New blood: Violent gang life is passed down from parent to child
BY VERONIKA BELENKAYA
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Sunday, June 15th 2008, 2:13 AM


The images as chilling as they are heartbreaking: An infant with a semiautomatic handgun next to each tiny shoulder. A child no more than a year old decked out in blood-red gang gear.

"They call them Blood drops, stains, rims," a former Staten Island Bloods gang member said of the nicknames gang parents give their children.

Incredibly, parents "bless" and initiate their babies into violent gangs like the Crips and Bloods - teaching chubby little fingers to fold into gang signs even before the tots mouth their first words.

A longtime member of the Lating Kings, here with his 4-year-old, says he wants to be a peacemaker and hopes his son follows suit.

Drive-by shootouts, murder and drug deals have always been a sad part of gang life, but recruitment from one generation to the next has become more prominent in the city where gangs only started showing their might in the mid-1990s.

"We're seeing more children who are being exposed to the gang world because their parents are members," said Deanna Rodriguez, Brooklyn district attorney gang bureau chief.

"This is part of their identity," Rodriguez said. "As long as they can remember, they've been part of the Bloods, Crips or the Latin Kings. This is what life is and they don't understand the concept of what life is outside that."

NYPD statistics bear out the sad truth: There were 713 gang incidents in New York last year, up from 554 in 2006.

While city officials estimate there are about 17,000 known gang members here, experts say the actual number is double that - not even including small neighborhood gangs.

The nation's three biggest gang cities are Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, said Arlen Egley of the National Youth Gang Organization.

Some of the misguided parents think teaching little ones the gang life is cute. Others have learned the hard way.

"My first child - he was only 6 months old when he got blessed into it," said King Ironman, a Bronx member of the Almighty Latin King and Queen Nation gang.

Then the boy was k!lled in a drive-by shootout.

"The target was me ... he was only 2 years old," Ironman said.

Although he says he hasn't been active for nearly 10 years and now tries to talk young people out of joining gangs, Ironman still "blessed" two more sons into the predominantly Puerto Rican gang. "Families have to do that to be part of the nation," he said.

One son was blessed at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Morningside Heights four years ago during a quasi-religious ceremony. "It's like a christening," he said. "The priest holds the baby and we say our prayer at the same time. We have to have the window open and the baby pointed toward the sun."

Once blessed, the child is given yellow beads - the gang's color.

"He's a true gangster. The way he acts with people, the way he just wants to beat you up and punch you," Iron said of the 4-year-old "Latin Prince" he hopes will preach peace within the gang.

One Espicopal priest who "blessed-in" about 300 children kids into the a.ssociation Neta and the Latin Kings said he did not see anything wrong with the ceremony.

Newborn Blood, known as a Blood drop, is draped with beads and flanked by guns. Police later seized the pistols from the parents.

"It's not a criminal organization," said the Rev. Luis Barrios, who is also a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Barrios was removed from St. Mary's after tussling with his superiors in the Episcopal church.

"It's a street organization with the capacity to bring together young people in search of power, collective identity ... [and] belonging in the society that's rejecting them," Barrios said.

To get into a gang, a recruit often has to get beat up and hurt others to prove their loyalty, but born-in babies gain automatic acceptance.

"The ones that are born in have a little more power and respect," a 21-year-old former Brooklyn Crips member said. "I've seen little kids that you could tell their father is affiliated."

Crips parents refer to their kids' birthdays as "C-Day," instead of "B-Day," so as not to glorify the rival Bloods, he said.

Kids who grow up with gang parents are likely to become bullies at a young age, said Andrew Grascia, president of the New York State Gang Investigators.

"No child is born evil. They're taught evil things," he said. "You're taking a young, very fragile child who's being taught crime by the people who are supposed to secure and take care of him."

I love when suburban people try to make sense of what goes down in the hood.lol.

like dude said above, this has been going on for years. The Kings are much more than a "gang" and the reason why all children need to be "blessed" is because its just not about "wearing colors". They are more like a organized family. I grew up in NY and done seen it all, bloods, crips, kings, netas, etc.

Sh*t is real, but not as serious as the daily news is trying to make it seem. Most of those kids' parents ain't going to be affiliated like that when they get older anyway...

I'm sayin'!! I thought gangbangin went out with the 90s.

Naw but for real, this is sad. I used to bang from like 14-17 until my moms moved away to get me out of that sh*t. In the years that passed after that, I realized that the world really wasn't what I thought it was.

Its sad because with parents bein full on active members, the kids will never learn that there are other ways to view the world. And much better ways to attain power, joy and fulfillment

this is nothing new. its just sad that it has taken mainstream USA so damn long to see it. they only care when it begins to effect the mainstream.

every male in my family has at one point been bangin. i neva banged because my cousin is the fu*kn n*gga round here. so i didnt have to. and i dont see nothin wrong wit it. because it gives u a sense of belonging and a set of family values. what i do see a problem with is when they get to k!llin the females and children... thas where the line gets cut.

who cares if u dress ya kids in all red, yellow, blue, or burgundy?? throwin up a set is nothin more than a secret handshake u had as a kid. and dressin like ya friends wit da same jersey in middle school... let them do them. as long as the children can make a decision for themselves on if they wanna bang or not. cause its def. not for everybody.
