Britain's feral gangs 'are now a bigger danger than terrorism': Criminals' online boasts of shootings and stabbings inspire the next generation of gangsters says crime expert


Gang crime poses a bigger threat to society than terrorism, an expert has claimed.

Two teenagers were killed within just minutes of another this week, both reportedly gunned down as they were caught in brutal postcode wars in London. 

Dr. Mohammed Rahman, a lecturer in Criminology at Birmingham City University, told MailOnline that gang violence now poses a bigger threat to residents in the UK than terrorism.

And he said criminals are using YouTube and social media to encourage gang members to carry out killings.

So far this year, the Metropolitan Police has launched 50 murder investigations - 12 in January, 15 in February, 19 in March and four in April

Dr Rahman said while such crime was not a new phenomenon, gangland activities are on the rise amid an increase in social media use. 

He told MailOnline: 'There is a rise in knife crime because nothing is being done about it.

'Gang crime and gangland violence should be taken seriously as terrorism by the state.

'Statistical trends over the years show more fatalities of gangland activities than terrorist activities. There is no voice of reason from state officials and an absence of debate.'

He added : 'One of the catalysts of postcode wars is social media. Youths of today are using social media to stamp their authority within a particular locale through images, texts, and visuals.

'They are essentially criminal undertakers - individuals who feel as though they're superior to others within the context of geographical areas.

'There is a surge in video platforms such as Link Up TV and YouTube which are promoting individuals recently released from prison for serious crimes.

'Within the first three or four months they're on these platforms talking about stuff they've done previously. They may have stopped reoffending in the common term but what they've done is re-channelled violent energies and made it digitalised.  

'I see individuals I know that have been incarcerated for a long time then film videos talking about violence and death.' 

He added: 'Gangs have access to knives relatively easy – they are sold to over 18s in most shops.

'Although we consider ourselves to have some of the tightest gun controls laws in the world, they're easy to get hold of.

'There is a push and a pull effect – as soon as you make it illegal you create a black market. 

'Rogue dealers are supplying and distributing guns to gangland bosses and they are then used in hits.'

In Birmingham, gang members have started making music videos where they rap coded threats to rival gangs in the area.

One particular video, uploaded to YouTube in December and called Trapline Jump, has hooded figures with face masks directing chilling messages to a gang called the Frankley Killers.

They boastfully rap about 44 calibre revolvers and 9mm calibre handguns in the dimly-lit clip. 

Gang signs are proudly waved and displayed throughout the low-budget music video. 

The men are believed to be members of the 61 gang, who are in dispute with the Frankley Killers.

The hoodlums brag about guns and darkly reference a shooting and separate stabbing that took place in the city.

The grime music video was viewed more than 50,000 times on YouTube and there are several more similar style clips on the platform from other gangs. 

The Frankley Killers, the 61 and another group, called the 247365, are based around their turfs in south Birmingham and are said to be involved with Class A and Class B drug supplies.  

Members of the 61 gang have chosen their name based off a nearby bus route. 

The 247365 refers to members' hustle for gang activity that is 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.

All three groups have been using music and social media to assert their dominance and threaten the other gangs.
