How crazy is that Crazy White Boy gang? So crazy members brag about being in gangs on Facebook and, get this, they don't even give a fuck. Whatever. Whatever. They do what they want.

Or they did until they got arrested.

Yes, a group called the Crazy White Boys Criminal Street Gang exists, and, obviously, is active in Florida.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office went looking for gang activity on Facebook and turned up pictures of Mario Daniel McDonald, 23, and Joseph Wayne Edwards, 27, and found these gang related pics on their profiles.

See, their gang sign is in the shape of a "W," for white. Creative.

"The still images attached to these Facebook accounts promote and further the interests of the criminal street gang," Captain James Pogue, Marion County Sheriff's Office PIO said in a statement. "The images show the suspects committing criminal activity, in this case: possession of a firearm by convicted felons."

The duo was then arrested and charged with criminal street gang activity, possession of firearm by convicted felon, grand theft, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

But none of this answers our most pressing question: What is the Crazy White Boy Gang?

Buzzfeed points out that they keep an official Facebook page. It includes the following membership criteria: "to be in the gang you must be white and you must get the tattoo CWB."

Though Urban Dictionary appears to have the most in depth description:

CWB's are white people who have grown up in the streets and/or urban/hiphop lifestyle. They are people who grew up feeling outcast by white people for "being black wanna bes" and by the black community for being white. They are FAR from racist, as they usually have many friends or are married to people of other ethnicities. They believe it is good there are organizations out there to help the minority groups, but do not like being discriminated against just for being the color they are, white. They believe equality should be honestly EQUAL. They are unified through more than race, but the fact that they all shared similar life stories of struggle, discrimination, and feeling left out of the very neighborhoods they grew up in/live in.

Alright then.
