I hope it helps give you a little
knowledge of the basics on gangs.

more people, male or female, who interact
among themselves to the exclusion of others.
• They have a group name.

"Bloods and Pirus"
• In 1972, some Centennial High School youth in the City of Compton from Piru
Street fought Crip gang members who were expanding throughout South Central
Los Angeles.
• The Pirus beat the feared Crips that day.
• In their honor ever since, Black gang members from Compton who were not
Crips referred to themselves as Pirus.
• Other Black gangs (many of whom were already in existence for years) who
did not become aligned with the Crips, became known as Bloods.
• Bloods will usually wear red, but not always, for instance Limehood Pirus are
known to wear green.
"Crips"
• This gang was founded about 1968 by Raymond Washington and his
crime partners from the East Side (of Interstate-110) in South Central
Los Angeles.
• Washington originally started up a gang called the "Baby Avenues",
but after he got into a beef with another member, he decided to start his
own gang called the "Crips".
• By 1971, Stanley "Tookie" Williams from the West Side joined
Washington and the "Crips".
