Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said the alleged “900 Gang” members, some of whom were just 16-years-old, were believed to have played a part in two murders and 10 non-fatal shootings over the last two years.

Police said the wounded woman and a 16-year-old boy were both struck when a gun the teen was carrying at the burial “experienced an accidental discharge” and struck both of them, WOFL-TV reported...

    Anti-violence and anti-police, but manages to hang with an armed asshole who shot him in the absence of police. How very droll. We used to tell stories like this on occasion about gangbangers firing blindly over their shoulders as they ran away to disbelieving family members who couldn't understand how so many shots were fired without hits and then a few innocents managed to catch bullets. This is exactly how and why.

    Criminal gangs have swept through so much of the educational system in England that staff at one-third of the country’s secondary schools believe gangs have groomed pupils, a report has found. A poll of teachers at almost 1,300 English schools found that drug dealers and other criminal gangs are controlling pupils as young as eight, with the rot spreading throughout the country and not just limited to urban areas. According to an analysis conducted by The Times - which covered schools with approximately 500,000 pupils - over 60 per cent of secondary schools have been forced to search pupils with...

    Washington (AFP) -- A five-month old baby boy struck in the head by a bullet in a drive-by shooting in Chicago Thursday became the youngest victim yet of gun violence battering US cities already hobbled by the coronavirus pandemic. Shootings have become breathtakingly normal this summer across the United States. Hundreds have been killed including dozens of children, and thousands wounded. The shootings have been stoked by the social and economic hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic, pullbacks by police under attack for abuse of African Americans, the hot summer's pull on people to the streets, and by social media-fuelled gang...
