VARRIO TEMPLE STREET GANG INITIALS "TST"ORIGINAL L.A. SIDE "WEST SIDE"By FLAKO TST PDLSTHE VARRIO TEMPLE STREET WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1923, THE FAMILY LAST NAME WHICH STARTED TST WAS "TEMPLEROSA ", AND THEY HAD CAME FROM MEXICO, TO TEXAS, THEN TO CALIFORNIA, ESTABLISHING THE VARRIO IN BOTH PLACES IN THE 1920s. TIME LATER IT BECAME "TEMPLE STREET" BECAUSE OF THE L.A. STREET THEY LIVED ON, AND EVENTUA...LLY, AS MOST VARRIOS IN L.A. BEGAN TO CLAIM "SIDES", TST BEGAN TO ADD/CLAIM "WEST SIDE" INDICATING WHAT SIDE OF THE CITY THEY WERE ON THE WEST SIDE OF LOS ANGELES. THE ORIGINAL VARRIO IS LOCATED IN THE CENTRAL L.A. AREA WEST OF DOWNTOWN, SOURROUNDING THE NEIGHBORHOOD AROUND TEMPLE AND CORONADO STREETS AREA, IN THE COMMUNITY WHICH TODAY IS KNOWN AS THE RAMPART DISTRICT. BOTH THE TEMPLE STREET AND THE CLANTON 14 STREET VARRIOS ARE SAID TO BE THE TWO OLDEST WEST CENTRAL L.A. VARRIOS IN EXISTANCE TO THIS DAY. TEMPLE STREET WAS STARTED BY MEXICAN AMERICANS, BUT HAS ALWAYS HAD SOME CENTROS, FILIPINOS, WHITES, AND A VERY FEW BLACKS. HISPANIC MEMBERS IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE MAJORITY OF THE GANG.NEVERTHELESS ETHNIC GROUPS HAVE REMAINED TIGHT AND ALL IS SAID TO BE GOOD IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD BETWEEN THESE RAZA GROUPS. THE VARRIO OVER THE YEARS HAVE ADDED NUMEROUS CLIQUES AND HAS STARTED OUT RECRUITMENT IN VARIOUS OTHER SECTIONS OF SOxCAL AS WELL AS IN OTHER FAR-FLUNG PLACES. IN ADDITION, OTHER WELL KNOWN CLIQUES LIKE SATANAS AND REBELS 13 WHICH WERE ORIGINALLY A PART OF THE TEMPLE STREET VARRIO, WENT OFF SOLO. SATANAS "STS" BECAME LARGELY MADE UP OF FILIPINOS WITHIN TST CLIQUE RANKS AND THEY EVENTUALLY BROKE OFF FROM TEMPLE STREET. ANOTHER VARRIO "R13" REBELS 13, ALSO SPLIT OFF FROM TST AND THEY WENT ON TO ESTABLISH THEMSELVES IN THE EAST HOLLYWOOD AREA. BUT UNLIKE THE RANKS OF SATANAS WHICH WERE FILLED UP MAINLY BY FILIPINOS, THE REBELS 13 VARRIO BECAME AND REMAINED PREDOMINANTLY MEXICAN, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, THEY TOO HAVE REMAINED ON COOL RELATIONS WITH THE OLD TEMPLE STREET VARRIO. THE TEMPLE STREET VARRIO OVER TIME HAS EXPANDED OUTSIDE ITS ORIGINAL TERRITORY AND HAS ESTABLISHED ITSELF IN FAR CORNERS OF L.A. COUNTRY, NORTHERN CALIFAS AND IN LAS VEGAS NEVADA, SALT LAKE CITY UTAH, PENNYSYLVANIA, WASHINGTON, AND OREGON. AND IN ADDITION TO HAVING ESTABLISHED GROUNDS ON THE WEST SIDE OF L.A. TST HAS HEADS REPRESENTING THEIR VARRIO IN SOUTH CENTRAL, SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, PALMDALE, LANCASTER, ANTELOPE VALLEY, CERRITOS, GLENDALE, LONG BEACH, POMONA AND OAKLAND. TST HAS EVEN GONE INTERNATIONAL, HAVING A PRESENCE IN CITIES LIKE LONDON IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND IN OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE AUSTRALIA AND BRITISH COLUMBIA CANADA, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO AND SANTANA EL SALVADOR. TEMPLE STREET IS ALSO WELL REPRESENTED ACROSS-THE-SEA IN THE PHILLIPPINES WITH THE PINOY LOCOS CLIQUE. THE TST PINOY LOCOS 13 CLIQUE WAS ORIGINALLY STARTED OUT IN THE EARLY 1980s IN THE HOMEGROUNDS OF WEST CENTRAL L.A. BUT EVENTUALLY WITH THE DEPORTATION OF MANY OF THE FILIPINO MEMBERS OF THE CLIQUE TO THE PHILLIPINES, THE CLIQUE BECAME LARGER THAN EVER OVER IN THAT COUNTRY. CLOSER TO HOME, TST FOR A SHORT TIME ESTABLISHED AN EAST SIDE TEMPLE STREET IN EAST L.A., AND LATER THEY WENT ON TO ESTABLISH THEMSELVES IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY (NORTH SIDE) WITH THEIR VALLEY TOKERS AND SUR DEMONS KLICK. TST ALSO SET UP CAMP IN THE SOUTH SIDE OF L.A. (SOUTH CENTRAL) WITH THEIR 52ND ST TOKERS [TKS] CLIQUE. IN THE EARLY 1980s TST ADDED TO THEIR RANKS THE PARK DILLON LOCOS CLIQUE. THESE PDLS VATOS WERE ORIGINALLY A STREET-FOOTBALL TEAM GANG. THIS TOOK PLACE DURING AN ERA IN L.A. THAT WAS RIPE-FULL WITH FOOTBALL TEAMS ALL OVER THE PLACE WHICH WERE ALL EVENTUALLY EITHER CLIQUED UP TO THE OLD-GUARD GANGS OR THEY HAD TO SADDLE UP AN BECOME THEIR OWN GANG. THE PARK DILLON LOCOS PLAYED AND HANGED OUT AT THE PARK DILLON APARTMENTS LOCATED ON 2ND STREET AND DILLON. THESE APARTMENTS ARE STILL THERE TO THIS DAY, THEY JUST TOOK OFF THE OLD ENGLISH SIGN THAT SAID PARK DILLON. NEVERTHELESS, THE PARK DILLON LOCOS CLIQUE STILL LAYS CLAIM TO THEM AND THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOOD. VARRIO TEMPLE STREET GANGSTERS WETHER THEY ARE IN THE PHILLIPPINES OR ON THE HOMEFRONT; WETHER THEY CLAIM WEST SIDE, NORTH SIDE OR SOUTH SIDE, THEY ALL FALL UNDER THE "13" FLAG, AND ALL THEIR CLIQUES REPRESENT THE VARRIO WELL. = VARRIO TEMPLE STREET 13 GANG CLIQUES = PARK DILLON LOCOS [PDLS], MOUNTAIN VIEW LOCOS [MVLS], PEEWEE LOCOS [PWLS], TINY LOCOS [TLS], PINOY LOCOS [PLS], PARTY LOCOS [PLS], MIDGET LOCOS [MLS], MICHELTORENA LOCOS [MTLS], ROSEMONT LOCOS [RLS], DUKES [DKS], VALLEY TOKERS [VTKS] --SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, SUR DEMONS KLICK [SDK] -- -- SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, PALMDALE, LANCASTER, CORONADO STREET [CST, NIGHT STALKERS [NSK], CUT THROATS [CTS], MANIACS [MNS], LOS MALOS [LMS] --PENNSYLVANIA, TOKERS 52 [TKS] SOUTH CENTRAL, DEATH BOYS LOCOS [DBLS], CHARROS [CHS], BAGOS [BGS], SATANAS [STS]REBELS 13 ~ DIABLOS [DBS] AND THE REST...
