    Those street gang members are cowards.

  2. Dave in LA says:

    Society does not need persons such as him. And that includes ALL gang-members. Many, many people are sick and tired of the graffiti, killings, thefts, etc. done by gang-hoodlums.
    YAY to all the law-enforcement men who nabbed and convicted this young punk.

    The state will never execute this guy or anyone else sitting on death row. California has too many bleeing heart liberals.
