Girl Gang Called the ‘Bad Barbies’ on Loose in the Bronx

There’s a new gang in town—a sinister group of hellions wreaking havoc across The Bronx. And the wildest part is they’re women who call themselves the “Bad Barbies.”

Authorities say the dangerous dames were discovered during a major crackdown of Hispanic gangbangers by the feds and the NYPD. They’re an offshoot of the murderous Trinitarios.

“When this case started last year, we were not surprised that the Trinitarios were up to no good in The Bronx—but the Bad Barbies? Who knew?” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said. “Apparently, it is a sign that gender is no bar when it comes to crimes of robbery and murder and other serious offenses.”

The alleged leader of the Bad Barbies, short and busty Maria Mejia of The Bronx, was charged yesterday with crimes including murder, racketeering and assault.

Mejia, 24, is accused of “luring a robbery victim to the front of a Mexican bar where he was shot,” but not fatally, in June of last year, Kelly said.

Her murder charge—which carries the death penalty—involves the 2005 death of Miguel Perez, 20, who a police source said was killed as revenge for the earlier slaying of a Trinitarios member, Gil Lanier, by the Dominicans Don’t Play gang.

But her court-appointed lawyer, Ed Wilford, described her as a “homemaker” who cares for her ailing mom and said it was “inappropriate for law enforcement to castigate people charged with capital crimes by using loose language.”

Kelly said there are up to 100 female gang members aligned with the Trinitarios “at any given time,” and that “men and women alike” routinely engage in violence against rival gangs.

Yesterday’s Manhattan federal court indictment added Mejia and 25 others to a case originally filed last December against 14 alleged Trinitarios.

    Maybe Time Magazine can add Maria Mejia’s name to their list of “Thing Of The Year.”
    (Time is not allowed to say “Man Of The Year”. That would be a horrible leftist faux pax.)

    Dominicans.

    Why we have MILLIONS of Dominicans in every major and minor city from Florida to New York is a mystery for which I have no answer. Ditto Puerto Ricans and Haitians. How did this nightmare happen?
    We know why there’s so many Mexicans (share a land border) and we know why there’s so many Cubans (stupid free citizenship policy) but how do so many MILLIONS of people from those three islands get EVERYWHERE.
    Where I’m at, all I see is Dominicans EVERY DAY. They are so numerous that it must be seen to be believed. Whole sections of the city are now an extension of Dominican Republic…and I live in the NORTH of the country!
    The only way I will ever respect Republicans again is if they call for and implement an immediate moratorium on all legal immigration for the foreseeable future, and then campaign to deport all illegals and revoke citizenship for all children of illegals.

      If you live in Washington Heights, and I were you, I’d move. Before you wind up dead. I kid you not. It’s just as bad as the South Bronx (and a ton of other hoods).

      Btw, until the late ’60s, Wash. Hghts. (like every other neighborhood in the boroughs) was European white. Then the Doms. moved in.

      Btw, Puerto Ricans came here from the early ’50s onwards b/c of the gov’t's policy and ‘relationship’ with P.R.

      Haitians (and every other 3rd world country) came here b/c of the Immigration Act of 1965, brought to you by Ted “I can kill women and get away with it” Kennedy.

        They’re more pleasant than American Blacks

          Not the ones I’ve met. The Haitians I’ve met are slightly less savage than Somalians.

            A man from the Dominican Republic is now my neighbor. My radar went up when I heard he was moving next door to me. I don’t want to find out whether he’s ‘more pleasant’ than blacks. In fact, knowing about their machismo, I don’t want to mix with him at all.

      Wouldn’t Archie Bunker have a field day with what’s happened to this country now?

        Archie Bunker was right.

          Still is.

      We need them here, America is a land of immigrants, they bring diverse skills and abilities that Americans don’t possess. They do the jobs Americans won’t do. Immigrants help stimulate the economy and enrich or lives. OOPS..sorry, I was reading off Obama’s teleprompter.

    Hispanic female gangsters are nothing new. Check out the “Black Widow” Griselda Blanco, one of the most feared Cocaine drug lords of the Medellin Cartel. She operated with impunity in Miami and later from a prison in CA. It’s crazy, even the non white females are insanely dangerous and violent.

      She was beautiful though… the one that runs the Pacifica gang? Super hot Latina…

  • The__Bobster

    Barbies are tall, blonde and thin. These are “Bad Beanesses”.

  • i am

    “Bad Barbies.”

    A bunch of tall skinny large breasted blond haired girls from Sweden, Norway, and Iceland no doubt

  • Angry White Woman

    Bad–no arguement about that. Barbies–they can only wish.

  • IKantunderstand

    My advice to law enforcement : Please allow all criminal gangs of color to kill each other. Only come down on them when their violent criminality reaches other (White) law abiding people.

  • Kronolog

    Not very ladylike.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    The only pity here is that they haven’t been killing wealthy Irish Catholics from the infamous Massachusetts rum-running family that allowed Dominicans into our country in the first place.
