Have you seen Mary Kay Mallonee's Virginian Pilot article from yesterday, Norfolk gang leader reveals secrets in court about gang life? She calls the testimony at the federal trial in Norfolk "disturbing." I call it scary.
The star prosecution witness, Marlon Reed, -- a stand-up guy... er, no, that's not right... She says he's "one of the most ruthless, self-confessed gang leaders in Norfolk" -- "testified about gang members shooting people in the face, burning people all over their bodies with a clothes iron and jamming screwdrivers into people's arms and legs."
Mr. Reed also testified that "the Bloods are actively recruiting new members right now. Their goal, rule all of Norfolk with fear and an iron fist."
Great. Are we going to have here in Hampton Roads the feel of Sadr City pretty soon?
