--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BY WENDELL VIGILIA & Gil C. Cabacungan Jr

MANILA, Philippines -- A bill has been filed by two congressmen outlawing all street gangs and fraternities with their big bosses and members facing jail time between 15 and 30 years or life imprisonment.


THE House has approved on final reading a measure which seeks to deter the proliferation of street gangs through a set of stiff penalties against members, recruiters and anyone who commits gang-related crimes.


House Bill 5827 or the "Criminal Street Gang Deterrence and Punishment Act of 2009" authored by Rep. Rufus Rodriguez (PMP, Cagayan de Oro) & Rodolfo W. Antonino of Nueva Ecija define criminal gangs as a "formal or in formal group, club, organization or association of three or more members who, alone or any combination thereof, acts(s) or agree(s) to act in concert in order to commit two or more predicate gang crimes."

"Predicate gang crime," it said, is "any threat or act or attempted act or threat which is punishable under the revised Penal Code and other special penal laws and punishable by imprisonment of more than one year."

The bill said "predicate gang crimes" are murder, attempted murder, gambling, kidnapping, robbery, extortion, arson, obstruction of justice, burglary, sexual assault, and carjacking.

Also considered gang crimes are tampering with or retaliating against a witness, victim or informant, and manufacturing, importing, distributing and possessing with intent to distribute, or otherwise dealing in controlled substance(s) or chemicals; or other similar offenses."

The measure provides the penalty of imprisonment of not more than 10 years for people who will "recruit, solicit, induce, employ, command or cause another individual to gain entrance to, remain a member of or increase his/her position in a criminal street gang or conspire to do so with the intent that the said individual shall participate in any offense described by this Act."

It proposes a 15-year imprisonment for persons who will "employ, use, command, coerce, counsel, persuade, induce or entice any individual to commit, cause to commit or facilitate the commission of a 2 predicate gang crime in furtherance of or in aid of the activities of a criminal street gang."

In case the individual induced is a minor, the recruiter will face imprisonment of not less than 10 years but not more than 15 years and a fine set by the court.

The bill provides a stiffer 20-year imprisonment for any person who shall" commit, conspire or attempt to commit two or more predicate gang crimes in furtherance of or in aid of the activities of a criminal street gang."

However, a person who at the time of the offense occupied a position of organizer, leader, supervisor, manager or any other position of management or supervision in the criminal street gang involved in such violation shall be imprisoned for not less than 30 years or for life.

The bill also provides that any person who, in furtherance or in aid of a criminal street gang, commits a crime of violence against any individual, or conspires or attempts to do so, shall be punished in addition and consecutive to the punishment provided for any other violation as follows:

• Life imprisonment for murder, kidnapping for ransom.

• 10 years for sexual assault

• Five years for maiming; assault with a dangerous weapon or assault resulting in serious bodily injury; attempting or conspiring to commit murder, kidnapping; and, attempting or conspiring to commit a crime involving assault with a dangerous weapon or assault resulting in serious bodily injury,

Rodriguez, in the bill, said the crime situation "has reached an alarming level despite enforcement of supposedly stricter law enforcement measures."

He said the police have identified "hot spots" in Metro Manila, or places where gangs often carry out criminal activities.

Fraternity

Fraternity

A fraternity (Latin frater : "brother") is a brotherhood, though the term usually connotes a distinct or formal organization. The only true distinction between a fraternity and any other form of social organization is the implication that the members freely associate as equals for a mutually beneficial purpose, rather than because of a religious, governmental, commercial, or familial bond, although there are fraternities dedicated to each of these topics.

In many instances fraternities are limited to male membership but this is not always the case, and there are mixed male and female, and even wholly female, fraternities. For example, for general fraternities; Grande Loge Mixte de France, Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons, Grande Lodge Feminine de France, Order of the Eastern Star.

Fraternities can be organized for many purposes, including university education, work skills, ethics, ethnicity, religion, politics, charity, chivalry, other standards of personal conduct, asceticism, service, performing arts, family command of territory, and even crime. There is almost always an explicit goal of mutual support, and while there have been fraternal orders for the well-off there have also been many fraternities for those in the lower ranks of society, especially for national or religious minorities. Trade unions also grew out of fraternities such as the Knights of Labor.

The ability to organize freely, apart from the institutions of government and religion, was a fundamental part of the establishment of the modern world. In Living the Enlightenment, Margaret C. Jacobs showed the development of Jurgen Habermas' 'public space' in 17th century Netherlands was closely related to the establishment of lodges of Freemasons.


History
There are known fraternal organizations which existed as far back as ancient Greece and Rome and analogous institutions in the late medieval period called confraternities, which were lay organizations allied to the Catholic Church.

The development of Freemasonry in the early 1700s became a watershed moment in fraternal organization, and there have been hundreds of varieties of Freemasonry, and thousands of closely parallel organizations since then. Virtually all fraternal organizations today bear some debt to the models of organization first worked out in Masonic lodges.

The development was especially dynamic in the United States, where the freedom to associate outside governmental regulation is expressly sanctioned in law. There have been hundreds of fraternal organizations in the United States, and at the turn of the last century the number of memberships was equal to the number of adult males, although, because of multiple memberships, probably only 50% of adult males belonged to any organizations. In 1944 Arthur M. Schlesinger coined the phrase "a nation of joiners" to refer to the phenomenon. Alexis de Tocqueville also referred to the American reliance on private organization in the 1830s in Democracy in America.

There are many attributes that fraternities may or may not have, depending on their structure and purpose. Fraternities can have differing degrees of secrecy, some form of initiation or ceremony marking admission, formal codes of behavior, disciplinary procedures, very differing amounts of real property and assets.


College and university fraternities
Main article: Fraternities and sororities
Fraternities have a long history in colleges and universities, and form a major subsection of the whole range of fraternities. In Europe, students are organized in nations and corporations since the beginnings of the modern university in the late medieval period, but the situation can differ greatly by country.

In the United States, fraternities in colleges date to the 1820s, but did not fully assume an established pattern until the 1840s. They were strongly influenced by the patterns set by Freemasonry. The main difference between the older European organizations and the American organizations is that the American student societies virtually always include initiations, the formal use of symbolism, and the lodge-based organizational structure (chapters) derived from usages in Freemasonry

Tau Gamma Phi (ΤΓΦ) also known as the Triskelions' Grand Fraternity, is a fraternity established in the Philippines. Its members call themselves Triskelions. Their aim is to hopefully see a Fraternity System devoid of fraternity violence, and to earnestly propagate their fraternity's principles as their way of life. Based on these quests, the Triskelions, categorised their formal group as a 'protest fraternity'.

The Tau Gamma Phi Fraternity is now one of the largest fraternities in the Philippines. It has about 700 thousand registered members. Further, the fraternity, have chapters in colleges and universities around the country. The Triskelion Alumni Organization (T.A.O.) is the umbrella organisation for all its alumni members. The TAO have established closely-knit enclaves in the United States of America, Europe and other continents around the world.



Founding
The Tau Gamma Phi was founded at the Diliman Campus of the University of the Philippines on October 4, 1968.

The second chapter of Triskelions was founded at the Philippine Maritime Institute on August 3, 1969. In the next few years many other chapters were also be founded in other colleges and universities in the Philippines.


Martial Law
Martial Law was declared on September 21, 1972 by the late dictator President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Many of the cause-oriented groups critical to the regime, fraternities included became targets of military harassment. Believing that these groups posed a threat to the order and stability of the Marcos administration. Ostensibly due to 'leftist' leanings, the Tau Gamma Phi Fraternity's office was raided under an Arrest-Search and Seizure signed then Secretary of Defense Juan Ponce Enrile.

Struggling from the effects of Martial Law which suspended all fraternal and organizational activity within the collegiate levels. Bro. Ramoncito “Monching" Ocampo, who was the Secretary-General of the Fraternity during that time, decided to tap the younger generations in the High School sector. This gave birth to the Junior Tau Gamma Phi founded at San Beda College - High School in 1975 where Bro. Boyet Gorospe was one of the founders.

Filipino Gangs are present in the Philippine Islands and Internationally, most of these are located in the United States of America (California primarily). There is a very large number of Filipino street gangs in the Philippines and United States, Organised crime is also known to exist between a number of gangs.

About

A number of gangs are known to deal in illegal narcotics, some known criminal activities include home invasion, kidnapping and torture, extortion, arson, grand theft auto, robberies, sale of illegal narcotics, battery assault, shootings and numerous known & unknown homicides. Some gangs are so largely spread out among the island nation, that it is hard to keep track of the various branch's, this is evident in one of the largest and most infamous gangs among the Philippine Islands, known as the "SSC" gang also known as the "Sigue-Sigue Comando".
Filipino gangs are also known to be located in parts of Europe and Asia, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and primarily in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Apart from a very large number of local street gangs, there are a number of organized gangs among the Philippines.

True Brown Style 13

True Brown Style 13 "Vera Indio Istilo at Trese" (TBS 13) is one of The most famous & largest street gangs in the Philippines because of its crime related activities throughout the country. Murder, homicide, illegal drug trade, and home invasions is their primary criminal activities. The TBS 13 gang originated from San Diego, California, USA. Filipina-mexicanas deportees brought the gangs name and formed a clique in the Philippines. The clique which started in the Philippines was exclusively for females. But as the gang grew, the former female members accepted male members to join the gang, and those members made the gang infamous in the Philippines. True Brown Style 13 is the most popular Gang in the Philippines. Their colors are Red,Blue & Black their Sets are either Blood or Crip. Other True Brown Style 13 Hoods are connected with Bloods & Crips in the USA.

Filipino Mafia

The Kuratong Baleleng was an organized crime syndicate that once was an anti-communist vigilante group. They were known nationwide due to their end in an alleged shootout with the Police on May 1995 in Quezon City.

For most Filipinos, the Kuratong Baleleng is that notorious group of bank robbers that met a bloody end in a supposed shootout with the police one May morning in 1995 in Quezon City. But down in Ozamiz City, in northwestern Mindanao, Kuratong is said to be well-loved — and well-connected, even if no one denies that it is a criminal syndicate.

Armed with assorted type of high powered firearms and operates in the cities of Ozamis,Cagayan De Oro, Pagadian and Dipolog, and other neighboring cities and municipalities in Mindanao (in southern Philippines), Cebu in Visayas (in Central Philippines), and Metro Manila in Luzon (in northern Philippines).

"They have no qualms in killing perceived enemies," says a local journalist who asked not to be named. "They are untouchables." This perception is fueled by the fact that authorities refuse to even investigate criminal activities allegedly perpetrated by the group. The gang also has business ties with other ASIAN gangs such as Japanese YAKUZA and The Chinese Triads and the Russian Mafia. The Kuratong baleleng is also known for supplying rebels such as the NPA and Abu sayyaf groups.It was also rumored that the organization has gone International, and not online in the Philippines but, also some neighboring parts of the nation such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, singapore and even Saudi Arabia and Middle east.
