The Black Guerrilla Family Prison Gang

The Black Guerrilla Family Prison Gang

The Black Guerrilla Family was founded by George Jackson, a former Black Panther and excellent orator who rallied inmates by speaking about the system's injustice to prisoners, especially black inmates. He vowed to form an organization that would support his imprisoned people like a family and become a vanguard in the coming revolution against the U.S. government.

Sensitive Needs Yards (SNY) Gangs

Dropouts, jail informants, child molesters, and other "softies" segregated in the Sensitive Needs Yards (SNY) of California prisons are forming gang sets of their own. Unencumbered by the big four prison gangs that control the main yards, they use their criminal skills and the power of intimidation of their new dropout gang.

Confessions of a Teenage Vandal

I find it hard to be too stern with teenage pranksters. Some say most of the best cops could have gone either way in their youth. I don't know about that, but I'm truly grateful to that good Firestone sheriff's deputy.

America's Cage War Against Radical Islam

Our Judeo-Christian culture has been challenged in the arena of global conflict. We're locked in the "ultimate fighting cage" of war, a place we've been before. We're in a fight against extremist terrorism, and this isn't the first round.

Gangsters in Blue: Corrections

Gangsters in Blue: Corrections

When inmates and gang members see cops acting like convicts, they tend to react to them like they do other convicts and gangsters. What little respect that might remain is lost. What little restraint that might have been practiced is loosed. The exercise of lawful authority becomes personal, vindictive and cause for retribution.

Working Solo at Ground Zero

Working Solo at Ground Zero

What is it going to take before police administrators double up these cars? There is no sane reason to send young cops out in solo units in areas like Compton's ground zero.

Booby Traps: Death by Trick or Device

Booby Traps: Death by Trick or Device

In recent years, attacks against police officers have increasingly become sneaky ambushes rather than direct confrontations. They may involve improvised destructive devices. A few punk gang members or conspiracy nuts armed with the "Anarchist Cookbook" can cause a very bad day for law enforcement.

Hells Angels: Taking Away Their Toys

Hells Angels: Taking Away Their Toys

When you plan a raid of Hell Angels outlaw motorcycle gang locations for felons, drugs, and guns, don't assume you'll encounter good old boys who ride bikes as a hobby and don't mean to hurt anyone.

LAPD's CRASH vs. LASD's OSS

LAPD's CRASH vs. LASD's OSS

You don't become a gang expert overnight. You don't become qualified to testify in court in just a couple of years. LAPD rotated its officers in and out of CRASH gang units and station areas, but the OSS gang deputies remained in OSS and LASD stations for years, allowing them to develop greater, more complete expertise.

Angels and Angel Dust

This wanton disregard for others including the innocent children who must live in a gang household is like the twisted sickness that causes arsonists it start uncontrolled fires even when their own home and family might be consumed.

Going Beyond Suppression Patrols To Eradicate Gangs
Gang Members Practice Their Skills

Gang Members Practice Their Skills

One at a time each of the three targets got out of the vehicle, walked in a big circle around the McDonald’s, went inside, only to return to the vehicle with a small drink. Then the next target did the exact same thing. Finally the third did the same. In tactical police terminology this is a clue that they were casing the McDonalds before robbing it.

Oldie But Baddie: El Monte Flores Gang

The fleeing felon was named Richard Rodriguez, and he had a two-inch-high tattoo of "EMF" on his face under his lower lip and a large "Flores" tattooed across his neck. I'll bet those tattoos hurt more than that alleged kick.
