    The Bloods street gang began at the Centennial High School in Compton, California and were originally known as the Piru gang - Piru meaning Piru Street in Compton, California. The Bloods street gang has become one of the most violent and notorious street gangs active in North America today. With active chapters stretching from the southern United States border into Canada’s larger cities such as Montreal and Toronto, the Bloods continue to further expand their influence by opening new chapters. Emerging Bloods subsets form per the influence of larger Bloods gangs with organizational hubs in cities including Los Santos, New York City, and Chicago. Originally a gang with membership exclusive to African-Americans, many Bloods gang sets today recruit Asian, Caucasian, and Latino members. The Bloods were initially formed in the City of Los Santos during the 1970's to protect neighborhoods from rival gangs and anti-civil rights protests. After the introduction of crack cocaine in the 1980's however, the Bloods along with other street gangs became central drug shops and middlemen for large-quantity suppliers. Throughout this time the Bloods rivaled many other gangs including other Bloods sets for drug territory. As Latino street gangs grew in membership and power, fighting amongst African-American street gangs fell in terms of priority. Many of the 78 identified Bloods gangs in South Los Santos during the 1990's unified in several gang networks to defend against Latino gangs, some even including long-time gang rival the Crips. Despite warring against Latino gangs in South Los Santos, Bloods gang sets continued to grow while new ones emerged. By 2000 six new major Bloods gang sets had been identified, three of which were reported to be based in East Los Santos. Most prominent of these three is the Money Made Mafia Bloods set. Comprised of two subsets, the Money Made Mafia Bloods are a Piru-affiliated street gang headquartered in the 300-unit Crystal Gardens housing project lot of the South Side and is one of two Bloods gangs currently active in the South Side. The Bloods present a significant threat to correctional administrators not only due to their predatory and violent behavior but more importantly due to their intense rivalry with the Crips. As do the Crips, the Bloods have a strong fascination with assault-type weapons. California Bloods sets are typically from South-Central Los Angeles; they have similar attitudes about group loyalty and violence. Like the Crips, the Bloods love to be in the limelight. They are especially arrogant and believe that acting naive about them conveys weakness. Bloods members will seize every opportunity to lie and portray the image that they respect only those who are “bigger and worse”. Traditionally, the Bloods Street gangs have always worn red colors, using red bandana's or red rags; similar graffiti and graphics styles, expressing their disrespect and resentment for Crips and Crips symbols. Recently, a new trend appears to have arisen. Bloods in some eastern states have reportedly been known to wear brown, tan and rust or burnt orange colors to represent "Dried" blood.
