Blood (Piru) Gangs in Compton, California

Home > Blood Gangs > Compton Pirus

Compton is a city in the center of Los Angeles County, just southeast of downtown Los Angeles. It is sometimes known as the “Hub City” due to its central geographic location within the county. The city has a total area of 10.2 sq. miles. It is one of the oldest cities in the county, incorporated as the eight city in 1889. The city was named after its settler, Griffith Dickenson Compton, when he settled in the area in 1867.

In the late 1940s, middle class African-Americans began moving into the area, particularly in the western area. Whites dominated the east side of Compton until the 1970s. In 1969, Douglas Dollarhide became the first African-American mayor of a metropolitan city in California when he became mayor of Compton. By 1970, the city had one of the largest concentrations of African-Americans in the country with over 90%.

According to the 2008 census, Compton contains 97,300 residents. Those with Hispanic in their makeup were recorded at 64.9 percent, Black or African American are 32.2% of the population, 27 percent are White, and only 0.1% are Asian. Compton has a growing Pacific Islander community with a current resident population percentage of 1.2 percent. Residents with a Bachelor’s degree were 6.8 percent of the population and 57.2 percent graduated from high school. Individuals living below the poverty line were at 24 percent and families were at 21.8 percent.

All the Blood gangs in Compton identify as Piru, an identity started in 1969 by Vincent Owens and Sylvester “Puddin” Scott when they started the Piru Street Boys. Today, being a Piru is synonymous with being a Blood, but during the early 1970s, they had a short lived alliance with Raymond Washington and the East Side Crips but because of their conflict with Mac Thomas and the Compton Crips the Piru Boys eventually became rivals with all Crips.

By 1972, the Pirus had forged an alliance with other Los Angeles neighborhoods that were having conflict with the Crips and several years later that alliance became known as the Bloods (approximately 1977 or 1978).

        Both Sylvester Scott and Vincent Owens were from Piru Street in Compton? Are they the Orginal founders of the Bloods? Or were their other Blood sets before they started the Piru Street Bloods? Also why can’t we find any photo’s of either of those Kats on the net?

      • I m confused about your postion here on this site,you need not tell peolpe where other hoods reside at, if they dont already know ,this mean they not from the hood or of the hoods, I got on this site to make a diffrence and to assit you in bring gangs closer together not pin pointing where to find them and destroy them, becareful about the info you give out to the youth, you also can be held acounntable for young deaths in these small citys and sent to prison, to face us.
