Watts, Los Angeles

to the decrease in gang-related death in Watts and the greater South Los Angeles area since 1992. Key hallmarks of the pact continue to influence life in Watts to date, with colors and territory having little to do with gang-related crime. Beginning in the 1980s, those African Americans who could leave Watts moved to other parts of South Los Angeles and suburban locations in the Antelope Valley, the Inland Empire (Inland Empire (California)), the San Gabriel Valley, Orange County (Orange County, California), and the San Joaquin Valley. The black population in Watts has been increasingly replaced by other demographic groups, primarily Hispanic immigrants of Mexican (Mexico) and Central American ancestry, as well as by a smaller proportion of Ethiopian and Indian ancestry. This demographic change accelerated after the 1992 riots. *'''R Line''' - Hancock Park to East Los Angeles (East Los Angeles, California); by way of 3rd Street, Vermont Avenue, 7th Street, Boyle Avenue, and Whittier Boulevard. *'''S Line''' - Watts (Watts, Los Angeles) to East Hollywood; by way of Central Avenue, Florence Avenue, Avalon Boulevard, Vernon Avenue, Vermont Street, 3rd Street, and Western Avenue (Western Avenue (Los Angeles)). *'''U Line''' - Nevin to West Adams; by way of Central Avenue, Jefferson Boulevard, Vermont Street, and 27th Street. Elaboration David LaChapelle opens ''Rize'' with a disclaimer that reads, "The footage in this film has not been sped up in any way." This is a necessary thing to note because the general movements and rapid body contortions that are characteristic of krump dance are done with such speed and intensity that they have been described as mind boggling at the least. LaChapelle then proceeds to open the film with footage of the Watts Riots that happened in the Watts (Watts, Los Angeles) neighborhood of Los Angeles, California in 1965. This upheaval was in response to oppressive acts done by white police officers onto a black motorist by the name of Marquette Frye in August of that year. This incident unleashed a long-brewing hatred and anger over the black oppression in America, which erupted into full-blown riots throughout South Central (South Los Angeles). The riots lasted a total of five days and at the cost of 34 lives and 40 billion dollars in property damage. Since then, other conflicts and feuds were started between many of the remaining sets of the Crips gang. It is a popular misconception that Crips sets feud only with Bloods. In reality, they fight each other — for example, the Rollin' 60s and 83rd Street Gangster Crips have been rivals since 1979. In Watts, Los Angeles, the Grape Street Watts Crips and the P Jay Crips have feuded so much that the P Jay Crips even teamed up with the local Bloods set, the Bounty Hunter Bloods, to fight against the Grape Street Crips.

Belize

Violent gang-related crime is high as of late, especially in Belize City and surrounding areas. The violence is related to narcotic trafficking and the struggle for power in the streets. Theft and assaults are common in some parts of the country. Travelers should maintain a high degree of vigilance. Like South Africa, Belize can be equally as safe as it is dangerous. Because of gaps in the economy and the lack of social welfare, many of the poor areas are prone to crime. Exercise caution


Milwaukee

has serious gang-related crime problems but is fine during the day, especially along the main commercial streets. Connect Newspapers Many community and neighborhood oriented weekly papers are offered for free in cafes and coffee shops. * '''''The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel''''' is Milwaukee's only major daily newspaper, distributed in the morning. $0.50 daily, $1.75 Sunday Edition. * '''''The Shepherd Express''''' is Milwaukee's free-press publication. * '''''Two Cents MKE''''' is a unique creative guide to discovering Milwaukee, a free bi-monthly magazine. * '''''The Onion''''' is distributed free all over the place and has a good local events listing called ''The A.V. Club''. * '''''OnMilwaukee.com''''' has lots of reviews and event listings online. Cope Also, the suburbs of Ozaukee, Waukesha, and Racine Counties have a reputation for being politically and socially conservative. It's your best bet just to go with the flow here. If you are a LGBT visitor, displays of affection will turn heads in these areas. Some suburbs are even more conservative than the rural parts of the state! Milwaukee is not as socially liberal as Madison (Madison (Wisconsin)), although people in Milwaukee are overall tolerant of each other, even if many of the assorted social and ethnic groups tend to avoid each other. Clique culture is big in the region and many people grew up together so don't be surprised to get an unfriendly reception from some people you meet being an outsider. Dressing in a non-conservative manner here (keeping up with fashion trends, v-necks, high fashion, etc.) is generally frowned upon in southeast Wisconsin and will get you some funny looks from locals so if this kind of attention bothers you then pack accordingly. The city is becoming more and more laid back. Consulates * WikiPedia:Milwaukee Dmoz:Regional North America United States Wisconsin Localities M Milwaukee commons:Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Mexico

become an issue; see Drug Traffic Issues (#Drug Traffic Issues) below. Political violence in Chiapas and Oaxaca has abated in recent years, and is far less of a threat than drug related crime. However, keep in mind that Mexican authorities do not look approvingly on foreigners who participate in demonstrations (even peaceful ones) or voice support for groups such as the Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional and its leader, Subcomandante Marcos, even if their images and slogans are commonly
