Look at that – the exact same gang dynamics leading to a gang war TDB warned about 2 years ago…
Drive-by shootings and “targeted assassinations” are becoming more prevalent in the criminal underworld, with the influence of Australian deportees likely to blame, an internal police report says.
It comes as gangs become more sophisticated in promoting their lifestyle – hiring professional crews to film them on rides and posting flashy videos of themselves online with wads of cash so that they can post them online in an attempt to recruit others.
A police intelligence report obtained by Stuff reveals parts of the country have experienced unprecedented levels of gang violence in the past year, much of which can be attributed to the influence of deportees who have been influential in the establishment of motorcycle clubs like the Mongols and the Comancheros.
…The 501 syndicates are targeting the Tribesmen because the Tribesmen move the meth from importers like the Head Hunters and Hells Angels (who bring meth in through Triad contacts out of Asia) and distributes it to regional domestic gangs. By disrupting the internal meth supply lines, the 501s are replacing them with South American cartel meth.
The ratcheting up of weapons by domestic gangs is a response to the 501 stand over tactics.
I’ve only been pointing this out for 2 years.
Let me be as clear as I can for my fellow New Zealanders. I know you think you know crime, I’m certain you think you know the Mongrel Mob, Black Power, Head Hunters etc etc are bad. You’ve had dick head politicians pretending that our domestic gangs were some major danger to society.
Which is bullshit.
The domestic gangs have come about through alienation, poverty and cultural resentment. To conflate them to serious organised crime misdiagnoses the problem.
What is happening now is an unprecedented moment in the NZ crime landscape.
501s bringing a level of violence from the Australian underworld into NZ has created a vast power struggle between the domestic gangs and the 501 syndicates. The syndicates have Mexican cartel contacts and this is what has sparked a meth price and turf war.
Allowing the South American Cartels ANYWHERE near us is extremely dangerous.
NZ is the sleepy Shire, the South American Cartels are the Nazgul. Allowing the Nazgul to set up a local store in the weekend organic Hobbit Farmers Market doesn’t bode well for the Hobbits.
There must be a multi pronged response to get the Cartels out of here. They bring with them an uber violence and sophistication of corruption outside the scope of our experience.
We stop this now or we will become irreparably corrupted.
There needs to be a sit down with the Police hierarchy and domestic gangs to work together to remove the 501 syndicates.
- The Police form a heavily armed and protected unit who hunt those syndicates.
- Special prison wings created for the 501s with long term rehabilitation programs alongside long sentences.
- Curtail demand by legalizing Cannabis & MDMA while making LSD, mushrooms and Ketamine prescription micro dosing.
- Deal with the current meth epidemic by spending a billion each year on 14 month rehabilitation programs for those addicted to meth.
We have to heal the addicted, ruthlessly punish the syndicates and curtail demand by legalizing other drugs.
We must do everything to keep the Cartels out, watering down demand, eliminating market share and locking up franchisees are our best bet.
This comes to a head when an innocent middle class white bystander gets shot in the cross fire of gang tensions. Once that happens NZ will cry out to Simon Bridges for his Raptor police.
