Crip Gangs in Willowbrook, Unincorporated Los Angeles County
After the end of the Depression and World War II, increasing suburban development occurred in Willowbrook, but not to the extent that it substantially altered the area’s rural character. Even the 1965, the Watts Riots did not change that, although Willowbrook suffered damage to a number of its buildings, including Willowbrook’s community library. Present-day Willowbrook appears similar to other communities in the South Central section of Los Angeles.
According to the 2008 census, the total population of Willowbrook is 34,215 with 28.9% of residents declared as White, .5% are Asian, and 42.5% are Black or African American.

Also, 23.1% of families and 25.8% of individuals live below the poverty line.
Several of the gangs in Willowbrook identify with Compton because of the close proximity to the northern border with the City.
