  1. This thread will continue showcasing the life of Cody Miller, a fraudster running a scam group through social media. Previous thread:
  2. 101A Alta Place - Floor 1, Room 1 ALBUM (( /pinfo )) Starting bid: $350,000 Buyout: $480,000
  3. This is a shared story thread will follow the development of "The Hawick Boys" (Formerly "The Dubsta Boys"), a small group of friends from the greater Hawick area, that all find a common goal in low level crime. This story aims to represent the lower echelon of the criminal underworld, the grey area between organized crime and the bottom of the barrel. These characters are a mixed batch of degenerate youngsters from the Vespucci trenches, only together because of their common interest in crime. Now living in Hawick, eager to make money, but too lazy to get a real job, these friends run solo, and help each other out when need be. These people are motivated by their laziness, and desire to make quick cash. We don't exist to rise up the ranks of criminal hierarchy, nor is this a get rich quick, rags to riches story. This is the story of small-time criminals that slip themselves by simply because of their insignificance in the criminal underworld, they are nobodies, wannabes, degenerates, lazy. Formerly "The Dubsta Boys", Mac and David, two childhood friends were given the name in relation to the abundance of Dubsta vehicles they would steal in their co-operation with Mark Fasulo. Mac and David called themselves repo men, and quickly, their affinity for stealing cars from their owners driveways proved to be a lucrative venture for the two of them, sometimes bringing other friends in along the way. After a few solid months of work, the boys split up, they were demotivated and seeing no progress. However, after two years of being on their own, they decided to reunite, older and more experienced in hopes of greener pastures. King David David Stavola was born and raised in Vespucci, coming from a single mother household, David found solace in the people he associated with. David's mother had a well-paying job, and he and his sister were able to live comfortably, however, they lived on the rougher side of Vespucci, filled with gang violence. From Asian Boyz, to Longos, David was no stranger to the streets. As a result of their living situation, however, David was a sheltered child, he was lazy and unmotivated, and at times, all he wanted to do was hangout, and do nothing. It was through his childhood friend Mac Rispoli that David found his social circle, had it not been for Mac, David would have turned out even more of a nobody. Mac Rilla Mark Rispoli grew up with his grandparents in a small apartment block on Bay City Ave, his mother left him with her parents when his father went to jail when he was only 2 months old. Macs grandparents were already retired, so the undertaking of another child left them shorter on cash, however they were more than happy to give Mac a home. Because of their financial situation, the second Mac was able to, he had to get a job. Growing up with David, and his cousin Jonah, the trio developed an affinity for the open-air drug market in their high school. Mac was obsessed with rap icons he listened to growing up, developing his own personal style, and a rapport with the classic street style. None of the information given in this thread is to be taken IC, this is entirely for the purpose of documentation.
  4. The Los 27 criminal organization made up of inmates, at least four correctional officers and street criminals that operated from inside and outside the country's prisons and was dedicated to committing fraud and trafficking drugs was dismantled today, Thursday, with the execution of 29 arrest warrants, according to U.S. Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico W. Stephen Muldrow. The group is estimated to have generated profits in the amount of $40,000,000. This type of criminal enterprise was created on June 27, 1980, called in its beginnings by the ÑETA group as Los Insectos, which originally belonged to the group of the Manuel A. Pérez residential complex in Hato Rey, whose founding member was identified as Luis Pinela Pizarro, alias Shino Pinela and El Viejo. These criminals, who committed these crimes through various schemes by deceiving citizens from the prisons, was their main source of income, along with the trafficking of controlled substances, they extended their tentacles of power to Liberty City, Las Venturas, Miami Beach and Los Santos. Hundreds of inmates used cell phones smuggled into the prisons to obtain money from people outside the prisons through threats. These notorious scams were set up when they called to solicit money to free a kidnapped family member who allegedly witnessed a drug transaction and notified the police, who confiscated the shipment. They also used the ruse that they were federal agents investigating a motor vehicle fraud scheme and convinced the victims that in order to catch the suspects, they had to make a substantial deposit of money to make the arrests. Four officers of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (DCR) who worked in the correctional complexes of Ponce and Bayamón were arrested because they acted as facilitators of this gang. "According to the indictment, the Los 27 group was an enterprise that was dedicated to criminal activities inside and outside the prison system of the Puerto Rico departments and within the Federal Bureau of Prisons...their main objective was to have control of the prisons to make money," Muldrow said. Among those charged are 14 leaders, two suppliers, 11 facilitators, including the four correctional officers alleged to have participated in smuggling drugs into the prisons and moving the company's money. DCR Secretary Ana Escobar warned that they will continue to "clean house" of those who keep committing crimes. "We are not only talking about four, there could probably be more and it could probably be another type of crime and another type of criminal activity. The important thing is that today we have already worked with ten arrests of correctional officers who unfortunately since I have been in this position have been arrested for violating state and federal laws," said the official. The gang trafficked in state and federal prisons, including cocaine, heroin, marijuana, synthetic cannabis, controlled drugs and methamphetamines and fentanyl. Violence, including assaults, electrocution and murder, was used to maintain the discipline of the criminal enterprise. The indictment mentions the murder of Alexis Santiago Montañez, known as Chanfle, by strangulation, on July 26, 2010, who was killed in the maximum security institution of the correctional complex in Ponce, who had recently been transferred from the Bayamon prison. The crime was ordered by one of the leaders of Los 27. For his part, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Joseph González, revealed that the organization has more than 3,000 members nationwide, with headquarters in Puerto Rico and Los Santos, Hawick. "The sad part of this is that while in jail these people would not have been able to continue their life of crime without the help of correctional officers who instead of maintaining law and order failed the people and their oath. I want to make it clear that these officers do not represent the majority of law enforcement officers who risk their lives and give their all day in and day out in service to the community," Gonzalez argued.

  6. This thread documents the development and background of Seamus Cook, a member of the defunct Satanic Skins set. [Seamus Cook pictured with childhood friend Francis Kilgore.] ᛒᚨᛋᛖᛞ - ⚡eamus Cook From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - "White power skinheads, also racist skinheads or neo-Nazi skinheads, are members of a neo-nazi, white supremacist and antisemitic offshoot of the skinhead subculture. Many of them are affiliated with white nationalist organizations and some of them are members of prison gangs." Seamus Cook was born on the Beach during 1985, July ninth. During the early 2000s Seamus was introduced to white pride at a young age by his family and friends, especially long time friend and former classmate, Francis Kilgore. Seamus Cook is a twenty nine year old heroin addict with racist tendencies and hateful rhetoric. His early life remains shrouded in speculation but the generalized jist is that his father was a hardcore punk rock fan, and skinhead. His father was apart of the American Front located in San Francisco as one of the earlier members in the recently formed organization. With his ties to the music scene and devotion to a Pro-White race movement forged the continuation of his fathers success as a neo-nazi. As a member of the American Front, he met many different kinds of white supremacists, but the ones he identified with the most was the wave of neo-nazi skinhead subculture drifting over from the United Kingdom, their music, beliefs, and hate only fueled Cook's father, and he eventually joined PEN1 in 1986, just a year after becoming an official member of the [AF]. After officially moving into his friends home, Cook's father drifted on the west-side of Vespucci, kicking it on the rock scene with his comrades, his brothers. He was eventually incarcerated for life in prison after a stabbing turned double homicide, his victims a lesbian couple that tried to fight back, but ended up getting stomped by five or so skinheads before Cook's father took out a knife and began stabbing them. This happened after a punk rock concert where Cook's father tried meth. This was the first and last time his father did meth. "Expert" in skinhead culture and author of "Public Enemy Number One" - "MS" "During the late 1980s, various members of the gang were facing charges and getting arrested for various crimes, to include: drug charges, burglary, and robbery. Once incarcerated, PENI members began creating a relationship with the Aryan Brotherhood." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - "American Front (AF) is a white supremacist organization founded in San Francisco, California by Bob Heick in 1984. It began as a loose organization modeled after the British National Front. Heick began working with Tom Metzger's White Aryan Resistance (WAR) in 1988. Heick and artist Boyd Rice posed for photos in AF uniforms for an article on neo-Nazism in Sassy magazine. Rice claims he was never really a member of the American Front, but that he was friends with Heick.[2]" The path of the enlightened isn't always right, especially if you're taught the wrong things and believe them to right. Cook attended Vespucci High, his childhood lacking a father and strong parental guidance. He was a latch-key kid, his mother was always out working, which gave him a lot of free time after school. He attended rock concerts, which are still incredibly popular in Vespucci, the Beach and the surrounding areas have remained a staple of skate culture, punk rock, disobeying authority and hating minorities. Francis Kilgore and Seamus Cook grew up alongside each other, and in a sense, have a deep rooted loyalty to one another, but they're not united over just friendship, but pride. White pride. Cook joined PEN1 officially in the 2000s, eventually reaching the status of a full fledged member after proving he could provide for his race. Cook took this opportunity to push dope on a larger scale, using the gangs ties and contacts to further his means of success, which were working at an alarmingly well rate. He made over twenty grand pushing pot, pills, and cocaine out of an abandoned house he used as his F.O.B and central home. He left home and dropped out of school, spending most his time around the gang. After rising to comrade, he was eventually moved to a new clique in the Hawick, those being the Satanic Skins, a white set of skinheads from the Burton and Hawick areas of Los Santos. He ran alongside the Satanic Skins, and is one of the only few members currently around to this day. The Satanic Skins dissolved somewhere between 2019 and the early months of 2020, leaving Cook to his lonesome. He spent a few months in isolation before slinking back out to the streets, clicking up with his old friend Kilgore, who since became a member of a motorcycle club and was a well respected and well guarded man. Francis Kilgore was a friend of Cook's, and they partook in many of the same past times, the largest of which was drug distribution and usage. Cook got hooked on heroin at age twenty eight, and has been fighting an uphill battle ever since. Heroin controls his life, and without a dose every now and again he goes through serious withdrawals, usually leaving him in one of the most painful states someone can be in, a craving for something used as a crutch. After becoming a heroin addict, Cook lost mostly everything, including his car, house, and job. He lives in his car and is trying to improve his life to better standards, while bringing the quality of life to those around him down. Not too long after that he was introduced to meth, and ever since that's his drug of choice, alongside heroin as his second-best. "Expert" in skinhead culture and author of "Public Enemy Number One" - "MS" "While traditional skinheads have often held an anti-drug stance, PENI is completely opposite. Members have been known to use methamphetamine and heroin." Anti Defamation League's statement regarding the gang and drug usage - "Heavily involved in the drug trade, PENI members have a strong history of violence, both in the prisons and on the streets. In addition to drug-related criminal activity, PENI members have committed a number of violent crimes, including assault, murder and attempted murder." The month is November, and Cook has come out of a drug stupor to start operations back up alongside Kilgore. He sets out with one goal in mind, to get money. Heroin and meth isn't going to buy itself.
  7. THREAD WILL FOLLOW A GROUP OF IRISH-AMERICAN & OTHER ETHNIC CRIMINALS AS WE DEVELOP FROM A LOOSELY STRINGED CREW, INTO A ORGANIZED CRIME GROUP UNDER THE CARDONA NETWORK. The Irish in San Andreas in 2005, when it became clear that the Ronald Reagan Pub in Ballyporeen, Tipperary was no longer a viable novelty to locals or tourists, Irish-American businessman and Republican booster Frederick Ryan Jr. facilitated the bar’s relocation to Simi Valley, San Andreas, also the site of Reagan’s presidential library. This anecdote is humorous and poignant, and – for Irish critics of Reagan – maybe even a bit satisfying. But it also captures several central themes concerning the Irish experience in San Andreas. President Reagan’s great-grandfather Michael was born in Ballyporeen, and moved to London around the time of the Famine. The Reagans – like so many Irish San Andreans – lived elsewhere in the U.S. before settling in San Andreas. Reagan’s father, John, was a practicing Catholic, who converted after marrying a Protestant. The Rise to Prominence It was just before and during the early years of John Reagan’s life – the 1860s, 1870s and 1880s – that the Irish rose to prominence in San Andreas. During this era, benevolent and fraternal groups such as the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Hibernian Society, and the Sons of the Emerald Isle were formed. Over a decade before New York or Boston elected an Irish mayor, San Fierro elected Frank McCoppin, born in Longford, in 1867. But McCoppin’s election as mayor of San Andreas’s largest city was just the latest in a string of electoral wins for Irish candidates. Seven years earlier, Roscommon native John G. Downey became the state’s governor. Galway native John Conness was elected a U.S. Senator in 1862 while Westmeath native Eugene Casserly won election to the same body in 1868. Also during the 1860s, two Irishmen who would have a huge impact on the state’s future politics arrived: Boss Chris Buckley came to the region at the age of 17 with his immigrant parents in 1862, while perennial reformer James D. Phelan (also the son of immigrants) was born in San Fierro in 1861. Ronald Reagan’s father, of course, would not achieve quite the same level of fame. But his son, born in 1911, joined a trail of Irish-American talent that flowed into Vinewood. Reagan’s second career, as a politician, saw him become the world’s most powerful leader. Ballyporeen, perhaps, could not sustain the Reagan Pub, but San Andreas certainly could. The Most Irish Americans Because it is home to the All-American dream factory – Vinewood – as well as the sprawling polyglot metropolis of Los Santos, San Andreas is rarely mentioned as an Irish state on par with the likes of New York or Massachusetts. But according to the 1990 census, San Andreas actually had the largest number of Irish-Americans, with nearly two million residents identifying themselves as Irish. Movies such as True Confessions (based on John Gregory Dunne’s novel) and L.S. Confidential have touched upon Irish-American characters navigating the underbelly of San Andreas urban life in the 1940s and 1950s. But the vast Irish contribution to San Andreas stretches back to the days of Spanish colonization and the Gold Rush of 1849. By the early 20th century, Jimmy Cagney, John Wayne and Grace Kelly were members of Vinewood’s Irish royalty, while politicians such as Ronald Reagan and Los Santos mayor Richard Riordan epitomized the endurance of Irish-American political influence. To this day, new Irish traditions continue to thrive, with schools such as the New College of San Andreas, San Fierro, establishing an Irish Studies program. (How the Irish Invented Slang author Daniel Cassidy is one of the directors.) The Spanish Irish Two of the most important Irishmen in early San Andreas history are Count de Lacy and Hugo Oconor (spellings of his name vary). De Lacy came from a “distinguished Norman-Irish family of aristocratic stature, long prominent in stirring events in Irish history,” Thomas F. Prendergast writes in Forgotten Pioneers: Irish Leaders in Early San Andreas. De Lacy was one of the so-called Wild Geese, exiled Irish military men who served in the armies of Spain and other nations across Europe and the Americas. De Lacy never set foot in the U.S., but while stationed in St. Petersburg in the 1760s he did warn his Spanish superiors that the Russians might be looking to settle the westernmost lands of what would become the United States. The Spanish set out to settle the region first, led by “Captain Colorado,” as Hugh O’Conor (that is, Hugo Oconor) was known. General Alexander (or Alejandro) O’Reilly also took part in the expedition. All three of these Irish Spaniards battled the Native Americans up and down the West Coast and laid the foundation for European settlement of the state. By the 1820s, John O’Donoghue, an Irishman, was instrumental in implementing the treaty under which Spain recognized Mexico’s sovereignty, while Wexford native Timothy Murphy was made a regional administrator while living on a ranch of well over 20,000 acres. The Donner Party One of the most famous episodes in the history of the Western frontier involved several Irish families and occurred in 1846. Patrick Breen was among those trekking to San Andreas as part of the Donner Party. In his diary on November 20, the Irish immigrant wrote: “We went out to the pass, the snow was so deep we were unable to find the road, then turned back to the shanty on the lake. We now have killed most of our cattle, having to stay here until next spring. It snowed during the space of eight days with little intermission.’’ In the end, half of the Donner Party’s 100 or so travelers died. It could be said that this dark episode marked the end of one era in San Andreas, before the start of what would literally be a Golden Age. Gold! The Gold Rush – just before San Andreas became a state in 1850 – swelled the region’s population, and the Irish seem to have been particularly attracted. One estimate suggests that gold camps were consistently 10 to 20 percent Irish, while nearly one in four miners at the Grass Valley camp were Irish-born. Sam Brannan (the son of Irish immigrants from Maine) is believed to be the first person to become a millionaire in the wake of the Gold Rush. By the mid-1850s, Brannan owned about 20 percent of the land in San Fierro. Even those Irish who made a more modest fortune were able to flex their newfound muscle, electing the aforementioned politicians to public office in the 1860s. The roots of San Fierro’s Irish and Democratic machine were being formed. San Fierro & Los Santos As early as the 1860s, San Fierro clearly had a strong Irish Catholic presence. The city’s St. Patrick’s Day parade started in the early 1850s. Within two decades, 6,000 people marched in the two mile procession, which is said to have drawn over 50,000 spectators. There was sporadic anti-Irish and anti-Catholic organizing, but just as often the Irish were taking advantage of discriminatory sentiments, as when they were among those who fought to keep Chinese laborers out of San Andreas. By contrast, Los Santos had a more consistently Anglo-Protestant tradition. One 1830s survey lists a single Irish-born resident in the city. Even by 1900, while almost 70 percent of San Fierro’s churchgoers were Catholic, Protestants significantly outnumbered Catholics in L.S. Still, Irishmen played key roles in the creation of modern-day Los Santos. Edward Doheny (born to immigrant parents in Wisconsin) went west looking for gold but instead found oil, becoming one of the region’s wealthiest oil tycoons. Daniel Day-Lewis is playing a character based on Doheny in the movie , currently on release, There Will Be Blood. Perhaps even more important to L.S.’s evolution as a city was Belfast-born William Mulholland. Once a lowly worker for the city’s water company, he rose up the ranks to become L.S. Chief City Engineer. It was Mulholland who developed the Los Santos Aqueduct, delivering water to this thirsty city. Later, John Joseph Cantwell, the Limerick-born bishop of L.S., welcomed Hispanic immigrants with open arms during the first half of the 20th century. Vinewood Of course, San Andreas’s most famous industry is the motion picture business. From Hal Roach of Our Gang fame to Joseph P. Kennedy (an executive at RKO), Irish-Americans played a key role during Vinewood’s earliest days. The roster of Irish-Americans who relocated to Vinewood ranges from John Ford and Spencer Tracy in the early days to Roma Downey and Ed Burns today. As is often the case, however, under the glitzy surface there are darker problems. These days, San Andreas’s Irish Catholics struggle with issues related to immigration and abuse. Cardinal Roger Mahony was the public face of the Los Santos Archdiocese when it settled a multi-million-dollar sex abuse lawsuit. Finally, a debate regarding the clash of Irish and Hispanic Catholicism in San Andreas has erupted. Last year, the New York Times Magazine published a cover story by David Rieff entitled “Nuevo Catholics: The Hispanicization of American Catholicism.” The “last four decades have been such a catastrophe for American Catholicism,” Rieff notes grimly, reciting a litany of by now familiar statistics about how few American Catholics enter the priesthood or care for their religion deeply. Rieff notes, however, that America’s swelling Hispanic population (centered in Los Santos, where Rieff did all of his reporting) may breathe new life into the American Church, thus transforming it from an Irish institution to a Hispanic one. But famed Irish-American priest and sociologist Andrew Greeley believes the San Andreas Irish deserve credit for helping the Church make a transition into the 21st century. Indeed, whether you agree more with Greeley or Rieff, one thing all of this makes clear is just how Irish the current Church remains. Rieff talks at length with an L.S. parish priest named Jarlath Cunnane, a Sligo native. Rieff also talks to priests named O’Connell, Boyle and Carroll. You could make the case that the U.S. Catholic Church is so thoroughly Irish that it will remain “Irish” even when those O’Connells and Boyles are replaced by Guzmans and Lopezes. This makes perfect sense. After all, it was the Irish and Spanish who created San Andreas as we know it. The Future Technology has created a new Gold Rush of sorts in San Andreas. Late last year, Irish trade minister Michael Martin visited Palo Alto to meet with founding members of the Irish Technology Leadership Group. Made up of Silicon Valley Irish executives, the group, established by Palm Inc. Senior Vice President John Hartnett, includes current and former executives from Sling Media, Intuit, Apple, Intel, Cisco and Hewlett-Packard, and aims to help Ireland take advantage of fledgling technological opportunities. The McKenna Gang The McKenna Gang a/k/a The Wild Wicks is a predominant Irish-American organized crime crew primarily based out of the Uptown area of Los Santos, mainly consisting of the neighborhoods Vinewood, Hawick and Alta. The McKenna's originally came to fruition in the Hawick neighborhood of Los Santos, but grew to have influence all throughout the Uptown area of Northern Los Santos. The crew was formed by Eileen McKenna a/k/a Lips and Donovan McGuire a/k/a Del Boy in their teenagehood days, and often associated with members of the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia's Hawick chapter and Northern District's Hawick chapter for sometime way back. By the late-2010s the McKenna Gang was one of the main criminal groups around Northern Los Santos that held strong presence, although not a majorly big group, they held their ground somewhat and were one of the most tight-knit Irish criminal groups on the West Coast as a whole. The Irish in San Andreas didn't have a major hub like in New York or Massachusetts, but Hawick was one place most Irish-American families settled in, which made it to perfect breeding ground for an Irish-American crew. The McKenna Gang is suspected to have their hands dug into countless business fronts around the Hawick, Alta and Vinewood areas of Northern Los Santos. The criminal activities that the McKenna Gang partakes in can range from: Auto theft, bank fraud, bid rigging, bookmaking, building violations, calling card fraud, cement violations, construction violations, credit card fraud, drug trafficking, firearm trafficking, kidnapping, extortion, identity theft, illegal gambling, labor racketeering, loan sharking, mail fraud, money laundering, mortgage fraud, murder, pornography, pier and port theft, racketeering, securities fraud, truck hijacking, waste management ,street tax wire fraud, witness tampering. Although drug trafficking, firearm trafficking, auto theft and street tax wire fraud tend to be the four most suspected criminal activities they're involved in as it's what most busts they get arrested are for. The group is suspected to be ran by Eileen McKenna a/k/a Lips and Donovan McGuire a/k/a Del Boy, whom reportedly operate the crew out of the areas listed above. McKenna's also the daughter of a Family Affiliated Irish Mafia affiliate who's currently serving life in High Desert State Prison after drug trafficking charges were thrown onto him during sentencing, her father being; Michael McKenna a/k/a Vinewood Mike. It has been confirmed though that the McKenna Gang are not under the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia, and are a decentralized Irish-American Organized Crime Group that use Hawick, Alta and Vinewood as their recruiting grounds for potential new members. The group however, has managed to maintain a strong presence over the Hawick neighborhood specifically, most likely due to influence from within as most residents in the Hawick area are of Irish descent which has made it easier for the McKenna Gang to win approval over from the locals. Authorities such as the Los Santos Police Department and Los Santos Sheriff's Department have tried speaking to locals when crimes were committed in the local area, but to no avail had anything came through; with them refusing to speak to the authorities. Many of the residents in the neighborhood are suspected to instead goto one of the associates under the McKenna wing for help if they need something, which plays into Ireland's olden traditions of the cód onóra (English: Code of Honor) motto. Although the McKennas are a group of predominately Irish-American criminals, several African-American, Mexican and non-Irish Caucasian-Americans have been considered associates of the criminal group. Although it is said that you must be able to trace your roots back to Ireland to be brought into the inner circle and have ancestry tracing back to Ireland, the group doesn't limit non-Irish ethnic criminals from affiliating with themselves as associates on an outsider point of view. The group of organized criminals are consistent of gangsters and mobsters alike, but mostly gangsters who get down and dirty when need being. This is one of the things that made the McKenna Gang rather feared by some in certain parts of the city, but in other parts they're respected tremendously; I.E Vinewood, Hawick and Alta. The McKenna Gang is rumored to have ties to the Armenian Power criminal organization, Aryan Brotherhood when it comes to prison related affairs and the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia and are rumored to supposedly have a connection to a large criminal network that operates in Los Santos. The name for it is unknown. HAWICK, VINEWOOD A/K/A THE WICK A/K/A IRISHTOWN Hawick is primarily a shopping district located in Los Santos, San Andreas, United States of America. There are several stores located in Hawick, including Ammu-Nation, Hawaiian Snow, and Suburban, and also includes an almost five decade old Mexican restaurant; Taco Libre. There is one main road that passes through Hawick's central grid which contains most of the businesses that are located within the neighborhood, Hawick Avenue and Alta Place. Despite Hawick's relatively close proximity to the infamous Rockford Hills, it unfortunately does not feature that many luxury businesses unlike some might actually suspect; instead the district is full of middle-class Irish-American families that settled in the neighborhood around the early 1950s to late 1970s. Hawick itself most likely serves as a commercial district for the likes of East Vinewood and Mirror Park to the east, as many residents from East Vinewood and Mirror Park tend to visit Hawick for their shopping. Hawick is also a contested neighborhood too, many people from Hawick claim it's Vinewood when in reality it's actually not. But that is besides the point, as many people from Hawick always claim they're from Vinewood as well. This may be because of the fact Vinewood is just under one mile away from the neighborhood, and one mile west is Burton. Hawick has many different different cultures engrained into it from Irish-Americans, Polish-Americans, Greek-Americans and Armenian-Americans, but quite a lot of the population; more than 47% rated per the 2019 ratio, are of Irish descent. Hawick has also been a hub for many criminal groups in the area such as the: Family Affiliated Irish Mafia (FAIM), Armenian Power (AP), McKenna Organized Crime Gang (MKOCG), Northern District Organized Crime Gang (NDOCG) and Los Santos Death Squad (LSSD); a mini-sub set of the Public Enemy Number One organization. Hawick's population has been counted at 5,423 as of the 2021 annual census ratio per the Los Santos district population chart. Around 40% to 50% of the local residents are of Irish descent, whilst the others are of Polish, Greek and Armenian descent with a bit of Italian descent there too. Hawick has been rated as one of the locations on the Los Santos Tour Guide for tourists to visit, due to the history of the neighborhood and the shops on the main avenue. THE WILD WICKS BECOME THE IRISH MAFIA FAMILY Although as the years went on, the Wild Wicks otherwise known as the McKenna Gang would gain a strong grip and presence over Hawick to the point they offered protection to local businesses and startup gangs around the neighborhood. The McKennas began to form themselves an identity that was meant to live on for decades to come, the identity? The Irish Mafia Family (I.M.F), the name? It came from the fact that they were primarily of Irish descent, operated like a Mafia but were all a Family in the end. This would've marked I.M.F being the second Irish group in Los Santos to fully establish ppresence over a neighborhood, just like their predecessors; the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia (F.A.I.M) who also claimed and ran Hawick with an iron fist for many many years. Although it was the same neighborhood that the Family Affiliated Irish Mafia dominated, the group still became acknowledged by local authorities and the Los Santos Police Department's Gangs & Narcotics division within the Hawick neighborhood. The Irish Mafia Family (I.M.F)'s current membership count and internal hierarchal structure is still unknown, the "McKenna Gang" as we knew it appears to be no more and the "Irish Mafia Family" seems to have taken over and dominated the scene. It's questionable if the McKennas as an entire entity actually did directly become the Irish Mafia Family, but it is what is assumed right now anyways by the media and authorities. The Irish Mafia Family in simple terms has been spotted all over Hawick, Vinewood and Downtown Vinewood, Vinewood. It's pretty evident and clear that the group's main influential area tends to be Vinewood, in the Northside of Los Santos. This has led the authorities to actually mistaking them as the Northern District, although they aren't directly Northern District, the authorities have mistaken them for it due to their area of operandi. There has been a few affiliates from the Irish Mafia Family that have been spotted with tattoos relating to their group in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility, in both the male and female wings. The tattoo: "cód onóra" on the right side of the neck, alongside tattoos such as "Irish Mafia Family", "I.M.F", "Shamrocks tatted with I.M.F", "Roses tatted with I.M.F" and "Harps tatted with I.M.F" have all been photographed on several Irish-American inmates in the Twin Towers. Thread is used to showcase the roleplay of a predominate Irish-American group under the CARDONA connection.
  8. "Where poverty prevails, crime is nothing more than a job opportunity." With the long-standing problem in Latin American countries, there have always been endless waves of immigrants to the US. Not a novelty and a fairly common lifestyle nowadays, a simple guy raised in a very classic Colombian cultural style has worked his way out of his country and gone in search of opportunities in the promised paradise of LS, where for endless years organized crime has prevailed in the darkness of the shadows representing a myriad of ethnic and cultural ways. Today, the local gossip frequents names and surnames in particular, depending too much but you hear both bad and good things referring mostly to how a small group of Colombian neighbors settled in Spanish Av have been causing a stir in the surrounding area, either by their loud music all day and night, their constant problems such as fights, and more acts that results in activity the whole day and night. Among all those rumors there is always a surname that will lead and that is Garces, a man who naturally as a leader and without knowing absolutely nothing has begun to plant its bases in this small neighborhood, linking in an assertive way with the surrounding neighbors. Because of Garces' representative mentality, it was inevitable that as soon as he arrived on the streets of LS, he began to search his way through both the streets and everything legal that could accept a person like him. Demonstrating wherever he went to be a person very rooted to his beliefs and culture, following strict codes of respect for work, punctuality, decency and respect for everyone, which he preserves even in the most turbulent and adrenaline moments, where he differs from other criminals of his ilk.
  9. SPANISH AVE HAT GANG The Northwest Spanish Ave Hat Gang, also known as the Sunnyside Brims are a gang located in the greater Hawick area, more particularly West Vinewood. They are primarily but not exclusively African-American street gangs. Located in uptown LS in their neighborhood of West Vinewood. The heart of the SAHG is the Sunnyside Apartment Complex in West Vinewood. In 2021, The Spanish Ave Hat Gang made headlines after being linked to a murder of an male named "Gabriel Garcia", Garcia was shot 6 times while walking back to his apartment in Hawick. Garcia was gunned down by Rodney “Lil Lay” Stone. The murder was caught on a nearby CCTV camera with Rodney being caught on cameras on his escape all the way back to the Sunnyside Apartment Complex. Its believed that the murder was gang motivated with Garcia being a suspected member of a rival gang. The Sunnyside Brims aren’t as active as they used to be, due to a recent gang injunction taking down most of their members. The Sunnyside Brims, like other Brim sets in Southern Los Santos, have many rivals. These include all Crip sets in Hawick and around the entire city and all Hoover Criminals. However due to the fluidity of Hawick politics, these relations aren't set in stone. Present Day Hawick Drill Scene Greater Hawick hasn’t been a gang hot-bed since the later 1990’s, with several small sets spread throughout its neighborhoods like the Graveyard Insane Avenue Crips, Spanish Ave Hat Gang, Whittset Neighborhood Crips, 35 Laguna Street Gangster Crips and the now largely defunct Vinewood Locotes 13 along with others. Hawick has always set itself apart from the rest of Los Santos, gang politics wise and especially music wise. The Hawick Drill scene recently began blowing up in 2022 with the GIAC rappers "DOA,GEN5 AND 2100WICC" coming out with the song “GY ANTHEM”. This launched the Hawick drill scene into the spotlight with it racking up many views since its release. The grimy, East Coast influenced sound of Hawick’s drill scene is what sets it apart from the rest of Los Santos being an example of just how culturally different the Northside of the city is from the rest. Drill music and gang violence have always been tied together in Hawick, both constantly creating each other. (GIAC rappers; DOA,GEN5 and 2100WICC taken from their recent track "DIE O") Hat Gang Today The Sunnyside Brims are more reckless, and tend to bring themselves more attention than they should. The rivalries they have are still hot, shooting from both sides still occur often. The Sunnyside Brims are known for two things, drug trafficking and being overtly hostile and active in dissing their rivals online, more recently GIAC due to their rising popularity through their drill music. SAHG members tend to move recklessly, this being the cause behind a number of investigations and indictments to the gang. The Law Enforcement are still on the Sunnyside Brims heavy, they still haven’t stopped their drug and gun trafficking. Their drug and gun ties go as far as cities like Atlanta and Portland. The Spanish Ave Hat gang members focus on recruiting younger members. Most members of the Hat Gang are known by the police through arrest and are between the ages of 13 and 20. The majority of members have deep family ties or friendships within existing gang members. The Brims haven’t calmed down throughout the last few months with more and more of their rivals blowing up off of drill music. Most of the older gang members have been taken down by the Gang and Narcotics division of Los Santos. Leaving the Brims with a few older and mostly young members, the Sunnyside Apartments have turned into a crime infested place, with several shootings, robbing's, attempted murders, murders and a known drug dealing spot shared through social media, and mouth-to-mouth.

  12. The Hawick Satanic Skins [Also known as HSS or Satanic Skins] are a group of white power skinheads in the Hawick area of Los Santos. The Hawick Satanic Skins get their “Satanic Skin” moniker from the founder's supposed links to Satanism and his strange relationship with the occult, some speculating that he was a member of a cult. Satanic Skins [⚡⚡] were founded during the 1980s by REDACTED while right wing ideals and nazism grew rampant throughout the states with punk rock and anti-communist sentiment. Founded by a small group of punk rock enthusiasts, the group originally stuck together during thrash pits to fight off anyone trying to jump one of their own, but by the mid 1990s they transitioned from a punk rock group to a organized gang of white supremacist skinheads, evolving alongside the era and the musics progression over the decade. Somewhere between 1987 to 1989 a few members of the Satanic Skins managed to make a small local impact in Vespucci’s music scene and promoted their values to the youth, which raised recruitment to an unprecedented level. After the 1990s struck, more and more of the gang participated in the sale and usage of drugs, primarily cocaine or heroin. Among the Satanic Skins in Vespucci were plenty of other white sets, and The drug markets rampant growth around the United States gave many allying sets reason to start conflict, the biggest competitor of theirs, the Conquistador Skinheads [Saddle Skins or C-S]. The Conquistador Skinheads had an on-going rivalry with the Satanic Skins over a stabbing that took place on June Fourth, 1996, between a C-S skin and a S-S skin. Both parties claimed they owned a supposed part of the beach, and the S-S skin proceeded to start a fight, shoving the C-S skin. After a short brawl, the S-S skin was shivved three times, surviving from his injuries. The C-S competed fiercely against the S-S in the drug trade, and any chance to destroy, dilute or cripple the S-S was met with a swift reaction from the C-S. During the chilly month of November, 1999, was closing on a deadline, that being the start of the 2000s, and while the month slowly crawled to the next year, it seemed that the Satanic Skins had lost a major amount of territory after a massive brawl that saw them lose the lives of six members, one of which was a pregnant girlfriend of a skinhead, giving the entirety of skinhead culture a very bad look. The Satanic Skins that remained fled from Vespucci after the rivaling skin sets closed in on them from all sides, a majority of these members sticking together out of companionship, drug addiction, homelessness, or friendship, many of them hanging out in the low-income motels of the Hawick area, a perfect place for an addict to get a fix from the drug dealers sitting outside of clubs or pill pushers on the sidewalk. They adopted the Hawick part of their name during this transition, and saw a member resurgence in 2001, after 9/11, which saw many conflicts break out between the multi-ethnics communities scattered through East Los Santos, causing many whites to join simply out of fear of being attacked, life sparking back into the once dying group. The Hawick Satanic Skins grew, and with it, their crimes grew violent and usually gorey, which was done purposefully to scare the usually larger groups of neighboring races with their own gangs. The HSS began becoming known as dangerous white supremacists who participated in organized crime and random acts of violence against those of another race, however, as the years progressed on, the Satanic Skins lost members once again, leaving the newer Hawick Satanic Skins spread thin among their once strong borders in Hawick. As the Hawick Satanic Skins continued to fizzle, they united under PEN1 and assimilated into a clique for the gang, working alongside and under them with many other white sets in the late 2010s. As the years continued to progress, the white power scene began to grow again, with groups like PEN1 controlling the continual growth through their connections in music and the skate and surf industry. The Satanic Skins under PEN1 prospered, but with the disappearance of Kyle “Lucky” Brock from the white power scene, and many other high profile skinheads sudden dissapearances has left PEN1 in ruin, many of the cliques splintering off or dissolving entirely. While PEN1 still remains formidable, the Satanic Skins once again began to suffer, their leader, Edgar “Cyclops” or “Clops” Boon’s leave of absence diminished their numbers and they faded away into obscurity. Until Seamus Cook decided to get out of his drug stupor, that is. Seamus Cook, a Hawick Satanic Skin, came back into the white power scene as of recently, working alongside other members of the ongoing cause, which brought more recruits to the movement as white power music fades back into popularity with white youth from Vespucci. With his ties in Vespucci and his home in Hawick, he’s able to recruit white supremacists throughout the vine he’s connected in, sparking life into the Satanic Skins for a third time. The newly revived Satanic Skins are made up of old and new skinheads alike, and they aim to revive their name and clan. OOC NOTE: This faction intends to realistically portray the white power skinheads. While the group and their ideals are racist in nature, this faction does not promote or endorse racism, and members should keep this in mind when out of character. We value portrayal highly in the faction, and put it as our first priority. We aim to achieve a realistic white power skinhead gang, not a run of the mill street gang. There're many organized pieces in this seemingly loosely associated group of racists. Members of this faction are expected to obey and abide by the rules stated in the GTA:W rule section For any questions, comments, or concerns, please PM @Vincent
