Original Gangsters

One of Pittsburgh's most enduring street gangs saw many of its members indicted and arrested Thursday, in the second major North Side takedown in a little more than a year. The Manchester OGs, short for Original Gangsters, "fund their criminal organization through the distribution of heroin and robberies throughout the Pittsburgh area," said U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton. Pittsburgh police Chief Nate Harper called the OGs "home-grown terrorists." "North Side will not be the heroin capital of this area any longer." he said. - Rich Lord, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
