Welcome to Mexico North, this is a high illegal alien area and I bet this is the result of unassimilated immigrants/illegal aliens coming in through our open borders.

In Mexico they don't stop at beating and running over people they disagree with, they decapitate them.


The story doesn't mention the races of the people involved.

The LA Times never mentions race if suspected illegal aliens are involved, or their immigration status unless they are in deportation proceedings. Hawthorne is 45% Hispanic en.wikipedia.org...

At first I've read "Deadly CA crashes end with man eaten by a mob".
I was like : "damn, Cali's becoming ruthless these days".

Beaten ain't that nice too.

yeah...(yawn)...a normal day in LA...c'mon you think stuff like this doesn't happen in other parts of the U.S.?
who are you kidding, just another day bashing california. and yes, i live in california.


If you actually think this is normal, you need to get out of there. No its not normal anywhere else IMHO.

The article said the police were thinking about whether or not to press charges against the second hit and run driver??
WTF is there to think about? That alone is bizarre.

Could it be then that only 45% of the people involved in this situation were Hispanic? That's less than half.

To make up for it they decided to let him fix the state's budget woes.

So by that rationale, there is a 55% chance they were not hispanic! Oh my gosh! Thanks for bringing that up! The violent white people are getting out of hand there. If you are going to bring up a statistic to prove a racist point, at least make sure it statistically supports your xenophobic assumption. Where the hell did you go to racist school at, anyway?!

Well this is completely appalling.

To say this isn't surprising and happens a lot (in the states) is, I think, not accurate.

Yes, we get the occassional story of someone being hurt and no one stopping to help. That alone is bad enough and happens WAY too often (seems to only be in bigger cities). In the past couple years it happened in Seattle so now our State adopted new laws where you can actually be charged with a crime if you witness something like that and don't at least report it. Sad.

But this situation goes a step beyond. I wouldn't be so surprised to read about this in a third world country(where food is scarce and crime rampant), but LA? Perhaps some of our bigger cities are reaching that status. This is not a bash on California, but big cities in general.

This is just the way it is anymore and its a very sad state. I live in a small town. If an older lady tripped stepping over a curb, numerous people (old and young) would stop to help her. (she would probably be swamped) When a drunk from one of the bars down-town end up in the street....just about every car driving by will at least call 911 and there will be at least one cop car, an ambulance and a fire truck there in under ten minutes. When there is a robbery, quite often a civilian will either try to stop it physically or follow the vehicle to update dispatch and let them know where they are going. In the past few years as employment has gone down and drug use/crime has gone up all over the place, it has affected us as well. Small town folks don't play the victim very well though. We have had a few armed robberies in the past three years. Only one got away. The other two were shot dead by law enforcement. Another guy that went on a rampage with a gun was also shot and killed by law enforcement (after he drew his gun on him). This is a town with a population of around 9,000. It is rural and there are a whole lotta gun owners. Criminals get away with way too much due to our soft laws, but when it comes to assault or strong arm robberies they know there is good chance not to end well if done in our town. People also know that we will take care of each other. We are still a community, which is what this country is losing rapidly....that sense of all being part of the same thing.

I visited New York for the first time last year. It was an amazing city, the architecture is what fascinated me the most. But you know what? I know now where those zombie stories come from. I was surrounded by thousands of them the whole time I was there. At one point on the subway, my husband and I had to stand in the middle becuase it was full. We were talking and laughing and as I is common where we come from, tried to make eye contact and acknowledge people. At least smiling or saying hi. Wow. Not in New York. Looking around that subway I just got chills. Not ONE person would even look my way. They were all staring blankly in front of them, heads bobbing, totally oblivious to the people or world around them. It seriously kinda freaked me out. That day walking around, I was literally in a sea of people but felt completely alone. Very, very odd. I do not want to go back.

I will NEVER live in a large city, and avoid going to them for these reasons. Our society IS breaking down and this article (story) is just one symptom of it.

PLEASE...PLEASE never, ever accept this as NORMAL.

My sentiments exactly. Sounds like you live in my town, actually. I don't think it's so much a matter of size as it is desensitization. People in small towns are exposed to less so they are more apt to deal with it. There are bigger cities that manage to keep that mentality (Oslo is a great example) but it has to grow with the goal of community and not capital.

There is a race war going on in this area: www.splcenter.org...

This occurance can be termed mass anarchy, lawlessness, right? Illegal immigration is lawlessness, distain for the law by many people, which carries over to many other areas of life beside breaking immigration laws and ID fraud.

I still bet the people involved were of different races, and some of them were Hispanics who illegally entered the USA, or their parents did.

If anyone else wants to bet the opposite I'm OK with that, I am just posting my opinion based on past activities in this area, I could always be wrong.

Actually I took my masters classes at USC.

I have hired employees of every race for my company, my daughter is an adopted Chinese orphan, and I am part Native American.

Hmmm..Crenshaw and LA Blvd such a lovely part of town. I was not far from this area during the riots in the early 90's. I lived in LA for many yrs until I had my fill and had seen enough. I can only compare some of the areas in LA to third world countries. Still have a lot of good friends there, but haven't been back since I left. As one comedian said, "If God was to give the world an enema he would stick it in LA".

That doesn't change what (it sounded like) you were implying. Obviously, you didn't mean it to sound like it did so that's reason enough to forget about it.

On a side-note: Just because somebody is ethnically diverse doesn't excuse a person from racism. Otherwise that would mean ethnically homogeneous families/societies would be classified as racist by default. I'm over it if you are.

Touchy touchy. It was a joke. There actually isn't a Hate U.

If you were wondering...

The way you presented the story rings of mob mentality and anarchy. In reality, upon reading the story, it appears as though the mob mentality was brought about not because of anarchy, but because the people were fed up with the 'hit and runs' they just witnessed, and wanted justice.

I think it's weird anyone took his cellphone but it was probably because he wanted to call the police on them, and they wanted him to suffer for running over a lady who was trying to protect a ran-over man.


I hope you are spoofing. If not, then if you are "fed up" it's ok to hurt innocent people? And, where is the cell phone the "good citizen" turned over to the police?

Heh. What racist school did you go to, too? The other 55% don't have to be all white. Don't forget there are black folks and Asian folks in California, too. And Native Americans as well.

people in LA may be complete asses sometimes, but you've got to love the lizards if not for the sole fact that pop music wouldn't be what it is today without this cesspool.

You know, with all this that happened in LA, which according to some happens everywhere, shouldn't this kind of behavior be the focus of the government instead of the so called "terrorists"?

How many people do you think die in incidents like this every month? or year... I bet it's higher that deaths from "terrorism"...

Here's the real threat to Americans...
