  • Lawndalian
  • Ed Rooney

    Gee anyone think the victim and the suspect may have been non-whites?

LOL….. c’mon now….. let’s be real here…. and calling me a idiot!!! really now!!

  • Lawndalian

    I have not said a single rude thing here, I have called no one an idiot. I pointed out the homicides because they can be and are in this case representative of violence.

    This has nothing to do with the violence in Inglewood, Gardena or Compton, I am only speaking of Lawndale, and by ANY measure, it is on the rise.

    • MIA

      i meant no disrespect towards u Lawndalian

  • Pat Robertson

    Hey Mia, suck my throbbing member.

    • MIA

      if u had one

  • MIA

    Lawndalian I was not being rude to u I was just saying that Lawndale is not no where near as bad as these other city’s around us.. I think we live in a pretty good city and as for the idiot comment that was for Ed for he has been ignorant and rude by calling me idiot, When I have said nothing to him or towards him and for him to say that he has no rights and now we have this gay saying to suck the throbbing member!!! and honesty it may be on the rise but I feel that the city’s around us are much worse… and hopefully these guys ED and Pat don’t live in our city cause these people are the ones that make our city worse and look bad!! I have nothing against u Lawndalian I have much respect until someone calls me a idiot

  • family

    wow thank you for leaving such respectful comments about my family member

    • MIA

      I did send my condolence to you and ur family I live right around the corner from this happening and it was just very sad to hear what happend… It’s just so sad how people could act so ignorant it’s it’s very embarrassing even tho I don’t know none of these people that has made rude comments towards ur family member. but again I send my true blessing to you and your family!!

  • Janet Locke Dukes

    He was our son, he was not perfect neither of us are but this did not have to have happened.

    We will ignore these hurtful comments afterall we all enjoy our first ammendment rights.

    I only hope non of you ever have to bring a son or loved on home in a closed casket never to be viewed again by his father and step-mother because he was stabbed so very many times in the head and neck. 41 is much to young to bury one’s son. I pray for you all.

    • MIA

      Mrs./Ms. Locke Dukes I am very sorry to hear what happend to your son NOT even to people I hate would I say such words to hurt the family that is still living.. I just can’t Believe how Ed, Pat, Joe & Rick could make such ignorant rude comments.. really all you can do is just to by pass all the ignorants cause they were never thought the right way

  • friend of victim

    james was a friend of mine, and those of you disrespecting without having any idea who he is are just as horrible as the people out there with weapons

    • MIA

      very well said

  • Janet Locke Dukes

    Thank you Mia and all of James friends that are in sorrow. He is coming home today and will arrive in Fresno at midnight.

    His service will be in Fresno this Saturday at 10:30 with a luncheon to follow.

    God bless you all.

  • Vic Lucero

    I am a friend of Stacy and he called today regarding your loss, my condonences…we lost a cousin last year under similar situation…I understand your grief.

  • Ryan Kimberly

    I was informed about this today. James was a dear friend and ex. I am deeply distraught by what happened. James was a compassionate, supportive, and loving individual. He didn’t deserve this. Robbed his life by some spineless 22 yo piece of flaming excrement. He’s lucky the cops got to him before I. The love I have and have had for years for James will never cease. Know that my heart goes out to the Dukes family. He will be truly missed in my heart.
