VIDEO: 120 Charged In New York City Gang Takedown

More than a hundred suspects have been charged in the Bronx in what is believed to be the largest gang takedown in New York City history, authorities said Wednesday.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, and other law enforcement officials announced the charges against 120 alleged members and associates of two rival gangs, reports CBS New York.

The early morning raid involved hundreds of law enforcement officers from the NYPD and federal agencies, some using helicopters and armored vehicles to round up the suspects.

Officials said the alleged gangs are the Big Money Bosses, or BMB, and the 2Fly YGz, or 2Fly. Bharara said they "allegedly wreaked havoc on the streets of the Northern Bronx for years by committing countless acts of violence against rival gang members and innocents alike."

"We bring these charges today so that all New Yorkers, including those in or near NYCHA public housing, can live their lives as they deserve: free of drugs, free of guns and free of gang violence," he said.

Good. I just hope that the courts don't let them out of jail along with all these "low risk offenders". NYC is all messed up.

OK then @ 4/29/2016 6:35 AM

They are being brought up on federal charges so our bleeding heart NYC criminal system won't have a chance to mess this up.

Anybody but me notice that the same statement, allegedly from SES, is appearing in everything? SES disclaims it, so maybe P***y is screwing with the board again. Moderator, any way to determine who it is and block his IPS?
