Los Angeles Crips and Bloods: Past and Present Los Angeles Crips and Bloods: Past and Present Julia Dunn Poverty & Prejudice: Gangs of All Colors 'A gang is an interstitial group, originally formed spontaneously, and then integrated through conflict. It is characterized by the following types of behavior: meeting face to face, milling, movement through space as a unit, conflict, and planning. The result of this collective behavior is the development of tradition, unreflective internal structure, esprit de corps, solidarity, morale, group awareness, and attachment to a local territory' 1. African-American gangs began to emerge in the Los Angeles area during the 1920's, which was in concordance with the large black population in the city. The gangs in existence at this particular time in history were not territorial. My Cyber Cafe 11 Serial Port here. Smartscore X Pro Mac Serial Info. On the other hand, they were 'loose associations, unorganized, and rarely violent' 2. Moreover, they did not employ monikers, graffiti, or various other gang characteristics to identify themselves.
Gangs of the 1920's and 1930's were composed mainly of family members and friends, and they were involved only in very limited criminal actions. In fact, the main purpose of these criminal activities was to transmit a ' 'tough guy' image and to provide an easy means of obtaining money' 3. During the 1920's and 1930's, gangs such as the 'Goodlows,' 'Kelleys,' 'Magnificents,' 'Driver Brothers,' 'Boozies,' and the 'Bloodgetts' wandered the streets of Los Angeles. All of these gangs committed petty crimes in comparison to gangs today. The 'Boozies,' for example, consisted of brothers and their friends who engaged in prostitution, theft and forgery. As the 1940's approached, black gangs were beginning to grow in numbers.
Gangs including the 'Purple Hearts,' '31st Street,' and '28th Street' emerged in this decade, and their activities were very similar to those of gangs in the 20's and 30's. In addition to theft, prostitution and forgery, gangs of the 1940's were involved in extortion and gambling. 'They were very effective in forcing local merchants to pay the gangsters for protection, which amounted to paying the gang not to burn the merchant's store' 4. The 1950's witnessed the arrival of car 'clubs,' which included the 'Low Riders,' 'Coasters,' 'Highwaymen,' 'Road Devils,' 'Businessmen,' 'Gladiators,' 'Slausons,' 'Rebel Rousers,' 'Huns,' 'Watts Farmers,' and the 'Blood Alley.' These particular gangs were extremely protective of their territory, however, they were not organized very well and did not consist of many members. The activities of the gangs remained the same in relation to previous decades.
Any conflicts that did arise between gangs occurred when rival gang members found themselves in an enemy's territory. As was generally the case, each gang would gather it's members together, meet in a deserted lot or park and physically fight to the end. The gang with the most people standing at the conclusion of the fight was declared the winner, and the losers would simply limp home and recover. Weapons, such as chains, knives, and bats, were used occasionally in these rival conflicts.
