Yeah really! Since the drug called alcohol is legal and kills people everyday, I think the war is not lost, but only contolled. Why is alcohol legal?

Wasn't one of the car-jackers in the Newsome/Christian murder a member of that particular organization ? Guess with nothing to do and all day to do it he snitched. That's a double victory ! Hard drugs off the streets and now maybe one of the "ganstas" will kill the car-jackers for snitching. Good news IMO.
Yep...Lemaricus Davidson was a member of the BGD. Prison records show he was a very active member while in a West TN prison. Not something you just walk away from on the outside!

Gee - I noticed that several implicated here were illegal hispanics. Just more illegals doing those jobs that Americans won't do. Just wait til the MS-13 gang gets a better foothold in Oak Ridge and watch the body count from the gang wars! The Black Gangster Disciples are well known and have been busted before. All of the black gangs around here have been infiltrated with informants which is why they keep getting busted regularly!

You might want to check with our recently ousted county commissioner who was also heavily involved in drug trafficking.
What's MS13? I'm unfamiliar. And which county commissioner? I must've missed that one!

MS13 is a criminal hispanic gang primarily in California and Texas but branching out all over, wherever hispanic youths migrate. We have some in East Tennessee. Originally formed by Central American refugees. The older members are heavily tatooed but the younger ones in the US learned that made them targets. They make their money through drug smuggling, people smuggling, gang assasinations, and mafia like control on uneducated illegal alien hispanic communities.

Former Knox County Commissioner Josh Jordan took his momma's vacated seat for a short time. He has a very checkered legal history. Several drug related incidents that seemed to just "go away" while his mother was still an active commissioner. I don't know of a positive link between him and any gang, but I wouldn't be shocked if it were true.

I was thinking they meant Jordan, but wasn't sure. Lambert seems a little squirrely too!

Just what we need...some MORE illegal aliens, and all of them packing. Ever scroll thru MSNBC under the crime & punishment section and read the last names in all the stories??

I say that they need to get rid of all the kcdc areas, and community assistance programs!! They are giving tenn care to these douchbags and they sell their hydros from the surgery they have after being shot by fellow gang memembers, to make money! And living in cheap housing so they can spend more $$ on dope and their " Pimped" out cars. Moncier prob. deals with having a handicapped son and a wife who committed suicide by BUYING their drugs and pleading the guys down to misdaminer charges!!!

Just google MS-13 and you find anything you want. Diane Jordan's son who was appointed commissioner in the fiasco was convicted of drug dealing and may have been involved in other activities.

They got these people because they are the "big dogs". What about all the other dealers on every street corner in East Knoxville, in every project? I have seen the police jump out in Walter P. Taylor homes, walking around laughing. And the dealers stand right in front of them laughing back? As soon as the police leave it is back to business as usual. Is the plan to bust the major suppliers because that is how the petty dealers get their drugs? I've seen this before and guess what they do? They go to Chatt, Nashville, Memphis, Atlanta and buy it and bring it right back. While the junkies walk around looking for someone to rob. Is this a never ending cycle?
it's the fault of the people that run the projects,they can't see the projects from their ivory towers,nor do they care.if you have no resident's,no federal dollars!they don't want to get rid of the problem,they like to get grant money to try and fix the problem,but if the problems go away,so does the grant money,so there is so much wasted money and effort on drug programs and useless crap like that.so, they get more money next time to try something else,like job training,it's a never ending cycle.did i mention the admin. fees involved that goes to the top exec's?your tax dollars at work

Bruce Poston is the number 1 go to guy for drug cases. He loves drug money and he even has an office set up to take payments anytime of the day and he knows what these guys do and still gets them off.

I used to work in the Knox County Jail downtown several years ago with the maximum security inmates. They say the gang was dismantled. How is that? You take them off the street as an organized black gang to keep them from illeagle activities, then you form them back together in an organized facility where they can run their operations inside a cell. YOU DID NOT DISMANTLE THEM! They are thugs and they WILL find means to still operate. I have seen it too often, however it still looks good in the paper!
Whatever looks good ON paper as well. The police and FEDS sit on these cases until they deem necessary to bust them so their "numbers" look good for the year. In NY, the police said they are cutting overtime because the crime rate is going down and they would have to compete with next year's numbers. WHAT??!!???

So his wife killed herself? Everyone knows he's been a closet homo for years. She must have found out.

Hey, Awe...speaking of attorney's, did you see who's taking over Eric Boyd's case? Phil Lamonico. I used to work for him years ago, but I got tired of sharing the office bathroom with all the drug dealers and getting hit on by all the thugs. He's sunk for sure now.
