What set u claim

Seems more than apparent that we have a real bad gang problem in America. I even feel that from my neck of the woods where I was reared, that I may have contributed to this problem. You see, I was a well respected and venerated member of a social club growing up that the Police in my city called a gang (long live CTO (Castalia Taking Over)/ AMB (Ambassador) Folk nation).

Blackwater USA guards shot at Iraqi civilians as they tried to drive away from a Baghdad square on Sept. 16. The first U.S. soldiers to arrive at the scene, where they found no evidence that Iraqis had even fired weapons, based this on a report. They have said that the Blackwater Mercenaries have even drawn and maybe even fired weapons at US soldiers. But it figures since most are from place other than the US and have no dedication to the US other than for that loot. Many come from South Africa and places in South America that hire military personnel from other countries to protect their economic interest.

That’s why folks consider Blackwater as cowboys and why the UN is asking for a serious investigation of this gang of sociopaths. I figure they know they are wrong or else they would have not have removed their folk from Baghdad this past october. Even the Baltimore Sun has sugest that what Blackwater is doing is really yet to be understood and that they may be doing even more dirt than what is being reported.

All i'm saying is that me and my folk were considered BT (Bonafied Trill) back in the day and that may have been why the police called us a gang. I am also saying that I think that Blackwater is a gang too, and that if we didn't have all of these wars going on (Somalia, Afganastan, Iraq) we would not need to hire killers like Blackwater. And I bet as they drive around making their kill videos, they see each other, shoot gang signs and say "What set you claim."

Good post.

I performed a piece I wrote last year about gangs. Mixed reaction.

The punchline explained that the gang the kid joined was the US Army.

These merceneries scare the hell outta me.

It amazes me that the U.S. is hiring mercenaries, but then again mercenaries can get away with doing the dirty dirty work that our boys wouldn't be able to get away with under the scrutiny of the public. Saying that, mercenaries have been around for as long as there have been armies. They are what they are.

As for the U.S. Army being a gang, well I suppose that depends on how you are defining a gang.

Hi, I love how you are running this blog. I just started a blog of my own and I was wondering if you would like to do a link exchange with my site. My site can be found at:


If you want to do this, just leave a comment on my site, on any post, and I’ll link you later that night.

Darling Boy, You know I think you have a beautiful mind and all that--but your posts exhaust me. I need a xanax and a nap after reading them. :)

Don said...

I agree, good post.

It's sad how someone always have to die before these type of gang activities are brought to the light.

But I guess that's how it was, growing up, when we were cliqued up.

KIKI said...

I like to think of them more like the Mafia...with George W as The Don. He's done nothing, in my opinion, but turn good soldiers into bullies...and like jali said...they scare the hell out of me...and I don't scare easily.

S.K. said...

whenever I hear BlackWater I also hear ChaChing in my head.

GC said...

you said it

And I am very interested in Jali's piece that she mentioned right up there.

Now let's talk about NYC police.

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

Clay - not the army, Blackwell

Don - are u saying we FOLK? Figured we was in blood.

KiKi - GWB at Al pachino material.

SK - Your name is my favorite piece of altilery (SKS)

GC - now we know they a set that uses mop sticks as their ID

Thic Flair said...

MysTery said...

Blackwater boy, to whom are you
Beholden? Not to any,
No conscience does those deeds review
For which you gain a penny.

It is a private enterprise,
This killing and this maiming
Of innocents, which telling lies
Keeps hidden by disclaiming.

Where lies then your allegiance
If not to state or country?
To profit, by coincidence,
And to the vested gentry.

To those as do not pay their tax,
Because, possessing all,
They may enjoy, as they relax,
A cornucopia--

While these taxpayers, and these boys
Enlisted in the army
Have no retreat, and hardly voice,
While surging uniformly.

If profit comes to be in doubt,
Then yours is all the luck:
In luxury, you may get out,
While they, alas, are stuck.

Blackwater boy, to whom are you
Beholden? To yourself,
As profits gainfully accrue
Though pilfered, proffered pelf.

imsmall - now thats a poem thats on point
