BREAKING News Out Of MANHATTAN- THEY GOT 16 OF THEM!

Posted by DINO PORRAZZO at AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS

Well now, in a rare move Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg actually did the job he is expected to do and has enforced the law- at least for now.

Another surprising element of this report is that there are none of those evil ‘assault weapons’ involved.

You know -the evil black AR-15’s that liberals have no clue about but since they have rails that accommodate sights, lights and other harmless items such as pistol grips which actually help in stabilizing the firearm the libs consider them ‘assault weapons.’

They are not. they are simply rifles that look cool, are fun to shoot are are NOT FULLY AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUNS as the liberal media and our demented president would have you believe.

They operate the same as any semi automatic firearm and actually disperse a relatively small round.

Yes folks, all black market handguns.

These guns are easily obtainable on the street and the police have their hands tied for the most part.

Yesterday’s heroes are now today’s racist bad guys.

Officers can’t do their job for fear of losing everything they own and ending up in prison.

They get charged with racism and have been prohibited from effectively doing their jobs.

Search and frisk is racist. Chokeholds are absolutely out of the question and they are the victims of a targeted attack beginning with Obama and has been taken to a new level by the Socialists who have mysteriously changed their positions on a hell of a lot of issues.

Marriage is between a man and a woman.

There are two sexes- male and female.

Securing our borders was once a major priority.

The list goes on and on.

Okay, I got off track but that’s okay. I am passionate about the future of our country, our 2nd Amendment rights and the respect, safety and well being of the brave men and women who suit up everyday to protect and serve America.

PRESS RELEASE

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg, Jr., and New York City Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell today announced the indictment of [sixteen] members of the Own Every Dollar (“O.E.D.”) criminal enterprise connected to a murder, attempted murder and a string of violent armed robberies and shootings from Spring 2021 to Spring 2022 in Washington Heights, Midtown, the Lower East Side and the Bronx.

The 16 defendants are charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment with a total of at least 90 counts, including Enterprise Corruption. Federal RICO charges against O.E.D. were also unsealed today as part of a parallel investigation by the Southern District of New York.

Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Frank A. Tarentino III, the Special Agent-in-Charge of the New York Field Office of the Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”), Keechant Sewell, the Commissioner of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”), and Kevin P. Bruen, the Superintendent of the New York State Police (“NYSP”), announced the unsealing of an Indictment charging 16 members and associates of the Own Every Dollar (or “OED”) gang, a subset of the Trinitarios, with committing various racketeering, narcotics, and firearms offenses, including murder and attempted murder.

JOWENKY NUNEZ, JR., a/k/a “Juju,” JERRIN PENA, a/k/a “Rooga,” a/k/a “Perry,” JUSTIN DEAZA, a/k/a “Booka,” a/k/a “Pepito,” WILSON MENDEZ, a/k/a “Tati,” BRIAN HERNANDEZ, a/k/a “Malikai,” HUGO RODRIGUEZ, a/k/a “Juice,” MAYOVANEX RODRIGUEZ, a/k/a “Menorcito,” JOHANN ZAPATA, a/k/a “Zapata,” ELVIS TREJO, a/k/a “Po Po,” STEVEN JOAQUIN, a/k/a “Baby Gunz,” IYAURY RODRIGUEZ-ROSARIO, a/k/a “Bricha,” JOWENKY NUNEZ, SR., a/k/a “Bala,” ARGENIS TAVAREZ, a/k/a “Nose,” a/k/a “A-Kash,” VICTOR COLON, a/k/a “V,” JOSE GUTIERREZ, a/k/a “G,” and NIJMAH MARTE, a/k/a “N,” a/k/a “Nena,” are members or associates of the OED gang.

The Indictment charges five defendants—JOWENKY NUNEZ, JR., JERRIN PENA, BRIAN HERNANDEZ, MAYOVANEX RODRIGUEZ, and IYAURY RODRIGUEZ-ROSARIO—with committing one or more of a total of five murders in the Bronx and Manhattan.  Eleven of the defendants—JOWENKY NUNEZ, JR., JERRIN PENA, JUSTIN DEAZA, WILSON MENDEZ, BRIAN HERNANDEZ, HUGO RODRIGUEZ, ELVIS TREJO, STEVEN JOAQUIN, IYAURY RODRIGUEZ-ROSARIO, JOWENKY NUNEZ, SR., and ARGENIS TAVAREZ—are charged with committing one or more of a total of 12 attempted murders.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said:  “Our indictment alleges that for the past four years, OED has wreaked havoc in this City – committing multiple murders, numerous armed robberies, shootings, assaults, and also dealing dangerous drugs, including fentanyl.  The defendants charged today include OED’s leadership and some of the gang’s most violent members, who we allege murdered five victims over the past four years, committed 13 shootings, and committed seven robberies or attempted robberies.  The charges we unseal today required the partnership and dedication of our law enforcement partners.  It required us to work together, side by side, across jurisdictions, to protect the people.  I want to thank all of our partners here today for their hard work on these and so many other investigations.”

DEA Special Agent-in-Charge Frank Tarentino said: “These arrests and seizures amplify our commitment and focus to safeguard our communities from the perils of violent crime, and the destruction that follows.  The DEA works in partnership with our law enforcement partners having two goals in mind: saving lives and making our communities healthy and safe.  I applaud the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Southern District of New York and the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force comprising DEA, NYPD, and NYSP for their diligence and commitment to this impactful investigation.”

NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said:  “These individuals lived by a brutal code of street violence – where firearms were recklessly pulled out and indiscriminately fired, where innocent lives were disregarded, where families and neighborhoods were traumatized and torn apart. Now they will no longer be able to terrorize New Yorkers.  And make no mistake: Organized groups like this do terrorize.  They sow fear and disorder, and they show zero respect for the lives of the people who reside and work in the neighborhoods where they wreak havoc.  The vast resources and untiring efforts of the NYPD and our law enforcement partners, across multiple agencies, are concentrated on the nexus of gangs, guns, and drugs that drive much of the crime in New York City.  And all the people we serve are safer today because of our collaboration.”

NYSP Superintendent Kevin P. Bruen said: “The charges brought today against these dangerous individuals are a direct result of the vigilant work conducted by law enforcement partners.  These partnerships were instrumental in shutting down this racketeering operation, took dangerous drugs and weapons off our streets, and interrupted heinous crimes in our neighborhoods.  Let this be a strong message that New York State will not tolerate those who bring drugs and violence into our communities.”

As alleged in the Indictment unsealed today in Manhattan federal court and in statements made in court filings.

“As alleged, O.E.D. wreaked havoc on our streets,” said District Attorney Bragg. “This carefully structured criminal enterprise developed elaborate schemes to carry out robberies and violence, including tracking their victims before premeditated attacks. Today we have made New Yorkers safer by taking major violence drivers off the street, but we know we have much more work to do. My Office will continue to combat violent crime in tandem with our law enforcement and community partners so everyone in Manhattan can live safely in their neighborhoods.”

“These individuals lived by a brutal code of street violence – where firearms were recklessly pulled out and indiscriminately fired, where innocent lives were disregarded, where families and neighborhoods were traumatized and torn apart,” stated NYPD Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell. “Now they will no longer be able to terrorize New Yorkers. And make no mistake: Organized groups like this do terrorize. They sew fear and disorder, and they show zero respect for the lives of the people who reside and work in the neighborhoods where they wreak havoc. The vast resources and untiring efforts of the NYPD and our law enforcement partners, across multiple agencies, are concentrated on the nexus of gangs, guns, and drugs that drive much of the crime in New York City. And all the people we serve are safer today because of our collaboration.”

According to court documents and statements made on the record, members of O.E.D. shot and killed Jeffrey Sanchez during a robbery on September 20, 2021. As Mr. Sanchez walked to his parked car outside of the Opus Lounge at 417 West 202nd Street, defendants DAMIEN SUAREZ and JOHN ASLAN rushed towards him, and ASLAN shot him in the back.

ASLAN and SUAREZ then stood over Mr. Sanchez, ripping his watch and jewelry from him as he lay motionless on the sidewalk.  The indictment charges three other non-fatal shootings and 15 armed robberies, with robberies intensifying in frequency in the fall of 2021. The indictment includes allegations of at least 14 different firearms that were acquired and used by O.E.D. in this period.

The majority of the criminal activity took place in Manhattan, with some robberies and a shooting occurring in the Bronx. A number of the crimes included in the Enterprise Corruption series of pattern acts had been previously charged as felonies by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

The indictment charges that O.E.D. is a highly structured criminal enterprise. Its members meet to plan their criminal acts and recite oaths of loyalty and have written rules that can be changed by a vote of the membership.

Court documents also describe the different roles that members of O.E.D. played in the carefully planned and executed robberies of patrons of nightclubs and restaurants.  Some members rented luxury vehicles to use as getaway cars, while others were tasked with acquiring guns, or scouting victims on social media or in person. Certain individuals were tasked with actually committing robberies, while others fenced the stolen jewelry and watches. O.E.D purposefully targeted different clubs and restaurants in a variety of neighborhoods. When victims resisted, O.E.D. members pistol-whipped or shot them.

The indictment also charges that certain members and associates of O.E.D. committed acts of violence to improve their position or reputation within O.E.D., and to improve the reputation of O.E.D. itself.

The District Attorney’s Violent Criminal Enterprises Unit is prosecuting the case, under the supervision of Chris Prevost (Chief of the Violent Criminal Enterprises Unit) and Peter Pope (Executive Assistant District Attorney for Gun Violence Prevention).

The District Attorney thanked District Attorney Darcel Clark for help provided by her Assistant District Attorneys in the Bronx District Attorney’s Violent Criminal Enterprises Bureau. The District Attorney also thanked United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams and federal investigators for their collaboration and assistance.
