A cultural tradition

Weekend party turns violent as Gresham police attacked
Police today said 38 officers responded Saturday to a birthday party that turned into a riot, in what Gresham police are saying is the city's largest melee in almost 20 years.

The riot stemmed from a Quinceanera, a celebration for a Latina turning 15. Police said more than 100 people attended the party, and many appeared intoxicated.

The event was held at GSI Community Center, 1493 N.E. Cleveland Ave., where police have been called 20 times in the past 18 months. Officers said they have been assaulted there six times.

The news report last night absolutely refused to mention that this is a Mexican cultural thing. The online text version of that newscast can be seen here. Sounds like this was just a cultural misunderstanding and the officers who responded, and where assaulted for their trouble, should probably get some diversity training.

If this is NOT a Cultural thing (more 3rd world chaos), I want someone to post a News article where other Parties for Teens with Parents there have had Police called in and Harrassed over once a Month for the last 1 1/2 years.

They were following the Miglavian dictate of English only. One would think YOU might appreciate that. Guess it just depends on whether the situation can be milked for bigotry, doesn't it Miglavs?

What situation was milked for bigotry. The bigotry of Americans who don't want shitloads of drunk vandalizing hispanics getting into a riot in their neighborhood? Why don't you volunteer to have the next party at your house and hopefully you have young kids. If not, bring some young family members so they can learn all the facts of our new culture. I'm sure you don't want any kids in your family growing up to be bigots. They need to learn about diversity and multiculturalism. I'm sure they will enjoy the benefits like young kids being raped and murdered. Other family members can enjoy their jobs being stolen, they can pay for their medication, education and incarceration. How about the new mexican fad, cutting the heads off of people. Don't be a bigot now.

Oh, so since Daniel actually made no mention whatsoever of the presumed legality or "illegality" of the people attending the event, we can assume that he's simply worried about the prospect of being overrun by "drunk vandalizing Hispanics," as you say, or Hispanics who "rape and murder." And since it's hardwired into the DNA of Hispanics everywhere, after all, to get drunk and commit vandalism, and rape, murder and cut people's heads off, we really need to be freaked out by ALL of them. Yeah, I guess you're right. No bigotry there!

Drunken Criminal Illegal Alien Invaders are causing PoPo a lot of problems. IMO, they should have simply sealed the doors and allowed them to kill each other.

The comments of Anon 853 and Anon 117 and Anon 531 have got to be the absolute dumbest things I have read on this posting. These clowns are apparently blaming Daniel for the idiocy of the fatheads in Gresham. How stupid can that be?

They don't realize that Daniel is not the blame for everything that goes wrong in this corner of Oregon.

If he reports on whatever the situation might be or if he comments on it, one way or another, the cause of the problem is his fault, the outcome, good or bad, is his fault, an anything in between is his fault.

These idiots really need to get either a life or intense counseling.

But we know when that is going to happen, don't we?

Didn't I read somewhere on this blog that Daniel and his little incestuous brood like to play family fight club? I guess people who live in trailer parks shouldn't throw stones...

Anon 914 has once again proven to everyone here that when you have no real counterpoint to what is posted, it is time to go on the attack and start with the libelous practice of name calling.

At least he didn't drop the f-bomb with every other word like one of the forever nameless and very inconsequential Anonymouses does all too frequently.

Update: half a dozen of the participants in that set of festivities are now on ICE holds.

Funny how every time you see the mug shots of drug dealers or mules on TV it's always hispanics who are later found to be illegal aliens.
