Long Beach Insane Crip Gang1

The Insane Crip Gang (ICG)1 is primarily, but not exclusively, an African-American street gang on the Eastside of Long Beach. They are primarily located on 21st Street and Lewis Ave, spreading to surrounding blocks. As most seasoned members from the late 80's and early 90's were either incarcerated or had passed away in gang-related retaliation. The new generation is now on the verge of new beginnings with barely any guidance to build a structure around the gang itself. An increase of illegal criminal activity has skyrocketed within the Long Beach city as an ongoing feud between rival gangs spiraled within a close vicinity of each other.

The Insane Crips consist of three cliques the Big Insane Crips, which mainly consist of the original members. The Young Filthy Crew (YFC), is the second clique to spun after the original clique, primarily composed of members from the second generation. Followed by the third clique known as the Baby Insane or the Baby Insane Crips (BIC), established in the early 1990s. The Insane Crips, once shared a close alliance with the Rollin 20s Crips co-existed well as a unit in the same area of Long Beach, bonded by neighborhood and family ties. However, during the 1980's, this close alliance was shattered by pride and egos resulting in a trial of casualties on both sides. The Insane Crips also feud with the West Coast Crips and Varrio Longo. They're cliqued with the Hoover gangs in Los Santos and are also known to feud with the Too Naughty Too Nasty Gangster Crips, Mac Mafia Crips, Bricc Boy Crip, Rollin' 80's Crips, and all other Neighborhood Crip gangs.

In modern times, the Insane Gang consists of a small amount of members, ranging from their early teens to their mid-twenties. The gang's recent activities around their neighborhood the past few years has established them as a gang with a dominant but small presence in it's area. They are known to sport apparel by the Oakland Raiders (formerly known as the Los Angeles Raiders), with black and gray as their primary colors. Members of the Baby Insane clique adopted apparel by the Cleveland Indians as their symbol and are known to sport red as their primary color. As of 2019, the street gang has seen steady growth of new members and even some sympathy and open support from residents of Long Beach. Most new members of the street gang who have became known to the police through surveillance and arrests are between the ages of 16 and 20. The street gang, unlike many others within the neighborhood, seems to have a higher interest in recruiting young men and young women who are in their late teens and early 20s rather than youths who are still in childhood or early adolescence. It stands to reason that the street gang, through recruiting this relatively older age cohort, are looking for more experienced and hardened criminals to join their rank.


Beach City Tension
Joshua Hopefield was charged with one count of first degree murder and two premeditated attempted murders; Hopefield was also a member of the Insane Crips gang. The charges stemmed from the March 6, 1999, shooting that resulted in the death of Shannon Myers and wounding of two additional persons. The brutal crimes that underlie this case find their genesis in the long-standing feud between two major street gangs in Long Beach, the Insane Crip Gang and the Rollin 20s Crips. Members of these gangs consider themselves mortal enemies and will go to great lengths to avenge acts of disrespect, both real and perceived, toward their respective gangs. Both gangs have several sub-groupings or sets. Hopefield, whose street name is "Trazy Smurf", was one of the prominent members of the Insane Crip Gang. Myers, was a member of the Rollin 20s Crips.

The murder victim Shannon Myers, nicknamed "Shoota", belonged to the Rolling 20's Crips. In the evening of March 6, 1999, Myers drove through a Long Beach neighborhood with passengers Derek Mitchell and Miracle Taylor, who it appears, were not gang members. Stating that he saw someone he knew Myers turned his car around and drove to where Hopefield was standing alongside Leon Hinton. Very few words were exchanged before Hinton pulled out a gun and Hopefield asked Myers if he was Shoota, his known alias. He said he was and Hinton put the gun away.

Hinton said he and Hopefield were Insane Crips. Myers told them the passengers, Mitchell and Taylor, were not gang members. Invited to get out of the car and talk, Myers instead turned his car around again. He said he would drop off his passengers and return. Hopefield approached the driver's side of the car and said "So you Shoota from 20's," and started shooting into the vehicle with a .38-caliber handgun. Myers managed to start driving away. As he did so, both Hopefield and Hinton fired at the car which resulted in it crashing into a pole. It was later found out that Myers died of a gunshot wound to the chest. Taylor was shot in the liver and Mitchell in the shoulder, but both survived. The evidence was not clear who fired the shots that hit Taylor and Mitchell.

As relevant, a jury convicted Hopefield of the first degree murder of Shannon Myers and the premeditated attempted murders of Derek Mitchell and Miracle Taylor. It also found true as to these counts that he "intentionally and personally discharged a firearm and proximately caused great bodily injury or death to any person other than an accomplice. The Court of Appeal reversed the two attempted murder convictions, finding the trial court erroneously instructed the jury on the doctrine of transferred intent. It's motion to reverse the remaining gang enhancement was denied.

Our ultimate goal is to portray a realistic Long Beach based street gang with a community like atmosphere. We'd like to hold ourselves up to a pretty high standard of roleplay and we say that in the humblest way possible. It is imperative that you check it frequently to stay up to date with the conversations and topics that's present revolving the faction within the Discord. If you're not serious about role-playing with us and don't have any quality role-play to contribute to the faction then don't even bother joining because you will be weeded out and removed without a warning.
