The 1980s was a crazy time to live in, it brought in a whole new wave of hustlers and gangs. One of those gangs were the Oak Park Bloods, they would set up shop in Sacramento and become a dominant gang in the area for decades.
Sacramento Gangs started to become really active in Sacramento with the introduction of crack. The Oak Park Bloods moved up to Northern California because of this. Since the crack epidemic they have been a staple in Oak Park and are considered one of the oldest Blood Gangs in Sacramento.
Members of the gang are considered to be very violent and commit crimes including homicides and are considered by the Sacramento PD as a serious threat to the public.
