Lorenzo "L.B." Benton from Compton Piru

Unread post by alexalonso » December 29th, 2009, 4:08 pm

Back in 1976 Salty from Grandee Crips was killed in an ambush by several Pirus, but it was Lorenzo Benton who was convicted of the murder. He was a Piru member that was affiliated with Puddin, Tam, Bartender and other early Piru members. He was sentenced to Life with parole and is scheduled for parole early next year. He has been in prison for 33 years and was sent there when he was either 21 or 22. He was born in 1955 so he will be turning 55 next year.

Grew up in the Grandee's with all of the OG's... That's my family! Still and will always be Grandee - they call it Nutty Bloc now but, like I said, it's Grandee for life.

That was the Double OOG generation. Salty was like 19 and LB was more like 20 at the time of this incident.

Lorenzo Benton is still locked up. He was arrested in 1976, and sent to the pen on July 22, 1977. He is currently 57 years old and is in Pelican Bay prison right now.

He has been locked up for 36 years but does have parole but the board can deny him everytime if they want. Usually if you have major disciplinary issues in the pen, you will not get parole, but I have no idea of what he has been doing in prison. But at his age, I doubt he is doing much now.

He is also in the SHU and was part of the hunger strike that was going on in 2011 and 2012.

Posters of a few of the men who live in the tiny SHU cells at Pelican Bay that this mock cell is modeled after are displayed for the play-goers attending the Mime Troupe’s performance in Oakland’s Mosswood Park on July 21. Dolores Canales and 16 other members of California Families to Abolish Solitary Confinement drove up from LA for the event, bringing the posters, to support Bay Area volunteers with the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity coalition and Occupy 4 Prisoners who built and have been displaying the mock cell. Shown on the posters are, from left, Lorenzo Benton, Todd Ashker, Danny Troxell, Gabriel Huerta and J. Heshima Denham, who’s housed in the Corcoran SHU. Above, on an orange background, is a photo of Sitawa Jamaa (Ron Dewberry). The efforts of activists around the state to enlighten the public about the torture of solitary confinement were spurred and inspired by last year’s hunger strikes. – Photo: Dolores Canales

By then all or most of the OG's were gone, dead or in lock up, what was left were the youngsters and they were Nutty. Direct lineage to the Grandees.

You can't be the same man, it's almost impossible to be the same (from 16 to 50 years old)

If you are in Los Angeles, you should come to the California Cease Fire weekly meetings. You will see OGs that have changed. Its quite common now.
