In a video that has quickly gone viral, Louisiana Police Captain Clay Higgins issued a serious warning to members of the “Gremlin Gang.”
The footage shows Higgins backed by a group of law enforcement officers and community officials. He tells the gang members that they are being hunted for armed robbery and murder.
Higgins then addresses one of the gang members specifically by name, looking dead into the camera.
“Darren Carter, you think men like these are afraid of an uneducated, 125 pound punk like you, that’s never won a fair fight in your life and holds your gun sideways?” Higgins asks. “Young man, I’ll meet you on solid group anytime, light or heavy, makes no difference to me. You won’t walk away.”
“Look at you!” Higgins continues. “Men like us, son, we do dumbbell presses with weights bigger than you.”
Higgins then encourages members of the community to stand up and take a stand.
“And for those who will use this message to create false racial division in our country, take a close look behind me,” Higgins concludes. “Standing next to every cop is a leader of our black community. This is not about race, it’s about right versus wrong.”
