But Not Up Here…

BrownMugShotFortunately for those of us in northern Idaho, all criminal gang activity is restricted to southern Idaho.  (The gangsters promised to stay south of the Benewah and Shoshone County lines.)

Here are links to two Idaho Statesman articles about the Slayers.

Boise Police say busted ‘Slayer’ gang was violent, into guns

Treasure Valley gang cases reveal secrets of Slayers

Cue the chorus:

And here we have Idaho,
Winning her way to fame.
Silver and gold in the sunlight blaze,
And romance lies in her name.


  1. What a shocker…going from looking at a pretty Christmas tree to looking at the face of Mr. Brown. Not funny Bill. :))

    FYI…Local law enforcement has kept photos and other gang information for many years.

  2. LTR,

    Just call him “The Snowman.” 🙂

    Really? (Gasp!) I’m shocked, shocked I tell you, that there is even a suggestion that these poor, misunderstood folks have broken their word and are operating criminal enterprises in north Idaho.

  3. I knew Bill was being sarcastic. But, how bad can the gang/drug activity be in North Idaho? There have been many former policemen who have moved here from Southern California to get away from the problems mentioned in the blog. Mark Furman even moved to Sandpoint briefly.

  4. The stuff is not making the papers – it’s not getting reported. People are still moving or thinking about moving up here to get away from it all. It’s ugly. People are scared. Fear is a great weapon.

    Schools may need armed guards or home school your kids because – it’s that bad.

    … don’t worry tho, this area wants a private prison to take care of it all.

  5. It’s admittedly shallow, but my initial reaction to the article was, “This guy is only 53? He makes me feel much better about turning 60 this next summer!”

  6. kageman,

    We’re at the intersection of the most direct north-south route from southern Idaho to Canada (US 95) and the northernmost east-west route from Seattle to Boston. There’s more than salmon and spuds on those roads.
