I would like to know to any gang members or ex-gang members at what age did you really start to rep your gang and put in work? For me it was age 12, when I started to slang and ride on other gangs.

i did my first dirts in 1979 but that was not for the set lolol my hood was full of white boys back in those years i remember compton as a nice suburn ,it was in 1985 that i got jump in the set 86 was the year of my first victim may god bless him and his family ,87 was the year i went loco got busted ,88 was violent i started kick boxing competitions won few fights ,89 got busted and decided to change my life i started boxing on a pro level and went to thailand ...90 was all about money and boxing ...91 92 93 boxing ,army and travel 94 back in the hood 95 ,96,97,98,99,00 got busted over a murder i didn't have nothing to do with ,gang unit described me ass an og from southside who was slangin'crystals that the youngster did some killings for me ... they found a shot gun in my house and filled a false expertise report that my shotgun was used in a walk by,my lawyer did a 5 counter expertise and got me out ... now i have enuf of l.a because once you were labeled as a gangmember whatever you do in your life it will stick to your ass ,and if i stay in my hood and them youngster kill someone wich is comon ..then the popo will just take their majic jackson ass gangfile and find a nigga that match the description like a magician take a rabit out of a hat ....

Hey yo, please remember this is a public board and a few crimes have no statue of limitations. Ip addresses are easily tracked. God forgives a lot easier than men. Peace.

Man Alonso, why is it about the neighborhoods ? Arent there gangs that are not based in territory ? Like i understand a gang by a group of people armed that identify themselves under one name, couldnt there be a gang formed by people from different neighborhoods going through Los Angeles and without a territory ?

KIR !

bein real aint bein rude BG...the youngsta made a stupid statement (my opinion maybe)...yea i was young too but i would give my life at this point to have had someone step to me with a reality check about my thoughts when i had my chest poked out and thought i was hard at age 13..woulda saved me a whole lotta pain
when i see a youngsta in my hood that is tryna get into the game i check him...i thump that nigga in the chest til he beg me to stop...i do it every time i see him...and will continue to do so...some get the message and some dont...i know all too well that not everyone can be saved and some will get harder and harder everytime i push but for every one that gets harder there are 4 that get wise and find somethin else to do with their lives
its my job as a big homeboy to keep it real and let these youngstas know that aint shit good about bangin...i aint finna pump they heads up and have them roll with me...what kinda nigga would that make me?

one mo time baby-freeze...read a book nigga and stop dreamin about hood fame

you want respect??? go to school...get good grades...graduate...get a job...then help others that are just like you right now
i don't care where you are from...who your sisters are...who your brothers are and mostly i don't care what you THINK your brothers could or would do to me youngsta...man up and wake up nigga...this ain't a game boy...this is life...you need to be thankful that someone has taken the time out to tell you the real
anyone can "bang" online homie...just another cyber clown if you ask me...get your education...form a complete and proper sentence and THEN come holla my way...
you ain't no gangsta nigga...you a baby...and you need to get yo mind right

dont think u anythng special lil loc
cuz theres plenty of us, that grew up the same situation
whether you on the blue team or the other side
i was BORN in this drama too cuhz
my whole family is in this

u lost ure mom & dad?

i never had mine, i grew up group home to group home, homeless, and livin with homegurlz of mine, my youth was rough too
cuz mama aint love me, and i hardly knew my father, never spent time w/ him

now im a grown-ass man
finally making a change

i had respect at your same age
cuz im from a notorios family, but dont think u special cuz u claimin
at a young age, it aint nothin to be proud of
i look back each day and think, damn i wish there was a better way

you remind me so damn much of myself
that i could go on and on for days, tryna convince u to get right

but i cant judge you, so ce safe lil homie

How do you go to sleep knowing you took someone elses gift of life just so you could prove a stupid point of how tough you and your set is?

who said anythang about taking a life? and to further address your question rarely is a gang related murder simlpy a way to "prove a stupid point of how tough you and your set is"...nearly all murders are senseless...in every one that occurs someone is left behind in pain...but in these streets it's all about survival and a good 75% of the killing that goes on in the hood you will never see on tv or in the paper...because it is G killin G...a game of survival...i don't aim to justify it in any means i just thought you could use a little bit better understanding

I can only hope all the lil homies on my block and in my hood listened to me when I told 'em to stay outta trouble since I could tell they look up to me.
This goes out to Devaughn, Chevon, Zaire, Ladarian (aka Duke) and Nigel -- STAY IN SCHOOL!!

i started saggin at the age of 11, despite the numerous amount of warnings and beatings from my mom's but, i only pointed the finger to my step dad who was slangin and bangin at the age of 40. i told her make him stop and i'll stop. of course it didn't. i was courted on the hood in 89
at 12 and so goes the story up until 2001. that's almost half of my life
waisted. a dead homie aint brought nothin but more death, and sorrow to his own household. now i belong to TO THE GOD OF THE LIVING!!!
