Alleged MS-13 leader from East Boston charged with ordering murders of two teens

Demente

Oscar "Demente" Moran, arrested in January, 2016 as part of a local crackdown on the MS-13 gang, is now formally charged with ordering the murders of Wilson Martinez, 15, and Cristofer Perez de la Cruz, 16.

The feds had previously placed Moran, 25, at a large MS-13 conclave in Richmond, VA at which the decision to murder somebody - who turned out to be Perez de la Cruz was made. But in a new indictment, a federal grand jury identified Moran as a national MS-13 leader, the FBI reports:

The new indictment alleges that Duran was the leader of the Molinos Loco Salvatrucha (MLS) clique of MS-13 for the entire United States, as well as the Boston-area clique of MLS, and in those positions authorized (i.e. “greenlighted”) the murders of Wilson Martinez and Christofer Perez de la Cruz.

Federal authorities have said local MS-13 members murdered at least six people, either as part of an ongoing feud with the 18th Street Gang, or as an initiation rite for members seeking to move up in the organizations.

Innocent, etc.

I'm normally in favor of deporting foreign criminals, but in this case it would do more to harm MS-13 to plunk his ass in a nice US prison and leave him there. He's less likely to cause trouble by keeping him here, rather than sending him back home. (Even though I hate having to pay to house and feed him.)

Yeah, because gang leaders aren't able to continue operating from prison...

In the United States gang members order deaths and drug handling from inside prisons (pretty much all the dirty work/other trusted gang members who are free carry orders out (this is common knowledge among gang task force/it needs to stop by placing these high power gang members on ilands where it would take months to send communication out/remember with money people are baught so the idea is to slow their influence and power down). The iland would only house officers under regular polygraph test to feed, shower and any other movement around these inmates. All other contact would be under servalence and behind glass.

but unless you can keep each mara and 18th street member in total solitary confinement, it won't stop their activities, I'm afraid.

the gangs started in the united states and will continue organizing here, in or out of prison.

Do we know if MS-13 owns real estate? What is their net worth? Any connections on Wall Street?

Wall Street? Do we know if you're high...

It's an international gang. Think of the infrastructure and reach of cartels we've seen in the news. Not so ridiculous a concept, even if it's not super likely.

How is it that you become a leader of this gang by age 25?

25 is a fully mature adult. I understand our culture here in the U.S. is to delay adulthood as long as possible (buying and drinking alcohol, using tobacco age 21, staying on mom and dad's health insurance plans until 25, large percentage of 20-somethings living at home with mom and/or dad, so-called professional students, etc.) 25 is not an immature age, at least it shouldn't be.

That's middle-aged for a gangbanger.

The two kids who were killed as part of a gang initiation - were they gang involved, or just random kids in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Follow the link in the post "At a large MS-13 conclave" for more info.

"Two were killed by gang members looking for promotions by proving they could murder somebody while the third died because gang leaders had decided at a meeting to step up its wars with rivals across the eastern US."
