" . . . they have not been able to determine what led to the fight."

The initial and proximal causes of the majority of these fights are, respectively, ignorance and alcohol.

Causes? Really? How about: poverty, desperation, surplus repression, perhaps drugs/alcohol (an understandable response to previously mentioned), perhaps competing love interests, all manifested in a blind, violent rage. Ah, I guess the above poster's Fox News explanation is simpler and feeds our pre-existing biases.

Brad, how about ignorance, false pride, poor breeding, weak morals and victimization by liberal interests. Oh yeah, this might apply to the dirtbag combatants, too.

The name Serpa is quite common in Milan, Italy. Perhaps he's not "Hispanic".

as for "Steve" or rather Steffie, go soak your head in ice water!

Cholo, did you never learn how to read? "Jesse Serpa, a 33-year-old Hispanic man from Livermore"

I guess I understand your need to protect your barrio compadres...gotta love the company you keep.

The sick one suggests we believe all that we read in the newspaper -- you know, straight from all those diseased liberals who run the lamestream press. Got it? Too damaged to reflect upon self, the sick one can only project his self hatred toward others. Likely Hispanic or part-Hispanic himself, it is especially Hispanics whom he so loathes, as they become the placemarker for all that is corrupt in the sick one's soul.

I agree with Liberalism, Steve and Friendly.
These people love to make excuses for bad behavior.
I got censored by PW for saying ghetto...surprised that
they didn't censor 'barrio'..... Same difference....
Different color I guess. Some people don't see the light
of day. They will wonder what happened to our valley
after the fact that it's too late. Wake up people!!!!
...yes I used that phrase!....independently too!

Also.....who is it that defaces other people's property by
tagging and graffiti????...trespassing on others property????
Must be those 'poor' white kids. Give us a break.
We're not the criminals for calling things as they are
as we see them.

Serpa is not "Hispanic". Can't believe everything you read in the press.

What is a "Hispanic"? What is a "White" man?
