From a double page spread in The Evening Standard.

Those of you with good reading habits will remember Judge Dredd in 2000AD and the ‘Block Mania’ stories. It looks like more of Brian Bolland’s madness is leaking into reality.

There is an exhibition on populations in cities at the Tate Modern; this year, 50% of all people on the earth will be living in cities. As this trend continues and people from different places coalesce into self contained cesspools in Megacities, you are going to see more ‘Block Mania’ outbreaks as people turn to gangs for identity, protection and a way to make a living.

And in case you didn’t know, ‘Man Dem’ means:

“Man Dem is the term used for a group of friends or homies. This term originated from the carribean but found its way to the streets of the uk where it is widely used.

I’m going to link man dem.”

Urban Dictionary

So we can say, “Big up BLOGDIAL Man Dem!”

Oh, and they forgot the hideous, perfidious and insidious gang ‘The Knights of 30 St Mary Axe’.

As you can see, some of these gangs and gang members have Bebo, Myspace and YouTube spots where they boast their hardness. Some of those links are priceless.

Here is a neat video compiling footage of many gangs.

Thanks to all the reporting on handgun crime, shootings, knife crime and gangland stabbings in London, the traffic for this post has gone through the ceiling. It seems also, that people are searching for specific gang names and ending up here.

    [i]”Can you count, suckers? I say the future is ours…If you can count. Now look, what we have here before us. We’ve got the Sorisons(?) sitting next to the Jones St Boys. We’ve got the moon runners, right next to the courtland rangers.

    Nobody is wasting nobody. That is a miracle. And the way things ougth to be. You’re standing right now with 9 delegates from 100 gangs. And there’s a hundred more. That’s 20 thousand hard core members! 40,000 counting affiliates, and 20,000 more not organized, but ready to fight. 60,000 soldiers. Now there ain’t but 20,000 police in the whole town. Can you dig it? Can you dig it? CAAAANNN YOUUUU DIG ITTT! (Roar)

    Now here’s the sum total. One gang could run this city. One gang. nothing would move, without us allowing it to happen. Tax the crime syndicates, the police, because we’ve got the street, suckers!CAAAANNN YOUUUU DIG ITTT! (Roar)

    The problem in the past, has been the man turning us against one another! We have been unable to say the truth, because we have been fighting for 10 square feet of ground. Our turf. Our little piece of turf. That’s crap brothers! The turf is ours by right, because it’s our terms. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one borough at a time. Secure our territoty. Secure our turf. Because it’s allllll… ourrrrr… turf.”[/i]
