It makes me nervous to speak on this since someone attempted to kill him.
While there are pieces he left out, he was involved in operations to get U.S guns into Mexican cartels hands. Their reasoning was so the U.S.
government could find who exactly was taking these guns and relay the info to the mexican government. The reason was to find which people were
running the cartel and flowing drugs into the U.S. way before the actual War on Drugs
My dad did find it wrong and decided to leave his work. His last week, that attempt happened.
By the way, I know there is someone who by now thinks that I am full of it. I am only speaking the truth and you all have my word thats what this is.
I totally believe you as Los Angeles was a "melting pot" (still is) of Extreme Illegal Drug and Weapons activities back in the 80's by just about all
of the alphabet agencies including the US Military. Your Dad may have been involved with Ricky Donnell Ross aka "Freeway Rick" who was a huge drug
dealer back in the 80's in South Central Los Angeles, and when I say a huge drug dealer I'm mean HUGE...think in terms of Noriega. Don't get Ricky D.
Ross confused with the rapper Rick Ross, who actually adapted that stage name from Ricky D. Ross aka Freeway Rick.
The Feds ended uplocking Rick up...but only after he assisted them in distributing incredible incredible amounts of drugs and weapons (this is where
the military came in) onto the streets of Los Angeles that eventually made their way across the nation. Ricky Ross was a huge part of the Iran Contra
Scandal. So when the SHTF, for the CIA/DEA/Feds they "terminated" Rick's position by supposedly setting Freeway Rick up. Even after he had been
sentenced to life in prison, they let Ross out of jail only to turn around and set him up once again after he failed to "work" for them yet once
again. Ricky Ross, made an attempt to start over clean by opening several community based centers for the youth amongst other non-profit organizations
in an attempt to give back to the community he assisted in destroying, but the Feds weren't having it, so they set him up again and tossed him back in
prison. Yet he is out of prison again. Ironic how one gets sentenced to life in prison then let out, twice...lol!
I'm pretty sure your dad knows exactly
who this man is and he was probably part of a bigger picture that had not fully been painted at
that time. Mention the name to him and take note of the look on his face afterwards.That's all I'm going to say about this.
How do I know this some of you ask? Besides the fact that anyone can find some of this info on the web, I personally know Ricky Ross aka "Freeway"
Like I said, I'm not saying anymore.
S~n~F OP and Stars to you Stereotype for sharing your story.
If I were you, I wouldn't say anything else about your Dad's involvement with Los Angeles, even if you find out new details. Keep it to
, do not put anything you find out about his involvement on ATS nor speak about it to ayone else...trust me
I thought I would add a link to some "public info", and believe you me, this Wiki article is one that you can trust:
Ricky D. Ross
