Residents upset over violent video portraying life in Gardere
BATON ROUGE- Another video featuring the street life in Baton Rouge surfaced on the internet over the weekend. It claims to portray life in "Gardere."
"This is a Glock," a man in the video said. "I got 30 in this (expletive). I ain't playing."
The video shows several people flashing high-powered weapons.
"This here is a littly bitty (expletive). It's a special-made Desert Eagle for (expletives)."
People who live in Gardere called the video disturbing.
"It's scary, really scary and very frightening," a Gardere resident said.
The video is similar to "Thuggin it and Lovin it." That video was released nearly three years ago and claimed to showcase the streets of Baton Rouge. It showed people flashing guns, waving what appeared to be drugs and showing off cash. Law enforcement tracked down people in the video, but no arrests were made for the creation of it.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said it is investigating the video that began making rounds over the weekend. Deputies are trying to identify the people in the video.
"It's life. People got to live it. They gonna get hurt one day and probably get killed, but it is what it is," a man named Black said.
"I just want to see them off the streets," neighbor Desmond said. "The guns and violence have to stop."
