町から麻薬の売人を一掃したのは・・・地元の現役ギャングたち!?

地域の若者を守るために、麻薬の売人を一掃したギャング集団が話題になっている。

ニュージーランド・ナルワヒャの町で、地元の民族系ギャング「Tribal Huk」が、地域で麻薬を売りさばく売人たちに24時間以内に退去することを命じ、たった2日で町から売人を一掃したという。

彼らは地域の若者たちが麻薬による悪影響を受けている現実を目にして、ついにアクションを起こした。彼らが事前に地元の若者たちに話を聞いたところ、約75%の若者が何らかのかたちで麻薬の影響下にあることが判明したのだそうだ。

この事態を重く見た「Tribal Huk」のリーダーであるジェイミー・ピンクさんが、2016年10月13日に地元の集会で異例の発表をした。麻薬の売人に対して、24時間の猶予を設けるので期限内に町から出て行くように、と事前通告をしたのである。

「Tribal Hukは、この町のギャングを長年束ねてきた。しかし、これまでに諸悪の根源を追い出したことはなかったので、少々申し訳なく感じる」と低姿勢のジェイミーさん。とはいえギャングの指令だけに、最初こそ紳士的に依頼するものの相手にとっては"従う以外の選択肢はない"ということを意味している。

もちろん麻薬を資金源にするギャングも存在するが、この「Tribal Huk」のリーダーは、以前から麻薬反対派。もちろん麻薬は収入源にもなるが、同時に破滅も生むからだ。彼は、地域の問題のひとつを見逃せなかったのだろう。

ギャングから設けられた最終期限が過ぎると、メインストリートから麻薬の売人が姿を消し、町に平和が戻ったように見えた。しかし裏側では、ギャングが徹夜で麻薬の売人5、6人が集まる部屋に突入し、彼らを退去させるという動きもあったらしい。

ある女性の証言によると、警告を無視した売人に対してギャングが暴力行為を働くのを目撃したという。しかし彼女は、若者に麻薬を売る売人にとって当然の結果であると考えており、過去3回も強盗に侵入されたが「Tribal Huk」がパトロールを始めてから町が平和になった、と証言している。

10月15日には、ジェイミーさんが「麻薬の売人を一掃するキャンペーンは成功した」とを発表。実際に、警察は町で暴力事件などが減ったと語っている。おそらくギャングのクリーンアップ作戦の効果もあるだろう。

そんなギャングのアクションに対して、住民からは「町から麻薬を一掃してくれた」「国にもっと彼のようなリーダーが必要だ」と賞賛する声が上がっているが、「ギャングは本当に問題を解決しているわけではなく、別の場所に移動させているだけ」と、新たな問題を指摘する声もある。

なお、このギャング集団は2年前にも地元の学校30校に通う子どもたちのために1日で計500個のサンドイッチを配るというアクションを行い、「サンドイッチ・ギャング」として地元メディアに取り上げられたこともあるそうだ。

That cat is up to something, and we want no part of it.
WHOA
"What, what is this?"
"You'd rather take a picture of a straw than take one of me?
"Took a picture of baby Avery and dachshund Milo tunneled behind her to get in the picture." -Submitted By: Diane Lenier
Watch out, baby!
Who's bombing who?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
"Oh sorry, wrong room."
"What are you reading?"
At least someone is trying to stop these from happening.
Nothing like a perfectly timed tail.
The beer is poison!
"Why are you taking pictures of butts?"
It's cool, he's the new boom mic operator.
"My turn next!"
Just really happy to be here.
At least that last guy is in the picture.
This cat's great-grandchildren are probably in this slideshow as well.
"Turn left on Sunset."
"I want to sit on the chair."
Sneak attack is underway.
Stopping inappropriate Facebook photo uploads since 2008.
How is he even doing that with his neck?
What are you doing here?
Also: "Soon"
Talk about a third wheel.
The other cat REALLY doesn't like glamour shots.
"Um, I think someone forgot my Fancy Feast."
"Do I smell fish?"
"Um, a little help?"
What is this contraption.
We're assuming that this guy was attempting to take an underwater selfie.
"Ignore me!"
He does not approve.
His night vision is perfect for interrupting hipster photo shoots.
He stood on that pinecone to get in this photo: commitment.
"Sorry, did I ruin your postcard?"
Still part of the family.
Maybe planned, still terrific.

Just wait for it.
"Well, hello!"
"I make this look easy."
The lion doesn't even know he is posing, he's just naturally suave.
This dolphin really deserves credit for making this picture great.
"Dog park fun (Jack, Marley, and Kiana) getting their picture taken when a great dane decides to make a cameo!!" -Submitted By: Brynn Fesler
"I'm part of the family too. Why shouldn't I be in the picture?"
"Another animal is getting more attention than me!"
Maybe this was planned?
"Oh, you were taking a picture?"
Just a man, a woman, and their horse.
Even dogs can enjoy 3D.
The photographer is holding a steak.
This donkey has a place to go.
HEEYYYY!
Quick window bomb before flying away.
Just gonna sneak in here.
Cool boat, dude.
Pretty scenic, huh?
Bet he didn't see that coming.
Is this cute or just incredibly creepy?
Finally worked!
Nope, FCC cat doesn't approve of this.
Get a room.
Down here!
He knew what he was doing.
Sweet picture, dude.
Classic.
HEY!
This probably ended well.
Don't get out of the car.
Double Bomb.
That couch looks pretty comfy.
Dude, pipe down over there.
What's he planning?
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
Up close and personal.
You're never too young to get photobombed.
Cute couple.
C'mon, ditch the girl and come play with this ball.
Not just any goat bomb, but a sarcastic goat bomb.
Sup?
Cool speech, bro.
Nice costume, kid.
Cheeeeeese!
This way's better.
A fun-filled day at the park.
What are you guys up to?
Seriously?
Poor dog never even saw it coming.
BEHIND YOU!
Bears have needs, too.
Don't let the hair distract you from the bomb.
C'mon, I'm cute too.
