Street & Youth Violence in London and UK: Epidemic

You don´t see this part of London or of the United Kingdom in the cool magazines, the trendy shops, the luxury stores or the green countryside. Neither is it talked about on the overseas news, as what we hear is about a booming economy & all the rest that is associated.

Behind the scenes in the poorer outer suburbs of the big cities, specially London, there is an epidemic of street & youth gang violence that is shocking, disturbing & worrying. In London alone it is estimated that there are + 190 gangs, either fighting, dealing drugs or moving weapons. The members of these violent gangs are getting younger & younger, & there is little effective politics to curb the trend. Here is a video clip of the suburbs...London is burning!
