    The police needs to dismantle these darn gangs and cut the foolishness about internal feud… So if there was no internal issues going on, are we saying its OK for the gangs to exist? Dismantle similarly to the Nugence gang as i am sure we will NOT be surprised to hear how many police are involved this gang as well….
