Description & Features+

On the morning of October 19, 2007, Greater Vancouver residents work to the news of the bloodiest mass murder in the area’s history. Six people, including two innocent bystanders, had been shot execution-style in a luxury apartment in the community of Surrey. News of the Surrey six hit the region as profoundly as the Shedden Massacre had Ontario. But unlike the Shedden Massacre, which pre-empted a gang war in Ontario, the murder of the Surrey six unleashed one in Greater Vancouver that is turning Vancouver streets into a killing ground. Gang violence is not new to the greater Vancouver. The city is host to several prominent gangs with ever-shifting membership and alliances that can be made in moments and destroyed in the time it takes to pull a trigger. Few people doubted who was behind the Surrey six massacre—the most notorious and high-profile gangsters in Vancouver, the Bacon Brothers, were known to react violently to anyone who crossed them. And the intended victims of the massacre in Surrey, the Lal Brothers and their associates in the Lal crew, had crossed them by leaving their gang – the Red Scorpions – and striking out on their own. But in Vancouver, putting yourself on the Bacon Brothers’ bad side is like swimming with sharks. You will almost certainly wind up dead. “The Notorious Bacon Brothers: Their Deadly Rise Inside Vancouver’s Gang Warfare” follows not just the rise of the Bacon Brothers, but the series of gangs they infiltrated and the catastrophic amount of violence that has plagued Vancouver streets. Brutal, inventive, adept at making and breaking allegiances, gangs across the country are now replicating the brothers’ ways and means of getting things done. With a Bacon brother dead and the two remaining brothers behind bars, the vacuum left is resulting in gang warfare among the Hells Angels, Red Scorpions, UN Gang, and Independent Soldiers, all engaged in an intensely violent struggle to control Vancouver’s incredibly lucrative drug trade.
