What began as a community fight over the future of the Compton Police Department has grown into a conflict between church and state in the ethnically shifting city. The feud has pitted Mayor Omar Bradley, who is African American, against a local Roman Catholic priest who is white and leads two largely Latino parishes. And it increasingly involves an effort by Latinos, who now make up about 70% of Compton's population, to gain political clout in a city governed by an all-black council.

"INS Agents Arrest 200 in Orange County Raids" (Sept. 19) reported the raid and arrest of 200 (alleged) undocumented persons in Orange the previous day. INS officers disguised themselves as exterminators to rid the neighborhood of infectious pests. If we are compliant with this process, then not only has human life been violated, but likewise, been relegated to the status of cockroaches--an undesirable, contaminated insect. Our national and provincial narcissism conveniently blinds us to recognizing real people with feelings and thoughts and dreams and fears.

We would like to commend you for Greg Hernandez's reporting and Mark Boster's photography in the story "Building Bridges--and Trust," (Feb. 22). These men brought sensitivity and hope to their reporting of our neighborhood reality and a genuine concern for our "at-risk" youth. We appreciate The Times' concern in imagining creative approaches to empower people in violent situations to realize their capacity for goodness. There are possibilities for change when young people can envision alternatives for their lives.

About 200 Compton residents, angry about a proposal to disband the city's Police Department and turn law enforcement over to the county Sheriff's Department, marched through town Tuesday night to demand a citywide vote on the issue in November. "Let the people decide," said protest organizer Lorraine Cervantes, an ardent critic of the council's decision last month to pursue a contract with the sheriff. The proposed contract is under study for a possible City Council vote this summer.

Six hundred people staged a March for Peace through the streets of Compton on Friday, pausing to re-create scenes from Christ's Passion at locations where children and teenagers have been killed since the beginning of the year. A performer dressed as Jesus fell at Acacia Avenue and Elm Street, as Christ first fell at the third station of the cross on Jerusalem's Via Dolorosa. The performer fell again two blocks later.

The mother of a 2-year-old boy who was killed last week in a drive-by shooting said at a church meeting Tuesday night that she is "heartbroken" but has prayed for the killer of her son. "I have no desire to hate you or condemn you," said Eva Martinez. "But I'm trying to understand this act." Martinez and her husband, Alfonso, buried their son, Esteban Zavala Martinez, Tuesday morning. The boy was shot in the head while he was being carried in his father's arms on Thursday.

On Good Friday, teenagers from two Compton Catholic churches took their message to the streets, where many had lost family and friends to drugs, gangs and shootings. In a procession that stretched over 12 blocks, the teenage actors depicted the last hours in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Their play was a story of death and redemption -- both often found in this neighborhood.
