Who are LA's most dangerous gang along with MS13. Other gangs beat up their friends - the Bounty Hunters KILL their friends. (Look up my "Worried about the wrong gangs?" thread). Never mind people they don't know. They're basically organized psychopaths, more so than any other gang in L.A.
I would say L.A.'s most dangerous gangs are:

Florencia 13
18th Street
MS13
Grape Street
Bounty Hunters
Avenue Gang

I'm no gang expert, just my opinion from what I read.

I recently watched an ep of that cable show "gangland'. The eps are hour long documentary on American gangs (white, black, hispanic, asian, Aryan, mafia).

Apparently MS13 is considered the most dangerous gang now... it controls the 18th street gang and others.

Oh!! bounty hunters kill there friends like this is the only hood to do that!! thats some weak stuff! I never killed another bounty hunter ( not to say I didnt want to...LOL) but whenever you have poverty with ignorance and a lack of the knowledge of self, then stuff like this happens!! I took white boys into my hood, they were cool, eating greens and cornbread!! stop scaring people!!

MS13 and 18th street "KILL their friends" also. Watch 'gangland'. Scary, sad stuff.

I worked for the juvenile probation dept & visited families in Nickerson Gardens & many other projects & never encountered a problem as an anglo. In-fact I was often helped out to find apartments by the citizens. Mostly women social workers work at night providing therapy & casework to the citizens in our barrios all over LA. When was the last time anyone heard of social workers being killed or raped in a project?

There are a lot of robberies in these neighborhoods because most folks are poor. Gangs are the result of no jobs or education.
Thanks for the info. It seems to be important to many whites (particularly on this website) to imagine that every person of color is gunning for them.

When was the last time an outsider was shot in Ramona Gardens? Can't recall a time when LAPD shot a non-gang member there. Estrada Courts is far from being the worst projects in LA, but VNE and 8th St constantly go after each other. Best advice: if you have no business in the projects, don't go into them.

It's like driving through...without having to drive through.
This is the best idea if anyone is interested for whatever reason.
I`ve driven through Watts/Compton with a couple of cops, not very ineresting at all!

Incidently:

If you go to the google street views you will notice something interesting.

The Imperial Courts project is missing. The Google street view car took a detour and did not venture in. Not that I can blame him.

That right there should be pretty good proof of how dangerous that area is. I personally would not go to Imperial Courts or even Watts.
