Los Angeles Gang Members Send Shout Outs From Syria
A video posted on YouTube has caught the attention of the Los Angeles Police Department. Two alleged L.A. gang members named "Creeper" and "Wino" say they are in "Syria, gangbangin'."
Mike Downing, Deputy Chief for Counterterrorism at the Los Angeles Police Department told ABC news, "We're kind of concerned about their recruitment and whatever other associates they have here... We predicted this would happen -- the [organized crime and terrorism] convergence. What we're worried about is the ones we don't know about here or coming back to the U.S."
These two men can be seen firing their AK-47's as they shout out their fellow gang members back home. The police have identified the tattoos on these two men to be affiliated with gangs such as Surenos-13, a Mexican mafia on "Creeper" and APX3, symbolizing the Westside Armenian Power gang on "Wino". In the video, "Wino" says he was deported from the U.S. several years ago and has child back in Los Angeles.
Some say this video is a fake and could be something Jimmy Kimmel came up with again! If Kimmel could actually get the police department to work with him on this prank, then he really is the king of pranks. I really doubt that would happen but what do you think?
