This gang has been around for a long time and every time it wants to recruit new members, it will carry out violent hazing activities. A number of students are determined to join because they will enjoy some exclusive ‘access’ at the school.

However, to join the gang new recruits must endure physical violence as proof of whether the prospective member is worthy of being part of GT. It is known that the perpetrators have been expelled from school since February 15. (un)
