Blood Piru Knowledge || Blood Piru Knowledge Gangsters

Piru knowledge will be a symbol of blood in a group, it is very important in every gangster.

With this knowledge, it will be easier for members to communicate more quickly in the symbol that has been in the hide.

The group of gangsters in the U.S., must use piru tool for communication among members, they are still many groups in racial and ethnic discrimination, such as black with a black and white with white.

Rasis I think will not be easy to dismiss in themselves, because in every soul is still strong in their tribes-tribes.

In the knowledge I have, that group that is a justified form of which we collaborate in a truth without discrimination or ethnic groups, then certainly a noble goal will be achieved.

And do not forget that this group, certainly not a positive thing in all the positive things that generate money certainly difficult, we may not try it.

Think of all the members o gangsters, to immediately stop the violence that caused the blood lost someone, because you also know that blood is very valuable and noble.

Blood Piru Knowledge

Blood Piru Knowledge

The 52 Pueblo Bishops live in a housing project located at 52nd Street and Long Beach Blvd on the East Side of South Central Los Angeles. They flag red (wear red bandanas) and identify as Bloods. Lately though, a lot of Bloods have chosen to sever ties with the Five Dueces when they declared war on their neighbors to the West, the Blood Stone Villians, enemies. Blood on Blood wars are few and far between and while Crips have been killing Crips for years, the general Blood rule is no red on red beefs. Personal disputes arise, but are usually squashed without any fatalities and it's usually handled between the opposing gang members who had the dispute in the first place. Another example of a serious Blood on Blood war is Compton's Tree Top Piru and Neighborhood Piru.

This example of graffiti is on the wall of the project housing unit the Five Dueces call home. ""ES" stands for "Eastside", "Pueblos" is the gang's name, the "1" I can only assume is for their claim of being "#1" and "CK" means "Crip Killers". They also clearly state their enemies: "38" is refering to 38th Street, a mexican gang from the same general area, "ECC" is "East Coast Crips" as a whole (most likely the 59's and Six Pack, which is the four subsets from the 60's: 62, 66, 68 and 69) and the Blood Stone Villians.

This was sprayed on a wall across the street from the project houses on Long Beach Blvd. This area is mostly warehouses and it was basically a free for all of gang tags, mostly done by the Pueblos.

The Pueblo's are mostly black, but have latino members and a latino clique (not sure of the name) that lives within the area that they are cool with. There is also an all Asian Blood gang known as the E/S OBz, which stands for Oriental Boyz. They used to be part of one large gang, but split up into three groups: the E/S OBz which live in East South Central, the W/S OLBz (Oriental Lazy Boyz) who flag red but arent bloods and call Chinatown home and the W/S OBz who live in North Hollywood and are Crips.

62 East Coast NHC.

Here is a general disclaimer for all posts to come: some photographs are taken while walking and others are from a car window because a lot of photo opportunities creep up out of nowhere so it's a quick snap and we're on our way. Excuse some of the quality.


The "62" stands for the particular street this East Coast Crip clique claims, the "NHC" is for "Neighborhood Crip", which allies them with other NHC Crip gangs such as the Rollin 60's. "Bubblegumsk" means "Bubblegum Killers", which is a derogatory term for Broadway Gangster Crips.

In this photo you can see that they have crossed out the initials of the Broadway Gangster Crips, which is the most common way of stating one's enemies. "K" at the end of song gang's initials means they are _____ Killers, another way of naming enemies. "Flower Killer" more than likely refers to the street by the name of Flower that BGC include in their turf.

What's Up & Welcome...

The purpose of this blog is to use it as a stepping stone to our main goal: publishing a book dedicated to the art & culture that goes hand in hand with the gangs of Los Angeles. So much is considered taboo by the media and it forces far too many people to discredit the culture and tradition that thousands of people practice and make such an important part of their lives each and every day.

The main focus of this project is to create a general understanding of gang graffiti. Gang's use spray paint to mark their territories, call out enemies and even warn people of things that will be going down in the future, but most importantly they also use it to express themselves artistically. From the shottiest of street tags to huge wall-covering murals, this is art and there are messages trying to be conveyed. We hope to give people a better understanding of what these messages mean.

Crips, Bloods & Surenos (mexican gang members) are everywhere in Los Angeles, and so is their art. Some of us are from these hoods, others are just fascinated with it, but we all respect and understand (or hope to achieve a better understanding) the culture that goes hand in hand with being in a street gang in Los Angeles, which is commonly refered to as the "home of the bodybags". We are currently putting in many hours in cars and on foot taking photographs of gang art and cataloging it for display on this website and in our upcoming book.

Any questions, comments or concerns can be sent our via the e-mail address below. Inquire about submitting contributions too, such as photographs you yourself took. Also, it must be noted that because we respect the "hood", we wont be revealing any information about contributors or anyone involved with gang life, as we know the LAPD like to use websites as a way to trap and imprison known gang members. We are here to contribute knowledge and the spreading of just that, not to help fill up their prisons.

Also, "Hood Art" is not the name of our organization, company, etc. It's just a monikor. It might change.

A first batch of photographs will be up tonight, as we took a trip to the East Side of South Central to visit a friend/contributor from an anonymous gang. We got some photographs of East Coast 62nd Neighborhood Crip graffiti, so expect that this evening.

a Sense of Blood and Piru

blood piru knowledge
Blood Piru Knowledge || a Sense of Blood and Piru

Why gangsters must use the symbol of blood and piru for their group, because blood is a symbol to show that it means if you want to have a great power that must be willingly sacrificing blood, piru with them can easily show to its members to act and what to do, more or less mimic those of the military such as the use of a password-the password for war. The gangsters have a network that is very knowledgeable and familiar with the sadism, and without the forgiveness of the group is not, I think the must be firm to the gangsters or criminal groups, because if left will be more damage and does not make life comfortable for the public about the direct jog with the local gangsters. Anyone who lives in the world would feel happy and comfortable when the environment where safe from the interference of the gangsters.

Bloods Gangsters

Blood Piru Knowledge || Bloods Gangsters

Who I'd like to meet:
The Bloods are one of Los Angeles, California street gangs. They are identified by the red color worn by their members, and their gang symbol is the word "blood" spelled out with their hands. The Bloods are made up of various sub-groups known as "sets" between which significant differences exist such as colors, clothing, and operations. Since their formation the Blood gangs have branched out throughout the United States, and have even influenced youth groups using the same name in Europe.Starting in late 1971, the Avalon Garden Crips, Inglewood Crips and various other Crip sets joined forces. They began to expand to non-Crip gang territories such as those controlled by The L.A. Brims, a powerful street gang that had been formed in 1969. Due to the encroachments of the Crips, several gangs eventually became part of the Blood family, including the Bishops and Athens Park boys. The Denver Lanes also had conflicts with the Crips, but were outnumbered and eventually became unknown in California for some time. The Piru Street Boys, who presented a powerful force in Compton, actually collaborated with the Crips prior to 1972, as the Crips had affected the Piru neighborhoods. The gang sign was eventually developed using the hands....

Blood Signs and Symbols

signs and symbolsSigns and symbols are very important to street gangs and the prison gang culture. These signs and symbols are the basis for most graffiti and are used by gangs to advertise their gang or to intimidate and disrespect rival gangs. Signs and symbols may also be found, in the case of student aged young people, on book bags, in books, school papers, and even clothing.

These symbols may be seen in many forms. Some are known universally, such as a heart, a pyramid, a walking cane or a five or six pointed star. These symbols have all been adopted by gangs and have become nationally known to represent certain gangs. Other symbols have been created or drawn and have also become well known.

Latin kings Gang Sign

blood piru knowledge, latin kings gang signThe Latin Kings are said to be the largest and most organized Hispanic street gang in the United States of America, which has its roots dating back to the 1940s in Chicago, Illinois. Latin King documents that Reveal Gino Gustavo Colon (aka "Lord Gino") is considered the "SUN" of the Almighty Latin King Nation in Chicago, and has been for a long time. Currently he is serving a life sentence in federal prison due to a 25-count indictment, which includes charges of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and other drugs. Latin King headquarters is located on Beach and Spaulding in Northwest Chicago.

Luis Felipe (aka King Blood) started his own chapter of the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation with the permission of his superiors in Chicago, the "Motherland". He designated himself as Inca and Supreme Crown of the New York State. In 1995 Antonio Fernandez (aka King Tone) was designated the Inca and Supreme Crown of the New York State and New Jersey, and the ALKQN once again began a transformation.

Chicago Latin Kings

The Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation (ALKQN, ALKN, LKN) is the largest Hispanic street gang in the United States. Unlike MS-13 and 18th Street gang, whose great portion of gang membership exists in Mexico, Central and South America-the majority of the Latin Kings Reside within the United States. The ALKN has over 25.000 members in the city of Chicago, with another ten to fifteen thousand members in the surrounding suburbs of Illinois. They also have organized chapters of the Latin Kings in over 41 states and several Latin American and European countries: Mexico, Spain, Dominican Republic, Canada, Italy, Ecuador, Peru, Puerto Rico, United Kingdom and others. Latin Kings are mostly of Latino descent, with some Black, White, Asian and Middle Eastern members as well.

Organizational structure

The Latin Kings have a hierarchical organizational structure, and they have sets in numerous states across the country. These sets are referred to as "chapters" or "tribes", with each reporting to an Inca, Caciqa, Enforcer and Regional Officer. The head (or heads) of the entire criminal organization are known as "Coronas" (crowns in Spanish).


A painting of a Latin King emblem promoting Latino Solidarity and "Justice to the People"

The Almighty Latin Kings first emerged in Chicago in the 1940s after several young Puerto Rican males organized into a self-defense group to protect their community and to unite all Latinos into a collective struggle against "oppression". Their goal was to help each other overcome the problems of Racism and prejudice that newly arriving Puerto Rican and Mexican immigrants were experiencing and to serve as a vanguard for their communities.

Like the Black Panthers, the Young Lords, and so many other groups that struggled for political empowerment, the Latin Kings were broken as a movement. They lost touch with their roots and grew into one of the largest and most criminal Infamous Gangs in America. The group's members became involved in crimes including murder, drug trafficking, robberies and other organized criminal activities.

Violence is the hallmark of the Latin Kings. In their Beginnings, when they were not great in size, their brutal history and propensity for violence distinguished them from other Latino Gangs in Chicago, making them equal players with the larger Black "Super Gangs", such as the Gangster Disciples, the Almighty Vice Lord Nation and the Black P. Stones. They also played an equal role in the formation of the People Nation. In recent times, the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation has grown to be the second largest hall in size and has hitherto been recognized as the most violent street gang in the Chicagoland area - the Gangster Disciples being the largest.


A member of the Latin Kings showing tattoo of a crowned lion

The Latin King colors are black and gold; gang markings consist of a 5 or 3-point crown, writings of LK, Alk, ALKN, ALKQN abbreviations (or the whole words), and drawings of the Lion and / or the King Master. Latin King Symbolism is usually accompanied with the name and number of the chapter, region or city of the aisle. The Latin Kings are of the People Nation, and therefore, represent everything to the "right" in opposition to the "left", which is representative of the "Folk Nation".


The Latin Kings teach Latino pride and all members are encouraged to live in accordance with the principles of KINGISM (a morally driven awareness of social oppression and the desire to uplift their people to their rightful place: "amongst the thrones of Kings and Queens") . The Latin Kings operate under strict codes and guidelines that are conveyed in a lengthy constitution [5] and follow the Teachings of the ALKQN Manifesto [6], which was written by highly intellectual Latin Kings (these documents are referred to as the "King Manifesto / Constitution "or" KM / C "for short). In this manifesto you can find traces of Marxism, Christianity, Confucianism and other revolutionary / historical world-views which when combined make up the ideological and Morality of "KINGISM". These Teachings are centered around the upliftment of the poor (the "Oppressed Third World People") and the struggle against the oppressive social, political and economic existing order of things.

To begin their meetings, members may face the East, which is where the sun rises, and recite one of the various Latin King prayers to Yahve (The Almighty Father and King of Kings) and pledge to be ever faithful to the Nation. These meetings are also used by members to discuss recent events, Dues, retaliation, position responsibilities and elections. When compared to most street Gangs, the Latin Kings are generally more structured and organized. The gang's rules are strictly enforced and some members celebrate January 6th as "King's Holy Day" and the first week in March as "King's Week" [7]
[edit] Culture

Due to the organizations contradictory history, it is often debated about whether they are a criminal organization or a positive force in the community (as they have obviously taken on both roles at different points in time, as well as simultaneously). For example, in 2000 there were approximately 1600 self-admitted Latin Kings in the Illinois Department of Corrections, and these accounted for over half of all the recorded violent acts on prison personnel and other inmates, making the ALKN the most violent prison gang in Illinois (Federal Bureau of Investigation, Fiscal Report, 2000).

But their "apparent contradictions", the Latin Kings may argue, can be better understood when viewed through the lens of their Teachings. Once a member of the Almighty Latin King Nation, according to the "Latin King Manifesto", a member naturally passes through three stages of consciousness:

(1) The Primitive Stage, wherein the neophyte member is expected to be Immature and to be involved in such activities as gang-banging and being a street warrior without the full consciousness of Kingism;

(2) the Conservative or Mummy Stage, which is where a member tires of the street gang life but is still Accepting of life as it has been taught to him by the existing system that exploits all people of color, dehumanizes them, and maintains them under the conditions and social yoke of Slavery;

and (3) The New King Stage, where the member recognizes the need for a revolution of the "mind". According to the manifesto, "The New King is the end product of complete awareness, perceiving three-hundred and sixty degrees of enlightenment; his observations are free and independent; his thoughts are not Clouded by any form of prejudice ... For him there are no horizons between races, sexes and senseless labels ", including the alley labels for recognition. The New King no longer views the rival warriors as the cause of his ills and seeks world unity for the sake of humanization and freedom for all the "Oppressed Third World Peoples".

Therefore, as Expressed by appropriately Teachings their own, a great majority of Latin Kings live a criminal lifestyle while a select few seek to better their communities and fight against oppression and social injustices.
[edit] The Meat Loaf Story

The Latin Kings rose to be one of the most feared and revered Gangs inside and outside the penal system in the state of Illinois. The Latin Kings ordered "hits" against Correctional officers, killed disobedient members and did not hesitate to commit violence against rival gang members. Latin King gang members would follow orders and vowed to lay down their lives for their "Nation". Unfortunately, this also meant extreme internal discipline and organized fear. One such story goes as follows:

In 1983, an inmate by the name of Carlos Robles was considered an escapee two days before he was scheduled to be released from the Illinois Department of Corrections. Years later, a high-ranking Latin King, who turned informant, gave the FBI critical information about the location of Carlos' skull and the bloody tale of how the Latin Kings butchered him and fed him to the Stateville Prison inmate population for dinner.

According to the informant's account, Carlos Robles northside was a Latin King who had disrespected the leader of the Southside Latin Kings, one Raul Gonzalez (AKA "Baby King"). After receiving approval from Gustavo Colon, the hit was ordered against Carlos Robles.

The two Latin Kings that were chosen for the hits were heavy users of PCP, and they basically told him they were throwing him a "going-away party". The two hit-men got permission from the cellhouse guard to use the basement for the going-away party-the basement of the cellhouse unit also contained the shower area. When Carlos entered the basement of the cellhouse with the Latin Kings they decapitated him and then chopped his body up into smaller pieces with heavy-gauge steel machetes. To eliminate evidence, they turned on the showers to drain the blood and wash off the body parts. Members of their own gang, according to the informants testimony, cooperated upstairs in the cell house by staging a diversion fight. Meanwhile the two Latin Kings placed the body parts into plastic bags and went through a tunnel which led to what was then the butcher shop area of the Prisons kitchen.

The two Latin Kings paid a rival gang member, who was in charge of the butcher shop, to grind up the body parts in the older meat grinder that was there, a very large commercial grade meat grinder. On the menu for the evening meal that night at Stateville Penitentiary was meat loaf. The rival gang member agreed, and grinded up the body parts with the pork and beef that was also going into the meat loaf for the evening meal. The skull was incapable of being ground; therefore, the killers buried the skull in the basement of the cellhouse.

No traces of the skin, bones, teeth, or blood of Carlos Robles were found for years. That is until the skull was dug up in 1995 in Stateville [3] when an informant offered information of its whereabouts to the federal authorities in 1995. No one was ever charged for his murder.
[edit] 1989 assassination of Officer Lawrence Kush

On July 1, 1989 a Correctional officer at the Stateville Correctional Center, Lawrence Kush, Jr.., Was assassinated by the Latin Kings while on the job [8]. Officer Kush was known to be very thorough when conducting "shakedowns" of prison cells at Stateville to find Contraband such as drugs, makeshift weapons, and money. During one of these "shakedowns," the other Correctional officer, who was conducting the "shakedown" with Kush, Gino Colon overheard inmate say that both Kush and the other officers were going to get what was coming to them. Colon was one of the two highest-ranking members of the Latin Kings "nation."

Testimony at trial indicated that Colon ordered a "hit" on Kush because his "shakedowns" were interfering with the Latin Kings' drug business. On July 1, 1989, two Latin Kings put on prison Jumpsuits, gloves, and stocking caps with holes cut in them such that the stocking caps looked like ski masks. They ambushed Kush and beat him about the head and body with pipes. When other prisoners and prison officials discovered Kush and came to his assistance, he was vomiting and bleeding from the top of his head. By the time Kush arrived at the hospital, he was brain dead from the injuries he sustained in this beating. The pipes, Jumpsuits, gloves, and ski masks used by the assasins were later recovered by Investigators on the prison grounds [[9]]. Through further inestigation it was discovered that Officer Lawrence Kush was just one of 30 officers on a "hit list" prepared by the Latin Kings [4].
[edit] Federal Sting Operations Against the Chicago Latin Kings
[edit] 1997: Operation Lord Gino

After spending a quarter century in prison on a murder conviction, Gustavo "Gino" Colon, co-leader of the powerful Latin Kings street gang, was charged with a 25 count indictment. Gang underlings were so sure that Colon would be released that they had already arranged for him to be squired Menard from the Downstate Correctional Center to Chicago in a limousine, according to law enforcement officials. Instead, 24 days before his release, Colon was Awakened by prison officials, who handcuffed him and then escorted him out of the prison, where he was handed over to federal agents. Colon was driven to Chicago in a van under tight security. He and 13 other members and affiliates of the Latin King street gang were charged with running a drug operation that is alleged to have distributed $ 6 million worth of crack and powder cocaine, marijuana and heroin throughout Chicago between 1995 and 1996.

According to the 25-count indictment, Colon - known as "Lord Gino" - used prison telephones and meetings with visitors at Menard to direct the gang's massive drug operations, including the purchase of cocaine and the wholesale distribution of drugs from an apartment building in the 2400 block of North Kedzie Avenue. The "Sun King", Gustavo Colon was given a "Life Sentence" in federal prison after a two month trial [10].
[edit] 2006: Operation "Broken Crown"

A three-year investigation of the Latin Kings by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), entitled Operation Broken Crown, ended with the arrest of Fernando "Ace" King, who was suspected to be one of the highest-ranking members of the gang and at least 20 others. The operation was conducted in various areas in Chicago and the suburbs.

Prosecutors said the crack in the case came from an informant named Jesse Guajardo, the alleged "Inca" or leader of a southwest suburban crew of the Latin Kings, from whom the witness purchased cocaine on about 10 occasions between 2000 and 2003. In just 18 months alone in 2003 and 2004, Guajardo, arrested in February, allegedly purchased 150 kilograms of cocaine - including as much as 50 kilograms at one time for about $ 1.8 million - from his alleged supplier, Jose Estrada, according to federal charges.

Investigators methodically built a case as the wired informant made the rounds handing out drugs and Collecting money from the alley Supervisors month after month. Investigators dubbed Operation Pesadilla their work, Spanish for nightmare [11].
[edit] 2009: Operation Augustin Zambrano

Augustin Zambrano, alleged to be a "corona" of the Latin Kings, making him the highest-ranking leader outside of prison and responsible for overseeing the illegal activities of all factions of the powerful Latin Kings Chicago, is among 18 defendants charged in a sweeping new federal indictment against the gang's alleged hierarchy. Zambrano and other alleged leaders of the 26th Street Region Of The Latin Kings were charged with racketeering conspiracy for allegedly running a criminal enterprise to Enrich themselves and others through drug trafficking and Protecting and preserving their power, territory and revenue through acts of murder, attempted murder , assault with a dangerous weapon, extortion, and other acts of violence [12].

To Enforce the Latin Kings' grip on the community and control over its members and associates, defendants charged in the racketeering conspiracy (RICO) count allegedly kept victims in fear of the gang and its leaders by enforcing what it referred to as an "SOS" - or shoot on sight - order against Latin King members who cooperated with law enforcement.

As part of the racketeering conspiracy, defendants and their associates allegedly:

1. conducted the gang's affairs through a series of laws and policies, some of which were codified in a constitution and a series of laws. The rules included a three-page list of 25 rules Establishing procedures for homicides, "security," and the sale of counterfeit identification documents;

2. attended regular meetings, known as "demos" - or, when held by officers Nation, "Nation demos" - at which they discussed, planned, and otherwise engaged in criminal activity, including murder, attempted murder, Narcotics distribution, and obstruction of justice ;

3. initiated members by causing them to endure physical assaults conducted by other members at various gang-related gatherings;

4. engaged in a system of "violations" in which they and others enforced discipline and the rules by Attempting murder, conspiring to murder, physically beating and threatening those members who violated rules, questioned authority, or posed a threat to the leaders or purposes of the alley;

5. committed illegal acts known as "burns," including murder, attempted murder, aggravated battery, intimidation, and assault against individuals who posed a threat to the gang or jeopardized its operations, including rival gang members and witnesses to illegal activities. Latin Kings members and associates were required to participate in such "burns," received standing orders to shoot rival gang members, and were instructed to retaliate for gang-related attacks upon fellow members and associates;

6. managed the procurement, transfer, use, concealment, and disposal of firearms and dangerous weapons to protect gang-related territory, personnel, and operations, and to Deter, eliminate, and retaliate against a rival Competitors and other Gangs and individuals;

7. Monitored law enforcement radio frequencies to detect and avoid law enforcement inquiry into their activities, including gang-related during missions;

8. acquired automobiles, which were known by several names, including "rammers," to use them during missions against rival Gangs;

10. and operated a "Box" system in which section and region leaders and others controlled and maintained a stash of money for the gang. Gang members and associates paid monthly Dues required into the box which, in turn, the gang used to bail its members out of jail, to send money to incarcerated members, and to purchase and sell firearms and controlled substances. Members their associates at times paid money into the "Box" by selling Narcotics supplied by Nation-level members of the gang [13].

The charges result from a sustained, coordinated investigation by multiple federal law enforcement agencies, working together with the Chicago Police Department and other state and local partners, to dismantle the hierarchy of the Latin Kings and other highly-organized, often violent, drug-trafficking Chicago Street Gangs. Nevertheless, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have yet to do much in terms of Eliminating, but simply to diminish, the Almighty Latin King Nation's power and control over Chicago's illegal drug trade.
[edit] New York Latin Kings

To avoid imprisonment for his criminal activities in Chicago, Luis Felipe moved to New York, where he was later convicted of killing his girlfriend, which he claimed was a Drunken accident. While in jail, he got permission from his superiors in Chicago to start the New York chapter of the Latin Kings which grew very rapidly. Using hand-written letters, he gave members orders to kill enemies, as well as the Latin Kings disobedient, in order to preserve discipline. Felipe's gang was highly organized.
[edit] Street gang: 1984-1995

From 1986 to the internal power struggle that erupted in 1994, the ALKQN would solidify its role as a corridor through crimes such as murder, racketeering, and RICO Act charges. [2]

In 1991 Felipe was returned to prison after a short release for parole violations stemming from the receipt of stolen goods. Felipe would however continue to guide the ALKQN members who now totaled about 2000 members both incarcerated and free. In 1994 with the rapid growth of the Latin Kings, an internal power struggle erupted and violence within the Kings ensued. Between June 1993 and February 1994, seven Latin Kings were murdered. Following the Outbreaks of internal gang violence Luis Felipe and 19 others were charged with murder and racketeering, the indictments would end in 1995 with 39 Latin 1 Latin Kings and Queen indicted under the RICO Act. [2]

The details of the charges against Felipe would later become known. Felipe was charged with ordering the killing of William (Lil Man) Cartegena. Cartegena was taken to an abandoned Bronx apartment where he was strangled, decapitated, mutilated and his corpse set on fire. Felipe Cartagena murdered allegedly for theft from the organization. [5]
[edit] Reformation: 1995 --

In 1996, following the trial of Luis Felipe, Antonio Fernandez [14] who was recently blessed as the Inca and Supreme Crown of the New York State and New Jersey [15], kneeled with other Latin Kings in front of the Federal District Court in Manhattan and is quoted as stating: It's time for a fresh start ... Now they can not hold our past against us. 1996 is believed to be the beginning of the ALKQN's transformation from a street gang to a "street organization."

Latin Kings and Queens begin en mass Appearing at political demonstrations in support of the Latino community. To further its transformation and efforts to legitimize, the organization begins to hold its monthly meetings (universals) at St. Marys Episcopal Church in West Harlem. At this time the membership of the Latin Kings is believed to have swelled to 3.000 and 4.000 free incarcerated. The monthly universals are drawing in an attendance of 500-600 regularly. Internal changes to the organization begin to take place as Fernandez ALKQN amended the manifesto to include parliamentary elections and new procedures for handling inter-organizational grievances and removing death as a possible punishment, replacing it with "vanishing," the act of being Banished from the movement. [2]

For the ALKQN, 1997 begins with Felipe being sentenced to the harshest penalty passed down since World War II, Felipe is sentenced to 250 years in prison, the first 45 to be spent in Solitary confinement. The other 39 members were sentenced to an average of 20 years in prison for their roles in the crimes. The year would bring further legal troubles as Fernandez and 31 others are arrested in a raid in the Lower East Side and charged with disorderly conduct. The Special Commissioner of Investigation for Schools soon after the charges ALKQN with infiltrating the school system, a school security guard with five years of service is dismissed on charges of unprofessional conduct for his association. The year comes to a close with Fernandez being arrested in December by the FBI for domestic abuse. [2]

The pending charges against Fernandez were dropped in early 1998. Following the release of Fernandez, a joint operation of the FBI, New York City Police Department (NYPD), Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), the New York State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) comes to a close with the arrests of 92 suspected members ALKQN. The Latin King leadership insists over half of those arrested are not members. The operation, dubbed Operation Crown, cost the city over one million dollars and took 19 months to complete.

Fernandez was released after four days on $ 350,000 bail, which was paid for by contributions from community members. Over half of the arrested were charged with misdemeanors, other were charged with weapons possession and drug trafficking. Fernandez was eventually permitted, though on house arrest, to attend monthly meetings universal. It was during his time on house arrest that the Latin Queens underwent a shake up in leadership, dismissing many of the leaders in order to bring in more politically focused members. [2]

The Latin Kings during this period begin to Gain Legitimacy. First, Lolita Lebron, who was a member of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party, appointed the New York State ALKQN to protect her during a demonstration in front of the United Nations. Following the UN demonstration, Rafael Cancel-Miranda, a Puerto Rican Nacionalista who spent 25 years in federal prison, attended a monthly universal. Before years' end, Adelfa Vera, Puerto Rican activist, attended a monthly universal and was given ALKQN sacred beads by the present leadership. Adelfa was praised during the meeting and stated "These kids are our hope for Liberation struggle. I can die in peace, because we found the continuation" [2]

In 1998 Fernandez [16] pleaded guilty to conspiracy to sell and distribute heroin. In 1999 he was sentenced to 13 years in prison, which he is serving at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in Kansas and was placed in Solitary confinement. He was eventually transferred again and placed in general population.
[edit] Latin Queens

While originally the Latin Kings are thought to be a male organization, it eventually began to absorb women and give them an equal share. The Latin Queens constituted the female half of the ALKQN. [6]

The Latin Queen's agenda is composed of self-respect, independence, family support, ethnic identity and self-empowerment. Seeking such goals has attracted a wide variety of females who had been drug addicted, victimized and / or neglected by families, Spouses and partners. Sociologists studying the Latin Kings and Queens have observed the different methods in which both groups attempt to "reclaim and regulate" their environments. The Latin Queens are believed to focus more on their private space issues such as home life and Protection and Nurturing of their bodies, as opposed to the Latin Kings, who are more Concerned with loss of public spaces in their own communities. [6]

The evolution of the ALKQN has been viewed by outside sources as being assisted by the addition and greater role in Latin Queens which have played, exposing the ALKQN to a greater range of cross-class supporters than would have been possible prior to their integration. [ 6] In regions such as Spain, Latin Queens are helping to legitimize the ALKQN through integration with government sponsored programs. In Catalonia, the 200 person Latin Kings and Queens tribe was designated as the Cultural Association of Latin Kings and Queens of Catalonia. The "cultural programs" designation was bestowed through government sponsored programs to assist Gangs with integration into society and is led by Latin Queen Melody, Erika Jaramillo. [7]
