Top Ten Worst Gangs: Bloods
The Bloods: a Los Angeles based gang. Rivals with the Crips, who sport the color blue, the Bloods flash red as their color. The gang started in 1972 and grew slowly by taking over territory that was controlled by other L.A. street gangs. Because the Bloods were so fearless, many of the gang members that they encountered decided to band together and join the Bloods. The gang is separated into “sets,” which have their own tactics, especially when it comes to recruiting. The Bloods’ sets utilize the unusual tactic of sending threats to people to join the gang. Bloods members often combine with other gangs in order to carry out criminal activity, especially drug trafficking.
