The South Side (S/S) Compton Varrio 155 (or CV155) is a small Latin-American street gang located on the west side of Compton, California. This Sureños gang has been around for the past three decades and has become one of the most well known Hispanic gangs in Compton. Their territory stretches from Central Avenue in the West, Tajauta Avenue in the East, 154th Street in the North and 156 Street in the South. Most members of the Compton Varrio 155 live on 155th Street and the medium sized trailer park home on 156th Street. Members are known to attend Enterprise Middle School and Compton High School, starting rivalries with other street gangs far removed from their territory. Like many other Hispanic gangs, outside of prison, the CV155 have waged war with other Sureño gangs such as the Compton Varrio Tortilla Flats, Compton Varrio 70's, Compton Varrio Alondra 13 and the Compton Varrio Lokos 13. Among African-American gangs, rivals include the Original Block Piru 151, Campanella Park Pirus, West Side Piru, 145 Neighborhood Pirus, Cedar Block Piru, Tree Top Pirus, the Palmer Blocc Compton Crips and the Park Village Compton Crips. Other rivals include the Acacia Blocc Compton Crips, Spook Town Compton Crips, Farm Dog Compton Crips (a.k.a the A.T.F) and the Mona Park Compton Crips. The CV155 do not have any known allies outside of the Mexican Mafia and are usually hostile towards nearly all Sureños gangs on the streets. Their most fierce rivalries are with almost all Piru hoods, due to the on-going race-wars between African-Americans and Hispanics in South Central, Los Angeles [1].
