Who knew there are actually gangs thriving in paradise? New Zealand happens to be one of the most beautiful spots on earth, yet it is turning into a scary place for some of its citizens.
Thriving with natural wonders in every direction, one would think that there would be no reason for gangs to exist. As the above documentary reveals, this isn’t true. There are now more than 12 gangs that are modeled after those in Los Angeles.
As revealed by one of the gang members interviewed in the video, the scarcity of money inspires youth (and their initiators) to steal cars, break into homes, and rob people blind.
The majority of them drink heavily, take meth-amphetamines, and sniff gasoline.
One of the oldest and most notorious gangs in all of New Zealand is the Mongrel Mob. The following is a collection of photos depicting their members.
