    The City of San Gabriel is teeming with asian gang activity. Hispanic gangs like Sangra are no longer a threat they have almost no power. Asian Boys (AB), Vietnamese Boys (VB), 4 Seas, West Side V-Boys (WSVB) etc. There are hundreds of small businesses that are fronts for asian gang money laundering schemes, there are too many mom and pops shops that “sell” products that no longer have a market. How can a type-writer repair shop still be in business all these years? Don’t even get me started about Maguire’s Bar/night club/brothel and the whore house New Century Inn. The City Council needs to stop hoarding the millions of dollars for themselves and the San Gabriel County Club and finance an adequate and effective police force with an organized gang task force. there are only around 45 police officers for a city whose population is well over 150,000. i advise any citizen of san gabriel to go on a ride-along with a member of the san gabriel police department so they can see that there are no more than four patrol cars active during a 24 hr. shift. San Gabriel is a safe haven for asian gangsters this shooting is an incident that will be the first of many

  • Bring the Sheriff

    All the San Gabriel Police Dept is good for is hanging at the local 7-11, and pulling people over for speeding and writing tickets. They obviously can’t handle homicide crimes because the Sheriff has to come in. And the city, don’t even get me started. They can’t even pave all the streets, with all the money they hoard from Valley Blvd, you would think the city would at least be well off. I’ve been living on a street that hasn’t been paved for millions of years. Obviously something is wrong with the city and there are definitely shady businesses operating in the area.

    I would expect most of the cities with independent police forces call the sheriff in for 187′s. They have resources most smaller police departments can’t afford.

    BTW, San Gabriel’s population is about 40,000, which is not “well over 150,000.”

    San Gabriel Police are way to slow to respond to calls there so dumb that they cant even catch any purse snatchers in the act. Trust and believe SANGRA is still an threat to many there still strong and organize to the fullest

    San Gabriel police is one of the most corrupt police departments that need to be shut down. My mexican neighbor said he got pulled over in the drive-through at Carl’s Jr. because the cop said he just “looked” suspicious…and an asian family that was just drinking together at their own house got hit by a policeman and suddenly attacking everyone..If there is a such thing as karma then the San Gabriel Police Department should have been investigated and shut down a long time ago..oh, and someone I know was held at the San Gabriel Police Station and said he saw some guy get beat up by cops in the station as if it was a regular thing that they do..They prey on poor people thinking that they can’t defend themselves or do anything about these crooked cops…I still believe in Karma!!

    I heard about this shooting a while back ago..I heard the San Gabriel Police Department took their precious time responding to it and that they didn’t do much about it because when it’s possibly a gang involved that they don’t care. I also heard they always call for help from nearby city police because they can do anything right!
