    5’4″ ?!? With a thin build?

    You kiddin me?!? My 12 year old daughter could take him down.

    When is the public gonna stop bein so afraid and fighting back in some cases.

    Dodger Stadium. Thousands of people around. Two Latinos jump on 1 guy. The other two ran. If I seen that I woulda jumped on the Latinos jus on GP and if no one else helped, I’m sure my wife woulda jumped in too.

    Now $150K offered and still no suspects captured!

    Sad what our society is turning into. I would turn in my Mom for that and just made sure she had money on her books to buy hot Cheetoes and top ramen.

    Then remodeled her bedroom and added a 52″ flat screen mounted on the wall.

    Latino 5’4″ in South Gate? Like searching for a needle in a Haystack.

      Fortunately, this little pervert does not resemble the common latino… this guy looks more like a frog.

      The problem with that is that there are more rapists in those neighborhoods than people think. They are let out of jail, or not caught, and forgotten. People think that as long as these offenders aren’t in the rich neighborhoods, it’s not a problem.
