The shooting of a Hispanic male juvenile Tuesday on Lodi’s Eastside is likely the latest event in a rash of gang-related attacks in the area this week, Lodi Police officers said.

Sunday night in Lodi saw separate evening shootings about three miles from each other in less than two hours. Both assaults sent victims with alleged Norteño affiliations to local hospitals.

    What needs to be done is a Outreach Program for those who can be reached .The O.G's of these gangs are the one's you need start with . For these are the guys they look up to . If you reach those guys , they can help reach the youngsters who are doing 90% of the crime in our neighborhoods . Change doesn't come over night . This has been along time problem that has been swept under the rug for many years so it will take many years to break it down ... But until the people step up and take there city back ,we will be victims to these street wars. To those who don't understand why they fight you probably never will!!! To you its dumb and senseless!!! to them its a way of life . I'm all for peace on our streets but it's not possible until we understand the streets and the kids and men who run them .As a father of four I'm scared for there safety, as they walk the streets , you like think they are safe but as times change safe zones change too !

    Learn to have understanding and not so much critisizm ppl.
    gangs are a bad influence to anyone.... but violence is natural. has been since the dawn of time. lean to understand it !! a young undeveloped but influnced mind is dangerous. like a private with no insignia in the middle of WAR. cant really critisize the next young human just cause you made it to 59 years old and feel free to gloat over gang shooting or death but commiserate over another. in short, if ya don't like crime; then learn to fight it yourself (which is still a natural instinct of violence)
    Programs work

    Be smart---be alert--be on guard---be prepared for the worst.
    The bad guys are here and the police cannot protect you---they can only do what they can do.

    Retaliation, remember that word. Even sarcastic comments on these blogs don't go unnoticed. Word of warning for you naive Lodians that don't realize nor have any street skills that the gang life is very common on Lodi's eastside amongst the poor and forgotten minorities that LPD and the city of Lodi management team and good old white boy controlled 3 votes on city council deny that gangs are a major problem here and probably fear for their own safety by completely ignoring the problem and are afraid to rattle the cages of the gang leadership lest they get hurt or exposed themselves. Why not try to create opportunities for these youths rather than continuing down the path of denial?

    Mr. Hamilton, what do you expect? Most likely his brothers AND father are gang members. Prison to these punks are like most kids going to college. They learn gang relationships and ways to further their gang activities. Although there are "gangs' across the ethnic spectrum, the vast majority are latinos. Oh yeah, open our borders so more of them can take over. Drug cartels in Mexico, coming to a town near you soon....
