Shaw was, except he was a black kid in the neighborhood. Banuelos had already tangled with his kers earlier.

  269. Tired of all the violence

    Most of you people abndoned the subject altogether. Some of you made some strong points. what I see here is that we are feeding off the media and falling into their web of fighting one another. Instead focus on the individual incident. someone lost their life and the criminal has been caught. The media is just exploiting this unfortunate incident to accomplish their objective. This objective is to rattle everybody's feelings to better ratings. Don't start pointing fingers and act like you have all the answers. learn to understand that we all have different opinions and learn to respect other's opinions as well. You can't sway someone's opinion by getting getting into confrontational arguments. Instead of fighting each other ask yourself what you are presently doing to better the situation that has all of us posting comments about what should be done. voices are not heard if not backed up by actions. By the way I am a 32 year old latino who served in the USMC, was raised in the hood, and still lives in the hood. I am no better than anyone else and am a legal us resident.

  280. gangmembers suck

    Dear Smiley 18 street,

    i would like to take this time to clarify a few things about you and your Gang.

    1) your entire gang needs to be cleared off the street and disposed of. as do any family member that knows you scumbags walk the streets and does not turn you in.
    your illegal buddies need to be sent home ASAP. but all 18th streeters need to be rooted out and disposed of as you have No value to the world at large. you are by your Own name worth nothing.
    18th street = nothing but scum.
    so when an 18th street gang member gets mowed down i feel nothing.

    ok i lied i do feel something.

    I feel like throwing a party.
    it is my hope that you Smiley do not die.
    i hope you get caught in a lovely Drive by and find your self in a wheelchair crapping into a bag for a few years until an infection finally takes ya out.

    You and your racist group don't make the Shaw family look better.You refuse to say that Jamiel was a gang banger.They said he was Star Trek and then every one laughed at the lot of you.You're destroying them quietly with ugly racism and the truth that Alex wrote is going to get worse for them everyday.They get with you and they get with the racists.They don't need you anymore than a presidential candidate needs help from Osama Bin Laden.You smear this family just by comments.

    Jamiel was targeted because he was black. 18ST has now become like other sur gangs-KLANS IN A TAN! True enough, the man who shot him may have targeted him because he was a "blood", but on the same token, you're going to tell me that this guy wasn't racist as well?

    So no, Jamiel's k-ingg may have been a gang thing, but folks would be naive if they thought it was totally about gang affiliation, without race being a factor.

    Mexicans as a whole, hate black people, pure and simple, which translates into why this gang rivalry between black and brown, is now mostly a race thing, as opposed to a gang thing.

  288. SMQ

    It wasn't a race thing as you say. There are other Black gangs in the area. 18 Street isn't in a beef with Crips and Hoovers. This was about the beef between Bloods and 18 Street.

    dam right he was a slob thats a fact they always wanna cover it up and say ma baby was no gang member but he just blend in with the way the younstas dress and the media wants it to be racial because they hate mexicans too so they can have that law pblanked so they can't get over the border

  293. no way

    An LAPD officer went further than this article did on Jamiel Shaw and his gang connections. Regardless if Jamiel Shaw has ever been arrested or been in jail, there is no DOUBT he was a Blood and got murdered by an 18th Street, a gang that has black members. So can the family accept the TRUTH finally?

  294. converned with it

    that was LAPD officer Winston Lee that basically said that Jamiel Shaw is a gang member it does not matter if you have a criminal record. Shaw was only 17 so not all 17 year old gang members have a criminal record. But it does not matter. What I heard that Pedro did was viscous, and he is a cold blooded ker with no remorse.

    I guess Alonso was correct. I initially thought he was wrong.

  295. Omar Tashman

    I live in los angeles and to be honest this kid had it coming.. he was a wannabe thug.. he talked to gang members so that made him a target.. he had sumthing like this coming to him.. and people are mad at the mayor!??! they are trying to bring the mayor into the mix!? thats bull.. i do not pity this kid.. if he was a good kid he wouldnt be hanging out with gang members and posting stupid gang affiliated crap on his myspace page saying he is.. and the media is trying to make it a big deal cause a latino ked a black.. but in reality blacks are also k-ingg latinos.. innocent hard working latinos that work there blank of to earn a few bucks an hour.. so honestly.. i don't know why out of the thousands of murders each year involving gangs does this make it on the news.. because he wasnt a victim.. if anything this kid probobly wore red and talked the slang of the bloods .. he was prety much waving a flag saying i am a gang member.. and its sad and a big shame cause he's not really from a neighborhood or gang.. he's just a claimer…

  296. thien

    man this is a well put clarification on this article. i remember reading this article in the LA times and i noticed he was wearing that blk and red collar shirt and that he went to LA city high, and all i could think of is NH-20's and city stones! so yeah looks are decieving and what the paper prints isn't always as accurate as some may ignorantly believe!

  297. Stop Gang War

    Yeah, the father should be speaking out more against that claiming and hanging with a gang that causes someone to get murder rather than this one illegal alien. What if the next 18th Street member is a US citizen and ked then next Blood like most are?

  298. Mike

    Gang member or not, doesn't change the fact that he would still be alive if we had some control at the border and L.A.P.D didn't drop the ball and let this illegal alien out of jail.

  299. Larry

    Slaves didn't have a choice but to come here. Illegal aliens do. I bet you most of these 18th avenue retards are illegals. Screw Islamic terrorists, these bastards are the ones that need to be annihilated

  300. Chuy

    f all gangs. Let them all k each other. Not like any of them adapt ish to society anyways.

  301. Mike is a Dumb Ass

    Mike is so ignorant, it was Culver City PD who has no Special Order 40 who arrested Pedro, and it was ICE that never placed a hold on him when he was released. How the f can you blame the LAPD, when it was ICE that chose not to deport?

  302. Vincent

    ALL GANG MEMBERS NEED TO CALL A TRUCE STOP k-ingG EACH OTHER IN THE END WE'RE ALL HUMAN. AS WEAK AS WE ARE DIVIDEDA IS AS STRONG AS WE ARE UNITED. WE ARE ALL THE SAME ON THE INSIDE PEOPLE DON'T DESERVE TO BE MURDERED BASED ON RACE COLOR OR THIER BELIEFS Rest In Peace Jamiel Shaw

  303. danny bonaduce

    thankz for da straight dope on da situation. it is amazing how no other media outlet has done this type of research. it is easy to see that according to his myspace page that he was at best playin at bein a gangsta. who knows whether he was ked for his gang "wannabe" affiliation or whether he was ked for some other reason. the best thing to get out of this tragedy is: dont front being a gangsta if you aint. writing things like cK etc is serious chit. so if you aint no gangsta then dont pretend to be one. it might cost you your life.

    peace

  309. different mike

    you're telling me culver city has no similar police ordinance like special order 40? i find that hard to believe.

    i find it funny that everyone here lives in an alternate reality where if they lived in a gang neighborhood, they would MAKE SURE they weren't friends with any gang members. well, in the real world, it's not that easy, when that's all that surrounds you. and that's nothing different for pedro.

  310. Randy Munoz, The People-s Channel

    Again, a black kid "playing" gangbanger, Jamiel Shaw, was allegedly murdered by a real gangbanger who happened to be Latino. This is NOT about Black and Brown "ethnic cleansing", although we DO have our legitimate problems with each other and amongst ourselves, this was not the case. The MAJORITY of Blacks and Browns GET ALONG. Blacks like our food- we like their music. Our struggles are the same. Our dreams are the same. And our lack of opportunities and 500 years of racism, oppression, and slavery are the same (although Mexican indigenous slavery is termed "forced labor" in the history books). WE ARE NOT each others enemies- it is small groups of racist Blacks and Browns creating problems for everyone else, a conservative slanted media stirring up emotions, and OUTSIDE AGITATORS trying to capitalize on it all to promote their own racist and separatist agendas. I was born in the projects of Boyle Heights all my life, and members of my family still live there. I live in East LA. I've been to many friends funerals who died behind drugs and gangs. I've done my own ish and made it through the woods and I thank God for my mothers prayers. Why don't people for once look at the big picture and stop trying to create drama and tensions between people? We have a bullish war that will cost all of us 2 TRILLION DOLLARS, over 4100 American soldiers’ deaths and counting, and put a target on ALL OF US because our stupid blank "President" and cronies decided to. We have the same godamn issues and diversions like this we had during Vietnam: little or no healthcare, education, freedoms, jobs, etc. and what do we do? We allow the corporate media to conquer and divide to distract us from our real problems. If someone undocumented from another country ked a family member or friend I would be pissed off to, just as I would be pissed if someone from Alabama or Ohio did something like that, but we cannot pblank a racist law that systematically TARGETS Latinos. This proposed law has been called a "Crips and Bloods vacation" because it will take the heat off of Black gangs and youth and put it solely on Latino gangs and youth and create a whole new set of problems in the prisons, streets, and schools. There are plenty of other ethnicities and nationalities with gang problems in this country with gang problems but it is only the Latino (especially Mexican) that is debated. They call L.A. a "sanctuary" for gangs but what ethnicity? There are plenty of gang murders in Chicago, Detroit, Miami, New York, Houston, Atlanta, etc. and those cities aren't called "sanctuary cities" so what/who are they really talking about? Maybe gangs should just get better organized and legally carry guns as is all people's rights. Maybe they should build "compounds" and fortresses like White racist and religious groups do who enjoy their special rights and privileges. Maybe they should become more disciplined, militarized, and drug free and become the REAL threat to the government and racist agitators that they make them out to be. Instead of making this a racial issue, why don't these outside agitators that profess to care SOOO MUCH for poor Jamiel Shaw and African Americans try to do something about gang and other types of violence? Why don't they try to end the drugs, bullying, sexual abuse, etc. in our schools? Why not? Because they really don't give a ish about Blacks and Browns and THEY ARE LYING HYPOCRYTES, THAT'S WHY.

  311. BIG J

    SMILEY AND RANDY ARE TO DUMB blank IMOGRANTS THAT DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT ALL WE NEED TO DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM IS WHEN ILLEGAL IMOGRANTS ENTER OUR COUNTRY WE SHOULD HANG THEM SEND A MESSAGE BECAUSE IM TIRED OF PAYING FOR THERE MEDICAL AND TAXES TO HOUSE THEM WHEN THEY GO TO JAIL AND PAYING FOR THERE EDUCATION AND FOR THE ONES HE WERE HERE ILLEGALY AND HAD KIDS WHEN THEY SHIP THEM OUT OF HERE SEND THOSE KIDS WITH THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE ILLEGALY BORN HERE AND SMILEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN AND THEY GLblank BOTTLE AKA ABORTED .

  313. chicanissimo

    I´M A SECOND GENERATION MEXICAN. I GREW UP IN WEST LOS ANGELES, IN A VERY MIXED NEIGHBORHOOD. I HAD BLACK, ANGLO, ASIAN AND OF COURSE MEXICAN FRIENDS. WE HAD, IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE WHITES BUT IT WAS KID`S STUFF THE WHITES WERE USUALLY COOL, JUST A BIT RACIST. BUT I HAD A FRIEND THAT WAS IN A MEXICAN GANG AND HE disliked BLACKS AND WE HAD ALTERCATIONS WITH THEM. WHEN I WAS IN JUNIOR HIGH, THE MAJORITY WERE BLACKS, AND ONE TIME THIS BIGGER BLACK SUCKER PUNCHED ME FOR NO REASON AND I WAS ALONE AND WAS NOT IN A GANG. THE FEW MEXICANS AT SCHOOL BEGAN TO FIGHT AGAINST THE BLACKS. I MYSELF STARTED BEATING UP MY SMALLER BLACK FRIENDS FROM MY NEIGHBORHHOD. I THINK THE BLACKS GOT TIRED OF BEING RACIALLY OPPRESSED BY THE ANGLOS SO THEY NOW WANT TO TALK BAD AGAINST MEXICANS OR CHICANOS. IMMIGRATION HAS NOTHING TO DO, MATTER OF FACT IN MEXICO THERE IS LITTLE DISCRIMINATION TOWARDS THE FEW BLACKS, AND THEY ARE MAD CAUSE WE ARE TAKING ALL THE JOBS. ALONZO WAS TRYING TO BE AS NEUTRAL AS POSSIBLE, HE`S HALF BLACK, HALF SPANISH, HES PUERTO RICAN.

    Jamiel Shaw Sr. has death threats by low life cholos from 18th street gang. I wonder if dumb blank people are going to blame Jamiel Shaw Sr.'s MySpace page for this.

    http://mayorsam.blogspot.co

  318. It was over hoods NOT race.

    Hey frank,
    You're getting played!

    By blankociating with the likes of those fing oportunistic, race bating lowlifes the minute men and ameriKKKan patrol.

    Who if They weren't using you, jamiel's parents and community outrage in general to advance their Mexican/Latino (and blacks don't kid Yourself) hating agenda.

    The minute mutts/ameriKKKan but-trolls would shed not one fing tear seeing You and most if not all black/brown folks swinging from a noose on the nearest tree.

    When they're done scapegoating immigrants…GUESS WHO"S NEXT?!?!?

  319. cK bK ,as a matter of fact nK

    the way i see it this is bulls.h.i.t im glad they found proof that he bangs and it wasnt racial,If u cant stand the heat stay out of the kitchen.how come when blacks k mexicans it was never racially motivated,but when mexicans k blacks its always racially motivated.

  320. Dont worry bout who i am.

    Ima put it simple for yall f them sorry blank spicks if it was me id shoot all of em. they aint worth a f in this country .

  321. Get real and wake up

    alright check me out. if a white person shoots and black person its racial. if a black person shoots a white person its not. if black person shoots a spanish person its racial but if a spanish person shoots a black person its not racial.. yall need to get your ish straight and stop sayin it was gang related cuz you'll never know. o and dont worry bout who i am u need to shut the f up u sound stupid.

  322. Justice Legue

    The Shaws are race baiters by lying about the true nature why their son was ked. The father said that Pedro was working on behalf of the gang within one day of being released from jail. All bullish. Just by coincidence Pedro was visiting the neighbor of Jamiel, the Torres' and by chance Pedro and Jamiel crossed paths. Purely coincidental, unfortunate by true. It wasn't even premediated, 2nd degree murder at best.

  323. Gee

    I love the fact that you all have something to say but how many of you have been to the hood and tried to change it. Ok. Start being a leader and find something to die for or keep living to be lead by this government. This is all the plan. PAC said it best They don't give a f about us. So we have to do it. Stop looking for blankistance. I am ready to die for peace and understanding of races if you with me let's go. We need to communicate. FEAR= POWER COMMUNICATION= PEACE.

  326. dont trip

    serio, surenos have more members then crips, way more, everyone is just so used to hearn about black gangs because their members advertise everything while mexican gangs rather not bring heat to them selves. n as for a race war, wat the F, its all just gang beef, if theirs a brown k-ing a black or black kn a brown most of the time its cause their gangs beef it not because of this stupid race war that the media keeps pumpin up.

  327. schoolboy

    man if anything… f this fake blank wanna be slob
    He got wat he deserved!
    I go to the same school he went ( La high) and when browns and blacks got down,, he was there screaming like a munkee "f Bs blood" " f fakes blood" even though there were no eighteens in la…
    So I guess he got smoked for trying to be all hard…
    Man we fed up the pinche mayans anyways so… f the bullish!!!

  328. ex-westside gang member

    so why don't we just deport any and all gangmembers who have ever murdered…of all races…or better yet, all murderers…i am the son of illegal immigrants of the early 60's and even as a chicano, blacks were some of the biggest racists around….especially in private….everyones in efen denial..hate and racism is a forever fact…since the beginning 2 the end of man….

  329. gang intervention

    LA high student says they know he was active wheather he was a wannabe or a blood the said thing is that people join gangs cause they want to belong to something. This young man was just wanting to belong to something and at teh end got hurt. The true leader of all gangs is the DEVIL. So when u play with fire you get burnt. I pray for this young mans soul and his family because only GOD should be able to take us when his ready not another human k-ingg is wrong period, gang member or not it is wrong and the devil is just collecting souls everyday. Prevention needs to start with our elementary kids, Prevention with our at-risk youth and gangmembers and supression live that ish to the cops. This is not a race war it's a gang problem I know cause I was a gang member!

  330. Just saying....

    Plain and simple…Illegal immigrants take away 3 billion dollars a year in social services etc. They contribute 97 billion a year to the economy, so to me thats a pretty fair deal. Just a bunch of outside agitators trying to propel their own racist agendas in to the media, by pitting blacks and hispanics vs each other. I am a third generation Chicano and grew up in South Central. Its sad to hear people like Victor calling nice,respectful,inviting,accomidating people criminals. People like him are whats wrong with this country. This country was built on immigration and its the driving force.Rememeber, Mexicans did not cross the border, the border crossed them!! There is no ethnic cleansing going on, only a handful of blacks anf hispanic going at it. What about the innocent dad and son that were ked by blacks in a driveby a few months ago, why didn' that make the news?? The point is in south central for the most part, blacks and latinos get along. Most of them are under the same impression that its white america holding them back. But whites are trying to exploit Shaws sr.'s loss in to publicity for their on political advances.Lets not forget also that europeans were the FIRST form of immigrants in this country because this country was already inhabited by Native americans and mexicans in the southwest. They had the gun powder though.So if whites dont like amnesty, or that Hispanics are advancing politically,economically,socially etc. then go back to the land of your forefathers……EUROPE.

    If you think that some one whose parent's brought him over when he was four years old is illegal is an emberblankment to every patriot in this great nation. Grow a pair and come together, embrazo sus vecinos, hug your neighbors, because if you have lived here since before you can remember you are an American. It just makes me sick to see people use the term illegal because look you fing chumps this is the best place on earth to live, so if you were born in some other part of this ishty world it would become your life's ambition to come to the united states. As a child my grand father's half brother walked from Armenia to France with his mother, this took eleven years. From france they went to the US where she married an Armenian man who gained citizenship by fighting in world war one. Basically I love Americans and I welcome any person in the world who wants to be American the chance to become . Because what is wrong with more Americans, the answer is nothing. And for you snake tongued devils who think that we will one day war with China, they got a Billion plus, we have three hundred million, do the math you fing ignorant sacks of flesh. Its your biology that makes you human, but its your actions and words that make us "MEN" / "WOMEN".

  332. spectator

    this is exactly what i am reading as well that this young man was indeed a blood gang member as testimony from L.A. HighSchool Students.
    Racially motivated? no, more in fact along the lines of a Gang War.. Go to Compton in a blood neighborhood, stand outside, shave your head bald and wear cut off d#$kies knee high socks and nike cortez and test this theory out that you will get shot at for the bloody gang war that has been plaguing the streets for years…

    I REALLY DON'T LIKE TO COMMIT BUT I HERE THE WORDS GANG BANGER AND EVERYONE SAYS RIGHT AWAY OH THERE BAD YES I AGREE SOME ARE BECAUSE THERE'S GOOD AND BAD IN ANY GROUP. BUT I HAVE MET PLENTY GANG MEMBERS AND IF YOU TALK TO THEM ALOT OF THEM COME FROM A VERY GOOD RESPECTABLE UPBRINGING. YES THEY COME FROM A GOOD BACK GROUND IT HURTS ME TO SEE ANY MOTHER LOSE A CHILD. I HAVE LOST TWO AND MY TEARS CONTINUE TO FLOW BUT WE HAVE TO TRY AND WORK WITH THESE YOUNG GANG MEMBERS OR ANY CHILD OR YOUNG ADULTS.WE DON'T NEED TO BE LOCKING THEM UP AND NOT TEACHING THEM ANYTHING. WHY CAN'T WE ALL LEARN TO WORK TOGETHER AND TRY AND HELP ONE ANOTHER THERE ARE SO MANY GROWN FOLKS THAT GO BEHIND ANOTHER PARENTS BACK AND HELP THAT CHILD TO DO WRONG. BACK IN THE DAYS THE NEIGHBORS HELPED RAISE YOUR KIDS THE SCHOOL S HELPED EVERYONE HAD LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER. AND MOST OF ALL EVERYONE HAD RESPECT. WE ARE ALL GODS CHILDREN.AND WE REALLY DO NEED TO COME TOGETHER AND RESPECT ONE ANOTHER. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT WE ARE WE ALL BLEED THE SAME.I AM VERY SORRY FOR ANY AND EVERY BODYS LOSE MY GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND KNOW WHEN THE LORD COMES BACK WE WILL SEE OUR LOVED ONES AGAIN.

    It is very much ashame what happend to this kid! I mean it goes on everywhere across the nation. Many of my most closest friends are in gangs most in which are GANGSTAS. It is scary to think what might happen to them as we all walk the same sidewalk. It's hard to belive that someone can k another human being over a color or over territory. I guess kids these days think it is cool to join gangs especially these kids that have no one to turn to or no sence of direction. I hate it for these kind of kids because they haven't been taught right from wrong. It makes you wonder where his mom and dad where huh? I know if it where my kid he would still be here today. I have mixed feelings about mexicans being able to live here. Matter of fact that is one of the things I hate. I have not one single mexican friend. I think they are nasty individuals and they should not be allowed to live here with us. f em! All I can say is I hope kids can read this story and understand that this is not the road they want to travel. Walk on the sidewalk that will get through life! Rest in peace to another fallen soldier!!!!

  338. Just saying

    JADE……….I'll have you know that Mexicans are some of the most accomadating,welcoming,pblankionate people wou could every meet. You yourself stated that you dont have any Mexican friends. Its a shame because if you did, you would probably have a change of heart. Blacks on the other hand I have had numerous bad experiences with. Alot of blacks are just rude,arrogant,foul mouthed people. Now am I saying all blacks?? Of course not, Im not ignorant enough to say all blacks as a whole. Not ignorant like you who claims that "Mexicans are nast individuals". I feel sad for you.

  340. American Patriot

    Every true law abiding American citizens duty should be to to put a well placed .45 slug between the eyes of every gangbanger they come across – period. No tolerances, I don't care if they are a deeply rooted complex family in a neighborhood. They need to be exterminated like the cancerous growth they are. When it comes to gang members k them all, the world will be a much safer and better place for it, it will also make other younger kids stop acting like bangers and wanting to be bangers, if they understand they will be ked – no exceptions.

  348. Pedrito

    This wasn't racial and it's pretty obvious that if pedro asked jamiel where he was from and jamiel told him and got shot it's cause of what he said, it was GANG RELATED. Pedro could have just pulled out and shot this guy without asking him where he was from if this was really a racial thing. So stop that ish trying to put attention on immigrants because it's pretty obvious by the pictures and the ish written on myspace he was a blood. I mean you would either have to be blind or stupid not to see. Or like his ignorant parents putting those dumb fing shirts on camera talking ish about immigrants. I would wanna see a hispanic relative or a murdered person wear a shirt that said "relative got ked by a n$%#$*" t-shirt see how that ish feels like. then you would think twice bout doing some bullish like that on national tv. His parents denying it to make themselves and his son look innocent trying to devert people of their son's gang affiliation by putting the preblankure on immigration. Oh yeah and f that red neck Bill O'reilly gtfo with your bullish. You live in a good neighborhood get that ish out of here now he's coming out with this ish about immigration taking ish personal. This is just his excuse to attack immigrants.

    It's amazing how much ignorance I read from both sides going the replies. Bottom line is, you did the right thing Alonso and anyone who isnt blinded by their pride of their race can see while he may have been a victim, he wasnt innocent. Blacks do this Blacks all the time and it's labeled a gang thing, but when someone who isnt black does it to a black person it's a hate crime? And yet, it's hardly ever labeled a hate crime or can even make the news when it happens in reverse. Funny how that happens.

    LA needs to overturn special order 40, sign the petition for Jamiels law. Go to jamielslaw.com, this needs to get on the ballot for the voters to vote on.

  352. Arlene

    The ker of Jamiel was an illegal alien, not an immigrant. He was released from jail the day before he shot Jamiel. Why is he still in the country??? because if he had been deported like he should have been for comitting the crime he was in jail for, Jamiel would still be alive. He was a good kid and had a promising life ahead of him.

    I feel bad for jamiel shaw, he was a product of his doomed enviornment, even if he was bangin, does he really have a choice! maybe he was plannin on leavin this place and doing better things and he would have stopped talkin all dat gang ish!! ya'll don't know whats in his heart.

JUST TINK BOUT DIS MY BREDRIN IF YOU WAS IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD OR EAST LA THEY WOULD HAVE SHOT UR BLACK blank TOO NO MATTER IF YOU PUERTO RICAN OR WHATEVER U LOOK LIKE A mayans THEY WOULD HAVE BUST TWO SHOTS INNA UR Rblank!! come on yall 99 percent of latino gangs are racist against blacks everybody knows dat.

    • youayntfresh

      99 percent of Latino gangs are racist? Your are obviously an ignorant black right?

      Most Latino gang are NOT racist. Just because Pedro ked a gang member,that makes him a racist?? How come when ECC ks a fruit vendor thats not racist? When Pasadena Denver lane attack non Latino gang bangers in public is not racist?

      Blacks are racist as well. Dont give me that ish.

      For your information there IS Blacks in Mexico. You need to take your ignorant blank to Costa Chica and Acapulco.

      What do you mean as in dress like blacks?

      Everyone wants to dress good. Blacks DONT own ish. Would you imagine if only Blacks “bought” the ish they claim is there?? Blacks are a minority and a lot of them dont work. So how the f can you even claim it?

      You should stop this whole black ignorant think. Ive seen it so much and its disgusting. Why is it that Blacks can go to Mexican,Chinese restaurants but if someone not black steps into a soul food place it wrong??

      Jamiel did have a promising future so why did he have to claim a gang?

      He just like that other kid who ALSO had a football promising fututre from Compton. But he also claimed a gang and got shot.

    fyi, there not being a lot of blacks in meixco has little to do with racism and mostyl to do with the fact they didn't, for the most part, participate in the African Slave Trade, in fact, it was a point of tension between U.S. and Mexcian relations…although, some slaves from the south escaped to mexico and there are pockets of mexicans who are of african decent.

    When will everyone learn that gangs will always be around. Sure most of the gangs are in improvished , low income neighborhoods , with little to zero education but we can't blame upbringing 100% for there survival. Here's what we , as Americans should do….atop ALL government blankistance ( food stamps, section 8 housing vouchers, WICA) anything that is handed out because people don't want to get jobs and spit out kids like they are gum. Thus putting these types of neighborhoods in a "sink or swim" situation. They want to do better go for it. They want to slang drugs, rob, steal and pretty much be modern day whore mongers so be it..they can be dealt with by police or thier own kind. We should build perimeters around ghettos and toss weapons in there and let the strong survive , then export them into other ghettos and let this continue until the riff-raff is taken care of or changed thier ways. long story short we should have closed our borders long ago and when America was done with the slaves we should have sent them back..I guess the joke is on "us"..Can't wait for more of my tax dollars to be wasted on social programs..Yippee!!!!!

    There is evidence from jamiel's myspace that he talked like a blood, threw up gang signs, and dressed like a blood. Look at pictures from his myspace, there are some where he's throwing up gang signs. His dad said supposedly those hand signs mean "hang loose" and that he was doing the star trek hand sign thing. C'mon, black people don't watch star trek and we definitely don't "hang loose" thats what hawaiian surfers and white surfers throw up. His red belt also had the number 20 on it according to the D.A. Also a red spider man backpack. Take it from someone who was raised in a crip neighborhood and still lives in one today, if you're flamed up like dude was, especially in a blood neighborhood people are going to blankociate you as being a blood. You don't live in a gang infested neighborhood all of your life and not know the rules of the street. Like Kev mac said, if you play the part, then you better know what some of the repercussions are. I doubt jamiel was a blood, but the evidence does point out that he played the part. Go to google click on images and type in "jamiel shaw jr myspace" and look at some of the images and pages and you'll see him throwing up hands signs wearing red bandannas and clothing. Some people don't understand that this gang sh*t is not a game. its serious out here. don't go off of what you hear in music, t.v., movies and the internet. that sh*t is serious out here and don't speak on it unless you live here and know what the f*ck you talkin' bout.

I know how to rob banks and whack some foo guy cops and judges. I like tojoin the Hells Angels and the Monguls too since that I have been a biker gang member for more than 24 years now. I raped an elderly lady by masturbating in her mouth while she was asleep and she said that she liked the cum real good.

My dad lives in apt. 5 in the 3311 Leisure World Blkvd. in Arden Courts and he and i want to travel to Tempe, Arizona to be with the Hells Angels leaders Paul Eischeid and Tanya Smith because they treated us real good and they helped us escape from the ishty fed up cops and detectives when we robbed a band and stole a Jeep Cherokee from an elderly lady and we sold the Jeep at a chopshop for $980 and we used the money to travel and we went to Hollywood, California to hang out in bars and stripjoints and we got drunk and we fed the best chicks in the place. We ate some good vaginameat and we got laid and that was fun and neat. We cornholed some of the best vagina in the land. Thuglife is beautiful and we plan to take over the world. With obama being soft on crime, we plan to take over the U.S. and stick up banks of cash and burn the banks down. This spring and summer we plan to steal cars and whack the foo guy cops and rape their wives too. The Hells Angels credo: MURDER, MAYHEM AND LIVING OUTSIDE THE LAW. Ralph Barger who founded the Hells Angels was a good friend of my father and uncle. He treated us well and said that all cops and judges suck and eat ish and drink piss. That is what he said and he is right. All cops and judges need to go to hell in a handbasket and their wives can go f too. Call my blank at 301–948-8444 or fin 301–598-1925 to reach Stacie or Danielle. The world is gonna end by 2012 anyway so why not go out and commit crimes and whack the foo cops and judges? They are fed up anyway.

      Mexicans lost all this land, California, southwest, to good old fashioned white boys! If you’re all so tough, what the f happened? Maybe you don’t know history that the problem. And if you’re so proud of being latino, why r u trying to talk like a black? You don’t even know you’ve just borrowed their culture and identity. You should be sucking black d#$k all day long to give thanks. Man, I’m half latino, half white,,, but Mexicans are the lamest of all latinos,, most of them are short, fat, have no good music, actually, probably the worse of all time,, and dance the lamest too,, (food is good though, but it makes u fatter than f,,, but the worse is how many of them talk about how tough they are,,,,, but they lost california and most of the south west to white boys! HA ha ha!! White boys will butt f the f out of mexico if it came down to it. You should be thankful they conquered ur blank, otherwise all this land would be worthless,, otherwise you would have been trying ti immigrate even deeper into US territory. How bout you go try fighting blacks hand to hand??? Gotta use guns? I bet little short fat blank mexican gangs will get their blankes beat down almost every time, lost their terrioty.

The blanked up part is I don’t really dislike mexicans but since those farts who keep butt blanking each other in prison “la eme” started running these punk chickes sets from inside they’ve been trippen hard talking big ish and talking that race hate ish they learned from those white boys in prison old chick blank “ab”, bakk in the day we was cool with the esse’s, I got a gang of mexican homies from watts but most of these punks today got no respect for blakk people.

    garagehero is a stupid blank fart. What the blank are you talking about? Where are you from? Do you wear a blanking helmit when you eat and walk around and sit in chairs? If I walk up to you and ask where you from and then shoot you because you a blanking idiot is that cool is that o.k.? Did you get what you deserve because your stupid? Dumbblank donkey. And to all the crips on talking ish about the youngster you need to stand with that ish, he was a young blakk man, all these pekkerwood white bread chickes and these hatdancing beaneating farts want to wipe us out because they are intimidated by us and fear us and you just feed into that ish, still trying to perpetuate that same blue red ish. You motherblankers sound as stupid as these chickes say you are. Get a little smarter and recognize the writing on the wall, we blakk men are endangered species they are trying to exterminate us.

    This is EXACTLY what this system wants us to do….Doesn’t matter if your black or Mexican, this system rather see two things….1. k Each Other or 2. Be in Jail…..Dog…they want ALL to DIE..Blacks and Mexicans…. This system really doesn’t want someone from the hood, any hood, to make good of themselves…Check it… In small in PA, a Latino was ked by four local high school football players…in court…they was only charged with public drunkenness….a slap on the wrist….for k-ingg someone who had a family…someones father, someones son….and there are plenty of stories which Latinos and blacks have no justice in this country…they system is design for the minorities to STAY minorities…WE are doing Uncle Sam a favor by k-ingg each over land that belongs to HIM….Government Housing and Section 8….who really owns that land…Uncle Sam…and we’re are doing Uncle Sam a favor by k-ingg each….black on black crime….latino on latino crime….latino on black crime….carrying out the plan that was laid down since the founding of this country….but God has a BIGGER plans for ALL of Us…GOd sees the struggles, the hurt, and the tears watching another brother die without cause….. In God’s eyes…we are ALL Brothers!!! All of us!!! Jesus gave up his life so can have a better tomorrow…every time another brother is ked over non-sense thing…he or she is Lost forever…NO!!! It is NOT the plan God has laid for ALL of Us….the devil is controlling all of this…and desires everybody (Latino or Black) to BURN IN HELL FOREVER…..and he is using brothers to carry out his soul purpose…WE got to STAND UP!! ALL of US…Latino….STand-UP!!! African-Americans……STAND UP!! There many difference in clear view, but one thing in common that is We all lost homies in the satanic plot to k us ALL…Homies that are LOST FOREVER….I pray for all my brothers…God LOVEs you ALL….Christ-UP!!! time to bang for the real…….Bang Christ becasue the Devil IS BANGING Against US….Real Talk

    Amazing, simply amazing we have really stooped to an all time low, cats are bragging about who started gangbanging and whos state is doing the most k-ingg.Everybody has a story to tell about the dangers of ones environment, how many bodies have been layed to unrest do to protecting a piece of realestate that their kids will never be able to purchase or inherit. I am the offspring of the late 70s raised in the 80s and became a man in the 90s, in all my years and journeys throughout California i have lived in some of the worst ran down apartment complexes and neighborhoods,thing is never once did i see or hear anyone speak of it with so much pride as i see people do on this internet, don’t get me wrong when i say F the streets they only good for traveling on or dieing on. We will never own the streets and if we did the goal would be to improve the living conditions of those areas where the gunplay and drugs run rapid. I am a California native born and raised here and cats should know not everybody in the hoods here want to be there.I use to dream of moving to another state when i was young, to purchase land and raise my kids away from Cali, but as time would have it i’m still here. I did get to visit a few states, keyword visit.When it comes down to it im not proud of america im proud of what my people had to endure during the development process of this country we continue to shed blood for.God made man,man made money, who has the most power?One!

    Wow. Most the comments on here were made by illiterate, uneducated people. Grow up people. There is more to life than gangs and k-ingg people. Think about the future and what you’ll be bringing your children into. Get a fing education while you’re at it.

  418. Sam F

    So what does Alex Alonso imply by indicating that Jamiel was blankociated with a gang. The only point that matters is whether Jamiel was or was not blankociated to a gang does not justify being murdered. This could of been prevented if our government enforced our laws.

    • boxing man

      what ALfonso is implying is that the murder of Jamile had NOTHING to do with race and many IDIOTS tried to use as a cover up.

      And murder cannot be prevented by someone who wants to and is determined to commit murder.

    • blown one

      we should give them all guns so they can k themselves off.

      • blown one

        and yes it does justify being murdered, even though he may have at one point turned his life around in the future and become a disgruntled lower middle clblank single father paying child support and smoking weed.

        We dont need kids running around saying things like cK or eK, talking like they are mentally retarded with a speech impediment, and walking like theyre crippled, while at the same time wearing clothes that dont fit properly. This species of human should be ked off. NO matter what race creed gender or sexual orientation.

  419. all the idiot...

    People on here talking about living in the hood and how badblank you are, are fing moron pieces of ish scum bag scars on our society. You aren’t hard you’re not even intimidating you’re vile and disgusting and in a nutshell failures. For you African; or Mexican or white or whatever you are gangbanging pieces of garbage why not spend some time in Sudan where REAL African men and women struggle through genocide and war every moment of their lives just to hopefully see the day, hoping their village or town doesn’t get razed. How about you gang bangers do something productive for a change. Their are so many productive and laudable African Americans and Mexican Americans, or I should say “actual Americans”, that I’m sick of hearing that the minorities are being held down by the white man. Granted there is still a huge discrimmination towards minorities but that doesn’t deter the ones who want to achieve greatness from attempting to better themselves and their communities. If I were a respected African American leader I would despise the ones who spend their days “on the block” selling drugs and shooting each other over drug turf, and praise the ones that give up gang life to better themselves. To all the Mexican and African americans who are getting an education, making short and long term goals and attempting to achieve them, working a 8-5 or trying to start a business, you are the people that I look up to.

    You guys are idiots. Are you seriously going to shoot each other dead like this forever? What you guys should be doing is trying to get educations, you know advancing yourselves not continuing and endless violent cycle. No one cares about this “Race War” except gang members. But i do find it funny that both underdogs try to destroy each other. This is why Black/Hispanics have such a hard time advancing as a people stupidity.

  425. Rob Dell

    Amazing how this site tries to make it OK to k Jamiel Shaw because he knew some gangsters. Sure, there were probably gangsters on his block that he knew by name. Soof course it’s OK for some illegal, raised on welfare, just out of jail to geta gun illegally and walk over there and blast him for the hell of it. Well, maybe it ought to be OK for anybody to walk up to any vato and send pieces flying with a 12 gauge. Why not? Is it against the law or something? Just like crawling under the border fence is illegal? So if it;s OK to break immigration laws, tax laws, welfare laws, firearms laws, ID theft laws, motor vehicle laws….then why should any other law mean ish to me or anyone else? You want to march in the streets demanding “rights”. What about Jamiel’s rights? They didn’t count? Why should your rights count? In my opinion, they don’t. You and your familias should get the same thing you gave Jamiel and his family. A smoking hole through your guts.

    Its very sad to see all the replies and disrespect about ones race…I am a Mexican American raised in East Los Angeles, who went through a lot like many of you don’t imagine. One day some of you will realize how much damage we are inflicting to our selves. Mexican/Black don’t matter to me, I don’t judge or discriminate because of ones color or heritage. There are many good people out of all raises.. I Know many black folks who are good to me as I am to them. Speaking from experience gangs is not the way to live, for those who are deeply involved: the result isn’t nice, it’s a cruel life followed by a world full of remorse. I am not trying to preach to anyone, everyone will carry on to live the way they desire. I hope that some of your minds will mature and blossom to be able to see there is more to life than the streets. There are many Blacks and Hispanics who are smart and have a lot of potential to become someone in life. Don’t close doors on yourselves because of another idiotic person. There will be many and I repeat many who will provoke you to react in violence, but that is just a part of life. It’s up to us to have a greater inner strength and to know when to defend your self in the right manner. God bless all you hope someone understands where I’m coming from.

    @ Crazy Mhix chick.. How can you say your better then us lol.. Your spelling makes you sound like a pre school drop out. I see blacks here struggle to slang or hustle in ghetto slum corner stores because they are always getting arrested for stealing a bag of chips lol. While brown brothers move pounds through borders, states, and prisons lol. You people don’t have the intelligence to do things like that, or self control and drive, just sit on your porch and collect your government aid.

  440. mike falsia

    Apparently this kid was affiliated with the Bloods in some way if not a full member. However Espinoza still deserves the death penalty! In fact all gangbangers should be executed once arrested and justly convicted for violent crime! Bring back the electric chair for these animals. Very few are willing or can to be rehabilitated. So to hell with them.

  441. Krista

    I’m guessing you are Mexican.

    You don’t address a very important point which is that many of the Mexicans in Los Angeles County who are in these gangs, are second, third, fourth, and fifth generation illegal immigrants. The Los Angeles neighborhoods formerly occupied by whites, then blacks, are now predominately Mexican. South Los Angeles was primarily black 25 years ago. Now, it looks like Ensenada and Mexican gang members have participated in racial cleansing murders against blacks who have refused to leave.

    The blacks (and whites) have moved to the outskirts of LA County and commute to jobs in Los Angeles or have moved out of state because they have been pushed out of jobs for which they might qualify. Mexicans have lowered the wages to such an extent that they have no choice. No one does. Secretarial and legal secretarial jobs now pay nothing. The flooding of Mexicans into the United States is 50% of that problem. How can they make all of those drugs, yet still not be able to improve their economy so that they don’t have to come here? They need their own revolution. Instead, they’ve brought their revolution to the U.S. Why?

    Mexicans tend to hire their friends, relatives, and/or other Mexicans when they attain any type of supervisory position or influence. Mexicans are completely aware that their goal is to takeover the United States and its economy.

    Mexicans are some of the most racist people in the U.S. against everybody. They hate whites and blacks, yet they want to be white because they have the same skin color issues in Mexico as we do in the United States, but worse. Ultimately and generally, Mexicans are the phoniest, most back-stabbing nationality of people I have ever dealt with. I have only met two or three in my 50 years who were trustworthy in any way whatsoever. They look out for themselves and other Mexicans, only. They otherwise fake being your friend; they are very good at it. They are always HR manager’s informant. Don’t trust a Mexican. EVER. Sorry, it’s just the truth.. Enough said.

  442. Jose Lopez

    But doesn’t blankociation itself makes a person part of the problem?
