GTA san andreas Story

Welcome to San Andreas…

 

Grove Street Families are a diminishing gang in Los Santos, San Andreas. Everyday, their men get capped, the Ballas gain strength and Grove Street get weaker. Things have slowly gotten worse since Carl Johnson (Grove Street OG) left Los Santos for a new life in Liberty City five years ago. Sweet is Carl’s older brother, and heads up the Grove Street gang. Sweet blames Carl for the death of their younger brother Brian who was involved in an unfortunate accident all those years ago. Lack of weaponary, poor health because of drugs, a rapidly decreasing rate of respect and betrayal–have all led to Grove Street’s downfall. Grove Street OG’s Big Smoke and Ryder, are trying to setup a new drug business with the Loco Syndicate. The Loco Syndicate is run by Mike Toreno, a shady CIA agent. Jizzy B and T-Bone Mendez are also involved. Sweet refuses to take part, saying that it would damage the hood.

C.R.A.S.H
LSPD’s anti-gang unit

There is only one type of crime in Los Santos. Gang crime. It is upto Los Santos’ anti-gang unit (known as C.R.A.S.H) to end gangbanging and keep the city under control. The unit is led by Officer Frank Tenpenny and includes Officer Eddie Pulaski, and the unit’s newest recruit Jimmy Hernandez. Tenpenny and Pulaski are corrupt. The two cops believe that sometimes in order to get what you want, you have to work with the people you don’t like, doing things that aren’t exactly right. They pressurise Hernandez into killing Officer Ralph Pendelburry, who threatened to expose their methods.

Don Salvatore Leone

In Liberty City – Carl Johnson is working for Joey Leone, and meanwhile Johnny Sindacco visits the Gentlemen’s Club to offer Salvatore Leone stakes at a casino in Venturas. This involves Salvatore pledging $5,000,000 to the Sindacco’s. The two gangs cannot decide who should run the casino and so Ken Rosenberg (once working with the Forelli’s down in Vice) is put forward as a neutral party. Rosenberg is stuck in the middle of 3 mob families, and if one mob hits another, the opposition will eliminate Ken. Also in Venturas, Triads have purchased the Four Dragons Casino but the Sindacco’s are looking to sabotage it’s opening.

Balla OG’s decide that it’s time to finish off Grove Street. The plan is to cap Grove Street’s leader, Sweet. The hit is made, but instead, Beverly Johnson is killed, and Sweet survives. Sweet calls Carl to announce his mother’s death, and Carl begins a journey back to his home town in Los Santos. Carl is welcomed by Officer Tenpenny, who has bullied Carl since before his leave for Liberty City. Carl is escorted to Front Yard Ballas territory, and later thrown from a moving police car. Carl finds himself dragged back into the gang life that he apparently once tried to leave behind. Welcome to San Andreas…

San Andreas is set in the early 1990’s–a very important time in Los Angeles’ history. The story focuses on the famous LA riots and the related rampart scandal. This involved a corrupt police force known as C.R.A.S.H, terrorising Los Angeles. The rampart scandal was ignited by Officer Rafael Perez–perhaps the base of Officer Tenpenny’s character. “The Introduction” DVD is exclusively available with purchase of the San Andreas Official Soundtrack Double CD.
