Visit to the Four Corners of Death in Southeast San Diego

By Alex A. Alonso for StreetGangs.Com
March 10, 2010

The corner of Euclid and Imperial in Southeast San Diego is known as the 4 (Four) Corners of Death, so we decided to take a trip to this notorious intersection. Upon our arrival, we witnessed a young man being chased down Imperial avenue by the San Diego Police Department. He was caught and placed under arrest right before our cameras were rolling.

The police in San Diego would not acknowledge that this intersection was known as the 4 Corners of Death. Many people we spoke to in the community have acknowledged that the corner is known by that name because it has a violent reputation, but in recent years crime has dropped in this part of San Diego.

    Alex, you should have gone to the catfish place next store to the Green Cat liqour….they have awesome fried catfish…! While you are in SD, check out the bloods in Lincoln Park area. That whole area there at 4 corners is gang-land area. Go down near Memorial Junior High and you will find more…If you want a grand tour, let me know, Email me.

        Menass got schooled! Man u got a big mouth for a vato that doesn’t know jack about SD. Give it up already! You don’t impress anyone with your claims that taggers and EST run the streets of SD. The complete opposite in the truth. Taggers and EST don’t run jackshit in 619. And another thing-you are a myspace banger. all the info you try to drop in the forums is straight from the myspace pages of junior high cholos.

  3. CrackerJack

    Nah Lill, this about 15 miles south of Escondido. This is off the 94 fwy in San Diego city.

  4. flagrant

    4 Corners of death aint no joke, but it aint like it used to be. Funny seeing the cops denying it, they used to deny that we had street gangs in SD.

        foo bap has dxa x3 already what u talkin about!!!

        • BigMac

          So like I said above..you think wallbanging the X3 makes for a legit varrio? The only work BAP put in is tugging on Logan Nutz. All those fools from BITCH ASS PUSSYS got rejected from Logan and SE13LKS. So maybe one head from BAP did a couple of years at mule creek and earned HIS X3 picking up a shot callers laundry. Doesn’t mean the rest of those rejects get the right to clam X3.

          SEX3LKS have territory too menso.

        • spokexs

          i never said they didnt have territory every click has a territory! u dum fuck i said there are clicks not varrios

        • menace

          73 dont have the 13 foo u fuckin stupid they are green light in the pinta!!
          thats why they dont say 73 when they get locked they say sexsd. n whats the point of
          having a territory if u dont kickit there. they r scare of coming out to dxa park..
          all u see is foos from shell town posted on ov and mountain view park!! i say
          it cus i go thru there olmost every day…. if u ask me 38 st is the hardest barrio in
          southeast san diego it used to be logan but not no mores.. logan started loseing
          respect from other varrios cus logan let other clicks kickit in their hood but at the
          same time logan started to get dipper..
          ….u dont see 73 hit up any
          where just in their zone.. when was the last time u heard 73 puttinit work.. i never
          heard of 73 gettin sherman back cus they kill downer.. never homeboy…

        • MENANUS

          And quit droppin names you snitch ass mf—-
          You were all over 73 nutz a little while ago in the forums saying the opposite…that ST was lame and 73 puts in all the work. get you fake game straight at least!

        • MENANUS

          HAHAAH Menace the fake ass fool is back! You don’t kno shit except for stuff you get off of myspace pages!

        • BigMac

          Ahhh now tour all butt hurt! So youre a fake ass! First you claim your Menace-now your spokes.

          73 bangs harder than most of the varrios you might want to compare them to do. They pushed ST out of turf and now control a whole area of SESD. Thats why they hitup MOUNTAIN VIEW 73 LS now. They stepped up to bat. Not like all those 1000 other weenie taggers in SE who just claim the whole side of SE. All those other taggers in the Mountain View area fear ST and SEX3LKS except for 73LS. All those taggers talk masa, but don’t back it up in the calles. 73 talks the talk and walks the walk.The reason you call them a klicka is because you probably got beef with them. Just like ST, MKT, SM…call them a klicka just to talk masa. But they all know that 73 is legit. Just ask fools from ST about all the heads they lost from beffin with 73 (many). Then ask then about heads they lost from OEK//KN/WK/KP/ALS(maybe one).

          No one has been able to take that hood (neighborhood, AKA varrio) back from 73 . And since when did 73 stand up on a mic and say “we are not a gang…we are taggers”. Homie 73 is as gangster as you can get. More so that lames from OTSD, Poway, VNP, Mira Mesa….

          Funny thing is 73 don’t hitup X3..but they earned the right to, more than a bunch of other gangs in SD. But they do hit up VMV73LS sometimes. So we all should just not consider the a varrio because you don’t. OK.

          And SEX3LKS is a varrio straight and simple. Maybe your confusing them with those lames called SESDX3. LKS got 20 years in as a gang-not as tagbangers. They never were a tagging crew. Check your history on that. They may be new relative to what you and me think but not as new as all those varrios popping up in north and east county. LKS has a well defined hood too.

          In my opinion: Claiming a well defined hood+putting real work in (not wallbanging)=varrio.

          Your opinion of a varrio: wallbanging the X3

          B.T.W. not all klickas have turf. I don’t call claiming all of SE or SS, or claiming dead end streets when you don’t live there holding turf. Give me one good example of a klicka that legitimately holds turf. When klickas begn legitimatley holding turf-they turn into varrios. Like MV73LS did! Funny… OE,BAP, PBZ, TNS, WK, SOK ,KN,KP,CM, SET, MBK, CLB, JBK all claim streets, but they are streets that are legitimately controlled by varrios. And thos taggers all bow down to the varrios that control those hoods. See the difference meso? 73 doesn’t bow down to ST, SM, MKT. They do their own thing in their own varrio. Reminds me of Calle 32 SKA.

        • big drifts

          To the homie sucking 73’s dick just to let u know those homies are green lighted in the county and most pc up or claim resident no matter how u cut their no good homie. real talk active N bangin since 95.

        • SEXTKS

          The key here is 73 is greenlighted in COUNTY-not the pen. They were green lighted by a varrio they didn’t get along with-not the big dogs. Why were 73 listed??? Because they put a lot of heads from that varrio to sleep. And 73-they took control of part of that varrios hood. Thats why they are on luz. One varrio put them on luz. 73 ain’t no joke-they made that varrio look like chumps. Taggers straight out came in and stole part of a varrios hood! And they still post in that area! You don’t get the light for being wanksters. 73 handles buisness. They may not have gotten the blessing for X3-but they gaet down more than some of the other hoods that claim X3. Now thats real talk.

    I noticed that the Starbucks that was at the 4 corners of meth didn’t last long. What were they thinking? That Gang Bangers would forsake their crack for a tall latte? Can’t you just see the bangers hanging outside of the Starbucks sipping on their Iced Tea and talking about who they gonna smoke next?

    • Charro-go to the hood more

      im pretty sure starbucks is still there (i live in LA now, but i still go back like once or twice a month) and i know for a fact that food 4 less, magnolia’s, and L&L hawaiian are still there. if the starbucks did close, it’s because a whole lot of starbucks stores are closing, the company over-expanded over the past couple years and had to shut down alot of their stores. your ignorance is astounding, gang activity exists in southeast san diego, but it is not like everyone there is a gang banger. probably less than 5% are. and crack is not that big of a problem anymore, it is pretty hard to come by in san diego.

      • PJ

        Yup, that Starbucks is still there – I was just over there, a couple weeks ago – it’s August 2015… They still bangin’ over there, too.

    • nancy

      I’ve lived near this corner for a couple years and there has not been a Starbucks located
      there during that time. However, there is a Starbucks located a few blocks north @ Euclid
      and Naranja. People are sitting outside the Starbucks enjoying their tall Lattes and Iced
      Tea and each others company on most days.

    Samahang Dugong Pinoy abbreviated SDP, is a Filipino gang. Starting in the 1990s in the Southern California area, the group has expanded to other areas of California. The gang is known to have chapters (or at least a couple of members) in San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego, Escondido, Riverside, Washington and Nevada. These chapters, as they are called, are created when a member’s parents relocate their child to a different city in an attempt to “move” their son(s) away from trouble. Members are known to have committed crimes such as shootings, shoplifting, underage drinking, drive-by’s, heavenly armed, and very dangerous. Rival gangs include Asian Boyz(ABZ), WashKlan Family Crips(WKFC), Asian Crips(AC), Tiny Oriental Crips(TOC), State Side Islanders(SSI)
