The Brooklyn Decepticons (A Real Life Street Gang)
Posted 22 August 2009 - 12:27 PM
The cats who rob them on the trains of Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan and part of Queens were a gang we might find close to our hearts. They were called the Decepticons aka "The Decepts" for short. They started in the East NY section of Brooklyn and spread out. By 1989, they had about 60-100 members and their primary function was to terrorize high schools and rob people on the trains. Their leader was cat who named himself Megatron but it was started by his friend Rumble who had a problem with some cats from Brooklyn Tech, a high school near Downtown Brooklyn. Him and his friend who called himself Megatron, and few other future Decepts waiting for these cats to come up from the train station and Rumble yelled "DECEPTICONS, ATTACK!!" and everyone including Megatron was like... WTF?
After they beat their targets up, they went back to their Brooklyn headquarters and dissected the Transformers cartoon to find nicknames of their own. There was Headstrong (the self proclaim Whaticon. You know like, what you lookin at son?) the rapper Lord Vital (a Constructicon) Rumble as fore mentioned and Cyclonis. There was even a female sub-team called the Deceptinettes who some say were as ruthless or even more so than the Decepticons. Megatron led them until he was shot in the back of the head in a failed robbery attempted and was in a coma for years until he died in 2001. Cyclonis and Headstrong, Megatron's two brothers now leads them (yea i know irony) and they are trying to lead them into a more positive light. They have start several anti-gang youth programs and help youth centers in Brooklyn to discourage kids from following the path they once took.
But they could and would still probably hug yo ass up if you try them. They have several rappers who claim Decept like Sean Price and Rockness Monster aka Heltah Skeltah. They even have a mixtape out.

Fascinated in that "Decepticons are cool, so how does white boy here make them seem so uncool?" way.

I've heard of the gang before, but not this movie you're talking about.
