Dude, the "N" in COMPTON" is backwards.

If you're going to completely fu*k up your face forever, take the time to make sure you at least get the letters right.

...you did that in a mirror yourself, didn't you? Jesus you're pathetic.

How do they know they got the right guy?

It's not a crime to have gang names tattooed on your face. Hell, I could have "serial rapist" tattooed on my face but that doesn't mean I've raped more than one person. Come on, people! For all we know he's an investment banker.

Reversed N's are common in chollo grafitti. Kinda like when people type 'pwned'.

Doing this has meaning in the Mexican gangs. By doing this you have completely given up on anything else in life except for the gang and have given your life to the gang. So if the gang decides that you are going to die, go to jail or whatever, you are cool with what ever they choose. So if you see somebody with gang tattoos on their face and head get away from them because they are truly crazy. This isn't just some whim shiat a person does to fit in, the guys that do this have made a conscious decision to be nothing more in life but killers and die violently for the gang.

So they select the weak minded and mentally ill to do their dirty work. Much like organized religion.

Can't they at least wait till they get him in jailo to have an "inmate" kill him where blame can be squarely placed on the non cops.

Working for "the man" got them no where. What you see as weak minded they see as being a chump. Depends on what one values and sometimes that depends on one's environment.

Ignore the "backwards N" comments for the moment (not that they aren't valid). If any part of your brain says "Hey, total gangsta face ink, good idea" the person is very unlikely to either know or give a shiat if they spell it right, do it backwards etc.

Looks like he should have concentrated on removing that unibrow.

"affiliated with a Los Angeles-based Latino gang known as Compton Varrio 155."

He's gonna feel pretty dumb when they relocate to St. Louis next season.

This man will never have a job. Who would hire him with a face like that?

We will be paying for his upkeep for the rest of his life.

Makes me feel all warm inside.

A cultural anthropologist interested in doing some real science instead of all that postmodernist bullshiat could get a really interesting dissertation exploring gang facial tattoos using honest signaling theory.

Sketchy used tire shops off Mission or Holt in Pomona and Ontario. Or that upholstery shop with the '64 impalas and the chickens wandering through it opposite the strip club... (Mission and Mt. ave or Benson, I think). I used to get my bug worked on in the area, leaving it over night used to scare the hell out of me.

Thank you! We're heading up there to see the area in a week, and the only thing I've ever seen is the inside of the Sacramento Amtrak station... for hours.... and hours.... accursed train.... >:I

That depends, does your street name start with a number or the name of a civil rights hero that stood for peace and tolerance?

Mostly suburbia there... not that bad, but there are bad neighborhoods, I don't know it well.

For a good time, get yourself into the mountains... not necessarily the famous places or the easy to get to places, they'll be crowded, particularly when it gets hot.

Reminds me of Dwight Conquergood's study of the Latin Kings, "Life in Big Red: Struggles and Accommodations in a Chicago Polyethnic Tenement." The best ethnography you'll ever read.
