  1. A member of a Bloods gang sub-group

    That gang has got to be more than a decade old; I remember when they bludgeoned a girl to death in the woods in Suitland when my daughter was attending Suitland High School & their members attended there. I thought the county was trying to break them up. Well, this story is about an incident 3 yrs. ago. You think the gang has dispersed? Hmm, apparently the connection between gangs is very loose. Here's an interesting site: http://www.knowgangs.com/gang_resources/profiles/bloods/

    Unfortunately, that looks like it's encouraging gang activity. We need more constructive activities for our youth with good leaders.

    BTW, did I tell you that I added your blog to the new Prince George's feed?: http://www.pgcares.com/blog-news.html
