I know both these guys. I had no idea, but I never felt threatened by either of them. We looked each other in the eye, and treated each other with the respect men owe each other, and never had a problem. I am not justifying their actions, but you all need to understand that these are human beings, with laughter and love in their hearts. For all practical purposes, their lives are over now.
Their motivations, I do understand. All this started with one murder decades ago, that began this endless series of back and forth retaliation killings. The gangs are going to have to call a truce, before this will end.
Senseless deaths, vice lords verses gangster desciples.

Shut up. No one cares about gangs. This was about money and drugs. Nothing more. The two men that have been charged are not even from TN.
