Ducarme Joseph, with reputed ties to the Bloods, is a 41-year-old "businessman" - owner of a clothing store on St. Jacques St. now riddled with bullet

Ducarme Joseph, with reputed ties to the Bloods, is a 41-year-old "businessman" - owner of a clothing store on St. Jacques St. now riddled with bullet holes.The street gangs are growing up, says Montreal police Inspector Charles Mailloux.
"The phenomenon has been evolving since the 1980s. Young people of 14 and 15 years old are now 40. So they're more structured and associated with organized crime. They still hire people to sell drugs on the street, but they're evolving."
Some fear the level of violence is evolving with them. Investigative journalist Julien Sher says when gangs like the Bloods in Montreal - also known as the Reds - take over from more established biker gangs and Mafia organizations, it can mean more unpredictable violence."We're looking at the next generation of gangsters," Sher said. "It's always dangerous to cry fire, but we have seen in Vancouver and Winnipeg that when less structured gangs get involved, there can be more violence because they can sometimes be more hot-headed and less disciplined. It may be harder for them to control their members."Maria Mourani, a Bloc MP who has written a book on Montreal's street gangs, says right now, all the groups are divided, including the Italian Mafia, and the street gangs that work with them."It's a very volatile environment," she said. But she believes someone will try to unite the "Italian clan" to take back control over territory, the street gangs and the "gangster-businessmen." "But we're not there yet."
