The Independent MP for Hamilton West believes ‘our country has gone to the dogs’.
The spate of ram raids throughout the country is the fault of Police Minister Chris Hipkins, who, according to Dr. Sharma, is missing in action on the issue.
Sharma posted his thoughts on his Facebook page yesterday:
‘SIX ram raids and smash & grabs in Auckland LAST NIGHT at a shopping mall, fruit & vege shop, furniture store, liquor shop and two dairies.
‘It seems like the only place we are safe now is fashion shows where our politicians headline events with diplomatic security and police protection, while crime literally is taking place on our streets at the same time and our citizens as well as businesses are losing hope.
Government still hasn’t rolled out its $6 million preventative measures for 500 businesses that were announced in May.
The Police Minister Chris Hipkins refuses to do anything about the crime and says the issues are related to truancy relating to Covid. Well Police Minister Chris Hipkins should talk to the Education Minister Chris Hipkins and former Covid-19 response Minister Chris Hipkins, because the victims of these crimes sure as hell can’t get through to him in any of his roles.
The country has gone to the dogs.’
