Just curious? When the police officer was shot in Oak Hill the names Crips and Blood came up. I recently saw Blood painted on the post office in East Beckley. Are they located in Beckley or do they just pass through. Maybe something everyone needs to know to stay safe. Thanks!

I think they pass threw right now..but would not be shocked if we had some pop up here soon. The cops here try to keep this sort of thing under wraps around here..I guess to make it look like all is well..not a good idea to do that sort of thing IMO.

There aren't any gangs in Beckley, just some people who think they are hard that like to dress in the same color and walk around. Gayness

I was a correctional officer for 10 years, in that time I have met the leaders and many of its members.

You will see two major factions here, one wears read clothing, red caps etc... Then you will see all black colors being worn, shirt, cap etc...

Hargrove Street near the low income apartments, all the way up to the corner shop have activity all the time.

I will say it again that the west coast gangs send their members to our area for recruiting and for hiding.

Yeah but what gangs are the the Bloods? What wears black? Not the crips...that maybe true about the west coast I dont know..but I see more Michigan, Ohio people being busted and East Coast. I see people walking so I will pay closer attn..they must be in groups then...most gangsters are.

I have heard of both of them...I watch Gangland..very good informative show..is that why all the Mexicans all the sudden? MS13 is a Mexican gang..and the GD a black gang out of Chicago..wonder why the cops are keeping their mouths shut do they even know or just playing dumb then?

Then you know MS13 is hispanic in origion (el Salvador), but doesn't discriminate racially when recruiting. That's why it's the largest gang on our planet. Drive around town & pay attention to the graffiti. Notice gang 'tags' end in Glen Morgan. Too many armed citizens in the Shady Spring district for them.IMO Ambrosio at Rio Allowed Beckley to be invaded by MS-13,"trece". Manuel has taken the local's side in this growing dilemma , so I eat at El Toro now. Remembe: stay aware, stay alive!

You are saying that business owners here support them? I just dont see it taking hold with a lot of white kids..hate to say it but a lot of Beckley is a not a melting pot..I rarely see a white kid with a hispanic..black yes hispanic no. I have not seen these gang tags...mainly a little graffiti..where are soem of the tags at so we can go look?
