The indictment also says that in November 2012 the gang threatened a rapper, identified only by the initials “R.R.,” with violence unless he paid them for using the gang’s name and symbols.

I would done the same exact thing. The audacity of his step-daughter to disrespect her parents that way and in no way should of he been arrested. To the teen boy who got punched he is lucky he didn’t half way get killed doing something so idiotic.

I guess we’ll live to see a rehashing of the Cuban Missile Crisis in our lifetime. Does anyone notice that once they’ve invoked King and Kennedy’s anniversary all of the events that correlate to that time period are making recurring appearances in this day and age?

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Two Russian strategic bombers landed in Venezuela on Wednesday as part of military maneuvers, President Hugo Chavez said, welcoming the unprecedented deployment at a time of increasing tensions between Moscow and the U.S.
