The Ã¢â?¬Å?BloodsÃ¢â?¬Â in Charlottesville?
Last Friday near Garrett Square, a 15 year-old was beaten so badly he’ll need to have a metal plate inserted in his face, says Charlottesville police Captain Chip Harding in a Charlottesville Newsplex report. According to the teen, he was jumped by over a dozen members of the gang theÂ "Bloods" for refusing to join. Police can’t confirm whether or not the Bloods are really recruiting in Charlottesville, but they have arrested one of the attackers and charged him with the assault and for being a member of a gang. As was recently reported in the Hook.net, Charlottesville has its own gangs and AG Robert McDonnell was recently in town to launch a gang prevention program.
