A collection of 4 VHS tapes containing more than 21 hours of documentation about gangs stories in the US produced by www.streetgangs.com. Streetgangs.com is a web site that disseminates information about the history of street gang formation to understanding the scope of the current gang situation. This information is useful for parents, educators, and at-risk youth in understanding how the geography of gangs has had a major impact on the residents of Los Angeles and the surrounding communities.The VHS are a T-120 VHS, which means the cassette duration is of 2 hours. But thanks to a particular recording mode called Long Play (LP) and Extended Play/Special Long Play (EP/SLP) the duration of the cassette can be increased but this augmentation of duration will then decrease the quality of the image. Long play allows you to record much more information at the expense of quality. It accomplishes this by reducing the speed the tape is run through the VCR. As the tape speed decreases, the quality will also decrease. A VHS tape recorded at LP can hold roughly 4 hours of video. Extended play is similar to LP, but provides even more recording time multiplying the length of the tape of 3 times. EP was primarily used to document long, continuous events without the need to change video tapes every 2 hours. Tapes recorded at EP usually are the most problematic after years of storage, displaying a wide variety of tape damage symptoms including color loss, audio loss, frame skipping, and tracking issues.Each VHS is accompanied by the precise list giving details of what is present inside the video tape. The cost of each VHS was 25 dollars plus shipping.Gang tape Volume 1 has a running time of 5 hr, 5 minutes footage, it consists of a footage, interviews and other programming regarding Black gangs from 1996 to 1999 like for example “Tupac Shakur was shot, September 9, 1996 - 1 minute” or “Criminal Justice in the US, 1996 - 90 minutes”.Gang tape Volume 2 has a running time of 4hr, 35 minutes footage, it consists of a footage, interviews and other programming regarding Hispanic gangs from 1995 to 1999 like for example “Mexican mafia member Art Romo, 1998 - 5 minutes” or “A look into the Latin Kings of New York City, 1997 - 16 minutes”.Gang tape Volume 3 has a running time of 5hr, 58 minutes footage, it consists of a footage, interviews and other programming regarding gangs in Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Police Department including a footage of gangs and Rampart division of the LAPD from 1999 to 2000.
