A brazen Northwest Detroit street gang had a tendency to brag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about dealing drugs, the guns they owned, how they robbed kids walking home from school and how they attempted to kill people.

YouTube videos was another one of the many social media items allegedly posted by members of the Detroit street gang known as “Band Crew”.

The only problem for them was that the Feds were watching closely.

Eight members of the violent gang were indicted by a federal grand jury.

Federal agents and police say the street gang they’ve arrested and charged used to terrorize gas stations, creating an atmosphere of fear and intimidation in the neighborhood.

In a 28-page indictment unsealed on Tuesday gives a  detailed account of how the viloent group of hoodlums terrorized residents of northwest Detroit.

The Band Crew, which included juveniles, was composed of smaller gangs with names such as: Young N Crispy, Constantly Making Hundreds – formerly known as Cash Money Hoes – and FOE Life, which stands for Family Over Everything Love is Forever.
