Portland is on pace to surpass its all-time record for homicides this year as its police department is grappling with a surge in gang-related shootings amidst a staffing shortage and continued calls for defunding. As of Thursday, there have been 37 homicides in Oregon’s largest city so far this year, more than six times the number recorded in the same period last year, according to The Associated Press.

National MP Simeon Brown took toto express his anger.
"By shutting down roads in Auckland for gangs - it sends all the wrong messages - emboldens the gangs - and poses the question whether gangs have more power than Police under this Government?" he wrote.
The gangs represented included Black Power, Two Eight Brotherhood, the Rebels, the King Cobras, the Mongrel Mob, the Killer Beez, the Sons of Samoa, the Head Hunters, and the New Zealand chapter of the Hell's Angels, according to 9news.com.au.
