Seriously, though, it's the Latin Kings.

See this, which includes the following image:

 


with the following text:

LATIN KINGS: The gang was formed in the early 1940s in Chicago. Their symbol is the letter L, made with the thumb, which is normally stretched out, and the index finger and/or pinky.

My bad yo, I only speak LA gang signs and graffiti. Googling on the Latin Kings revealed some hand signs that are similar but not definitive. We ain't got no Latin Kings in LA, they in New Mexico?

They don't even look that tough. They look like GAP employees.

Yeah. Maybe that's what the hand signal means. "We're going to prom, yo."

I don't know if they're in Albuquirque, but they're where I live, and I see their tags quite frequently (even inside a hospital once!), usually with "Brooklyn" written under it, so their crew here is probably not independent.

Also, that's only half their sign, the "L" half. This is the "K" half:




 


Sometimes one will flash the "L" and another will flash the "K", or one will flash both simultaneously.

One thing's for sure: don't EVER flash a Latin Kings gang sign in Hartford, Connecticut; that's Los Solidos territory.

Hartford, CT? Where all the gang members have names like Muffy and Bif and wear pink polo shirts and white khakis?

In all seriousness, I'm surprised to hear about gangs still around today. They're such an '80s thang.

That could be the case. If he were a wannabe flashing a gang sign he wasn't entitled to display, that alone could have gotten him killed.

I wonder what the average life expectancy is for the gangsta? And how do most die? Obviously, a violent death, but at whose hands? Mostly at the hands of other gangstas, or the cops?

Yeh, that does make me wonder. I know everyone says tats are safe and all, but there just feels something toxic about them, to me.
