Research recently conducted into violent youth culture has informed us that ome of the most violent youths in soiciety are upset by the tag "gang"
A violent lazy good-for-nothing sponging spotty irritating ugly spiky hair gelled teenager said, "I was biting the heads off of some kittens the other day when I heard that a crime I myself and my mates had perpetrated earlier in the month was tagged as "gang related". I was really upset and later I had to abandon a failed attempted at killing my neighbour's kids as I was so upset"
Reports from namby pambies said that the most yobs in their areas are about to strike and will no longer carry out muggings or petty theft in a nationwide twenty four hour stoppage until journalists fall into line.
"It's not fair. We undertake violent crime in good faith and often continue mugging and house breaking well into the small hours. Some of us have to beat up innocent people eight days a week just to make ends meet."
Some hardcore psychopaths are considering a hunger strike until demands are met. Police are encouraging them to continue.
