welcome the streetgangs.com, SGTV we are at Vromons bookstore in Pasadena, California, Chris Blatchford’s book signing on his new book called “The
Black Hand” which is a book about the Mexican Mafia through an extensive number of interviews with “Boxer” Enriquez he was able to write this book, only the second ever published about the Mexican Mafia, we’re going to see if we can get an interview with him to find out what it was like, his journey publishing this book [SG intro] A couple of undercover LAPD officers actually video tape a meeting where more than a 1,00 gang members showed up many of them rivals call the whole gether full stop wanna
few against people their own race, la raza the Mafia wanted all of the gangsters working just for them, a well armed army of 60,000 people. AA: In the very beginning how open was he to talking to you about this project of yours? stemmed from one I did a story about him
I think was like 95 which I’d mention him probably three or
four times in other stories had a call Monday from his mother was
furious with me was making her son look like this
horrible gangster all the time she said if you would write him a letter
you would find that he’s really isn’t it talking to use about not
getting into the games nude pic in other way life so I wrote in
this long two-page letter the canyon last thing I really needed
was some in a mafia soldier’s mother to be mad at me and he
wrote me back along three-page letter hand-written and
basically the Justin was you know i i don’t love the way your per train me but
yeah I know it’s just you know your job I have no animosity
towards you keep the lines of communication open so
we did I always send him Christmas Carol letter and he always
send me one back in couple times i send pictures because he was not allowed in solitary confinement have pictures in
the cell his family lives family had seen him in years so I send some pictures list of videotaping
Center on one occasion and a then when he
dropped out he just he told the his handlers at the Pelican
Bay wanted to do a book that he wanted me to
do it because you know I’d written about for years and
now than one of my head the you know this Catholic how was sir
reaching out in his I got to know him over 100 hours or more higher I realized
that he was looking for a way out even early on i think im really made a a
huge mistake although he did relish to end his mob
reputation there’s no question that but he was an intelligent guy and I
think that he had a lotta regrets about the things she’s done and I think
he he wants something on the record you
know that other people can read to see really where this life leads in
it it doesn’t lead to a good place your love those hills that generation
your mom knows with a the box when he finally drop past several years ago he told
investigators that he personal as many as September he was doing the in life cell to them to people on the streets Los Angeles your lease and to other white inside here broad daylight for who shares would initially prompted his
fall out with the Mexican Mafia in the first place well you know I think
it’s a hard question to answer in like 20-30 seconds but I think that
his support base I think with the when the rico trials and his mentors
what a way to federal prison for life said they were taken off the street and in
other friends that he knew in the Mafia were either you know getting killed or
going to prison for life in prisons outside California he really
thought that his power base was weakening when his old friends who
he had been in business with at Pelican Bay was trying to kill him
and he was trying to kill him and just in as I said in the talk today its there were a lot of things that just
made him what he called ma but we re on I think
it’s almost somebody has to question today about post-traumatic stress syndrome and I
think I think gangsters dude go through that in a they live a life
without looking over their shoulder all the time see blood stress and they do get you’d be surprised numbers
letters that I get from prison guys like down for the rest of their
life that are in their forties in realized that they had made a
terrible terrible mistake that the way they lived in its this book is really about you
know more than anything else it’s not about bashing the Mafia as much as is to this is a plea to other
people young kids don’t get involved in this way life you know may seem cool you may be getting Laden
10 bucks in your pocket from Ceylon dope but the hell when
you’re forty in your city in Pelican Bay you got
nothing else but blank walls look at till the day you die in it’s not a good choice I have the
number stored re slide no stories /a rule her own great mom it more than one occasion you a series of the best you will read
about here we’ll see how the two of us here course for one correspondence middle last a whole day a lot of people understand him or suspended games are
somehow aligned with the Mexican Mafia but boxer was not just any ordinary mexican mafia guy he was high ranking
person can you speak a little bit about his position well I think you know when he said you
like you really earn your way up in the Mafia through the mud bloody should he showed
in prison streets that really he was a cool
cold-blooded killer and had brought him up into the what
they call the upper echelon the Mafia he was you know cast in
communication with the guys we would call the heavy hitters and he was one here’s
it’s interesting to the first interview I ever did you know much more
than a decade ago with a coupla up with a mafia associate
in a Mexican Mafia member the agreed to talk to me about anything
I wanted to talk about except one thing they would not talk
about boxer we kiss they were have freedom he was
that fear even mom party two guys who were both
killers in would speak about a lot people wondering
if you had threats and I guess to a lot of people surprise
that hasn’t really been significant issue with happen with writing this book nor really hasn’t you
know I mean no one calls it had from to former of you guys and they both like the book thought it was very
truthful those very powerful my those were both Kaiser market drop consequat testified cases they’re both
out in the street now after serving time and yeah they had no
complaints about they thought it was the truth and I
really haven’t had any overt threats from for anybody 70 had
other threats in the past from other criminal organizations and in stories
about but in connection with this book earlier and
I hope I don’t get any I say you know if I say in the prologue
the book I dress mexican mafia members in a sated now this is about bashing of your but
it’s not like you know I I asked them do they want their sons
involved in this I think people can lead a better life
this I think most them be Marty guys the honest ones lockdown Pelican Bay florence colorado for the
rest of their life don’t want this this think you ever read
will recognize how powerful Mexican Mafia is and they’ve been around for
forty years but there’s only been to publish books
on this and have to my surprise or why isn’t
there more work more research into this organization when you see doesn’t have books on other types of
criminal organizations I’m not I I think people been afraid to ride
frankly and I think now that a few have been written
I think you can see more I think a my editor told me that he
thought this book did well it would probably opened floodgates to a
lot a story is not just about the Mexican Mafia about modern-day gangsters that better
prevalent across United States how often is it that a Mexican Mafia at
this high status whether its 150th them out there actually and up debriefing and turning
state’s evidence lucky more debrief that turned state’s
evidence take that you know you need ongoing trials to be a witness their
heads three big trials here nineties even rene
when he keep in finally dropped out I don’t think there
was initial interest because they already down about you guys you know so the
timing has to be right and I think love these guys you know even when they drop on mafia
they don’t wanna testified and Bill debrief tell what they know you
know they’ve got this Cody not to be a rat and it’s hard for them
after you thirty years living hell certain testify against
somebody in be around that’s like to them in with a
group that’s the worst thing you can be has boxer ever testified in the case he
has testified in one criminal case and he’s gonna testify another those are
the only two congratulations on this book and what’s
the next project for you on the horizon her I think we’ll just
have to wait and see thank you very much thank you here

  7. Russian mob dont play. Try telling one of them who to pay, or who to purchase their dope from. See what happens. These lil thugs running around thinking their gangsters all they do is draw attention to themselves, and snitch on each other. Anyone can kill, buts its the ones with brains, and structure that last. Mexican mafia, Crips, exct. They will pretty much let any douche bag thug join their gang, and learn their secrets. Their just a bunch of idiots running around throwing their dumbass gang signs with their hands. 90% of them dont get no real money. To a real gangster those thug gangs are a joke, a bunch of fools. You really think the Russian mob would ever deal with, or let in the majority of these fools that the Mex mafia, or Crips let in.

  19. He still Alive. February 20 2015 10:17pm Gov. Jerry Brown denies parole for Rene "Boxer" Enriquez, convicted killer and ex-member of Mexican Mafia

    Gov. Jerry Brown rejected parole late Friday for a former Mexican Mafia killer who left the prison gang and has spent more than a decade cooperating with authorities and speaking at law enforcement conferences.

  20. My great great grandfather was one of the leaders of the black hand, my last name is romeo which is well known in Youngstown Ohio

  21. Be that as it may, I think it's odd they denied him parole vs Sammy the bull gravano, there is still racism, I had dinner in Florida with the grandson of Joe Bananas, he said "the Life ain't worth it"

  22. The blue car that go by in the movie the "Godfather "outside the limousine meeting is a symbol of they become Big ,the same blue car used in "Boulevard Nights"the meaning all evolved from street gangs, the producers put that blue lowrider car in there on purpose, many dummies don't see the hidden messages.

  26. The blackhand actually originated from the italians. In 1907 Rocco Racca from Hillsville, P.A and a few of his paisans had a little society called the blackhand and they ran alot of things in that area. And theres also a book on this

  27. FUCK THIS PIECE OF SHIT CHILD RAPIST RAT BITCH FUCK HIM HE CAN BURN IN HELL NO GOOD RAT LIVING IN A PC YARD SCARED TO GO THE MAIN LINE

  28. Boxer was a avid reader of psychology, war, and strategy. He's clearly someone gifted with a high intellect. The sad part, Boxer, was a waste of talent.

  30. At least give props to The Mexican mafia on one thing that no other gang or gang leader did the leaders of the Mafia did make whatever gangs in cali that they associated with the Mafia did make them stop doing drive bys..so I gotta give them props on that.

  31. one of my favorite books I've read.i just hope they make a movie about his life in the mob.would be so intristed to see it.and see how graphic and scary it was for him being in the mob.

  32. Say NO to Drugs, Gangs and Crime. You ONLY have ONE Life; Live it Creatively, Passionately and Happily.

  33. Fun fact.
    This guy will NEVER get out, no matter how much intel he gives up.
    Why?
    Because he would have to register as a sex offender and his residence address would be made public.
    He would probably be killed.
    More importantly, innocent civilians might get harmed and/or killed in the process.
