shkutzim?: Hoodlums or gang (of boys)

Shkutzim is the plural of Sheketz (or shegetz in Yiddish).
It means a goy, a non-Jew. The feminine form - Shiktza, is better known.
It's true that in the vernacular it can be used to describe a gang of
boys or hoodlums, because their behavior is likened to that of goys.

The literal meaning of sheketz in Hebrew is abomination.
A very non-complimentary term.

The following are some of the phrases I heard on the video/tape, but
that I'm sure I have transcribed incorrectly. Can anyone help me with
the correct spellings:
