As it turns out, there is an easy way to beat Vado rappers.
The technique was pioneered by the Vado gang, a gang from the Bronx that is accused of kidnapping, killing and raping women.
The gang has been accused of being a “criminal enterprise,” but a federal judge said last month that there was no evidence the gang had any “criminal element.”
“In the eyes of the government, there’s not enough evidence to prove the gang was a criminal enterprise,” said U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan in his order last month.
The judge also found the gang used “vast amounts of money” to recruit women and to maintain a network of prostitutes and sex workers in New York City.
Sullivan’s order was widely criticized by feminists and others, including rapper Drake, who was among those calling for a crackdown on the gang.
“The government has not been able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Vados gang operated a criminal activity,” Drake told The Washington Post.
“They are a gang, they have money, they do bad things, and they are a criminal organization.”
In February, The New York Times reported that police investigators were investigating Vado’s connections to the alleged gangster, and prosecutors said they were looking into whether the gang members had ever been charged with a crime.
“A criminal enterprise, if that’s what it is, then that’s a criminal entity,” U.N. special rapporteur on violence and gender, Anne Glover, told the newspaper.
The Times said that the gang, which was founded in the mid-1980s and is still in the Bronx, used sex trafficking to fund itself.
The newspaper reported that prosecutors in the Brooklyn district office “have spent years investigating a wide array of organized crime figures and others suspected of crimes involving prostitution and human trafficking.”
“This is not an issue of one gang,” Glover said.
“It’s an issue that needs to be addressed across the city.”
The gang’s involvement with the sex trade was well known in the New York area, Glover said, and the gang also used sex workers to get the money they needed to operate.
“There is no evidence that the victims of this violence were forced into prostitution,” Glover wrote.
“Nor is there any evidence that any of the women were subjected to rape or abuse.”
According to Glover, the gang “wanted to maintain its power, and women as prostitutes are the only way to do so.”
