No Minister

Read the touching story of how Mongrel Mob member conned a gullible public to donate money to help him turn his life around and get a job. He raised $1,364 via a Givealittle page.

Poutawa ’Puk’ Kireka, 33, gained worldwide attention in mid-2019 after stating he was finding it difficult to find a job with ’Notorious’ tattooed across his face. He said at the time ‘I will always be a mobster, but it’s important to show we can have better lifestyles. I want to bring some of the others on board this better lifestyle’.

What he conveniently forgot to mention was that three days prior to making the appeal a police search of Kireka’s home had found bundles of cash totaling just short of $110,000; 10.44 gm of methamphetamine and 0.698 gm of Ecstasy.

Kireka has been a member of the Mongrel Mob since 2008 and has served two prison sentences for violence-related charges.

And I thought that Givealittle had a screening process in place to edit out shonky requests for assistance … silly me.

When he said in the House the other day that gangs were out of control under Labour. He was referring to the fact that gang membership has increased 50% since Ardern took office from 5,343 to 8,006. And now the revelation that in this years budget Vote Police fell by $90m including a reduction of $63m in road policing, $4.5m in investigations and $5.5m in primary response (when you ring up to complain that your home has been burgled). That’s on top of the freeze in police salaries and police morale going south..

Labour’s soft cock approach to gangs was none better illustrated than by this photograph of the Mongrel Mob taking over a State Highway in the Hawkes Bay for the funeral procession following the tangi of a high ranking gang member.

Motor bikes/vehicles covering the whole road and note the vehicle traveling in the opposite direction forced over onto the berm.

And the response from Stuart Nash, local member and one time Police Minister … arresting them ain’t the answer, we need alternative strategies.

Clearly Labour’s alternative strategy is based on one law for gangs and another law for the rest of us. Soft cock indeed.
