Okay, why aren't there surveillance cameras at Ortega Park--it's one of the sketchiest places in town.

How enlightened of you. Stand up straight, your knuckles are dragging.

Should parents have to pat their boys down before they send them off to school every morning? Shooting involving young juveniles is another post today. JUNIOR high? 11 to 13 year-olds? Crazy.

420722 - how is that "wrong?" You said girls get in fights too, and a majority of stabbings, etc is done by boys. I just said not ALL fights are by boys. Nice try though.

Wrong. Girls get in fights but the majority of stabbings and shooting is being done by the boys. Instead of getting mad at the truth, let’s find out why.

LUVADUCK - show us the stats. And so what? Again, it's not all males committing violent gang crimes. Check those stats again......

@LUVADUCK- your post is flawed. The term "parents" is a very loose term when they (more likely than not, "Mom") knows her "child" has embraced the gangsta lifestyle over the years and has now become a thug, soon to be known as "prisoner # 00011000".

Not saying "boys" or "men" or "males" exclusively but look at the stats.

LUVADUCK - it's not just the "boys" who are involved in gang fights. Plenty of articles here about female juvenile fights.

I hate to say it but there is likely only one type of high school kid that carries a knife so this is likely gang related.

No but they are typically the only ones that will stab someone not in self defense. Sounds like the story progressed to something much darker and the story has shifted.

@Sac- that's all i know. Two men approached the group of boys playing basketball and attacked them. Men haven't been caught. No updates, other than he lived. Yes adults from what i know. Really sad and quite pathetic to attack kids playing basketball at a park.

@589, my information came from a close family member of one of the youths that was attacked.

@Martyn and Pebble- nope and nope. My coworkers brother was playing basketball with some friends. A lady came out and yelled at them for making noise. They said they were just playing basketball at the park. The lady took off, and came back with two adult males. One with a hammer, the other with a knife. The guy with the hammer struck a kid on the head and knocked him out and hit the other kid in the chest several times. Another youth was stabbed by the other man. So as you see, you arm chair Police detectives really don't know what you are saying. Get the facts before you post. Thanks

PEBBLEHILL - I went to SBHS 25 years ago and there were plenty of non-gangsters that carried knives. Some did it for "protection," some did it to be "cool." Gangsters aren't the sole knife carriers in school.

Just got the following text: "[SBUSD] SBPD is investigating an altercation between local youth that took place today at Ortega Park. Two students, both from SB High, suffered serious injuries. We are working with local law enforcement as they continue to investigate. Frann Wageneck SBUSD Asst. Superintendent of Student Services" ------------ Hope these kids recover and get their lives together.

Thanks. It will be interesting to read of the reaction/response of the new District representative. Interestingly, the city's Neighborhood Advisory Council was meeting this evening at 6 PM; perhaps youth violence and Ortega Park was on the agenda?
