Gang Injunction Includes Three Men Acquitted of Murders This Year

Forty-one more men are now forbidden from flashing gang signs

Three men acquitted of first-degree murder charges earlier this year aren't out of the legal spotlight. Emon Brown, Joc Wilson, and Floyd Jackson are among the 41 alleged gang members listed in the gang injunction that City Attorney Dennis Herrera won in Superior Court this morning against two rival Visitacion Valley gangs that have feuded for decades. None of their defense attorneys could be immediately reached for comment Thursday. Acquittals aside, the expert testimony against Brown, Jackson, and Wilson includes many other instances of weapon and drug possession.

The injunction (which brings the number of gangs that Herrera has targeted to seven) prevents the listed defendants from associating, trespassing, loitering, or flashing gang signs in the two-tenths of a square mile in Visitacion Valley near the Cow Palace that comprises their turf.
