Howe to read American gang graffiti #14

Beverly Blvd & Oford Ave. L.A, Ca

18th Street gang graf. This gang has a large if not largest membership base and includes many ethnicities. The gang’s operational territory is very large as well, ranging from in roads in the south Bay area of L.A County to San Fernando Valley This graf is located in the S. E part of Korea Town.What is pertinent about this graf is the “cross out” of a rival. “Pisas” are what Mexican Nationals call each other and is equivalent to the Italian “pisano”. Interesting note is the fierce hatred and competition among the Mexican American gangs and the Mexican National gang.
