The Original Blood Gang:The angels and demons were fighting on my shoulder, and my head was just exploding

08:39 |

"The angels and demons were fighting on my shoulder, and my head was just exploding," the man said. His mother came into his room and asked him what was wrong, and he blurted out: "I did something very bad," he said. "I joined a gang, and they want me to kill someone."

"Oh my God," his mother replied, the man testified.

He told his mother he didn't want the police involved, and that he just wanted to "go away" and live with relatives in Florida. But he said his mother got in touch with a friend who worked as a Newport News sheriff's deputy, and he was soon telling all to police.

A female gang member witness testified Wednesday that after not seeing that male gang-member around for a few days, Broward hung a black bandana outside that man's door knob, indicating he should be killed.

Broward, now on trial in Newport News Circuit Court, faces three counts of murder conspiracy and 21 other charges pertaining to gangs, guns and drugs. None of the three killings he's accused of ordering was ever carried out.

According to prosecution witnesses, Broward, accused of being the leader of a gang called "The Original Blood Gang," wanted the three men dead because he thought they had broken into an apartment that he and other gang members shared — while the gang members were at church — and stole $200.

The female gang member testified that though she was then dating another female gang member, Broward would force her to have sex with him, sometimes in front of her partner.

She said Broward would beat her and other members for not following obscure rules, and would require them to play Russian roulette. But she said gang members had planned among themselves to aim the gun over the top of each other's heads, so any bullet fired in the roulette would only "skim" atop their scalp. The gun never fired during the roulette, she said.

Broward refused to attend part of the trial for a couple of hours Wednesday, staying in a holding cell after a recess in the proceedings. Broward's attorney, Jim Ellenson, said his client "believes he's being railroaded."
