    Morerno Valley aks east compton, i5 years ago a country westren town, good old welfare from LOS ANG> is sending all the low lifers to the Inland Empire.

    I agree with Igor. If you go to Inland Empire now and check out the people around you, 95% are hispanic. Then you realize how low the living standard is in Inland Empire. You know, those child molesters, gang bangers, robbers, DUIs and burglars. It might be very common in their own country but they decided to bring along their culture across the border. Real estate value is no way to go up mainly because of their population and living style. That’s sad.

    1. The Big Logic says:

      This is Nigra activity, not Mex. Don’t know about the population demographics, but you’re probably correct about the 95% number. However, like I stated, this is the Nigra’s’ modus operandi.
