Blood Line (BL) prison gang member explains misconceptions associated with his membership

STREETGANGS.COM | February 6, 2015

SOUTH LOS ANGELES – Moose, originally from 61 Harvard Park Brims, joined BL (Blood Line) when incarcerated in the Los Angeles County Jail several years ago. BL and the United Blood Nation (UBN) were prison gangs formed in California prisons during the late 1980s so that Blood members, who were grossly out numbered, could consolidate their power and protect themselves from the larger Crip gangs and other prison groups.

In recent years, some Blood members have expressed dissatisfaction with the growing number of Blood members joining a prison gang. To some, like Big Stretch from Fruit Town Brims, your loyalty is split when one signs paperwork (becoming kut) with one of the prison gangs, questioning one’s loyalty to the neighborhood when you have to answer to BL. Primarily, according to Big Stretch, when prison politics gets mixed in with the neighborhood gang politics, the combination can be disastrous and sometimes fatal.

Moose, sat down with and discussed the reasons he joined BL, and why he believes that there are many misconceptions about Bloods who do sign paper work and join a prison organization. We believe that this is the first time that a Blood has ever granted an on-camera interview to specifically talk about the prison gang.

    Bloods are and have always been disruptive groups/Street gangs…Prison Gangs in California were not formed in the 1980’s…There are six validated prison gangs…NF…NS…AB…EME…NLR…BGF…There are over 900 disrupted groups/Street gangs in the California penal system…

    • There is also for the Crips, Blue Notes, CCC and for the Bloods UBN and BL. These four prison gangs are part of the California Department of Corrections validation process, including the ones you mentioned.
