Poto's Popo Letting Gangs Now Shoot Up Viaduct Hotels
The Herald understands members of the Head Hunters opened fire after coming across members of the Mongols in the Sofitel, sparking an armed police callout, in an act of violence which police suspect could be retribution for the Mongols suspected of opening fire on the Head Hunters gang pad early Sunday morning.
Police Minister Poto Williams said it was also her understanding that the incident at the hotel was linked to a feud between the Mongols and the Head Hunters gangs.
The spin is that these evil 501's are upsetting everything in New Zealand and before they arrived our lads were a bunch of nice misunderstood choirboys. Which is of course bullshit. The traditional New Zealand gangs do not like the competition in terrorising the public with their patches and turf, and have orchestrated a hate campaign against the 501 gangs. All whom right-minded New Zealanders think are just as scum as the traditional New Zealand gangs.
The reality is Poto Williams is the softest token trifecta of a Police Minister in New Zealand's history. A joke. A woke joke of a Commissioner and no actual intent whatsoever of going after any of the real bad guys.
The simple fact they are allowed to wander around the area is a disgrace, no doubt intimidating in their patches and swagger. Showing off their latest purchases that should be collected under Proceeds of Crime legislation.
Fortunately the New Zealand silent majority of nice white middle class newly minted Jacinda voters will have conniptions if this continues. More than any other issue. New Zealanders do not like feeling unsafe. Stray bullets from gangland warfare is what the Yanks do, not the Team of 5 million.
The optics are awful for middle New Zealand.
Guns taken off law abiding New Zealanders but a Polynesian Police Minister, a large Maori representation in Cabinet, and ethnic gangs allowed to run amok into nice areas where nice New Zealanders hang out doing nice things and eating and drinking nicely. That is not what Labour supporters voted for. They voted for the thugs to stay where they should - in their state housing ghettos, committing crime against one and another.
As I have previously blogged back in December:
Maybe Poto can saddle up and visit all those nice, kind gangs and ask them to hand in their guns as the government did to law abiding New Zealanders when one lone random Australian came over to New Zealand and shot up a mosque?
No mention of gangs here though.
New Zealand’s first Polynesian Police Minister is going to have to face up very quickly to middle-class wrath from the masses if northern parts of Auckland and Queenstown become stomping grounds for gangsters to openly socialise at and bring with them their BFG's, blunts, bitches, baby Mamma's and beans.
Sounds like she is achieving nothing to date other than increasing the odds of a bit of Pb landing in your next latte or chardonnay.
