Alleged Gang Members Condemn Killing of Minor

Jermaine Garnett

This morning, a group of individuals from the Lake Independence area came out condemning the recent killings of innocent young persons, including the most recent shooting death of fifteen-year-old Dwayne Gabourel. These men, who are known to have run-ins with the law for the alleged involvement in gangs, say that the gun-wielding youths of today have no respect and the killing of young people cannot be condoned.

“We never ever did that ina fi we older guys’ history. So the younger guys dehn weh di come now, dah that make the thing difficult because the people dehn weh know dehn fi get hurt wah always have a protection over dehn self and watch over dehn self so it wah harder fi yo ketch that individual. If you hurt wah individual weh know ih noh fi get hurt dah di easiest thing fi do. That individual wah neva expect fi get hurt because ih noh have no relationship with no kinda affiliation or nothing.”
