The neighborhood is all apartment buildings in a quiet neighborhood. It is just east of Loara High School in Anaheim, and sits on the back side of Disneyland.

Published: Oct. 9, 2010

Anaheim residents have a party to celebrate an injunction against the Jeffrey Street gang.

ANAHEIM – The gang is called Jeffrey Street, but there no longer is a street by that name.

The neighborhood the gang claims, once known as Jeffrey-Lynne, is now called Hermosa Village.

On Saturday, neighborhood residents were treated to hot dogs and hamburgers to celebrate a recent court injunction against the gang. The party at Energy Field was hosted by the Anaheim Police Department and the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Once one of Anaheim's most blighted, high-crime neighborhoods, Jeffrey-Lynne was transformed into Hermosa Village starting about 10 years ago as the city bought and renovated many of its two-story apartment buildings.

"It's way better than before," said Ariana Gutierrez, 15, a Loara High student who has lived in the neighborhood since she was 2. "It doesn't look so ugly."

Crime began to drop when the city did the renovations, Police Sgt. Juan Reveles said. Many of the gang members have moved out, he said. However, they still gravitate toward the neighborhood because it's where they feel safe, he said. Elsewhere, they're either in "no-man's land" or in an enemy gang's territory, he said.

After the renovations, Jeffrey Street was renamed Calle del Sol. When it was removed, the Jeffrey Street sign had a couple of bullet holes in it, Reveles said.

The injunction, served on 60 of the gang's most active members in July, gives the police an additional tool to use against the gang. It forbids two or more gang members to congregate inside a 1.59-square-mile "safety zone" bounded by Katella Avenue to the south, Nutwood Street to the west, Ball Road to the north and Disneyland Drive to the east.

Also forbidden are wearing gang clothing and throwing hand signs. Gang members subject to the injunction can be arrested and prosecuted for these activities, which would otherwise be legal. In the first two months of the injunction, there were nine such violations, but none in the third month, Reveles said.

It's the second gang injunction in Anaheim and the eighth in Orange County. Others are in Santa Ana, Orange, Garden Grove, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.

The ban on congregating keeps members from "posting up," or hanging out in public to attract members of rival gangs who might be looking for a fight, Reveles said. "Posting up" creates danger for gang members and non-members alike.

"What the lay person doesn't understand is that these people are willing to die for the neighborhood," he said.

Rogelio Franco, 35, used to live in Jeffrey-Lynne in the mid-1990s. He moved back a year ago to what is now Hermosa Village.

"There were a lot of gangs back in those years," he said. "Now it's different. It's like a new place."

Violent crime in the neighborhood is down 33 percent since the injunction was served, said Susan Eckermann, a deputy district attorney who prepared the injunction.

ANAKRIME KROOKS

V'SSK'R 13'LSB

OxC KROOKS BASED IN ANAHEIM
VARRIO SOUTH SIDE KROOKS WERE ORIGINALLY PART OF THE "SICK OF SOCIETY KINGS" TAGGING CREW FROM OxC WHICH WAS PART OF THE LARGER SSK CREW WHICH OPERATED IN BOTH L.A. & ORANGE COUNTIES.

SEVERAL BRANCHES OF SSK EXISTED IN DIFFERENT AREAS. WHEN THEY GOT TO MOBBIN AND TAG'BANGING SEVERAL DIFFERENT VERSIONS WERE DERIVED OUT OF THEIR SSK INITIALS..

SOME SICK KINGS
SUI'SIDAL KINGS
SOUTH SIDE KINGS
SOUTH SIDE KRIMINALS
SEVENTEEN STREET KROOKS
AND SOUTH SIDE KROOKS

THE ORIGINAL BIRTHGROUNDS WERE IN THE L.A. PICO UNION BONNIE BREA CALLE

SSK USED TO GO EVERYWHERE ON MISSIONS, AND MEMBERS OF THE KINGS KICKED IT IN ALL SOxCAL COUNTIES. EVENTUALLY, THE GREATER SSK KREW BROKE DOWN INTO SMALLER MORE LOCALIZED KREWS. AND THEN SOME TURNED INTO THEIR OWN CLIQUES-TURNED-VARRIO. THE ONES IN BONNIE BREA BECAME THE BONNIE BREA WINOS AND MALDITOS CLIQUES. THE SSK IN OxC TURNED SOUTH SIDE KROOKS LOS BAGOS CLIQUE AFTER THEY MERGED WITH THE CAMBRIDGE AVE (CAVE BROWN GANG) FROM ANAKRIME, AND CAMBRIDGE AVENUE BECAME SSK NEIGHBORHOOD!

SEVERAL OTHER CLIQUES HAVE SPRUNG OUT AND HAVE THEIR ROOTS WITH THE ORIGINAL SSK AND THEY EITHER HAVE SETTLED DOWN IN A PLACE TO BECOME THEIR OWN, OR HAVE INCORPORATED INTO OTHER VARRIOS FROM THE SOUTHERN UNITED RAZA CAMP.. SOME OF THEIR BEEFS FROM THEIR TAG'BANGER DAYS HAVE CARRIED OVER, AND SOME PRIOR ENEMIGAS KREWS HAVE ALSO TURNED VARRIO, LIKE THE EK., EVIL KINGS/EVIL KIDS WHO NOW GO BY EVIL KLAN. SO HAVING STARTED OUT AS A TAG KREW RIVALRY, THEY CONTINUED ON TO BE RIVALS ON SUR KALLES!

..

THE STORY OF THE ANAHEIM REAL DEAL "KROOKS"

ANAHEIM VARRIO KROOKS 13 CAVE LSB

SOUTH SIDE KROOKS CAMBRIDGE AVENUE LOS BAGOS

SSK WAS ORGINALLY THE SICK OF SOCIETY TAGGER CREW FROM L.A. COUNTY. BUT THEN SSK STARTED GETTING UP EVERYWHERE AND THEN SSK STARTED GETTING INTO THE SAME KIND OF TAGBANGERS PROBLEMS OF THE TIMES, AND THEN THEY REALLY TURNED IT UP AND STARTED MOBBING HARD. THEY HAD MAD PLEITO WITH ANOTHER TAGBANGER KREW OF THE TIMES KNOWN AS THE EVIL KINGS WHICH LATER BECAME THE EVIL KIDS IN OXC AND EVIL KLAN IN L.A.

THE ORIGINAL SOUTH SIDE KINGS HOOD WAS SET UP ON L.A’s. WEST SIDE ON BONNIE BREA WITH THE WINOES AND MALDITOS CLIKAS. ANOTHER SSK KLIK THAT SET UP AND ATTAINED NOTORIETY WAS THE SEVENTEEN STREET KRIMINALS.

IN ORANGE COUNTY THE SSK KICKED IT AT CAMBRIDGE AVENUE IN ANAKRIME TOGETHER WITH THOSE THAT WERE KNOWN BACK THEN AS THE CAVE BROWNS GANG, WHICH WAS MADE UP OF JOCKS AND KIDS THAN WENT TO ANAKRIME & KATELLA HIGH SCHOOLS. THAT WAS BACK IN 1987 WHEN CAVE STARTED OUT AT THE SAME TIME THAT OTHERS LIKE KROGGER, PAULINE, WATER STREET AND THE OPTIONAL BOYZ WERE HAPPENING. DURING THOSE TIMES THE AVLS, WSA & PENGUINS WOULD HANG OUT WITH THE CAVE GANG. SOME OFF-AND-ON BEEFS WOULD OCCUR, BUT THAT WAS JUST THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS ON THE KALLE. BUT THEN SERIOUS PEDOS STARTED HAPPENING, AND THEN PLEITO WITH UNDERHILL CAME NEXT. SOME SSK WERE FORCED TO MOVE OUT, AND THEN LATER ONE OF THEIR ORANGE KOUNTY FOUNDERS WAS KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT. THIS WEIGHED HEAVY ON THE YOUNG KROOKS, BUT THEN NEW KROOK HEADS ROSE UP AND THEY BEGAN TO GET HARDER AND GREW DEEPER. SSK AND CAVE DECIDED TO CLIQUE UP AND THIS IS WHEN SOUTH SIDE KROOKS CAMBRIDGE AVENUE LOS BAGOS WAS KREATED. KAMBRIDGE AVENUE REMAINED THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND SSK GREW INTO A WEB OF HOMIES AND THE LOS BAGOS KLIKA CAME TO DOMINATE THE SCENE IN THE CITY OF KRIME.

PUENTE 13



The City of La Puente is all colored in yellow (unincorp areas not included). The community of Valinda is outlined in green, seen on the northeast section of the map. Bassett is on the far north west side, and "La Hacienda Puente"(Happy Homes) is on the bottom side where you read Industry on the map.

La Puente was one of those many so-called hicks towns that where out there in the boonies; and the boonies seemed so far away from L.A. (20 miles) back in the 1930s and 40s., Back then the area was filled with muddy river beds, and rail road tracks criss-crossed the flat hills topography of the Puente Valley. Packed-dirt sidewalks were the norm in many of its neighborhood streets. It was a stereotypical Mexican place where you could fence in your property and raise chickens or goats, and hunt coons or roadrunners just a short distance from the roads and homes; the place was like country living.

After WWII, La Puente became a boom town. The place was prime marketing land for the realty companies which came in and divided up everything into "tracts" and laid it all out into "grids." .. So many families from L.A. and elsewhere moved to La Puente in the 1950's that for a time the place was called "kidsville," because there where just so many little folks on its streets; kids ruled; they owned the streets.

La Puente grew so much during the 1950's that it was incorporated as it's own City in the year 1956. La Puente for a time was the classical white urban city of the leave it to beaver kind of epoch. But just like it's twisted name of "LA" instead of "EL" Puente, it also had another story brewing under its topside look. White on the outside, Brown on the inside.

Thee History of the Bridgetown and of it's crazy "LA" instead of "EL" in its name goes back to to when the old Spanish explorers crossed over the hills from La Abra (La Habra), and upon coming down on the other side, they crossed over a bridge that they built over the San Jose (river) creek, back like in 1769; and according to folk legend the Spaniard explorer Portola named the region "Llana de La Puente" - meaning Plain of the Bridge., the "LA" instead of the "EL" is said to be because of the Portuguese that were with the Spanish, who use LA instead of EL., this same place later became a "Rancho," and when the Whites arrived, they took over the name; later their fields and farms attracted large crowds of gente; raza who came in droves during the 1920s and 30s, and by the 1950s, the time when the homes and freeway construction were taking place, simon, Chicanos made La Puente their home. And so first the Chucos who got it together as Old Town Puente Gents, and then later they went on to become Puente 13 Tinflanes.

TINFLANES, now there's a name for the books., so full of meaning!

P13 was founded in the early 1950’s in La Puente. At the time of its conception, it was known as the “Bridgetown Gentlemen,” or “Old Town Puente.” Later the gang became known simply as Puente 13.

Over the decades since, it has dramatically expanded its membership and territory into neighboring cities and communities, to include unincorporated county areas, and portions of Walnut, Industry, Hacienda Heights, and West Covina.

There are currently 14 subsets, or cliques of the Puente 13 gang.

New cliques were formed by members living in a particular geographical area, and were named accordingly (i.e. Happy Homes was founded by Puente 13 members residing in Hacienda Heights), and cliques such as Blackwood Street, Northam Street, Rama Street, and Dial Blvd. were founded by Puente 13 members residing on those respective street zones of Greater La Puente.

Currently its gang membership (active or inactive) is roughly between 600 to 1000 in numbership.

FEDERAL RACKETEERING INDICTMENT LEADS TO ARREST OF 8 MEMBERS, ASSOCIATES OF SAN GABRIEL VALLEY STREET GANG

LOS ANGELES – A joint federal-state law enforcement operation this morning led to the arrest of eight people linked to a San Gabriel Valley street gang who are charged in a federal racketeering and narcotics indictment that alleges the gang has engaged in violent crimes and methamphetamine trafficking that helped fund the Mexican Mafia.

Today’s arrests are the result of a 22-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury on June 2. The indictment names 17 defendants, 16 of whom are charged under the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. In addition to the RICO charges, the indictment alleges violent crimes in aid of racketeering, conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, firearms violations and other offenses.

The federal indictment that led to this morning’s takedown focuses on Puente-13, a street gang that was formed in the City of La Puente approximately 60 years ago. Puente-13 claims as its turf a large portion of La Puente, as well as unincorporated parts of the San Gabriel Valley and portions of nearby cities such as Hacienda Heights, Walnut and West Covina. The gang is comprised of approximately 600 members and includes at least 14 subsets or “cliques.” Puente-13 is aligned with the Mexican Mafia, as indicted by the “13" in the gang's name, which references the 13th letter in the alphabet – the letter M. The indictment states that the gang is currently controlled by Mexican Mafia member Rafael Munoz Gonzalez.

Members of Puente-13 are involved in the distribution of narcotics, particularly methamphetamine, according to the indictment, which also alleges that leaders of the gang extort drug dealers by collecting “taxes,” the payment of which allows drug dealers to operate in gang-controlled territory.

The RICO conspiracy count in the indictment alleges a series of specific overt acts, including the murder of a rival gang member who was punished for collecting taxes on behalf of Gonzalez without Gonzalez’s knowledge, several stabbings designed to deter victims from cooperating with law enforcement, and numerous instances in which gang members possessed firearms and narcotics for sale.

“Violent drug gangs continue to wreak havoc within our communities,” said Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent in Charge Timothy J. Landrum. “Today’s arrests send the message that law enforcement will continue to work together to take back our neighborhoods and get violent drug traffickers and gangs off our streets.”

Four of the defendants in the federal racketeering case are eligible for the death penalty because of their involvement in the 2006 murder of the rival gang member who was collecting taxes without authorization. Those defendants are: Rafael Munoz Gonzalez, also known as Cisco, 40, of La Puente, the Mexican Mafia member who allegedly controls Puente-13; Cesar Munoz Gonzalez, also known as Blanco, 36, of Rowland Heights, Rafael Gonzalez’s brother and allegedly the Mexican Mafia member’s top lieutenant; Steven Nunez, also known as Flaco, 30, who currently a state prisoner; and Angel Frank Torres, also known as Smiley, 34, who is currently a state prisoner.

The remaining 13 defendants face either life without parole in federal prison or prison sentences of up to 20 years if they are convicted of the charges in the indictment.

Those taken into custody this morning will begin making their initial appearances this afternoon in United States District Court in Los Angeles.

In addition to the eight arrested this morning, seven defendants were already in custody. Authorities are continuing to search for two defendants named in the RICO indictment – Adrian Rodriguez, also known as Trips, 25, of Huntington Park; and Henry Rick Zabala, 40, of La Puente.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

In addition to the agencies that conducted the investigation, several law enforcement agencies assisted in this morning's takedown, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives;
the United States Marshals Service;
the Pomona Police Department;
the Baldwin Park Police Department;
the La Verne Police Department;
the Montebello Police Department;
the El Monte Police Department;
the Huntington Beach Police Department;
the Gardena Police Department;
the South Gate Police Department;
and the Los Angeles Interagency Metropolitan Police Apprehension Crime Task Force (LA IMPACT).

The Injunction thrown on Puente Valley

A judge granted a preliminary injunction Tuesday that restricts the activities of gang members in 16 square miles of the San Gabriel Valley.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office sought the civil injunction against members of Puente 13 and Bassett Grande, which are behind violence, drug sales and protection rackets in the Valinda Corridor and the city of La Puente, officials said.

Puente 13, a multi-generational gang formed more 60 years ago, is made up of more than 1,000 members believed to engage in narcotics trafficking and "tax" collection from other drug dealers, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Michael Fern. The gang includes at least 14 subsets or "cliques."

Puente 13 is aligned with the Mexican Mafia, represented by "13" in the gang name, referencing the 13th letter in the alphabet -- M.

Bassett Grande, with more than 300 known members, is Puente 13's primary rival.

A chunk of its hierarchy was indicted by federal prosecutors last year for racketeering in connection with methamphetamine trafficking.

The indictment stated that the gang is controlled by Mexican Mafia member Rafael Munoz Gonzalez.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Chalfant granted the civil injunction, which designates the approximately 16-square-mile area a "safety zone."

The injunction covers the communities of Avocado Heights, Bassett, South San Jose Hills and Valinda. According to Fern, it is largest geographic area for which the district attorney's office has obtained such an injunction.

The injunction orders Puente 13 and Bassett Grande gang members not to associate with one another in public or possess weapons, narcotics or graffiti tools within the injunction area.

They also are barred from two parks in La Puente -- Bassett Park in the 500 block of Vineland Avenue and La Puente Park in the 500 block of North Glendora Avenue.

It prohibits members of those gangs from wearing gang apparel, trespassing on property and loitering in public places. It also imposes a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew for the gang members.

A violation of the injunction can result in a six-month jail term.

To win approval, the district attorney's office produced Sheriff's Department tracking data showing how much gang graffiti there was in the injunction area.

CREASES

Lines on the tramos

A thing from the old school... I look around me.. I glance this way and that way and what do I see? NO CREASES! What the f*ck has our style been brought down to? Saggers por aqui, twisted lids por aya and wrinkled tramos with no lines por aca. No f*cken true old stilo! What the f*ck? No one knows how to use that iron any more? Everybody is caught up with acting and speaking smart; ego tripping, attitude and all that.. Nobody taking the time to learn how to work some magic with that plancha. Nobody seems to have been taught how to fold those tramos and slide that iron up and down to create that firme line, that clean line, from top to bottom., how to take it slow, get that little crease all up in there., how to take the time to get those tramos looking sharp all crispy clean., something to be proud of, something you can step out to the calle and strike up a pose with your forehead held high!

Creases seem to be a thing of the past.. Sportswear and gangsta talk seems to be the replacement all around! But nobody gets down with that starch and steam any more. Seems like everybody forgot to do some work.. some real work other than blasting disrespects left and right. Everybody’s eyes got clouded.. Everybody went tripping.. making dough and all that mainstream world cosas., and everyone forgot about our true old style! Few gente se avienta con la plancha nowadays.. So it trips me out when I catch a Homeboy con tandito and creases.. I say “ORALE” this f*cker is for reals! Orale Cabron, you got my respects!!! A Dyeing Breed Indeed!

Ironing is like a "ritual"., it's like an art form, and you got to be sweet with the plancha doing those creases, the right temperature, the right amount of steam, sprinkled water, wet rag and starch, although i ain't never liked to put starch on my tramos, but if you do, you got to know how to spray that on, and then you got to hit the plancha on that starch perfect, otherwise the startch comes out shinny or flaky, and you don't want that., but yeah homie, it's like a rirual, porque you gotta have the right attitude for it, and the right tools tambien, which include having your sounds playing and your buzz for the mood, que no?

I throw up my ironing board.. I get my oldies playing.. I get my bottle and smokes near me and I close the door to my room.. Turn them speakers on and iron away all afternoon. Don’t give a f*ck about the world out there without creases!

So Orale all you batos arrugados.
Time to pull out your tablas, fill up your planchas and grab your garras.

Fine tune that volume, and .....

Thee Chicano Talk Pyramid

The CHICANO TALK pyramid derives from

the INDIAN.......and......the SPANISH

AZTEC.........................MADRID
TOLTEC.......................ANDALUCIA
MAYA..........................CASTILLIAN
ZAPOTEC....................MOORISH
MIXTEC.......................HUNGARO (GYPSIE)

THE....................and THE
NAHUATL....................HISPANO


COMBINED NAHUATL & HISPANO EQUAL..
= ARCHAIC MEXICAN LANGUAGE


CENTRAL MEXICO MIXTO LANGUAGE TRAVELED NORTH

AND THE COMBINATION OF MIXTO SPANISH & WESTERN ENGLISH
COMBINED TO BECOME "TOTACHA"

TOTACHA = "CHICANO TALK"

AND THE TOTACHA DIALECT INCLUDES..

1) TEX-MEX
2) PACHUQUISMO
3) CALO
4) SPANGLISH
5) TRI-MIX

TRI MIX INCORPORATES, SPANISH, ENGLISH & TOTACHA

THEREFORE LA TOTACHA "CHICANO TALK" KEEPS RE-INVENTING ITSELF

NEVER-ENDING!

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

THAT'S PART OF OUR CULTURE
ONE THAT AMERICA NEITHER UNDERSTANDS NOR RESPECTS
MUCH LESS ALLOW US TO REPRESENT

TO BOTH THE RULING ELITE OF EITHER AMERIKA OR MEJIKO
LA TOTACHA,
a.k.a. CALO,
a.k.a. CHICANO TALK..
is of the LOWER MASSES
"NOT WORTHY AS A LANGUAGE"


"I BELIEVE IT OTHERWISE"
~> FOR IT IS SO REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR BROWN SOUL

THE SOUL OF A PEOPLE ~> THE CHICANO PEOPLE OF AZTLAN

AND THUS IT MERITS RESPECT AND RECOGNITION AS A BONAFIDE LANGUAGE

IN THIS "OUR LAND"

FOR THIS IS "OUR LENGUA"

Why Are We Any Different?

What does society in general fail to recognize about the Homeboys and the Barrio sub-culture?

From my perspective, society in general tends to view the Homeboys and our Barrios in a criminal aspect. Society believes what the media and law enforcement portrays La Raza to be. It views our sub-culture as a scourge that needs to be dealt with by imprisonment. It denies their culpability in the creation of such an attitude developed in so many minds. It fails to understand that we are a resistance to the system that enslaves minds into a life of dread. It dehumanizes our being and the reasons why we are who we are. What good can come out of a sub-culture that thrives in warfare and violence they ask? Little do they realize that the Varrios present so many with a sense of belonging and a way to survive in a world that cares little about an individual. Why do so many adhere to such a culture they ask themselves and it boggles their mind. They can’t find no logical answers to the question. They build jails and create laws that they think is the answer to the problem. They fund programs and studies to try and curve the so-called problem. But they really don’t want to understand the causes and reasons, because they’re afraid to come face to face with their shortcomings. When someone really takes a deep look into what’s going on, they come to realize so many truths as to how it all came to be. American culture is in reality one of ingrained violence to solve problems. American culture is one that instills in people a mindset that in order to belong, the individual must drop all vestments of being different from mainstream. An immigrant must not speak his language. An immigrant must act and behave like an “American”. And if he/she refuses, then he/she must be criminalized and incarcerated. A Vato Loco is not looked upon as a role model; neither can he be a respectable father or caring family member. A Vato Loco cannot be a contributor to positive thinking, nor beneficial to society is the average American thinking. But why can’t he? Why can’t he be looked upon as a reasonable person? Why can he be looked upon as a provider? Why can’t his world be recognized as a benefit to society at large? Why must he be a criminal?

Lets analyze the world of the Vato Loco. . .

The Vato Loco who belongs in a neighborhood doesn’t necessarily have to be a “gang member”. He lives and schools in a neighborhood where there’s all kinds of negative and positive forces working around him, and he does his best to make something out of nothing. He loves his folks and he loves his community. The Homeboys are but an extension of his blood relatives. He doesn’t want to grow up and be a drug addict or a failure in life. He dreams and longs for security just like everyone else in this world. His world is made up of people that at one time or another can help him get by a hardship. Some of those around him offer him protection. Others offer him advice. Others offer him connections to services or material needs. Still others offer him comfort and companionship. If a Vato Loco has a problem at home with his Jefitos, what happens? There’s always a Homeboy who will let him crash out for a few days. There’s always a Homeboy who can steer him to where they’re hiring. There’s always a Homeboy who will listen and give some words of advice; there’s always a Homeboy who cares.

A Vato Loco goes through all the ups and downs that everybody else goes through. He is no different than anybody else. He has heartbreaks and aspirations just like everyone else in this planet. He is no different than Cain or Abel. He’s a Sinner that has pains and bleeds. He feels both love and rejection. And so he acts upon what he feels. He deals with his world the best he can. He is no better and no worse than anybody else. He is a Lost Soul seeking redemption. Some find it sooner, some find it later, and some never find it at all. But why criminalize him? Why cut his chances short? What benefit is there for society if you bring a man down and tear down his soul by rejection and defamation? Absolutely none whatsoever!

El Vato Loco is labeled like a cancer, and treated like one too. He can be beaten, he can be wounded, he can be dehumanized, he can be denied his rights, and he can be demonized and be incarcerated for life, yet still he refused to surrender his soul. He refuses to give in to a system that takes away a man’s identity and submerges him into a matrix of irrelevance. For what good does a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

That soul of the Vato Loco has lived a life full of discrimination, poverty, and filled with a history of violence, yet still survives. So there must be something he understands which is greater than all the money, all the power, all the guns and all the rhetoric that mainstream society wishes to validate itself by. There must be something for which he is willing to lay down his life for another that validates his existance!

The Vato Loco lives according to the same rules that govern all the worlds’ societies. Whether you look at what a Professor, a Minister, a Political Figure or anyone else does, the same things that make them tic and makes their world go-round, these are the same things that make a Vato Loco tic.

Think about it and analyze his world, and you’ll see that his society is but one more amongst the many, legit or otherwise!

The Last Vato

Hey man! I’m cool
What’s my onda? Where am I from?
What am I doing here in this barrio?
You ask a lot of questions
Don’t you know, Ese?
It’s cool. I’m just checking out the old Barrio
I left long ago before your time
I am one of the last Chicano’s of my time
Times were different than they are now
I don’t see much of my own here anymore
The Chicano must have died when I blinked
No! I don’t have familia here anymore
I don’t know anyone here now
They all moved away and had kids
Everything changes and there’s no stopping it
If I were to knock on any of these doors
I would see that the faces have all changed
The old Vato is dead and the Ruka went too
The old Pachuko left and got a job
I am a Veterano without any more roots
I was cut down like an old oak tree
This was my Barrio then, in another time
This was my stomping ground once upon a time
But since I left I can see it has all changed
I don’t see Vato’s and I don’t see Chuko’s here
I don’t see Cholos hanging around here either
Everyone I see now dresses exactly the same
The music has faded and now it is just a beat
It is now just the repetitious thump I hear
There is no more “ritmo” in between the thumps
And they all sound the same, except louder
I can’t tell one from the other without the lyrics
Now everything has to rhyme and offend the ears
It does not soothe like it used to back then
When we would all be moved by the “oldies”
When we all sang acapella on this same corner
I can still picture Anna and Maribel at the curb
Leaning up against the first lowriders in the world
I can see Eddie pull up with Chris riding shotgun
Richard is already parked and Arthur is getting ready
Hector and I are anxiously waiting for the rest of the girls
Anselmo is smiling as René turns the 4-track up
We were all in a newly started garage band nearby
It was an excuse to drink and we all knew it
We would get together at the drop of a hat
My old lady is no longer waiting for me to return
She was once so beautiful and so very young
The smile upon her lips still beckons me to her
She was a half-Chinese and half-Mexican ruka
She had enough inspiration for me to last a lifetime
Now she is gone and I don’t know where she is
And I know that she has already forgotten me
All my old familia is gone along with my memories
The music has faded and I can’t dance anymore
My dreams have all become muddied in the water
It is no longer clear as it had once been long ago
The scenery is still the same more or less I guess
I see the old buildings and they hint to that time
The graffiti and murals are beginning to fade
It gives me fragments of those old memories
I am here looking to recapture some of it
Before I crawl off to die somewhere far away
But at least with the taste of what once was
I am now but a faint relic extinct as the shadows
I can no longer hear the footsteps on the pavement
I can no longer hear the laughter of my “conjunto”
I have become deaf and blind in the absence
I am but a leftover unburied bone in the pile
My memories are no longer accurate in the lie
Yesterday can not be recaptured today or tomorrow
Dreams are the only reminders of another time
And even they have changed through the years
Just like everything else has changed around here
And I have no place to go for I can no longer fit
I am but a piece of a puzzle with rounded edges
I am the last of an era that cannot be compared
I am one of the last Vato’s to roam the old barrio
I hate to admit it but I have become an old relic
I am not able to fit in with the strange new crowd
I don’t recognize the landscape of this old barrio
I am out of place among you like a fish out of water
Or maybe it is just me that has changed in time
Trying to go back to a past that no one knows
And you and I do not even look alike anymore

For I am the Last of the Vato's from the Old Barrio!

VARRIO TEPA 13 106 STREET




TEPA TRECE 106 STREET

A.k.a. TEPATITLAN

FROM THE “UNINCORP” EAST AREA OF LENNOX

CLAIMING THE “WEST SIDE” SOUTH CENTRAL LOS ANGELES

TEPA’s ORIGINAL FOUNDING MEMBERS WERE THE FRANCO BROTHERS
BOXER, STRANGER, FRANK, SHORTY, JOKER

THE FRANCO BROTHERS WERE ALWAYS BEING CALLED THE TEPA GANG BECAUSE THEIR FAMILIA HAD DEEP ROOTS AND STRONG TIES TO THE TOWN OF “TEPATITLAN,” JALISCO (MEXICO); THAT’S THE REASON WHY THE 106 STREET CROWD THAT CHILLED AND KICKED IT ON 106 STREET TOGETHER WITH THE FRANCO BROTHERS BECAME KNOWN AS THE TEPA 106 STREET GANG, SO THAT’S HOW THE VARRIO NAME STARTED ON THE BLOCK.

THE ORGINAL BIRTHPLACE OF T13 WAS ON 106 STREET BETWEEN HAWTHORNE BLVD AND FREEMAN AVE.

THE CROWD ON 106 STREET WAS ALREADY AROUND SINCE THE CLASSIC TIMES BACK IN 1979, BUT IT WASN’T UNTIL THE EARLY 1980s, LIKE AROUND 1983/84 THAT IT BECAME ESTABLISHED AS A VARRIO.

THE ONE-O-SIXERS WOULD LATER KICK IT AT THE WHELAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPOT ON 105 AND FREEMAN, AND THEN LATER AFTER THEY MOVED DOWN TO 106 AND PRAIRIE, BUT IT WAS ALWAYS ALL ABOUT LA CALLE 106.

BACK THEN (EARLY-80s) THE CENTURY FREEWAY WAS STILL BEING BUILT, AND THE VARRIO JUST SOUTH OF TEPA’s ZONE WAS IMPERIAL 13 (JUST SOUTH OF IMPERIAL HWY, WHICH WAS THE BORDER BETWEEN HAWTHORNE AND UNICORP LENNOX), AND THAT’S WHO TX3 STARTED HAVING MAD PLEITO WITH BECAUSE IMP13 SHOT-IN-THE-BACK AND KILLED THE OGLS HOMEBOY BOXER (ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FOUNDERS OF TEPA, FROM THE “FRANCO BROTHERS”); THAT HAPPENED IN THE YEAR 1986; TEPA 13 WENT TO WAR FOR THAT HOMEBOY AND TOOK OUT IMP13..

BY THE END OF THE 80s DECADE, TEPA 13 HAD FIRMLY ESTABLISHED THEIR TERRITORY BETWEEN (N) CENTURY, (S) THE ONE-O-FIVE FREEWAY, (W) HAWTHORNE, AND (E) PRAIRIE.

BY THE 1990s TEPA 13 HAD GROWN BIG TIME; TEPA HAD GROWN SO BIG THAT ALL THRU THE 90s DECADE THE SPOT ON 105 & FREEMAN WAS LIKE A WARZONE BECAUSE TEPA 13 WAS GOING AT IT AND HOLDING IT UP AGAINST ALL THE MAJOR VARRIOS AROUND, LIKE (LNX) LENNOX 13, (LCV3) LOS COMPADRES VARRIO 3, (LWS) HAWTHORNE LITTLE WATTS, (LMS) HAWTHORNE LITTLE MOBSTERS, (L13) LAWNDALE 13, (WS18ST106) WEST SIDE EIGHTEEN STREET 106 CLIQUE, (WS’C13) CYCOS 13, AND (102 MTS) MUERTOS GANG 102 STREET.

TEPA TRECE CONTINUED TO MAKE THEIR NAME KNOW FAR AND WIDE, SO MUCH THAT BY THE NEW MILLENIUM (2Ks), TEPA 13 HAD GONE NATIONAL, ESTABLISHING CHAPTERS IN NORTHERN CALIFAS, AND OUT-OF-STATE IN OREGON AND WASHINGTON, AS WELL AS CHAPTERS IN MEXICO.

UP TO THIS PINCHE DAY, THE TEPA XIII 106 CONTINUES IN THE MIX OF ALL THINGS; LIKE STRAIGHT MANIAKS KAUSING TRECE TROUBLE!

TEPA 13 106 STREET CLIQUES:

OGLS ~ ORIGINAL GANGSTER LOCOS
TLS ~ TINY LOCOS
MLS ~ MIDGET LOCOS
BLS ~ BABY LOCOS
NLS ~ NIGHTOWLS LOCOS
WNS ~ WINOS
BRS ~ BROWN RASCALS

NOTE; TEPA ALSO HAD A BLACK HOMEBOYS SHORT LIVED CLIQUE KNOWN AS THE “OUTLAWS” THAT WERE AROUND FOR ONLY ABOUT A YEAR OR SO, BUT BECAUSE OF THE POLITICS OF BLACK VERSUS BROWN, AND THE HOMEBOYS COMING OUT OF LA PINTA DURING THOSE TIMES WHEN ALL WAS JUST BEGINNING TO GET REAL CRAZY IN THE EARLY 90s, THE OUTLAWS DIDN’T LAST AFTER THAT.. THE OUTLAWS CLIQUE HAD THE NEGRO HOMBOYS CROOK, LOW DOWN, LIL HIT MAN, DROOPY AND MELO, BUT AFTER THE BREAK DOWN ONLY CROOK REMAINED WITH THE HOOD., CROOK WAS THE FIRST BLACK VATO JUMPED-INTO THE TEPA GANG, AND HE REMAINED LOYAL TO THE ONE-O-SIX EVEN AFTER ALL THE ISSUES.

THIS HAS BEEN A SHORT HISTORY OF THE WEST SIDE TEPA’TITLAN ONE-O-SIX VARRIO

TEPA POR VIDA!

LOST IN THE WORLD OF KRIME

VARRIO HEAD HUNTERS RIFA




HEAD HUNTERS

HHS

WEST SIDE LOS ANGELES ORIGINALS

HANDSIGN: THE DOUBLE TRIGGER FINGERS ACHE

BANDANA: PURPLE, THE COLOR OF ROYALTY

BIRTHGROUNDS: FILIPINO TOWN LOS ANGELES
(1) RAMPART & BEVERLY, (2) DOUGLAS & TOLUCA

CLIQUES:
DUKES
RAMPART CRIMINALS
TINY MALOS
FRANKLIN BOYS
AVENUES
TINY KRIMINALS

THE FIRST HOMEBOYS THAT KICKED OFF THE HEAD HUNTERS GOT TOGETHER AROUND 1979 TO PLAY FOOTBAL ON THE CALLES AND PARKS; FROM THE SAME ERA LIKE THE DRIFTERS, ROCKWOORD AND PHANTOMS. HHS STARTED OUT AS A CLIKA DE HOMEBOYS OUT FOR THRILLS AND FRILLS, BUT WHEN THE VARRIO DIAMOND CHICOS WANTED TO CLIQUE THEM-IN IN THE VERY EARLY 1980s, WELL THE BATOS FROM HHS SAID CHALE AND THEN THE PLEITOS STARTED WITH DIAMOND, SO THAT’S WHEN HHS BECAME OFFICIAL BY HOLDING UP THEIR STREETS AND BECOMING A HOOD.

THE OG HOMEBOY “JOE” IS CREDITED TO HAVE BAPTIZED THEM WITH THE NAME OF HEAD HUNTERS. CAZADORES DE CABEZAS BECAUSE THEY WOULD GO OUT HUNTING FOR THEIR ENEMIGAS HEADS. NO MERCY, JUST PLAIN CRAZY. THOSE WERE THE TIMES.

HEAD HUNTERS TWO OG CLIQUES BEGAN AT THIS TIME; THE RAMPART CRIMINALS AND THE DUKES. THE RAMPART CRIMINALS EVENTUALLY FADED FROM THEIR AREA, BUT THE DUKES KEPT UP THEIR SMALL ORIGINAL NEIGHBORHOOD AROUND GLENDALE BLVD., COURT, DOUGLAS AND TOLUCA STREETS, WERE THEY REMAIN HOLDING UP THE DOUBLE ACHE TO THIS VERY DAY.

IN 1989 SOME OF THE HHS RAMPART CRIMINALS MOVED OUT TO FONTANA OUT IN THE INLAND EMPIRE. AND THERE THEY SET UP AND STARTED BANGING; AT FIRST THEY LANDED IN THE SOUTHRIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD OF SOUTH FONTANA, BUT BY THE VERY EARLY 90s THE HEAD HUNTERS HAD MOVED UP TO WEST FONTANA. IN FONTA IS WHERE THE HHS TINY MALOS CLIQUES WAS FORMED. THEIR ZONE IN FONTANA GOES FROM (E) REDWOOD, (W) POPLAR, (N) CERES, (S) SAN BERNARDINO. HEAD HUNTERS STARTED MAKING SERIO NOISE IN THE IXE, SO MUCH THAT IN 1996 THEY GOT AN INJUNCTION THROWN ON THEM; THE FIRST FOR ANY FONTANA GANG.

HEAD HUNTERS IN FONTANA HAVE REMAINED IN THE MIX EVER SINCE THEY FIRST ARRIVED, AND ARE STILL GOING STRONG; THIS MAKES THE HEAD HUNTERS THE LONGEST RUNNING EVER ESTABLISHED GANG FROM L.A. IN THE I.E.

DURING THE 1990s, HEAD HUNTERS ATTENDING CLECHA UP IN HOLLYWOOD, STARTED UP THE HOLLYWOOD ASSASSINS CLIQUE ON ARDMORE AVENUE. AND IN THE LATE 1990s OTHER HHS HOMEBOYS STARTED THE FRANKLIN BOYS CLIQUE IN FAR OFF WHITTIER. THE WHITTIER CLIQUE GOT HIT HARD BY LOCK UPS AND SHIT, SO IT’S MOSTLY GONE DEFUNCT BY NOW.

IN THE LAST DECADE OF 2K, THE HEAD HUNTERS HAVE ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES IN ORANGE COUNTY, SETTING UP CAMP IN THE CITIES OF ANAHEIM AND GARDEN GROVE. THE HHS CLIQUE IN GARDEN GROVE IS CALLED THE “AVENUES,” AND THE ONES IN ANAKRIME ARE THE TINY KRIMINALS CLIKA.

ALL THE DIFFERENT HOODS AND CLIQUES OF THE CAZADORES DE CABEZAS, NO MATTER WHERE THEY’RE FROM, THE I.E. OR O.C., THEY ALL CLAIM WEST SIDE L.A. IN ALLEGIANCE AND WITH RESPECTS TO THEIR HOMEGROUNDS; FROM WHERE THEY COME FROM!

BRING BACK THE OLD SPRAY PAINT STYLE FROM THE VARRIOS


Those 'spiral' letras the bato is hitting up right there...
let me tell you,...those were one of the very LAST new letra forms to come out.
And that was back in the early 90's.
I know cause I used to throw them too.
I aint seen that style of letras ANYWHERE since then.
Used to be in the old days, 60's, 70's, 80's,..homeboys were inventing new forms every couple of years. Those were great times for a true plaquero.

Today??

Man,...I aint seen no new letras in like 15 years holmes.

Think about that chet.
Thats unbelievable.

Its all gone wrong holmes.
Its a tragedy.
I dont see alot of care or respect in the lines today.
No more love for the artform.
No more development.
Its like the whole thing came to a screeching halt.
All I see are troche y moche rounded colored squares. Thats all.


I put alot of the blame on those taggers with their gacho ass scrawlings.
Once they came along and started infesting the walls in the 90's....that was it.
They changed the whole environment in the Varrios.

VARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS

.



Here’s a little something on San Diego’s “South East”
VARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS


Logan Heights proper is a combination of 2 communities, BARRIO LOGAN and MEMORIAL PARK, which together make up the entity known as LOGAN HEIGHTS

VARRIO LOGAN HEIGHTS has 5 different cliques that represent the Varrio to the fullest..

RED STEPS
LH30TA
LH33RD
LH13Ls
LHClika

And each of those cliques have their own distinct “Homegrounds”

(1) The first one is BARRIO LOGAN

N ~ Commercial Street (The Tracks)
W ~ Main Street
S ~ 32nd Street
E ~ Interstate 5

BARRIO LOGAN is synonymous with RED STEPS. So if you hear someone say BARRIO LOGAN or BARRIO RED STEPS, that’s what they’re saying.. They’re saying that they are from the barrio west of the 5 Freeway surrounding Bay Bridge Park, a.k.a. CHICANO PARK.

(2) The second is the LH30TA zone, which is synonymous with the area surrounding Memorial Park.. centered at 30th Street and Ocean View Blvd.

N ~ Commercial Street (The Tracks)
W ~ 28th Street
S ~ Interstate 5
E ~ Bancroft Street, and the 15 Freeway down through National Avenue

(3) LH33RD neighborhood lies down a barranca (small ravine area) on the northeast corner of Logan Heights.. in-between Bancroft Street and the 15 Freeway, running from north to south all along 33Rd Street.

N~ K street (cul-de-sac north of Imperial avenue)
W ~ Bancroft Street (ravine)
S~ Ocean View Blvd.
E~ 15 Freeway


(4) In-between .. (N) Commercial Street/The Tracks, (E) 28th Street, and (SW) Interstate 5.. is the proper “Logan Heights” defined zone on the maps. This zone is inhabited by everyone from LHTS (RS, 30TA, and 13Ls).

The LH’13 Locos are the only ones of the LH cliques which do not have a solid defined established neighborhood.. LH13Ls are simply from all over Logan Heights.. LH13Ls is rumored to have had some trouble being accepted as a bonafide LHTS clique in their beginning porque the rest of LHTS didn’t really consider them raised RS, 30TA or 33RD.. But 13Ls earned their respect, and they are now clearly a bonafide LHTS clique.

(5) Logan Heights “CLIKA”..
This 5Th Logan clique neighborhood is far away from Logan Heights proper.. LH’Clika is located in “EAST SIDE SAN DIEGO”.. LHC was set up by vatos from LHRS & LH3OTA in the Colina Del Sol neighborhood on the East Side.. thus making VLHts, San Diego’s only varrio to actually have a well established territory in two separate areas of the city.

N~ El Cajon Blvd.
E~ 54TH Street
S~ University Avenue
W~ Euklid Avenue


Note; All 5 cliques from LHTS get along with each other.. They don’t have pleito, even though they do compete with each other as to which is the baddest.. but for the most part they’re cool with each other.. in fact, Red Steps is said to be propping up Treinta y Tres, and bringing them back from the dead.

..

There used to be another clique from Logan Heights which was not part of VARRIO LHTS.. They were the Logan Heights “LUCKIES” from the triangular shaped neighborhood zone between Commercial, I-5 and 28th.. They were an independent and non affiliated clique that went by LH’LKS and Calle Veinte y Seis "LHC26LKS".. Circa 1960s to 1981/early 80s (?).. The ”LUCKYS are defunt now, but that’s where they were reputed to have been their stomping grounds.

.




KEEP IT HATE FREE!



VARRIO CHULA VISTA



VCV Varrio Chula Vista is the original HarborSide Varrio; and all other varrios in CV, came afterwards!

The Harborside Barrio goes from Palomar to L Street, and from 5th to Bay Blvd. In the old days it went all the way west to the Bayfront. VCV also includes the area north and west of Moss, which is called "Boal." VCV was born in the 1000 blocks of these two areas in the late 1950's.

VCV always been a smaller gang compared to their oldest and closest neighbors, Otay and OTNC, but they've always been in the mix and recognized by all around.

VCV got really deep in the 1980's, and used to hang out at the abandoned Duke Tomato plant and junkyard that was on the 1000 block of Colorado. The 1980's saw them expand north into the Navy duplexes between L and J Streets (700 and 800 blocks), and into most of the low income housing along and west of the Broadway corridor. By the late 1990's they began to disappear from their birth grounds in the 1000 blocks and from some of the areas west along Broadway. Policing and redevelopment hit them hard and shrank their numbers down. They got deep again for a while in the early-mid 2000's, but then they died down big time. But yet still again, in the last few years (2010/2011/2012) they have been on the rise again, making a comeback, staking claim and kicking ass.

..

Here's how the VCV cliques genealogy goes, as it was told to me:

1950s = the first originals from CV gang started out

1960s to early 1970s = CV Locos/CV Boys

1970s = VCV birth of the Grande Locos clique

1980's = Birth of the K Street Boys clique (inactive now)

1990's = Birth of the E Street and H Street cliques (inactive now)

2000's = Birth of the South Bay LS, GST LS, and NBLS cliques

..

-GSTLS- and -NBLS- where tagbangers that cliqued up with -VCV-

-GSTLS- used to be West Side G Block (WSGBK)

-NBLS- used to be Naughty Boys Klika, A.K.A. Nasty But Klassy (NBK)

There is also a clique of stoners/skaters/taggers that back up VCV.
They go by 700 Block (700BK).
