Incoming Police Minister Mark Mitchell says he is pleased with the “robust” police response to an increased gang presence in Foxton ahead of what is expected to be New Zealand’s largest gang funeral.
Police continue to have a significant presence in the town north of Wellington, where three gangs have gathered for what is expected to possibly be the biggest gang tangi in New Zealand’s history.
“It’s very clear they have communicated there is going to be zero tolerance for gang members breaking laws or intimidating members of the public, or disrupting and interrupting people going about their daily business,” said Mitchell.
Oh no you don’t you little thug!
You promised crack downs!
You promised paramilitary policing!
You promised gang patches would be banned and that these funerals would never happen!
Luxon infamously promised Paddy Gower during their debate that he would order Police into Gang Tangi’s and rip gang patches off them!
And yet here is former mercenary Mark Mitchell giving the Police a pat on the back for their ‘woke’ policing???
Mungo no understand!
Pre-election it’s all smash da gangs, smash da gangs with the new Prime Minister promising Paddy Gower he would send in armed police to rip gang patches off gang members at Gang Tangi’s and yet with the largest ever Gang Tangi happening right now Mark Mitchell is all purring approval?
What a fucking fascinating turn of events form our former mercenary Police Minister.
Least we forget, Mark Mitchell was part of Simon Lusk’s and Cameron Slater’s attack plan to radicalise the National Party…
Simon Lusk is a far right-wing apparatchik who runs a private, self-styled “candidates school” for potential National Party candidates. Amongst those National MPs linked to Lusk are Taupo MP Louise Upston, Maungakiekie MP Sam Lotu-Iiga, Napier MP Chris Tremain, Rodney MP Mark Mitchell and former list MP Aaron Gilmore. Disgraced Minister, Judith Collins, is also an associate of Simon Lusk.
The media reported that some National Party insiders were so concerned by Lusk’s activities that they leaked documents to the media in 2012, and the following year. At least one senior Minister, Michael Woodhouse, discussed his growing unease with National’s president, Peter Goodfellow .
Looks like all the had to do was wait.
I am expecting Mark to make a symbolic hanging of the current Police Commissioner to stamp his authority and implant some gung-ho dickhead to undermine all the good work Police have done and to attempt some stupid symbolic crackdown that will generate counter productive results.
This is who we is now. This is what we have become.
A former mercenary Police Minister with dark connections to Dirty Politics.
If that scares you, don’t forget that Judith fucking Collins is now the Minister of the GCSB and NZSIS.
It’s like all the Chess pieces on the board have suddenly moved.
