10 Of The World’s Most Dangerous Prison Gangs
While there are plenty of dangerous gangs that operate across countries all around the planet, many of the most vicious and deadly are located in prisons. Despite security in correctional facilities being so high, the fact that so many violent and sadistic people are in such close proximity means that they will inevitably join together in separate groups. Such prison gangs can be incredibly powerful in jails, organizing the drug trade on the inside and carrying out extreme acts of violence to protect themselves and their members.
Black Guerilla Family
Sometimes going by the name of the Black Family, the Black Guerilla Family actually began in 1966 and is one of the most feared gangs in all of the US. Operating mostly in California, they are closely associated with the Black Power Movement and have violent feuds with racist gangs such as the Aryan Brotherhood and the Nazi Low Riders.
While the Nuestra Familia gang was founded within the prison system, they have no problem with committing a range of acts out in public. They are believed to be involved in a number of extortion and drug dealing operations, while police also suspect the gang carries out frequent executions.
