I LOVE it when the LAPD and Sheriff's departments be catching these domestic terrorists and bullies that call themselves gang members.

The Newton area is bad that's why they call it "Shootin Newton." I wouldn't want to be a street cop in the Newton area even if the LAPD gave me a $1 million/per year salary.

I remember reading about this story on and being disgusted by another gang set messing with an innocent person.

Ivan Hernandez (one of the suspects) and his homeboys humiliated the victim by trying to rob him, and THEN if that humiliation wasn't enough this Hernandez and/or one of homies decided to kill the victim.

If this Hernandez dude or one of his homeboys pulled the trigger, I hope the District Attorney, the judge, and the prosecutor throw the book at Hernandez and investigate the gang set he was from.
