亲爱的宝贝,美国黑帮的历史由来已久,其间不乏许多臭名昭著的黑帮头领。尤其是在20世纪初期,随着美国禁酒运动的开展,美国黑帮之间争权夺势,龙争虎斗,产生了一大批叱咤黑帮社会的龙头人物。本期如果爱www.iflove.com黑帮电影纪录片将继续向您介绍这批在罪恶和血腥之中成长起来的黑帮人物,再现那段触目惊心的黑帮历史。

刚刚经历过第一次世界大战的美国,纽约黑帮迅速崛起。此时的纽约黑帮中,风雨人物当数查理•卢西安诺。他与另一黑帮分子本杰明•希格尔狼狈为奸,靠走私烈酒收取保护费不断扩展自己的门户。当然,这些黑帮头子虽然赫赫有名,享誉黑社会,但下场可没有那么好。正如一名啤酒大王所说,有过许多大人物,也有过许多小人物,然后一切很快结束。也许,这句话是对美国黑帮的最好概括。

American Gang History: Americans fascinated with gangs and gangsters

Gangs of New York: An Informal History of the Underworld in the United States of America: The Gangs of New York is a fascinating chunk of controversial history (some question its accuracy), an interesting period piece written nearly 90 years ago– but fans of the highly-touted film should BEWARE if they’re expecting for something closely related to the Martin Scorese flick. early brutal gang warfare, during a time in the 19th century where gangs literally swarmed all over New York City; blow-by-blow bloody battles and legendary gang fighters in a city virtually in the grip of gangs — leading to the creation of the NY City Police department; and the politically dominating Tammany Hall machine’s birth and growth in the 19th and 20th centuries, set within the context of a politically corrupt, violence-prone city.

National Gang History: Gangs have been in existence for as long as there have been inhabitants of this world. The word thug dates back to India in the year 1200 AD and it refers to a gang of criminals (Thugz) that roamed the country pillaging towns in their course. These Thugz had their own symbols, hand signs, rituals and slang. In the United States, we grew up with tales of our own form of thugs like pirates and gangsters, therefore, gangs, undoubtedly, are not a new concept.

Throughout the 1800′s, Americans were fascinated with gangs and gangsters. The James Gang, Billy the Kid and other outlaws, legend has it, ruled the Wild West. As the late 1800′s roared in, the new generation of gangs and gangsters was created out of the new immigrants. Irish gangs like the Whyos, Dead Rabbits and Plug Uglies, and Jewish gangs like the Monk Eastman Gang terrorized New York City streets. The most notorious gang during this era formed in New York City during the late 1890′s and early 1900′s. This gang, called the Five Points Gang, because of its home turf being situated in the Five Points (Bowery) Section of Lower Manhattan, would change the mold of the American outlaw forever.

The Five Points Gang, led by Italian immigrant, Paolo Antonini Vaccarelli, also known as Paul Kelly and his second in command, Johnny Torrio, was the most significant street gang to form in the United States, ever! Johnny Torrio, who became a significant member of the Sicilian Mafia (La Cosa Nostra) recruited street hoodlums from across New York City to the Five Points Gang. The Five Points Gang became the Major League to many young street gangsters and a farm club for the Mafia. The most notorious recruit into the Five Points Gang was a teenaged boy of Italian descent who was born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1899 to immigrant parents. His name was Alphonse Capone, better known as Scarface. He became a member of the James Street Gang, which was a minor league of sort, to the Five Pointers. One of Capone’s childhood friends, and fellow member of the Five Points Gang, was another street thug named Lucky Luciano.

In 1919, while being sought by authorities in connection with a gangland murder in New York, Al “Scarface” Capone moved to Chicago when summoned by Johnny Torrio. Torrio needed his assistance in maintaining control of Chicagoland mob territories. Al Capone, eventually became the most violent and prolific gangster in Chicago, if not, the United States, law enforcement has ever experienced. The Al Capone style of gangster has molded the American gangster experience. As will be illustrated later, it is alive today in our street gangs from a variety of backgrounds and races.

As street gangs, influenced by mobsters such as Capone, flourished during the 1920′s and 30′s gangs became a symbol of lower income neighborhoods and ethnic ghettos. America’s new immigrant communities and ghetto neighborhoods saw their youth forming gangs. African Americans, Asians and Hispanics made up the majority of street gangs that sociologists would research but the majority of all communities were experiencing street gangs in some degree. During the early 1940′s, Mexican gangs formed along the west coast of the United States. As the late 1940′s and 50′s came along, gangs like the Latin Kings and Vice Lords were formed in Chicago, Illinois.

With civil strife and disenchantment abound during the 1960′s, African American street gangs formed in large urban cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York. New York street gangs formed under names like the Savage Skulls, La Familia and Savage Nomads. Another New York Street gang during this time known as the Rampers has recently realized the infamy of one its members who is contemporarily known as Sammy “the Bull” Gravano. By the late 1960′s and early 1970′s, Crips gangs in Los Angeles were so violent and entrenched in ghetto neighborhoods that rival Bloods gangs formed to challenge the strength of the Crips. Meanwhile, Chicago experienced the creation of the Black Gangsters, Devil’s Disciples and Black P Stone Rangers, to name a few. The late 1970′s and early 1980′s paved the way for creation of national gang alliances, expansion of national drug networks and the glorification of gangsters with movies like Colors and Scarface.

By the late 1980′s and early 1990′s, drug networks were in full swing. Drug importation from Southeast Asia and Colombia were at its peak. The United States becomes known as the number one drug consumer in the world. Street gangs develop into drug gangs with businesslike operations. Violence becomes standard operating procedure for these gangs. During this time, gangs are spreading like wildfire. Super Gangs, like the Latin Kings, Bloods, Crips and Gangster Disciples have spread their influence across America. Major cities were suffering from the violence connected to these gangs.

During the mid 1990′s, crime rates begin to plummet across the nation. Despite the decrease in crime, street gangs were forming at a high rate. Each year, the number of gangs and gang members reported in surveys increases. Major cities across the United States begin the develop strategies to combat gangs within their boundaries. Ironically, statistics show the suburban gang situation to have the greatest increase. By the late 1990′s, Super Gangs (large, multi cultural/multi-state street gangs) become well entrenched in many American communities despite the steady falling crime rate. Law Enforcement efforts are now targeting gangs across the country and achieving great results. Today, in the year 2000, street gangs are estimated to show a membership of nearly one million members. Some experts feel that number will exceed one million by the year 2001. Now, gangs can relate to their own glorification in the many gangster rap music and videos flooding the media. This has given them fame rather than infamy. It is apparent in today’s clothing and language of our youth how much gangs have influenced our culture. Emulation of the old gangsters, their names, colloquialisms and their practices are being acted out in the streets of our cities and towns. Gang members are referring to themselves as made men and John Gotti or Al Capone. Today’s gangsters are studying the ways of past gangsters and readying themselves for the new millennium.

Gangs Of New York History Vs. Gangs Movies of America

Who Were the Real Gangs of New York? The film Gangs of New York with Leonardo di Caprio and Daniel Day Lewis was based largely on fiction, but had some truth to it.

The movie begins in New York, in 1843, with a gang fight. Bill “the butcher” Cutting’s gang of “nativists” have challenged the “dead rabbits” (a gang of mostly Irish immigrants) to a fight to settle once and for all who is the most powerful gang in the area. After an intense battle the “nativists” win by killing the leader of the “dead rabbits”, also Amsterdam’s (the main character’s) father.

Amsterdam is then led into an orphanage where he grows to be a man, all while Bill Cutting runs the Five Points, and most of New York. The Five Points is a district of New York City and obviously the most corrupt. Crime is all to common, and sickness runs rampant in the area.

Although very underdeveloped, Amsterdam has sworn to revenge his father’s death and kill Bill “the Butcher.” When Amsterdam leaves he immediately sets his plan in motion.

He begins by getting on Cutting’s good side, and eventually becoming somewhat of an apprentice to the crime lord. During this time Amsterdam learns the ways of corruption. To keep above the law Bill Cutting becomes partners with William Tweed, arguably the most corrupt politician of all time. Bill gives Tweed the Irish immigrant vote, and Boss Tweed keeps Cutting “high and dry.”

Two subplots develop in the movie also.

First, a love story, between Amsterdam and Jenny Everdeane. A pickpocket by trade Jenny first steals Amsterdam’s necklace. Because the necklace has much sentimental value, he tracks her down and gets it back, he also gets the girl.
Second, the Draft Riots of 1863. The riots began because of the draft, instated because of the Civil War. The public was furious that you could buy your way out for 300 dollars. Also because of the corruption surrounding the draft. It was easy to get sucked into the draft if you were poor or underprivileged and it was easy to get out of the draft if you were wealthy (you could buy your way out for 300 dollars.) In the end Amsterdam reinvents the “dead rabbits” and schedules a…

Gangs of New York Movie Based on the novel by Herbert Asbury and Luc Sante, Gangs Of New York (2001) is set (oddly enough) in New York City, 1840-1863. A young man named Amsterdam (Leonardo DiCaprio) seeks vengeance against Bill ‘The Butcher’ Poole (Daniel Day Lewis), the man who killed his father. Though he secures the help of pickpocket Jenny Everdeane, the task at hand may be more dangerous than Amsterdam ever imagined when he realizes that his father was murdered as a result of gang warfare between the powerful Manhattan Irish and Italian gangs. Amid the crooked cops and corrupt politicians of the Tammany Hall era, political enforcer Bill Poole stands out as only one scoundrel in the crime-plagued Five Points section of lower Manhattan in the early 1860s.

Gangs of New York, the 2003 film starring Daniel Day Lewis, Leonardo Di Caprio, and Cameron Diaz was about a slum section of New York where five city streets converged, known as the “Five Points.” The time period examined began in the 1840’s and ended in the 1860’s when the American Civil War broke out. What were the Five Points really like at that time? How accurate was the film’s portrayal?
