CPD Fears Revenge Killings After Assassination Of Black Disciples Gang Leader

Chicago street legend Lawrence “Big Law” Loggins was shot and killed during a shooting that left one more guy wounded on the city's southside.

Chicago Police are bracing for a pootential bloodbath after Loggin's murder, he was arrested back in 1989 for murder, and was released back in 2019.

lil Durk took to twitter to send his preyers to the family of Loggins writing “RIP Big Law” on his timeline following his death.

The Lamron faction’s gang territory runs along Normal Avenue from 59th to 67th Streets in Englewood. Lamron is Normal spelled backwards.

The rapper Chief Keef, who’s associated with the Black Disciples, has popularized the Lamron faction by mentioning it in his music.

The Black Disciples were founded in the 1960s under the leadership of David Barksdale. Jerome “Shorty” Freeman was crowned the king of the Black Disciples in 1974 after Barksdale’s death.

Freeman went to prison in 1990 on a drug conviction and Marvel Thompson became the de facto leader of the Black Disciples on the streets until the FBI arrested him in a sweeping drug conspiracy case in 2004.

The feds said Thompson ran a politically connected, hierarchical and sophisticated operation. His drug workers would tune in to a Christian radio frequency that Thompson pirated, according to the FBI. He used the radio frequency to warn his workers about police activity.

Thompson raked in millions of dollars through mortgage-fraud schemes, as well as drug dealing, according to the feds.

Under Thompson, the gang had connections in the business and political worlds. One of his top lieutenants, Donnell Jehan, even dated a Chicago alderman, Arenda Troutman, who later went to prison for corruption.

Thompson and his lieutenants went to prison in the federal case in 2005.

That same year, Freeman got out of prison. He claimed he no longer was involved in the gang, though the police didn’t believe it. Freeman died of natural causes in 2012.
