South Auckland Gang Brawl leads to one death

Counties-Manukau Detective Schwalger admitted on One News that the force was stretched beyond its capacity with youth gang related crime. Sadly we have never heard from the outgoing Police Minister and local MP on the subject.

Ms Schwalger confirmed NZ Herald the brawl was gang-related, and said this and a number of other recent incidents highlighted the increasing problems of youth gangs in the Counties-Manukau area.


Disturbingly this case has overtones of the weekend's Birmingham riots I blogged on earlier, here. Similarly, the south Auckland gangs are drawing their inspiration from South Central Los Angeles gangs. The Police need to get their staffing in South Auckland up to strength asap.

Nintendo DS - Nintendogs Best Friends Version - Teal Bundle
I admit it - I picked up a copy of Nintendogs last week, and am totally hooked. Nintendo has really taken the "Tamagotchi-like" life simulation game to the next level with Nintendogs.
