  1. Maybe somebody moved 22 miles from the city of La Mirada because they heard that John Marshall High School has the Advanced Placement courses they needed for admission to UCLA.

    or maybe they just adopted the name because they moved from La Mirada to an apartmentt in east Hollywood on La Mirada Avenue?

    1. Hi there Anonymous, sounds like two plausible scenarios (especially the first). I was told that VLMLS is from La Mirada, which seems to be the only fact right now, and that can have various reasons. But post it here if you know more.

    2. WELL I AM FROM LMLS X3 THE NAME IS FROM A STREET OFF OF FOUNTAIN AND VERMONT IN HOLLYWOOD AND WE ARE ALSO ONLY AFFILIATED WITH LMLS SELA 'SOUTH EAST LA' IN THE CITY OF LM ... NO OTHER ALIS MY FRIEND BOXER STARTED THE GANG IN 85 AND ONE DAY HE SAW THE STREET ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL KING JR HIGH THEN WE ALL WENT TO MARSHAL AFTER FOR HIGH SCHOOL! MAY I ALSO ADD THANK YOU FOR NOT BEING DISRESPECTFUL AS SOME CAN BE JUST TO BE D*CKS ... YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO WALK OUR STREETS ... AS FOR THE UCLA PROGRAM WE ARE CLUELESS BUT I SEE YOUR A SMART & EDUCATED MAN AS YOU KNOW THERE'S A DIFFERENCE I ADMIRE YOUR RESPECT AND COMMON SENSE THAT IS A RARE COMBO BELIEVE IT OR NOT

  2. VLM AND LMLS HAVE MERGED VARRIO LA MIRADA VLM AND LAMIRADA LOCOS LMLS ONE BIG MIRADERO FAMILIA WOOOOOO !

  3. Actually that is incorrect. La Mirada Locos started at La Mirada Avenue in the early 70's if i'm not incorrect. La Mirada is not the same as La Mirada Locos all though they are now clicked up together they are still not the same Varrios. La Mirada is from La Mirada City near Norwalk and La Mirada Locos X3 is from East of Hollywood. (Another Difference is that La Mirada from La Mirada City doesn't put Locos when they tag). La Mirada Locos Gang has a big territory. Starting from Bellevue Park to behind LACC to part of SilverLake.

  6. From my understanding The o.g's started the gang in the late 70's got the
    Name from a lil street in West Hollywood area La Miranda st..near heliotrope..
    Known to brainwash youngsters to put in work..known for their tags..Members
    R mostly Salvadorians who when deported run with MS gang in El Salvador..most high school drop outs with no future n nothing to live for ..they try to stay under the radar with the new "Tha Look" Tattoos n tags..live in the bellevue park ,commonwealth,westmoreland,Normal st,Clinton st area's ..They changed there look as well no more big pants or gangster look It's more skater or biker look..TAGS R KNOWN as V.LML,Tha Look,VLM clicks Dead ends,mds,midgets,tls,Lockwood,Normal st n so onn..they always look to recruit taggers..Grow up fellas

  7. La mirada Ave..is where they adopted the gang name in the late 70's a street in n near west Hollywood Ca. Gang was form by older gangs such as Rebels x3,WS18st n so onn..known shot callers or puppet masters consist of Boxer n Psycho who recruit young kids by promising them with luxury lifestyle which never is true only
    They the shot callers r ballers while others r used for enforcing n tagging.Records show boxer was car jacked by a DTW/Silverlake gang member huey n later testified in court which is considered a no no on gang rules..sources also say the V.Lm leader is incarcerated for multiple felony charges...Most informents or sources to these stories r former LML's Aka Tha Look...members or dropouts thanx for the info fellas its good for people to know the history..FYI Silverlake gang was a gang for about 2 yrs that just dissapeared when members were getting murdered or were incarcerated..Hope this helps gang historians...

  8. Look most of these are wrong im 42 yrs old and im from that area the gang was started in the 1976 on a 1 block strecth of street lamirada ave located between vermont ave and liman place i moved in 1997 but through much of the 80's and early 90;s this area also had a black gang named lamirada hustlers that formed as a click in the mid 80's the black gang was allowed to take the name lamirada because all of the kids grew up together unlike now blacks and latino shared hoods peacefully in the past. some of the some of the founding fathers of la mirada are boxer ,rascal ,dreamer, negro its always been a small but strong hood they do get along with the gang from the city of la mirada but they are totally seperate sets they used to have alliances with temple st and echo park but from what i know now they pretty much beef with any and everyone they are located in east not west hollywood and altough the boundries are always changing they hold a sizable area main rivalries are rockwood, temple st , ms13 crs,

  9. So I recently had an encounter with a few gang members from this gang. They tried to run down my dog for whatever reason in the park. Cops arrested them and I had to ID them... Is this a violent gang I should be concerned about? Like are they tagging and dealing only or do they out people down 6 feet under? Thanks for the any advice. Did not want to cross these guys but was scare for my safety.

    1. Hi, unfortunately I can't give you any advice on that. I recommend you inquire with your local PD for the most accurate and up to date info. No reason to panic. However, this is Los Angeles, so some caution is called for.

  10. arley bueno is going away for 25 to life....

    deon anderson (their only black member) also recently got taken out... this gang is on the slide down.. all that's left is their punk 14 year olds... rampart PD caught them gang tagging in bellevue park and got bueno and anderson on the third strike.... vats may be locos, but gatos also be stupid as fuck getting caught tagging for your third strike is comical....

  11. Other ogs are Johnny and Oso. No Washington boys. 1981-82, not 85. Boxer claimed Madness locos with Oscar. Burns was PWWS 18 street, Virgil/Mrlrose was 18cms, and after Lil Travieso, huero and pepe (18st) died in silverlake car accident, the gang grew with new territory and membership. That's on the real. Beefs with tst, ms, rsl, and others came later.

  12. The S13 crossing out 18th is Sotel, a longstanding West LA gang.
