Well, as far as the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany ans most other Western-European countries go, that's complete bullsht.Here in europe, at least most of western europe countries, if a bunch of guys are reppin, they all get arrested because they may have committed a crime, they dont wait to look for the one who fits the suspect description, they all get arrested becuz someone of the group may have committed a crime, and the rest of the group are dubbed as criminals, so the group is illegal, thats why they all get to jail, and spent 1 or 2 years till the judge decides. So in europe it aint a smart move reppin a group where some are commiting crimes, becuz u know what happen, that why the criminal gangs just try not to get attention, and the organized crime in italy are all in hiding, so they even cant go out free like that.
At least here there is no rico law, theres the belonging to a criminal gang, they dont wait to proove if you act like a mafia, it just has to be a group commiting crimes, and they automatically charge you with that, gettin a minimum 10 year sentence, and most of them charged with these werent organized crime, so reppin a group that has done crimes here, is just a short way.
Here in Holland almost every other week we can read in the newspaper how somebody gets severely beaten up or killed by a group of youth, and noone gets punished because they can't proof who of the group did the actual stabbing, shooting or kicking.
When you're in a group they can't touch you here and that's also the reason criminal groups like the Hells Angels are not forbidden by law and they can fly their colors, intimidate everybody and do as they please.
