Shocking footage has appeared of rival youth gangs in Sydney who model themselves on some of the most difficult street gangs in Los Angeles.
The online videos show violent fights that break out in broad daylight amid growing tensions between the groups.
A police attack force has been established to investigate the juvenile crime epidemic in western and southwest Sydney.
A video shows young people connected to the 21 District gang as they attack another group outside of Fairfield train station.
A violent fight involving several young people outside of Fairfield train station was posted on YouTube earlier this month, which attracted nearly 17,700 views
The shocking images posted on YouTube earlier this month were entitled & # 39; straight hands – not knives like OneFour the dogs & # 39 ;, a reference to a rival gang of Druids.
Another disturbing video uploaded shows two men hitting each other at Sydenham train station while others encouraged them, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Nine men are currently in court for a fight that was witnessed last month by shocked spectators outside a busy shopping center in Parramatta.
NSW Police has set up a strike force to investigate the growing tensions between youth gangs
Reportedly, some youth gangs are linked to the Kariong riots of juvenile judges on the Central Coast last week.
Recent violence has prompted NSW Police to set up Strike Force Imbala three weeks ago, consisting of 20 detectives and analysis experts.
& # 39; They are very fond of rap culture (Los Angeles rival gangs) The Crips and Bloods and other violent groups, & # 39; an officer told The Daily Telegraph.
& # 39; It's about being at the forefront and letting these young members know that if you want to be part of a gang, you'll be the target of the police. & # 39;
Daily Mail Australia has contacted NSW Police for further comments, which is expected to release more details on the new strike on Monday.
Bendes have posted online videos of fights in broad daylight, including this one in Fairfield
Children from the age of 13 join gangs and are often still active in their early 20s.
& # 39; There is a danger that if you don't get some of the people involved early, they will be recruited by real criminal gangs like the bikies, & # 39; told Western Sydney University teacher and former NSW detective Dr. Mike Kennedy to the publication.
The recent violence comes when Sydney rap group One Four is known online with a song about street warfare.
The rap single Shanks and Shivs from Sydney rap group One Four about street warfare has drawn more than a million YouTube views
The group, which shares its name with the youth gang of Mount Druitt, has since March drawn more than a million YouTube views with the clip for the hit single Shanks and Shivs.
The rap group itself is not a gang member and says the name comes from the year in which they were founded.

& # 39; The lyrical content should not be taken literally. The events that take place are purely symbolic – both artists and makers do not allow violence. & # 39;
