You're right that there's definitely no law or street law about this...BUT at least they were innovative, calling their own s**t what it was, and literally made their own documented rules/ideals/etc - and they definitely looked to DIFFER from the early 1900's mafias/orgs. Likewise, all 7 of the major 'american core gangs' ALL started in prison as protection groups and grew from that. What these 'wanna-be' gangs from NY, NO, Jersey, Mia, etc did was literally steal the name for street cred, and didn't "create" anything. What pisses off the older 'gang' generation too is that they actually had a meaning/ideals back then that they were trying to do - and have forged alliances/treaties with each other. These new gangs are just made to add to your rep, and talk ish - nothing more than that.
YES, I actually DO still have a draft of the college dissertation paper, with pics and all that at home (the professor has/kept the original final longer version). I'm at work now, but when I get home I'll look for it for you.
