    Where are the Maori and Pacific Elders who are supposed to be guiding the youths of their Whanau and Marae?
    Oh, I forgot; they joined the gangs due to lack of opportunities and societal barriers erected by the Old Boy / Colonial / Provincial / Masonic networks that keep certain elements of ‘profane’s society down and ‘in-checjk’!
