Pretty much every week we see some headline about a “P bust” or a “Meth dealer” that has been apprehended by police. But this week just gone (end of October 2016) we have seen a whole community take a stand against the scourge that is Methamphetamine.
Ngaruawahia, a small township in Waikato, New Zealand, has had its fair share of meth problems. With burglaries on the rise (most burglaries are driven by the need for money to pay off the drug debt to the offenders dealer) and petty crime occurring daily, the township had seen better days.
Then, up stepped an unlikely solution to the towns problem, the local gang. The Tribal Huks. Please note that this blog is not to glorify gangs, nor is it to indemnify their actions in the past few weeks, instead, it is to highlight that something has been done, something extreme, and it has dealt with the overt P problem in the town.
The Tribal Huks gang took a stand against the meth dealer in the town after meth was offered to the some of the gang’s presidents’ family members. He took offence to this and “paid a visit” to the dealer. Polite words and not so polite words were no doubt exchanged and war broke out.
Yes, War. Shots fired, property damaged, injuries suffered (no deaths, at least, none that the public have been made aware of).
