Gangs and Guns
It’s not breaking news that gang numbers are on the rise and organised crime is developing across the country.
What are the concerns … ?
Gangs are recruiting our next generation into a life of crime and violence. Should this concern us?
We can see the rapid increase in shootings, mostly in South Auckland and the willingness to use guns against the police.
In spite of the use of guns the gangs haven’t managed to kill many of each other, so they’re not helping in that respect.
Should we be concerned?
How long before the violence spills over from public concern to public injury. How do we hold organised crime responsible for this rather than just the individuals concerned?
These are questions men must ask themselves as we will be expected to deal with this.
Our government doesn’t show a great willingness to deal with the issue – Should they?
