  • Definitions of Gang and Clubs:

    Gang:# S: (n) gang, pack, ring, mob (an association of criminals) “police tried to break up the gang”; “a pack of thieves”

    Club:# S: (n) club, social club, society, guild, gild, lodge, order (a formal association of people with similar interests) “he joined a golf club”; “they formed a small lunch society”; “men from the fraternal order will staff the soup kitchen today”

    YOU DECIDE

  • Your right Elena, the Hell’s Angels and Mongols in my opinion are gangs, just like the Surenos and Nortenos and the various Asian and Black gangs. When we do call them “clubs” we are saying it sarcastically. Their attorneys have told them to always deflect the “truth” by calling themselves a club. And don’t forget the White Supremacy Gangs too.

  • Gang member? I’m confused. So why didn’t you call him a Sureno club member? You have no problem calling well known vicious motorcycle gangs “motorcycle clubs”. What are your policies for deciding who you call gangs?
