Simon City Royals sample page from book

Postby Jay Rock » October 16th, 2014, 10:26 pm

Since we on the topic of Royals....came across this interesting read, never knew Royals were the largest white gang in America in the 60s and 70s.....and these white boys were getting it in with the hispanic gangs and gaylords :ohhh: :shoot:

For the SCR’s, it all started back in 1952, four blocks west of Humboldt Park on the corner of Drake & Wabansia. This corner would forever be considered the ancient fatherland to all Simon City Royals everywhere. Also located on that corner was a quiet little park called Almira Simons Park. Who was Almira Simons and what wonderful historical thing did she do? Nothing.

In 1836, Almira’s east coast father and Joliet school teacher mother settled the wilderness that is now Humboldt Park. Her parents farmed the vast land and just like the naming of Jonesboro or Smithville, it may have been referred to as Simons City back in 1836. That’s why in 1916, when a suggestion was made by the local residents to build a park, Almira’s two daughters suggested it be named after their mother since she actually lived on the land before it turned into a sprawling city. Four years later in 1920, the Chicago Park District purchased the land and designated it Almira Simons Park. 32 years later, Simon City would take on a whole new meaning.

It was on this very spot of Drake & Wabansia in 1952 that two street gangs were born. One was called Simon City, taking its name from the park and its history. The other called itself the Fist City Royals. Together, the two gangs occupied the same neighborhood, even the same corner. They were allies from the start and six years later in 1958 on the sacred corner of Drake & Wabansia, they made the partnership official and merged into one gang. Over numerous vocal objections by members of both sides, they united and called themselves the Simon City Royals.

For the next seven years, the Simon City Royals fought to expand their small territory while the world around them was pushing in. Like all gangs, their number one enemy was the police. They also spent their time fighting off rival gangs like the Jokers, Belairs and Drakers. As Spanish immigration turned into a flood however, their Humboldt Park neighborhood began to change. The Simon City Royals began spending more of their time fighting with small bands of Latino kids, some of them with their own colorful gang names like La Hacha Vieja, La Primera, Latin Cobras, Latin Diablos, Latin Locos and the Spanish Kings.

The early 1960’s were a time of considerable consolidation with street gangs in Chicago. The city was about to go from having hundreds of gangs with dozens of members, to dozens of gangs with thousands of members. One block at a time, all over the city, larger gangs with multiple branches swallowed up or destroyed smaller neighborhood gangs. At first, the Simon City Royals shunned mergers or the idea of swallowing up smaller crews. Like all gangs, they believed they were better than everyone else and their members were the biggest, baddest and most feared in the city. Unlike most gangs however, the Simon City Royals of the 1960’s and 1970’s truly were.

From the beginning, they had the mentality of Spartan warriors or US Marines - ‘the few, the proud’. Their enemies on the other hand, often considered them freaks of nature. The SCR’s put quality over quantity when deciding who to accept as members. Most gangs would accept anyone that wanted to join, simply to expand their numbers. Some even forced innocent kids into joining out of desperation to grow the gang. In gang wars, like real wars, having superior numbers usually means victory. But as Julius Caesar, the ancient Greeks and Robert E. Lee, just to name a few, have all proven - being outnumbered isn’t as bad as it sounds. It’s the quality and mindset of the soldiers that makes the difference in battle. On the street, we call it ‘heart’.



The Royals knew that each member was a representation of the entire organization. If they had wimpy, dorky nerds as members, people would think they were all like that. For that reason, the SCR’s strictly enforced their membership rules and only let in the most gigantic, monstrous-looking guys that applied. During the 60’s and 70’s, if you were to see a Royal on the street, he would most likely be six-foot-four, 240 pounds and not afraid to single-handedly take on a half dozen enemies all by himself.

I used to wonder, ‘how do giant fat guys like that run from the cops or their enemies?’ The fact was, Royals didn’t run, ever, not from the cops and certainly not from their enemies. Like the Kamikaze pilots who had already accepted their deaths, the Royals fought like there was no way out, because for them, there wasn’t. Their rules demanded that they never run from an enemy and never deny their Royalty. In most gangs, if one of your members is caught by the enemy and they ask the kid if he’s in a gang, he’s going to say no. Why? Because he’s scared to death and if he admits he’s a member of an enemy gang, they’re going to beat or kill him.

Usually, denying it like that’s okay. After all, everyone did it. You just lived to fight another day. In the Simon City Royals however, denying your membership is a serious offense. Which brings me to another one of the SCR’s rules - the only way out is to die. There is no quitting or retiring. Once you’re a Royal, you’re a Royal for life. That entire mindset is what led to the coining of possibly the most notorious gang slogan in Chicago history, ‘Ain’t no Pity in Simon City.’ Other Royals’ slogans were ‘Cross is Boss’, a saying they shared with the Gaylords, ‘R World’, as in ‘this is Royals World, it’s ours’ and the one that always made me smile, ‘King killers, Queen thrillers.’

The original SCRs kept blue and black as the group’s colors. Their symbols were officially recognized as a crossed shotgun and cane and the playboy bunny with a bent ear. After joining the Folks Alliance in 1978, the bunny would have a bent right ear. Lastly, the SCR’s declared that ‘Royal’ officially stood for ‘Remember Our Young Aryan Leaders’. The amazing thing is that they were using the word Aryan at a time when only the American Nazi Party was using it. Even the White Power gangs like the Gaylords used the word ‘American’ instead of ‘Aryan’. Later, when the SCR’s officially shunned the WPO stance and began accepting members of all races, the word Aryan was changed to American. But that’ll give you an idea of where the Royals came from.

Their fearlessness, strict membership requirements and notoriously brutal and violent tactics on the street led the Simon City Royals to become the largest gang in Chicago and officially recognized by the United States government as the largest White street gang in America. Getting that growth started, in 1965 they merged with a gang half-way across the city called the Ashland Royals. It started as a war over the name ‘Royals’.

They agreed that the leaders of the two gangs would have a ‘fight to the finish’ to decide which gang would give up the name. By the end of the night however, with the leader of the Ashland Royals having won the fight, the two gangs agreed to merge into one. The Ashland Royals’ leader would become the overall President since he won the fight. In return, his group would adopt the name Simon City Royals. That put the Royals on par with the Gaylords, Vice Lords, Disciples, Latin Kings and Black P Stones, becoming one of Chicago’s six mega-gangs.

Immediately upon the merger, the Simon City Royals opened up two new branches in the territory controlled by the Ashland Royals. They opened a set at Henderson & Lakewood and another at Newport & Lincoln. The Simon City Royals suddenly had three large branches and a dominating presence in two completely different neighborhoods, West Humboldt and now Lakeview. For the next five years, the Royals existed in two different sections of the city, separate and unequal.



While the Drake & Wabansia Royals in Humboldt fought daily running gun battles in broad daylight against formidable foes like the Latin Kings and Imperial Gangsters, the Lakeview SCR’s settled into their nice neighborhood and slowly but surely built an empire. By 1970, just five years after the merger with the Ashland Royals, the Simon City Royals around Humboldt Park had been nearly murdered, beaten, shot, stabbed and arrested out of existence. The SCR’s birthplace of Drake & Wabansia, their fatherland, was finally starting to be overrun by Hispanic gangs. After countless deaths and years of war, the SCR’s were losing the war for West Humboldt.

Ironically, the Latin Kings and Imperial Gangsters have been fighting each other in a 40-year war over the same few bloody blocks ever since, with the IG’z retaining control throughout most of the history. In their defense, the DW Royals didn’t lose to the IG’z as much as they lost to the flood of Hispanic immigration. And they didn’t just pack-up and leave one day in 1970. The DW Simon City Royals held on and fought day in and day out until 1978.

With the Royals left to a major presence in just one neighborhood, the SCR’s moved their national headquarters from Drake & Wabansia to their newest branch in Lakeview, Paulina & Cornelia. Even though the Royals still had three branches in Lakeview and what was left of DW in Humboldt, they had basically lost one of their two neighborhoods. One would think that losing half your territory would be devastating. But the Paulina & Cornelia Simon City Royals were about to revolutionize the world of street gangs.

Leaders like Arab, Bimbo and Tuffy would transform the Royals from the smallest of the city’s mega-gangs into the largest gang in Chicago. As the Royals around Humboldt were vanishing, the Royals around Lakeview were flourishing. The two biggest reasons for the Royals’ success in this area are first, because the neighborhood was being hit with a much smaller and more manageable blast of Hispanic immigration. The area was getting its first taste of the Latino title wave and the gangs, drugs and violence that came with it, and they didn’t like it. The neighborhood kids, who were still overwhelmingly White, looked at the local White gang as their guardians, protectors and saviors.

That brings up the second reason for the Royals’ success in 1970, their national president Arab. I don’t know too much about Arab except he was a very likable guy and according to legend, he died for love. He had a constant presence in and around Lakeview High School. He was smart, honest, fair and fearless. He had a talent for recruiting the best of the best. And unlike most gangs in Chicago who preyed upon weak White kids, Arab insisted they be protected.

While Hispanic gangs like the Latin Eagles were making a sport out of jumping White kids in Lakeview, Arab and the Simon City Royals took it as their own sacred mission to protect them. They were like Robin Hood to the area residents. They were bandits, but they were good bandits. Noble qualities like these helped Arab give the SCR’s supreme control over all of Lakeview. Another quality that helped Arab was his uncanny ability to not only fight and beat opposing gangs in the area, but get the defeated armies to want to join the SCR’s afterward. Arab would invite them into the Royals’ nation with open arms. Some would say he demanded it.

By 1972, the Simon City Royals absorbed one block after another, and the ‘neighborhood tough guys’ that came with them, until their territory stretched from Lincoln to Racine and Irving Park down to Belmont. It was down on the Belmont Avenue border where the Royals’ rapid growth and expansion crashed into an immovable brick wall, the Hamlin Park Deuces. The Royals had spent the previous two years quadrupling the size of their territory. It was the SCR’s version of Manifest Destiny. “This is R neighborhood, R city, R World,” they would explain with the calmness of a serial killer.

‘Who did these little punks called the Deuces think they were?’ The Royals had been annexing one block at a time and Hamlin Park was across the street and next on the list. From day one, the Royals had been the aggressors. They were the conquerors and the Deuces simply tried to keep from getting wiped-out or pushed out of their own Hamlin Park stronghold. Little did any of them know back in 1972, but the 25-year war they started that summer would become one of the deadliest and longest-running gang wars in Chicago history.

Year after year, kids killed each other fighting to push the line one more block into the other’s territory. They killed and died for the right to stand out on the corners of Damen and Belmont or Lincoln and Belmont. It’s sad to think that after a decade of fighting over Belmont Avenue, the border never moved more than one block from the original dividing line. Like World War I, it was stagnant, bloody, trench-warfare where the front line moved in distances of feet rather than miles. Tragically, Chicago’s gang bangers don’t have trenches to take cover in. They die right out on the street.

In 1972, the Royals’ expansion stopped while they put all their efforts into fighting the Hamlin Park Deuces. As confident as they were when they started the war, the Royals suddenly found themselves outmaneuvered. While they most likely would have eventually won the war against the Deuces, there was no way they could beat the Deuces and their closest ally, the Latin Kings. The Royals and Latin Kings were no strangers. They had fought each other in the war for West Humboldt. Even though nobody on either side had any part in the first SCR/LK war, or were from either of the branches involved, both sides hated each other. In typical street gang fashion, they didn’t need a reason to go to war. A decade of unresolved, bloody warfare was plenty.

This war was the Paulina & Cornelia Simon City Royals against the Hamlin Park Insane Deuces. But the HP I2D’s called in back-up from their other branch a few blocks away at the projects. They were even referred to as the ‘Project Deuces’ because the I2D’s had complete control of the housing project on the busy corner of Damen, Clybourn and Diversey. They were now letting their Latin King allies hang out with them. It wasn’t long before the Kings became so numerous, they started their own branch at the exact same housing project. At first, it was friendly and both gangs got along well. The truth was, the Deuces needed the Latin Kings’ help in fighting off the Royals. Little did they know, 20 years later, the Latin Kings would challenge the Deuces for control of the projects and the two sides would go to war.


Everyone in the city saw it coming and openly wondered why the Deuces were letting the Kings take over. But put yourself in the Deuces’ position. What could they do? Tell the Kings they weren’t welcome anymore? At best, they’d lose their ally and slowly lose to the Royals. At worst, they’d find themselves in a war with not only the Royals, but the Latin Kings as well. They were stuck. At the same time, the Royals weren’t doing much better. They had one lone Royal branch, granted it was a huge branch, at war with two Deuce branches and one Latin King branch.

The only ally the Royals had in the area was located just three blocks east of Hamlin Park. It was the PBC’s, Paulina Barry Community. Passionate Deuce killers, the PBC’s were more than happy to see the Royals enter the picture. The PBC’s were fighting a losing war against the Deuces and ever since the Latin Kings started showing up, the PBC’s knew their days were numbered. Having the Royals around to make daily hits on Hamlin Park and occasionally kill a valuable Deuce leader, the PBC’s were rejuvenated. They went from defending their little territory like it was the Alamo to going on the offensive.

By 1974, Arab and his Royals had managed to hold off the Latin Kings, Deuces, Latin Eagles and everyone else that attacked them. Even though the SCR’s had stopped growing geographically, their numbers within Lakeview were skyrocketing. That is until a series of events over the summer of 1974 brought the Royals’ impressive growth to a screeching halt.

Everything changed one day when Arab was shot and killed by the Project Deuces. The shooter never claimed responsibility and no one ever stepped forward to say, “I knocked off the national President of the Simon City Royals.” Such a claim would immediately elevate the shooter to historical status, and put a price on his head. But none of that ever happened. It was clearly an assassination carried out by a well-disciplined, closed-mouth sniper. And the only gang that used professional snipers was the Deuces.

As the legend goes, Arab had fallen in love with a girl that lived in the Deuce Projects. Knowing it was suicide for a Simon City Royal to be there, Arab couldn’t stay away. While walking with no fear through the sea of enemy Deuces, a gun shot rang out and Arab was dead. It left the Royals reeling in agony. The pain would be short-lived, but at the same time, only the beginning of their suffering.

A popular Royal from Paulina & Cornelia named Bimbo took control of the Nation. He was well-known throughout Chicago’s gangs as a righteous guy. He reached out to gangs like the Gaylords, C-Notes, Popes and Insane Unknowns. Bimbo was incredibly successful in ending feuds and forging alliances. People just liked him. One reason for his success was his little brother Tuffy. Tuffy was wildly popular and seemed to have friends all over the city and in every gang. With Tuffy watching his back, Bimbo secured his grasp on the leadership and began expanding the Royals’ empire. His first step was establishing an official branch outside of Lakeview and West Humboldt.

For two years, unauthorized Royal branches had been popping up around the city, but they were all considered wanna-be’s. Bimbo not only opened up an official section, he actually hung out there personally to make sure it took hold. The new branch was at the corner of Leland & St. Louis and it was immediately successful. The Royals’ membership exploded and the SCR’s now had a minor presence in West Humboldt, firm control of Lakeview and now firm control of their newest neighborhood, Albany Park.

While Bimbo grew the Royals exponentially from Leland & St. Louis, his brother Tuffy held down what was still the Royals’ stronghold and national HQ, Paulina & Cornelia. It was a good time for the Royals until a few months later when Tuffy was shot and killed while standing on Paulina St. It was another unsolved murder and if you ask ten people, “Who killed Tuffy?”, you’re likely to get ten different answers. But everyone knew it was probably either the Deuces or Latin Kings. Regardless of who killed him, Tuffy’s death was another devastating blow to the Simon City Royals, not to mention his brother Bimbo.

For the next six months, Bimbo brought vengeance upon the Deuces and Latin Kings from the headquarters at Paulina & Cornelia. At the same time, the Royals’ newest branch in Albany Park was expanding so rapidly, it bumped into a small, recently-opened branch of none other than their arch-enemy, the Latin Kings. What came next was a third front in the SCR/LK war. There were now three completely separate branches of the Latin Kings fighting three completely separate branches of the Simon City Royals. It was a city-wide war and even though they were losing in West Humboldt, the Royals were winning in Albany Park and Lakeview.

The following year in 1975, the Latin Kings shot and killed Bimbo. Just like with Arab and Tuffy, Bimbo was so beloved even rival gangs like the Gaylords, Jousters and C-Notes showed up to his funeral to pay their respects. Now however, the Simon City Royals were in disarray. Their leaders were getting killed as fast as they could take command. The rank and file members were getting killed just as fast. The war with the Deuces at Hamlin Park and the city-wide war with the Latin Kings had taken many lives on all sides. The Royals had a power vacuum, and it came at the worst possible moment.


Against all the internal setbacks, murders of all their leaders and wars with a half dozen of the city’s most powerful gangs, the Simon City Royals had somehow still managed to constantly grow. And now, running blind without a leader, the Royals were like a mad dog being let off its leash. If the Royals ever lived the slogan ‘Ain’t no Pity in Simon City,’ it was during these brutal days of disorganized violence and murder.

Under Bimbo’s leadership, an official peace treaty had been made with the Gaylords. As usual, it was made for the sake of fighting the overall race war. In itself, that sounds harsh. But it’s no secret. The White street gangs had a front row seat on society’s experiments. They knew that political alliances were only so strong. An alliance like skin color was more than enough reason to bury the hatchet and try to get along. Immediately after Bimbo’s murder at the hands of the Latin Kings however, the Gaylords inexplicably killed a Simon City Royal at a party. His name was Wizard and it started the war with the Gaylords all over again. Right after the Gaylords killed Wizard, they also shot and killed Larkin, the President of the entire Insane Popes Nation.

The Popes were allies of the Royals, one of the Royals’ only allies, and the two gangs both found themselves leaderless at the same time. Overnight, the Royals and Popes forged an unconditional brotherhood and fought together. The Popes lashed out at the Royals’ enemies - the Latin Kings, Deuces and Unknowns. And the Royals opened up additional fronts by declaring war against the Popes’ enemies - the Gaylords, C-Notes, Jousters, Playboys and Freaks. Suddenly, the Royals were being attacked on all sides and involved in ten major wars when you include the Latin Eagles and IG’z. Luckily, their alliance with the Popes helped even the playing field. The Popes had 800-1,000 hard core members at this point, a bit more than the Royals did. The alliance not only helped the Royals survive, but once again against all odds, they flourished.

By the end of 1975, the Simon City Royals had absorbed hundreds of disappointed Popes who were frustrated by the lack of leadership after Larkin died. Other new members, along with the Popes who switched to Royals, caused the SCR’s to quadruple in size over the course of six months. Growing pains and the rapid increase in membership created a whirlwind that would leave the Simon City Royals virtually leaderless for the next five years. What was once the strictest requirements for membership had now become an open invitation to anyone who was big, tough or crazy. Every day, more and more people simply proclaimed themselves Royals.

Arguments and power struggles led to splits and break-aways all over the place. Unhappy members broke off from the main branches and started up new chapters. Sometimes the new sections were accepted and officially recognized, sometimes they weren’t. When the dust settled only a few short months after Bimbo and Larkin’s murders, the Royals had branched out all over the north side. Some of the new, officially authorized branches included Southport & Fullerton, Albany & School, Drake & Wolfram, California & Fletcher, Farwell & Clark and Central Park & Wilson.

Many gang experts insist that the Simon City Royals’ membership peaked in the late 60’s. In this author’s opinion, it was starting at the beginning of 1976 and continuing for the next few years that the Royals were at their peak. And if there was ever a time when they were in fact the largest gang in the city of Chicago, it was now. By the end of 1976, things had settled down for the Royals. Even though they still didn’t have an undisputed national leader, they had many capable branch presidents. Each of the ambitious local leaders tried to take control of the empire, but none of them seemed to have what it took to unify all 12 Simon City Royal branches. Gang bangers are rebellious by nature. They rebel against authority, any authority, out of pure instinct. Once set free from the authoritarian controls of a national headquarters, the individual SCR branches were in no hurry give up their new-found freedom.

From 1976 to 1980, the Royals were literally running wild. Each of the individual branches seemed to function independently from each other. One thing that never even came close to happening was a civil war. Royals never fought Royals. They stuck together and backed each other up no matter what. Instead of recognizing a national president, it was easier to leave it in dispute and just take care of business in your own way. As dysfunctional as it was, this loose confederation of Royal branches stumbled into the 1980’s still intact and still one of the largest gangs in the city.

After burying so many soldiers and leaders, it was the Royals’ enemies that were laying dead in the streets now. In addition to their age-old wars with the Latin Kings, Insane Deuces and Latin Eagles, new deadly wars were started. Central Park & Wilson went to war with the Puerto Rican Stones, a division of the Black P Stones. Albany & School went to war with every Gaylord branch in the city. Farwell & Clark went to war with all the Latin King branches around the ‘North Pole’. And someone started additional wars with the Spanish Lords, Latin Brothers, C-Notes and a half dozen others. But most notoriously, Southport & Fullerton went to war with the Insane Unknown Kings.

As the story goes, one of the SF Royals, a former Palmer Street Gaylord named Dead Eye, was getting too friendly with the national leader of the IUK’s, Mr. Kapone. Either as punishment for being a Gaylord or for his friendship with the IUK leader, Dead Eye was given the choice of taking a fatal violation and literally dying or killing Mr. Kapone. Dead Eye chose to assassinate his friend, the head of the entire Insane Unknown Kings Nation. Along with a fellow SF Royal named Lil” Kool, they invited Mr. Kapone to a meeting to discuss a peace treaty. Once he arrived however, the Royals killed him. The IUK’s immediately responded by killing an SF Royal named Bull Dog. From there, it was a bloodbath.

Never-ending convictions for murder and battery had taken their toll on the SCR’s. Not only that, some of the activities a few of the branches were up to while running around without a national leader had come to light. It was during this 5-year period that certain Simon City Royals had, according to the Chicago Police Department, put together the largest and most organized burglary ring they’d ever seen. Dozens of Royals were scooped up in the undercover investigation and thrown into prison.

Even though the organized burglary ring was confined to a couple of the branches, petty theft and the art of robbing drug dealers were rampant throughout almost every Royal branch. Because of all the murder and the burglary convictions, by 1978 the SCR’s had created a presence in the Illinois prison system. Being at war with four of the six largest gangs in the city however, insured that it was no picnic. To combat their overwhelming enemies behind bars, the Royals made new friends. Most notable was a friendship that was generated with surprisingly enough, an all-Black gang called the Black Disciples.

Why not. Every White gang in the city except the Popes hated the Royals. SCR’s weren’t WPO. Why not embrace a hand in friendship if it’s reached out to you. To the old school Royals, this was unheard of. The Royals didn’t need friends. They didn’t need anybody, especially not some Black gang from the far south side. That brings the second major incident that happened at this time.

One day in 1978 behind the bars of the Illinois prison system, the Folks Alliance was born. One of the original founding gangs was none other than the Simon City Royals. To show how tight their friendship with the Black Disciples was, the SCR’s were the first non-Disciple gang in the alliance. Joining Folks however, made many SCR’s sick. For one thing, the Latin Eagles and Imperial Gangsters had murdered too many of their brothers to just shake hands and make nice. For another thing, the alliance would only end one war, with the Eagles. It would create however, no less than 11 new wars.

The Simon City Royals suddenly found themselves at war with gangs they’d never met before, like the Mickey Cobras, Warlords, Latin Counts, Bishops, Noble Knights, Twelfth Street Players, Cullerton Boys, and strangest of all, the South Side Popes. Luckily, most of these gangs were from far-off places. But Chicago’s a small world when you’re a gang banger. They knew they’d be running into all of them eventually.

When you think about it though, what choice did they really have? All of Chicago’s gangs were dividing up and joining one of the two alliances. There was no way the Simon City Royals could have put the past aside and joined the People Alliance. 9 of the 10 wars they were currently fighting were against People gangs. The second option was to remain independent like the C-Notes did. They were the only notable gang in Chicago that didn’t join one of the two alliances and they paid dearly for it.

It was in 1980 that a new leader emerged that seemed to be able to unite the entire Simon City Royal Nation. His nickname was Dillinger, but his brother and friends affectionately referred to him as Toddy. Once again, the Royals were being led by a team of brothers. And once again, the Royals became organized. Unfortunately, it only lasted two short years. Around 1983, Dillinger was gunned down and killed by the Royals’ bitter enemy in Albany Park, the Puerto Rican Stones. At the same time, another well-known Royal named Spooky was also killed. The Royals were paying a heavy price for being on the front line of the Folks-People war.

Remarkably, the Simon City Royals were more than able to keep pace with the rest of the city and the escalating violence around them. In a period where most gangs were moving from beatings and clubbings to gun play and murder, the Royals were ahead of the game. They not only escalated their level of violence, they also elevated the Gaylords to their number one enemy.

In 1981, the ABO’s, Avers Boys Organization, a branch of the Simon City Royals, killed a KP Gaylord named Wizard on the tracks behind Kilbourn Park. In response in 1983, the Gaylords returned the favor by murdering two Royals, G-Man and Rotten. Immediately after, the Koz Park SCR’s killed a Lawndale & Altgeld Gaylord named Spy. The following year, the GL’s killed a Koz Park Royal named Casper. In response, the Koz Royals shot and killed another KP GL on the tracks behind Kilbourn. And right after that, the ABO’s shot and killed a Cleveland Gaylord named Slick. The Gaylord-Royal war was suddenly turning into one of the bloodiest gang wars in the city.

They still probably are the largest "white" gang in America based on how many of them are still active in the South alone. A lot of those white prison gangs like the AB aren't all that deep and they're telling on each other and leaving that shit all the time. Not to mention the vast majority of those guys only bang behind bars

Like most gang books its an interesting read but info is off and a little bias but the writer was in fact a Royal so go figure........

G-Man and Rotten had their throats slit in 94 or 95. An those Royals that were claimed to be killed by the GayLords were just a fraction of how many we really bodied an surprised young Fritzy boy who had his brains bashed in with a baseball bat......

In 2006 karma came to the Royal Mike Heins aka Psycho R shortly after returning to the streets after serving time for killing14yr old Spy.

"God Forgives, GayLords Don't!"

Since your not from Chicago or the midwest why do you think your opinions on subjects you know NOTHING about is relevant???????

Would be like me going in the Down South section and talking about Bs an Cs when I know nothing bout the area or the gangs within them.

You see how dumb you look????

Oh wait here comes another retarded reply :lol:

Wasn't on no approval type shit just wanted to see if your reply was Mighty. To me skin ain't an issue but I ain't been in every mans shoes. So I can't expect people to reciprocate that. Not all Fins will look past my skin and see the Light but the ones that do I extend my 5.
