The Gang 1 | Crimson
Beginning of the Gang
During the crisis the Bloods and Crips ended their long feud and made an alliance. The Gangs leaders convened at a secret location to discuss their alliance and leadership role. As both gangs had set they would retain those set but have a new banner hosted over them. Crimson was the decided hiding the two original gangs name within. ‘Cri’ symbolised the Crips. Also to the original Crip member unofficially believed the location of ‘Cri’ at the beginning of the word suggest the beginning of the gangs and the superiority of the Crips over the Bloods which had been part of their gang long ago. The bloods got the full word as the colour as it represented blood. This again became unofficial known as the Bloods superiority as the word encapsulated the ‘Cri’ therefore so did the Bloods encapsulated the Crips.
The gangs’ leaders had a difficulty during this period as they wanted to claim leadership for themselves. The conversations ran for up to week with many chance of the alliance breaking down. However by the end the discussion the gangs settled on a council as the appointed leader selecting 4 leaders from each gang to control their newly formed gang. They would have members work beneath known as generals and like the army going to down in stages until the lower ranks which end as Pimp, Dealer and finally Foot Solider.
Rise to Power
After their week of organization the Crimson gangs had been formed with all sets on each side changing their name to Crimson. Forcing old rivalries to become a truce and combine their sets and areas together. The effect was substantial – Drug trade grew and the profits doubled as finical the gang gained more power. In the following month with the depression setting in, the membership rose as the income for each rank out shone other job classes. By 2013 the gang was notorious and controlled big areas of Los Angeles. The result was a rise in crime as their number began to outgrow local law enforcement staff. By 6 month the crime rate had doubled again and the backlog of case where immense. In result the gangs where living the free life as the likelihood of being arrested was rare. Following this the gangs began to make inroads in to local agencies and began bribing official and officer alike to look past crime even before they were committed. Soon the gangs had more control of L.A. than the government and began expanding their work to places such a Nevada and San Francisco - With only federal agency poking around every 12 to 18 months. By 2014 they had dominance in these states controlling casino and whore house alike in both states but remained loyal to L.A. branch and the home of the Gang which had become known to the Gang as the ‘Crimson Valley’.
The Gangs had originally been blue and red in colour but when the joined together they used purple as a sign of the two colours merging and was seen to prosperity. The colour was compulsory for the gangs but was displayed in a different fashion by different sets that use handkerchief around their heads or purple jackets. With their rise in financially gang member began to where custom suits which had purple implement or bought a car with purple paint on them.
The gangs had originally used the same method of initiation into the group by killing a member of the opposing set but due to the alliance had become obsolete. Instead they began targeting regular day citizen, in most cases supermarket vendors or business owner who had been late with protection payment or had try to deceive the gang by laundering money. However a rule applied the more famous or important the death the higher the rank. As such they began targeting politicians, actor/actress, and even some musician however making sure to stay away from local heroes/heroine.
With the truce in place, the gangs’ main focus was on the Latin Kings which in a similar way had amassed a huge following. The gangs normally would have small set fight which adds up to nothing more than being on the wrong turf. However the Crimson where more dominate and with influence in local P.D. would wage a gang war with the Latin gangs and push them out of their turf. This began to be known as Crimson King War. However with different nationalities within each area it became had to get rid of the kings as they would masquerade as civilian if there area had been occupied.
The Initiate Samuel Jones - a.k.a. SJ, Sammy, Diablo Muerte, DD Sammy Jones grew in the neighbourhood at the end of Los Feliz Blvd and had been accustomed to crime from an early age. This became an influence on his life as he began to hang with gang member whilst at school and at home. However when trying to initiate into the local gang (The White Fences – Whom would later join part of Latin Kings) he wasn’t excepted to due to his colour even though his mother was from south American origins. In result by the time he was 16 he was isolated at his school and received a beating by the gang 20yds from his house. This was a near end from SJ but lucky for him a Crip gang where riding by and saw the white fence beating a fellow African American. The gang where shot down in an improvised drive-by and SJ was escorted to the car and driven to the nearby set safe house. His allegiance to the Crips grew as he began to hang with the member at school and saw himself accepted into the group. But as a child he remained not a member until he came of age. However it was a month after his 17th birthday when he watched the awful image of his mother being mowed down by a drive-by. At first it appeared to be another gang but after an investigation began it appeared to be that of the White fences. In conclusion, SJ began to commit crimes against South Americans; be it steals from a shop or beating on locals walking him home. In result his racial hate grew and his ambition to be part of the cribs grew. By the time it came to his 18th SJ was ready to become a fully fledged crib and to locals had became known as Diablo Muerte (- Devil’s Death or DD for Short). As standard this began his initiate progress but for his reputation the (Now known) Crimson had set him a bigger task this one would be a famous actor of Latin background.
