Rumor Control from Monrovia contains slight error

This comes from the Monrovia City Rumor Control Web page: Except it contains an error or two:

RUMOR CONTROL

 

A 16-year-old was wounded in a driveby shooting in County territory on Sunday, January 13. The shooting was in front of his home on Peck Road, not at a school.

A Canyon High School student was killed and another teen wounded in another shooting incident January 26, also on Peck Road.

A suspect has been arrested in the Jan. 13 shooting. Monrovia Police have also arrested two gang members as suspects in a shooting that took place on Cypress Avenue.

Investigations are continuing and arrests are being made as the recent flare-up of gang violence continues throughout the region.

Crime Scene responds.

When he was shot on Jan. 13, Day Day was bicycling just outside the grounds of Calvary Church and within a block or two of the Catholic School. CLARIFIED 13:25:52 1-30-08

Sammantha Salas, who was killed on Jan. 26,  attended Alhambra High School as was reported here yesterday and confirmed by district officials there. No arrest has been made in the shooting of Salas.

    MAH-

    Please clarify your concern. Are you Mexican, and wishing the gangsters that plague your area were treated harsher?

    Or are you Black, and wishing that the idiot thugs who bring violence to your neighborhood got treated nicer?

    I’m confused. Especialy if you’re from the second camp.

    All this going on in Monrovia gets me sick to my stomach. There is so many innocent people getting killed and hurt. I don’t understand minority killing minority. This racial stuff many times starts from the home many parents don’t teach their children that we are all of different color but we all bleed the same blood. My children know it don’t matter what color you are you respect every color. Parents teach your children something. Im speaking of those who teach their kids to have no respect for other colors. It saddens me to hear of all these killing and injuries happening, for what? Does not make Blacks better than Mexicans or Mexicans better than blacks it just gives the others more to talk about and put down the black and Mexicans degrade them both. I hope the police really step up their obligation to protect and serve and let’s not pretend this is a gang related issue when my 14 year old son knows this is a racial issue. Oh and by the way I am involved in a bi-racial relationship and my children were taught to love and respect all colors that is why I have no problems with my kids or my family maybe with a few ignorant friends who don’t know better. WHY CAN’T WE ALL GET ALONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you Mr. Giradot. Someone needs to keep those people at Monrovia’s Ministry of Truth Honest.

    We all know they are inacapable of giving news without a spin. The only reason they have been talking about this as the blogs and people in town saw it kept talking about it.

    I have asked in the past for the ability to post corrections on their Rumor Control page. They don’t and won’t as it is opposite the sping they want on it.

    Concern Person, this is a gang issue on racial lines.
    I live here, from where I sit the entire is pissed that our kids are getting hurt. We are pissed that the two factions opted to totally disrespect their ethnic and cultural heritage bringing hatred, fear and robbing one more element of our kids childhood away. Ever walk into your kids school and they are doing “sniper drills”?

    Put the blame for the escalation where it belongs, the city manager and the elected officials he reports to for painting the fairy tale “Mayberry RFD” view and hiding the truth. We have problems but as a community no one can fix them if they are hidden away.

    Shame on all of you in city hall and your fake “outrage”. The community deserves better.

    The senseless killing between Hispanics and Blacks has now spread over to the innocent that have no gang ties only the same skin color. Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson or does it have to be a celebrity black person for them to come out. These animals need to be stopped. I think law enforcement must round up anyone that looks like a gangbanger on the street and run them thru a check system just to get them off the streets. This should not be happening and if Latinos and Blacks want to kill for the game of it then there is a war in Iraq we can send them to.

  • usagain

    Concern Person raises a very interesting point about how many young Latinos and AA’s who are not gang members may be temtpted to perpetuate racist attitudes. I can only imagine the herd mentality running rampant in local high schools.

    While local govt and law enforcement (presumably) have a strategy in place, the community should search for ways to combat this terror. I’m beginning to think one of the strongest weapons in our arsenal is the POWER OF STORY. The media (both print and tv) need to tell stories of those who have been senselessly murdered. We need to feeel eachothers pain.

    I agree with the fact that the mayor and his co. of closes friends while they are not commiting the crimes they have 1) allowed it to get this far and 2) encouraged the never ending growth of Monrovia they want the city to keep growing but when the new houses are built on California and Duarte what will they tell the prospectove homeowners, call LASD not the MPD? You can use our schools, patronize our businesses but anything else contact the county? There are some beautiful homes in the $770,00 range in the Mayflower Village. They cost that much because they have a Monrovia or Arcadia address not Los Angeles, CA 91016. But since they love saying how all this keeps happening in the county lines, Sherman, Cypress and Almond are all Monrovia. Not far from our banks, schools, churches, and school district office.
    Though I am thankful that they finally admitted (without saying) that they cant handle it anymore. Otherwise, why would LASD be the lead investigators on the shooting last night on Almond? That with out my pedometer on is about 1/2 mile from the police station.

  • confused too

    i believe that the person that commented on the blacks house’s being raided, was simply saying, there should not be any leniency on any one. when the little girl was murdered it was stated that she was a student and was not a gang member, and every one had compassion for the grieving family, however; when the young man was murdered it was mentioned that he was a “young man” it was not mentioned that he was not a gang member nor that he was a prosperous college student with a positive goal. Instead his grieving family was subjected to getting they’re house raided, before the blood was cold in his body. you expect our children to respect each others race and cultural background when you show them its a difference by the way you respond to acts such as this, its a tragic lost for all the grieving families. that was a horrible message given by the law enforcement. Instead of pursuing the individuals responsible they were trying to prove that there was justification for the young man being killed on almond by raiding his home. since all this has happened there has been nothing mentioned about any of the rival gang members houses being raided nor did the police raid the little girl’s house to see if she had any gang ties. her family was allowed to grieve in peace. the only way to stop these killings is to treat “all” of these gang’s the same. “ZERO TOLORENCE” for both sides.
