“A federal grand jury indictment unsealed Tuesday alleges eight members of a northwest Detroit gang terrorized a neighborhood near Seven Mile and Southfield Freeway and were involved in attempted murders, shootings and drug deals and robbed area gas stations,” detroitnews.com reports. “Members of the Band Crew took over parts of northwest Detroit during an alleged four-year reign of terror starting in 2011, robbing stores and homes, shooting rivals and threatening witnesses, according to the 28-page indictment.” TTAG tipster Pascal is not impressed . . .
Riddle me this . . . According to the news story, that gang ruled a large area of MoTown for over four years. What took the feds so long to bring them down?
