[Ed. – Still here and deadly as ever.]
Six members of the ruthless MS-13 gang were indicted for racketeering in connection with the murder of a teen in Lynn, with the feds saying bail should be denied because they pose a serious threat to the public.
“The nature and circumstances of the (charges) are troubling and horrific,” a federal criminal affidavit reads.
That includes killing 17-year-old Herson Rivas on Aug. 2 with a large knife like they were “chopping wood.”

One of the accused, according to the affidavit, stabbed the defenseless teen “with such force his knife became warped during the attack.”
The teen’s body was found in a wooded park in Lynn. He was murdered, the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston said, because the MS-13 gang members — many illegal immigrants — believed he was cooperating with law enforcement.
One of the six accused, Henri Salvador Gutierrez, 19, of Somerville, dodged deportation a month before the murder.
“Salvador succeeded in convincing an immigration court that he was not in a gang, was not violent, did not pose a threat to the public,” the feds said.
