can some one from uk tell me the truth about this ? I really don't know what to believe but i am interested in knowing. Some of my friends have told me that its really getting bad in london with all sorts of gangs and its actually 9-15 year old kids joining gangs, bringing pistols and knives to schools. is this really that bad or are they hyping it too much ? and whats with the knifings ? stabbing seems soooooo much in the news. and why so many young british kids are turning into chavs/gangsters/rudeboyz ? is it considered cool out there ?
