The O’Farrell Park Banksters (OPB) also known as O’Farrel Park Bankster Bloods are an African-American/Black street gang located on the East Side in the neighborhood of South Encanto also known “O’Farrell” of Southeast San Diego, California. The O’Farrell Park Banksters neighborhood is around Skyline Drive, between 61st Street to 69th Street (O’Farrell Park Banksters 60’s).
A few of their cliques consist of the Farrell Park, 69th Street, Gangster Pimp Mafia, and Nigga’s Bangin and Elderly. The O’Farrell’s originated as a neutral gang with no affiliation with bloods or crips. Mitchy Slick (rapper) of Lincoln Park Bloods in an interview, he credited a member of the O’Farrell Park Banksters, Big Red, for the gangs in San Diego, aligning with bloods.
“Big Red from OPB (O’Farrell Park Banksters) went to YA and got into it with a LA Crip on the yard, who was one of their main Crips, and he beat that Crip down. At first everyone thought Big Red was a Blood, but he wasn’t, but everyone on that yard that took notice of what Big Red did and automatically said you are a Blood so that had a big impact on the Blood scene in San Diego.”
In 2010, three members of the O’Farrell Park Banksters and the Skyline Pirus, were accused of murdering a Mesa College student, Garrett Berki, who graduated from La Jolla High School. The three alleged gang members lured Berki into Paradise Hills, by posing as sellers of an $600 dollars laptop computer on Craigslist.

Garrett Berki were discovered by police officers, slumped behind the wheel of his car. In 2012, the trio were charged with first degree murder of Garrett Berki, who was 17 years old of the time of his death.
