I just saw an article on the BBC News website:


Three weeks after 17-year-old Henry Bolombi was killed, Louis Boduka - or Usher - was stabbed through the heart. In February, 16-year-old Iyke Nmezu was attacked and died in hospital. All three were reported to be members of a gang.
This BBC investigation has been told that there are two main gangs operating together in Edmonton: one is Dem Africans or the Green Gang and the other is its cadet force, the Grey Gang or Grey City.
And one of the ways they communicate is on the internet. In an examination of more than 125 social networking sites, we identified scores of gang members.
Video clips taken on mobile phones and posted on various sites include, for instance, a picture of young man stripped to the waist, wielding a knife. He slaps an eight inch blade into the palm of his hand, issuing threats: "You mark me, I'm gonna catch you...blood clot, that's what I'm saying...going straight through ya belly."
The names of the three murdered teenagers come up again and again - as do threats. "It ain't over…someone is dying on behalf of Usher…keep watching the news…revenge is sweet - trust. Dem Afrikanz DA all day."
And another: "Love to all my restin family - Black H - Usher - Iyke. Believe me it's not over."
It mirrors real life on the estates of Edmonton. On New Year's Day, 18-year-old Henri Bolombi was stabbed to death.


"You get less sentence killing some one with a knife than using a gun - so what's the point? "
Gang insider


A gang 'can offer them the love'
Speaking to gang members is not easy. One contact who we met was later accosted in a park in the heart of Edmonton and was warned from speaking to me, after a gun was held to his head.
Another gang member with inside knowledge was prepared to speak, because, he says, the violence has escalated out of control with too many "boys" dying. He says the threats made by gang members to avenge the killing of fellow gang members should not be taken lightly. "I will say it's something - more of a promise," he says.

Now, I knew gang crimes have been getting worse in the UK, but I had no idea it was as serious as this. Sounds like something from the Godfather. In my area there are a few 'gangs' but they don't do much, just fight occasionally and graffiti, but they're all wasters anyway.
Are there any gangs in your area, or have you been affected by anything like this before?

Here in Detroit we have the usual Bloods and Crips, but we also have a few Mexican gangs like Suernos, Nortenos, and 18th Street. I'm sure there are more, smaller gangs around.

Few small gangs made up of mostly polish and turkish immigrants. A few that grow weed in rented houses as well. Not an awful lot of trouble off them but they explode every now and then, not that it's reported in the news.

Then of course you have the resident chav gangs that go around beating people as a gang cause they are all pussies.

The gangs in Scotland are usually called 'teams', and the main gang at our school was about 20 people who used to call themselves the 'Pivvy Posse', but the police told them they aren't allowed to have a posse so they changed their name to The Forres Youth Team =/

Do firms count as gangs?

Because MK Dons supposedly have a firm made up of about fifteen twelve year olds, and they call themselve's the "MK Youth"

So many little wannabe gangsters around here.

Uh, in the south-eastern suburbs, we have the 317 boys... I know heaps of guys who are 317 boys. Also, my cousin is in the Oakleigh Wogs. But he's a dick, and there aren't any guys who will protect him when he ends up in jail. So, my soon to be imprisoned/dead cousin is in a fairly notorious gang... and he isn't even a wog.

Don't ya love gang banger mentality?

I hate gangs with a passion. Especially when they take on a single person as a group. It's disgusting and cowardly, but they use it to show how tough they are. Makes me think they're pussies one on one. A guy in a gang tried to take me on one on one and I beat him hard. I was chased by half a dozen of them later that week. I was lucky I was faster than they are though.

None in my town, but in the town I go to school in, people from my school are making these little gangs and thinking they're so cool... Chyeah, until a gang from the neighbouring town gets bored.

Gang mentality I guess. The government doesn't know shit about how to prevent gang culture. We didn't have any firms, are they specifically fans of a particular team?

Yeah, lots of big teams have a firm, basically just a gang of supporters that rival firms of other teams.

I live in the middle of Wisconsin (northern midwest united states for those who don't know) in a town of 24,000 people. We don't have gangs, but there are plenty of people who think that they're in one. For instance, I once personally witnessed five asians wearing baggie ass blue jeans, plain white shirts, and red bandanas jump out of...

wait for it...

Green Street ftw

Yea, no firms as such. Rangers and Celtic are the rivalry up north, and both teams co-existed peacefully in and out of school, so we're lucky in that aspect I guess.

A town near me is knows as 'The Toon' and it has a gang called 'The Toon Mad Squad' - we also have the 'Annan Mad Posse', 'The Castle Douglas Young Team' and 'The Lincluden Young Team' - They all abbreviate the names too sound cooler, LYT, CDYT, AMP, TMS etc.

There's a gang coming up in Adelaide called the "FFK" or "F2K" or something. No idea what it stands for, but they're meant to be pretty insane.
I'd never heard of them before the other day, but they seem to be taking over Adelaide pretty quickly.

I live in Slough, ain't a nice place to live but I don't think there's the serious gang culture like in London... there's the Nothboro Boys, they're pretty vicious, came and f*cked up a few people at a party I was at t'other day. Apart from that there's a few other Somalian and white Irish or Polish gangs, but they mainly keep to themselves and their own turf wars. Most of Slough's been cleaned up a lot, specially areas like Manor Park an that, I don't see a serious organized crime presence, tho obviously everyone aged 12-17 thinks they're in a gang and go an tag everywhere in sight.

Just groups of friends that feel like getting high on crime.

Back home we just have some teenagers that bust into cars and wiggers who smoke weed and make hollow threats.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

Gangs are a serious prob in newport... Asians, Somalians, Yardies, Jammies, Pill Maffia, The Moscow, Alway Crew, Ringland Crew, Duffryn Clan... The list goes on and on.

two years ago Lemmy Bullock was stabbed to death with a katana outside a pub in Pill over a drugs conflict with asians.
