THE DIRTY ARMY: Almost 1 year ago Eddies at 19th avenue and Camelback in Phoenix was raided by a joint operation by FBI and Homeland Security. Two employees; Tyran Williams and Pedro Medina were arrested for selling drugs behind the counter. One other employee named Rory Walters of Tempe, photos provided, somehow escaped arrest despite the fact that he regularly sells “kush”, street slang for high grade marijuana, manufactured by a neighborhood street gang to ASU students. He is often seen on Mill avenue at night and pushing product to people on the light-rail. The family that runs this convenience store that has been in the neighborhood since 1992 pays this local gang protection money. They have ruined the neighborhood by selling cheap beer which brings in tons of homeless people from downtown. They have also allowed prostitution on their property and what is scary is behind the property is an elementary school and the neighborhood is filled with young impressionable kids from lower-class families who are very impressionable and eager to fit in and give in to peer pressure and either join the local thugs, develop drug problems, or both. My hope is that in posting this a boycott of Eddie’s will take place forcing them to close up shop and leave the neighborhood forever. I have already reported all I know to Phoenix police in October 2013 and again this past May and there have been no additional arrests and I’m hoping more people will start talking now that I outed these thugs.
