Gangs becoming more destructive

Re: ‘Some numbers re the gangs’ (Brigitte Horne, Times, June 29).

Clearly Brigitte spends a fair bit of time looking for reasons to discredit the National Party.

It was during their times in Parliament that the gangs were established, she maintains.

Their activities certainly became a lot more destructive in the last five years.

As for rehabilitation of some northern European prisoners, that was only possible for those who’d had a reasonable upbringing when they were young.

It would be almost impossible for those who grew up who’d never known decency in the first place.
