Re: Trinidad Iglesias from Florence 13

Trinidad "Trini" Iglesias was never recruited into the Mexican Mafia. He was a validated close associate of several Mexican Mafia members while at San Quentin in the 1970's.

Re: Top 10 Most Famous Aryan Brotherhood Members

Correction: Dopey Dan was killed in 1968, not 1970. Baby Alvarez was convicted in 1970.

Re: Top 10 Most Famous Aryan Brotherhood Members

On March 4, 1971, Yogi stabbed Officer Robert McCarthy through the tray slot at Soledad's old X-Wing facility, ramming a toothbrush through the officer's eye and mortally wounding him. I think one can guess CDCR personnel probably grieved very little at the demise of Yogi Pinell.

Re: Top 10 Most Famous Aryan Brotherhood Members

Unless someone has a name and incident to cite, there is only one Mexican Mafia member to die at the hands of a rival prison gang. His name is Rudy "Cheyenne" Cadena and he perished in Palm Hall in December 1972 at the hands of the Nuestra Familia. "Dopey Dan" was stabbed to death in Soledad in 1970...

Re: THE ORIGINAL 13 = MARAVILLA

One of the only reason why HMV was the one who led it to power or had a lot of members was because HMV was the one with the best hook up for product and connections.
