You should hear the music they listen to, either rap (standable) or 'garage', garage just sounds like a guy who's had his nuts hooked up to the national circuit and gone into a verbal spasm.





Being the boring old fart I am, I'll take your comments on music and use the same methodology I applied to the gang mentality.

In the 50's there was Rock and Roll. (Abject horror expressed by the older community)
In the 60's there was the arrival of the Beatles. (Abject horror expressed by the older community)
In the 70's Punk Rock. (More abject horror)

Need I go on!

I find it ammusing that you continue to exlain suprise and disgust at something that's been around for ages.

Maybe I'm just too old and mellow to worry. (I still won't let my daughter have Rap on the radio while I'm driving though!

I don't know if I should laugh, cry, or silently look away...I can't believe that someone actually took the time to write all that up.
I work in the city, so this is nothing new to me. I see the real deal every day. Before people start to flame me, I'm not trying to make this a white vs. black thing here. I know that there are gangs for all walks of life (white, black, Vietnamese, purple people eaters, whatever). Not are all bad people, they just have taken this particular path due to need of safety, bad circumstances, pressure from outside, whatever. I'm not meaning to sound like some nancy here and I do realize that there is a large percentage out there that I would want to avoid at all costs. I had a good friend in college that was in a gang. He tried to get out but got sucked back in unfortunately. I find it funny to hear the suburb kids trying to act like gang bangers though. Some may actually be, but I think many of them are just searching for some sort of identity and this is what they happend to latch on to for what ever reason/
I'm gonna ghost now, but that was dope man. Catch you all l8r cause the po po is gonna be rollin' up on me now. I'm out. *silently has a seizure and hope she doesn't get yelled at by a moderator*

HOW DARE YOU POST THAT!!!!!!

Nothing wrong with your post quietgal. Gang culture is everywhere and I think you summed up perfectly one of the main reasons why people get involved in it, lack of identity.

Now anymore insightful posts like that and your gonna get banned...OK????

Blooming loads of them!

I'm only bothered about the groups of 5+ that may carry knifes, it's a difficult situation.

You often find that it's the youngest/newest member of the 'gang' that starts things off - trying to prove him or herself.

It's pathetic.

In my area, we are already taking them on (the chavs that go round in groups battering people) and slowly, but surely, they get the message.

Alot of that article isn't even gang terms. It's just "urban" for lack of better word. I mean, a good 60% of that I heard when I was a kid in rural washington!!!
PS - why is this thread posted in two forums?

Cord, you forgot to mention that the male ones have a gold sovereign ring for each child they've fathered before their seventeenth birthday (or the girls' 16th)

Once read about the old Glasgow pre-war street gangs. Oh boy were they NOT wannabeez! However, did anyone know the word 'hooligan' comes from the name of a rather wild family of Irish thugs who were into the odd bash here and there?

Ever wander where the english language is going with all these weiered phrases?
Soon this type of talking may become normal and everybody sounds like a complete moron.

I agree with what you say about them having lack of identity, although I already came up with my own theory on why there are such large numbers of these morons, here goes:

-first of all they all start out as lone geeks, outcasts with no particuler talents or skills.

-they find others like themselves who are equally stupid moronic.

-during their time together they discover they have similar interests such as a taste in music or clothes.

-more people are inducted into the group and the cesspit grows.

-they begin using phrases from the music they listen to, giving rise to the retarted linguistics we all love.

-eventually there are so many of them they can be considered popular, not because there good people but because they all share the fact their retarded.

-to impress eachother they do things they would'nt normally do such as shout at the elderly and intimidate little kids, one example is the recent "happy slapping" whitch to date two (possibly more) people in the UK have died because of.


How to be respected/feared by chavs:

-hang around in groups of people who are known for their fighting skills, they dont say much to the deadly.

-"accidently" show them your knuckles or palms the day after a good conditioning session, they automaticly assume you can fight (which if you practice MA you probably can).

-"reluctantly" show them a feat of strength, one of my personal favourites to intimidate chavs is to make massive dents in the school lockers with knife hand strikes (immature and destructive but it works).

-let them hit you, if you can take a punch they wont think about trying it on. This is usually done when they try to start a fight. When they start simply say "hit me then, take a shot" in a cool, calm manner, the chances are they wont they'll rather say:

Quote:

"your not worf it, mate"




But should they decide to hit you and your still standing just laurgh and say "is that it?, do it again that was funny". they turn and walk away silently with their 'homies' and probably wont bother you again, and when they do see you they'll either be quiet and look away or say in a cowardly voice "s-safe, man". Just respond with a nod and leave it at that.

Eventually, you should have a rep as a "deadly man who will MERK YOU" with out actually getting into a fight.

Being confident, almost cocky even seems to help. As well as being more threatening. I can remember one time in school. I had a younger guy, I'd say about by a grade or two, I'm in grade 12, anyways. He comes up too me and says he doesn't like the way I looked at him. I hadn't even done anything! But I decided to go along with it for a laugh.

So he starts to talk smack, calling me a variety of words I wont mention on here. I tried to hold in my laughter as I asked what he was going to do about it. I was then told by this wanna be that his "crew" was going to "pop" me. I looked over his shoulder, and all I saw was a small group of scared looking younger kids. This is where it gets funny. He pushes me and asks if I want too fight. So I pushed him back and said "Sure, lets do it right now" I have never seen a more confused look in my life. He just started to mutter and then told me I wasn't worth it and walked away. I went about my business chuckling that people can be so retarded.
