Understanding Gangs


Although gang activity within the TBW area has gone down considerably, the unfortunately reality is that every community is now plagued with one type of gang or another.

 

Many don't think to look at the nicely kept $150,000.00 - 250,000.00 house across the street as a drug or gang house, but the suburbs and their schools have become an excellent breeding ground for gangs and their activities. Gangs are no longer classified as an inner city problem, but are now an issue that is wide spread throughout every community in the United States.


Age, income and athletic ability become obsolete as gangs are now reaching kids of all ages and races. We are seeing many members of sports teams becoming involved in gangs either through direct involvement or through association.


So what can be done to address this issue? The first thing we as a community need to do is learn more about gangs. In order to identify individuals as gang members you have to know their history, what their colors are, where they hang out, their language and their objective. Once you have a better understanding of who they are and what they are involved in, you have the ability to safely observe their activity and report it to law enforcement.

History & Origins of Gangs

The Los Angeles (LA)-based Bloods and Crips are probably the most widely recognized gangs in America due to the media exposure received in the 1980's. These groups have migrated throughout the country and are seen in most states and their prison populations. There are literally hundreds of sets or individual gangs under the main Blood and Crip names. They are no longer racially specific.” – Florida Department of Corrections “Los Angeles-based Gangs – Bloods and Crips”

Chicago based gangs emerged in the early 1960's and have two primary alliances: People Nation and Folk Nation. The People Nation and Folk Nation, also known as Nation Sets, are not gangs - they are alliances under which gangs are aligned.” – Florida Department of Corrections “Street Gangs – Chicago Based or Influenced”

“Only about 25,000 Americans are hardcore ideological activists for the white supremacist movement, a tiny fraction of the white population.” “They range from seemingly innocuous religious sects or tax protesters to openly militant, even violent, neo-Nazi skinheads and Ku Klux Klan Klaverns.” “Currently, Klan groups are on the decline while more Hitler-inspired groups, like the National Alliance and the Church of the Creator (Aryan Nations), are growing in numbers and influence. Swastikas and Uzis are replacing hoods and crosses.” – Florida Department of Corrections “Racial Supremacy and Neo-Nazi Groups”

“A motorcycle club is a group of individuals whose primary interest and activities involve motorcycles.”

“In the U.S. the abbreviation, MC or MCC, can have a special social meaning from the point of view of the outlaw (aka one percenter) subcultures, and is usually reserved by them for those clubs that are mutually recognized by other MC clubs.[1] This is indicated by wearing the MC patch, or a three piece patch, on the back of a club jacket or vest. Outlaw (or one percenter) can mean merely that the club is not chartered under the auspices of the American Motorcyclist Association,[2] implying a radical rejection of authority and embracing of the "biker" lifestyle defined and popularized since the 1950s and represented by such media as Easyriders magazine, and the work of painter David Mann, and more.

The Mafia in the United States emerged in impoverished Italian immigrant neighborhoods or ghettos in New York's East Harlem (or Italian Harlem), Lower East Side, and Brooklyn.
