You can almost hear the Law and Order clang when reading the FBI report on their take-down of a white prison gang no one has heard of outside of Georgia:
SAVANNAH, GA: More than 40 associates of the notorious Ghost Face Gangsters criminal street gang have been indicted on federal charges related to drug trafficking and firearms possession throughout eastern Georgia and beyond.
A 93-page, 83-count federal grand jury indictment unsealed Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court in Savannah lists the charges against 43 men and women for a multitude of offenses involving trafficking methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin, announced Bobby L. Christine, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia. Federal, state and local agencies cooperated in the investigation dubbed Operation Vanilla Gorilla.
The indictment alleges that the narcotics-trafficking conspiracy began as early as 2015 and continued until the present, operating in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, Emmanuel, Evans, and Tattnall Counties, in the Southern District of Georgia, and elsewhere. Members of the conspiracy associated with the Ghost Face Gangsters, a violent, white supremacist street gang operated largely from inside prisons, and with other criminal street gangs to aid in the distribution of controlled substances, for protection, and to promote a climate of fear.
Operation Vanilla Gorilla represents one of the largest takedowns of Ghost Face Gangsters associates to date, and follows the March 2018 arrests of 23 gang members in the Northern District of Georgia on federal charges, and multiple arrests in October 2018 on state charges in Spalding County, Ga.
Charges against the defendants in Operation Vanilla Gorilla include:
- 25 counts alleging the possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute;
- 18 counts alleging the unlawful distribution of controlled substances;
- 25 counts alleging prohibited persons (drug users and/or felons) in possession of firearms and/or ammunition;
- One count alleging the unlawful possession of a prohibited weapon – a sawed-off rifle;
- One count alleging the possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number;
- 10 counts alleging the possession of controlled substances, including methamphetamine, heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana, and prescription pills; and,
- 2 counts alleging the possession of counterfeit currency.
This sounds like a slow weekend for Detroit’s last remaining honest cops.
But these are “white supremacists” so…
Not that there’s anything wrong with arresting drug dealers.
Jeff Sessions re-focused the Justice Department on traditional law and order and announced indictments against California’s Mexican Mafia last May, and went after MS-13 in June.
I suspect and fear we’ll miss that man.
