MS-13 Gang's Grotesque Torture In The U.S. Has Been Revealed!
An 18-year-old girl has allegedly tortured and killed another girl because she thought she was "responsible" for her boyfriend's death.
The gang is responsible for drug dealing and criminal enterprise, and has deep connections to Mexican cartels.
A teen MS-13 gang member tortured and stabbed another girl to death in Virginia because she thought the girl was responsible for her boyfriend’s death, she told interrogators.
Eighteen-year-old Venus Romero Iraheta initially claimed she hadn’t killed 15-year-old Damaris Reyes Rivas, but pleaded guilty on Monday to “first-degree murder, abduction and criminal street gang participation,” FOX5 DC reported.
In an interrogation video taken on February 14—a month after Rivas was murdered—Iraheta confessed to the crime, the outlet said.
Iraheta blamed the girl for the death of her boyfriend Christian Sosa Rivas, who was also part of the MS-13 gang, she told interrogators.
Reyes Rivas was taken to a park in Fairfax County, Virginia, where a group of MS-13 gang members were waiting, FOX5 DC reported.
Iraheta and gang members there made the victim walk through snow without shoes or a shirt, and Iraheta “sliced off a tattoo Sosa Rivas had given to Reyes Rivas on her hand” before stabbing her in the stomach, according to the outlet.
“‘You’re going to remember me until the day we see each other in hell. Don’t forget my name,’” Iraheta recalled telling Reyes Rivas, the outlet reported.
BREAKING: Crackdown On Cartel Gangs Nabs A BIG Fish!
A crackdown on the MS-13 gang has led to the arrest of the group's leader in the Northeast United States.
From The NY Post:
Seventeen high-ranking members and associates of the notorious MS-13 gang were busted for plying their bloody trade in at least eight Long Island towns — including the violent group’s Northeast leader, officials said Thursday.
“Not only did we arrest the highest-level Mara Salvatrucha leader in the Northeast who reports to MS-13 in El Salvador, but we sent a message that we will continue to investigate their violent crimes and bring justice to their victims,” DEA Special Agent in Charge James Hunt said in a statement.
A total of 17 defendants, including a dozen members of MS-13, were slapped with a laundry list of charges, including second-degree murder, drug trafficking and conspiracy.
The suspects face up to 25 years to life behind bars if they’re convicted on their top charges, officials said.
“This massive multi-agency investigation laid bare the global size, complexity, and brutality of MS-13, and these indictments strike a heavy blow to the gang’s operations on Long Island,” Nassau County DA Madeline Singas said in a statement.
“These alleged gang members have terrorized vulnerable immigrant communities, trafficked deadly heroin into our neighborhoods, and this coalition of more than 22 agencies nationwide will continue to be unrelenting in our efforts to dismantle MS-13.”

Check Out The "Racial" Reason This City Is Doing Away With Its Database Of Gang Members
Portland is doing away with its gang database because there aren't enough white gangs.
From The Daily Caller:
Portland police will no longer maintain a database of suspected gang members, due to concerns that the vast majority of people with the gang label are racial minorities.
Starting Oct. 15, the Portland Police Bureau will end the 20-year practice of issuing gang member designations, which police say can lead to “unintended consequences” and a lifelong stigma even for those who have given up the gang lifestyle. Officials intend to notify the approximately 300 people on the gang list that the bureau will purge all records related to the designations, The Oregonian reported.
“There are still criminal gang members. That doesn’t go away because we don’t have a gang designation,” said Capt. Mike Krantz, according to The Oregonian. “We’re not pretending gang violence doesn’t exist. We’re just taking this one thing away.”
City officials and community activists had long urged the bureau to stop attaching the gang designation to criminal suspects, claiming the practice disproportionately impacted people of color. A review of police data by The Oregonian last year found that 81 percent of the “criminal gang affiliates” in Portland’s database were racial or ethnic minorities.
“This is too long coming,” said Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who is also the city’s police commissioner. “It was the right thing to do.”
Under the current policy, police officers can add someone to the gang database if the person self-identifies as a gang member, participates in a gang initiation ritual, commits a gang-related crime or displays two or more “observable signs” of gang membership. Neither a criminal conviction nor an arrest is required to attach a gang designation to a suspect’s file.
Portland police label about 100 people as gang members each year, according to The Oregonian. When an officer runs the name of a person who has been flagged as a gang member, the label will show up in a special report that includes any known information about nicknames, employers, schools, vehicles and associates.
Officers will no longer keep those reports and flags, says Krantz. Instead, they will record only alleged criminal conduct such as illegal weapons possession or involvement in shootings.
