The Five Point Generalz are a small tight-knit group of individuals with origins to Toronto's west end, particularly the Weston Road area. This gang was conceived by five original members nick named the 5 Generals (hence the name), but quickly gained numbers as they recruited other local thugs into their ranks. The 5PGz (as they are referred to) are a roaming territorial street gang whose members have adopted the tradition of sporting tattoos to show their affiliation rather than the wearing of colours like other local gangs. The 5PGz first gained notoriety after one of its members was implicated in the shooting death of 11-year-old Ephriam Brown who was caught between what police describe as a gun fight between two rivals [1] (the two accused would later be acquitted of those charges [2]). The 5PGz also made headlines when one of its members was killed while attending the funeral of an associate of the gang [3], who was also cut down by gunfire on Eglinton Ave. West [4]. Although drug trafficking is their main source of income, the Five Point Generalz are more infamously known as trigger-happy stick-up artists for robbing would-be and established drug dealers alike, gaining them many enemies throughout the GTA. The 5PGz claim a stretch of Weston Road between Eglinton Ave. West north to Lawrence Ave. West in the Mount Dennis community as their turf. This includes 5 Bellevue Crescent and 1890 Weston Road (Mario's Brothers Restaurant) as well as 1946 Weston Road (The Central Bar and Grill). Members have also been known to frequent unit 2012 at 25 Martha Eaton Way, also referred to as "The Fort", putting them in direct conflict with established street gangs already inhabiting that area. Their main rivals would include the South Side Gatorz, the South Side Falstaff Crips, Trethewey Gangster Crips, Up-Top Driftwood Crips, Mount Olive Crips, the Humberline Rexdale Crips, Jungle City Goonz, Ardwick Blood Crew, Pelham Park Bloods and the VR Troopers gang. In May, 2010, Police made 71 arrests during pre-dawn raids in the GTA and Ottawa area as part of an investigation into two street gangs in northwest Toronto. "Project Corral", which began in August in response to a spike in violent crime, focused on rival gangs the Falstaff Crips and the Five Point Generalz [5]. Police seized 19 firearms, $30,000 cash, $10,500 in casino cheques, more than 10,000 ecstasy pills, cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, hashish oil, diamonds, body armour and motor vehicles. The investigation also uncovered that a third international criminal organization with roots in Jamaica, the Shower Posse, help facilitate the criminal activities of the Falstaff Crips and the Five Point Generals by supplying them with narcotics and weapons [6].
