Cracking down... or are they?

The Counties-Manukau Police District says it will be arresting youths caught carrying weapons as a matter of standard policy.

This is a good move, but what is it doing to the undermanned District's ability to deal with other crime? And does it have enough resources to actually convict and punish those arrested? Or is the arrest itself supposed to be punishment enough?

More to the point,have the Counites Manuakau had a "level of tolerence policy" up until this point?
I know that the police have a thankless job and the level of support that they get from the courts and the government in dealing with brown youth crime
is so bad that it is more interference than help. And I know that the parents don't give a shit and I know that going to all the effort of making arrests when you know that the only result will be a nose stuck up in the air and an insolent sniff. And I know that they are risking their lives tackling armed and violent gang members while the Helens lap dog Rob and his ridiculous masters try to manipulate figures and change definitions to try and pretend that brown youth crime is dropping.
But just where the fuck do the police get the idea that ignoring (tolerating) packs of violent,armed and dangerous thugs wandering around our neighbourhoods
