Resurrected Gang Member Now Officially Dead

AFTER A DOCUMENTED gang member was shot and killed in broad daylight near Perlita and Veselich avenues in Atwater Village, the LA Times reported he had been brought back to life by doctors.

Not so fast, the newspaper's homicide blog now reports:
Steven Scott Farrell, 20, a white man, died from a gunshot wound at County-USC Medical Center at 9:18 p.m. Monday, June 9...

According to Det. Jose Carillo of the LAPD's Northeast Division ... rival gang members chased after Farrell, and when they caught up to his car they began shooting. Carillo said Farrell was struck in the head and crashed into a parked car.
Though the paper didn't specify which gang collected Farrell's dues, one wonders if he would have been part of this morning's Glassell Park bust, had he not already been hit a couple of weeks ago.

I think it's refreshing to hear that gang members are in fact good people. It makes me happy when someone bucks the stereotypes and proves that, even though they may be a 'rascal,' they are not afraid to do good deeds and better themselves and their community. I'm sure the community will suffer unbelievably once the gangs have killed themselves off.

Wonder how many good deeds it takes to make up for murder, drug trafficking, carjacking, home invasion robberies and witness intimidation.

Cara I empahtize with your loss but I wish Steven had found other ways to support his child than turn to gang life and criminal activities. There were/are alternatives. According to the police report he was driving a stolen car while under age drinking when killed, and it just makes you wonder if he had pursued a job or career to support his family would he have even been in that place at that time.

What is important now is for the baby to have some positive role models growing up that reinforce that there are alternatives to the violence of gang life out there. Life does not need to be so brutal and full of hate. I hope you can help with that.
