GANGS have joined forces with Chicago authorities to push rioters out — offering to ‘take the heat for the beat’ if things take a turn for the worse, Your Content has learned.

It’s confirmed that the gang shot at several trespassers, striking at-least three.

The Latin Kings — dubbed the largest Hispanic street gang in the United States —  journeyed to Humboldt Park to lock down several neighborhoods. The gang was formed there sometime in 1950.

“3 people shot,” the community announced. “Kings v. Looters and the Kings are still there. Looters left cause they ain’t from here!”

Police responded to the community to find the Kings patrolling and cuffing any rioter. Any armed rioter was shot and arrested by the gang.

“Yes. In Chicago, the Mayor won’t call in the national guard so the Latin Kings — a violent street gang — are protecting the streets!” a local tweeted overnight.

“The Second Amendment has NEVER been more important.”

LIFETIME Latin Kings member, Joshua Atfair, tells Your Content that the gang didn’t target anybody – focusing their citizens arrests on looters who refused to leave or became violent.

“Look, I’m a Latin King from Little Village,” Atfair told Your Content. “We didn’t target NO ONE. We only attacked looters because Latin Kings own the businesses on 26th Street. As far as the rest of Chicago, I don’t know.”

“I was out there and no Latin Kings targeted any black people. We only beat up looters. I speak for all the Kings when I say #BlackLivesMatter.

“But keep that looting shit out that way.”

The gang is friendly with People Nation and Sinaloa Cartel.

“We will do what we will do to keep the area safe,” declared the gang. “We warn the protester, then we take the protester by the arm to escort them out. If they argue, we will shoot for trespassing.”

“Can’t believe we’re saying this but we have to give credit where it’s due,” the Chicago community wrote in a statement.

“Side note, thanks to CPD cause they’re right there with them. Funny who comes together during these times.”

People quickly took to social media to alert others to go indoors.

“If you’re a black man that lives in Pislen or Little Village PLEASE STAY INDOORS!” said Bera.

“Latin Kings are attacking us and it seems CPD are allowing it. I was almost jumped myself!”

Illinois is one of five states in the U.S. – along with California, Florida, New York, and South Carolina, plus the District of Colombia – that do not allow open carry. 

“They will take the heat for the beat,” a corner store owner in the Little Village section of the city told Your Content. “Do not come here and expect to loot. We will shoot you.”

The US has been rocked by six straight nights of tumult since George Floyd, a black man, was killed in Minneapolis after a white police officer pinned him to the ground by kneeling on his neck last Monday.  

Floyd, who was in handcuffs at the time, died after the white officer ignored bystander shouts to get off him and Floyd’s cries that he couldn’t breathe. 

His death, captured on citizen video, has sparked days of protests in Minneapolis that quickly spread to cities across America.  

Trump told reporters his administration is ‘fully committed’ to serving justice for George Floyd, but said he believed the looters and violent protests are distracting from that goal.
