WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — From California to New Jersey to Wilmington, the notorious Bloods gang has made it to our neck of the woods.

Yesterday we learned police say the man who died outside the Rhino Club Monday morning was a five-star general in the ii street gang, a branch of the Bloods.

Taaron Jones died early Monday morning in downtown Wilmington, stabbed during a fight. Jones was also known as Merk Biiddy. Police say he was a five-star general in the ii street gang.

According to a gang profile by the Department of Justice, a five-star general is the set’s single leader. The profile says leaders like Jones are not elected. Instead they assert themselves by developing criminal enterprises and their reputation for violence, among other factors.

The ii street gang started in East Orange, NJ, as a set of the United Blood Nation gang, the East Coast branch of the Los Angeles-based Bloods.

The gang profile, which takes a look at the entire East Coast Blood Nation, also dissects the gang’s role by region. It says in the southeast the gang transports drugs from New York City for distribution throughout the region, particularly North Carolina.

FBI officials in New Jersey say they have shaken down the ii gang numerous times arresting several gang leaders. They say many times when a gang is brought down the remaining members often leave to different cities.

At this time we do not know if Jones had a direct connection with the branch in New Jersey.

“Everyone loved him” ———REALLY? Hmmmm……….
I find it hard to believe his victims loved him!

I like the idea someone mentioned about just letting all of the gangs fight it out in an arena. Then maybe the few that are left standing can be reformed.

How about we start a CIG gang (Citizens Against Gangs)? No drugs, no crimes for money, we just take out gang thugs, therefore reducing crimes greatly and restoring society to the safer state it was years ago before the gangs took over.

Maybe a lobbyist group could get a law passed to make gang signs, handshakes, dances, flags, tattoos, and affiliations illegal (not just the crimes they committ). We could sentence them all to isolation on a remote island and them see how long they could survive.

It’s never enough! Not until the gangs are dead. DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY HONORING A DISHONORABLE MAN YOU ARE GLAMORIZING THE SITUATION TO YOUNG CHILDREN WHO WILL TRY TO IMMITATE HIM? JUST WHAT WE NEED……ANOTHER GANG RECRUITMENT TOOL.

When the investigation of this murder is completed, I’m sure that the end result will not be that the so called ” evil racist white man” killed this young man. Black on black violence is is a sad but true fact in this case and the result of a thug lifestyle which this young man lived and ultimately died for. Another life snuffed out for nothing people. When will we learn that lesson people? Don’t turn this into a race issue unless you look inside your own race first.
