Compton Tries To Kick Out Suge Knight

Posted By on January 24, 2008

The city of Compton, CA is trying to kick Suge Knight out. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the City Of Compton filed an injunction with a L.A. Judge that would make it illegal for members of the Mob Piru street gang—including Death Row CEO Suge Knight—to congregate in a northeast section of the city. Suge replied by saying “This is crazy,” “I’m a 42-year-old businessman, not a gang member. I don’t even live in Compton anymore . . . . This injunction names people who are already in jail — and at least one guy who is long dead.”

If granted by the judge, it would create a “safety zone” bounded by Bullis Road on the west, Pine Street on the north, Thorson Avenue on the east and Rosecrans Ave. on the south and would prevent an estimated 200 gang members from congregating, carrying guns, using gang signs, creating graffiti, fighting, drinking alcohol or staying on the street past 10 p.m.
