Skip to comments.Central Washington town besieged by gang violence
Posted on 06/02/2010 7:13:17 AM PDT by epithermal
Royal City, a town with a population less than 2,000, has had its sixth drive-by shooting this year. A 10-year-old boy sleeping in his bed is the latest victim.
Royal City Police Chief Darin Smith says there have been six drive by shootings within city limits this year, thats as many as all of last year. Chief Smith says the shootings are getting more blatant and are happening in the middle of the day.

Just joining the gangs Americans won’t join.
2% of Washington’s population, 40% of their crimes, IIRC.
And the liberals coddle these vermin despite having their wives and neighbors and friends raped and murdered.
I had no idea the Amish lived that far west.
Our family was driving through Iowa when we had an accident that required a tow truck to haul our van and travel trailer off the highway. While talking to the tow truck driver back at his place of business, he mentioned the fact that living out in the middle of nowhere is not what it used to be. He said, “We have a lot more crime than we used to.” I asked why that was and he told me that the government has set up programs where they move poor people out to small towns, “and they bring all their crime with them,”
Isn’t Seattle a sactuary city? (I noticed that there was no description of the gangs, so I am assuming the obvious)
Seven paragraphs, and the author could not find the space to mention one name, give one personal detail, or even name the gangs involved.
Is it the Elks going up against the Future Farmers of America again?
And don’t even get me started about the F’in Rotary Club...
Well, there you have it. Maybe he should have stopped the first gang.
"...Chief Smith says it used to be a one-gang town.
Several years ago, another gang moved in and thats when the violence escalated.
He says he does not know what the gangs are fighting over, but they are getting more violent..."
What is so bad about crushing a single gang of illegal Mexicans before more move into the area and more gangs form?
Are we to believe when it was a one-gang town these illegals were peaceful, helpful, and altruistic to others?
The Police in the Northwest have there hands full. I live in a mostly white area of King County - yet see tags from Hispanic gangs everywhere, Playboy Surenos being the most common
HISPANIC GANGS of Washington as listed at the NW Gangs website. Counties of King, Pierce, Yakima and Spokane being the worse

Rural Iowa is overrun with illegals also. The locals think it is grand because they bring with them more state money for the schools, welfare checks, food stamps etc. They have destroyed the wag structure for locals working in light manufacturing, meat packing and ag. The kosher plant was just one example but there are lots of others.
You beat me to it!!
Who the hell would want to get a “Wicked Bunnies” gang tat??
If some one drove by my house and shot at it, I could get off at least a round or two before they drove out of sight. I think I would start my car and drive down the road to see what I could see. Particularly in a small town. Maybe it is just me. I think I would have a chat with the local police chief and county sheriff also.
Democrats don’t like the smaller cities. Because of the large disparity in the population, they can ignore the rest of the state and just watch the towns in the country side burn.
Gangs outnumber cops in Royal City
“there are 50 known gang members and only three police officers in Royal City.”
Time to form a posse - any volunteers?
That was one of Clinton’s programs.
We had the same problem in NE Illinois.
And dont even get me started about the Fin Rotary Club..."
Gang problem solved. Sorry, lefties: 'cruel and unusual punishment' refers only to human beings. Rabid animals like gang members need to be treated as such.
In no way do I want to minimize the trauma of this boy getting hit in the head by a bullet but here is my 2 cents worth....
Perhaps the good folks of Royal City will demand that their cops start cleaning up their crime problem instead of trying so hard to be the biggest speed trap in the state. In the interest of disclosure, yes, I did get caught going past Royal City on the way to Pullman. Royal City isn’t even on the main road and they still drop the speed limit from 65 to 60 and nail anyone going over 60 even though it is a wide open “country” road. I found out later it is a HUGE speed trap.
Like I said, perhaps the good folks of Royal City will demand their police resources are spent catching the real bad guys and not folks like me doing 61 in a 60.....Sheesh, I feel better now!!!
It’s got nothing to do with Seattle—it is 150 miles east.
They should round up all the gang members, castrate them, remove their tats and let them stink in jail for about 25 years.
>>I asked why that was and he told me that the government has set up programs where they move poor people out to small towns, and they bring all their crime with them,<<
I refuse to lump poor people into that category.
The people who moved here from Chicago were too lazy to get jobs, and in too much of a hurry for their free housing (Apparently, there’s a wait-list in Chicago, but here in Iowa, no such wait). Iowa even ADVERTISED in Chicago.
The welfare queens come, bringing their troubled offspring, and even more troublesome gangsta boyfriends.
The latest outrage? $1 bus rides from Chicago to Iowa City.
Really, who’s going to take advantage of that particular program? Hint: Not city-folk interested in farming!
Whenever I see a report like this I go into “My Locale” and check what local FR’s in that state are posting...And this isn’t even on their radar ...Much of the comments are about environmental concerns which is OK
Why is this town having such a problem ? Most FR’s I inculded, suspect it has something to do with illegals but without local reports all that remains are suspicions.
Actually if this is being caused by bands of “La Raza” invaders who have been taught since childhood that they are in a part of old Mexico therefore local laws don’t apply to them .I submit that attitude contributes greatly to the “illegal problema.”
How far away are we from those invaders turn from wishing to turn those areas over into a new Mexican state to begin actually doing so.
150 miles isn’t that far when you consider that illegals would have had to travel 2,300 miles just to get to Seattle. I’m not saying it’s definately illegals but I think it is a possibility.( I do know that if they were white, it would have appeared prominently in the story)
No illegals there back then, though.
Shootings involving Hispanics are a regular event in eastern and central Washington, and the immigration status of both victims and perpetrators are just as regularly not revealed. Given the activist approach of the MSM, even now the local media, it’s safe to assume they’re all or nearly all illegals. The local press has gotten so bad, sometimes the ethnicity of armed and dangerous criminals who are wanted is withhheld. From the media, we learn nothing and must question everything.
This is sad! The governor should be put in jail!
It's an hour or so away, over the mountains. Looked it up on a map because I had never heard of it. Small place.
Say WA? Evergreen State ping

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this ping list.
Ping sionnsar if you see a Washington state related thread.
“Royal City, a town with a population less than 2,000, has had its sixth drive-by shooting this year. A 10-year-old boy sleeping in his bed is the latest victim.”
Damned Amish anyways!
Royal City, meet Skidmore, MO.
Midway between Seattle and Spokane. Just a gangbanger rest stop.
Feed them for the next 25 years? Oh no.
I guess it was ok to have one gang but the second one moving in is just over the top.
Good point. Fry ‘em instead.
