Feds can put Bloods leader Ronald Herron on trial: judge
Whether you are a white nationalist in Posse Commitatus, or a street gang leader the constitution and laws of the United States do apply to you, as they do equally to us all.
A federal judge today shot down an argument from the leader of all Bloods street gangs in New York City that the federal government has no authority to try him on drug trafficking and weapons charges.
Ronald Herron, who calls himself “Ra Diggs” and dabbles in rap music, claimed he is not bound by federal law.
“I am not a party to … the Constitution of the United States of America,” Herron had written to the judge.
But today Brooklyn federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis said he was not persuaded.
“I am denying your motion in its entirety,” the judge told the gangster.
