    First of all let me tell you the kind of gangs we have here in Lexington, because we DO have them here, it's just not really a gang, it's just KIDS FROM SCHOOLS!!! that had been corrupted by TV and Movies and don't even know what they're really getting into, I mean they sit together at school on lunch hours!?!?!? what is that!?!?!? and now they're killing each other. At first, fist fights and now we have gotten this far, what is it that this kids want? I knew this kid and he wasn't a bad person he didn't deserved to die... QUE DIOS TE BENDIGA Luis... (bad choices lead to bad endings, think about it)

    The gangs are already here. You just don't hear about them because any mention of the reality by the media will bring calls of racism, etc.

    I welcome legal immigration into the United States (it's how we all got here)...but it's sad to see that there's this gang-related stuff going on. My thoughts to this boy's family this holiday.

    People need to take note of this homicide and the many we have had and will have with a growing hispanic and hispanic "GANG" problem. Pretty soon I think you will see a significant increase if something isn't done. I think the media should really take a look at and ask questions about these gangs and past murders.
