An Oak Lawn resident called the police to complain that unknown offenders painted gang graffiti on his white vinyl fence, his motor home and on the village sidewalk in front of his home sometime on Thursday, September 6th.
Four assailants, with at least one in a dark hoodie, used orange spray paint to tag his white vinyl fence and motor home while writing “GDK” on the village sidewalk, before leaving a lock long trail of orange paint, according to surveillance video provided by the homeowner.
“GDK” is an acronym meaning ‘Gangster Disciples Killer’ and is generally used by the Black Disciples Gang that is a gang that is warring with the Gangster Disciples. The ‘K’ is added to indicate that they plan to kill the Gangster Disciples when they have the opportunity.
According to Chicago Gang History’s Website, the Black Disciples were founded in 1960.
The graffiti in this instance was in the area of Lynwood and the 5800 block. One of the four men drew a male appendage in the northbound lane of Menard Avenue, while a “G” was inscribed on a village tree on Lynwood. Another sidewalk was sprayed and a real estate sign, in front of a house, was also painted.
The four men continued their rampage toward Mayfield, stopping to paint the village’s “no parking” sign, marking a couple of trees and painting another male appendage on the cement apron of another home on Mayfield. Residents found a discarded spray paint can that was turned over to the police.
Nobody has been arrested for the criminal defacement of the private or public property.
