I’ve been using Gangs OR us as a reference point for some of the characters in my stories, to help with language usage and lifestyle.
The site is fairly good; I found it through several of the crime & police sites I’d monitored when I worked for The Credit Card Company That Shall Be Nameless.
However, my respect for it just got blown.
Down the page is a link for “Gang Initials”…to help you figure out gang graffiti sign.
But the link…
…is for a list of player groups in an online role-playing game based in the Old West (similar to the guilds in Warcraft and other fantasy games).
FAIL FAIL FAIL.
I mean, a simple glance-thru of that list would’ve told him it had nothing to do with real street gangs.
Or does Mr. Walker think that there’s really a street gang out there called “Knights Who Say Ni”?
edit: Mr. Walker evidently got a bit upset that I posted this, and removed the link totally. lol
