The thing is we all in Europe and in London, theres no colours, no dress style like that which looks like a finely turned out version of our Yanky cousins ting. On the surface of things, me being a Brit can't tell the difference between those peeps and the American thing.
Interesting. But theres things about it I dont get, so I've got questions -
Was the set started by an American moved to Holland?
Why did a Crip set begin in Holland? What was the motivation to begin there?
Were there Dutch groups/gangs which were a threat to pre-Crip Dutch in the Hague?
Who's the rivals?
Being so indentifiable, don't the cops come down on you all the time?
Ain't it being like walking targets for other non-coloured up crews who can melt away without standing out? Or is the blue for display and not for beef?
Its all very interesting but you gotta understand that interested peeps in the US are going to need some convincing, because naturally, its seen as thier baby get me.
I'm asking these questions because their is a perception that in NL, things aren't so hard for peeps - now I'm ready to learn the other side and want to hear your view - but we heard that NL has one of the best social security systems worldwide, that everybody gets access to decent housing and good support from the state when out of work. So its a suprise I guess. But I don't really get it, so please break it down?
There was a member of the Main Triad Crips on this forum and he could have answer all your questions,but he isn't active on this forum no more.First i got to say i don't know MTC members.But i will answer your questions the best way i can.The founders of the MTC-set are Dutch/Suriname people.No Americans were involved,they do got connection with an American set.I think it was Rollin 40,but i am not sure.
On the motivation-thing i can not say,i don't know them.The biggest rivals are known criminals,MTC-members excell in rip-deals.Their biggest rivals are not Blood gangs or Crip gangs.They don't want that L.A. bulls.hit in Holland.Exterminating themselves.About the cops,they did get raided a couple of times.Because they posed for a Dutch magazine in Holland,all flamed up with guns and shit.But the Hells Angels can walk with there colours,so they can walk with there colours.For the other questions,i can't answer because i don't know them.I will try to contact MTC member who was on this forum.
