Defending their area
They Say It’s a laugh
They Vandalise so they can show that it is their territory.
They use different signs and pictures to create their gang logos.
They also use them so people know they are in that gang.
What they use to fight and harm different gangs.
Coche/planks of wood
Glasgow is blighted by "epidemic" levels of drug and alcohol abuse and has the same number of teenage gangs as London, according to a think tank .
It warned that there were 170 teenage gangs in Glasgow - the same number as in London
The proportion of young people not in employment, education or training was about 18% - 50% more than the Scottish average and roughly twice that of Manchester .
KNIFE seizures have soared in gang hotspots as police try to break the generations-old culture that wrecks communities .
However, residents of the area with the most knife seizures - Wellhouse in the East End - say they are sceptical about anti-knife campaigns, which they fear may be "publicity stunts" and happen too infrequently.
A grandfather who has lived in the area for more than 25 years said: "Whatever the police say, they are rarely here. When they are it seems like a publicity stunt because it is all over the news they are carrying out crackdowns' or whatever."
There are 580,000 people in Glasgow City or 1.75million in Greater Glasgow. Great
London has 7.5million - either nearly 13 times or just over four times the Glasgow/Greater Glasgow population. Where does the 'six times' come from and can we actually trust any of these figures?
"There are estimated to be more than 170 gangs in the Glasgow city region - this compares to 169 identified by the Metropolitan Police service in London.
How Much It Costs
Couldn't the government or the courts consider the end cost to society and take this into consideration when looking at crime and punishment?
I read constantly of yobs causing £5,000 worth of damage and then being fined something lousy like £100
