Damn this sounds like the kind of story you would see in a LA gang flick. Since when did gangbanging in New York become cool!?!?
The 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.
“It is hard to imagine a more compelling case for transfer to adult status,” Federal Judge Joseph Bianco wrote in his ruling. “The juvenile justice system, including the limited sentencing options…is simply ill-equipped and woefully insufficient under the circumstances of this case, to adequately address in the interest of justice these most grave charges.”
WHY did this deranged son-of-a-b*tch execute these kids you ask?
After she had a falling-out with the shooter, Argueta asked members of the L.A.-based 18th Street Gang, a rival to his MS-13 with tentacles across America, to beat him up. Both are Latino gangs.
She gave her ex-beau’s address in Suffolk County to local members of the 18th St. Gang posse. The ex told the 17-year-old MS-13 member about the beef and they decided Argueta and her toddler, Diego, must die, the feds allege.
Argueta was shot in the head and the chest; little Diego was shot twice in the head.
Gangbanging is stupid enough as is, but killing women and children over a lover’s quarrel…we gotta do better people.
