West Side Pirus in Compton

West Side Pirus [WSP] are a predominately African-American street gang located on the westside of Compton, CA. They were originally known as the Piru Street Boys founded around 1969 by Sylvester Scott and Vincent Owens making them one of the oldest Black gangs in LA County. The founders named their gang, Piru, after the street they lived on in the western section of Compton.

When Raymond Washington was attempting to transform street groups into the Crips, he was able to convince the leadership of the Pirus to embrace the Crip’s identity for a very short time in 1970. That relationship was severed because the Pirus had already been engaged in conflict with Mac Thomas and the Compton Crips.

The Pirus eventually broke away from the Crips, severing all ties, and then became one of the main rivals to the Crips. In from 1971 to 1973 the violence between the Pirus and the Crips in Compton escalated resulting in several murders.

  17. not_a_banger

    you all are animals especially all you blood sets you fly the red flag the 5 point star so why are you all fighting other bloods i dont think the founders of the BlOODS or the CRIPS wanted you all to fight your own gangs i meen that just puts a bad name on your whole gang… you can say all you want rep yo set but know at the end of the day you take a risk of getting beat down or having your mother cry over you because she has to see her 18 or 25 year old son in a casket. im only 15 years old and i know that the gang life only gets you two things dead or locked up. so why dont you all do your selves a favor and put the guns down and the words up.
