Danny Polo Identifies Trippie Redd & Fredo Bang As Blood Gang Members

Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective Danny Polo, whose face is concealed because he works undercover, testifies during the double murder trial for Jamell Demons, better known as rapper YNW Melly, at the Broward County Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Thursday, June 22, 2023.

Demons is facing a possible death sentence for the October 2018 fatal shooting of his childhood friends, Anthony Williams and Christopher Thomas Jr. Williams and Thomas were both part of the YNW collective, known respectively as YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy.

Broward Circuit Judge John Murphy permitted Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective Danny Polo to testify with his face covered because he has received death threats from people unrelated to the case against YNW Melly.

In a new development, Danny Polo has stirred up controversy once more. The detective identifies rapper Trippie Redd and Fredo Bang as Blood gang members.

Defense attorney Jason Roger Williams said jurors are supposed to consider the demeanor of a witness to determine his credibility, and they can’t do that if they can’t see his face, the SunSentinel reported.

“The state could have chosen any expert in gangs,” Williams said. “They elected to choose one who has threats against his life that don’t concern this case, and who is undercover. They have precipitated this problem.”

Polo was eventually allowed to testify, tying YNW Melly, whose legal name is Jamell Demons, to membership in G-Shine, an offshoot of the Bloods. Polo said there are hundreds of photos of Demons with other Bloods.
