Salt Lake murder suspect a familiar face in Belize | The Salt Lake Tribune

December 29, 2010
Salt Lake murder suspect a familiar face in Belize | The Salt Lake Tribune: "Jules Vasquez recognized the man in the photograph right away.

'It’s Big Tom,' he said. 'Absolutely, 100 percent.'

Kenneth Lewellyn Flowers, 33, sits in Salt Lake County Jail, charged with shooting and killing a man in a Main Street apartment on Dec. 18.

Prosecutors have also charged him with being a restricted person in possession of a firearm, because he was twice been deported to Belize.

That’s how Vasquez, a reporter in Belize City, recognized him. For the better part of a decade, Kenneth 'Big Tom' Flowers was known as an enforcer for a once-prominent Belizean street gang — a usual suspect for police officers, someone who knew about life on both sides of the gun.

'He was notorious,' said Vasquez, who has covered the city’s gang problems for 7 News in Belize. 'I knew him as a hitman. He was a gun for hire.'

In 2002, Flowers was shot in the chest but refused to cooperate with police in an investigation, according to Belizean media reports. He was charged with shooting and killing a man in front of a mechanic’s shop just two days later, though he was never convicted on the charge."

MS-13 gang member to be tried as adult in execution-style slayings of Long Island woman, son

December 29, 2010
MS-13 gang member to be tried as adult in execution-style slayings of Long Island woman, son: "feds are prosecuting a teen gang member as an adult in the execution-style slayings of a young Long Island woman and her 2-year-old son, the Daily News has learned.

A Salvadoran member of the notorious MS-13 gang, who was 17 years old at the time, lured a mother and her child to a Central Islip industrial park last February and, in the coldest of cold-blooded murders, they were shot in the head, the feds say.

A judge gave prosecutors the unusual go-ahead to bring murder in aid of racketeering charges against the thug - similar to what they would slap a mobster with for carrying out a hit, court papers reveal."

“PT Gang,” who have made arrangements on targeting associates belonging to the rival gang, known as “Acorn.Violent gang member shot to death by police

December 23, 2010
Violent gang member shot to death by police - National Violent Crime | Examiner.com: "Oakland police say that he was driving en route to target rival gang members.

Police say that there were three other people who were inside the vehicle. One of those three was captured at the location and was, then, taken into police custody, but was released later on. As for the other two suspects, they fled after the wreck, which followed a short highway pursuit. The crash occurred in East Oakland Monday.

The teen that was fatally gunned down by two Oakland police officers has been identified as 19-year-old Obataiye Edwards of Oakland. Edwards was the one who wielded a gun at the officers, leading them to shoot him, according to authorities. Reportedly, he was also a member of a fierce West Oakland gang.

Cops say that the vehicle that the suspects occupied was a Lincoln sedan, and when police looked into the trunk of the car, they discovered a loaded SKS-style assault rifle.

Police say that the hot pursuit started at approximately 1:30pm Monday after cops received a report regarding four affiliates of a faction, known as the “PT Gang,” who have made arrangements on targeting associates belonging to the rival gang, known as “Acorn.”"

maximum security Edmonton prison clash between rival prison gangs during a recreation period Tuesday afternoon

July 3, 2008
clash between rival prison gangs during a recreation period Tuesday afternoon at the Edmonton Institution. It wasn't known Wednesday which gangs were involved.
The men were wielding homemade knives and eight of them were stabbed. One inmate was shot by a guard, said Correctional Services of Canada spokesman Rick Dhym.
"Warning shots were fired," said Mr. Dhym. "He refused to give up his weapon and stop attacking another inmate."
Ground ambulances and a helicopter were called to the prison northwest of Edmonton to transport the injured men to hospitals in the city.
About 40 inmates remained in the yard, refusing to go back to their cells. Guards had only recovered three weapons at that point and were concerned that some of the men still had knives, Mr. Dhym said.Yells could be heard from outside the gates as guards attempted to negotiate with the men.
At one point a man yelled, "Give us some f---ing water!"
The negotiations didn't work.The inmates broke into a fenced off-area where nine cords of wood, enough to fill the boxes of nine pickup trucks, were kept for an on-site ceremonial sweat lodge.By 10 p.m. local time, two fires were blazing in the yard and three fire trucks were sitting in the prison parking lot on standby.Inmates set the prison sweat lodge ablaze and guards shot six canisters of tear gas into the yard about an hour later.As flames shot further into the night sky, the firefighters could no longer attack the blaze from above with aerial hoses, fire spokeswoman Nikki Booth said.A crew of four firefighters had to go into the yard.
"They had to unroll their hoses and get escorted in" by a tactical unit, Ms. Booth said. "These are not situations that paramedics or firefighters generally face."After the tear gas ended the standoff, around 11:20 p.m. local time, prisoners were taken from the yard one at a time, strip-searched for weapons, washed down and returned to their cells, Mr. Dhym said.The maximum security prison remained under lockdown Wednesday, as police and correctional officers investigated what happened.
No prison staff members were injured during the incident.
Eight people were taken to hospitals Tuesday. Two were in critical condition. Two more people were treated at hospital Wednesday for minor injuries.It is not clear what the inmates were trying to negotiate for.Violent incidents are not uncommon in the maximum security prison, said Kevin Grabowsky, regional president for the union that represents correctional officers.
"Our gang problems are pretty serious. There's always a tension inside," he said.
In June 2007, 60 inmates refused to go back into their cells and broke into the sweat lodge area, burning the wood inside and some plastic chairs. In 2001, seven inmates were injured in a violent incident when 50 men refused to re-enter their cells.
