Outlaw gangs go as far back in history as the beginning of man, with the word “thug” (Thugz) dating to 1200 A. when gangs in India were pillaging many of the country’s towns.
These gangs often had their own hand signs, rituals, symbols and slang, as they clustered together for means of force and protection.
Following his mother's death, Jett was fostered by Gina (Sonia Todd) and John Palmer (Shane Withington).
