The Crips

The execution of Stanley Tookie Williams, co-founder of American street gang known as "The Crips", reminded me an episode of South Park.

Cartman was upset about unable to join an organization founded by two handicapped boys, Jimmy and Timmy. Their organization is also called "The Crips", as in "The Cripples".


  1. Since you usually like to de-bunk things, I thought I would mention that Tookie joined the Crips about a year and a half after it was formed. He did control a large territory, but I don't think he can be considered a co-founder.

  2. I guess either NPR or CNN is wrong which wouldn't surprise me since the both have a history of not fact checking their own stories.
