A Los Angeles gang member, Florencio Conchuza Gonzalez, who is part of the infamous Ms-13 gang, also called Mara Salvatrucha, has turned blind after getting his eye balls tattooed to celebrate his 17th anniversary.
The young man that is originally from El Salvador and came illegally into the country when he was only 8 years old has lived in the streets for as long as he remembers until he became a member of the MS-13 family only three years ago.
The 17-year old man who has been captured on video camera this week fleeing from a convenient store after an armed burglary with accomplices admitted his crimes to police officers, hoping they would fix his eyes in exchange for the information.
Police officer Juan Simons says he was shocked to see the young man willfully come inside the police station aided by a young boy and admited all his crimes to him.
“He just started crying and told us he would tell us anything we wanted as long as we would bring him back his vision” recalls the police officer.
“I reassured him we would do the best we could and called an ambulance immediately as his eyes were bleeding and were so swollen they looked like they were going to come out of his eye sockets.
“He has given us, in only a short time, a comprehensive list of drug and weapon resell points, gang leader names and even names of possible corrupt officers within our own forces, which need to be authenticated” admits a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department
