  •  Well - though I link to them (7+ / 0-)

    I don't always believe everything in the NY Times :)

    Better to read Barrios book- which gives very in depth detail.  

    and Father Barrios does not in any way condone or endorse murder.  He does poke holes in the "Blood ran the entire gang from inside" which is not quite the truth.  Frankly, Blood had little knowledge of what was going on in the streets.

    The whole point of this really is that the NY Latin Kings was formed in prison and bled into the streets.  Formed in prison for the same reasons most prison gangs/groups do - who can forget Malcolm X's conversion to NOI in prison - first and foremost it was protection.  

    Do you know how many guards in Cali are members of the Aryan Brotherhood?

    Our prisons are a breeding ground for the creation of more and more "gang' members.

    Our prisons are a direct result of a totally fucked up criminal justice system - driven by the b.s. war on drugs.
