Grypseria = Polish jail culture

Unread post by Samson28 » May 17th, 2013, 9:38 pm

Anyone heard of this? It seems to be a language and criminal code of the thieves in Poland or the elite inmates in jails. I am watching this documentary about it but its only in Polish:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9aOF_MRySE

Its about a guy who wanted to lewrn their code and language so he could study them and write their language down so he became one under docer and wrote a theasis on them. He said he heard an exotic almost oriental language and someone told him its grupseria but it was undocumented so he took on this project. He also said that to be a gryps in Polish jails or prisons, means to be "human" or a czlowiek and its a constant battle to remain a human/person with constant tests. To become one you rule a bunch of other inmates and theyre called frajerzy (punks). They are also professional thieves.

He also said that becoming one you have to be taken on by a thief and go through a testing process where one of the things you have to do is swallow wires and get a jail surgery to get them out after thy puncture you.or he pulled it by a string from his stomach but under scan it looked iside but was bound around clay or some material.

"There are three most sacred things to the Polish criminal world. The first is melina. Which is not just the place to hang out and bring alcohol, or sleep. But it is the whole institution. It is the sacred place that no can touch. Seondly, sacredness is the criminal group. In which they get raised since childhood as recidivists. It is more important than family. And third it is their secret language."

At the end of the vid he sings one of their sacred songs.

Watch from 19:00 on when the Lockup crew from America go to Poland and interview a leader of a Polish organized crime syndicate of how hard real Polaks and gryps are (they are all bigger and meaner looking than any of the serbs shown for instance or Chechs):



This guy would probably rip the asshole out of three Cali woods at the same rime and two mexicanos. Not only that unlike the wood drug fiends and mexican savages he is actually intelligent and surprises the camera crew with his with. White people in America dont look like that or have his demeanor. But also watch the whole eocumentary to see how respected actual inmates are in eqstern europe unlike Unerica and how they are treated humainly. This is all over EU as well. This is what works not tour stupid Umerican kentality. They are humans like everyone else and deserve to be treated as such. in serbia they even have a huge pool to swim in.
