There are a million bajillion gangs all over the place and thrice as many cool gang nicknames for every punk or badass who joins up. People start to run out of ideas; they can’t all be called Big Dog or Ice. Here are 3 ridiculous gang member nicknames that are actually real and comically held by vicious murderers.
Mom – Maurice Boucher of Hell’s Angels
Murderer and drug trafficker, Boucher helped run the Montreal chapter of the Hell’s Angels for almost ten years before getting arrested for ordering the execution of two prison guards. He was convicted and is currently serving two life sentences.
Golf Bag – Sam Hunt, Capone’s Man
Sam Hunt carried his gun around in a golf bag, earning him this silly and unthreatening name.
Taco – Elliott Castenada of the United Nations Gang
The gang’s name is just as dumb as his nickname. Taco was recently shot down while eating at a restaurant in Mexico. His murder is part of a string of gang-related violent crimes — 21 people have been killed in just a week. A man with a machine gun entered the restaurant and opened fire with a machine gun, killing Taco instantly. He’s on the left in this photo.
