The West Side (W/S) Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips are a long standing and infamous African American street gang based in the west side of Los Angeles, California. In 1976, the Rollin' 60's formed as a faction of the original West Side Crips gang, and have since grown. Authority believe the Rollin 60’s membership range from 6’000 to 8,000 making them the largest African American street gang in all of Los Angeles County. Members are known to sport Seattle Mariners baseball caps with the letter “S” which represent Sixty or "60’s Crip". Members are identified by tattoos as other gang members and throw up the "deuces" but with a thumb (2 fingers and a thumb). There are different theories on how the name of this gang came about since, at the time of its conception, many of the gangs were named after the streets within their respective neighborhoods. One theory was that 60th Street "rolled" through the entire neighborhood, which today extends 27 blocks south from 48th Street to 75th Street, and west from Western Avenue to Overhill Drive. Their main rival is the Eight Tray Gangster Crips to the East on Western Avenue and have been so for over thirty years [1]. At one time, the Rollin 60’s and the Eight Tray Gangster Crips were close allies and often fought rival gangs together. However, by the early 1980s, they were engaged in all out warfare. This rivalry is responsible for being the first Crip on Crip rivalry in history. This feud spilled over into surrounding neighborhoods, forcing other gangs to pledge allegiance to one of the two. Gang’s who aligned themselves with the Rollin 60’s adapted the "Neighbor Hood Crips" or Deuce(2x) card while those who aligned themselves with the Eight Tray Gangster Crips adapted the “Gangster Crips” or Tray(3x) card. Although they more commonly beef with other Crip sets, The Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips are also bitter rivals of the Van Ness Gangster Brims, a Bloods set directly north of their turf. Other gangs considered enemies of the Rollin 60s include the Inglewood Family Gang to their south, the Centinela Park Family Bloods to their west in the neighboring city of Inglewood, the Crenshaw Mafia Gang, Inglewood Neighborhood Pirus, Harvard Park Brims, Fruit Town Brims, Rollin 20s Neighborhood Bloods and the Black P Stones. Among the Crips, the Rollin 60s have waged war against the 52 Hoover Gangster Crips, 59 Hoover Criminals Gang, 83 Hoover Criminals Gang, 74 Hoover Criminals Gang), 43 Gangster Crips, the 51 Trouble Gangster Crips, Grape Street Watts Crips, all Avalon Gangster Crips, the Mansfield Gangster Crips and the School Yard Crips. The Rollin 60s are friendly towards all Neighbor Hood Crip sets such as the 67 Neighbor Hood Crips, 55 Neighbor Hood Crips and 46 Neighbor Hood Crips as well as the East Coast Crips, Osage Legend Crips, Rollin 40s Neighborhood Crips and the Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips. The 60s and all the Rollin 0's were allied during the 1980s but that is not the case today. In 2003 City Attorney filed a gang injunction against the Rollin 60s Crips and they had specified 31 men that were members of the 60s, but some have suggested that the Rollin 60s were being unfairly targeted and some mentioned that the injunction included individuals that had not had police contact in years [2].
