Brooklyn Rapper Ra Diggs Charged, Indicted For Three Murders, Could Face Death Penalty

At one point, the aspiring emcee even bragged about one of the murders on Twitter.

Brooklyn, New York native Ra Diggs has been charged with three murders, including one that he bragged about on Twitter.

According to NYDN, the aspiring rapper was indicted today for the slayings, which are connected to his Gowanus Houses drug operation. The emcee, born Ronald Herron, could face the death penalty.

His charges extend to June 2001 for the murder of Frederick Brooks, which he originally beat after two witnesses refused to testify against him on account of his associates threatening them. In a later slaying, Herron bragged about the murder on Twitter, stating that he “beat a body.”

"His Tweets were premature," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch added, "Ronald Herron and his gang terrorized a Brooklyn community for more than a decade and he temporarily got away with murder by threatening and intimidating witnesses only to return to the streets of Brooklyn to kill and kill again.”

    No wonder all the weirdos and idiots comment here, Worldstar turned ON the log in to comment function. The children and lonely ones can't go to Complex, Worldstar, NahRight, XXL, AllHipHop, SOHH, 2Dopeboyz, VladTV, Miss Info, ThisIs50, FreeOnSmash, ForbezDVD, RapRadar, The Smoking Section or The Source to fock around so they come here, the last place where the email log in function is turned off. Smarten up HipHopDX, you are not advocating usage of free speech with this move, you are only doing it to increase page views to get ad money from COMPLEX. NahRight is in the same network as you and their comment section is RESPECTED in the industry, and they are HEAVILY MODERATED.

    Slavery by another name; the story of blacks in the 19th century being arrested after the civil war on and charged an convicted on spurios charges, then leased or sold as laborers to various entities a practice that lasted well into the 20th century! Sounds like what happens when u catch a felony! Amerikkka is so beautiful! Now free niggers are arguing over musicians and mc's Malcom, Fredrick, Martin, Huey, h Rap, Marcus would be so proud!

    The DP is the easy way out. You should have to think about it everyday for the rest of your life while sitting in a cramped cell going stir crazy counting the holes in the ceiling. The only problem there is these killers and thugs still get three meals a day, special privileges, cigarettes, etc. so in a way, they live much the same way they did out on the street.

      You obviously have no clue about NY's Death Penalty issues or life on Death Row. Educate yourself and stop spreading misinformation.

    What goes around comes around I gues, if he did it he deserves what he gets Personally speaking tho I always thought the Death Penalty was an easy way out..... If you gave me a choice of a lethal injection or growing old inside a prison I'd roll my sleeve up and say "Lets get this over with"

    "Wishing prison/death on someone is the next closest thing to snitching" ... yeah, and I'd "snitch" on a criminal parasite if I knew something too. Lowlifes like you enable criminals to do what they do. Have fun in the slammer there Boo Rah, Doo Dog, or whateverthefuuu your name is. Seems you're getting what's coming.

      I could care less for a thug or criminal but when u went imto the...have fun with boo rah/doo rag it was a dead giveaway.

      Yeah I am white, not that that has anything to do with anything. Criminals are criminals, including my white gangster brother who was shot in the head and chest by his best friend over some power struggle. He lived the life he lived and got what he deserved too. Criminals don't deserve fans, they don't deserve reverence, they deserve to look at the world through bars. And I didn't say all blacks and latinos support criminals. I said people that complain about "snitches" do.

    DX and you kids don't know anything. He never bragged about killing on twitter. When you catch a body you are charged with murder. If you beat a body that means you are not prosecuted or convicted. nuff said

    not for the first time on this site i find myself asking - Why are so many of you wishing prison or death on this man? You don't know him. You don't know the victims. You're affected by this in absolutely no way. This is a situation for the victims nearest and dearest to have a view on and deal with, not you. Wishing prison/death on someone is the next closest thing to snitching. Keep your nose out.

  • BlazeDatishUp

    Why would you kill someone and brag about it on twitter. That's some ignorant shit..smfh.. He should be locked up and never get out, or get the death penalty as they were saying... One less ignorant waste of sperm on the streets...
