BLACK CRIME GROUPS – From drug bosses like Nicky Barnes and “Supreme” McGriff to infamous street gangs such as the Bloods, the Crips, and the Gangster Disciples.
BIKERS – Just a bunch of dudes riding their motorcycles while occasionally running afoul of the law. Hells Angels, Mongols, Bandidos, and newly formed clubs in Europe.
YAKUZA – The Japanese Mafia is out in the open. Full body tattoos, chopped of fingers, you know a Yakuza member when you see one. They rule Japan like the Samurai in the old days.
TRIADS – The Chinese Mafia achieved its place among the most powerful groups when it began smuggling opium and heroin. With discipline and ancient traditions, they formed a secret society known as the Triads.
EUROPEAN CRIME GROUPS – Every country and city has its own powerful crime boss. From London to Amsterdam to Paris. Of course, the Russian and Italian Mafia groups also get involved.

The Bloods, Crips, Vice Lords and Gangster Disciples have spread across the country and established dominance in many neighborhoods. Even the Aryan Brotherhood and its offspring have carved out a piece of the lucrative pie.
