LOS ANGELES — Ellisa Burks-McKnight talks about the history of a community organization in the 1970s called the “Rollin Avenues,” started by her mother in 1968 on 3rd Avenue & Slauson and how they later were connected to the Rollin 60s Crips.

She confirms one of the craziest incidents in Monster Kody’s autobiography.

    YOU SHOULD CROSS REFERRENCE RHE PEOPLE YOU INTERVIEW BRO….CAN’T BELIEVE UNLESS YOU VERIFY…

    J Blade got twisted by his baby mother’s mom. They buried his body in their back yard and when it began decomposing she put his body in a garbage bag and dumped it on the tracks. He didn’t even get ki*led by no gang stuff. JBlade was Lil C Dog and Lil Snoop (RIP) brother.

    The lady talks about the chopping incident like the victim was ki*led.
    The Monster book suggests that he was only mutilated (page 73, end of chapter 3).

    quote :
    “They seized him, beat him into submission, and chopped off both his arms at the elbow with machetes. One arm was taken, and one arm was discarded down the street. Later that night we parried and had a good time. The arm that was taken was brought to the meeting as proof of completion. There were no further kidnappings and our war plodded on in an “ordinary” fashion after this. During the ensuing investigation, the police department’s frustration arose not as a result of the act per se, but from their inability to find the victim’s other limb. We learned from this that there was a deterrent to certain acts. We had quite
    possibly laid down a rule then that certain things just
    wouldn’t be tolerated.”

    The Arm Chopping incident never happen period.

    No member of the Rollin 60s is walking around with No Arms. This US Fiction.

    J Blade was ki*led in Madden and his Body was dumped on the Hyde Park Train Tracks.

    This Lady is delusional, maybe from years of drug use….

    To be honest ….I thought the crying seemed kind of fake.to have that reaction to a 20 plus year old incident and that wasn’t your father or son..
    I can’t see it…good acting though…lol . I’ll give her credit for how she related the bible quote to what’s going on in the streets.Its funny that Alex put this out cuz he already debunked that incident.
