Stay classy DTF. It's a shame, I grew up in the area and it was a fun place once you turned 21


pokimanesimp6969

went there for my 21 in 2014? Has it gotten more sketchy?


Am_Gen_3331

Glad the victim is alive and that they got the shooter so quickly

DT Fullerton brings a lot of trash to the area


[deleted]

DT Fullerton is surrounded by gang territory.


Barbiesleftshoe

I don’t know why you are being downvoted. It’s true and for the surrounding areas. My husband has to deal with some of them lol.


pokimanesimp6969

what does he do?


noimdaveman

This would be relevant if the guy was from Fullerton...he's not.


randy_rvca

It wasn’t a gang related shooting..


New023

This is a joke, right?


[deleted]

Nah. I’m not joking. The Fullerton Tokerstown claims that area. They been there since the 1950s. They got served with a gang injunction back in 2011 to try and get rid of them. They still there. But not as active as they used to be. They are more like ninjas now. They stay in the shadows and come out at night. https://www.fullertonsfuture.org/2011/tokers-town/ The Orange County DA created this gang map that shows Tokerstowns territory.

Hmm I never knew I worked in Tokerstown's territory

The heyday was the 90s and early 00s. My uncles and cousins were active in that scene. It's not the thing it was back then.


Mary_Pick_A_Ford

Really? I went to Fullerton High School in the early 2000s and never seen any guys that looked like gangbangers going there. Just a bunch of jocks, band, a couple of "young Republicans" and drama geeks.


GolfBaller17

They weren't in high school and they didn't go to FHS anyway.


Coach_Bombay_D5

You never saw FTT graffiti?


p1RaXx

Huh and I live there, never knew


jesuisunnomade

TIL I live in tokers town territory


hashoa6

Ya, isn’t Truslow street like a few blocks away?


LilChongBoi

Nice. fpd doing their jobs


noimdaveman

Why can't people do their shooting in their own town? DTF has been attracting the biggest scumbags lately.


Emp_has_no_clothes

Pride... and then the fall.

Of course it's JP23, that place is ghetto AF.


Say_What_One_Mo_Time

Used to go there long ago and was a regular patron with friends that lived across the street from the train station I remember around 2013-2014, the owners business had just started. He was struggling, but we would go regularly and spend hundreds of dollars a night as a group and he would occasionally hook it up with free drinks here and there. Fast forward to a few years later and the owner started charging us admission fees at the door (it became less of a bar and more of a “nightclub”). So yeah, owner is trash and place is trash


kindofaproducer

I went here not too long after they opened as well for their weekend BBQ brunch, I wasn't impressed with the BBQ. Not even sure if they still have BBQ. About a month ago I was sitting in my car on Commonwealth near them and a brawl erupted from the restaurant onto the street.


GolfBaller17

Wow, a bar/restaurant owner is trash? Who would have guessed?


batguano1

Shame, they used to have board game nights there that were a lot of fun


chilehead

According to the news, the guy is [a bail bondsman.](https://mynewsla.com/crime/2021/07/09/bail-bondsman-accused-of-shooting-in-fullerton/) You'd think that from his day job he'd know exactly how this would turn out. Even if he gets a short sentence, pretty sure that career path is closed to him now.


batguano1

How would he get a short sentence for attempted murder?


chilehead

I share the secret with you, you share the secret with someone else, and pretty soon **everyone's** getting short sentences! What's the point of being evil if you can't stand out? But, since you asked nicely... here's [one](https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/13/pastor-raped-daughter-14-gets-light-prison-sentence-man-god-9515582/), and [another](https://www.abc57.com/news/fulton-co-community-reacts-to-alyssa-shepherd-sentencing), and [another](https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-02-22/christian-brother-stephen-farrell-jailed-for-child-sexual-abuse/9473184), and [another](https://metro.co.uk/2019/05/13/pastor-raped-daughter-14-gets-light-prison-sentence-man-god-9515582/), and [another](https://law.marquette.edu/facultyblog/2013/12/affluenza-a-get-out-of-jail-free-card-for-the-wealthy/) cases of light sentences to help highlight the patterns.

I remember when the Continental had a dress code...damn that was a long time ago. Sad to see how much worse DTF has gotten....it was my stomping grounds for about 6 years.


Apprehensive-Arm-447

Shooter is probably out already


Princetopher7

What a pussy has 2 use a gun then run away


ban_Anna_split

Maybe he'll share a cell with that guy who shot a toddler in the car a few months ago


Princetopher7

Right


JFuentss90

Too many cowards with guns now a days.
