T Shirt Sparks Murder

(Punkbands/APP) Following up on this story about James Morrison, who was killed at a hardcore show in Asbury Park, NJ, the same newspaper who initially reported Morrison's death is now saying FSU is tied to the murder. In an article published this past Sunday, the paper quotes Morrison's mother saying "It's definitely FSU who is responsible." She adds "If they say it's not, they're lying."
The brawl that led to Morrison's murder may have all started with an FSU member taking offense at a Lynyrd Skynyrd shirt� Within 15 minutes of walking through the door, one of Morrison's friends � who was wearing a Lynyrd Skynyrd shirt that features a Confederate flag � was approached by a man and told to take the offending shirt off.

FSU [is a gang], which stands for Friends Stand United, or two curse words followed by the word "up." Once responsible for driving out neo-Nazi elements in the Boston hard-core punk scene of the mid-1980s, FSU is now a bizarre gang of young men who assault individuals at hard-core shows in dozens of cities across the country. Many of the bands that were slated to play Jan. 14 at Club Deep are affiliated with FSU, or are known to attract gang members to their shows, according to sources with the New Jersey State Police Organized Crime Control Bureau.
