Gangbangers are so cool

But where are my people... where do the, uh... Honky Bonkers or the Anglo-Saxon Assassins hang out?

-- Toronto -- A 13-year-old boy was rushed to Hospital for Sick Children after he was stabbed in the neck in a gang attack outside the Christie TTC station last night.

Toronto Det. Reg Wright of 14 Division said the boy was among four who were stabbed in an attack launched by the Latin Kings gang, based in the Eglinton Ave.-Weston Rd. area.

The Latin Kings, a Latino street gang, frequent Christie Pits but are based in the old City of York, Wright said.
Relax, I found it... there is a gang that will take white guys.

UPDATE: Latin Kings can take pride...

In a job well done.
"It's not good, he's a quadriplegic and it's permanent, that's what I'm advised," Toronto Police Det. Reg Wright of 14 Division said yesterday, adding the teen was hanging out with some older friends and was "in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Hey homie, let's go stomp some kittens, huh?

LAST WORD:
Brits are seeing it too
A 16-year-old boy has been stabbed to death in a fight between two gangs in south-east London.

The boy was found by officers at about 2326 BST on Saturday suffering from serious injuries in a street in Southend Road, Beckenham.

I went to school just up the street from Eglinton & Weston. It was a solid working class neigbhorhood in those days. I drove by the other day, the old Kodak plant is being torn down ah well nostalgia.

In Jane - Finch today they had a youth job fair - a response to the Jordan Manners shooting - part of the festivities included a "Graffitti Wall". Cause we all know responsbilty begins with your ability to vandalize public property.

I always used to be wary of the Christie Pits in my days because back then there was a rumour of a Christie Pits Boys gang that would jack TTC riders. But I never ran into any problems there. The worst area I experienced was around the Queen/Lansdowne area and the Brockton strip from Queen to Bloor. Still, I never had any problems. I stayed away from obvious trouble areas like Jane and Finch and Cabbagetown.
