[edit] Information

NGC takes viewers to the streets of South Central Los Angeles as it charts the rise of two of the most notorious gangs in America: the Bloods and the Crips. Throughout the twentieth century, distinct periods of black American gang formation occurred in Los Angeles, from the early 1940s into the early 2000s. The first black gangs developed in the second half of the 1940s and 1950s in defense from white teenage gangs determined to attack and harass black youth. By 1960 the black areas of central Los Angeles—Watts, Central Avenue, and West Adams—had grown together. Whites increasingly moved to the suburbs leaving the area predominately black. The interracial violence among black and white gangs turned into black versus black gangs. The Crips were formed in the streets of Los Angeles in 1969 by founders Raymond Washington and Stanley Williams. By the end of 1972 there were eight Crip gangs and ten others, which were responsible for twenty-nine gang-related murders. The Crips and other gangs were rivals, though the Crips outnumbered the others and constantly terrorized them. As a result, the non-Crips met on Piru Street in Compton and formed an alliance that became known as the Bloods. Since their formation, the rivals have reportedly amassed a totall of more than 50,000 associated gang members, including well known rappers. Follow along as an emerging cocaine trade fuels staggering levels of bloodshed and the streets of Los Angeles begin to resemble a war zone. Exclusive interviews include Bloods founder T Rodgers; original Crip Angelo "Barefoot Pookie" White; former LAPD chief Darryl Gates; and LAPD gang unit veteran Tony Moreno.
