Youths (the leader was 15 years old, I suppose, and the rest of the gang were about the same age) have sought to make the Baby Avenues in a serious force. Participants gang called themselves the Avenues Cribs, (crib – a shack, 'hut') since resided in the area of Central Avenue. But unlike its predecessors, the new generation of 'policy not hawala'. Panther ideas on public control over the streets, they realized wrong, and their activity was reduced to commonplace crime. Cribs have not been able to extend the revolutionary ideas of the 60's, but excelled in matters of fashion. Military style jacket and black leather – that's all that they borrowed from the Black Panthers. As identification mark Cribs wore blue scarves (if they do not call bandanas), tying them on the head or neck. Stanley Tookie Blue is their hallmark of their brand. Private dandies walked on streets of Los Angeles with canes, and who brought them the title, which is known today throughout the world. In 1971, several participants Cribs attacked a group of elderly Japanese women. Victims of robbery, being ignorant in the fashion of poor neighborhoods, described the attackers as persons with disabilities (cripple – a cripple, an invalid, very often – lame), because they were all with canes. The local press wrote about the incident, modifying the name of the gang Crips, and it's stuck in this form. There is also a version of the origin of the word Crips from the local slang term crippin (steal, rob).
