It will be interesting to see if the Parras will show up for trial. Gang-bangers released prior to a murder case? How often does that happen?

Well, I guess gang members aren't the only ones who have to fear gang violence. When is someone in this town going to do something?!

Rot in prison dirtbags.

The Parra brothers were arrested during operation Gator Roll back in 2007, they were later released. I believe the Parrra brothers have been and still are incarcerated in connection with the death of George Ied.

The "war on (fill in the blank)" will always win over government and law enforcement because the other side doesn't have rules to play by..our law enforcement and governments do. Sad reality.

One of those involved, Steven Santana, has a profile on the "Write a Prisoner" website. What a catch! First he writes: "I do have tattoos on my chest and on both arms but not below my elbows." And then, to make him even more alluring, he states: "I'm an intellectual". He'll be testifying against the other three, so maybe he is a genius, albeit likely short lived one.
