Homicide in Hollenbeck: Join the AC360° Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight on 360°, we take you back to Hollenbeck, an area in L.A., where we brought you a documentary on gangs five years ago. Has the stop snitchin' code changed? Plus, we're keeping them honest in Haiti. As the rains pour down in Haiti, thousands of quake survivors still don't have tents to stay dry. Why? We'll talk to the Red Cross.

    Why do you guys feel sorry for this dead gang member? Lets focus on our good kids that want to learn and become some thing in life.

    "Gang members should expect to die..."

    So True....
    It's interesting that gangs are so prevalent, w/this outcome.
    Where are their families?

    They might expect to, Dan-California. Maybe even want to. The worst part is, they seem to expect others should die too.

    we must educate pur kids so they can think for themselves.

    Steve Perry has it right; the parents are letting this warped subculture exist.

    Anderson doing his best "can you believe no one will talk " nonsense. The people in the community , including the father< no where to point the finger, but refuse to do so and as a result help preserve this foolishness. the father loses his son and his biggest contribution is to endorse the " street cred rule" don't snitch. no one can help you if you can't help yourself. smarten up people. Good job jackass blame the police. the blame lies completly within the community

    Parents turn a blind eye to what they don't want to see in their children. Either he failed to accept reality or he was so absent from his son's life that he didn't know about his gang affiliation.

    Stop snitchen is wack, grow up.

    Yeah...I do feel sorry for the large city suburbs that deal with real gang violence. I don't think that Cessy should be execited about this report on gangs though. I am only in middle school and have alredy seen too much of gangs...its not somthing to be excited about.

    His parents didn't know that he was gang this time. they are so suffering pain so much.

    "Homicide in Hollenbeck" was one of the best reports Anderson has ever done so I was excited to see that he has returned to this story.

    I hope Anderson had the chance to visit with Father Boyle. I'd like to know how he is doing.

    This is very sad! 🙁
    I can't believe that No one is coming forward!

    Are the Police not supporting those that come forward?

  16. David, Indiana

    Good evening Anderson, Isabel, Emily, Starr, Megan, everyone.

    That young man's father is looking to get the violence to stop. Hopefully someone can come forward and police can apprehend the culprits and get things on a legal track.

    I just can't believe in a country with so much money and technology and power, things like this can happen.

    March 8, 2010 at 10:13 pm |
  18. Vivian - Mtl.

    I think your right–they must have known about his gang affiliation

    @ Anderson & Team 360

    One of the most refreshing things about your show is your committment to your stories. You continue to "follow up" consistently on many of the stories that you do.

    It is admirable, informative and why i watch your program

    If the person was caught on tape, I do not understand how that person was caught!?

    These things also happen in my city. The citizen feels so insecure!

    That kid was a registerd gang member... I dont for his lose.

    @ megan...Yes! Jack was hilarious. I'm still wondering what time his dog, Sammy went to bed. was it when i started my pot of coffee or when i dozed off for 10 mins? ( the oscars gave me a lot of yawn...) LOL

    Be careful in Los Angeles!!!!!!! 🙂 That is so horrible I have seen so bad against gangs....... I hope police looking for him.

    Being a snitch in any type of school is socail suicid, like at my school what is in a middle class no one is willing to do that.

    March 8, 2010 at 10:10 pm |
  26. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    So where are the parents of these gang members?

    March 8, 2010 at 10:10 pm |
  27. Cessy-Chicago

    It'll be hard to find the person responsible for Streve Bueno's death. unfortunately, this is the price one pays when he/she decides to join a gang. Their families are the ones who are suffering after they die. There is no loyalty in gangs...

    Even if they didn't see who did it, they now-word of mouth.

    Snitch? more like Coward!

  31. Cessy-Chicago

    I'm sorry but I find it hard to believe that Steven Bueno's dad had no idea about his gang affiliation.

    This people look like good christian people why are they killing? Or why arnt there family turning them in?

    @ Isabel

    You are so right. Violence in a city affects everyone. In a community that large, people need to rely on each other, Instead, most people turn their eyes away and walk away.

    Maybe that is what the problem is, a city does not know of feel a sense of community.

    March 8, 2010 at 10:07 pm |
  34. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    @ Isabel,
    Yes, That's so horrible to see this crime. they never caught that person. it was caught on the tape......... That is bad gangs on the street.

  35. Sharon Hastings

    Good evening everyone. Hope you had a good weekend. This killing of innocent people in drive bys is so tragic and such a waste. It's all about gangs, drugs, poverty, anger, hopelessness. The culture of it is so entrenched I wouldn't even have the first idea of how to deal with it.

    March 8, 2010 at 10:07 pm |
  36. Kim- Ohio

    How terrible it's a shame that nobody will come forward, but if you are fearful for your life its kind of understandable.

  37. Isabel Siaba


    You write on the blog that the police needs citizens to come forward and report what they've seen and what they've heard.

    I ask you: do the police provide protection for those who cooperate and speak what they know? How does the police protect these witnesses?

    Anderson- what made you do a follow up report on this issue, five years later?

    March 8, 2010 at 10:06 pm |

    Good evening everyone!
    Wow -Anderson is glowing! or maybe that's just my tv. He looks great though.

    It is so absurd the problem of violence in large cities. The population is at the mercy of it!

    Hello everyone,

    here in Germany we have a saying: „Jemand hat Hummeln im Hintern“ (Someone has bumlebees in his butt), describing people who cannot sit still, cannot stay in one place for more that a couple of weeks, people just like Anderson Cooper.
    I look forward to his report from L.A. tonight!

    Interesting to know about the Guangues. This is a common problem in many large cities, in various places around the world.
