Gangsters in one city are taking full advantage of pro-crime District Attorneys.
As a result, they’re flashing wads of stolen cash and rapping about their crimes.
And you’ll be infuriated when you find out how they got their massive stacks of money.
Members of Brooklyn’s “Woo Gang” have been living it up after stealing $4.3 million in taxpayer money that was supposed to go to unemployed people during the pandemic.
Apparently, emboldened by the New York District Attorneys’ pro-crime policies – they didn’t even bother to hide their crimes.
In fact, they were flexing with stacks of cash all over social media.
Incredibly, they even rapped about their exploits.
In a music video for their song “Trappin” they sang “unemployment got us working a lot.”
In all, they’re accused of submitting unemployment applications with stolen information from 800 people.
The claims totaled about $20 million and they managed to collect $4.3 million between March 2020 and October 2021.
Feds finally caught the bad actors when gang member Jean Pierre used an encrypted messaging app to attempt to buy personal information of New Yorkers including their driver’s license numbers for $150.
“Yoo bro I need NY pros with the DL ASAP,” Jean Pierre wrote in a message.
The 11 gang members were finally arrested and charged in federal court in New York’s eastern district.
US Attorney Breon Peace said he will keep going after gang members who try to rip off the federal government.
That is like a bucket of cold water thrown on organized criminals who have been enjoying the pro-crime atmosphere following Black Lives Matters riots.
Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez has been busy backing up Manhattan’s pro-crime District Attorney Alvin Bragg who wants to only prosecute murders and “serious” sexual assault crimes.
As violent crime increases, Bragg has been forced to back off of some of his extreme pro-crime measures.
But the overall political climate is geared toward a focus on “equity” rather than integrity.
Even U.S. Attorney Breon Peace was tapped to replace a prosecutor who “used the office’s official Twitter account to express pride in the New York Police Department, without acknowledging the racial justice issues that animated the protests,” according to The New York Times.
But there’s a limit to how much blatant bragging anyone can stand – and the Woo Gang members just found out how much crime and swagger it takes to land in jail these days.
