A channel on a micro-video website featuring notorious Liverpool criminal Stephen French has become an online hit.
‘Frenchy Vines’ features short clips from his appearances on Ross Kemp On Gangs and Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men.
He was nicknamed The Devil because he struck such fear into the drug dealers he “taxed” and tortured.
The short clips on the channel have had more than 300,000 views.
“I’m 6 foot 3 225 pounds of Prime Black Male”
“I’d lift up me Balaclava and say it’s me The Devil – what are ya gonna do abar it”
“I always wear a Suit Danny, I always wear a suit”
He had claimed a Road to Damascus-style conversion had put an end to his evil ways.
But in July 2013 he was jailed over a dramatic city centre gun showdown – it ended his 10-year campaign to portray himself as a reformed gangster and born-again Christian.
He was jailed for pistol-whipping a city businessman with an imitation gun over a money dispute – before dumping the weapon and a machete into the Mersey.
The armed siege to accost him saw parts of the city centre cordoned off as stunned locals and tourists watched on.
