The crew we have dubbed the Crappy Cowboy Clan has been back in the news recently due to a September 28th shooting that left one dead and seven injured. The Crappy Cowboy Clan seems to think they are going to make it rich by putting out crappy (c)rap beats. Um, yeah, not so much.
We have done a number of stories on the Cowboys here at CTL. You can find them by hitting the search box.
The dead individual has been identified as Elijah Jerome Mikel, aka “Wildboi Black“. Mikel seems to have had a minimal criminal history in Colleton County consisting mainly of traffic charges, a conviction for possession of marijuana and a magistrate level conviction for discharging a firearm in the city limits. His social media feed is lacking much of what we usually find with those involved in illicit or gang activities, but it could have been cleaned since his death. His connection to the Crappy Cowboys is unclear at this time. According to the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office this shooting was not the result of a conflict between rival gangs. Was it internal? It wouldn’t be the first time we have seen gang members from the same crew shooting at each other. “Wildboi Black” is on the friends list of Cowboy gang leader Khiry Broughton. You can read about Broughton’s criminal history HERE.
As for the others who were injured in the apparent shootout, some were initially identified by The Colletonian as 19 year old Keandre Frazier, 19 year old Bryant Davis, 20 year old Shontoni Brown, 20 year old Deandre McKel and an unnamed 16 year old. At this point we are not sure how accurate that information is because other news reports indicated some folks lied about the incident (no surprise there) and provided police with false names.
As a result of that false information warrants for obstruction of justice were issued for Khiry Broughton, said to be the leader of the Crappy Cowboys, Zaquann Hampton, Kadeem Singleton, Matthew Jones, Leviticus Ford and the unnamed 16 year old. As far as we can tell from the miserable access to public records in Colleton County all of these individuals have been rounded up, the warrants were served and they have been released on bond to once again roam the quaint highways and bi-ways of Colleton County. We can’t give you bond information because the Colleton County Clerk of Court doesn’t update the case database too frequently.
We have learned the reach of this particular
gang neighborhood social club with a mutual interest in shooting people, and which hails from Colleton County, is rather broad. It is said to extend to Atlanta, which is the source of money and other things flowing to the gang in Colleton County. How do you think these guys are able to pay all the bonds they have been accruing lately? The gang also reaches into Summerville and the eastside of Charleston.
We thought we would run through an updated list of some of the gang members. We will go until we get tired, so this might take a while to read. This information was compiled from a variety of resources - social media, public records, news reports and even with the help of some folks in the area who are sick and tired of bullets flying through their neighborhoods. They wanted the Crappy Cowboys to know that.
Let’s start with a member who was shot as a result of his activities and is now confined to a wheelchair. His name is Darryl L. Allen but he goes by “Brittle Bank Youngin“, formerly “Cartel Breeze” on Thugbook.
We weren’t able to find any news reports relative to the shooting which put Allen in the wheelchair, but we believe it happened prior to 2012. In the photos below Allen shows off his sawed-off and a baby blaster. We didn’t find a criminal history for him. In light of that he is technically allowed to own firearms, assuming he meets the age requirements. We think the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives might have something to say about that sawed-off, though.
As you can see, Allen didn’t learn anything when he was crippled as a result of gunfire. He’s pissed about his homeboys getting ventilated and wants revenge. Will we hear about a “roll-by” shooting with the suspect furiously pushing himself away from the scene some time in the near future?
The comments attached the photo above are rather interesting. First, you see Allen using the term “rcs” which we know stands for “real cowboy shit”. Second, he admits to rolling around armed with that sawed-off. Third, we like how Sharelle recommends Allen go shoot up the funeral. Apparently, she is talking about the funeral of Elijah Mikel.
Allen is a self-proclaimed member of a very violent gang of thugs and revels in it, yet he wants to bitch and moan when he gets called about the very same activities he and his fellow gang members consistently engage in. He then gets all weepy about people hating the gang. Well, gee, Darryl, what did you expect? You took our sleepy little town of Walterboro and the surrounding area and turned it into a shooting gallery. You have even exported your violence to other areas like Dorchester County, Charleston, and - some sources have told us - even to block parties in Berkeley County.
In this post Allen puts the lie to the claim the shootout was not the result of rival gangs clashing.
Disrespect the Crappy Cowboys and they will take you into the woods and hang you. Um, what did that black man just say? Lynching, not just for the KKK anymore.
Here is another view of Allen’s .380 pistol. Note his reaction in the comments when someone wants to buy it.
When we last checked in with Darryl Allen he had left this little nugget on his wall:
Yeah, Darryl. That “situation” would be crippled, in a wheelchair.
Allen provides us with a photo of fellow gang member Raekwon Daye and his firearm.
That photo posted August 7th is not a recent one. Daye, aka “Reakwon So’icey Cowboy” and “Snow OnThe Bank“, is currently behind bars at the Wateree Correctional Institution. He was arrested on charges of 3rd Degree Burglary and Possession of a Stolen Pistol. In exchange for a guilty plea to the burglary charge the 14 Circuit Solicitor dismissed that pesky firearms charge. Daye was sentenced by Judge Brooks Goldsmith to a YOA term not to exceed five years. As you can see from his projected parole eligibility, Daye probably won’t serve any significant amount of time behind bars.
Daye has been locked up a couple of times before as a juvenile.
Allen also provides us with a photo of fellow gang member Zaquann Hampton with his firearm nearby. Zaquann goes by the name “Tob Be OnIt“.
While we were working on this story, Zaquann posted an interesting group photo. These gang members certainly don’t mind showing off the artillery.
We talked about Zaquann Hampton in our previous post about this shooting/murder. It appears he is one of the seven wounded in the shootout.
Zaquann wants us to know the Crappy Cowboys will “kill for nothin”.
Zaquann also tells us someone tried to setup his gang and this led to the shootout. More evidence the “no rival gang” theory doesn’t really make sense.
We previously addressed the comments by Zaquann’s mother, Shameka Hampton, who cautioned him to keep silent. Yes, folks, there is a class of parent out there who condone and even benefit monetarily from the illegal activities of their kids. Shameka doubled down on her warning to Zaquann even as he threatened revenge against those who shot him. Did she counsel him that gang activity, crime and revenge were tickets to prison or the grave? Nah, she just told him not to publicly threaten to kill people. Gang leader Khiry Broughton, aka “KBlacka“, seconds that recommendation.
Zaquann wonders why the cops want to lock him and his homies behind bars.
Oh, wait, Zaquann was shot in the back? Was he running away like a bitch? Probably. Real cowboy shit, right there.
Let’s review Zaquann’s criminal history before we move on.
2011 Charges (Dorchester County):
Possession of a Stolen Pistol - Dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor.
Possession of a Stolen Pistol - Reduced to Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol by the 1st Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced by Judge Edgar Dickson to YOA term not to exceed 1 year, suspended in favor of 2 years of probation.
2012 Charges (Dorchester County):
Attempted Murder - Dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor.
In this incident, Zaquann and two other Cowboy gang members shot someone in the head and the arm in Summerville. Charges against all three were later dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor.
Zaquann’s brother Clyde Hampton is also in the gang. You can find him under the pseudonym “OneLoyal Shoota“. He pledges his loyalty and his love to leader Khiry Broughton. No homo, though. Well, that’s just an assumption on our part.
Clyde has a bit of a criminal history.
2009 Charges (Dorchester County)”
Lynching - Dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor.
2011 Charges (Dorchester County):
Attempted Murder - Reduced to 1st Degree Assault & Battery by the 1st Circuit Solicitor. Sentenced by Judge Edgar Dickson to a YOA term not to exceed 5 years.
Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime - Dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor.
Possession of a Stolen Pistol - Plead guilty. Same sentence as above, concurrent.
2014 Charges (Colleton County):
This one is kind of curious. Clyde Hampton was charged in January with Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. It looks the charge was initially dismissed at the preliminary hearing, then he was indicted, then the 14th Circuit Solicitor dismissed the charge again with the note “not indicted”, although you can very clearly see an indictment number listed there.
The next self-professed Cowboy on our list is Leviticus Ford. He goes by the name “Crown Vick“. He was charged in 2013 with Possession of a Stolen Pistol and Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. He was indicted on those charges yet the 14th Circuit Solicitor dismissed the charges less than five months after Ford was arrested.
Anyone else on board with the theory that the 14th Circuit Solicitor doesn’t believe in prosecuting violations of South Carolina’s weapons laws?
Ford loves his guns, his weed and his homeboys.
Hmmm…that guy in the wheelchair with the gun looks a bit familiar.
Ford sums up what the gang is all about in this next post. He misses the obvious irony that the “maniacshitcowboylifeshootingmothafuckas” is exactly what sentenced his pal Darryl Allen to that wheelchair.
Kareem Risher also publicly claims membership in the Crappy Cowboy Clan. He goes by the name “Cowboy Gunna” on Thugbook. Here is a picture of Risher from a few days before the latest shooting incident.
It looks like he hasn’t learned anything from getting arrested. Risher is currently free on bond on pending charges from 2013. He was charged in December with Failure to Stop for Blue Lights, Pointing and Presenting a Firearm and Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. He was released on a total bond of $55,000.
While Risher was free on bond on the above charges he was arrested again in June 2014 on another charge of Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol. Judge Gadsden, the very same judge who issued the previous bonds, set bond on this latest weapons charge at just $1,000. Maybe the Judge realized the 14th Circuit Solicitor will probably just dismiss it anyway.
There is one little tidbit about that December 2013 arrest we left out and most folks are not aware of. Risher tried to ram at least one police cruiser during that chase. After the vehicle pursuit Risher thought it would be wise to point a gun at a Colleton County deputy while running away on foot. That deputy then engaged in a little activity we here at CTL like to call “lighting him the f*** up”! Risher was shot three times in the ass.
Admit it. You just laughed out loud! He certainly didn’t look happy in his booking photo. He was probably puzzled over which hole to offer his cellmate.
In light of the above information, that bond set by Judge Gadsden on that second firearm charge is even more ridiculous and outrageous.
Oshalum Grant is another self-professed gang member who is currently behind bars. You can find his Thugbook page under the name “Osh Bdahitman Grant”.
Grant was charged with 1st Degree Burglary in April. He was given a $3,000 bond by Judge Goldsmith and promptly bonded out. He was arrested again in August and charged with 3rd Degree Assault & Battery by Mob and was given a $15,000 bond by Judge Gadsden. Grant hasn’t made that bond yet. Seems like the Cowboys had more important things to do with their money than help out a brother who spends his social media time telling everyone how the Cowboys shoot indiscriminately and don’t care who they hit.
What did we tell you? They don’t care who gets hit. Mothers, kids, doesn’t matter.
Those arrests above were just Grant’s first adult arrests. He didn’t mind letting us know he’s been locked up as a juvenile, too.
In February we profiled two members of the gang arrested for a drive-by shooting after they led police on a vehicle pursuit. One of those was “Tyrone Choice“. We detailed Choice’s criminal history and found he was another beneficiary of the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s reluctance to prosecute firearms charges.
In fact, when Choice was charged in February with four counts of Attempted Murder, one count of Possession of a Firearm During a Violent Crime and one count of Unlawful Carrying of a Firearm he was out on bond for a 2013 charge of Unlawful Carrying of a Firearm. No bond was granted on the four attempted murder charges. A total of $10,000 bond was set on the firearms charges.
Notice how these morons are always mentioning and thinking about their right hands? I guess they get to know those hands fairly well during those long, lonely nights in lock-down.
Choice was not the only one arrested that night in February. A fellow gang member by the name of Qwinton Brown was also charged with those same six offenses and given the same bond amounts. He was also out on bond at the time of the drive-by shooting. You can find him on Thugbook under the name “Gucci PlugTawkin Brown“.
Gotta have the jail photo or you just aren’t gangsta enough.
Let’s review Brown’s criminal history.
1st Degree Burglary - Dismissed by the 14th Circuit Solicitor with the notation “not indicted”. Do you see see an indictment number listed there? We do.
PWID Marijuana - Dismissed by the 14th Circuit Solicitor with the notation “not indicted”. Gee, what is that pesky number that keeps showing up those boxes labeled “Indictment Number”?
Two counts of 3rd Degree Assault & Battery by Mob - was free on a $5,000 bond on each charge.
In addition to the four counts of attempted murder and the two weapons charges Brown picked up in February, he was charged in August with another count of 3rd Degree Assault & Battery by Mob for an assault in the Colleton County Detention Center. His bond was at $25,000 on that charge.
Qwintin blames the cops for protecting the citizens of Colleton County against his gang of mouth-breathing morons and wants to go to war with them. He had his chance when he wrecked his car running from the police, but chose to run like a chickenshit instead. He must have had a flashback to the three new holes the cops put in fellow gang member Kareem Risher’s ass last December.
The next Crappy Cowboy is Jylin Daquan Ford, formerly known as “GuttaMan Ford”, now known as “JayBird CMG” on Thugbook.
Let’s review Ford’s criminal history in Colleton County.
Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol - Plead guilty. Sentenced to 1 year, suspended in favor of 1 year of probation.
Possession of a Stolen Pistol - Dismissed by the 14th Circuit Solicitor with the usual notation “Not indicted”, yet there is another of of those pesky indictment numbers.
At least the citizens of Colleton County can rest in the knowledge that the 14th Circuit Solicitor treats crimes against law enforcement officers and the Sheriff’s Office in the same slack manner it treats crimes against regular folks. You see, that handgun was Ford was caught with was owned by the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office and had been stolen from a deputy.
Two counts of 3rd Degree Assault & Battery by Mob - Plead guilty. Sentenced by Judge Maite Murphy to 1 year, suspended in favor of two years of probation.
We must be mistaken. We thought associating with known gang members and felons is prohibited while on probation. Our bad.
Another gang member currently in jail awaiting trial is Dashawn Brown. His Thugbook page was reactivated at “Young Dose“. We detailed his Colleton County criminal history after he murdered Sierra Truesdale at a club in Dorchester County in 2013. We missed his pending charges in Dorchester County when we did that article. He was out on bond at the time he murdered Truesdale.
2012 Charges (Dorchester County):
Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol - Was free on a $1,000 bond set by Judge Boatwright.
2nd Offense Marijuana Possession - Was free on a $1,000 bond.
Dashawn Brown is also currently awaiting trial on one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder. He was also charged in April of 2014 with Possession of Contraband in a County Prison.
He wants you to know just what he thinks of all his charges. Maybe the 14th Circuit Solicitor can show this photo to the jury.
Tayron Latrell Ford also proudly proclaims his membership in the Crappy Cowboys gang. You can find him using the Thugbook name “Gmc T-mac“. Ford was shot in 2010. An innocent young girl in a nearby home was also wounded in the barrage. She was shot in the head. Ford was “uncooperative” with authorities trying to find out who tried to kill him and shot a kid in the process. That should tell you all you need to know about this dirtbag. Seriously, what else can you say about a guy who still has a MySpace page and the best photos he has of himself to put on that page are his mugshots?
Let’s look at his criminal history.
Someone at the Colleton Clerk’s office hosed up this record, so was aren’t exactly sure of what Ford was convicted of. Suffice it to say he plead guilty to three drug charges and was given two YOA sentences not to exceed five years, one one not to exceed six years and all were suspended in favor of 3 years probation.
Trafficking Marijuana, PWID Narcotics and PWID Near a School - Dismissed at preliminary hearing.
Failure to Stop for Blue Lights - Plead guilty. Sentenced to pay a $500 fine.
Well, that’s all of the Crappy Cowboy Clan we can stomach for today. Rest assured, there will be more to come in the future. Many things to those citizens who have reached out to us about this group of criminals and helped identify them. These are not all of the Crappy Cowboys. There are plenty more out there. We will get to them eventually.
