Gang art on wall

Saw this on the wall of a building at St. Louis and Cullom. Right across from Patrick Henry.

    @Ward, I've never sliced my data to see what district has the most active gangs, but I have noticed that 25th has many. Active gangs in 25th, 2013-01-01 through today include Almighty Harrison Gents, Almighty Imperial Gangsters, Almighty Latin Eagles, Almighty Latin Kings, Almighty Latin Pachucos, Almighty Simon City Royals,...

    @Ward, I've never sliced my data to see what district has the most active gangs, but I have noticed that 25th has many. Active gangs in 25th, 2013-01-01 through today include Almighty Harrison Gents, Almighty Imperial Gangsters, Almighty Latin Eagles, Almighty Latin Kings, Almighty Latin Pachucos, Almighty Simon City Royals, Almighty Stoned Freaks, Familia Stones, Four Corner Hustlers, Gangster Disciples, Insane Ashland Vikings, Insane Deuces, Insane Gangster Satan Disciples, Insane Latin Brothers, Insane Orquestra Albany, Insane Spanish Cobras, La Raza, Latin Lovers, Latin Souls, Maniac Latin Disciples, Milwaukee Kings, Spanish Gangster Disciples, Spanish Lords, Young Latino Organization Cobras.

    The most active of that list are the IG's, LK's, LB's, OA's, SC's, and MLD's.

    The city as a whole was down about 550 gang tags in 2015 compared to 2014. And 2014 was about 100 higher than 2013.

    @Ward, looking back over my data, I made an error in listing gangs tagging in the 17th and 25th. A few of the gangs I listed only had tags thrown up against them, but did no tagging themselves.

    Gangs in 17th that only have target and no source are: Almighty Latin Pachucos, Almighty Stoned Freaks, Black Disciples, Insane Popes, OMC, Spanish Lords, Surenos, and YLO.

    Gangs in the 25th that only have target and no source are: ALmighty Harrison Gents, FS, Latin Souls, and Spanish Lords.

    Taking that into account, 17th district has 22 active tagging gangs in the last 3 years. 25th district had 20. There are more active gangs tagging in the 17th than the 25th. 25th district does not have the most individual gangs when looking at graffiti.
