La Eme (Mexican Mafia)
HISPANIC STREET GANG & PRISON GANG
kQ4VawE.png

 


The Mexican Mafia, or also known as La Eme, is at the top of a Hispanic organized crime hierarchy that includes both prison and street gangs in Los Santos. According to most accounts, La Eme was formed in 1957 by Aantonie "Chato" Cardenal. At the time, Cardenal was incarcerated at the Bolingbroke Penitentiary (BP) in Blaine County, San Andreas. Flores and other founding member created La Eme as a both a "gang of gangs" and to protect Hispanics from other gangs within the San Andreas prison system. La eme quickly grew in size and strength. In the 1960s, the San Andreas Department of Corrections moved Eme members to other prisons such as high Desert, in an effort to break up the gang activity at Bolingbroke Penitentiary. This effort served to spread La Eme's influence to other prisons. As La Eme expanded, the group saw the potential for profiting from drug sales, gambling and extortion rackets inside prisons, so leaders placed taxes on these activities, forcing Southern Hispanic inmates to hand over a small percentage of profits to the gang. In the 1980s, La Eme took this approach to the street. By joining forces with East Los Santos street gang leaders, La Eme began to control activities like drug trafficking, extortion, contract killings, and debt collection from inside prison walls.

 Packs of Sureno inmates are seen stabbing blacks in the biggest riot in the history of Bolingbroke State Prison. It broke out on February 23, 2000, sparked by racial tensions and sanctioned by two La Eme members. Forty inmates were injured, most by stab wounds. Guards after the riot found an unprecedented eighty-nine shanks dropped on the yard. Fifteen inmates were injured by gunfire from guard towers and thirty-three-year-old Miguel “Sharky” Sanchez died in a pool of his own blood after taking a round in the head while attacking a black inmate with a mob of Sureno gang members. Surenos were ordered to keep stabbing even if guards fired live ammunition. One inmate explained, “It’s always you do, or be done.”

 


Los Santos has always been the 'crown jewel' of La Eme and it's street operations with the organization having a stranglehold on much of the city's Hispanic street gangs. This is a list which has grown to include some of the largest gangs in the entire state. Criminal operations within the city have largely been coordinated through a tight-knit core of seasoned 'Camaradas' that collects taxes and enforces its whims throughout East Los Santos. Most recently at the top of this structure was prominent gangland figure Rene 'Bosko' Blajos who's reputation for cunning and extreme brutality earned him enormous respect within the Mexican Mafia. Bosko, throughout a two year period, worked virtually unopposed to step up in the leadership and establish a vast criminal enterprise that earned millions from drug trafficking alone. This brief empire was brought to an untimely end with an enormous city-wide law enforcement operation dubbed "Open Casket" that saw La Eme's street presence evaporate overnight with a series of indictments. Law Enforcement officials speculate that with the fall of Blajos' organization a serious power vacuum has formed between the survivors as well as a newer generation that seeks their place in the limelight and who are increasingly unscrupulous with how they attain it.

Eme was not just an ordinary prison 'gang', their tentacles of influence were reaching out to nearly all of the southern (or as they are most commonly referred to - Sureno ) gangs. Most of their affiliates were stuck in between bars, and the ways of communication were very complicated, many of the La Eme mafiosos used to learn many languages, including Nahuatl - the language of the Aztecs, and various forms of improvised sign language are also used. Quotation from an external source of information - “We all study American Sign Language in Eme,” explained Boxer. “Most understand some form of sign language. There are signs for money, drugs, dead, hit, and so forth.” Sign language is used to avoid being recorded by correctional officers monitoring visits. Notes are another frequently used method of passing secret information to a visitor. The message is secreted in a body cavity to avoid detection, removed during the visit, and held up against the Plexiglas window for the visitor to read. “It’s impossible to stop,” claimed Enriquez. “In that visiting room every weekend there are crew instructions going out, hits are being ordered, money laundering is discussed, racketeering. Any crime you can imagine is being planned in that visiting room on a regular basis.” U.S. mail is essential to communication for those locked up at Pelican Bay. “We are able to correspond with anyone,” insisted Boxer, “and conduct mob business. One method is jokingly referred to as ‘Project X.’ We understand mail to Eme members is often flagged for special inspection by an institutional gang investigator. To avoid this, we write out a letter and hand it off to another inmate in our pod, let’s say a Mafia associate named Flaco Ramirez. He copies the exact letter in his own hand, signs his name, and sends it to the person I’m trying to reach out on the street. The recipient by prearrangement knows that the letter is really coming from Boxer Enriquez. The recipient answers the letter, sends it back to Flaco, and Flaco hands it back to me at Pelican Bay. The prison staff never sees it, not knowing the communication is really between me and some other mobster. The mail system is one of the best things in the world for the Mexican Mafia.”

Some of the sixty-one firearms found in a Tijuana warehouse when Mexican police finally arrested Bat Marquez on November 22, 2003. The arsenal included automatic assault rifles, shotguns, handguns, and an array of killer knives. There were bulletproof vests, police shirts and caps, and evidence of a torture room with handcuffs.

   

 

OOC:

The faction aims to maintain a high standard of roleplay which means that all recruitment is done in character. The easiest way to interact with the faction is to get involved with the street gangs of Los Santos. All members and affiliates of the factions are reserving their character killed for any serious infraction or not following the codes of conduct. Any questions or concerns can be directed to @Vindus
