Hey, Im from Australia, I am a teenager and still attend school. We have alot of multicultural gang related happenings in our schools and all, but I have been reading up on the Latin Kings recently, as i am of hispanic background up the track, and I have defintely noticed that they seem more like a structured organization. It is deffintely something that is honourable and it almost seems like a giant family!? It would be great to see something like this down under??? whats your thoughts.....

Hey el paco, I love to hear someone say that they want to join the nation for good reasons. But you have to understand that many brothers and sisters in this nation have difference agendas. We need kings like you. I hope you mean what you said and remember this. we are all kings from birth, joining the nation is a matter of finding the light. You will have your time. While you;re still young, please finish school and become somebody so that when you do join the nation, you could show the brothers and sisters that one can accomplish their goals, even as kings and queens.

LATIN KINGS I for one respect them and thier cause from a hispanic I truley respect them even though some have their ways (bad seeds)how different are they from police officer, goverment and top officials like ENRON, LATIN KINGS are about defending the people of their cultures(hispanics) and defending my right to show the world of my culture and talent I fully support them with all my heart and my love goes out to the BROTHERS and FAMILY MEMBERS I have in NATION.

I respect the "Latin King" that lives according to the lectures and laws. I have no respect for those that have used the organization for crimes. To defend ones culture signifies doing the right thing and obeying the law always. You are right, there are bad seeds in every profession, I have been saying this all along, but why be the same way they are? The Latin King organization was not created for the crimes it now has. The purpose has been destroyed and yet knowing that this still continues you turn your eyes away because these are brothers and sisters. Why would you allow brothers and sisters to take away the meaning? I can't understand so please explain it to me!!!!

As a parent I am worried, because I send my child to school only to worry if it is safe. Another thing is that these young kids are pulled into gangs by fear of standing alone or not being part of a group. I hate to say this but even when they don't want to be part of it they are force to stay. It's not easy to tell some one because the some one is not always there to protect. If you know what I mean. So who is in control? These young kids that belong to so called gangs, that only respect their own members, and only if they remain members. So what is a parent to do?

I ran into this web site by chance. The truth is I have a daughter that has a boyfriend that claims to be a latin king. Her grades has gone down and she even dress different, not to mention that she thinks she knows every-thing now. My son one year older then her, his grades also down, tells me that being a latin king is not bad, yet the change is not good. They disrespect, they go out without saying where. Other times they say they have to go to meetings, what meeting, to learn what knowledge?
First learn what you go to school for, is what I tell them. I don't know much about latin kings, except that to me it's a gang that has changed my two children and for being an organization, they are drafting children and making all our world a world of suffering.

Well, if the Latin Kings want to be a legal organization in the United States, and they wish to get our young children involved in their organization, then I believe they are going to have to change and really update their rules and bylaws of membership.
Example:(1) When dealing with minors, parents should be involved.(At present kids are telling their parent to shut up and walk out the door, just to go hang out.)
(2) If you are going to have kids learning about their culture (knowledge) then you should try to see how it could be incorporated into the education system for credit.(Being legal and all.)
(3) Instead of just hanging out, put your young well-educated members to help tutor others in need of scholastic help. This will benefit every one.
(4) If members are required to go to meetings, then they should be required to volunteer some of their time to help in the community as Latin Kings either tutoring, or helping the elderly or homeless.
(5) For minors the rules should include NO SMOKING, NO DRINKING ALCOHOL, and NO DRUGS.
If the Latin Kings truly and really want to become legal and law biding citizen, then these are a few thing that come to mind. If you want people and society to see the Latin Kings as a respectful organization in good standing in the community, then you must change your image that shows respect and honor for every one. You must start by educating and improving our youth and your members, that at the present are just hanging out in corners, dressing in colors to rep, and some doing poorly in school if they are going to school and showing disrespect, proudly saying they are Latin Kings.
If they want to be Latin Kings then a King has its best interest for its people. So, why donít you Latin Kings leaders start organizing and do something (RIGHT) about it!

Hello, as a mother of children and one a latin King i find it my responsibility to respond to you. I truly feel what you are saying but there are things that by reading your concerns you do not know. The Latin Kings do have laws that are positive in every way. Education is one of those laws. I don't know if you are actually from PA but if you are then I will address that too. My son was doing great here, doing what you are suppose to do within the literatures and laws that are provided. I have read them and they are positive. He thought that he can change the borthers and sisters from PA and would not listen to me when I strongly advised him that you can't change what a person is accustomed to. PA is a neighborhood that I would never go live in. I say this because I had to endure PA for several months while I was there. My son is facing serious time because those so call PA Latin Kings did not want to turn their life away so decided to talk about situations that they themselve were responsible for. I advise you to do what you must for both your children. Do not loose them because the Latin Kings in your area only are about themselves and do not follow what they should be following. The latin Kings in PA are full of negativity and violence and that was not the reason why our people started this organization. Tell you children that there is someone out there that knows and yet is not part of the orginization. Tell them my son is King Homicide and you will probably get a very negative reaction by them because Allentown did not want to change their ways. Please keep me inform because I am concern for you and your children. You are right, you really cannot go to anyone because they cannot be trust. I know I was treated like a criminal when I have always been a law-abiding citizen. Good Luck!!

Tell you daughter that a true Queen does not disrespect her mother. That the literatures strongly emphasizes this. Tell you son to open his eyes because the brothers in PA are phoney. If he gets in trouble with them, there will be some that will cast their blame on him. I have witnessed this for my son's trial and yet they have the nerve to call themselves manitos. Tell you daughter that there were several manitas that took the stand during my son's trial lying about the brothers and one sister that took it to trial. PA does not hold the true significance of what a "Latin King" represents. As a mother, I really understand you. In my neighborhood our Latin Kings follow the lectures and by laws. They do get their education, go to work, and respect at all times. There are only a very few of the true ones. Please do not let PA take your children away from you. If you must be hard on them in a way that they tell you they hate you, do it. I have been to PA and it is really terrible out their with these people. Put your foot down and take the role that you have. One day they will thank you. My heart goes out to you!!!

PA Latin Kings are full of it. I am not a member but a mother of one and I know the difference between a true brother and one that is phoney. I had to visit PA and these brothers are full of negativity, violence, and crime. I don't know what is happening in the homes of these young people but PA is no place to raise a child. I am not saying I live in a good neighborhood because I have also seen the worst. I thought I did until I had to step foot in Phillie. Nothing can beat that environment. To my eyes, there is no hope for our children there and probably that is the only reason why they feel the need to join. Good luck in trying for your children!! I think the only way to win is to get out!!

Thank you for your words, but as hard as I try My children think I am wrong. I can say anything about the Latin Kings. Yet I pray and pray that they notice just how bad they are acting and harming themselves. Their school work is really stating to go on the red. As for respect, I have lost that fight. The responce to any corrections I'll go live with some else, they will let me stay with them. Latin King is their Family now, and I will just have to accept it according to them. There is no one out there to help with this problem, I'm lost and my children are lost to me.

I guess I really donít know much about the Latin Kings. My kids say that not all Latin Kings are bad, that there are different tribes, and that they fight with each other at times. Again I ask how is it that the Latin Kings can be one organization with so many heads, or members that refuse to show respect or good character and abide by the Latin kings rules and follow the law. How is it that if they are organized, then why do they allow bad influence to control our children in the name of the Latin Kings. Why do they not drop, not beat those that are not in good standing? How can they not know that our young children are walking the street, disrespecting at home. Just by the way they dress and talk one can see they try to intimidate those around. Why is it our young children are kept out late, hanging around as they say, when asked where have they been. Who is monitoring their young Latin King members, to make sure they deserve to be part of the so-called Latin Kings Nation and not Latin king hoodlums. If they canít respect at home, how on earth can they respect themselves, the organization, the law. Why the fear of not attending the meetings, of if they want out, fear they may get hurt. Please, when are the good, true Latin Kings if any, going to go out into the community and clean up their mess, and help our children be children again, where the only thing they have to worry about is getting good grades in school.

I wish I can say some encouraging words to you but there is not. You cannot loose has a mother. You said it yourself, your children are still under age. You have to put your foot down even if it means that your children is going to hate you. No matter where they go, they are still underage. There is no different tribes but different chapters. These so call tribes, as your children are calling it, are the same one that is giving it a bad name. PA is no good and do not tolerate the fact that your children disrespect you. I come from a P.R. household, and what I had to go through when I did something that my mother felt it deserving for correctness I have done to my own and trust me even after their legal age. Do not let your children disrespect you!!!! Love also includes discipline!!!God luck!!

I just got back from trying to find them, I don't know where they go after school. I'm sorry, but I try to tell them that they can't stay away, but they just walk out. I don't think hitting is the answer, it just make it worst. I don't know what to do.

Sometimes one good one is all it takes. Hitting is not the answer but neither is your way. Obviously your words do nothing to them because they are disobedient and do not care what you say. They already know that you will do nothing. It sounds like you are a very religious woman, and if that's true, I admire you. But when someone needs discipline, it should be given. Let me tell you, all my children are of age and yes, I have whooped their tail, I have grounded them, and I have been a friend when they needed one. At all times, except when I was the friend they needed, they knew I was their mother and they knew what I was capable of. I do not fear anyone but God. I will walk into anyones home if it meant protecting my children while they were under my wings. I don't mean to get into your affairs but you really need to do something. I don't know who you are but by what I am reading you are not a strong person when it comes to disciplining your children. You can't give up on your children. A mother should always be a mother. I am not saying that you are not one but by what I am reading you seem not to have the courage or strength. Please, do not give up on your children because the Latin Kings in Phillie will only have them in jail or underground!! Call out to people, your children are under age and their has to be someone or something out there to help you! Don't give up on them!! You are killing yourself worrying about them because you know nothing in reference to where they are at!!! Call out and do what a mother should do!!! Good luck!!

I'm not weak, it's just that to hit them mean showing them violence. Violence that they say they don't get from the Latin Kings. So they say to hit them would mean walking out of the house and not come back. I sometimes feel they know they are wrong, but are very hard headed and proud to say they are wrong. I'm hoping that if enough good and true to the cause, that my letters get out there and start a dramatic change. Kids like they idea of being Latin Kings because they don't have to follow any true disapline. They hang out, do nothing and and not worry about being in the street, because there is alway some one ready to take them in. I just wish I knew who these people are, so I can show them, they are my kids. I'v seen one or two of the young kids smoking and just waiting outside for my son. Calling out to hurry out, they hear me saying, I don't want you to go out, that he really needs to study. they just look at me and laugh. My son says, if I don't want to look stupit, them stop talking, because he not going to change, and his friends don't like it when I say anything bad about the Latin Kings he is with. He saya I disrespectful, not his friends. So you see, they seem to know that they have control, since they can hide and get my childre to leave home.

Hi Rosa,
Read on the other site you left time!! Congratulations!! PA is no place for children especially with those phoney latin kings. I have not met one that is a true king and I had to endure being in PA for a while. They don't care about anyone but themselves, hurt one another, and when caught blames it on the other brother or sister. I know I lived it and heard it all. I wish you luck and I really pray that this what happened was an eye opener for your son. I never said you were weak so I apologize if that is how you took it. What I wanted to get across to you that with these people you have to fight back and show them you are not afraid. As far as the government side in PA, they are corrupted. I was treated like a criminal and they did an injustice to my son and still are doing it. You can't confide in those people but hey, that is my view point and I am not from there.
