Lorain Police Department – Arrest the uncivilized destroyers of society
Yesterday a news conference was held – the headlines read:
Lorain police sweep 13 violent gang members off streets – suspects tied to nine murders over four years
The men were arrested in the areas of Long Avenue, West 17th Street and North Central by the Lorain Police Department with the help of the U.S. Marshals, the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force, and Lorain County deputies, Carpentiere said. Officers served secret indictments to the defendants yesterday.
The defendants have been convicted of violent crimes and the majority are out on bond. Most made their money through the sale of drugs, police said.
16 arrested in Lorain gang sweep
Officers in the Criminal Investigations Division, Community Impact Unit and Patrol Division used computer analysis to identify the participants of the city’s most violent crimes during the seven-month investigation. Police said most gang activity occurred on the west side of Long Avenue.
A review of the data showed that MOB had a major role in violent crime in the city, said Police Chief Cel Rivera.
The suspects, all Lorain residents, were being held Lorain County Jail late Friday. They will be arraigned next week in Lorain County Common Pleas Court
It is a start – the most influential members of the “gang” have been arrested but according to the Lorain Police Dept there are “hundreds of members”
Carpentiere said the investigation is a continuation of gang arrests the police made in 2010 of several violent individuals who were involved in M.O.B. and a south side gang. M.O.B. has hundreds of members in Lorain and the arrests focused on the leaders, according to police.
Those who have had the unfortunate experience of getting stuck in muck and mire know that as you manage to pull your foot out the impression in the mud last but for a moment , quickly the muck fills back in the indentation and it is as before the trap set for the next unsuspecting travelers who walk that way.
I am sure the police officers are under no illusion that those that slither in the muck and mire of the criminal element will soon “fill in” .
How frustrating for the police department everywhere that due to “unlimited funds” from drugs and fear these purveyors of murder and fear on our streets, can set their bond and be back out to continue the destruction of our quality of life.
I wonder who owns the homes where such scum lay their heads– because when someone rents to these cretins they are part of the problem – criminal background check, references I wonder how those ” landlord checks” turned out…. you think any were ever done. Perhaps the landlords were just pleased to be able to prostitute Lorain again – to get a return on their investment in such a bad area….. If I get a chance I will try to see if I can get the “alleged” gang bangers, murderers, drug dealers
Five fatal overdoses in 10 days have authorities worried about a batch of highly potent or poorly cut heroin.
“We want to nip this in the bud to stop people from dying,” Dr. Stephen Evans, Lorain County coroner, said Friday. “It’s either purer than normal or it’s cut with something more toxic.”
kidnappers, home invasion specialists “addresses in Lorain, then do a “property owner check” – see what that turns up. In the meantime check out the photos in the Morning Journal article linked above:
Are these YOUR tenants, recognize them from their monthly rent check- or did they pay in cash- because I am not sure they would bank their income…… Every rat needs a hole to crawl into – are you making money from this filth ? Are you responsible for the misery of murder, and drugs that cause this community to spiral downward?
We will see – I could be wrong maybe their address will be owner occupied?
our sincere thank you to the Lorain Police Dept. . I am sure today’s arrests will send a message to the thugs /drug dealers/ criminals and those that believe they can inflict their diseased lifestyle on our city that this is not acceptable to those who “serve and protect” her citizens. We know your task is dangerous and sometimes thankless but we who benefit from your diligence can rest a little easier tonight-
