More drive by shootings over the weekend as the Killer Beez backed by unpatched 501 syndicates move on the Tribesmen, King Cobras and Headhunters in the latest turf war over the ports, air port and Northland coastline for South American Cartel Meth supply chains.
Minister Poto Williams and the Police have responded to this unique gang war dynamic by raiding every sergeant at arms and gang enforcer in a warehouse bargain basement policing fishing expedition tactic – which will most likely fail.
The meth trade is worth over half a billion each year, the 501’s are prepared to use a level of violence well beyond the domestic gangs and have introduced intense stand over tactics to seize market dominance of the meth trade.
South American cartels are incredibly sophisticated and corrosive to an economy and political system – Drive by shootings are one thing, uber violent Drug Cartels bribing officials and using counter intel tactics are quite another.
Is the Government taking this Gang war seriously enough?
Not according to their own internal reports…
New Zealand’s Gang Intelligence Centre has been blighted by poor leadership and has been struggling to reduce the harm caused by organised crime.
Multiple sources RNZ has talked to said the leadership of the Gang Intelligence Centre was “clueless”, and one person said it was run by a bunch of buffoons.
Leadership were said to have no understanding of the gang environment, which in turn meant the centre was failing to have an impact on the harm being caused by gangs.
…rather than understand this as a unique event in the NZ underworld with the importation of a professional criminal 501 class capable of vast violence, the dumb cops want to arrest everyone with a patch and call that strategic.
The issue with the heavy handed anti-consorting laws in Australia that are being proposed here, is that it ends up corrupting the Police.
Australia has had its highest levels of complaints regarding corruption in the Police force for nearly 2 decades – the blowback of forcing the criminal fraternity underground is that they corrupt the police force – are our Police sophisticated enough to not get corrupted?
Of course they aren’t!
Mark my words, heavy handed non-consorting laws will drive a direct corruption of NZ police.
The obviousness of what needs to happen now is embarrassing because no one else has picked it up.
Why did the Killer Beez go down in the first place? They were originally a feeder gang to the Tribesmen in the late 1990s and early 2000s but they fell out with the other gangs when they started selling large amount of domestically cooked meth which stepped on the toys of the older more established gangs.
What happened was that all the other gangs turned secret state evidence over to the Police to arrange a mass take down of the Killer Beez leadership model stunting the entire gang.
The same tactic needs to be worked out now.
The Police need to meet with the presidents of the domestic gangs, get them all to agree to turn evidence against the 501s and take them all down in one hit using seperate Prisons to house them in so that there is at least 3 years without them on the streets.
The danger for us now is that South American Drug cartels are seeing NZ as a legitimate market, we need to urgently change that.
The Killer Bees are being supported by unpatched 501 syndicates to wage a war against the Tribesmen to take over Northland coastlines so that the meth can be imported directly by smuggling it over the beaches. The King Cobras run the airport while the Headhunters run the Port. The 501 syndicates are trying to succour safe supply chains for South American Cartel Meth but haven’t been able to beat back turf wars with the KC and Headhunters, so they are supporting the Killer Bees to take out dominance of the roads and coastline so they can import their meth directly that way.
This is all about market dynamics and raw power over a meth trade run by cartels who are using counter-intelligence and extreme violence to get what they want.
The point isn’t to go after every patched gang member, the point is to surgically strike the 501s who are generating the turf war.
I don’t think we have the capacity to intelligently counter this.
Sacking Poto Williams isn’t going to fix this.
