"Marae-based youth courts are gaining momentum in New Zealand with a third scheduled to open next month.
The Rangi Tahi scheme, in which youth offenders are referred to a marae once they've been through the youth court, has been operating at Gisborne's Te Poho o Rawiri Marae for almost three years..."
I'm dead against ANY kind of separate 'Justice' system in this country!
One law for us all!
Not that I think much of what poses as 'Justice' in NZ, but this separatist nonsense is NOT the way to go. Anyone else see Sharia law next? Especially as we follow England in it's Lemming-like rush to self-destruction.
Fix what we have!
Also, ask yourself WHO has failed the kids who are to appear in front of these courts, in the first place...
