theories on gun violence in LA from "uprising" boo

Unread post by PS1979 » March 11th, 2005, 5:36 pm

recently read this one book called "uprising" came out a while ago back in 95 if im not mistaken. But in this book many interesting theories are made about the proliferation of Guns in LA, godfather jimel barnes (crips) and general robert lee(bloods) both said in their interviews from that book that they believed for SURE that the US government infiltrated their communities with automatic weapons.
Both stated that in the early 80's Unmarked abandoned blue vans filled to the brim with automatic weapons were left unattended, parked in various locales through East and South central LA, barnes says namely Compton, gardena and inglewood.
Strangely enough just PARKED their, all the contents in the vans left to whom ever wanted what was inside. Jimel barnes even claims that thats how he even got some of his weapons.
Shit is Bizzarre man.
They also have a few other crips in the book talking about how they raided local national guard precincts and cleaned them out for all the weapons they had.

seriously the shit is scary but this happened in Harlem during the 80s. Im going to look up a link for it. the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan talked about this once before, even saying that he has had knowledge of actual government agents joining gangs and supplying them with less than adequate weapons and other military rejects and scraps.... shit is real out there- they helping us kill each other off

there were three vans recorded to have been in NY. One in Brooklyn which local people took into their possession - The Latin Kings in the Bronx said they stumbled across an abandoned van filled with guns. The one thing the government didnt expect was that when they dropeed the van off in Harlem the the muslims would not take the weapons annd use them but display them to the community and call the government out on its crimes. The Police is the enemy...The Government expects nothing of you but to get murdered or spend your life in prison
