Do we really need them.
During the last few years there seems to be building amount of gangs.
Every household knows of a family member involved in some sort of Gang.
Gee, even meet families that have members of the opposite sides at one table.
Worst of all Maori Gangs against other Maori Gangs.
Brother's, Cousins, Uncle's and Father's fighting against each other.
Ok, gangs have been around for year's. Things have gone too another level now.
Drugs and guns seem top be the thing now, when the old way was a bit of weed and despute where handled by a simple punch up. Can't forget chasing the greasy pig through the house.
Now it seems a knife or gun does a better job, than a fist.
Getting to the stage where the average Joe who loves to get his bike out on the weekend for a local charity run etc, is too scared to go because of gangs being there.
At least of all support the local organisations by not wearing Gang patches and enjoy the day out riding.
I am sure before they became members, like us just enjoyed the ride with other riders who just cruised around and meet other bikers from different places around the country.
I have meet a few Gang Members in my life, from Presidents to Prospects and they are generally nice guys away from their fellow members.
Have also come across some bad Prospectors who want to make a name for themselfs, that they do anything to get their name plasted around town as the tuffist dude in town.
Seen Gang Members from other Gangs meeting together in one place for a meeting, Gangs you would never think would be seen in the same room.
Had a knife pulled on me twice and had to fights with Gang Members, come on.
Both times they got us mixed up with some other guys that they were after. That is why people get scared of the guys.
Innocent kids now getting hurt, drive by shootings. Had a car drive up our street one night and heard a Gang shooting at another gangs house. What happens if they get the wrong house or hit someone who has nothing to do with their fight.
More and more older Gang Members leave their Patches behind after spending years in Prison to get away and live with their families, cause of all the time they have wasted being behind bars and haven't seen their kids grow up. Wasted their lives for what...
Asian Gangs now out there too, who else would supply the Gangs with their white powder and other little goodies to hand out to little boys and girls. Zombie Nation or should that be a Nation of Zombies (NZ).
Even kids are selling and supplying drugs and getting drunk at an early age.
Living on the Streets wanting to belong to a Gang so they either join the Cribs or Bloods.
Kids joining Amercian style gangs and learning young.
Some boy got stabbed over a cell phone and kids wearing gang colours.
Even dangerous to wear certain coloured shirts, because they could be Gang colours.
Will little boys and girls, take note:
The reason gangs want you so young is to steal and sell for them, is that you have mates and jobs that you can do for them to make money. How easy you are lead, because you are under age you can just about get away with anything. Then what happens to you when you are old enough to face a Judge. Do time or try and quit, by that time you are too late and can't be trusted because of your Police history.
Gangs are like a pyramid scheme, everything you do makes money for the guy at the top.
So Gangs leave the kids out of your way of life and just let them be kids.
What you do is your business but think of the elderly and kids that are scared to enjoy their lives.
There is enough violence out there now.
I find no problems with Motorcycle Clubs they are different as they love to ride and socialize with other bike riders, but Gangs a totally different story.
We are only killing off the kiwi, pump them with drugs or weapons.
Why not less more of us and we will be extinct.
Take it as the way I see it and make up your own minds on how you feel about it.
Just remember the average Joe.
Do you really know how many Gangs are out there in small country like ours.

More and more are also added as Gangs move into other towns to expand.
Real eye opener for you to know what is really happening.

$334 million (NZ) of drugs were seized.
That was just in Ecstasy and Methamphetamines, with large P labs found.
