West Side gangs?

What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

West Side gangs?

Postby TimeMasterFlex » Mon Dec 20, 2010 9:08 pm

I have a child who I suspect is in a gang on the west side of Madison, yet I have no idea what gangs run in this hood.

Anyone know what gangs are around the west side?

I heard rumors of 'West sidas' and 'Los Locos'

TMF, didn't you just move here from NY after the election? And your kid is already in a gang? Doesn't make much sense...

I suspect the little-known rubber knife gang, the WestMasterFlex crew. Dems sum bad apples.

Good question. There are two main gangs on the west side, the "Sharks" and the "Jets". The Sharks are mostly Latino, Jets are working-class white kids.

The reason kids usually join gangs is because their parents are either abusive or absent. Oftentimes both.

Which are you, TMF?

My kid is adopted, which means I do not need to pay as close attention to him as compared to a biological child.

Ah, so your kid is actually the gang leader.

No, not the leader. He runs the financial aspects of the gang. Much more important than the leader. :)
