Is West Palm Unfairly Maligned for Palm Beach County Violence?

Just posted to Youtube, that's the first of a six-part History Channel Gangland episode that aired in July about Top 6, the gang-slash-record label thought to have a role in violent clashes in Lake Worth and Boynton Beach, where its conflict with gang rivals has been the bloodiest. It's a good bet that Top 6 knows more than authorities do about the stabbings Friday night in Lake Worth that followed a rap battle there.

But as you can see from the video, the credit / blame for Top 6-related violence is attributed to West Palm Beach -- dubbed "a dangerous killing zone" in a voiceover that shows corpses and blood on the streets. Were those from incidents that happened in West Palm? If they involved Top 6, they probably happened elsewhere in Palm Beach County.
