Gangs final

1. What relationship with AB & NLR: (Val pg284, 286)

- AB (Arian Brotherhood) is the well-established white prison gang in CA which
operates nationwide in state and federal correction center.
- NLR (Nazi Low Riders) is the name that chosen to disrespect Hispanics gang (Low
Riders mean they’re better than Hispanics). NLR is formed inside a CA juvenile
facility and this event took to the developing of the CYA (CA Youth Authority) state
prison for juveniles in CA. At first, NLR were formed to against the other ethnic
based gangs (they’re mostly young white male in the beginning).
- Relationship:
- NLR alliance with AB when AB leader John Stinson asked NLR to help act as
middlemen for AB operations.
- In between late 1970s and early 1980s: AB needed to maintain contact with the
general population in order the maintain control of their illegal activity so NLR filled
the void within the prison for a white-based gang and quickly grew.
- The NLR became so active and very violent as the connection with drug (meth)
trade that the law enforcement considers the NLR as a prison and street gang for
the first time on the West Coast.

2. How many NLR take control over White gangs? (Val pg284-287)
NLR creates such a power structure to control White gangs:
- Considered both a prison and street gang, the NLR have developed a reputation for
being cold blooded and ruthless. The major ages are between 31-35 yr olds.
- They have a national connection & have about 50% White gangs in their org. NLR
increases quickly in size and become more organized due to drug trade (Meth trade)
and their control power both in prison & on the street with the white supremacist
philosophy (Ex for the quickly increasing: In 1996: less than 50 members; Late
2000s: have over 5000 members)
- They gaining more power in Federal system (prison) because of the connection with
AB. They control the drug trade & criminal activity within the white prison population.

gangs using the military as a means of training.
3. Respect: elevated status in gangs because of their knowledge and experiences.
