North America is for street gangs. Europe is for Organized Crime. Asia is for Terrorist groups. South America is for Gurrillas. Africa is for Warlords. Central America is for Rebels.

Or something like that. But quote the first two sentances:

NA = SG + E = OC

It's true.

Street gangs belong to the USA and originated from there. Organized crime like we know it originated from Europe.

Example --- Italians in the 1930s.

Example --- Crips in the 1990s.

And so fourth...

Asia is for terrorist groups? I don't think you should label Asians terrorists as its only the Middle East and not eastern Asians. There are more European terrorists than Eastern Asian terrorists. Eastern Asia is definately for organized crime.

Anyways those pictures don't look like hoods, they just look like abandoned warehouses and shit. I don't see no one walking around

You wrong useless always typing like you all smart and shit. Everywhere has street gangs as long as there is a big enough community with some desperate people. They even had gangs in the medieval times in Europe that controlled highways and robbed people and shit. there's organized crime in every continenet, drug pushers in every continent, and gangs in every continent. the only thing is in SA, CA, the middle east, and Africa you have rebels, warlords, and that other shit you were talking about.

No I'm not wrong. I am writing examples. I am writing main fronts. I am not saying that it's only for that type of group. EXAMPLES!!!!!

When did I say I was 'smart and shit'? I know there is street gangs everywhere but they haven't been around forever. In the medieval times, there weren't any gangs. There was bandits and thiefs and shit.

I am talking about present day. You are talking about historical geography. Don't educate me. I know more than you do in this subject. I can ask you a question that you would be able to look up on the internet and tell me the answer but you would not be able to tell me the answer if you said it from mind.

Have you ever heard of terrorists/street gangs/organized crime/shit like that in medival times? Bring me an article.

I know that you will prolly BS me and tell me to prove my post by telling me to bring you an article. You know those facts. Don't fuck around.

I know there are gangs/drug dealers/oc/blah blah in every continent. I am talking in general. I am not going to list for you a bunch of gangs and shit that say which continent is for what and that it must be like that.

You think too specificly when I'm talking generally, and when I'm talking specificly you tell me to speak generally so it would be more clear to you.

It's like in schools. The teachers know it but they want us to tell it to them to see if we know it and we do, but they will just keep repeating it until we are brainwashed with it and piss us off and blame us for shit we were forced into doing.

You don't have to agree with what I am saying but what I'm saying is an example in general, and I know that there is each of those in every continent so don't tell me that there is every kind of criminals in every continent.

I know. I don't care. I made a statement. I don't have to prove it if I don't want to. Why the hell are you so damn pushy about it?

I am not calling asians terrorists or africans warlords or south americans gurrilas/rebels, but I am saying that those type of groups operate in those regions and if you'd play a game, watch a movie, get educated or read something, then you'd know what the hell I'm talking about.

In Asia, there is the Middle East, and the media says that terrorists come from the Middle East mainly.

In Africa, there is the military warlords, and the media says that the warlords have their military groups, run countries, and consider them the bad guys because they put the country in hell.

In Europe, there is the Italians, and the media says that the Italians are the real gangsters and that they created the Mafia, and gave a new meaning to organized crime.

In South/Central America, there is the gurrila groups and rebel forces, such as the FARC group in Columbia, which are considered 'rebels' and the media says shit in ways that make them look like rebels/gurrilas like the one in jungles and in movies.

In North America, there is street gangs everywhere you go, and the media says shit about gang related crimes going up and down and street gangs are flooding cities and shit and statistics about gang members. Like Chris Tucker said in Rush Hour 2: "I'm from Los Angeles, We invented gangs!".

I'm not being a smart ass. You are just being ignorant. Case closed.

You have A LOT of Street Gangs in Africa aswell. They are also more violent than their American counterparts. You have Streetgangs all over Europe, that are not as violent as american SGs.

But you areright Peron, Streetgangs have been around forever. Already in ancient times you had organizations that you could call Streegangs. I remember rerading abook about the Romans, which said that they had Gangs that were all into Chariot races.
They were constantly fighting with each other for the control of the moneybets and of course just for the sake of it. One fraction wore green colours and one red....No shit.
So you always had. them

LOL

Your wrong abut this, but i dont have the time to enlighten you so just open your mind...

One thing Thrasher (1927) in his study of the 1,313 Chicago Gang highlights the important role that immigrants, particularly those of European origin, played in the creation and expansion of gangs in Chicago. Ironically, evidence is now coming to light that American gangs have an influence on the emerging gang problems in Europe.

In this sense the role of immigration has come full circle, whereby European immigrants played a central role in the formation and membership of American gangs in the twentieth century, and American gangs are now influencing the symbols, style, and activities of European gangs in the 21st C.

LMAO How u gonna use Chris Tucker as a quote, im from LA we invented gangs LOL

That is wrong on all levels. LA has been home to a unique style of gang that has been replicated and publicised world wide and in terms of sheer numbers LA is the USA gang capital, but gangs were not invented in Los Angeles.

Try researching the "Culworth Gang" from the 1780s

Ok, check this site for the Glasgow thing

www.geocities.com/glasgow/home.html

And the lad from Chelsea.....come on over to Hackney, go for a walk round...and then tell me there are no gangs lol!

Here to name but a few, weve got -

LondonFields Man Dem (Manz/Boyz etc)
Pembury Man Dem/Boyz aka P-Block
Holly Street Boyz/Man Dem
E5th Ridaz
Mothers Square Man Dem
LOS (Lords of Stoke)
Love of Money
E9crews (BangBang)
And so many coming up...
Ballance
Gillpin Square
Kingsmead.....
Too many

Peeps can't move from one of those endz to another and many of those crews can come together under their postcode banner, like crews from E8 (ie Fields) rep Fields and E8 (but beef with Holly ST who also rep E8) or crews from E5 against E9. Most clicks used to be under umbrella of Hackney Man Dem, but have splintered into estate/area/postcode crews. Crews are often broken up into 'Older' crews' and 'Younger' crews.

Sadly, its all too real.

Just last week or so in South Hackney, boys drove past a bbq full of young ones and the four boys in the car wearing balaclavas pumped bullets into the party, shooting three boys. Its an everyday thing.

do the firms ever get into it with the street gangs? or are they seperate deals. i guess they are both in different games but crossing paths wouldnt be out of the question...i mean if any lads from a firm got bashed by a street gang would the firm go and seek out revenge???? or are they a different class of gang therefore dont have any interaction?

Interesting question, but I think the old school firms and streetgangs don't cross paths as far as i know - the firms as far as I know are mainly white, organised, suited and booted like businessmen and its a crime thing and so like mini mafia's, they would wish to be underground, though they have their own version of bling still - run boxing clubs, strip bars and the likes A family tree from the Krays and old timers. Firms are more linked to organised crime - old crime families, or old school types from the time of the Krays who've become like 'consultants' to newer firms. Streetgangs here are unorganised, nothing like the numbers of the stateside gangs and stay very local to their home yards in the main. And involved in street stuff, shotting and dealing, making life a misery for local residents living in fear of them and beefing with rivals. Very different things.

cheers noog... yeah i kinda thought that would be the case.a fair few of the people in firms would be fairly normal members of mainstream society as well as loving punching on on the weekends. im a big fan of the idea of firms, im sure there are less glorified points that im not aware of, but it seems the most honarable way to fight in a gang these days. i like the fact its an agreed upon thing you know? they all know what they are getting them selves into when they rock up on the away games.
