Transcript of gangs
By the 1920's, the city of Chicago is reported to have had over 1300 gangs in the city. Also, about this time, gangs began to form and have a presence in Los Angeles, California.The gangs of today wear colors or particular types of clothing and come from every ethnicity, Asian, Black (Afro-American), Hispanic, and White (Caucasian). They use nick names or "monikers" to identify themselves The gangs of today wear colors or particular types of clothing and come from every ethnicity, Asian, Black (Afro-American), Hispanic, and White (Caucasian). They use nick names or "monikers" to identify themselves.They use drugs and alcohol. They conduct criminal activity to include assaults and murder. The gangs of today did not originate any of these identifiers or criminal activities. They have simply increased and expanded that which was required to be a "gang banger" of yesteryear.
Street gangs hang together by one of a few common strings: economic hardship, the desire to belong or the want of protection. Without exception, they lack a single, centralized leadership structure, the kind that helps to define larger criminal organizations. Here's a survey of the top 10 notorious gangs from around the world. Gang is defined as three or more people who associate for the same common purpose. The behavior of the members, either individually or collectively, may be disruptive, anti-social or criminal. Probably the most common gangs are the CRIPS and the BLOODS. Both are Los Angeles street gangs that grew to prominence in the 1960s. Initially, both gangs were predominantly made up of black males, but now include both male and female members of all races and social classes in every state of the nation. The Crips and Bloods are rival gangs.
Also in the ‘60s, three street gangs emerged from Chicago. These gangs can now be found in various parts of the country. They are the BLACK GANGSTER DISCIPLE NATION (Black Gangsters or Black Gangster Disciples), the VICE LORDS and the LATIN KINGS.
Hispanic gangs from California have also migrated to the Midwest. They are generally divided into two groups: the SURENOS and the NORTENOS.
An entirely different category of gangs is the White Supremacists. These white gangs are not motivated by greed. Their motivation comes from a strong belief system based on hate and an ultra-right wing political ideology. They adhere to violence, intimidation, vandalism and anything that will insure the survival of the white race. While gang members may claim that theirs is unique, gangs fall into one of three categories:
1.Traditional. These are the gangs that have multi-generational members. They are steeped in traditions and are often referred to as “turf gangs”.
2. Non-traditional. These are the gangs that have mainly first time members in them. Gang members may have different reasons for belonging to the gang (power, structure, protection, etc). They are more loosely organized than the traditional gangs.
3. Entrepreneur. These are the gangs and/or gang members who are largely in it for the money. They engage in illegal activities such as selling drugs, stealing cars or car parts for fencing operations, etc. Gang.
