Crazy White Boyz Samuel Lusty and Joseph Tarre
Following a months-long investigation, the police gang unit arrested and indicted members of the misanthropic Crazy White Boyz (the 'z' is actually my addition) on drug distribution charges Monday. They might sound white supremacist, but they're actually just grown men living out some sort of misguided gangsta existence because they, and I quote, "did not get the respect they deserved" as teens. Now, whether this perceived lack of props owes to the fact that they're white, or, rather, because they are your garden variety urban/suburban outcasts, only members of the Boyz know for sure. Or what Boyz remain on the street.
One thing is certain, their ability to sniff out undercover cops buying large quantities of Ecstasy, Percocet and Lortab, an opiate, was certainly underdeveloped. Over the course of 10 weeks, undercover officers bought 1,200 Ecstacy pills from the ringleader, Joseph Tarre, 33, mostly around Hermitage, and some 400 Lortab and Percocet pills from Samuel Lusty, 28.
Police believe Tarre was cooking the Ecstasy in his Shadowlawn Drive home. Tarre faced an attempted 2nd degree murder charge here in Davidson County in 2003.
