Southside Redlands???

Read the third paragragh, it's not really proof that there is a SSR but it does make you wonder.
This was a real good read by the way, it gives a good backround on Varrio Pecan St.



Fisher said he was friends with members of "Sex Cash" and "Unknown Mafia," but did not admit to being a member in any gang. Fisher was involved with a party crew named Hypnotic Minds. A party crew consists of people who throw parties.

Riverside County Sheriff Deputy George Reyes testified as a gang expert for the People. He defined criminal street gangs, rats or snitches, and monikers. He explained the difference between a gang member and an associate, how gang members claim their membership, what it means to throw up gang signs, the definition of party crew, what it meant in the gang subculture to "get caught slipping" (being in a vulnerable position not expecting anything to happen), what respect means in a gang context, that gang members use violence to instill fear, and the repercussions for claiming a gang if you are not a member of that gang.

Reyes testified that Pecan Street began as a gang in 2004 by some members who lived on Pecan Street. Reyes believed Gabriel and Jose were members of Pecan Street. Reyes did not know Lowary to be an active member of Pecan Street, but opined he was an associate of Pecan Street from October 2005 to February 2006 based on his association with Jose and Gabriel. Reyes identified Mendoza as a member of South Side Redlands, but not Pecan Street. He also stated Acuna was not a member of Pecan Street, but associated with them.

Reyes testified that Hypnotic Minds was a party crew in Moreno Valley consisting of young males who were African-American, Hispanic and Caucasian. It was sometimes considered a rival of gangs.

The prosecution provided Reyes with a hypothetical mirroring the facts of the fist fight at school and the shovel incident, and Reyes opined that the shovel incident could be for the benefit of the gang because it was in retaliation for the fist fight. Reyes reasoned that Jose was disrespected pretty significantly in losing the fist fight, so to regain respect he had to do something of equal or greater significance to Fisher. Reyes testified the retaliation was not only for Jose, but for the other gang members and the gang's reputation.

Based on a hypothetical mirroring the facts of the ditch party incident, Reyes testified the crime was committed for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a criminal street gang to further, promote, or assist in criminal conduct by gang members because it was a continuation of the previous dispute, and until a gang member feels satisfied he has gained his respect back, he will continue to engage in this type of conduct, and the violence will increase.

Based on a hypothetical mirroring the facts of the January 30, 2006 shooting, Reyes opined it was committed for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a criminal street gang with the specific intent to promote, further, or assist in criminal conduct by gang members. Reyes opined the shooting was a continued progression of the gang's violence, and "to further the respect [the gang] demand[ed]." Reyes further testified the shooting was in association with a gang because there were two active members from the same gang participating, even though they were brothers.

Those are court documents I found. I kinda find it hard to believe a person from NSR would say he was from SSR unless he was just that nervous he forgot what hood he was from.
