Just wondering how active gangs are within Massachusetts. Being a police officer in LA, I am curious to see if any of our gangs are making it out as far as Boston? I know that MS 13 is very active, they are a big gang out here in Los Angeles.

There are many gangs in Boston. But Bridgeport, CT beats out all other towns/cities, per capita, on the East Coast for the number of gangs (well that information is 2 years old, but I can't imagine it has changed too much).

These gangs that are active, what are they? Bloods/Crips, Hispanic? Just curious to see if there is any relation to the gangs out here. A lot of the East Coast gangs are knock offs of Los Angeles gangs.

What are some ways that you are combating gangs out there? One of the big weapons we have is gang injunctions. These are court orders that are served on the gang members that prevent them from hanging out together in certain areas, wearing their gang colors, having cell phones or pagers, etc. This is very effective.

I'm not sure specifically what is done in CT to combat gangs, as I am not in LE yet. But this is something I have always had a large interest in. Here are a listing of some gangs in and around CT, this listing is not exclusive.

"People" or "Folks"
Asian Boyz
Greenville Crips
PPP (Purple Philippino Posse)
Asian Family
Jamaican Posse
SuiCiDe Kings
Bloods
Crips
Jungle Boys
T-Street Playaz
Brotherhood
Jungle Brothers
Texas Syndicate
Brotherhood of the Struggle
La Familia
The Association
Dominos
La Hermandad de Pistoleros Latinos
The Mob
East Coast Crips
Latin Kings/Queens
Tiny Rascals Gang
East-West Syndicate
Latin Locos
TRE'
El Rukns
Los Solidos
Trigga Luv
Elm City Boys
The Hells Angles
Tha Pagan
The Bandidos
The Outlaws
20 Luv
EME - Mexican Mafia
Nations
West Side Lynch Mob
Exotic Foreign Crip Creation
Ñeta
Aryan Nation
KKK (Ku Klux Klan)
Black Hebrew Israelite (BHI)
National Social White Peoples Party
The Association
BOWS (Brothers of White Strength)
Church of the Creator Stormfront
White Aryan Resistance
The Nation of Gods and Earths
The Order of Thulle
Southeastern Gang Activities Group

Some that are listed on a seperate link in that website for CT (even though the above list states the same) are the following:

Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation, Almighty Latin King and Queen Charter Nation, Black Gangster Disciples, Bloods, Crips,(numerous sets of each), Gangster Disciples, East Coast Foreign Crips, 1% Motorcycle Clubs (Hells Angles, Branded Ones), Nation of Gods and Earths aka Five Percenters, Ku Klux Klan, La Ñeta, Los Solidos, Mara Salvatrucha, MS-18, MS-13, Skinheads, Straight Edgers, Vice Lords

Gangs in Prison - Aryan Brotherhood, Nation of Gods and Earths aka Five Percenters, Ñeta, Latin Kings, Los Solidos, 20 Luv, Nation, Mexican Mafia, Texas Syndicate

One note on that - "Straight Edgers" are NOT, I repeat NOT a gang. It is a lifestyle. While some people who are straightedge are rough around the edges on the East Coast they are not gang members. That is different in Salt Lake City and other Western Cities though.

Here are the gangs for MA:
Almighty Latin King & Queen Nation, Asian Boyz, La Familia, La Neta, Latin Kings & Queen Charter Nation, Los Solidos, Skinheads, Tiny Rascal Gangsters, Great Circle Boyz, Nation of Gods and Earths AKA Five Percenters

Gangs in Prison - Aryan Brotherhood, Asian Boyz, Black Gangster Disciples, Black Guerrilla Family, Bloods Crips (numerous sets of each), Nation of Gods and Earths AKA Five Percenters, Jamaican Posses, Ku Klux Klan, La Familia, La Nuestra Familia, Ku Klux Klan, Latin Kings& Queen Charter Nation, Almighty Latin King & Queen Nation, La Neta, Skinheads, Vice Lords: Many of these gangs are also found to operate in the streets after release.

Enjoy.

I'm in a gang and I love it. We all wear the same blue outfits and drive these cool black and white crown vics with all kinds of crazy electronics in the console. We have meetings every day at 0700, 1500, and 2300. To get in I had to go through a nasty 22 week orientation where we had to wear silly-looking kakhi outfits.

Haven't met a another gang out there that can keep up with us!

Just drive through Bridgeport, CT... you can see that it is a rat's nest from the highway.

I see you're well versed on Bridgeport.

Yep, I spent a couple days there - learned a bit about the area... scary place..

I almost got into a fight there with a recenlty released convict (he stated this and had the tatt's to prove it) who was picking a fight with a kid cleaning the floors at McDonalds. He called the kid various derogatory names (the kid was hispanic) and got into his face. So I got in this shitbirds face and told him to take it elsewhere - that scared the shi# out of my wife as she was with me. After a few words he left... then my wife beat me up. :shock:

Although I might go down there for a Minor League game "Bridgeport Bluefish" this summer...

Yeah I've had a few Latin King/Queens after me in my time...when you're a teenager and one of the movie theaters is in Bridgeport you get in some decent "arguments"...but it's something I've always lived with, so it doesn't bother me any. Which is why in Springfield I almost got in a fight with some Latin Queen and my husband was flipping out because he didn't think I knew who she was. I think it's hysterical.


The bluefish are great - only about 2 miles from my house. We're going to go to a few games this summer probably as well. One of the old catchers was also a teacher in my high school.

So......... I guess by the numerous replies, there really isn't a gang problem in Massachusetts or those who have replied aren't aware of any?

Thanks and take care

I got lost driving through bridgeport two years ago to visiting a friend in Fairfield. The housing development areas feel like a foreign country for some reason.
