I’ll be talking about Bahala Na Gang, a Filipino street gang that emerged immediately after World War 2 as hardened criminals were released back into society. They are the anything goes gang and like fighting, drinking, and killing competitors and police. I’ll talk about their early history, their expansion into America, and finish by talking about what has been going on with them the past few years as they have been strictly targeted by law enforcement and military in the Philippines.
