Federal investigators continue to crack down on gang violence in Detroit.

One of those gangs has terrorized the Brightmoor neighborhood for years, thanks to a federal indictment Friday they could be off the streets for a very long time.

They rapped about drugs money and murder and turns out their art may have imitated their lives. Now five members of the Young and Scandalous gang also known as YNS are under a federal indictment.

They operated in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood on the city’s west side and are charged with crimes ranging from racketeering, drug dealing and murder.

“About damn time,” said Jonathan Pommerville.

Brightmoor residents like Pommerville say it is long overdue.

“You know some of these charges are about 10 years old and why they haven’t been brought to justice yet is beyond me,” he said.

The feds say members of YNS are responsible for several violent crimes in and around the Brightmoor neighborhood including four homicides.

One of them took place at the Victory Inn on Telegraph Road, another at a gas station on Seven Mile and Shiawassee.

The robbery that Kennedy committed occurred in January 2015 at a gas station in Massachusetts. Kennedy only got away from the robbery with about $190 dollars.

Four teens were found slain and mutilated in a Long Island park on Wednesday, April 12, bringing the Central Islip community to chills, as members of the MS-13 gang believed to be responsible continue to dwell among them.

No arrests have been made, but relatives of each of the victims [16-year-old Justin Llivicura, and 18-year-olds Jorge Tigre, Michael Banegas and Jefferson Villalobos] have told investigators that they’ve experienced intimidation from the notorious group at school, and had neutral associations with MS-13 members to various degrees. A couple of local residents have also allegedly come forward claiming to have been present at the park when machete wielding men emerged from behind trees.

“The gang members came out and told them to kneel down,” an unnamed friend of one of Villalobos’ relatives reportedly told them he witnessed, prior to making a run to escape from the scene. Investigators are looking into the possibility that the victims were among a larger number of teens who were invited to a fake party that was organized in order to pull off an ambush.

Wednesday’s killings come six months after the bodies of two teenage girls [Nisa Mickens, 15 and Kayla Cuevas, 16] were found dismembered in a wooded patch in the nearby Brentwood neighborhood of Long Island. The murders shook the area to the core, as it came months after the skeletal remains of teens Oscar Acosta, 19, Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15, and Jose Pena-Hernandez, 18 were discovered behind an abandoned psychiatric facility. Last month authorities arrested eight members of MS-13 for the Mickens and Cuevas killings.

Sanaa Lathan

Until social media erupted in response to D.C. police’s refusal to look for hundreds of missing Black and Latinx teen girls, no one seemed to be giving the epidemic a second thought. There were no Amber alerts, no press, no citywide manhunts—nothing. They were being branded “runaways” and “critically missing” instead of abducted. Why??? Actress Sanaa Lathan made it crystal clear that there is one definitive reason why: racism.

TMZ caught up with her and asked her what she thought about why there is a lack of urgency to find the girls. “That’s part of our beloved conditioning of our country, unfortunately, with the press. There has been a certain type of race that gets all the attention and now, finally, thank God, because of social media people are, you know, saying we are all American, all races. There’s pain that happens in every community and we, um, have to look out for all of us,” she said.

She is hopeful that some real change is going to happen, but she credits social media for putting the pressure on leadership, the press, and law enforcement. Hashtags like #MissingDCGirls and #FindOurGirls have been instrumental in galvanizing online activism.

If you’re wondering why TMZ would ask Lathan about the tragedy, it is because her latest project centers around police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement. She calls Shots Fired a ’10-part movie’ that was born out of the George Zimmerman trial, the murder of Philando Castile, and countless other Black people whose lives have been cut short at the hands of law enforcement. In it, she plays an investigator who will stop at nothing to get justice.

The devaluation of a Black life has made it easy to not only get away with murdering Black people, it has enabled vultures who exploit missing minority teen girls. According to the Huffington Post, D.C. police also have a sordid history of being involved in sex trafficking. That is yet another reason why some cops aren’t looking for these young people—they already know where they are.

As much as people might want to pretend that racism isn’t alive and well in this country, turning a blind eye won’t solve the problem. There is a much bigger agenda at hand, people. Stay woke.

Article Image: El Chapo's Lawyers Say He Has Worst Jail Conditions In The U.S.

Joaquin Guzman, aka “El Chapo” was previously captured and extradited to the United States for his crimes committed. Now, his lawyers claim he has been suffering in some of the worst conditions in American jail. According to his lawyers, El Chapo cannot buy bottled water, shake hands with any of his lawyers, or see if it is day or not. On top of that, the druglord is religious and cannot get a spanish-speaking priest to meet with him. El Chapo’s lawyers are currently seeking a way to get a more relaxed environment for the druglord.

Many would argue that Guzman is not worthy of conditions other than the one he currently has, as he ran a deadly drug trafficking operation that cost many people their lives. In addition, he escaped from two different prisons in Mexico. In defense papers drawn up by his lawyers, it says that Guzman’s conditions are worst than what a convicted criminal in the “Supermax” prison located in Colorado would receive. Because of that, El Chapo’s attorneys asked a Brooklyn federal judge if Amnesty International could inspect the jail’s conditions to see if they are up-to-date. Guzman’s attorney’s also noted that he works out in his cell by himself, and only was recently allowed to watch DVDs by the prison staff.
