Trust Back’s Call to Throw Gangs Out of State Housing

Sensible Sentencing Trust Back’s Call to Throw Gangs Out of State Housing

2nd March 2016

Scott is calling on Social Development Minister Anne Tolley to front up to the public with just how much Gangs cost housing New Zealand on a yearly basis and also to tell New Zealand why the tax payer should be funding these thugs and criminals in their day to day crime. Scott Guthie

Sensible Sentencing Trust’s Manawatu spokesperson Scott Guthrie is backing New Zealand First’s call to have gangs and anyone associated with gangs removed from state owned housing.

Scott says it is common knowledge and fact that neighbourhoods are repeatedly terrorised by gangs and leave people fearing for their safety and lives.

Whether it be Black Power, Mongrel Mob, Hell’s Angels, Nomads or any gang for that fact, they are all criminals and New Zealand tax payers shouldn’t be funding their life styles like we are now.

Housing New Zealand has a huge waiting list of good honest families wanting and in need of accommodation throughout the country so why should those families come behind the criminals like they are now.

Backing his words up Scott says you only have to look at the suburb of Highbury in Palmerston North Manawatu, where over recent years we have seen Gang murders, drive by shootings, P lab busts and serious assaults all in a heavily state owned housing area.

New Zealand First is right on the button with its call to throw Gangs out of state owned housing saving the tax payers millions of dollars per year by rent being paid on time and no refurbishment needed because of drug manufacturing.

Scott is calling on Social Development Minister Anne Tolley to front up to the public with just how much Gangs cost housing New Zealand on a yearly basis and also to tell New Zealand why the tax payer should be funding these thugs and criminals in their day to day crime.
