Let’s not beat around the bush here.
We know the facts.
New Zealand First is proposing a radical overhaul of the youth justice system in a new member’s bill which will introduce a demerit points system for youth offenders.
To battle widespread criminal behaviour by young people socially DNA-ed for destruction as seen in Kaikohe last weekend, New Zealand First will, among other measures, repeal the anti-smacking law.
The first step to cutting crime in Kaikohe, where youth have been on yet another rampage, is to boost the police strength, says New Zealand First Leader Northland MP and Rt Hon Winston Peters.
