When I had completely read the article ("Latinos Say 6 Youths 'Railroaded,' " March 10) regarding the Latino community outrage over police, prosecution and media portrayals in the Steven Woods murder case being unfair, I too was outraged. I am disgusted that people who commit heinous acts of violence are, through some twisted logic, portrayed as victims. In the Menendez trial, the defense did not deny that Lyle and Erik executed their parents with shotguns, (but) they defend the action by stating that they are victims of parental abuse.

The mother of a San Clemente teen-ager who was speared through the head by youths two years ago warned a state panel exploring juvenile violence Friday that "juveniles are running amok, terrorizing our communities." Kathy Woods, whose son Stephen was killed in the attack, was one of about 60 victims, ex-gang members, law enforcement officers and others who offered their suggestions for changing California's juvenile justice system at a forum sponsored by Assemblyman Mickey Conroy (R-Orange).

Latino leaders charged Wednesday that unfair news coverage in the spearing death of a San Clemente teen-ager has heightened racial tensions and caused six Latinos to be "railroaded" by police and prosecutors. Amin David, chairman of Los Amigos of Orange County, said his organization "detests the implications by the media, some in law enforcement and hostile members of the public that, because of what they wear or how they speak or their skin color, six young Latinos are guilty of the death."

The prosecutor in the slaying of a San Clemente teen-ager will make the unusual request Monday of seeking not one but two dual-jury murder trials, a procedure that gained recent attention in the Los Angeles trials of Erik and Lyle Menendez. Under the complicated scenario--played out only a handful of times before in Orange County--two separate juries consider the fate of different defendants in the same trial. Deputy Dist. Atty.

Oh, no. Doug Rader is named manager of the Angels? I've lived through this once already, as a Texas Rangers fan during the first Doug Rader era, and believe me, losing was the least of it. The guy is a bully and a bad manager. Toronto's Tom Henke and Oakland's Dave Stewart have gone on record about how Rader stunted their careers at Texas. Gene Autry and Mike Port picked him for his "experience?" What a joke. I would ask that the stories on his "eccentricity" and his fondness for Hemingway are kept to a minimum.

The family of Steven Woods, killed by gang members in a 1993 attack at Calafia Beach County Park when a paint-roller rod pierced his head, are organizing a ski- and board-a-thon Saturday at Mammoth Mountain to honor the teenager. His sister Shellie Woods, 29, has organized the event every year since her brother's death to raise money for survivors of crimes. Steven, 17 at the time he died, was a skier and snowboarder. About 100 people took part in last year's event.

Kathy Woods, mother of the 17-year-old San Clemente youth slain in a confrontation last year, Saturday endorsed Proposition 187, the controversial initiative that would deny social services, education and all but emergency health care to illegal immigrants. "If our borders were controlled, probably my son would be alive today," said Woods, a legal immigrant from England who cannot vote in Tuesday's election.
