Gang members think someone who owes them money lives at our house. They are wrong and we told them so twice. Then they came back at night and threw a brick through our window. We immediately went to a hotel and have already signed a rental agreement elsewhere. However, I am scared to go pack up the house. Is that rational, and if so, what recourse do we have? [more inside]

The largest gang in NYC is The Riffs in the movie The Warriors.
Winchester calls Klinger a Riff in Season 7, Episode 1: Commander Pierce. Klinger is offended and informs/reminds Winchester that he (Klinger) is Lebanese.
Who are the Riffs or what is a Riff? (Aside from the largest gang in NYC and not Klinger.)

I am looking for an example of a drug bust for which the police uncovered a pattern of drug shipments not just uncovered one shipment. I am interested in looking at a pattern of drug transportation in which I can know approximately when drugs where delivered over a period of time. [more inside]

What is the company that makes the commercial where bikers enter a cafe and approach a table with a dad, his wife and daughter. The dad has just finished telling his girl something, to which, she has rolled her eyes. Then the bikers stop at the dad and the wife and daughter looked panicked. But they show the dad respect and he fist punches them back while recognizing and acknowledging them. The wife practically faints but the daughter suddenly has new-found respect for her seemingly geeky dad. And, is that commercial available for viewing online anywhere?

My friends and I are going to start a low down dirty east bay motorcycle gang (we just need bikes!). Where can we get sweet jackets and where can we get them embroidered with our gang name (headless skulls!) and how much should it cost? Bonus question: where do we find kaiser helmets?

This past weekend, my friend's boyfriend told me a crazy thing that happened to him that can't possibly be true. I believe that it may be based on a film/book/short story. Help me figure out whether he's lying. *Story inside is long but involves Japanese brothels!* [more inside]

Is there a term for the close-cropped hairstyle (similar to buzzcuts, I suppose) that a lot of gang members wear? It's not a ball fade, but something like that? I'm thinking of mostly Latino gangs.
