    Wait... all the names sound like they come from the same culture. Gallegos, Hernandez. Gonzalez, Huerta, Aguilar, Mendoza.

    Do they know they aren't helping with the stereotypes some people have for them by doing stuff like this?

    And is it any wonder we would like to check the background of people who want to join our society? They were probably born here, but still... this isn't the way you show you belong. Is it?

    I know there are many great people and great citizens with these names doing great things in our community also. But they don't get any coverage in the News Paper, so when people constantly see stories like this... it just feeds the stereotypes and the racism in our culture.

    I hope these boys do better in the future. But chances aren't great. Once you join a gang it's hard to get out and be a great citizen that helps the community instead of endangering the community. A few do it, but not many.
