  1. Fog cannons; which actually hides the identities of the robbers, as CCTV footage cannot see thru the ‘fog’.
    Better to have a shotgun or a Glock 40 mike-mike to handle the problems.
    Once one of the little gangsta prospect shits gets shot in the ass, then these ‘Ram and Burgle’ raids will come to a stop!!!
    Better to exercise the ‘Right to Self Defence’ under International Law and the ‘UN Right to Self Defence’!
    This is why we need a FULLY-RATIFIED CONSTITUTION AND A SECURE BILL OF RIGHTS THAT ALLOWS FOR SELF DEFENCE, SIMILAR TO THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN THE U.S., ALONG WITH ‘STAND YOUR GROUND LAW(S)’ AND ‘CASTLE LAW(S)!
    Disgusting that Kiwis have put up with this criminal crap that seems to be quietly approved by the other gang, known as the NZ Police…!
