Mexican Mafia Founder
Who is Mexican Mafia Founder?
Mexican Mafia was formed in the 1950s and its founder is Luis Flores knows as “Huero Buff”.
Luis Flores was capable, intelligent, cruel, merciless and strong, both mentally and physically. This made him very dangerous. So much so that he founded one of the most powerful, and one of the cruelest prison gangs in the United States.
The rules in the street and in the prison are very simple, and the main rule is that the stronger survives and the weaker dies. In order to protect himself, and other Mexican prison inmates, Flores founded Mexican Mafia, also known as eMe.
The main goal of Mexican Mafia was to organize and unite Mexican prison inmates so that other members are protected from correction officers and other prison gangs. However, there was also another goal which was to gain power and make money.
In order to establish Mexican Mafia as a serious, feared and powerful prison gang Luis Flores recruited very violent members to the gang. These members had very simple assignment which was to terrorize everybody that opposes the Mexican Mafia and kill its enemies.
This tactic of the Mexican Mafia founder worked, and many Mexican prison inmates wanted to join the gang and were ready to die for it. This gave great power to Luis Flores, and he was able to control the black market activities in the prison which meant more power, respect and money for him and his gang.
Even though Mexican Mafia is a prison gang it is very well organized due to the Flores’s and Cadena’s establishment of the gang hierarchy, commandments and rules of conduct.
Mexican Mafia has well organized paramilitary structure which is similar to the Italian Mafia in the United States. This hierarchy includes, from the bottom-up, soldiers, sergeants, lieutenants, captains and generals.
The main policies of the Mexican Mafia are: there is no other way to leave Mexican Mafia but to be killed; prioritizing the gang over one’s family; a member will be punished or killed if he becomes an informant, shows disrespect of other members, act as a coward, or is involved in homosexual activities.
Today Mexican Mafia in involved in many criminal activities inside and outside the prison walls. This criminal organization is involved in drug trafficking, murder, contract killing, racketeering, weapons trafficking, conspiracy, gambling, etc.
All of these criminal activities and its highly organized system of functioning made Mexican Mafia one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the United States and beyond.
