Most of its members are of Lahu, Thai, Mien, Hmong, or Lao ethnicity. They are known for wearing the colors blue and black, and are often wearing Chuck Taylor's sneakers.
The gang was formed in the early 90's by the Southeast Asian youths, that had lived in the WESTSIDE of Bakersfield, California. In the early days, they were frequently harassed by members of other Mexican gangs.Bun now the "TROOPS" run all of Visalia. The gang has expanded as far north as Seattle, Washington and became heavily populated in areas like Merced, California.
They are also affiliated with the Crips gang and identify themselves with the number 15 (alternatives include: X5 and XV), because the letter O means "Oriental" and is the fifteenth letter of the alphabet. They also have been known to dot their hands with 5 dots.
