    I laugh at some of the ignorant posts here. The Lodi PD is a joke compared to other cities the size of Lodi. Every city has gangs but its how law enforcement within that city handles the situation and conducts preventative measures to prevent the problem from growing by being proactive instead of reactive, spending money on teen centers and other outlets, investing in the young adults of Lodi instead of spending money on giving raises to the city counsel and spending hundreds of thousands of city money hiring some outside consultant to help monitor Lodi's growth and I can go on and on Lodi PD and its city counsel have no idea how to handle the situation, locking them up is one way but not the solution because you lock one up and 3-4 others are getting into the gang, why doesnt Tracy or Elk Grove (a little bigger than Lodi) or any other city here locally the size of Lodi not have a big issue with gangs like Lodi does? Real simple the mayor of Lodi the city counsel are a joke, the city of Lodi does not invest in its youth like other cities do.

    Lpd needs to do what Sacramento does ..... Starts handing out citations to known gang members if there are two or more gathered. It's not going to stop until until an innocent person is dead. Lpd is awesome at what they do but maybe they don't have what is needed in Lodi, we need big boys that know about controlling these gangs, and us as residents need to report any unusual activities we see and Ldp needs to start listening. I once called to report a little group wearing red at 1am just standing on a corner and I was told If they are not doing anything wrong a unit could not be sent out.....don't they het it??

    pressure. It is you linking illegals and leftists, I made no such statement. Gangs have nothing to do with whom hires who.You seem to take offense easily re comment on T and C. THEY are mainly Norteno and Sureno gang members. Is that clear enough?The LNS always puts the city in the best possible light, just like they do in my town. The investment in downtown will always trump the peoples right to know.If there is a gob infestation, then work to clean them out, but you will need a lot of help.

    T&C, who are you referring to as "they"? Wowerzz, LPD doesn't want to offend the Lodi wine tourism industry by printing any adverse articles about crime, especially gangs. They are aided by the local paper that keeps them out of their paper. Call the Sentinel and ask Mr. Weybret why he's afraid to print these stories, and usually on the 3rd page or a tiny article in the regional roundup. The good old boys will always take care of one another. Chevyman, shouldn't they shake down everyone that "looks"suspicious, no matter what their color or sex? And wdsjr, didn't GW Bush have an illegal housekeeper he was employing? Why equate illegals with only the leftists? And T&C, you're still an angry little man yet today.

    we hollar because law enforcement doesn't do more about the gang members, but we tie law enforcement's hands with this "politically correct" nonsense. The blue and red gangs are mostly hispanic, but to just put an end to them would be "picking on hispanics." I wish they would all go to a vacant lot somewhere and have a major shoot out, but this is not likly to happen. I agree with Giovanina, but the key is letting the officers do their job without all the political nonsense.

    Not long ago, I said the laxed policies of law enforcement toward illegal aliens and gang bangers would bring more violent crime to this little town. The only responses I saw were the lefties in here yelling racist! I hope you or your kids don't get caught up in the middle of a future shootout because it looks like they are coming. OR we can kick the illegal aliens and the gangs out.
