What gangs do you have in your country/state? I have always found crime and gangs etc. interesting, although I have no wish to participate any of that myself. But anyways, that was the question.
Finnfag here. We got mostly motorcycle gangs. Hells Angels MC, Bandidos MC (and some sub divisions like Diablos MC), Finnish Cannonball MC and some others like that. We got less regular street gangs though. N.B.K and Rogues Gallery maybe.
Dont know about Spain though. Haven't lived for long here. Latin Kings I think??
How about in your country? Gif unrelated to the discussion.
Thanks man. if I can ask one more question, is it true that MS13 is one of the most feared gangs in US? Heard that from someone, dont remember from whom though
Yakuza does exist, but I haven't ever seen them irl.
Maybe, I live in rural part of Japan?
My stereotype tells me that European gang (especially Italian ones) are more criminal than Yakuza.
>most feared gangs
Probably a cartel from Mexico(Los Zetas or something)or the US government. Regular street gangs aren't that intimidating considering they never pull anything major against the general population.
Thanks. I have interest in mexican gangs as well, especially Mexican Mafia. Thinking about buying a book about them
israeli organized crime is very italian-mafia like . theres 4 main crime families and they mostly do debt collecting and gambling .
also they tend to throw grenades at eachother's houses as scare tactics and bomb each other's cars .
>30 billion sheqels in organized crime
It is said that Yakuza cuts his own finger to show a deep apology to his boss, when he committed something critical wrong thing.
The pic is related. This is for Yakuza who lacks of his finger because of that.
Gambling as in organizing illegal gambling events?
Dont know, got it from /k/ history thread long time ago if I remember right
Unsurprisingly we also have motorcycle gangs
We've had a big shitfight over anti-bikie legislation and what it means for civil liberties and associated cultural stuff like tattoos, recreational riding, socioeconomic profiling, etc.
Lebs get up to mischief in suburban Sydney and we had a long running gang war in Melbourne which centered around what's left of that city's mafia organisation.
Apart from that, most drugs, smuggling and illegal prostitution in Oz gets done by small-time opportunists who are usually involved directly in the whole business, production to sale. Growers, sly-groggers and mama-sans.
We have a ton.
The war between the government and the gangs is really interesting.
I'll bump with shit from my folder.
Organised crime is literally about normalising and moderating criminality. That's why it's so dangerous that the Yakuza gangs are in-fighting, there's no one in authority to stop small time crooks from using unsociable violence.
Either a satanist or from 18st.
Then you have your plethora of biker gangs.
Most notably the Hells angels.
Tbh, If I had to name all the gangs in this country, I would be here for like 2 or 3 days straight.
The only group who clearly runs shit here is the government.
The government is no one to fuck with, here.
The National Liberation Front of Corsica. They are a sort of light IRA and operate like gang (revolutinary tax to tradespeople)
We also have regular mafias like "Gang de la Brise de Mer (Gang of the the sea breeze)" and in the 70's the French Connexion was also called the "Corsican connexion" because almost all the members were corsicans
some suburbian/arab gangs who pass haschisch to France via Spain and take holidays in Thailand
small groups of thieves/bank robbers
various unvisible mafias from others countries (russian, italian,albanian...)
some motorcycle gangs, but this is not a big thing here
corsican and basque independantists who sometimes sells drugs to found the struggle
and so on
You don't have to worry, they just killed each other. Also, FLNC officialy stop violent actions in 2014. Paradoxically, Corsica is one of the safest region of France. People here don't lock there door, and women can hang out alone in the night without nothing to fear.
I hope you will enjoy your time here, it's really beautiful
I find "vors" very interesting. Can anyone recommend a good book about Russian prisoners/prisons, thieves in laws or Russian mob? Pic not related.
I live in the south of the island and the Legionnaires are in Calvi, in the North. But I konw there was a fight between 2 drunk corsicans and 2 drunk legionaries a year ago.
It's pretty rare I think
Good book. Not sure how relevant it is any more, though.
You have the cartels ontop like the Sinaloa Cartel, zetas, and cartel del golfo that smuggle drugs. Then you have big time gangs that rule the prisons like MS-13, 18th street, surenos, nortenos, crips, bloods, skinhead lowriders, and bikers.
N.B.K and Rogues Gallery haven't existed in a long time. They got together with M.O.R.E and became the United Brotherhood. UB is half dead with a lot of people in jail or dead nowadays though.
a few maori biker gangs like mongrel mob (pic related), black power, etc
theres apparently some white supremacist gangs in the south island but i think that might be exaggerated
but theres definitely asian organized crime in auckland. i see businesses in prime real estate that are always empty/closed but have very fancy cars parked outside and always asian dudes hanging about
