12 - years - old. 12.
There's lot of this kind of thing lately(though this is young)...some kind of escalating war
that nobody seems to be specifically reporting.
This happened west of Highway 101 near the West Bayshore frontage road between 7-11 and University Avenue. No matter where it happened, it is one too many - and now children. How does law enforcement get a handle on this?
The culture of EPA is killing them! It's the people, not the cops, that are going to help this city.
East Palo Alto is home to those who are hungry and in need like those in the story I have just read who were fed last week by Como Esta. East Palo Alto is home to gangs who don't care about the preciousness of human life. Unfortunately the poor have to live in the same neighborhood as the gangs. I hope that the families of those who are poor enough to need practical, charitable help, manage to raise their families to not get involved in gangs. But how can they raise their families without the fear that this violence will not reach them?
From what I've learned, many gang members are indoctrinated into that life style at a very young age. Yes, sometimes as young as 11 or 12. If that's the case, this could be another example of gang violence, and not one of an innocent, unsuspecting young person being gunned down on the street. Very sad regardless.

When the baby was killed I had hopes that the shooters would reconsider their ways.
But sadly they are not listening to their parents, teachers or police.
They don't want to believe that they can change their ways or that life could get any better.
They just keep choosing their downward spiral.. ending in jail or death.
Do they really believe in their hearts that this is a good thing?
If they were to ask the rest of how we feel.... I am sure they would be met with a very loud and STRONG NO!
Don't miss out on the discussion!
