Da Gangs are running scams, lets get Mr Blue to crack down!
Yawn, okay here we go, the media have been quiet on the ’Da Gangs’ for a while, so it’s time to go have a wee poke isn’t it. Here is the latest ‘crises’ – da gangs is running ‘window washing scams’ and in the words of one cop, that money goes back to the gangs, and South Auckland authorities want a crackdown on these ‘washer gangs’.
This whole thing is a fucking farce, the cops and ‘South Auckland authorities’ are painting this out as some type of grand plan for the gangs – let’s just break it down shall we…
Why would the gangs be running ‘washer gangs’? They make millions on P don’t they? Why would they work a whole day for only $100? Isn’t this just the cops having a go and the ‘South Auckland Authorities’ are shitty that these brown kids are making a cut at the Otara markets? And let’s just say that da gangs are working legitimate work and washing windows, are you really saying that you want to turn them away from legitimate work? Are you actually saying that you would prefer they were invisible and making P in the backyard? Isn’t this just racist bullshit dressed up as a ‘concern’ because society is terrified of young brown men? Hey let me make a deal with you cops and ‘South Auckland Authorities’, instead of demonizing young brown men anymore than you do already, how about you clamp down on the well heeled men in late model cars that pick up children for sex off the streets of South Auckland? Have you done anything about that? I asked that question of the Police during a Stake Out episode targeting men trying to pick up 13 year old prostitutes off South Auckland streets, (70% of whom are there because they are being sexually abused by someone at home, the Police answered that they pick up the girls and drop them off at home)….BUT 70% ARE BEING SEXUALLY ABUSED AT HOME I yelled, the cops shrugged. How about South Aucklands ‘authorities’ and the cops try arresting the men buying children for sex in South Auckland rather than da gangs who are running ‘washer gangs’.
Police crackdown on washer gangs
South Aucklanders are being warned about window washing gangs following reports of intimidation and vandalism. One of the youth gangs runs a slick operation at the popular Otara flea market. It seems shoppers going to the market are easy targets for the gangs who confront drivers as they enter or when they park. There have been reports of damage done to cars if people do not pay up. It is highly organised and one gang leader oversees the operation from a nearby fast food outlet, sharing out the money collected amongst his members. The youths say their past has left them with little choice. "Most of us have got a criminal record that stops us from getting a job so we are out doing window washing" said one. Police have launched a crackdown as they are concerned about the level of intimidation and where the money is ending up. They point out that the sums involved, up to $100 per washer per day, are being filtered back to the gangs for their own purposes. The Manukau City Council is about to launch an awareness campaign to urge motorists not to give the gang money. Locals have mixed feelings. Some think the youths should find more gainful employment but others support the gangs. "They are motivated and they are out there trying to make their own money" said one resident. South Auckland authorities remain determined to force the window cleaners and their unwanted business off the streets.
