I can't speak for any other country, but it does exist in the UK, particularly in London. It's not that UK gang culture is less violent than US gang culture, but the violence tends to be knife and acid attack related these days, although you get the occasional shooting. A lot of it is also physical assaults, hich really only hit the headlines when it spills over into gentrified areas.Gang culture, is that something common in Western Europe?
What we don't really get, since 1997 and Dunblane anyway, is mass shootings, which, in all fairness to the US, probably get more than their fair share of headlines compared to the number of deaths vs suicides o gang violence.
