  6. photos of Jamiel Shaw wearing red bandanas, with red hats, throwing up specific gang signs are all over myspace. Does anyone really want to know the truth without name calling? Just go to that myspace page of his and click on the friends. This guy was a banger.

  7. he shouldn’t even have been on the streets. My prayers go out to the family of Jamiel Shaw. All gang bangers legal or illegal need to go to prison and stay there. What is wrong with people. And to the city officials of los angeles. You must convict this person and send a message to every gang banger out there that we are not going to tolerate this crap. Deport the rest of the illegal gangbangers that are still here and make sure this guy pays for his crime..
