01:28

in my area there's a few hoods in the

01:30

city right these were the first suburbs

01:32

of Sydney these were the first housing

01:34

Estates in Sydney and for a long long

01:36

time these were the infamous and worst

01:39

and biggest housing Estates of Sydney in

01:42

the criminal world in the jail system

01:44

it's a famous suburb that a lot of

01:46

criminals a lot of Originators the boys

01:49

from around here were all the same boys

01:51

waloo red firm watero Glee and in the

01:54

prison system we're all the same boys

01:56

right we're one crew Glee isn't the

01:58

biggest red firm water is the biggest

02:00

but there's something special about GLE

02:02

and I'll get into it the boys who were

02:04

older boys when I was a kid around GLE

02:07

were very influential and and I'm

02:09

telling you this from my experience and

02:11

anyone in Sydney this isn't a biased

02:13

thing boys who are proper boys from penr

02:15

who are OJ's boys from Campbell town

02:17

boys from bwood boys from bankstown

02:20

doesn't matter what part in Sydney

02:21

you're from will agree to what I'm

02:23

saying here the older boys from GLE that

02:26

I had the pleasure of being raised

02:27

around and looking up to were very

02:30

influential in shaping the culture the

02:33

criminal culture in the streets of

02:35

Sydney as a whole and New South Wales as

02:37

a whole and I dare say leading on from

02:40

that Australia as a whole because it's

02:42

known Australia wide that criminal

02:44

culture of Sydney City or Sydney in

02:46

general has been adopted all around

02:49

Australia there's people in Perth people

02:51

in Brisbane people in Adelaide I've been

02:53

a ho but there's people there been in

02:54

Melbourne there's people there who are

02:56

dressing and are walking and are talking

02:58

like the people from Sydney and that's

02:59

that's just the fact you might be upset

03:01

that I say that but that's the way it is

03:04

so in that sense a lot of what you see

03:06

going on around the country originated

03:08

in Sydney City and very specifically in

03:11

Glee a lot of it glee at one point in

03:13

time was the highest rate of armed

03:16

robbers bank robbers in Australia GLE at

03:19

one point in time was the highest rate

03:21

of ram Raiders in Australia Cruise of

03:24

boys getting around and that's that was

03:25

the thing in Glee it was a money-making

03:28

cultural style and so visually the way

03:31

the housing Estates are there's two

03:33

different styles in Sydney City so

03:35

there's the style of su Hills and watero

03:38

where it's all big towers and there's

03:40

the styles of red fern GLE and wuloo

03:43

where it's all houses it's all like town

03:46

houses but really really old school

03:48

houses nowadays each one of those houses

03:50

the funny thing has become a really high

03:53

quality Heritage home that's worth like

03:55

$10 million each or something crazy I'm

03:58

probably exaggerating it's crazy the

04:00

turnaround people are dying and to buy

04:02

old housing commissions in Sydney City

04:04

so you can understand with that going on

04:06

how much private developers are battling

04:10

and people in the government are pushing

04:12

to kick everyone out of these areas in

04:15

Housing Commission and sell them off for

04:17

crazy amounts of money and recently

04:19

Glee's been getting real bad again and I

04:21

mean recent recent like 3 4 days ago it

04:24

was on the news there was like gangs of

04:26

teenagers on the Main Street trying to

04:28

break in a store and just generally

04:30

harassing people but apparently it's

04:33

getting bad again like there's a whole

04:35

new generation of um young Lads coming

04:37

through running a big Mark I've got

04:39

statistics here these are recent this is

04:42

like last year's statistics just crimes

04:44

in general is over triple the state

04:46

average violent crimes is just under

04:50

triple the state average and property

04:52

crimes is almost four times the state

04:54

average even though I most identify with

04:57

Walo it's toed on my chest and that's on

12:40

known this GLE this tiny little suburb

12:43

in the inner city of Sydney in near

12:44

darling harbar the suburb is just

12:47

flooded with adays on the search ripping

12:49

rexies ripping whatever car they can

12:52

pumping up Robin jewelry stores Robin

12:54

Banks like this is not a sometimes thing

12:56

this is not like oh one day someone done

12:58

this every day this is like every if

13:00

you're not doing it you're a gr if if

13:03

wasn't doing it you wasn't blending any

13:04

you weren one of the everyone was making

13:06

own that's how it was back in the day

13:07

you can walk through a GLE like brother

13:09

me like that was what the older boys

13:10

doing I was only Young Brother what I

13:12

was doing brother like I was only

13:13

walking through and breaking in the cars

13:15

but you break into a car you get 10

13:16

grand out of a car you get Lappy get La

13:19

go sell that for 2 Grand you know what I

13:20

mean big bundles out of cars there was

13:22

bundles back the day just by breaking

13:24

into the car you the old GL they just

13:27

call it Glass City BR cuz there's

13:28

nothing from about smash window ground

13:30

there was no cars there cuz they all

13:32

gone what he's saying there he like they

13:34

actually here Ary rocks L see these

13:36

rocks here I'll give you a little

13:38

scientific explanation so under nearly

13:41

every tree in the city GLE doesn't

13:44

matter s Hills Wu darling Hurst even the

13:46

rich areas right for some reason the

13:48

government went and put these rocks

13:50

right under every tree a rock this big

13:53

brother it's like denser than glass

13:55

right so if you throw a little Pebble

13:57

like this at a car window it's silently

13:59

bust the car window right so we call

14:02

them Ary rocks the word comes from spark

14:05

plug because like back in the days you

14:07

know like the spark plugs the white

14:09

ceramic on the spark plug if you get

14:11

that white ceramic around the spark plug

14:13

off it's essentially the same thing as

14:15

this you throw a little Pebble at it and

14:17

burst the car window but these do the

14:19

same thing so we'll walk around nothing

14:21

in our pockets no nothing just with a

14:22

torch when you see something in a car

14:24

you get one of these little rocks from

14:26

any tree doesn't matter look they're

14:27

everywhere you pick up a little f like

14:29

this bar bar the car window pops so what

14:32

he's saying is like the windows shutter

14:34

so why he's saying Glass City is because

14:36

like you'll walk down the street

14:37

everywhere's just old windows he yeah

14:40

you walk in a street the whole street

14:41

will be on the gutter just all smashed

14:43

windows but there's no cars here

14:45

so you know like half the M you know

14:48

everything everywhere glass everywhere

14:50

glass everywhere it's all why they even

14:52

boarding houses up here hey

14:55

doing what holy C what by satellite into

15:00

15:01

15:12

15:13

15:15

rivalry 2024 these are Lanes every lane

15:18
