Rocky Lee Glover founder of 18th Street

Unread post by alexalonso » December 18th, 2012, 2:50 pm

Rocky Lee Glover is the guy who created 18th Street back in the mid 1960s. He was born in 1950, broke away from Clanton because of several reasons, one being he wasnot Mexican-American, and Clanton 18 was not fully accepted by other Clantoneros.

I wonder if he was a full fledged Mexican-American if Clanton 14 would have rejected Clanton 18?

But Rocky ended up giving guns to another 18th Street member then drove to Budlong and 27th Street and killed a Harpys member in 1980 and he went to prison for murder. Today he is 62 years old and still in prison for the murder.

Rocky wasn't the shooter, he was just there, but the shooter and he both got busted for the murder. Not sure if he started war with the Harpys, but since he was the founder of 18th street, he was probably part of everything that occurred during the 1970s. He did live in the area, I think near Arapohoe Street, not sure what the first click was.

I will try to get a pic of him. Being that he is 62, and he is not part of the prison politics, I think he keeps it low profile. He is in Solano Prison.

I dont think he was even half Mexican. That's one of the reasons why Clanton 18 didnt last, because he was not Mexican, and that's why 18th Street was open to other races join then they started.

you guys have to think outside the box

not every Mexican's name has to end with "ez" ... martinez, gomez, gutierrez, rodriguez, sanchez, perez ect ect

the richest man in the world is a straight Mexican (no, its not Chapo Guzman :P, he's up there tho! )

his name is Carlos Slim.

believe it or not, there are many mexicans with non traditional hispanic sounding names who'se families tree is deeply rooted in Mexico

Mangler - post a pic of Rocky Glover and we'll look at his features, wether there Somoan ( i doubt it ) or Mexican

proof is the pudding ...or should I say the flan :lol: haha

maybe he was mixed

but most likely he was half Mexican or had a fascination with Mexican gangs that he started his own -
