We now await reaction from ALL the Vallejo City Councilmembers AND ALL the Supervisor District 1 candidates on this good news for the Country Club Crest, and their expected trek to the Crest neighborhood feigning fidelity and seeking votes and promises of new amenities and businesses for that section of town.

So we can expect to see you walking the crest and promising an economic upturn if they sign the recall petitions? Hmmmmmm?

And what thousands would that be? You barely have a total of 24 so far. I haven't heard a single person other than the misfits on the notice of intent say anything that supports your recall.

Feds bust suspected Ecstasy drug ring centered around Bay Area rap label founded by Mac Dre
http://www.marinij.com/ci_20469324/feds-bust-...

The head of the organization, Michael Lott, 47, of Vallejo, who raps under the name Miami the Most, remains on the lam, along with nine others.

Thizz Entertainment's business model was simple -- sell drugs to finance its record label, said Vallejo police Lt. Ken Weaver.

For many in law enforcement, Thursday's bust marks the end of a dangerous few decades in Vallejo involving the rap label, which started as a street gang committing robberies and selling drugs to finance fledgling rap careers before turning into a nationwide criminal enterprise, authorities said.

"The main players that belong with Thizz Entertainment now have warrants for their arrest for the drug trafficking trade," Weaver said. "The streets of Vallejo will be a little safer this summer because of this."

Romper Room Gang

In the 1980s and 1990s, a group of young men calling themselves Romper Room Gang began knocking off pizza parlors. The gang, which formed in a small Vallejo neighborhood across Highway 37 from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, moved on to hitting banks, slinging dope and committing murder, police and DEA officials said, to raise money to fund "Romper Records."

"It was an explosion of rap music and rock cocaine," Weaver said. "That was a huge deal to us because it was the first time we saw such organization by this culture and it was new to us. We learned from them and they learned from us."

Bust

In July 2008, DEA agents found a confidential informant who led them to Lott. An undercover agent made his first buy of 200 Ecstasy pills from Lott in a Vallejo gas station parking lot.

After numerous undercover drug buys and hours of surveillance and recorded phone calls, the DEA pulled the agent in December 2010. During the year and half that the undercover agent infiltrated the gang, members of Thizz Entertainment and its associates were murdered, according to the DEA.

Gang members began to spread the enterprise to other states, making connections while on tour, Weaver said. Drug shipments were sent from the Vallejo area to Oklahoma City, New York, Atlanta and Milwaukee, the DEA said.

Clean sweep

The story ended Thursday, as agents cascaded into Vallejo and other East Bay cities to serve arrest warrants on 25 Thizz Entertainment associates.

Arrested on suspicion of multiple drug counts in the two federal complaints and in custody were: Norton, Lawrence "Bodine" Nelson, Narco McFarland Sr., Eric "Pay Pay" Robinson, Eileen Knight, Ung Duong, Phat Nguyen, Marcus "Killa" Davis, Michael Smiley, Anthony Young and Anthony Payton.

Charged and not yet in custody were: Lott, Franklin, Thurmon Clifford "Black" Bullock, Latroy Cunningham, Dante Barbarin, Beshiba "Pebbles" Cook, Damian Peterson, Mikel Brown and Andre "Dre from the Bay" Cawthorne.

And people say there isn't anything Satanic about the "moooosic" industry? Wish somebody on the City Council would have the balls to propose a city ordinance banning rap "moooosic" in this town.

Further, these homies don't stay home in their beloved hood. They travel the byways of Vallejo, spreading their "culture" of anger and hate, wanted or not. NOT.

It is sad that these clowns can't come up with anything more enduring than angry tirades against "the man". Pathetic, actually.

If they can't blame anyone for their crappy existence, they might have to admit they are responsible for their own sh*tty lives. Wonder how many of them had multiple children being raised on food stamps and EBT cards, while they
were driving a brand new Audi. I'm guessing that they all did.

I find it interesting that VIB and their ilk aren't spreading the VIB website with the coverage of this bust. They are either scared that covering this will gain them retaliation from those friends with, or part of, the criminal element involved. Or, the fact that MMD's were found to be involved in the illegal activities connected with the bust, thereby blowing the stance that MMD's are wonderful for Vallejo. Could it be that commenting on this successful law enforcement action would mean,*gulp*, having to actually give credit to law enforcement? Oh no, God not that!!!!!! LOL My praise to law enforcement for a job very well done.

VIB - the gang that can't shoot straight. My God, how does a group of people manage to be so wrong, on so many different issues, so often? Their theater is bankrupt, their mayoral candidate barfs on himself and then runs away, they make a bet on drug trafficking and get busted. Unbelievable!

I find it interesting that the uncle of Mac Dre, Foster Hicks, is signing recall petitions. You might want to ask your PD buds (yeah, I know that imaginary) whether old boss Hicks knew this crap was going on while he was a sitting councilman.

I always give props to the PD for there once-every- 10-year big case. They didn't screw it up, but I think that's because they had help.
