Hey criminal lover99x.
A validated gang member is one who has claimed his "set" when arrested, has the tattoo's and/or brandings of the gang, wears the colors of the gang and associates with other gang members. You have to remember, we are not talking about the smartest segment of the population. They like to brag and claim their gang because they think it makes them bad.
If my search is correct, he has been arrested 5 times for drugs, drug paraphernalia and resisting police.
