History of South Central, LA

Bunchy Carter had converted most of the Slausons to Black Panthers. After his death at UCLA during a COINTELPRO fueled beef with the US Organization, the LAPD raided the offices. After a 4 hour showdown led by Geronimo Pratt, the Panthers office was destroyed and shut down. Within 2 years, the Crips would be formed, in part due to a lack of leadership in the community.
