GANG COURT is presented as a unique gang information site, to allow visitors the opportunity to view, in factual detail, documents that describe the efforts of law enforcement agencies and prosecutors to put
street gang and prison gangs members behind prison walls.
This page offers a collection of actual court decisions, opinions and news articles, that go into great detail about the arrests and convictions of the gang members and the crimes they committed, to include drug trafficking, murder, assaults, arson and other heinous crimes.
THROUGH THE ACTUAL TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES AND GANG MEMBERS IN THESE COURT DOCUMENTS AND OTHER ACCOUNTS, YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT:
threats made to a police officer
of a circuit court judge
or "reapers" whº enforce the rules of the gang and protect
the territory or "turf."
who were convicted under the RICO statute (Racketeering Influenced
Corruption and Organization Act)
historical data about the formation and operations of the Gangster
and Bloods shoot-outs
chasing kids down alleys, shooting and killing
and other violence committed behind the prison walls
committed because the gang member did not want to be "violated."
(Beaten by other gang members)
violations by convicted felons
dealers who reportedly made $200,000 daily
To assist you in getting to the "good stuff" found in the court decisions, I suggest that you scan down the beginning of each document until you come to the text which frequently has a heading of "background" or "facts of the case."
By reading about these gang cases, it is hoped that it will be a learning experience for all that visit this site.
If you are aware of court decisions, opinions or news articles that you believe would be of interest to others, please forward the link to me by email. I will gladly review each submission and add the more notable ones.
