Members of the Rollin' 60's Neighborhood Crips are identified by tattoos as other gang members, but additionally wear Seattle Mariners caps for the large "S"(sixty) or University Of North Carolina caps for the blue color and the "NC" (neighborhood crip).
Their rivalry with the 83 Gangster Crips, which started more than 30 years ago, caused more than 100 deaths on both sides.
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 throughout the United States in various cities including New York City, Newark, Nashville, Baltimore, Detroit, and Atlanta. Their most notable rivalries are with the Hoover Crips, Eight Tray Gangster Crips, and Bounty Hunter Bloods, although these rivalries vary from city to city.
