USA - Gang Sign Culture in Los Angeles

Members of the East Side Longos clique "Malditos" initiate a new member during a timed 'jump-in' fight that tests the wanna-be's nerve in a one-on-one bout against an OG/veterano member. The East Side Longos form a large Mexican-American gang rooted in the Hispanic community along Anaheim Street in Long Beach, Calif., and are main rivals with African-American and Asian gangs. The East Side Longos are the dominantly larger of the three gangs, with a number of small neighborhood "cliques" making up their membership.
