NJ Gang Banger Gets Three Decades In The Slammer

He goes by the names “B.G.,” “T-Bird” and “Reek Boy,” but for the next 30 years Torien Brooks will be known as a prisoner of the State of New Jersey.

Torien Brooks (NJ Dept. of Corrections) U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman says Brooks, a leader in the Fruit Town and Brick City Brims set of the Bloods street gang, was sentenced today to 362 months in prison for murdering an innocent teenager in a case of mistaken identity, kidnapping a rival gang member and conspiring to distribute narcotics as part of a racketeering conspiracy.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court Brooks admits he was responsible for a 2004, murder in Jersey City. Brooks says that along with co-defendant Emmanuel Jones, he shot and killed a person they believed was responsible for an earlier shooting of a fellow gang member, but was actually an innocent teenager identified in court documents as “M.T.” Three other bystanders were hit by stray bullets during the incident.

Brooks also admits that he conspired to kidnap a rival gang member, identified in court documents as “M.M.” Brooks says the plan arose out of a disagreement he had with M.M. after M.M. changed Bloods sets without receiving permission. On April 11, 2005, four gang members kidnapped and pistol-whipped M.M., eventually taking him to the Paterson Falls to murder him. As the gang members exited the car, M.M. was able to escape and run down the street, saving his life.
