Three major criminal gangs in New Zealand

20:04 |

Three major criminal gangs in New Zealand - Hell's Angels, Mongrel Mob and Black Power - while the Tribesmen are attempting to set up shop.gangs should be outlawed.
Laws says the way to attack gangs is not to give them longer sentences after they have been convicted, but to hound, harass and deny them access to benefits and state houses. The council will make a submission to parliament along those lines.
Tukituki MP Craig Foss made a special speech in parliament about the murder of central Hawke's Bay farmer Mark McCutcheon after the Gangs and Organised Crimes Bill passed its first reading under urgency this week.A 22-year-old gang associate has been charged with McCutcheon's murder.Foss said society needs to fight back and say enough is enough.gangs to take over too many of the country's streets, Police Minister Judith Collins says.The criticism comes after a woman and her two young children were allegedly threatened and forced from their Lower Hutt home by neighbouring Mongrel Mob members.

Pomare's Farmer Cres is well known as a Mongrel Mob enclave, with at least nine families linked to the gang living there. Police told The Dominion Post that their officers avoided the area.
More than 50 police swooped on seven properties and arrested 10 gang members and associates early on Tuesday morning.Ms Collins praised the decisive police action but said whole streets had been taken over by gangs in the past few years. The Government would act to disperse the groups."In a select committee I was on, Housing New Zealand actually confessed that they took gang affiliations into consideration when they housed them ... That's not acceptable. High and middle-income earners never have to deal with it. Poor New Zealanders who can't choose where they live ... are the most terrorised by these gangs."Housing NZ regional manager Pia Searancke said officials tried not to house rival gang members near each other, or to place too many people from one gang in the same area. But the corporation did not always know if people were gang members.The Pomare accused who face a variety of charges, including burglary, intimidation and cannabis possession could be evicted from their homes for breaching tenancy rules if they had committed crimes in the homes or intimidated neighbours, she said. A tough approach to tenancy breaches and "zero tolerance" to anti-social behaviour would be implemented.
