The Rollin' 60's Neighborhood Crips are a black street gang based in Los Angeles, California and Detroit, Michigan. Members of the Rollin' 60's Neighborhood Crips are identifiable by tattoos such as the number sixty or pitchforks; a common symbol of Folk Nation gangs. Rollin' 60's Neighborhood Crips use the number 60 as a graffiti marker to claim drug sale turf. An example of their graffiti is shown in the picture taken in MorningSide, Detroit in 2015.
According to the Los Angeles Daily News, Rollin' 60's is "the largest black criminal street gang in the City of Los Angeles with over 1,600 active members - the size of an Army brigade." Gang activities include murder, bank robberies, rape, drug trafficking, carjacking, assault and vandalism/graffiti. Originally formed in Los Angeles in the districts of Crenshaw and Slauson, the 60's have spread to other cities in the United States.
The majority of the Rollin' 60's Neighborhood Crips in Detroit, Michigan are located in Northwestern, Detroit. Rolllin' 60's Neighborhood Crips have a presence throughout the East and West side of Detroit with an estimated 150 members city wide. Led under the leadership of "Big Homie", the gang came into existence in 2006 around the area of Seven Mile Road and Tracey. Twelve members of the 60's have been indicted recently as part of a RICO case against the gang.
