It's ironic how these gangs believe they are so tough when they use 6 men to attack one man. Nothing but a bunch of thugs and cowards. They attack in groups. (cowards) They do drive-by shootings and then speed away. (cowards) Unfortunately these low-life individuals are only the pawns. The major movers are not even in town.
