    Gee, what about the attractions in this area? Gang life is popular with the suburban white kids, but it can`t be your only tourist draw, maybe if Google posted the crack houses and corners that prostitutes frequent it would help greatly.

    I suppose maybe there`s a good reason for that.

    not trash mate. its a great way to avoid getting shot, or to get a fix, plus now you`d be correct in saying `google knows everything`. which they do indeed know everything now.

    Not belittling your thought, but I can`t say that I would likely check Google, before I went out for a dinner and a night on the town.

    "Hey, let`s go hit that Thai restaurant on W Florence next to W73rd st. No wait...Google says the Crips hang in that area."

    One of the many reasons I would never move to Los Angeles County. Honestly, who thinks it is a nice place to live? Starving artists and musicians? Okay sure, its great for the poor attempting to become rich. But what is the success rate of that? There are so many of those, that they actually bring the town down with them. Two words: ARIZONA BAY!

    So why are (the "crips" and "bloods" at war with each other in the first place? I happened to find a gang war video on YT once and all the comments looked as if they were written by spazzing three year olds.

    But not one comment declared why they were fighting in the first place.

    Uhh... how many black people do you know?

    "If so American gang culture is larger than king kong on ice."

    Definitely. Within a 2 mile radius there are 4 different gangs (local gangs. Im not including national gangs like Crips and Bloods)

    "where are the roundabouts?"
    the what?

    I grew up in LA. And this map only covers south central part of LA, not even half of the gangland. It`s all mostly black gangs, compton, Watts, etc. Not even all of them. What about the Asian gangs in Hawaiian Gardens, Beuna Park, and Anahiem. (Yes, that`s where Disneyland is) What about the mexican gangs in East LA, Boyle Hights and Hacienda Hights?

    For those of you who think LA is the gang capitol of the US, look at any major city. Just Chigago, which is smaller than LA has more gangs per capita than New York and Los Angeles combined.

    He means clique, an exclusive group.

    > primetimekin
    > where are the roundabouts? - the what?
    Roundabouts are circular traffic islands at intersections. Why he asked that though I have no idea, I don`t see the link either.

    > Nidonemo

    > So why are the crips and bloods at war with each other in the first place?
    Its a race thing, Crips are primarily African American, Bloods are neo-nazi`s, Pirus are Hispanic. But the various cells of the gangs often war with another cell of the same gang.
    > pEopLE wHo HAve BrOKen CaPS LoCK KEys anD alL tHAt
    They wouldn`t have written that example then, Bloods refuse to use the letter "C" to show their contempt of the Crips.

    CONCLUSION: I watch way too much Crime Channel on cable TV :-)

    The Secret Service hereby affirms publicly that there is not, nor was there ever, a person living or dead with the name airsofter1, and that alleged wild speculations and rumours about his supposed disappearance after using Google to look at empty desert areas are false and unwarranted.

    "Its a race thing, Crips are primarily African American, Bloods are neo-nazi`s, Pirus are Hispanic"

    What the hell? Boy are YOU misinformed! All three are black gangs. They are all in south central LA (Compton area included). What ever TV show told you that the bloods are neo nazis needs to be tagged with a warning disclamer that says they didn`t to ANY research at all. There are NO neo nazi gangs in Southcentral Los Angeles. And the Piru? That`s a predominatly black gang that started on Piru Street, in a black neighborhood! It`s branched out pretty quickly. Mexican gangs are mostly Mexican Mafia, Sur-13 and the Harpys. The only active nazi gangs outside of prison are in the far east of the area in Riverside and San Bernadino Counties mostly in the hills around Wrightwood and Mt. Baldy.

    Calling Bloods a neo nazi groups is like calling gay rights groups conservative republicans.
