  • Waterloo IA man gets prison for gang recruitment

    http://blogs.desmoinesregister.com/d...g-recruitment/

    WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A 38-year-old Waterloo man will serve up to 10 years in prison for recruiting teenagers for a gang.

    Vernon “Spunky” Webster had pleaded guilty earlier this month to four counts of gang recruitment and two counts of harassment.

    According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, Webster said he was a chief for a Chicago-based street gang. Court records say he tried to get four teenagers, ages 14 to 16, to join in January. Webster also tried to persuade a 15-year-old boy to sell marijuana and guns.

    Prosecutors say a 16-year-old boy who wanted to leave the gang was threatened by Webster. The boy says Webster told him to pay $500 as a sort of exit fee or face the consequences: a beating or even death.
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
