Local murder: What is wrong with this picture?

Way too close to where I live, a 15 year-old was murdered, and his 15 year-old companion was shot in the foot. Read this Sacramento Bee article and see if you can find at least three issues that made me shake my head in disgust:
Sacramento County sheriff's detectives have arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy Saturday morning, according to authorities.

Detectives booked Luis Prudente into the Sacramento County Main Jail this morning on suspicion of murder and attempted murder, according to booking records. He also was placed on an immigration-related hold because he is undocumented.

Prudente stands accused in the death of Jesse Dean Jones, who was shot behind Encina High School as he was walking home early Saturday morning with a 15-year-old female friend, said sheriff's Sgt. Tim Curran. A second suspect remains at large, Curran said.

A car pulled up to the pair at the intersection of Wittkop Way and Clinton Road about 2 a.m. Saturday, Curran said. A person got out of the car and fired shots before getting back into the car and fleeing, Curran said.

Jones was shot in the stomach, and his friend in the foot. They were taken to a nearby hospital, where Jones was pronounced dead. The girl was treated and released.

Detectives suspect Prudente pulled the trigger, but they are not clear whether he was driving the car. They are still searching for a second suspect who was in the car with Prudente and who has not been identified, Curran said. However, Curran noted that Prudente is cooperating with authorities.

At this point, detectives suspect the shooting was gang-related and fueled by "rival gang affiliations," Curran said. Prudente previously had been validated by law enforcement as a gang member, the spokesman said.

Prudente is scheduled to be arraigned in court Tuesday, jail booking records show...
OK, here is what I found:
  1. The murder suspect is an "undocumented" immigrant, according to the Bee. As we all know, "undocumented" is the oh-so politically correct way of saying an immigrant is "illegal." He shouldn't even have been here to commit that murder!
  2. But it gets even better: This "undocumented" immigrant has previously been validated as a gang member by Sacramento law enforcement. Hold on a second! If this guy is known by law enforcement enough to be validated, then why the hell wasn't he deported a long time ago for a) being an illegal alien, and b) being an illegal alien gang member? I guess it takes someone losing his life first to finally be able to rid our society of the illegal alien suspect.
  3. Sorry to seemingly blame the victim here, but what the hell were two 15 year-olds doing walking around Encina High School at 2 in the morning? If you swim in a Florida swamp, expect to be eaten by an alligator.
This is not the kind of news I want to be reading about something that, as the crow flies, only happened about 2.5 miles from my house.
