Frightening. I have never known anyone who would be involved in this type of violence. It's shameful that these men think this type of violence and cruelty is acceptable.

It is also shameful that this is going to receive so many xenophobic comments. This is definitely not helping us solve our social problems.

Sexism is a universal problem. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior from men. Real men treat other people with respect, ALL people. "Macho" behavior has no place in a diverse society.

The problem is that we allow some crimes (illegal immigration), but not others (kidnapping). So when someone an illegal immigrant is kidnapped, they do not report it for fear of being deported.

Why does Jesse's comment get removed for asking if the location was in the same area as the Day Work Center. How is that either adisrespectful comment or offensive language? Talk about manipulating the public!

Jesse's comment was in no way offensive and should not have been removed.

Selective free speech is active everywhere. Facts are this clown should have never had the chance to commit a crime if certain laws were enforced instead of turning a blind eye to the actual problem and cause of most of the city's criminal element.
