Annals of Crime #47


Original Caption:

Chicago -- Four prisoners at the Cook County jail display markings worn by the Pachuco Terrorist gang. 17 prisoners at the jail were found to have similar tattoo and ink markings after more than 250 were examined. Only one of them actually admitted being a Pachuco. The gang has a secret code, and takes pride in narcotics addiction, beatings, rape and robbery. The dots surrounding the cross supposedly represent the number of arrests the individual has to his credit. (1954)
