Native Mob takedown: a closer look at the charges [PHOTOS]

Categories: Crime

The federal indictment names 24 suspected Native Mob members.
Over the past two weeks, local and federal law enforcement agencies have been collaborating on a statewide takedown of the Native Mob.

As we first reported in our November cover story, "The Banishing," the Native Mob started in south Minneapolis in the '90s, and has since established a national reputation through violent and drug-related crimes.

The indictment, which was unsealed in full last week, describes the gang as a well-organized criminal enterprise, alleging racketeering, witness tampering, conspiracy, and more. Maximum sentences for those charged range from 20 years to life in prison. Below is a closer look at the alleged Native Mob members and the individual charges. Notice that all 24 are charged with RICO conspiracy, which allows for extended penalties for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.

I see alot of finger pointing and other name being dragged in this which is sad, lets not lose sight of what this articule is about these young men are in jail for a reason. As for Janet I cn understand one of these men are your son and I feel bad for you no mother wants to see there child in prison, but running with gang and dealing drugs, and everything that goes along with that DOES NOT sound like contributing member of soceity. I just hope and pray these young men can get there lives together once they paid for there wrong doing. If the native people could work together and forget there own personal agendas maybe we all can make a difference.

My son GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL. Signed up for College at DUNWOODY INSTITUTE!! He wants to be a contributing member of society, get a College Degree, Pay taxes, get married and have a family he can provide for. HIS NAME IS LANCE HANKS!! He has one tri-mester of college credits from DUNWOODY-FALL QUARTER 2011!! He was supposed to start the next quarter JAN.10TH 2012. Went to jail on JAN.6TH 2012. He is a GOOD GUY, HAS A GOOD HEART--- Not all these guys are bad as they sound. Just a few make it sound awful. LANCE HAS A MOM AND DAD, SISTERS, BROTHERS, AUNTIES, COUSINS, AND REALLY GOOD FRIENDS. WE WILL SHOW A LARGE AMOUNT OF SUPPORT AT HIS COURT PROCEEDINGS. I LOVE MY SON LANCE. HE WANTED TO BE A DOCTER-- AUTOMOTIVE DOCTER JUST LIKE HIS DAD, AND HIS DADS DAD. That would be three generations of automachanics in the family. At least he was trying to BETTER HIMSELF. His uncle Charlie had a job lined up for him during the summer at his AUTOMOTIVE GARAGE--HANDS ON EXPERIENCE for the summer while school was out. THE ONLY GUNS HE HAD WAS HIS ARMS- HE HAS TWO GUNS--LEFT ARM & RIGHT ARM!! He was known for fist fighting with his arms. ONE ON ONE--HE CAN UFC FIGHT TOO.  If you wanna talk, just call me his ma, JANET 218 204 0286.

most of you people saying stuff on here are goin to forget about this when its all over with and nothings goin to change...its the same everywhere the reservations, mpls, and all everybodys doin is looking for somebody to blame. all i know is a lot parents don't give a f*ck so preoccupied with drugs, alcohol, and relationships its sad.

Good thing they got caught but- this doesn't help our community- it just makes more non native people look down on anshinabe people. Making it look like little earth is a breeding ground of the native mob gang. Maybe if native Americans were more recognized positively in the community - we wouldn't have these young men looking for acceptance in gangs. Yes columbus wiped out millions of us but he was from spain, let's take some responsibility and break the cycle people!

Ive been down this road before and I know what life is like when people turn their backs on you and treat you like trash..And then this elder named Mike Smith came into My life and showd me love like NO ONE before and He didnt care what I was doing in my life He just wanted to help me no matter if I was drunk or high...Now that is what being a Native is all about...

The Anishinabe (Original People) are a proud, strong, and traditional people. All of us who are left are the survivors of the strongest physically and spiritually. they tried to oppress us, make us slaves but couldn't. we've witnessed some of the most horrific violence a human being could possibly do to another human being, but still we carry on. Not afraid to die we act and speak against them because thats how we roll. 520 years worth of having the American flag shoved down our throats, little tiny American flags poked in our bullet wounds. the only ones that ever had our back was us, and its frustrating growing up and dealing with the constant racism thrown at us. some of us fight, others hate themselves, and a lot of us got lost, but we still remain with hope.no choice is a way of force. how the hell does a Columbian product make its way to a reservation that still doesn't have any cell phone reception? nobody wants to be there but they have to, but there are ways to escape, ways to make what you despise into something you love, a substance, imagination in a bottle, I can fly and I dont have to try. Just a bunch of loopy birds bumping into each other at the store, on the conveyor belt a case of 211 40 oz. beer, pampers, and milk. the cashiers doesn't know how you got the money, all she knows is your taking care of yours.the bloodline is thinning, half breeds running around looking to be a part of something, wanting to show everybody how strong they are, looking for acceptance. we used to be Warriors, but if you look at our DNA it'll say we are still Warriors. one push up through a song and we are singing a new song like we've been singing it for years. I never grew up speaking my language but when I heard it for the first time it felt so familiar and safe. there is something about young Native Men gathering looking to show their Warrior qualities that feels so familiar for us, but something just isn't right.I can only imagine in my previous life, when we came out of our tipi's to meet and greet these new people and trade with them, the first time I was introduced to a gun. this the new way of fighting. the creator has sent these tools in our life because its time to evolve now. these are bullets, you put them in here and pull this little trigger. you are now a force to be reckoned with. So now every once in a while I have the privilege to meet a young Warrior spirit and show him/her our new guns and bullets. and all it takes is just one little victory to make that Warrior want more. these are books, you put them in your head so that when your trigger is pulled you can keep on shooting for the rest of your life if you want to. make a difference in the world, be one in a million. or you can do what the devil wants you to do and be where he wants you to be, where you are the same person as the next cell over. do you want to hustle for pampers, give your life for the benefit of a cool gang name? thats all it is, even the leader is the Gangs bitch and must do what it takes to make this name scary for the future gangbangers to use it effectively. A bunch of 20 something young men, just doing that thing, the only thing available to them. if I was to lay a 20 year plan on the table along with Millions of dollars, a respected by everyone card, with instructions so easy a caveman can do it, or the option of sitting in this room for 20 years? obviously nobody in their right mind would choose the room, on purpose, but it seems to be end result. somebody just has to show them their options. our government was designed to kill the Native people so why would we depend on them to show us ways out? the answer is as simple as Giving a fuck and showing our young ones their options. having our own backs.I feel sorry for these fools, im sure they have regrets but at the same time they are a little proud of themselves for all the attention they've been getting, The Name "Native Mob" means something today, but tomorrow I'm going to see star wars 3D and I will have forgotten their story and what they look like Good Job Native Mobsters your street cred is 720 but now your in prison.

I am glad they are off the streets, cowards is what they are. They tried to kill my cousin on 2 differant occassions. 3 jumped him and stabbed him numerous times, didn't work he did not die. So next move shoot at him when he was with his 5 year old daughter. Heard he was making Native Mob look a fool so there was a hit put out on him. Others in our area were victims to them, never one on one. Always ganged up on or the NM boy pulled a weapon. Boys who can't stand on their own 2 feet. Selling drugsto their own people. Teaching violence and intimidation to our youth is not what real men do. These are cowards and criminals. Every race has them. Nothing special about these ones. These charges and this takedown is a great accomplishment, but it will not change much at all. There will be recruits or the next in line will step in and take over. And the cycle will begin again. But at least something was done. And sorry it took so long but also glad the feds took their time and got the most out of the investigations, hopefully they will all get maximum penalty.

Is there a "spiritual/traditional" circle to come back to?  These mis-guided men became criminals because they lacked a strong circle of famliy/friends to divert them away from the easy money of drugs.  They all started there life of crime as teens in the so called youth justice system.  So every pot head, pill head, or crack head all support the drug trade with their good ole american dollar

Most "circles" turn there backs on young men like these guys... which is why they join gangs. They see some sort of spirtuality or cultural belonging with groups like these. Hey like it or not our culture is a warrior based culture. Who at powwows are the most honored? The veterans..or Ogitcheedaa... warriors right? So its been inplanted into our mentality that the warrior culture is our culture. Its just that these young men have a skewed knowledge of that culture and create there own ways to interperate that culture. Why...hmm??? Because no one is there to step up to teach them the right way to be a warrior..ogitcheedaa but organizations like the native mob. So we as a people need to..Have to step up if we want a change for our young people. I'm sure in 1862 them Dakota did so atrosities too.. why cuz of the conditions they faced at the time. Sure 38 where hanged but its a general consensues some were innocent.. But yet we honor them at powwows??? How do we know some of these young me aint innocent? Or were just reacting to the conditions they face up on them reservations? We as native people need to teach our young people the right way to interpid our culture and show them the beauty of it and welcome them back into OUR society not shun them away or bannish them as some might suggest.                                   AHO Megwetch Ogema-Wub-Inninii

Michelle, you are a stupid dumb cunt.  My grandparents left Poland after the German and Soviet occupation.  They came to America to find work and attain wealth (which they did). However they attained that wealth by working their asses off and not expecting a fucking handout (like the people who represent YOUR Liberal Party and the joke known as OWS).

I quoted Hitler because his economic theory is the EXACT SAME theory that you scum known as Democrats and OWS believe in.  I will quote it again.  

"We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." --Adolf Hitler

Was this when your cuzn tried breaking into there house? Come on dude he ain't no angel either. But I agree a lot safer with some these guys off the streets. But is it really gonna make a difference up in Cass? Or is our leaders gonna finally do something before another gang take hold up there? More than just the native mob to blame fir our troubles

and why not get the asian gangs off the street as well? theres a hell of a lot more of them in the minneapolis area then the handful of native mob? what about the other gangs? what r you doing to get them off the streets? NOTHING, because once again u wanna bring down the natives! u need to go after the bigger gangs as well and quit arresting only natives!we don't see any other gangs names and pictures in the papers. so if your gonna do it do it fair!!!!!

They all did? I happen to know more than one of these people charged and they have a clean record no juvenile records nite just guilt by association and its true most these guys do just need some cultural influence in they lives will make a whole lot of difference look at the Guy who wrote how Lee staples help turn his life around. Sad part is most these guys need to go to prison to find such a.experience no leaders around here and most reservations.

Ya'll must be Minneapolis natives where not even the elders there know their culture, the kind of elders that expect everything to be given to them and want people to kiss their asses just for being old. Not cool. But there is a place where these young men could have turned to, IF they wanted the help. I know of at least one man who would gladly take in ANYONE who wanted help and wanted to know our ways, and actually has already done so. His name is Lee Staples, most awesome man you'll ever meet, no lie. At least 3 of these young men came from my rez, Mille Lacs, and I believe at least one of the reasons they became involved in gang activity is to prove to either themselves or others that they aren't scared of nobody or nothing. Guys like feeling tough and also knowing that other people will have their backs if anything should go down, which usually happens because people are constantly trying to prove themselves to others, and the easiest way to do that is through violence.

 you can make up any excuse for them, but if you want to better your self you need to keep believeing in self and do whats right! Because if circles turn there backs on them. then all youth would give up but thats not the case. what our you doing to help our youth! please wake up and educate them and not give them outs like you have in your writting posted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So your Dope?

The "Native Mob" are being charged for selling drugs and holding fire arms.  none of them were charged with murder and you are all ignorant for thinking their violent crimes were against white people.  Also what happened to the native americans is not an excuse to start a stupid gang.

Furthermore, Michelle, why don't you take that same 3-foot long, 1-foot wide double-headed dildo that you and your girlfriend use on each other and ram one end up your ass and the other down your fucking mouth so you choke to death on it.  

Fucking scum.  The only thing I agree with Democrats on is the issue of the abortion.  Abortion should be kept legal, so people like you cannot reproduce.  If your mom aborted you, there would be one less stupid Liberal in this country.

Lilduece7600 alot these young men werent in prison...and i agree with what your saying Our circles shouldnt turn there backs on our youth.. But it does happen..maybe not in every case. Why dont we have alternitives for these young people? why dont we have a program set up to help these young people before they reach prison?

 How come The Native Mob can set up a system to recruit kids in almost every reservation to do dirt but we cant to do positive things? Seems with all the resources out there someone will come up with a solution or at least try? wheres the F#CKEN effort? According to this and other articules on this subject theres 200 members... okay 200 minus 24 leaves about 176 members still.. what is our leaders going to do to help them straighten there lifes out?

  What about the kids who aint even in a gang yet... what are we doing for them?? Theres hardly any after school programs...mentering programs...cultural programs out there to take the place of these kids finding a place to fit in?

  like i said in a earlier post we as native people are taught its ok to be a warrior we honor them but yet that were the discussion ends...we dont teach theres a right and a wrong way to be a warrior... Case in point is leech lake... school up there is called the bug school. Named after a man named BUG O NEY GE SHIG we honor this man with a school because he shot and killed fedral troops who were after him because he was selling liquer to his own people.. he was a bootlegger.. so along them lines a hundered years from now are we gonna have a wakiyan mcarthur school??  And all this banishment... hey do you know where we used to send them people who we banished back in the day? To live with the pillengers...Where did the pillengers live? Leech lake.. hmm seems like banishment dont work because a lot of the people in the native mob are pillenger band members..desendants of the people who were banished back in the day..banishment in a sense created the native mob.

yeah we know lee staples very well, he does many ceremonies around fdl community but REFUSES to help ANYONE that in involved w drugs or alcohol, and often hurries with his ceronmony or turns it over to kevin dupuis who was white his whole life and lets him finish so lee can take his money and run rt to the casino and sit there till his nxt appt. where he will take $300 from a poor native who cannot afford it to come out and burn some sage which any of us can do, or send one of his white ( kevin dupuis ) or should say white till he found out there was money involved then became the almighty! this man sickens many of us but because they're are so little left that can speak our native tongue have no other choice to choose lee and his money making crew! anyone with a true native heart would never charge an elder or put a price on doing a ceremony to try to help their people! whatever happened to offering some tobacco and a small gift or even some gas money! but nope! lee staples puts a large price on his services which goes to show what kind of hear he really has! and has turned young people away because they used drugs or alcohol! so no, lee staples is not a true sincere native, we have to go to canada to find help without a price tag on it! just a few bucks for gas and a gift of tobacco and maybe a blanket or so, but lee has a large price list for everything he does, including a room at the casino so he can spend up the money he just made off our elders!

many people cant see the painted propaganda picture for what it really is...i personally seen Lee speak to many of these young warriors while I was doing time with them in rush city prison. He spoke of taking a path that was meant for us...bimadiziwin... I see many of our brothers and sons swallowed up by a way of life few people understand...unless you lived it you wouldnt know! As he spoke he convinced alot of brothers like myself to change the way we were living. These young gentlemen were given the same choice but ignored it. They knew the consequences and now creator is making them pay. Lee spoke of this in a way so that none of us would misunderstand .And he still wouldnt turn his back on them and neither would I because some news article says they are criminals...more light is bieng shined on this thru the media than most other issues. Painting an awful picture to get votes and recognition is so cowardly. And to top it off its just promoting the issue because other young native males see this and think its cool making them want to be in a gang even more so they get the recognition even if its bad...see the picture for what it is and not what they want you to think it is...theres more good native American males than what stories like this really show

This guy "Boob" is a native mob leader that is nothing a wolf in sheeps clothing. He is a problem to the native community and alot of people would like to see this scum dead. if boob and grampa would just get killed the southside would be a better place. iron boy and midnight xpress are nothing but affliates of the native mob. once people recognize that and quit letting em in the pow wows maybe they will go away. boob didnt spend time in federal prison for nothing he was in there for drug dealing.

don't let his smooth talk fool anybody the native mob are evil to the core!

My name is Reuben CrowFeather,Hunkpapa Lakota born and raised at Little Earth,we as a community need to stop blaming and take responsibility for our youth.Tribal Governments in Minnesota have clearly turned their backs on our Inner city Native community.this Saturday our drum group who has been targeted as Native Mob affiliated put on the most historical event in my 36 at the MPLS American Indian Center.with no help from any tribal government,we showed our youth what it is to celebrate life and culture,everyone wants to say something about people when they try.look how Clyde was persecuted.i love my people,would die for my people,would kill for my people,would stay sober for the rest of my life and work for free for my people.before you open your mouth ask yourself what you have done for your people.My number is 952-239-2666 if you know of anyone who needs help,I challenge you to call and help to become part of the solution instead of the problem,it's our own people racial profiling us these days.chi-migetch JLarson for speaking up,one love

The Seventh Prophet was younger than the others who had come and there was a glowing light from his eyes.  He said that there would come a time when the waters had been so poisoned that the animals and plants that lived there would fall sick and begin to die.  Much of the forests and prairies would be gone so the air would begin to lose the power of life.*  The way of the mind brought to the red, black, and yellow nation by the white nation would bring danger to the whole earth.  In this time there will arise Osh-ki-bi-ma-di-zeeg, a new people who will emerge from the clouds of illusion.  They will retrace their steps to find the treasures that had been left by the trail.  The stories that had been lost will be returned to them.  They will remember the Original Instructions and find strength in the way of the circle.  Their search will take them to the elders and the new people will ask for guidance.  But many of the elders will have walked the Path of the Souls to the Star Web.  Many elders will have forgotten their wisdom and they will not be able to help.  Some of the elders will point in the wrong direction and others will remain silent because of their fear.  Some of the elders will be silent because no one has asked them for their wisdom.

 Excuses???? Outs??? I'm just reacting to this articule on banishing my brother. But since you asked.... Hmmm where is all the circles located that you are refering too? Is there a open door policy? Where are they reaching out to our young people at? "Please come back to our spiritial/Traditional circle" You are inviting you are them back... So at one time they was a part of these circles?

 So far I only seen one leader in the Native community step forward with any kind of acknowledgement on this issue. Little Earth President and CEO Bill Ziegler states in the star and tribune that we as in us not just him us as in a people have failed a whole generation of native youth.No others not one has even said anymore but yet this is a problem that should be number one in our community.

  Native youth are forgotten my friend... Idk how much you know about oral history but i want you to hear it from me. There is 7 fires in the Ojibway... Prophecies if you will Edward Benton states that in the time of the 5th fire people will lose there way not knowing there laungage children will be taken from there familys and reeducated..this has happened in the white boarding schools our parents and grandparents attended. In the time of the 7th fire a new people ( or new movement) will come to be and the children will rise up and demand to know theyre culture. But some of the elders will remain silent.. Not helping the new people it becomes hard on the new people.

 Ive heard this many ways and i believe this is happening today these new movements and orginizations of young people could very well be the new people the prophecies talk of... and the elders are turning there backs on these young men shunning them banishing them. You dont think these young men want to claim there indentity as Ojibwa...Dakota.. Ho chunk??? Think again my friend they are starving for it.I know I was one of these youth in the 1990s but i remembered my teachings of bway dway wee dun who taught me these things. I just wish there was more Edward Bentons and Porky Whites out there to teach these and other  young people out there more.

 sam I am I bet your ancestors are really proud of your amazing ability to quote Hitler.  I'm sure they are proud they fled racist murderer Adolf Hitler in 1945 so their loser grandchild could talk like Hitler on the internet. Maybe you should type up your hilarious homosexual fantasies again.  That is in no way creepy or pathetic in a Larry Craig sort of way.

My grandparents came to this country in 1945 from Poland. My ancestors did nothing to their people/land.  You are just a stupid liberal who makes excuses for people who commit violent crime by blaming it on what happened 200 years ago.
