Biggest Gang Wins...Now Go.

You know it means no mercy
They caught him with a gun
No need for the Black Maria
Goodbye to the Brixton sun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
Yes, even shoot us
But oh-the guns of Brixton

Just after I say that Lebanon is a good candidate for a liberal democratic society within the Middle East, it starts acting like a not so democratic Compton:

Marine's family, rival Lebanese clan in battle
Two die in gunfight

TRIPOLI, Lebanon (AP) — Two people were killed today in a gun battle between members of the clan of U.S. marine Wassef Ali Hassoun and people who taunted as being American collaborators, Lebanese security and hospital officials said.

The shooting took place in a separate part of this northern Lebanese city to the district where the family of Cpl. Hassoun lives.

The casualties were not members of the Hassoun clan, which numbers over 1,000 people, officials said, speaking on customary condition of anonymity
