WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Wilmington Police have confirmed Taaron Jones, who was stabbed to death outside the Rhino Club Sunday night, was a confirmed member “Double I” (ii) street gang.

Police say he held the rank of 5-star General and at the time of his death was the highest ranking member in Wilmington.

Police also say the walls inside the Rhino Club are painted in red and black, the primary colors of the “Double I” gang.

An investigator reports as well that employees at the Rhino Club use an electronic device similar to a cattle prod to attempt to gain control of patrons who are disruptive or fighting.

First and foremost my condolences and prayers go out to this young mans family and friends. People never realize what it is like to experience the lost of a loved one until it really happens to them. The media has taken this story and ran wild with it. Just remember that everybody is somebody’s child. No one would want their loved one remembered by the bad that they did in life. Everyone with negative comments and the media fail to realize even though he wasn’t the “best” he is and was a child of God. People are so ready to judge someone on all the wrong that they encountered in life but before anyone can do that we must first take a look in the mirror and realize that everyone has a past. He may have been in a gang but no one but him knows if he was getting on the right track. The incident that occurred was senseless and could have been prevented. So now instead of the family and friends dwelling on what the media is projecting about him, just thank God for the time that he allowed Mr. Jones to dwell on this earth. And the reason why WECT isn’t dwelling on this is because they have respect for people.

I happen to know that some very nice and smart people have been sucked into gangs. The devil is the master deciever and anyone can be suckered in by his lies. Take Eve for example, she disobeyed God, by believing the lie of the devil. We are all defensely, when it comes to satan and only God can delivery us. Have you forgotten this?

What does that have to do with anything?

Guest228: I read my Bible daily, thank you very much, and have been for more than 40 years. Furthermore, I’m not judging anyone, but if I did it would be “by the content of their character,” as one of my heroes told us to do. I give thanks to God that His plan for my life was not to be a repeat felon and gang leader/general of a criminal group. I think it’s sad that anyone should have to lose his life this way, but no amount of words are going to convince anyone “what a sweet guy he was.” People should be forgiven for their wrongdoing, but they still have to face the consequences. I’m watching an entire generation perish because nobody will take responsibility for anyone’s actions. Open your eyes and view reality instead of making excuses and pretending nothing is wrong.
