The Venice Shoreline Crips (VSLC) are the largest Crip gang inside Venice, a region on the West Side of Los Angeles, California. Their territory stretches from Sunset ave to the west and California ave, 7th ave. in the north, and 5th ave to the south. They call their turf “Ghost Town” and they fall under the “Deuce (2x)” card. The Venice Shoreline Crips, was started by Abbot Kinney in the late 1960s, and has dominated Venice for over two decades with their numbers ranging in the several hundreds. Local rival gangs often found themselves out numbered and had to call a “truce” with other nearby gangs, in order to compete with the Venice Shoreline Crips.
