Share this post

Nine alleged members of a violent Chicago street gang have been charged with federal racketeering charges. ABC News reports the indictment claims the nine were part of a near South Side Street gang known as the Hobos, who US Attorney Gary Shapiro says intimidated the neighborhood for years through the use of violence, intimidation, murders, attempted murders, and assaults with firearms against anyone who posed a threat to them, or jeopardized their operations.  Four of the nine alleged gang members face a mandatory life sentence, or the death penalty if convicted of murder.
