hundreds but of late it took me a minute surprises that are about to go on like a time ten hours having fun but the team is heyday these gangs most of the gangs of street fighters while others had specialties like they were robbers thieves or murderers one of the larger gangs of the time where the Gophers share share the goal yes it's a fucking badass name yet under the ground and reindeer were running a golf course near my teeth into the Gophers rule Hell's Kitchen which was then a rough Irish area in Manhattan ok so the Gophers are Hell's Kitchen to see hear know the turf went from seventh Avenue to eleventh Avenue and from fourteenth Street to forty second street that's pretty big fuckin as like people can walk there you just can't be a gang walking the other gays can come and drag anybody to anybody you like it raw but this part well that's kind of night life in the city share so avoid the area Monday Sara Lee will see the go well maybe the other plays are all controlled by gangs to go find that you want to be sent to find the puppy boys might be safe you go you go up up up the side by side ok put the boys call them doggies will not use his case of stab but it's pure disrespect the USSR guy the babies so they got the name because they were known to hide out in basements and Cellars with what same again the Gophers read it the peak membership around five hundred for money they targeted the Hudson River Railroad yards which were their territory and they targeted shops in the air they also raided the docs frequently ok just so much guys run down the dock shirt and taking the potatoes into one of these yet well everything comes off the dock right and you just go down like MIT unloading you just have that right I I go for or they were far from organized crime like a disorganized and they're very disciplined sometimes they would read themselves out as enforcers for politicians but mostly they just fight each other if the Gophers funny junk I mean they would it's a big territory around five hundred members assigned to the top sure getting a lot of turnover the top haiz oh and that come that's because from that work is that like nature where there's a will the turbulent gangs consider turbulent very fickle as far as who they really fall they would just like fire somebody yeah they wouldn't yet I don't know they can kill them of guys get fired from a gang but I mean you know I play Patty Yao yeah if I add the badly done but I'm the leader you can't fire me well the The The The The and says blow the guy he is ours so they would they would die also or be put in jail you know share of the game can really create any big leaders like the Dead rabbits to like use the famous one from the right to defy gravity yeah he was in the score is easy peasy

robbery the the Joe Goode who are going to found the hoods investors had a one long before and we couldn't join the duster is because of his condition right well yeah you can't be a part of that behave with just the one he was a bit famous because of fashion trend he started walking around with a collapsed chest I guess because you have one long known that mean the undead there's a downside to hear why he was named One Love I know it was because we think so until extra long he was a bit famous one day and his girlfriend that use coal is one of the jacket ok so he went out and right away he saw a cop so he blackjack blackjack blackjack is that the leather thing that has the mettle in and you whack someone with an x ray I don't know how you got what it was her wits well there's a

somebody who beat up this cop they see this jacket soon all the gang members one for the girlfriends and cops were being hunted all over Hell's Kitchen and beaten for their uniforms well I will say that you not see it going that way what is refreshing is for humans to be hunted for their pelts the eye that is true it's like it nice to be like finally yeah come after our own to be like look at this five c sport coat look as you well you're a fancy one hair covered fabric after she didn't write down what he was going on she became he became a way for a young wannabe kids to become full fledged member of the gangs he get a cop coat near Owen Madden who came to be called Tony was an eleven year old immigrant Hell's Kitchen and he wanted to become go for because quote They didn't work eleven yes eleven is tools mom he's like a mother I don't want to be home after work and watch the eleven years eleven years uh like to hit feathers in the head sure that your eleven I'd stay home from other of going to kill you in the uptake in your life it back if you'll let us focus same way bigger than you you are alive and here we go watch and study Stacie Buster to sell one long told Tony that he be a cop and stripped him of his entire uniform to become a member wait wait he's eleven yeah but it didn't take a wrong one for the eleven year only to be the pickup and return with the uniform on he was then a Gopher has a bad day for that yet it's one thing to lose your badge yet but have a Nikon or lady looked like I was short and too little for a little I think I may you she has her own little person a little those small little man little man little man little strong look back keep an eye on a bullish man toys not only with the man did not miss am I right it's like a small person sized these eight days and tidy men but is a strong nose tiny for such for sure right but he's a bit boyish looking out as a youth the youthful looking face body by thirty forty the the twenty Okay I know that unless nineteen seventeen I guai guai be on fourteenth quite certain this is sad when I did it well I believe you're on the hook for the I just go down the I left the keys about eleven Jesus God's terrifying good lord the Gulf it's like a like a small monkey yeah that's not big just how much of fists of fury monkey face how many kids were there was that I may put them altogether account of all the kids who won so yeah that was that was the whole of the terrifying though little are looking for a kid yeah but the scary you're fired you're fired cold yet the uniform hit out okay thank you for having me along your floors protect me from that year ago after several of his were beaten robbed of their jackets the cast began patrolling go for turf in groups of four shy of policy they get all those coats they've got to go out together by a Hootie should know the cops around low a minute to tease jacket the jacket fat quickly and did ok o one one lung also had a tough time as leader because he was consciously be hospitalized for TB Ramadan ways cut one long ok it makes sense another prominent Gopher leader was happy Jack mall rainy share Happy Jack he was known as Happy Jack because because it looked like he was always smiling Uh-huh the reason for that was because he had partial promises of his facial muscles okay am I not snazzy really happy no I would say maybe the opposite happened annoyed annoyed Jack irritated by being called the Happy Jack taught those caches smile again everybody cuts will have the door of our mouth so he was a psychopath today is the tenants and send it into a rage by telling him that certain enemies had made she comments about his Casa Grande and that he'd go on them that that is great so that's like football stuff we used the dispatcher wired for when I was in Wisconsin my body one type is just as Glade so fast but my friends was driving and he said to another body about this kid we saw walking on the street to enter high school he goes That's a kid to talk shit about us pull the car over and they pull the car of my body gets out head butts the guy I talk shit about me Mommy I thought we were like Oh my god did you actually talk shit about him know I just needed a buddy just the job over my ears do that they get to talk shit about Hugo's book are over how to have a guy I know I'm still here ok well the one guy lives out here the other guy dead well clothes keep going know is that to be enemies once I was happy jacks close friend Patty the priest asked Happy Jack why he didn't laugh out the other side of his face and Happy Jack pulled out a gun and shot Patty dead on the spot will raise the bar so people sign yet that was in for Happy Jack oh he was done it's the A and go away in this case yeah it doesn't seem like they get fired they fired yet he was as death and electrocuted sings well the Gophers also had for gang called the sort of like a spin off series yeah yeah exactly it's like literature yet those old it is called officially technical name was the Battle Social and Athletic Club I had left but short of the cone Lady Gophers right okay they're also baby Gophers who are the little kids are trying to get it they literally have done what the gap to it I i got regular Gap like female gap and how they got gap babies baby again is this is where the gap is based on kid again just like a bullpen of like babies that you're just breeding to be Gophers well I think they hear in the kiddy look up in the neighborhood to the tough guy like day cares yes a lot like cake so the ladies were led by this succession of very brave women like Alice mag say to go to hell cat Maggie mee and battle Annie was a good yet bad way those sound like action figures yet battling his room there was Annie Walsh and Lenny was called the queen of Hell's Kitchen was said to be the most quote feared brick hurler of her time wow so she has just wrecked on a certain monster she not see brick tile that's not something I would anticipate a break means right yeah I like having to dodge bricks especially which is really good at it yet as problematic ever Arbor folk and Roper oh yeah accurately yeah a lot of breaks your way she was called the quotes sweetheart of almost the entire Gopher gang release all the captains ok so I'm assuming she got around that means she can pull together a force of between fifty to several hundred women armed with clubs who would help in fight against other gangs are cops it's great just a fuckin just a army of Lady Grey like that's a great Oh shit hit the Lady Govs that any made a very good living during labor union wars by supplying lady fighters to battle on both sides of the labor issue so here's to a strike haha and and and then they pay the union would pay her descended people to fight on the line she's like extras and the company would pay for a sentence cabs to fi she has she's just stacking the deck from outside is just made us not doing anything other than just making making money to make a mom Yeah so the Gophers love a good fight one of them are written own battles they weren't even involved members of the five pointers and East means on reading ten St under the Allen Street arch of Second Avenue and over hundred gang members were shooting at each other from behind bridge pillars good lord around six go for members just stumbled across the fight and decide to join in they didn't even know who was fighting or why they just started shooting should I ever shared the issue was that skin is there's a budget the budget was fired as soon each other one go visit a lot to the guys was pop in at each other so why should we do upon ourselves I just reach out lasted almost an hour before the cops are from him to stop it only three gang members and Kit were killed and seven would not give aiming yeah ice and guns were that good at aiming right in the distance to for an hour an hours long in nineteen ten a monk Eastman gang member named Chick trick or while worst gang name I can't read yet here I am the staff how he bought a cafe on West twenty eight near Breaux it notes Barr ok it was called as Bixby gang members just like I like cappuccino is and I think the same which is put to the provolone today a nice bit of provolone and a turkey sandwich do yourselves a favor get the shark his reply to all but said the the a toy for honest at this new hour and a chai tea he seemed to not really be concerned of his gang members strolled in with Ida to goose the shower she was from Hell's Kitchen and the gang member had met her in Hell's Kitchen and choose very good looking woman that many of the Gophers left and then he had any proper back you know they fell for Johnny brought back to the bar ok and Ida I was called The Belle of the Maryland at that point but the Gophers were not all down with the gorgeous idea of being at the Maryland cafe so the Gopher captains fired up all the troops and they demanded she be returned or it would be war I did herself declined to leave her new found love and the owner trick or refused to intervene ok so on and the Gophers don't like it just because it's the hot lady from the neighborhood so they don't like that she's tiny but also some of them are dated her right there's one particular guys it's not it's not necessarily the location they just are like get out here don't think you're allowed to come in and take a lady from here I have an error ok time and they have a handbook because write and write all the shit down yet Pollo that interesting to know that because I would have dated a girl about Okay that's good to know oh yeah I think stays the same way ok so October nineteen ten for Gopher gunman calmly walked into the Maryland cafe sat down and ordered beers that you see that you call them done oh shit I'm worried about that in the bar there were six trigger gang members to bartenders and I did the goose on the cover think you can find we trick or gangsters territorial were quote amazed at the audacity of the four Gophers and watched him nervously without saying a word but I had the idea said something quote say use guys have gotten there yet I feel like this is a good time to not talk to him yup the Gophers ignored her and just sat there quietly drinking their beers and tell their all time with their beers and then one of them said quote Well let's have at it and then they all spun around with their guns in the hands and just started shooting five of the triggers men were seriously wounded the bartenders crash and hid behind the bar as it eyed at her new boyfriend these wells I mean have but is alive what do you do I go out fighting I've been behind the bar while an absolute behind a blind maybe I will use the income from Ghost is delicious food I'm never a good use by sell the Gophers just sat there and waited and then I seem to realize this is not going to work just hiding behind the bar and she looked at her cowering new boyfriend said quote calm out to take it then she pushed him out into the open he fell on his knees are trembling each golfer shot a lot like God that is the wars that's the worse that's the worst way to go I don't the worst noted I don't know is that it's the it's that he guided his trembling praying and the like now in Seattle like were fine to give you know that is huge and they always were issued him I look I see it you shop the other four guys in here the main target why hide behind the grooves I want to live it's not a option should be so then I'm so sorry I was shooting once the last go over and put the final bulletin was his last exploit and then they casually walked out which two days later earlier like to touch your ex the tub with whom I bonded to my ex was so volatile too she would get so upset with with me over the toilet seat and I would say baby look I needed I needed up sometimes you needed I don't know why always believed that something we have in common with yesterday's shoot in the the the first time the rain would just always be like that will you know it wasn't if it was wet so we have that common stock on Thursday for a drink juice but Lucy so than the guys casually walked outside or walking back to Hell's Kitchen and I do think you're nice to follow them a respectable distance I knew it was said to be glowing with pride over the shootout that happened for height I have never strayed again from Hell's Kitchen she was very prideful he Yeah okay worldviews whose uses are geese goose is okay so when the Gophers later leader Newburgh Gallagher was convicted of stuff and sent to sing sings gnashing lot of those too close to crowds get me into whatever the game went into disarray and split into three factions with o one Mountain now known as only the killer okay great run I was eighteen I was eighteen had a good seven years of trial that he led the largest group on he was known to have quote cruelty of the devil it's not surprising eleven yes well that was never to go right I mean we be of a cliff with a copy like say say last year a state of the total bought us a description of ponies from the
