Qvole. Sometimes you will see homies with 1939 tats or see WF1939 placas and what not. This is because this was the year that the Los Angles Times Newspaper printed an article about the "White Fence Gang Murders". It wasnt an official starting year or anything like that, but very significant to the older homies. The origins go back to the 1920s with La Purrisima Church. They were calling themsleves La Purissima Crowd, then later on The Fence/Lil Fence, and finally White Fence. Peace

This is what I put together a while back.

In the 20s, Boyle Heights was populated by Anglos, Armenians, Jews, Italians and Japanese. Many new Mexican immigrants migrated to California and some of them found their way into communities like Boyle Heights which is in East Los Angeles. The Mexican section of the Boyle Heights, which was very small, was bounded by 4th Street to the north, Whittier Blvd to the south, Euclid Ave to the west and Lorena St to the east. It was a very close knit community. Everybody knew eachother from the neighborhood and almost every Mexican family attended the local catholic church which was called La Purissima. La Purissima Church was the heart and focus point of the community. It not only served as a spiritual center but as a social center aswell. The leaders of the Church sponserd an athletic club to foster brotherhood and friendship among the Mexican/Chicano minority members within the community.

During the 1920s and 30s there was alot of rascism and violence towards Chicanos and Mexican immigrants in the Boyle Heights area. School aged children were regularly harrased and bullied by members of the larger ethnic groups. Working men did not have the ability to defend thier children while away from the home and most Police at the time did not care what happened to "lil mexican kids". The younger boys in the community decided to form a self protection group which would serve as escorts to and from school for their younger brothers and sisters. This group became known as Lil Fence or The Fence . The name had a dual meaning. Many of the houses in the "Mexican" section of Boyle Heights had White picket Fences along the front portions of homes and walkways plus the City of Los Angles erected a long row of White Fences along Whittier Blvd. Also a Fence is both sybolic and practical as a means of self protection.

The Fence began to become a presence on the street corners of Boyle Heights. There were many clashes and bloodshed through out the streets of Boyle Heights during these times. The original group or "OGs" were very succesfull in assuring that no children would become victims of random acts of violence at the hands of other ethnic groups. As time passed they began to rival with other chicano groups that sprouted up in various parts of Los Angeles. Some of the other "clubs" had names like Alpine St, East Side Clover, Primer Flats, Clantone, Diamond St, and Hoyo Maravilla.

During the next couple of years White Fence slowly moved from self protection group, to aggresive barrio gang. By 1939 The Los Angeles Times was writting articles about the "White Fence Gang" which murdered 2 males and left thier bodies along Whittier Blvd. White Fence was one of the barrios in Los Angeles to activley partcipate in the Zoot Suit Riots and target marines and sailors that invaded the barrios to victimize "Mexicans " in "Zoot Suits" who were deemed foreigners and unpatriotic. This was from 1942-43. White Fence is still a very active barrio and is well respected in the streets and prison system. Many things have changed in the neighborhood since the early days in the 1920s till now. The neighborhhod, WF, has been featured in many movies, books, documentaries, vidoes etc. Much of the modern "gangster style" (Dress, Graffitti, Slang, Lowriders) originated in the White Fence barrio. White Fence has other clicks in Hollywood, Bell Gardens, Alhambra, San Gabriel Valley, Las Vegas, El Paso and Florida. I was a very active member of White Fence The Hole Locos during the late 80s and early 90s. I believe the initial intentions were a very positive and necesarry move, although I can no longer consider myself an active member due to the continous senseless violence that plagues the barrio and other barrios and ghettos in this world. I am not attempting to glamourize the hood or gangbanging but present an accurate picture of real and true barrio history.

The tinies moved from the Eastside to the Westside and WS started between 74 and 76. The Westside Tinies hung in Tiny Alley near Echo Park and also a tall hill in an industrial area that reminded them of the Eastside's Blueberry Hill which the Westside named (their new hill) Blueberry Hill also. The locos came out of this and spread to Hollywood.

I was a very active member of White Fence The Hole Locos during the late 80s and early 90s. I believe the initial intentions were a very positive and necesarry move, although I can no longer consider myself an active member due to the continous senseless violence that plagues the barrio and other barrios and ghettos in this world. I am not attempting to glamourize the hood or gangbanging but present an accurate picture of real and true barrio history.

orale gibby, i just checked in here homie. i hardly come up in here anymore pero as far as hawaiian garras goes, they been around for a long time. so has my varrio in that area and from what i understand it's been on with artesia and the garras from day one. i remember a old veterano from my hood, joe castillo (r.i.p) telling me about sh-it that was jumping off back in the late 50's between artesia and hawaiian gardens and up to this day its still going on....
