Wow, you're way out of line bobby joe, not to mention off topic. So sorry to hear about this shooting in our area. We live in a fallen world and sadly it will only get worse.

@bobby joe why would I want to move to Cerritos according to you all the bad people from Artesia, Norwalk, Bellflower and so on go to Cerrtios to rob you....I live in Artesia and my son goes to Cerritos and by the way the API scores are high don't know where you have been. You are just a hater and it sounds like you are just a misrable person. But I have good Karma and you don't....

As a recent WHS alum, I have seen bobby joe's claims to be somewhat true though some claims are too exaggerated. Cerritos has definitely been influenced by troublemakers from the surrounding cities. That's why my family moved to Fullerton after I graduated.

First of all Cerritos residents don't pay higher taxes than Artesia residents. And second, Diamond Bar does have a School/District of Choice lottery system just like ABC Unified.Sounds like bobby joe has a problem with the DISTRICT's system so why be so nasty to a CHS parent who happens to live in Artesia? And "s t f u"....really? Besides bobby joe's comment being way off topic it was just plain IGNORANT. You really need to get your facts straight.

ABC Unified School District includes schools from Cerritos, Artesia, Lakewood, Hawaiian Gardens, etc. so it's ridiculous for you to criticize an Artesia resident the way you did.
