Final Review Street gangs throughout Europe o Skinheads are like the Neo-Nazi + Skinheads o Neo-Nazi’s and Skinheads are all over (Poland, Ireland, France) o Euro-Paradox : Matt Kline points out how the authorities deny the existence of  gangs because they do not fit the typical gangsta dream even though general gangs are recognized, their existence is denied  especially by authorities o Street gang behaviors have been reported in the writings of the  1600’s .  These  are legitimate academic writings. o In  1390   Chaucer  cites gangs!  This is the origin of identifying gangs in Europe o Literature suggests that the murders were much more brutal than today’s gangs.  So Gangs have been violent for a very long time. In the Middle Ages gangs were more violent than they are today, and the  behavior was more INTIMATE because of the weapons they used World events/climate influences gangs. o WWII, Industrial Revolution affected gangs from all over. (Europe, England and  America) Language plays a role from all over o England, fight = scuttling o Prison gang, “bump titties” = fight o Hooligans  = British street gang, formed from the working class, blue collar studs,  tough kids from tough families.  Associated with  soccer  teams! o Gangs all over the world formed for the same reason that our gangs form    exclusion ! Our modern day skinheads came from the  Mods  (rich kids with scooters) and  Rockers  (poor kids with dirty motorcycles).  The Teddy Boys led to the Mods and the Rockers
