Police and Tokay High School officials are looking for suspects who spray-painted gang graffiti all over the school.

The vandalism was discovered around 6 a.m. Wednesday morning when a janitor arrived at the 1111 W. Century Blvd. campus. The large, crude, spray-painted letters and gang symbols covered most buildings.

    Start by putting the U.S. Flags on the poles downtown all year long. The flags represent a law abiding citizenry, and the Surenos and Nortenos don't follow the laws. Yes, the police said that there were now whites and blacks in these gangs but they never last long. As the gangs get bigger they get more ethnocentric. That was just all PC talk to stifle any racist profiling talk. Most gangs are racist and ethncoentric.A patriotic citizenry is a big deterrent to gangs. A citizenry that looks like it is ignoring the problem or fearful, will get more of that problem. That is always the end result.

"the community of Lodi needs to rise up and say NO to gangs. This is why LA got taken because people were fearful. Gangs will not stay in a town that visibly says NO! It is when the people of Lodi turn Mad Dog, that they will leave. Our gang Detectives are not an experienced LA county CRASH unit. The gang program would see results in about 5 years, if accepted. There are other measures that are needed, now.

    I believe the alarms are inside the buildings not outside on the walkways.

    I wouldn't be bragging too much, dogs, although I agree with most of what you have to say. I was at the gang intervention meeting and I admire you for your bravery. But that same bravery could easily have gotten you targeted for retaliation. And if you thik that they have short memories, that's not good. Talk to the officers assigned to the gang unit and you'll see just how veangeful they can be. And that's why most of them are in a gang, because they aren't able to defend themselves and if they even try, they'll be beaten by that same gang until they're forced to join or move. Call the LPD and let them handle it and save yourself some retaliation down the road. They're all packin" nowadays, so bravery is not the solution.

    I saw these big brave bangers in action right in the middle of Lodi Ave. It was a real fair fight, if you call 4 on 1 fair. They knocked the poor kids down and kicked and punched the s--- out of him. Then ran away, real brave. If the bangers are going to seek revenge, it will be at least 4 on 1, in your back or in the middle of the night. Not so brave when confronted 1 on 1. Bravo to LPD for trying to keep a lid on these azz holes.

    Sorry that we disagree T&C. What is lame is that people want to damage public property (private property as well) and get away with it. I have confronted a violent gang member personally. He went down and was taken to jail. Me? Not a scratch. Big mean gang members are not immune to pepper spray.

    mad dog, why don't you go and spray their house with graffiti and see how many bullet holes will be in your front windows tonight? That's a pretty lame blog. Anyone that snitches on the gangbangers will pay the price through retaliation. Why do you think so few police calls to the LPD from the crime infested area? You call, you pay. Lodi is in the first stages of starting a crime intervention program for the gang youths and that will include working not only with them but the citizens of the eastside to help solve these problems.

    LNS, thank you for not showing a photo of the graffiti. That is was the gang bangers want... publicity. Never give it to them and keep painting over their "ttrash".

    When the graffiti suspects are captured, perhaps the students of Tokay High School should be allowed to spray anything they want on the suspect's house.
