Title: Ogden "Trece"
Comments: Just curious, what is it that they represent? How is it you become affiliated, and what are the benefits?
I'm surprised you're asking that. What are the 'benefits' of any gang - a short lifespan and time in prison. You will do well to keep yourself away from such groups.

Comments: [..] Their number can be 13 if they want that don't mean their [ripping Sureno of it] ain't about number or colors it's about [your] gang, just like [you] would fight for [your] country not for an American flag, gangs fight for each other not their number or their color that just represents them just like an American flag represents America [..] they can both have 13 as their number that don't mean they have to get along they're a Utah gang they don't answer to anybody but themselves so they can make whatever color or number theirs that they want who can tell them any different? I know a grip of them dudes they're gangstas.
Something should be done about these wannabe power hungry youth that do not want to take the time to work for what they have but rather do it through bullying and lawlessness.

Hispanic gangs like Ogden Trece should be a thing of the past with the new Trump era crack down on them. How these gangs were able to control whole neighborhoods while being illegal in the country is an insult to America.

Title: Utah Gang
Comments: 18st don't run anything in Utah prison. If you have been locked up in prison then you know Surenos are as 1, 18st, Chiques, avenues, White fence, Toonerville, Dog town, etc etc they are not segregated, they are unified in prison. Anyone who says 18st runs the Surenos in Utah prison then they must be a 18 Streeter themselves. In recent years part of Ogden Trece joined the Surenos while the other part of Ogden Trece didn't. Also known as Ogden Kings..those are the ones who didn't join the Surenos in prison. Ogden city is mixed and unorganized when it comes to gangs. You have two brothers, 1 claiming Norte and the other brother claiming Ogden Trece..and then they all hang out and talk to each other..it makes no sense but hey if that's what makes them tough/cool then so be it. Sur Town Chiques were started by members from La Colonia Chiques back in the early 90's. Just like Nortenos used to be southerners. Members from southern California started Nuestra Familia and Nortenos were born. Moral of the story is that every one switches up one day. Know your history before you join a gang at least.
I doubt all gangs get along so well as you put it otherwise they would just form one big gang. Sad truth is gangs are not a positive influence on society especially the youth. Instead of focusing on studies and their future a lot of children get hooked on the gang life.
