HERE'S A LINK ABOUT THE OUTLAW LOCO BLOODS CATCHING BODIES IN ALBANY PARK
Five alleged members of an Asian street gang were ordered held on bond Friday, charged with the beating death of another teenager.
All five were charged as adults in the murder of Dave Torres, 17, who died Thursday after the assault Wednesday outside an Albany Park neighborhood fast-food restaurant.
Officials said the teens are members of the Outlaw Loco Blood Gang, a Cambodian gang.
But they differed on whether Torres, of the 4400 block of North Magnolia, was a gang member. Chicago police said there was no evidence he was, while the Cook County state's attorney's office said he may have been a member of either the Crime Busters gang or the AKHRO gang.

NOW LET THIS KNOWLEDGE ABOVE MARINATE, BECAUSE IT GETS EVEN DEEPER BELOW....
WHO REMEMBER THE 1993 CHICAGO GANG PEACE SUMMIT WHERE THE CRIPS AND GD'S UNITED UNDER THE FOLKS NATION FROM THE ADVICE OF THE GD CHAIRMAN LARRY HOOVER HIMSELF? YEAH, READ UP ON IT:
A major "coup" for the GD gang occurred in the fall of 1993. In October the GDs organized a "peace treaty summit meeting" in Chicago, bringing in Crips from all over the continental USA, as well as a lot of GD's and sympathizers to the GD "cause". The year 1993 would therefore signal the year in which "Crips" would align themselves into a national gang alliance system with the "Folks" (particularly GDs). Today, "Crips" and "Folks" are aligned in the national gang alliance system. It was not a hard allegiance to make: both Crips and GDs wear "blue" colors. As this initial alliance system developed and spread nationally, in local communities big and small, and inside correctional institutions everywhere, it basically forced the "Bloods" to align themselves with the "People" or "Brother" gang alliance system, by default in terms of what the power struggle had left them with: a choice of necessity, not convenience.
http://books.google.com/books?id=RyMwvg ... &q&f=false
HERE GO THE VIDS OF THE SUMMIT, EXPLAINED:
In 1993, as a result of Crips meeting with Folks, (most of which were Gangster Disciples) at a Chicago "gang peace treaty" summit meeting sponsored by the political arm of the Gangster Disciples, the Crips became allied with Folks. This created a national gang alliance system and forced Bloods to make allies with People gangs.

LOS ANGELES GANG ATTEMPTS TO TAKE OVER CHICAGO STREETS
By Clark Staten, ENN Editor
Chicago,Il. (ENN)-- Chicago gang crime specialists are reporting that members of the "Crips" street gang, from the Los angeles area, are attempting to take control of at least one neighborhood here. Police insiders say that several recent raids have revealed a "new and different type of criminal element" on Chicago's West side.
A recent arest of a burglar, on Chicago's West side, resulted in his revealing to police the location of a cache' of automatic weapons and military fragmentation grenades. Also confiscated was a quantity of liquid PCP (Angel Dust/Animal tranquilizer). Reportedly, the weapons and drugs belonged to a member of the Los Angeles based "Crips" street gang. A Chicago Police intelligence officer, who asked to remain anonymous, reported that an increase in the quality and quantity of "rock cocaine" or "crack" can be attributed to an "invasion from the West Coast". Chicago Police had previously reported that there was very little "crack" available for sale in Chicago.
"Street people" in certain West side neighborhoods have confided that "there are bloods from out of town" who have attempted to intimidate and control given areas where drugs are sold. Several recent outbursts of violence and "drive-by" shooting have reportedly been perpetrated by unknown "gang types", who are not associated with any known Chicago gang. One friendly neighborhood resident told this reporter, "them brothers is from LA-LA land...you know... out West". "They's bad boys...that group...they kill you soon as look at you", he concluded.
A recent raid called "Operation Hammerlock", which was carried out against members of the Chicago "Vice Lords" street gang resulted in the arest of more than sixty (60) youths and adults and confiscation of numerous cars, houses, and weapons. This raid resulted in the further fragmentation of traditional control of neighborhood "retail drug sales". At least one Chicago intelligence analyst has hypothesized that the decline of certain Chicago gangs has lead to the a void that is being filled by Los Angeles based gangs.
He points out that many Chicago street gangs were frequently a "loosely affiliated relationship of convenience and self defense" and that they were under no centralized authority. "The Crips are another matter entirely...they are ruthless and will stop at nothing to conduct their business", he offered. "We can expect the level of violence to increase even further...if `the Crips' continue their effort to control Chicago's market in drugs and weapons", the wary expert added. "If I lived in Iowa City, or Boise, or Kansas City, I would also be extremely worried...the gangs will be there soon", he concluded.

AINT HAVE ENOUGH YET? CHECK IT OUT JOE:
http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1991 ... rs-suburbs
Chicago police and the new gang crimes unit of the Cook County sheriff`s office are investigating whether the Crips street gang of Los Angeles is trying to set up a drug network in Chicago and its suburbs, officials confirmed Friday.
``We are attempting to determine whether there is an organized initiative or just isolated attempts by individual Crips,`` said Capt. Allan Taylor, commander of the sheriff`s unit. ``But make no mistake about it: They`re here.``
Word of a possible incursion by the notorious West Coast gang first surfaced publicly on Thursday, when Chicago Police Cmdr. Bob Dart told city aldermen that his gang crimes unit had detected evidence of possible Crips activity in two north lakefront neighborhoods and 13 suburbs.
That statement came as a surprise to police detectives who battle gangs in the suburbs most likely to be affected, towns such as Evanston, which borders the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago where Dart said Crips have been located.
``It`s news to us. We haven`t seen any evidence of Crips,`` said Evanston police Detective Carlos Mitchem. ``We`d know, because some of our gangbangers would tell us when they got arrested. They`d be complaining about another gang moving in on their area.``
Another Evanston gang detective, asked if he had heard anything about Crips in the suburbs, replied, ``Yeah, on the news.``
``Maybe (Dart) has intelligence on this that we don`t,`` Mitchem said.
``If so, I wish he would share it with us.``
Detectives in the northwest, west and south suburbs reported the same thing, although gang officers in far northwest suburban Elgin said Crips or their rival Bloods occasionally cruise through town on reconnaissance missions.
``They come in looking to see what opportunities are available, who has control of the drug market and whether they have the ability to take over,``
said Elgin police Sgt. Scott Davis of the unit for special assignments.
``We jump on it right away when we identify them as a Crip or Blood. We shadow them to the point where they leave,`` Davis said. ``I don`t think they want the heat.``
Davis, who said the last reported sighting of a Crips member was about six months ago, said that the gang has not tried to recruit in Elgin and that he does not see that happening in the future. What the gang members are interested in, he and others said, is expanding their drug network.
That prospect is what concerns Taylor of the sheriff`s police, who fears the Crips may be trying to set up a pipeline to sell in Chicago the crack cocaine they make in Los Angeles.
Taylor and his Chicago counterparts have been investigating the Crips question for about a month, he said. He and Dart declined Friday to detail which 13 suburbs may be involved, although sources said the investigation centered on suburbs in the north and west.
Asked why detectives in Waukegan, Evanston, Skokie, Maywood, Aurora, Hoffman Estates and elsewhere have not reported Crips activity, Taylor said they may not have detected it.
`Sometimes you get so taken up with problems caused by the gang you know the best that you don`t bother to look for evidence of involvement of other groups. You just assume it`s your problem gang,`` Taylor said. ``Dealing with the gangs we know of is enough to keep us busy.``
In the last year across the Chicago area, the rise in gang activity has been paralleled by the rise in the sale and use of crack cocaine, particularly during the last several months.
LARRY HOOVER AND THE GD'S HIMSELF IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE 6 RIDING 8 BALL CRIPS, 8 BALL STARTED IN THE SOUTH IN THE 80'S, BUT IT BECAME OFFICAL IN 1993 UNDER HOOVERS PERMISSION CAUSE THE CRIPS AND GD'S WERE WARRING WHEN THE CRIPS FIRST CAME TO THE LAND AND HOOVER USED THAT TO MAKE A PEACE SUMMIT IN 1993 BETWEEN THEM SO HE CAN GET PAROLE. HE SUCCEEDED IN UNITING THEM, BUT FAILED GETTING PAROLE LOL. AND T RODGERS AND THE STONES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE 5 RIDING UBN BLOODS.... NOW WE ALL JUST FINALLY STARTING TO ACCEPT IT ALL AND MERGE IT TOGETHER.
sh*t, IF U THOUGHT THAT WAS CRAZY, READ ABOUT THESE MAYWOOD ILLINOIS BLOODS DOIN MAJOR DIRT:
http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/05/18/ ... n-chicago/
MAYWOOD, Ill. (CBS) – The Bloods may sound familiar by name, from their rivalry with the Crips in stories of gang violence in Los Angeles, or from movies such as “Colors.”
But they have never had a presence in the Chicago area.
Earlier this year, the Cook County Sheriff’s graffiti unit snapped photos of Bloods graffiti in west suburban Maywood and south suburban Harvey.
Then, sheriff’s investigators spoke to two men in Maywood who said they were from California and admitted they were Bloods. Other Bloods have been identified in the north suburbs near Chicago’s border. And a Bloods member hiding out in Schaumburg was arrested for questioning in a burglary and several murders in California.
“It’s something we’re keeping a close eye on,” said Sgt. Jason O’Malley of the sheriff’s gang crimes unit.
The surprising revelation that Bloods are on Chicago’s doorstep comes as Sheriff Tom Dart is escalating his war on gangs in the suburbs. This year, Dart has partnered with more than 50 police agencies and his investigators began using a sophisticated mapping system to target the worst gang problems.
The sheriff has taken a new step to collect information on gang members in the jail. Incoming arrestees are asked if they’re gang members. If they say yes — which many do — their gang affiliation, location of their gang “set” and photos of any gang tattoos are entered into a database.
Dart’s investigators also are working to identify gang leaders in the suburbs based on information from inmates, local police agencies and snitches on the street.
Combining gang intelligence with block-to-block crime data from the suburbs, the sheriff’s new task force can quickly identify emerging gang problems, officials said.
Sheriff’s officers and Cook County suburban cops are hitting the streets together. Recently, the task force acted on intelligence that resulted in the arrest of a gang member and the seizure of 27 guns in south suburban Thornton, officials said.
Gun recoveries and arrests have shot up this year as a result of the initiative, which involves almost half the police agencies in Cook County other than the Chicago Police Department, sheriff’s officials said. For the first four months of 2011, the sheriff’s gang and narcotics teams seized 103 guns, compared to 69 over the same period last year, said Steve Patterson, a spokesman for Dart.
The gang crimes unit is relying on a mapping system first used by the Cook County assessor’s office to track properties. The sheriff’s customized computer system can create crime maps for each suburb in the task force. The maps show a variety of information — such as 911 calls, arrest data and graffiti reports. The task force uses the so-called density maps to pinpoint high-crime spots. Then it might conduct a search warrant on a single drug house or launch a broader mission to take out an entire gang.
In west suburban Burbank, the task force went after the Ambrose street gang earlier this year. The FBI notified sheriff’s investigators that one Ambrose member in Burbank was secretly recorded saying: “There’s too much f—— heat here.”
“We heard most of them have relocated,” said Kevin Ruel, deputy chief of special investigations for the sheriff.
As for the Bloods, they were founded in Los Angeles in 1972, and the gang’s violence with the Crips over the drug trade escalated in the early 1980s as crack cocaine hit Los Angeles. The war between the two gangs was the subject of the aforementioned 1988 movie “Colors,” starring Sean Penn and Robert Duvall as Los Angeles police officers.
In later years, the Bloods spread across much of the country.

NO MORE BULLSHITTIN WITH U FUCKBOIS, JUST ACCEPT THE FACTS, THE BLOODS IS HERE AND WE IN CHICAGO, BEEN HERE AND GROWIN, sh*t HERE'S MORE, A 1996 ARTICLE ABOUT MY SET (OUTLAW LOCO BLOODS) RASIN HELL IN CHICAGO
http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1996 ... ast-asians
One recent evening in a small ninth-floor apartment in the Edgewater neighborhood, the family of David Torres knelt before a plastic crucifix and released his restless spirit to heaven.
A large photo of the beaming teenager rested on a makeshift altar in the living room of the devout Filipino household. As children fidgeted and a refrigerator hummed, the family's soft prayers to the Comforter of the Afflicted and Queen of Peace ended with a last, throaty "Amen." There were no tears, just stunned resignation over a loss that will remain incomprehensible.
Forty days earlier, the prescribed period before this ceremonial farewell to David's soul, the 17-year-old had been kicked to death by Cambodian gang members in a Burger King parking lot in Albany Park.
The young immigrant was mistaken for a Filipino gang member when he was dragged from the eatery by his arms and legs and methodically pummeled into a coma, according to police. Five Cambodian-American teens were caught hours later and since have been charged as adults with first-degree murder.
The next afternoon, Dominador Torres, who had brought David to the United States from their home near Manila in 1993, gave doctors permission to remove his son's battered body from life support systems.
"Dave was such a skinny, skinny boy who would hurt no one," Torres' grim-faced aunt, Patricia Germino, said at the conclusion of the family ritual two weeks ago. "I could understand other ways to die. But in America, like this, his death means nothing."
The crime went largely unnoticed outside the Asian community, but it continues to reverberate there.
Only two weeks before the Torres family's Catholic ceremony, Cambodian Buddhist monks, their saffron robes peeking out from under overcoats, had rung gongs on the bitterest night of the year, marking the death beside a bit of blood-stained pavement and a plastic banner that proclaimed America Prefers the Whopper Sandwich.
The sheer brutality of David's death shocked even police gang experts, who are preoccupied with more hard-core, headline-grabbing gangs, such as the Latin Kings and the Gangster Disciples.
But even as the sensational trial of the latter gang's leadership went to the jury in federal court last week, the story of David Torres has quietly opened a window onto the hidden social fissures plaguing some of Chicago's most industrious Asian minorities--close-knit communities of Filipinos, Cambodians and other Southeast Asians whose children are caught in a troubling cultural gap.
Few suspected that the tangled roots of Torres' murder may ultimately reach beyond Chicago, to tap the killing fields of Cambodia, the machismo of Filipino culture and the wrath of ghostly ancestors known as neat ta.
And closer to home, his gruesome death also illuminated the obscure cultural frictions stoking an increasingly violent grudge match between Cambodian and Filipino gangs on Chicago's North Side--a sporadic war that has flared everywhere from the polyglot halls of Senn High School to the gleaming corridors of a suburban shopping mall.
For some, the rivalry is driven by something as seemingly banal as the gangbangers' physical stature.
"The Cambodians want to be bad, but they're too small to pick on the blacks or the Spanish," said Vilbrando Eusebio, 17, a Filipino high school student who was with Torres the day he died. "So they attack Filipinos, who are kind of small. Only we don't let them--we stay in groups."
Others point to class differences that have fractured Southeast Asian immigrant groups.
Chicago's estimated 1,900 Cambodians, for example, began arriving in the mid-1970s as destitute refugees from their homeland's communist takeover by the Khmer Rouge, a revolutionary regime that butchered as many as 2 million of their Buddhist compatriots.
Today, undereducated and low-paid, many still congregate in the neighborhoods where Torres' alleged assailants lived--Albany Park or other Asian immigrant enclaves, places where shoes are still lined up neatly outside apartment doorways and where old synagogues have been converted into Buddhist temples.
Chicago's 45,000 Filipinos, by contrast, have an immigrant history dating back four generations.
More educated and Americanized, they fill professional jobs that boost them quickly into the city's northern suburbs. And there, gangs that many experts say are the most nationalistic in the city reach even into middle-class homes.
"It's a cultural machismo thing with them," said Dennis Sakurai, a youth counselor with the Southeast Asia Center in Chicago. "Gangs didn't exist in Cambodia before, but they did in the Philippines."
Police estimate that at least 250 youths are mixed up in Asian gangs in Chicago.
In Torres' case, it was his being confused for an Akhro, a Filipino gang locked in an ongoing feud with the Vietnamese-Cambodian Outlaw Loco Bloods, that inadvertently cost him his life.
