'Blood' gangs are notorious street gangs who engage in and control a wide range of violent and criminal activities. Most of the information we have is about such gangs in the USA.

Apparently, in 1996, there were about 275 'Blood' plus 'Crip' gangs in Los Angeles County, but over 100 America cities have some form of gang culture in their midst, either 'Blood' or similar gangs.

How many members? It is estimated that there may be about 150,000 (1998) gang members operating throughout Los Angeles County. In 1995 gang homicides accounted for 805 deaths.
