Default Heavily Armed Gangs in the EU

Stand-alone post for max visibility.

Rhetorical question: what happens when these gangs are reinforced with returning ISIS combat veterans?

Mean Streets: Denmark Cooks Up Ban to Prevent Takeover by Multiethnic Mobs
Quote:
Incessant wars raging between rival gangs in parts of the capital city of Copenhagen have become a problem of national importance. As the death toll rises in step with the number of shootouts, the national government is pledging decisive steps to crack down on gangland crime.
The multiethnic Nrrebro neighborhood ofCopenhagen has been a hotbed ofgangland crime forthe last six months, yielding a bloody harvest ofthree dead and 25 injured in42 shooting episodes, which can be attributed toa turf war betweenLoyal toFamilia (LTF) and Brothas, both including many non-Danes.
The snowballing law-breaking and persistent infighting making national headlines has spurred the Danish authorities intoaction. Copenhagen Police director Anne Tnnes has said that the situation is being taken seriously, stressing that the police measures were beginning toshow results.
Quote:
According toTnnes, over60 local gangsters were detained and 3,300 local residents were searched ina massive effort toconfiscate asmany firearms aspossible.
(So much for the EU's so-called 'enlightened' restrictive firearms laws, wherein only the law-abiding are punished).

Quote:
LTF was previously described ashaving the most elaborate and consistent strategy ofall the Danish gangs. It was also considered tobe atthe root ofall gang conflicts inthe Nordic country bythe National Police Investigation Center, being involved inthree outof three gang conflicts. LTF is said tobe atwar withBrabrand Group, Black Army and Brothas, most ofwhich are dominated byimmigrants withnon-Western backgrounds.
"In recent years, it has primarily been aboutthese immigrant youths. These are young men, witha background inthe Middle East. Most are born and raised inDenmark, yet a great deal has yet togain Danish citizenship," University ofAalborg criminologist Kim Mller told Norwegian national broadcaster NRK.
LTF is fronted byShuaib Khan, the son oflocal politician Wallait Khan, currently a political maverick. By the age of30, Khan junior has amassed verdicts totaling 12 years ofprison time. Khan's release fromprison earlier this year was speculated tohave fueled the Danish turf wars.

Kotors picture-perfect old town and its setting surrounded by rocky mountains dropping straight to a long bay have earned it first place in Lonely Planets Best in Travel cities list this year.
But the Adriatic idyll of shady limestone alleyways and imposing baroque churches has been spoiled by a spate of armed clashes between criminal gangs, which has led to the government sending in anti-terrorist police to quell the situation and put the city on lockdown.
Six incidents in three months have included gunfights and a murder, according to the reporting network Balkan Insight.

The most recent incident was a gunfight on 3 June, reportedly between rival drug gangs operating in Kotor.

Historical perspective on Marseille, which within recent memory seems to often be mentioned in the same breath as AK47s found at crime scenes.

Quote:
In Marseille's long history of organised crime, where murderous mobsters with names such as The Belgian and The Blond became folklore, it's perhaps not surprising that the underworld spawned its own spin-off clothing line.

But France's second city is now battling a new wave of murderous, organised crime gangs. The Mediterranean port city, designated European capital of culture for 2013, has for years worked to shed its gangland image as "Chicago of the south" and rebrand itself as a major city break destination.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...arseille-crime



Quote:
France outlaws most gun ownership and it’s almost impossible to legally acquire a high-powered rifle such as an AK-47, so where did the weapons in the Nov. 13 terror attack—not to mention the bloody January assault by Islamic terrorists on the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo magazine and the 2012 shootings by a militant in Toulouse—come from?

The answer: Eastern Europe, most likely, where the trafficking of deadly small arms is big, shady business. And where local authorities find it difficult to intervene.

The French government and the European Union know they have a foreign gun problem. But as the chain of attacks illustrates, efforts to tamp down on the flow of weapons have, so far, failed to disarm terrorists.
French police reportedly seized more than 1,500 illegal weapons in 2009 and no fewer than 2,700 in 2010. The number of illegal guns in France has swollen by double-digit percentages annually for several years, Al Jazeera reported, citing figures from Paris-based National Observatory for Delinquency.
