Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Black Power is a prominent gang in New Zealand. It was formed as the "Black Bulls" by Rei Harris and M ori youth in Wellington about 1970 in reponse to the rival Mongrel Mob gang and enemy White Power associated gangs. The gang then spread to other major centres and rural towns in New Zealand. Members are predominantly M ori and Polynesian. Like other gangs in New Zealand, they offer a surrogate family for alienated young men and are known to be increasingly active in organised crime, such as drug dealing. While the gang has distanced itself from violent acts of some of its members, for example, a child abuse case, police have in return accused the gang members of using violence as a 'learned behaviour from involvement in the gang'.show more
