Remundo Sanchez (on the left) ,a young boy and his older cousin (on the right) is about to do something that will stay with Remundo for the rest of his life.
”Sí dices algo, te mataré como un perro.”(If you say anything, I will kill you)
Reymundo and his family have moved to Chicago because the U.S is a place for opportunity and success and they want to have a better life then they did in Puerto Rico.
I love Chicago!
Reymundo shut up!
The beginning of Reymundos gang life is about to begin all in this little park of Armitage Park.
Good, how about yourself Loco.
How are you doing my brother.
In this scene, we have a young boy named Remundo who just got traumatized for life. His older cousin Alberto always beats him up and doesn’t treat him like a true family member. Alberto really crosses the line here though, he brought his little cousin up to a mini house and told him there would be a surprise. But there was no surprise, In fact the surprise was little Reymundo getting raped by his cousin.
You can see here that Lil Loco and the kings are fighting with the rival gang the Latin disciples.
Reymundo’s mother just met a new husband and they wanted to move to the city, little did Reymundo though that his stepdad was an abusive alcoholic who would beat him up till he would bleed. Reymundo would ask him mom for help but she would help his father in the beating and Reymundo never knew why his mom would do such a thing. They moved back to Puerto Rico and Reymundo got caught smoking weed and his mother then disowned him and got sent back to Chicago where the start of his gang life began.
Lil Loco is starting to realize the gang life isn’t for him and now he has a job at college and wants to get a degree at DePaul university.
Reymundo meets his new friend Loco who is a young adult and is a Latin king by heart. He encourages Reymundo to join and gives him th e name lil Loco because he thinks he is crazy because he doesn’t give a crap about anything and kills anyone who isn’t a king. Lil Loco saids he wants to join and he already has a lot of respect from the gang so it was easy for him to get in.
Lil Loco leaves the Latin Kings and is now a regular person.
Since Lil Loco is now apart of the gang, he has to do things called hits what are basically drive by shootings or starting gun fights with others. His first hit was a fight between the Gaylord’s and the kings because a king was killed and they wanted revenge. Lil Loco killed a total of 3 people and he was honored that day.
They are desciples get down!
He starts to isolate himself from the gang and gets called for many meetings and one day gets jumped by his own gang, this is when Lil Loco lost total respect for the kings because there supposed to have his back no matter what. Lil Loco pulls his gun out and ends up killing 2 of the kings. Loco is again called for meeting and finally goes because he doesn’t want to die.
Lil Loco has broke the Kings laws, what should we do?
Lil Loco has said he wants to leave and there is a violation to that, he must get up for 3 minutes straight and then it’s all over. He did it and now he is out of the gang and is back to a regular person and now has a regular life. He starts becoming more connected to god and tries to find people for him that will keep him on this path. He gets himself a full time job at the college DePaul and restarts his life.
