EMF — a history of the El Monte Flores

Ben Baeder compiled a brief look at El Monte Flores, a gang comprised of 400 members that has its origins in an neighborhood near a nursery.

Richard Rodriguez, who was kicked in the head by an El Monte police officer Wednesday after a high-speed pursuit is a member of the gang, officials said.
Gang experts said the gang has close ties to La Eme, the Mexican Mafia and was linked to the Maxon Road Massacre:

A member of the gang, Luis Maciel, orchestrated the murder of an El Monte family on Maxson Street in 1995, Valdemar said.
Gunmen recruited by Maciel killed five people, including a baby and 5-year-old girl. The murders were in retaliation for Anthony Moreno leaving the Mexican Mafia. Moreno was killed in the attack.
Maciel was sentenced to death.
“They’re everywhere and they’re in the Mexican Mafia,” Valdemar said.

    The story I heard was that the gang’s name originated from the first members who had the last name Flores which made up most of the members at the time. That was told to me by an O.G. member turned principle at the continuation school in El Monte. Which story is right?

  • Durrrr

    thank you for stating the obvious. a mexican gang is affiliated with the mexican mafia.

    whats next? are you going to tell us that Water is Wet and that the Sun is hot.

  • mike

    Do any of these termites die of old age or just O.D.s and drive-bys?

  • former gang member

    You know, gang bang lowlives live for the moment they could get themselves and their “hood” in the media.

    Great job geniuses, doing better recruiting than the army.

  • oh really??

    No sheett??? They live for this and whenever there is an enemy present they have to attack! I know this from personal experience being invovled in that gang as a youngster… but… they are very unorganized right now and need some order in that gang!!!

  • Lawman

    Dealt with these pussies many times, all talk until you lock them down. From past experience chasing some of these idiots I’m not surprised how this roach was driving.

  • el monte reeident

    So, let me get this straight, your just fighting and basically bickering and bitching on this? Rather than getting straight to the point about the actual gang violence in the city?

  • Long Time El Monte Resident

    Close your eyes. Imagine the man involved in the high speed chase was White. Do you still think he deserved to be treated the way he was. NO. I met this young man and he is a very respectful person. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.

  • Female EM resident

    Instead of worrying about the whens, whys and hows… worry about what to do to make our neighborhoods safer, not just from gangs, but also from corrupt police officers.

  • knowledge

    whats the point of gangs anyways, i hear and i see gangs killing each other everyday claiming their hood or the street of what they belong from.. perhaps they are good people and hard workers but why throw their life away, common seriously lets say i was from a gang name “furious” here in southern cali and my rivals where a gang called “extremo”. i find it so ridicolous and so childish and oviously dont have a brain for me to think with it cause if i kill one of the extremos members i get life in prison for this and protect the rest of them in prison in the name of southside, common who honeslty would be that brain dead you want to protect do it for your mom or dad or kids, true family not the ones who claim to be your homeboys which they never even get you a lawyer when your in a mess due to protecting a street….you want to make a big name for your gang go against southside first then the northside other than that you all are puppets and not only for the gang but for the state…a least cops are smart about what gang they join..

    Hello to all in the SGV, I was wondering about near Charlie Browns, The River Bed and how many holes are punched there filed with secrets or near the Narrows. There Lil Mario who was close to Alfaro. How they doing still in the pinta? Oh well remember the only secret ever kept is the one you never told.

  • Just another MONTERO

    To all of those real g’s !

    Growing up in the varrio when you are young , it means to have friends and be cool .
    In return you get to bang the hood , and show your tough . We think that we will always be remembered , yet we see with our own eyes the betrayal .Yet we roll on . We see wrong shit , do nothing about it . We addict ourselves to poison’s that block out any sense we might have , and who gives it to us , the homies’ . We go to jail and miss our mother’s and sibling’s , yet we hide it to show that we are down . Deep down inside we know its all pride . What kind of vato wants to be away from their familia , their wife ? Then when we come home , We see with our own eyes all the pain and suffering that our senseless gangbang’n has done , yet we coward to the thought of the homie’s knowing how you feel , and so you continue . You raise your kids in the madness , teaching them to throw up the same signs they taught you , remember , you had to learn as well ! And so it continues ……

    From the thoughts of an ex Florero that came to the realization that his family comes first , his real homies’ who will never leave him out in the cold !!!!

    The people who were there when no one else was .. yea u know what im talking about .

    The people who never tell , not out of some code of silence , yet out of love !!!

    Your familias’ , thats all you have , if you love them , dont give them the same suffering that we all came thru !!!!!

    MONTERO 4 LIFE !!!!!!!!

    P.s they laught at our raza and call us pendejos’ … come on lets show em their wrong homie’s !!!!!

  • EMF ‘er

    As far as I’m concern (due to experience in The EMF Gang)being in a gang is like everything else in Life…
    You have to stand up for something you believe in, for some people this for some people that but all in all we all have to fit in somewhere, we all have our own beliefs and standards in life… Tho I must admit that being in a gang is a dangerous career… but not much different than any other… It’s simply another way of life. Once again, very dangerous… but hey “If you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the mother fucken kitchen”. You have no bussines being there and you have no bussines criticizing either. People should really mind their own fucken bussines and stay out of other peoples lives. After all everybody (and I do mean everybody) lives their God given life the way they want to, the way they see fit, weather right or wrong… and who is anybody to say witch is right or witch is wrong… We all fuck up in life… we all make mistakes… So live and let live…
