    Hispanics shooting each other at a party. Now that’s a real shocker, huh?

    • denise

      how can u know more then the police? obviously u dont know what the whole story was about so i suggest to read it all and go back to school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • denise

    u know its not the guys fault for protecting a girl from an uninvited guest. if anything they should of caught the guy who did it and they should of never let him in the house. so do not be saying that they were gang members when u do not even know what really happen so i think u should read the whole story before u open ur mouth and make racist comments. u contributing and creating a bad enviroment for us american kids growing up in a racist society.

  • Everyday Guy

    It is quite clear this was a MENSA party and the argument was over the laws of thermodynamics.

  • denise

    it was a graduation party mr science guy. didnt u read the whole story?

  • denise

    just because they were at the graduation party doesnt mean they were gang members. for ur information only small percentages of hispanics r gang members. i suggest that u read up on ur statistics.

    • skylark

      the real answer is that only a small percentage of hispanics graduate.

      • steph

        shut your ass up.

      • denise

        excuse me maybe u should if u dont know what this is about

  • denise

    more gurads to people like u away from the border and not to endanger inocent people with ur racist comment.

  • denise

    they r not talking about birthday parties. it was a graduation party.

  • Shayk

    It’s a very simple, centuries old, global equation: don’t be part of a gang or affiliate with members of a gang(s) and live a conflict free life. And if you are one of those who generate excuses tp the contrary, than you are a HUGE part of the problem.

    • denise

      yea but just beacuse they listen to rap music doesnt mean they r joining a gang.

    • denise

      no cause they were just enjoying themselves before the uninvited guest showed up.

      • "wake -up- people"

        they were listening to black music hip-hop & rap. when you listen to that music your inviting gang members!!!

  • Shayk

    While appreciate your positivie outlook, Denise, 9.9 times out of 10, evidence will show the contrary. Again, unsavory affiliations of any kind, whether it be those of the hosts or of the guests, bring about unfortunate outcomes.

    • denise

      9.9 out of 10 thats a high percentage. i dont believe ur numbers r correct ur just guessing. a famous american writer said all generilations r bad including mine. mark twain

    Why is Denise an idiotic Julia who is soon to join the losers in the story unless she learns how to spell correctly? The answer is that she’s a Julia; enough said.

    • steph

      haha… she’s a julia? lol just cause she cant ‘spell correctly” doesnt mean anything YOU UNDERSTOOD WHAT SHE SAID AND THATS IT end of storry… what now?

  • Sean

    Pomona is so ghetto. The shooting isn’t a surprise. The latino graduating is.

    • Stan

      The spic must have got a G.E.D. (Ghetto Excrement Degree). LOL! These anchor babies run amuck because their parents just have kids to stay in this country and never raise them correct. Then they claim to be citizens because they were born here. Look, you are not real citizens as your parents were wetters and you will always be 2nd class citizens and NEVER be considered real Americans!
