Heartfelt pleas to stop gang violence are dominating a South Auckland community Facebook group, Newshub reports. And locals in suburbs hit by a spate of gang shootings are organising community hui to develop safety action plans. Group moderator Antoinette Tiatia says, “The general consensus is that people are over it. They’re asking for consideration of the wider community who are innocent in all of this.” Police Area Commander for Counties Manukau East, Inspector Scott Gemmell said police are fully supportive: “There’s a lot of energised members of our community who want to help, want to feel safe and we’re here to support.”
