necessary to further the objectives of the gang. co-conspirators agreed to kill rival gang
members when local cliques reported issues with particular enemies that required their elimination.

which the group would proceed. The conspirators also agreed to kill their own members if there
was evidence to suggest that the member was disloyal to the gang by, for example, cooperating
with law enforcement or attempting to leave the gang. They even agreed to inflict punishment or·
death on those members who overstated their position in the gang or whose actions compromised
the gang's agendas, by failing to perform required tasks or acting in a manner injurious to the gang.

defendants, acting together and with other individuals, performed and caused to be performed the
