52 Hoover Gangster Crips

52 Hoover Gangster Crips [52HGC, Five Deuce] are a predominately African-American street gang located in the Vermont-Slauson community of South LA in the City of Los Angeles. They are connected to both the Gangster alliance and the Hoover alliance and formed during the late 1970s. Historically the Five Deuce Hoovers are closely aligned with the Five Deuce Broadway Gangster Crips.

The FDH are the only Hoover set of the eight separate Hoover sets that does not follow the naming convention of “HCG” or “Hoover Crip Gang” like the other seven sets. Additionally, when the seven HCG sets decided to drop the Crip for Criminal around 1994, the FDH were the only one that did not take on that identity.

The 52 HGCs also have a very close alliance with the 51st Street Trouble Gangster Crips (51 TGC), a tagger crew that turned gang during the late 1990s, that are geographically located directly to the west of their neighborhood.

On October 12, 1984 members of the FDHs were victimized in one of the most deadly shootings in Los Angeles history when 10 people were shot and five killed, all teenagers, in what later became known as the “54th Street Massacre.” Within days, the Los Angeles Police Department arrested three members of the Van Ness Gangster Bloods, Keith “Ase Kapone” Fudge, 18, Fred “Fat Fred” Knight and Harold Hall, 22. In 1989, Knight, who weighed 270 pounds did not match the description of any of the witnesses was acquitted. Fudge on the other hand was convicted and sentenced to death and is currently incarcerated on death row in San Quentin Prison.

    The neighborhood of 52nd and Hoover is like all Mexican. How can blacks continue the crips and bloods when mexicans are moving in and taking over the neighborhoods? Last time I heard South Central Los Angeles was like 50% Latino.

  16. Just want to live

    You gangsters are all weak if you want to ki*l just enlist in the military. You guys are not men`s you were raised by your mother`s only so you don`t know anything about being men`s. All of you can`t read or write so it`s not your fault you say gangsters only know about white t-shirts and cars. But you wait your time will come soon many of you have kids so you wait and see what the outcome will be for them.

    Its easy to stay true when you have fifty gangs on your side. For years it was all the rollers and nhc against the etg and hoovas. The only hoovas that’s turnt is 52,74 and 83. Them and they ETG are the only ones pushing lines on the nhc. Even with all them gangs you named them four go toe to toe with y’all.

  22. Exactly what I was looking for, thank you for putting up.
