History of the FTT
As mentioned the FTT has been round since the 1940s, like most street gangs the gang was started due in response to being treated unfairly, by other gangs and law enforcement and the government.
Youth in the Fullerton neighbourhood would join together and form street gangs, these individuals would take care of others around the neighbourhood.
As the gang grew and got bigger, the FTT began to increasingly engage in criminal activities, which involved drugs, alcohol, and violence, behaviours associated with most other criminal gangs.

Fullerton although it has a higher crime rate, is a mainly peaceful town. FTT is the most prolific gangs in Orange County, there have been move criminal filings against the Fullerton Tokers gang members than any other gang. They are one of the largest gangs in the county. With approximately 350 gang members.
In the years 2008-2010 the FTT had 711 filings against the gang.
