Blood Piru Knowledge

Blood Piru Knowledge

By 1972, the Crips from Compton and the Piru Street Boys were entrenched in a gang war. The Crips had murdered a member of the LA Brims. As a result of that murder, the Piru Street Boys, the Brims, Denver lanes, Bishops, and other gangs met on West Piru Street in Compton to form a “Blood Alliance” thus creating the “Bloods” to combat the Crips. The Crips were wearing blue bandanas so the Blood Alliance gangs wanted to wear red, which was also the only other color available at the time in the local convenience stores.

Development of the Bloods on the East Coast
The United Blood Nation, simply called the Bloods, formed in 1993, within the New York City jail system on Rikers Island’s GMDC (George Mochen Detention Center), sometimes called C-73. GMDC was used to segregate problem inmates from the rest of the detention center. Prior to this time period, the Latin Kings were the most prevalent and organized gang in the NYC jail system. The Latin Kings, along with the Netas, with mostly Hispanic members, were targeting African American inmates with violence. These African American inmates, organized by some of the more violent and charismatic inmates, formed a protection group which they called the United Blood Nation. This United Blood Nation, which was actually a prison gang, was emulating the Bloods street gangs in Los Angeles, California. Several of the leaders of this recently created prison gang formed eight original Blood sets to recruit in their neighborhoods across New York City. These original sets were: Mad Stone Villains (MSV), Valentine Bloods (VB), Nine Trey Gangsters (NTG), Gangster Killer Bloods (GKB), One Eight Trey (183) Bloods, Hit Squad Brims (HSB), Blood Stone Villains (BSV) and Sex, Money and Murder (SMM).

By 1996, thousands of members of the Bloods street gang were establishing themselves as a formidable force among gangs and continued a steady drive for recruitment. At this time, the Bloods were more violent than other gangs but much less organized. Numerous slashings (razor blade or knife attacks) were reported during robberies and discovered to be initiations into the Bloods. This blood-in ritual became the trademark for the Bloods. Bloods recruited throughout the East Coast and began spreading their drug networks rapidly. Blood gangs can be found in the New York City area, Upper New York State, New Jersey, Baltimore, Hagerstown, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Connecticut to name a few.

Recently, Blood gangs have become a favorite target of law enforcement because of their connection to violence. Bloods will commit violence against other Blood sets and there is no direct regional or national leadership or connections. According to some sources, East Coast Bloods and West Coast Bloods conducted a series of meetings in 1999 and formed the United Blood Nation as a way to align all Blood gangs as one nation for the purposes of power and unity. This alleged unification resulted in the Bloods referring to themselves as “Damu,” a Swahili word synonymous for Blood.

Bloods refer to each other as Dawgs (DOGS). They will burn an upside down triangular shape, looking like a dog paw, on their upper arm. The three circular burns, usually from a cigarette, can be found on a member of the Bloods. Some Bloods will have a tattoo of a dog, usually a bulldog, like the Mack Truck logo. Bloods will also use the acronym M.O.B. (Member Of Blood or Money Over Bitches) to identify themselves. This can be seen as a burn scar or (sometimes) a tattoo. The Bloods have recently, in the year 2000, become more involved and connected to their People Nation affiliation. The Bloods are the most violent gang on the East Coast.
