I travel a lot, most recently (week before last) to Barcelona. Anyone who has ever traveled there knows that the pickpocketers on Las Ramblas are crazy.
Never been there but I understand from my travels to Switzerland and Italy that many of these gangs of youth in Europe are Gypsy (seriously, there was a large group living in a field just outside Biel the last time I was there) and over watched by older members who will step in and get violent if one of the pick pockets is confronted / cornered.
