    Wait. Maplewood Has a Gang?

    According to this article, convicted gang member Mendez was court ordered to NOT associate with any Maplewood Gang members. According to conversations I've had with local politicians and ranking officials at the MPD, Malden doesn't have gangs and those calling themselves a "gang" in Maplewood are a bunch of tween-aged wannabes who were a nuisance but harmless.

    I'm so confused.

    Hell girl, Former Chief Coye told me the same thing...almost word for word.  Of course I did not believe him for a minute.

    mayfoto: Given the number of folks in my hood who are obviously packing weapons and dealing drugs, I never believed it either.

    yes, it's more of a city district thing. Maplewood, Ferryway, etc. 

    As far as "gang activity" goes, it's pretty much nothing.

    I would have to say "gang" gets a few more readers than "tween-aged wannabes". Unfortunately fear always sells in the news.

    Tell that to the dead kids and all the people who have had shootings in their once quiet neighborhoods. Take a walk around some evening and tell us what you see.

    As far as Cory, Even his friends say Cory was shooting first. He was not in a gang.

    You are 100% incorrect. Do some reseaarch on the internet about graffiti, then take a stroll around and see if you recognize anything. When this group of kids put a name to their group they created a mess that will take years to rectify. Go on Youtube and look up the videos from this group in Malden and tell me what they are doing. By the way you mention Roxbury in an earlier post, guess where lots of new Maldonians are from. Not Melrose.

    Some videos are under the names of the kids who were killed. I will dig around for you to find what the others are under.

    I wouldnt want to believe it either, but tis true some scumbags in maplewood carry guns, have them hidden around and a few have moved from Boston to malden, and yes Virginia, there is a gang in maplewood, they tell you that because like the former PD Chief, they are in denial....they think they live in wellesley...actually they know they dont live there, BUT they want everybody else to think that malden ":is the best place to raise your kids".  Watch out for the motorcycle club "gang"...they make the mdubs look like alter boys....  even better, open your windows at night this summer....it aint fire crackers!

    It's great to see the community coming together.  Some wonderful photos on the Patch about the 4th of July.  Hope they don't get taken down anytime soon.
